About Jill Porter

I am a mother of two grown daughters. We have resided in Newburyport since 1991. I work in a nearby school system and love Newburyport. As an avid cyclist, I enjoy riding during the warmer climate months at the Parker River Wildlife Refuge on Plum Island. Complimentary amenities I will leave for visitors includes a year-round duck pass which provides you and your travel companions access to the wildlife refuge and free beach parking every day of your stay.

Jill Porter purchased this bungalow in 2002

Why Jill Porter chose North of Boston & Greater Merrimack Valley

This craftsman style home was built in 1925 and has been lovingly restored to provide comfort, while maintaining many original features. Enjoy our home with your family and friends as you explore Newburyport and all it has to offer!

What makes this bungalow unique

Enjoy the local shopping options, close proximity to Boston, easy drive to the beach and diverse dining options in town. Spend time walking along the boardwalk in downtown Newburyport, and along the connecting Rail Trail which is great for walking, running, cycling and nature walks with friends, families and children.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stacy and her family have rented from me for the past two years. It has been my pleasure to host her family for both of their stays! I would love the opportunity to host them again next summer!

Would Rent Here Again in a Heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house in a great neighborhood. 3 couples stayed here, comfortably. We were able to cook a meal for the 6 of us plus 5 other guests. It was a sweltering weekend but the AC kept us comfortable. Everything in the house worked as it should. We had all of the comforts of home.

It was exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding in Salisbury. The house was very close to the beach. It was perfect for 2 couples and 3 kids. Plenty of room throughout the house and a nice big front porch. I was impressed with the ease of checking in and out of the house. Jill made it a very nice process and had deposit back within a week !

Beautiful Old home

  • 5 of 5

Jill was great even though we booked at the last minute she did everything she could to get it ready for us. Place was very comfortable with lots of character. Photos are a very good depiction of the property. 20 minutes walk to downtown/boardwalk. Would stay here again.

Great space!

  • 5 of 5

We had a positive stay during our 5 night stay. Close enough walk to downtown Newburyport (about a 20 min walk) and some local trails. While the house allows dogs (ours came with us) there is no grass on the property however the hospital is at the end of the road a few houses down with space for your pet to potty. Jill was very responsive with all our questions prior to our stay and the house is stocked with all the essentials. This was a very positive experience!
