About Denise Mootafian
My husband and I purchased this wonderful cottage on Great Neck in Ipswich in 2015 and we have been residents of Ipswich for more than 22 years! In fact, you will be right around the corner from our neighborhood when you go to Marini Farm for fresh produce and baked goods. We are very involved in our community with my Windhill Real Estate business and my husband, Nishan, having been a town selectman for the past several years. We are always nearby should you need anything...

Why Denise Mootafian chose Great Neck
This home was previously owned by a local Ipswich family who enjoyed it for over 30 years with their friends and family. It was originally called "Windswept" because the former family thought that the breezes sounded and felt lovely. They also playfully named the stairway access to the water "Runway to the Ocean". Nishan and I enjoyed hearing their stories and learning of their father's journal entries about his time there. We are hoping you will add your experiences to the journal we have left for you and future vacationers!
What makes this Cottage unique
Nishan and I were immediately captivated by the amazing view/sunsets and the abundance of wildlife when we first visited this adorable cottage. We were thrilled with the idea that we might be able to drop our kayaks in right from our own property. We could immediately see ourselves calling this our retirement home, only we are no where near retirement! Nishan and I very much look forward to the days we can spend sipping cocktails on the deck, but for now we are happy to share our vision and dream with you!

Relaxing cottage site
Very beautiful location! Quiet and peaceful. The cottage could use some updates (narrow shower stall, old shower curtain), and the beach (Clark) you can use with rental pass is not a 5 star beach.
Even so, you can truly relax here and enjoy New England at its salt marshy best!
Perfect North Shore Retreat
Moot Point is even more beautiful in person than in the photos, if that's possible! You may never want to leave the house with its picturesque views and cooling sea breezes, but if you do there is plenty to see in the area. We enjoyed taking walks, kayaking, visiting farm stands, and learning about local history. We thought the location was perfect - you feel secluded, but it's an easy drive into Ipswich to pick up coffee or have dinner. The house was open and comfortable, and the rooms were thoughtfully decorated without being cluttered. Cooking was easy in the fully-stocked kitchen. We highly recommend a stay here and would love to return ourselves!
Tranquility on the Marsh
This is the most peaceful place we have visited. If you are a bird watcher you will love the migration each night of the many water birds flying overhead to roost. The cottage is clean, stocked with ample cooking items and little touches that make it feel cozy. Denise was very attentive and answered all of our questions quickly. We did not take advantage of the kayaks mostly because of the weather and wind. We visited during an exceptionally hot, humid week and even without AC the cottage was very comfortable with the paddle fans and breezes from the waterway. Lots to do in the area and so nice that a beach parking pass is included for the nearby Clark Beach. We loved this home and hope to return again soon. Absolutely meditative.
Beautiful, peaceful, so many birds!
We highly recommend staying at the Moot Point. The cottage is spotless and there was a lovely gift of dog biscuits and wine awaiting us when we arrived which made us feel so welcome. This was a great home base for exploring the north shore, it was an easy (and beautiful) drive into town as well. We were also tempted just to sit on the deck and read all day! Crane beach is heaven. Thank you!
Wonderful weekend getaway
beautiful views and charming cottage made for a wonderful getaway
A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN ON THE WATER
This cottage that overlooks the water was a relaxing and endearing place to enjoy the beauty of this area. The kayaks were an added bonus as well as the large deck to sunbathe, read and socialize with family and friends.
The owner is responsive and willing to offer and assist in anyway possible. Iswich is a cute town with great restaurants with fried clams and homemade ice cream on the top of my list.
Ipswich is a community rich in history with more 1st period homes than any other location in the U.S. Ideally located between Boston and the mountains of NH with only a short distance to shopping outlets in ME. Take the train south to Boston or head north to experience Newburyport. Go Antiquing in Essex, Whale watching in Gloucester or enjoy local seafood anywhere in between! There are plenty of outdoor activities with your choice of beaches, trails, nature reserves, and boating excursions. My husband and I are happy to make suggestions tailored to your interests!
