Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Plum Island, USA, Your Home Away From Home

Plum Island is a barrier island situated just off the Massachusetts coast, and a short drive away from Newburyport. It has been a popular tourist destination since the 19th century, and although there are some hotels on the island, by far the best choice of accommodation is to stay in a holiday rental cottage in Plum Island. This gives the freedom and comfort of a home away from home, being fully furnished and decorated in an individual manner. The well equipped kitchen means that it is not necessary to eat out every night, and it is the perfect base from which to either explore the surrounding area, or simply relax and take it easy.
