Wonderful home on the salt marsh

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious and well kept home on the salt marsh in Ipswich, a small sea coast town on the North Shore. The kitchen and dining room are large--we had 11for dinner one night. The screened porch has lovely views of the marsh and lots of birds flock to the area in the mornings. There is a small grill if you like to cook out. This home is only a few miles from the beach and Great Neck and Little Neck. It's just a few miles in to town or to Crane Beach. We will definitely be back!

We were so glad we chose Ipswich and this property for our three-week vacation with our family!

  • 5 of 5

The "oldness" of this house and property were part of what appealed to us, so we didn't expect luxury, but there were enough modern conveniences (dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, etc.) that it was easy to be here. There were small window A/C's in most of the bedrooms, fans as needed, and it did cool off at night, so although there were a few days in the nineties, we were able to sleep comfortably. We chose Ipswich for it's fairly central New England location as we wanted to take day trips both north and south - up to Acadia and down as far as Plimouth Plantation - and it was ideal for this. But what was not expected was how charming Ipswich itself is and how much it had to offer. Crane Beach was a delight and probably our grandchildren's favorite part of the trip - way better than the historical ventures into Boston that we had planned! Rockport, Gloucester, Manchester and Salem were also only a half hour's drive away and we enjoyed visiting them, as well as exploring the old cemeteries and 59 "Period One" houses in Ipswich. There were wonderful restaurants in the area from Essex to Rowley and we felt we ate like kings. Jill was always available at a moment's notice, as she gave us her cell number, so when we needed anything - extra supplies, advice on handling a tick bite, etc. - she was right there with what we needed. We would love to return here and highly recommend it!!!

Wonderful Home

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week stay at this home 8/31/16 to 9/7/2016. The only problem we had was that the light in the dinning room over the kitchen table never worked and some of the plugs around the house didn't work and whoever stayed before us never cleaned the grills on the porch. We would have like to have swept the carpet floors before we left but could not find a sweeper so we did what we could with cleaning up after ourselves. The home has a good view of the marsh behind it and was only a couple blocks from my Aunt's house. It was also not to far from Crane Beach which we went out to 1 day before the tropical storm hit off shore.

Group Comfort!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 5 women: plein air artist friends, rented this house for a week of painting along the North Shore.

The location of this wonderful house was conveniently located to Ipswich, Rockport, Gloucester and Newberryport.

We found many well-maintained land Reservations, nearby and open to the public, which gave us easy access to the area Marshes and beaches, where we painted happily in the early mornings. With cameras in hand, we also enjoyed many a Marsh sunset.

This house proved to be very comfortable for a unrelated group of women who each wanted their own bedroom, and it suited our needs perfectly. Each evening a different member of the group prepared and served dinner it to the rest of us in the spacious dining room.

Jill is most kind and yes, generous in seeing that we enjoyed our stay. The house was spotless; the kitchen and appliances all that we could ask for. There was plenty of parking for the several cars we arrived in. This house near the Great Marsh was a painter’s and photographers paradise! We would love to go back there again another year.

The house is a few minutes walk to the ocean on both sides of the road (in the Great Marsh).. Beach and kayak access (public boat access too) is one mile further out-a nice trip across the bay to Plum Island sanctuary. Bring binoculars as in all seasons migratory birds- egrets, herons, osprey and more abound in the views from the house. The tidal marsh surrounding the house is described in the natural history book- 'The House in Ipswich Marsh' written by a neighboring author. Birding, walking, kayaking, cycling - fun things to do. The nearby town wharf was the first colonial settlement in town. Ipswich is known for having the largest number of 17th century homes in America! To relax in this type of wildness while being centrally located and accessible to Boston, Salem, Newburyport and Gloucester makes this house truly a vacation find. Very well cared for animals are allowed with discussion. Help is offered seeking local animal day care if needed, as animals should not be left in the house alone in the first 24 hours especially. There is a private art studio on the property.
