Great Experience in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

My family couldn't wait to get back to this cottage. We stayed once before and it was perfect: well- stocked, clean, cozy, comfortable. The beach is close enough to walk to barefoot. You can hear the waves at night! The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. Karen is fantastic to deal with: responsive, friendly and honest. I could not recommend this cottage highly enough-- your family will have a great time!

Great for beach lovers

  • 3 of 5

Overall, this cottage is nicely situated and well equipped but in need of lots of TLC. A short walk to the ocean is its best quality. Interior is dark and dated, and deck crowded with too much furniture for the space. Great for folks who will spend lots of time enjoying the beach.

Great cottage steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been back twice now to this cottage. The owner Karen is lovely and the accommodations are perfect for our family. Plum Island has so much to offer and the cottage in the middle of it all, acting as a great home base for us. Fully equipped, even two coffee machines, which is important to us. Beautiful vacation and we will certainly be back next year.

pleasant stay right near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing on Plum Island for 8 years, and this is our first in this neat little place. We really enjoyed our time there, its comfortable and cute, and we loved having AC for the 90 degree days. We stayed two weeks, went to the beach (a two minute walk) every day but two, grilled our dinner on the deck every night but the two it rained, and just generally had a great time. The cottage is clean and just rustic enough, with the right amenities for a pleasant vacation. We definitely want to come back!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at this cottage and it was as great as the first time 5 years ago. The place was immaculate and I had a great time relaxing here with my husband this time. I finally got to meet Karen and once again she was very helpful with suggestions for places to eat and things to do. The house had everything we could want and was a great place to relax on a cold rainy day. Listening to the waves at night was a great way to fall asleep. Hope to get back again! Thanks, Karen, for sharing your place with us.
