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.

Even better than it looks

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, comfortable and in a great location. I loved the porch with rocking chairs and a table to enjoy my morning tea. The house is bigger than it seems in the pictures. We had a wedding, so entertained family all week and at one point fit 10 people for a casual dinner. The only suggestion would be to have more dishes (for everyday use, not big dinners), a minor issue. Jill was welcoming and helpful and everything was super. We normally rent in Plum Island, but I think next year we will rent this house again. Thank you, Jill.

This was a great home to stay in with a great location. the front porch was great for b'fast.

  • 5 of 5

The beds were very comfortable. We grilled our first night and had friends over for dinner. The home had everything we were looking for. We walked into downtown Newburyport and along the boardwalk. It was nice to stay in a regular neighborhood and be able to walk into town. I would highly recommend this house. The other families that stayed with us enjoyed it as much as we did.

Jill's property is beautiful and so well maintained! The neighborhood is very nice, too.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable, and we lacked for nothing. The living room and dining area were large enough for 5 of us to sit and spend time together. The kitchen was very well equipped and perfect! The beds were also very comfortable. The front porch was awesome even on chilly October days!

The city of Newburyport is quaint and the shops are unique. The location is good for traveling up and down the coast.

We would highly recommend Jill's house! We really enjoyed our stay ... Glad your house was available Jill!

Beautiful house in a great location

We felt so at home in this house!

Spacious rooms, great kitchen but our favorite was the large front porch. Sat there many nights chatting with wine. Jill is a great host. Hope to stay here again someday.

Quiet, comfortable and (most importantly) spotlessly clean

Newburyport is a beautiful and historic town a quick 45 minute drive from Boston, MA. There are over 50 restaurants in this port town, including amazing seafood options, Mexican, Italian, Indian, Chinese and more. Spend your next summer vacation at our spacious, sun-filled bungalow, nestled comfortably in a quiet residential neighborhood in Newburyport's North End. Our home is conveniently located a five minute drive from downtown, three minutes from a convenient local shopping plaza with two grocery stores, and ten minutes from the beaches at Plum Island.
