Description of the Newburyport vacation cottage rental
Location...Location...Location...that says it all! Spectacular sunsets, private sandy beach, panoramic Harbor views of Downtown Newburyport, the Arctic Cottage offers you one of the best locations on Plum Island to enjoy your family's vacation, or week-end getaway!

Imagine yourself relaxing on the wrap-around porch...snuggled up with that novel you've been wanting to read for months now...the sounds of children frolicking in the water and playing on the beach located within steps of your front door...peaceful and tranquil - exactly how your vacation is supposed to be!

Take a stroll down the beach and purchase tickets for the next deep sea fishing excursion to catch "monster" Haddock, Cod, Pollack, and Halibut. Plan an evening of fun aboard one of the Nightly Dinner Cruises departing from Plum Island Point and dance the night away under the stars. For the boating enthusists, the Arctic cottage also has a deep water mooring that's available to all guests of the cottage. Come and enjoy boating in some of the most scenic waterways along the entire East Coast! And for the avid fisherman, these waters are World-famous for the best Striped Bass fishing in New England!

This 1920's vintage Plum Island cottage - known as the "Arctic Cottage" is one of the oldest cottages on Plum Island. Originally built as a seasonal cottage, many of it's architectural features were designed to take advantage of it's seaside location. The distinctive wrap around porch that provides shade and shelter after a long day out on the beach...the "pocket" windows that mysteriously disappear into the walls to take advantage of the summertime breeze. The expansive windows throughout the cottage that brings the outdoors - inside...transforming the cozy beachfront cottage into an "on the water" experience! To get a "bird's eye" view of Plum Island and to see the cottage's location...go to on-line Maps and enter the property address - 82nd Street Newburyport, MA.

This home is much older than appears online. Other houses are right on top of you. The bedrooms in this home are not private, as the walls do not go all the way to the ceiling. Inside, this home is very, very small and has only one bath room making it very hard for more than three people. The stairs going up to the bed rooms are a death trap. You would not want anyone with small children or elderly adults with you as they would not be able to go up and down the stairs. Beach in pictures looks nice but in fact is quite junky and has more mud than sand. Do not be taken by this home as rates are very, very high for what you will get. Please, please, if you must, see this house in person inside and out before you put any money down. Please take your time to look at alternatives as there are other very nice waterfront homes on this island for the same rates or less. We viewed several while we were there that are ideal for future stays. They were beautiful compared to this monstrosity. I work hard for my money and am sure you do also, so please get what you pay for and do NOT be taken by this rental. Do not drive or fly for hours only to arrive to find this. You will be truly disappointed.
