Bedrooms 1
Space 450 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

The "Little House" is a one bedroom cottage on Plum Island. We have recently done renovations to the cottage so it now has new appliances, shiny hardwood floors and two skylights. There is a full size bed in the bedroom, a set of bunk beds and a pull out couch for sleeping. The kitchen has basic utensils and cookware (if cooking will be part of your vacation plans). If your vacation doesn't include cooking, the island has 3 restaurants to choose from that are a bike ride away. Downtown Newburyport is approx 4 miles away and there are many dining options there. Newburyport also has festivals and outdoor concerts throughout the summer months. The island itself has some of the best striper fishing around and is well known for its many habitats of birds and the Reservation that is on the southern portion of the island. There is a small sandy beach on the river a short walk away from the cottage. This beach is the perfect beach to watch a summer sunset!

Small and efficient greeat access to riverside beach.

  • 4 of 5

This is a small cottage that has everything you need. Very good use of the space with a small yard for bbq, fire pit and outdoor enjoyment. About a mile from the Ocean side beach.

Very cute cottage. A few improvements and it would be great!

  • 3 of 5

There were tons of cob webs everywhere when we arrived, I had to spend money and time cleaning, the vaccum cleaner hose kept coming detached from the floor attachment making it basically useless and there wasn't a single broom in the house, making clean up of beach sand impossible. The curtain rod above the sliding glass doors was a cheap thin rod made for a valence and not paneled curtains. The rod fell down constantly and hit my children several times. The outdoor water spicket did not work so we couldn't wash our feet off after returning from the beach. Lastly, we had to throw half of our groceries away after ants got into the cabinets. Regardless we had a great vacation and the kids had a blast!

Owner's Response: I am very sorry to hear of your experience at our cottage. I wish you had made us aware of these problems either by text/phone or when Steve came over midweek to check in on you. I have bought a new curtain rod and hanger for the shade over the slider. I will drive over and check in with our current tenants to see if they want me to put it up now or after they leave. While I am there I will check on the ant situation. We have never had a problem like you have described previously, so we will want to fix that as soon as possible. The broom is in the shed so I will move that into the cottage. Thank you for wanting to take care of the cottage by vacuuming and sweeping. I have to admit I didn't think that any of our tenants used those so they were not readily available. Thank you for your comments and I really hope that these unfortunate events didn't ruin your vacation.

The cottage was really lovely. Everything was clean and modern. Great location to walk to the beaches or a short bike ride to downtown Newburyport. We had a great weekend and would absolutely recommend this cottage to anyone!
