About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

If you are looking for an authentic Plum Island beach house experience, this is the cottage for you. Relax on one of the rocking chairs on the 4 season enclosed porch and enjoy ocean breezes and the quiet buzz of island life. 'The West Wind' is a very cute, very clean, renovated vintage cottage with many charming, features maintained but with all the conveniences for today's living. It is 60 seconds' walk from a choice of beautiful beaches including one which is great for younger children, at the more peaceful lighthouse end of the Island on Northern Boulevard. The cottage will suit families or small groups of mature adults. Sleeps 4-6. Living room, dining room, completely new kitchen with new appliances and brand new shower room, laundry/half bath. 3 bedrooms - incredibly comfortable white iron queen bed in first, twin beds in second and full bed in third - all on second floor. Original, refinished heart of pine wood floors throughout. Newer central air conditioning (not window conditioners), new windows, central heating and new insulation will keep you comfortable. Nice partial ocean and basin views from upper floor. A well behaved and supervised dog or two are welcome!

Plum Island is a barrier island on the North Shore close to the NH and ME borders. The nearest town is minutes away - stunningly beautiful Newburyport - which is on the Merrimac River. It has a wealth of shops, restaurants and historic sites to visit and is close to Water Parks, zoos and farms to visit for fruit picking etc. Plum Island is a peaceful place with all the necessary amenities and lovely white sandy beaches, and a protected wildlife sanctuary.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are a family of 5 who live in nearby Newbury.

Why the Owner Chose Plum Island, Newburyport, MA, USA:
We fell in love with the light on Plum Island. it is quite unique and one of the last coastal towns in the area that is still relatively authentic. We wanted an original house with character to capture the true essence of PI and we found it with the West Wind. We renovated it this winter - all new shingles, windows and roof as well as a new kitchen, shower room and wc/laundry!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The porch is a key benefit. It has also been completely renovated with many windows with screens, for nice ocean breezes. You can either relax on the wider part with friends or while away the time on a rocking chair at the front section. The house is also one of the last remaining original cottages. It is almost 100 years old and we have restored it to retain much of it's character while making it suitable for modern day living.
