About Kathy & Bill Barrett
We purchased our first beach house on Plum Island during the Spring of 2006 and after significant renovations we proudly made our Plum Island Beach House our permanent home with our 3 children just steps from the beach, 95 steps exactly therefore naming our Beach House "95 Steps". Thinking we would never leave 95 Steps, in 2013 we began the search for another property (one that would include our aging mother). As we constructed the main house we lived in a tiny cottage on the property and fell in love with the simplicity of small cottage living. Our small cottage (The Pearl) of 650 square feet is where our Mom currently resides just steps from the Main House - "The Oyster".
Kathy & Bill Barrett purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Kathy & Bill Barrett chose Newburyport
We couldn't wait to find just the right property to build another small cottage of our dreams and to share with our family and friends who also want to experience the beauty of Plum Island. Beautiful water views and the most spectacular sunsets you will ever see. Just minutes away from the Parker River Wildlife Refuge. The Cottage features water views on 3 sides and include the Basin, the Merrimack River and the beautiful Joppa Flats.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Plover's Nest Cottage is tucked in a quiet neighborhood at the end of a cul-de-sac with the most unbelievable sunsets you will ever see. A small cottage with all the amenities one is accustomed to that will make your stay feel like home. With Stainless Steel appliances, wood floors and granite countertops, 1.5 baths, washer & dryer this is the perfect getaway for 2 people. It does sleep 3 as there is a twin pull out couch downstairs which is perfect for a young adult or small child. We are accepting reservation weekly or nightly with a 2 night minimum. We are a smoke free environment but pet friendly for your well behaved, well trained pets. A Pet fee will be added if your furry friend accompanies you. We wanted to take the worry out of your stay and hope that we have thought of everything you will need so won't have to. In addition, we also offer a concierge service for a small fee & will make sure everything you need (like milk, juice, eggs, butter & even wine, cheese & crackers) are all waiting for you upon your arrival.

Great beach house
Very well equipped vacation home with a very short walk to the beach
Beautiful home and location
The home is located on a quite street with a short walk to watch the sunset. We had rain for a couple days, plays cards and Backgammon. We felt right at home in this beautiful oasis away from home. The homeowners were available if needed and the check-in, location and communications with the owners was extremely easy. We are looking forward to going back
Lovely beach-y birthday
If/when I own a beach place, it'll be just like this: neat, clean, a place for everything and everything in its place. Lovely views of sunsets and sunrises, just down the street from Plum Island Grille, a fun restaurant and bar. Owners were responsive and checked in just enough to make sure all was fantastic, which it was!!! Can't wait to return
Beautiful place with little extras to make your stay special.
Perfect start to summer!
What an amazing house! My husband and I had such a relaxing stay. The upper deck is perfect for sunset cocktails. We brought our dog and we loved the food and water bowl for him as soon as we walked in. We can’t wait to go back!
