New England charm

  • 5 of 5

I actually live in Nbpt but had to be out of my house for renovations. I have a very nice house from the late 1800s (not as old as this house) but it certainly doesn't have the view this place does. This house is the epitome of old New England charm with it's wood beams in the ceiling and old wide pine floors and shingled siding. It was warm, cozy and quiet. I would stay here again in a heart beat and I will be sure to recommend it to friends/family that are visiting and prefer their own space. Thank you for sharing your home, not only to me but to my two Shih Tzus as well.

The home was a great mixture of historical, modern and comfort!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the ambience of this home, the location to downtown Newburyport and the restaurants close to us! I loved the modern kitchen and prepared meals for our special occasion of Valentines Day / Presidents Day. I recommend this home for couples and a small family to vacation near the gorgeous beaches and shopping! Steve has his house well stocked in the kitchen and bathrooms!! Love, love this place! 💕

Great weekend getaway!

This is the second time we have stayed at 164 Water Street. Love it even more! Stroll the streets of Newburyport, enjoy seafood by the water, sip wine on the deck of this gem. Thanks for the perfect spot!

Great little Newburyport location with a lot of charm and character. Loved the ability to walk to town and make a quick run down to the beach....and the sunsets from the deck off the living room were awesome.

Perfect location, incredible house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in this perfectly located house. We spend great time with our 3 teenagers at Salisbury Beach (10 min by car) and Boston (1 hour drive). We enjoyed Newburyport's restaurants and boutiques at a walking-distance from the house. The upper deck is a great spot to have a glass of wine while looking at the sunset colored sky. We just left and we already want to go back! We also enjoyed the historic district walking tour we made with the help of the guides we found in the living room! Thanks for that too!

Unique home that made our month in Newburyport very special.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of June at 164 Water Street and are still swooning!The home sits on the south end of this charming port town and it is an easy walk to everything including great restaurants, shops and the river walk. This house gives you a great home base for all the activities of Newburyport.

But don't think it is only about Newburyport or the beaches of Plum Island. This home is a step back into history and is very special. First, the deck! Starting the day with coffee watching the sun rise from the deck is spectacular. Late afternoons, our favorite entertaining always started on the deck overlooking the water. Cool breezes were almost always there to refresh us. Our next favorite spot, the courtyard! Always provided a great spot to BBQ and enjoy dinner when we took a break from eating out. The gourmet kitchen brings a high level of sophistication to the home and we loved cooking inside too!

The owner responded to any questions in a flash. Even told us the home's history which added to our appreciation of this home.

We already booked our next trip to Newburyport and love knowing we will be back at our favorite spot on Water Street in October!
