Beautiful house!
5/5 stars
I thought the home and location were beautiful! On the map it looked like the water might not be accessible/within walking distance from the house, but it was (it's more of a rocky shore/tide pool kind of area than a beach, but Plum Island was only a 5 minute drive away, so...). The neighborhood was historic, clean, and expensive. ;) I loved that we had so much room and privacy and views -- especially for less than we would have paid to accommodate the same number of people in a hotel! It was an absolutely beautiful place to stay! Thank you so much!
