Plum Island is a VERY special place -- a wonderful place to relax and get away from the rest of the world. It has been written up in Forbes magazine & the New York Times. It is an 11-mile long barrier reef island (2 miles residential, 9 miles wildlife refuge especially well-known to bird-watchers), surrounded by lovely beaches, rivers, a tidal basin and the Atlantic Ocean. Outstanding place to bike ride, walk, hike, fish, sunbathe, swim and do any kind of boating. Only 3 miles from well-known quaint Newburyport with lots of great restaurants, antique shops, visual and performing arts, and weekend activities.
The house is between The Basin (literally just a few steps away) and the Atlantic Ocean (2 short blocks). You can kayak in The Basin or enjoy the power of the waves on the sandy Atlantic Ocean beach. The Parker River National Wildlife Refuge is a short bicycle ride away.
