What better way to experience historic Newburyport than to stay in a colonial house (in a private suite) built in 1736 - that's 282 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. We are also a short train ride away from historic Salem, MA.
“I loved staying in this historic house within walking distance of a charming downtown and easy driving distance of Plum Island (where there's great birding and beautiful beaches). I would definitely find a weekend's worth of interesting things to do in the area and would be refreshed each night by staying at this place. I found the communication clear and easy.”
The Fox and the Grapes is located in an 18th-century, Georgian style house on a quaint, historic street originally home to shipbuilders and sea captains. Located on the second floor, this peaceful room offers a sumptuous four-poster, queen-size bed, air-conditioning, wifi, a desk, chair and comfortable reading chair. A private bathroom is outside your bedroom—across the hall.
“I had such a lovely visit at Skye's house. She is incredibly thoughtful, warm, and welcoming (as is her adorable dog, Whiskey!). The room is cute and cozy with a big comfy, warm bed and a little desk. There is a private bathroom and a parking spot. The house is in a super convenient location near town and the water. I had an amazing yoga class at Riverside Yoga, just a 5 minute walk away. I had a great time chatting with Skye about the neighborhood, books, and careers. Thank you, Skye!”
Walking distance to downtown, library, restaurants & train 30 minutes to Boston Close to beaches
“What a perfect spot for a weekend trip up on the north shore! We stayed here one night and loved how comfortable and well-located the house was. Ipswich is a delightful town, lots of restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Slept very well and enjoyed some tasty coffee in the morning that Mark was kind enough to brew for us.”
