Good seven days
Accommodations were excellent as was the location. If only the weather had cooperated. The sun shone two out of the seven days. During the remaining days, there was rain, high wind and impossible surf. However, we relaxed in the comfort provided by Yankee Belle and all in all enjoyed our stay. One problem; the clothes dryer needs work.
Nice property, easy access to the beach. Wish it wasn't for sale would love to come back next year.
Everything you needed was provided in the house. Everyday was a beach day was sad we had to go.
Great beach house!
Thanks Kerry, my family had a great time. Hope you will consider us next year. The house was very clean and airy, you can't beat the view.
Best summer week
The Yankee Belle is a treasure. The house is perfect. It has an open and airy concept that is so cozy and inviting. It is clean and equipped with everything you need. The washer and dryer are an added plus. We enjoyed our coffee on the back deck each morning watching the sun rise. Over the dune is a lovely beach that is so clean and not over crowded. We enjoyed the sun and the ocean each day and our only concern was what bathing suit to wear. It was quiet and peaceful just what we needed. Newburyport is just over the bridge with its cool shops and wonderful restaurants, but honestly once you settle in the Yankee Belle you don't want to leave. We were so sad when our week ended. We look forward to next summer enjoying the Yankee Belle. Thank-you Kerry for sharing your little piece of paradise.
An Unforgettable Winter/Spring
My husband and I quite honestly don't know where to begin. The Yankee Belle is a place that will never be forgotten, and will absolutely be revisited. The house itself is perfectly situated on the dunes of Plum Island. The setup of the home itself is perfect for entertaining guests, with a wonderful separate area for visitors, including a separate bath. The ocean views and sounds made for a perfect relaxing retreat. A place to forget about all the cares in the world. Kerry was very accommodating as well. She was completely delightful to correspond with. She was available when anything was needed, but we felt a great deal of privacy as well. We look forward so much to our return to the Yankee Belle.
August 2011/Best summer vacation ever!
We have 2 weeks left here. Wonderful place. We have shared it with children, grandchildren and friends. Great location. Very comfortable. Just have to talk my husband into next August.
We even had a chance to meet the owners. Very nice people and we love their little piece of heaven.

Thank You JoAnn and Brad! I believe the people spending time at Belle make the experience. It makes me happy to be able to provide my much loved beach house as a setting for people to take in such a beautiful piece of nature and to use this to nurture each other. Kerry Murphy
Plum Island is a barrier island in the Atlantic Ocean off Newburyport, Mass, at the mouth of the Merrimac River, near the Massachusetts-New Hampshire border. The northern tip of the island is populated, and the southern portion -over 7 miles of pristine beach and dunes- is home to the Parker River Nature Reserve.
