What better way to experience historic Newburyport than to stay in a colonial house built in 1736 - that's 281 years old! This property is also within walking distance to the downtown shops, musuems & to several excellent restaurants. The beach, fishing and boating are only 2-3 miles away. Come visit and learn about this historical and scenic seaport.

The space

The bedroom is very quaint & cozy with lovely wide-pine floors and a fireplace that does not work but looks nice. The bedroom door and closet doors are old latch doors, as old as the house! The bathroom is old too! It has a cottage feel to it with a bead board and wainscoting. It also has a deep tub with a shower, so you will need to step in and out of the tub when showering. With the tub so deep, guests can also take a relaxing bath too! The room also comes with a small refrigerator and has an air condition for those that need it for during summer months. The unit is also on the 2nd floor so you will need to climb a set of stairs, approximately 20 steps.

Guests also have private access to a formal living room on the 1st floor. The room is has a lot of period features - it has a fireplace (non working), wide pine floors and a built in shelves and minister's cabinet.

Guest access

Guests are allowed to use the living room on the 1st floor. We are renovating the other rooms so all other rooms are closed to guests.

Interaction with guests

Host is available on site for questions. Emails and texted messages are also welcomed.

Other things to note

Dog and cat live in the house when there are no guests, so anyone with pet allergies should probably not select this property. The dog & cat will not be on site when there are guests.

There is off-street parking.

Comfortable. Close to everything in town. Lots of privacy. We wish we could have stayed longer. Would definitely stay there again!

My wife and I stayed one night in this historic house and everything was great. It was extremely clean and we had a comfortable night sleep. Roadside parking was not a problem.

This was a charming old house, nicely decorated. The bedroom and bathroom were spacious and had everything we needed, plus there was plenty of storage space. We could also use either of the 2 downstairs lounges. Restaurants and bars were an easy 10 mins walk away. We had a fabulous stay, a shame it was only 1 night.

A wonderful place embracing the history of this coastal town. We enjoyed staying in the clean bedroom and relaxing in the living room. A short walk takes you to a vibrant town with excellent dining and shopping opportunities.

Great location - walkable to downtown. Cynthia and her husband were accommodating with my early check in request. They set up a snack box on the room, which after a long day of travel made relaxing that much easier!

Cynthia and her husband warmly greeted me when I got there, and let me bring my bicycle into the entryway for safekeeping. The room is very cozy, and I had plenty of space to use. The location is excellent for doing anything in downtown Newburyport.
