  • Beautiful, well appointed house on Plum Island

    "I live in Newburyport, only three miles away from this location, and we rented the house off-season for my family to stay in when they were in town visiting. It was November and a little too cold to make use of the outdoor space but the inside of the house was warm and comforting. Eleanor was a very responsive host and the house had all the essentials you would need for a short or long stay. Although not right on the beach, the lot across Northern Boulevard is empty so you could still see the sunrise and the ocean from the second floor. The bedrooms do not have TVs and a large dinner table make the house conducive to time with family or friends. If you are looking for a party house at the beach this is not it but if you are looking for a beautiful comfortable space to stay and enjoy all the area has to offer, you've found it."

  • Comfortable house, great location.

    "This was our first time at The Harpoon and may not be our last. We have been in some newer and higher-end houses on Plum Island and after a week this summer The Harpoon ranks high on our list. There is nothing fancy about the house -- just good character -- and that is just fine. Compared to other homes this one is prepared for vacation renters. It is not crowded with personal items, nor are most closets and cupboards off-limits, both of which can make you feel like you are intruding in someone's home. The main floor is open. Comfortable living room, good kitchen and eating area, good-sized bath. A plus is a separate room -- call it a reading room -- which is a nice feature if you want to have a place to sit quietly and look at a book or to play games, which we did. The downstairs (ground level) is partially finished and fully adequate as a third sleeping area (with bath and laundry). The upstairs (second floor) consists of two bedrooms and plenty of room and closets. The only thing I would note about the upstairs is the flooring, which is also is the ceiling for the first floor. Without carpeting and the usual air separation between floor and ceiling squeaks and other sounds travel easily between the floors. If that is a downside (a minor one) there also is a big upside about the house: the big deck. There is plenty of room to relax and recreate with the kids. Plenty of comfortable chairs and a nice outdoor dining table set that easily accommodated eight. Umbrellas were there for our use but we didn't feel the need to use them. And if the deck is nice, the location is even better. From that deck we can see water to the west (tidal area) and north (the Merrimack as it nears the ocean). The walk to the beach on the estuary takes less than a minute. If we wanted to walk to the ocean side it would have taken 5 minutes. To the playground even less. And with the Plum Island Lighthouse immediately on the south side of the property, we had an element of privacy as well as nice sight. Last, the very pleasant owner of the home was responsive to our questions and attentive to details at the house. We thank her for our week at The Harpoon and hope to return."
