Guestbook comments from the manager

"The best spot ever"! That is what our family and friends had to say about 62 Riverfront East. We have rented vacation homes on Plum Island for many years and have always looked forward to our two weeks at the beach. Over the years it has become more difficult to find a place with "water view" and a feeling of space and privacy. Last January I began my search for our August place to be and happened upon an ad for this beautiful spot - talk about a water view! The house is perfect - all the conveniences and no clutter - very clean and efficient and comfortable and surprisingly spacious for it's footprint - all the charms of a beach cottage with just the right modern additions. The kitchen is well equipped and a great work space - we enjoyed many delicious meals created there. The outside is spectacular - pictures are worth a thousand words but even they cannot capture being there - the air, the light, the sky, the river, the preserve, the birds, the peace and tranquility. Jonathan is a gracious host and provides many extras - equipment, information and enthusiasm - he loves this place and wants you to love it also. It's a great central location with easy access to many of our favorite haunts and we are looking forward to our return - the "best ever" vacation spot!

My husband and I just spent a week at this vacation home and our only problem was that a week wasn't nearly long enough. Jonathan is a terrific host, and the cottage is in a perfect location for a wide variety of activities, or no activity at all if you just need to unwind. It is equipped with comfortable furniture for reading or movie watching, and the kitchen has everything you could need if you enjoy cooking meals at "home." We loved being able to launch our kayaks from the dock, and enjoyed some beautiful sunsets from there as well. We are already thinking about our next vacation at Jonathan's on the Parker River!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished two weeks at the cottage. We loved it! So quiet, but still close to Newburyport, restaurants, Plum Island etc. The Parker River is so pretty. We brought our kayaks and our boat which the dock accommodated nicely! The house was very clean and had everything we needed. Jonathan, the owner, was so accommodating and easy to work with. We hope to be back next summer!

Beautiful cottage

Just finished our second week at the cottage. We had a great time catching striped bass, and boating out in Plumb Island Sound. The cottage had everything we needed. A beautiful place and we hope to be able to come back next summer.

Fantastic spot on the Parker River. So great to have our boat at the dock! We were lucky to have perfect weather that week and were out on the boat every day exploring Plum Island, Ipswich Bay, Crane Beach, etc. Newbury and Newburyport are great. Loved getting corn & other fruits & vegetables at Tendercrop Farm 5min away. House was perfect and Jonathan, the owner, couldn't be nicer.

Great vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Can't recommend this place enough!! My family and I had a wonderful vacation!!! It is exactly as described, surrounded by BEAUTIFUl views!! We especially enjoyed being able to fish off the dock and kayak daily! The owner Jonathan also provided bikes which we happily took advantage of. This is a great place to stay, just a short drive to the beach and downtown Newburyport. We will definitely be back!!!:-)
