Looking for that perfect couple’s get-away? Then, Plover’s Nest is the ideal venue for you! Take a short walk to a small local beach, or a longer stroll to miles of beach. Located on a cul de sac on Plum Island – Plover’s Nest is that perfect balance of a quiet location that’s just minutes to all the action!

Newburyport is a 5-minute drive and has so many accolades: best place to live in Boston’s North Shore, Most Charming Downtown, and host of Hallmark Holiday movies. Why? Newburyport’s quaint historic downtown boasts excellent restaurants, unique boutiques, cultural venues (theatre, concerts, museums), and waterfront fun (whale watches, deep sea fishing, sunset cruises, & more)!

Plover’s Nest first welcomes you with outdoor gathering spaces – Adirondack chairs and bistro dining on the covered deck … and you haven’t even opened the door yet! As you enter Plover’s Nest, the home opens to a beautiful kitchen, comfy breakfast bar, and cozy living room.

The kitchen is nicely appointed with high-end appliances: fridge, a 3-burner induction cooktop, a combination microwave & convection oven, and dishwasher. The breakfast bar makes that morning coffee oh so convenient – everything’s right at your fingertips: Keurig coffee maker, coffee, and cups!

The living room with cozy couch & chair, big screen smart TV and a fireplace. The perfect place to snuggle.

Just off the kitchen is the full bathroom with large walk-in shower.

Step out the back door to find the outdoor shower and gas grill.

Ascend the stairs, to arrive at the romantic sleeping loft with en-suite bath. The queen bed is embraced by 90-degrees of water views. Guests can enjoy stunning sunsets! The ideal place for that quiet drink is the upper deck: take a seat at the table; relax, soak in the water views, and watch the stunning sunsets! Hidden behind the doors, guests will find the ½ bath and laundry closet.

**** Explore Plum Island - by foot, paddle or pedal.

Plum Island is a 6-mile long barrier beach that extends south of Newburyport. Most of it makes up the Parker River Wildlife Refuge, which is visited seasonally by nearly 300 bird species.

Walking on a beach across a National Wildlife Refuge, hearing the waves crashing on long, sandy beaches, watching birds and deer nearby…

A walk is a nice introduction to the extraordinary diversity of the Plum Island scenery. Take a walk both on the beach and on the main Refuge road, which offers wonderful views on the Plum Island River marshes and the Broad Sound.

Plum Island creates a nice protected bay which leads to marshes along the Parker River - take a kayak or paddleboard tour through the marshes.

A great place!

My wife and I spent two nights at Plover’s Nest and it did not disappoint. Everything inside and out was brand new and super clean. The short walk to the beach for the gorgeous sunset was one of our many highlights. We also enjoyed the nearby shops and restaurants on PI and everything that the town Newburyport had to offer. We would absolutely recommend Plovers Nest to any couple wanting a relaxing and comfortable getaway.

Great Plum Island Stay
5/5 stars
Clean and cozy stay at Plover's Nest on Plum Island. This was just a short staycation for us and the house was exactly as listed and even better than the photos. The iTrip team was very communicative and helpful. We had a minor issue with our coffeemaker and they stopped by to replace it in the same day. I was not expecting that level of service, but greatly appreciated it. You can tell they really care about guest experience. Plover's Nest was spotless and I'm not just saying that. Their attention to detail and providing a well stocked house was appreciated. We will definitely be back.

Plovers Nest - Plum Island Massachusetts
5/5 stars
If you need a quaint, charming house for 1 or 2 people that will meet all of your needs, RENT THIS HOUSE! You will want for nothing. Lots of windows to let the fresh breeze blow through. A bed more comfortable than any hotel. Great decor. Anything and everything you want is here. The house was absolutely spotless. Everything is first class inside and out. Convenient to the water, restaurants, shopping, all of New England. That's just the house. iTrip Vacations made this even better. Any and all questions were answered quickly and thoroughly. Everyone with whom we conversed was professional, courteous, and friendly. The combination of iTrip Vacations and Plovers Nest made this the best vacation my wife and I have had in years. Thank you. We will be back.

Liann and “company” are a genuine and proactive management company. They went above and beyond in helping and answering our questions. There wasn’t anything too small or too large for them to do to make our stay in one of their properties a five star experience. We will certainly take a look see at their other properties in the future. And, most of all, we enjoyed meeting and visiting with Liann and her husband because of a dead battery! Alice and Mike T.

The place was great- very small but well appointed clean and sunny. There were no sheets for the pull out bed and I received no reply when I inquired about it during my stay.

Absolutely Lovely Plum Island Cottage
5/5 stars
My wife and I had a magical weekend at Plover’s Nest - a lovely cottage on Plum Island, Newburyport. The cottage is very charming, well decorated, has beautiful water/sunset views and the location is ideal to go to the beach, explore the Nature Preserve and drive into the locely downtown area. The weekend was perfect. I highly recommend Plover’s Nest for anyone looking for a relaxed getaway with New England charm.
