About Steve Collier
My name is Steve. I have lived here on plum island for 26 fantastic years. Plum island is an enchanting place with a very special feel to it. I came here in 1992 and never left! You won't want to leave either.
Steve Collier purchased this Cottage in 1998
Why Steve Collier chose Plum Island
This is one of the increasingly scarce old plum island cottages left. It has been updated with a new & modern interior. The house has a real beachy feel to it. The neighborhood as quiet and tranquil as can be. Very Relaxing.
What makes this Cottage unique
It has a unique wooded setting that is like no other here on Plum Island. This location is extremely quiet and tranquil as it located at the end of a dead end street against the Basin. Lots of interesting birds due to the amount of trees around the property. Quick access to some stunning beaches. Awesome Paddle Boarding or Kayaking property, just steps to the Tidal Basin, or venture back to the Great Marsh!

We had the most relaxing time at the cottage. It was truly beautiful with all the amenities we needed. So warm and inviting. Steve was really a wonderful host. If there was anything we needed all we had to do was ask. The water is just steps away from the house with terrific views. So much to see!
Thanks so much, Jim and Jackie
We plan on coming back!
Small, but beautiful
We lived for one week in this wonderful cozy cottage, and loved every day. Big enough for two, quiet near the water's edge, near the town - a wonderful place to get in touch with this part of the US. The only thing we missed was a little table for outside.
Its a nice and quiet place. Not far from beach and other facilities.
Steve has created a lovely little cottage off the "beaten path" but still close to everything :)
My husband and I chose Plum Island and the cottage as a first stop on a summer sabbatical as a place to rest and to be rejuvenated - couldn't have found a better place !! Steve is very accommodating and the cottage was perfect for us - PI beaches were breathtakingly beautiful and very uncrowded in June while we were there - we enjoyed lots of walking and fishing and beach time - gorgeous place!
Sweet alternative to a hotel
Steve was great, friendly, responsive and lives right next door.
This cottage, in a quiet residential lane, is steps to the Merrimack River and about a mile away from the ocean. Also a short drive to downtown Newburyport, which has lots of shops, restaurants and cafes.
The cottage is neat and clean with a nice little galley kitchen. Was able to heat some food we brought and store things in the large refrigerator. Big enough for 2 and with the pullout couch in living room fine for 4 people. A little cramped though.
A mirror in the bedroom would make a nice upgrade to the experience :)
Great little house
Perfect location to visit the beautiful Parker River preserve and equally beautiful town of Newburyport. The house is very comfortable and clean, has everything you need and the owner is accessible, friendly and helpful. If/when we return to this area we would definitely hope to stay here again.
This Cottage is located steps from the Plum Island Tidal Basin. The Tide fills and empties the basin giving you a 6 hour window twice a day to Kayak from right in front of the house. The beaches are within a short distance to the cottage including the National Wildlife Refuge with boardwalks and beaches
