About Jen Cookke

We are a family of 4 who are beach lovers and have been vacationing on Plum Island for many years. We think that no other beaches in New England compare to Plum Island and we also love the town of Newburyport and the surrounding areas. The area has a very unique balance of farmlands, natural beauty and modern amenitites that we truly enjoy as a family.

Jen Cookke purchased this house in 2010

Why Jen Cookke chose Newburyport

We had been looking to purchase a home for many years on the island but most of the houses were very old and were located on small lots with little privacy. We had heard about this house and were thrilled to find a house that appealed to us both outside and inside. The house is brand new, worry free and finished to the level we are accustomed to at home. The studio above the garage allows us to have family and friends over and provides a perfect place for guests to have privacy.

Then we saw the sleeping porch which we all fight over to sleep on a beautiful summer night.

What makes this house unique

The location of the house beats most areas on the island. We are within two blocks of the basin beach where the water is calm and perfect for young children to play and to kayak and paddleboard. Two blocks on the other side is the ocean beach for long walks, great surf and long walks.

The perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the first week of September before the kids went back to school. The house is practically new and inside and outside are perfectly maintained. It's a classy, but comfortable home. The owners have great taste and we're very accommodating.

We'll defiantly be back if we can snag one of the few weeks they rent the house

Beautiful home, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a fantastic location. The house is lovely and very spacious, very comfortable and especially attractive. There was plenty of room for the extended family. Jen was especially accommodating and helpful (thank you, Jen). The house is just a short walk from two contrasting beaches where we swam everyday, and we enjoyed visiting National Wildlife refuge very much. There was plenty of variety in the area to keep us all entertained without having to get in the car. This is a wonderful place!

Modern, exquisite condition in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here this past August and we had a terrific stay. We had been staying in a much older property for many years but neighbors told us this family rents for a few weeks in the season and we were lucky enough to get a week here. The house is like new with really high end furnishes and finishes. It is a relaxed, comfortable house with every amenity possible, kayaks, hammock, sitting area with outdoor fireplace and my favorite, the screened in sleeping porch. Sweet family who really cares who is in their home and will do whatever they can to have you enjoy PI as much as they do.

Amazing Views and House

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing itself. A new kitchen and nice fireplace. The beach is right down the road. It says 2 blocks but it is on a small really short street and the basin in amazing for young kids. The island its self has a ton to do and with great food right in town. We have stayed in other rental houses before but this one defiantly beats all the others!

Immaculate, classy, serene home in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Our week here has been fantastic. The house is brand new with every high end amenity you can think of. Not at all like the other older houses we've stayed at on the island. We've booked through the next three summers just so we can reserve our spot!

Map

Plum Island/Newburyport is a hidden gem. Forget the overly crowded Cape Cod and islands and come to scenic Plum Island.

The beaches wrap around the island and offer the quiet water of the basin side, perfect for young families and the expansive ocean beach which is great for shelling, boating and surfing.

After your beach day, ride your bike into the historic and quant village of Newburyport with great shopping, dining, live music and festivals.
