Come stay in our charming 1845 riverside home in beautiful Newburyport
Whether you are seeking a peaceful retreat, a romantic getaway, or simply want to experience a natural wonder, you will find what you are looking for at our B&B.
In our 1845 home, we have 1 room with a shared bath and deluxe continental breakfast. The room has a queen bed with a shared bath and includes parking, Wi-Fi, cable TV, and air conditioning. Watch the sunrise over the river from your room! The room has hand woven textiles from Africa and Mexico. African art is displayed throughout the house. The alarm clock even has an IPod / IPhone dock. We are a 10 minute walk to the center of town and 5 minutes to restaurants and shops.
Less than an hour drive from Boston and Logan airport, we are centrally located - an easy drive north to both the New Hampshire and Maine coasts and Salem, Gloucester and Rockport to the south.
We have traveled and lived around the world and welcome you to our home.
Just a short stroll brings you to the historic downtown of Newburyport, where you will find a wonderful assortment of restaurants, charming shops, art galleries, and our outstanding Performing Arts Center. For nature lovers, we are 3 miles to the ocean and the nationally important Plum Island National Bird and Wildlife Refuge. We are on the Merrimac River and have a boat and kayak launch 100 yards from our front door.
Smoking only allowed in garden. House may not be suitable for children under 6 as the house is filled with art - contact us about this.
My husband, Chuck, and I are retired and love to travel. We have lived in Europe and Africa - West Africa where I was both a Peace Corps volunteer (Tunisia and Cameroun), and PC staff (Niger and Senegal). We spend the winter in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and run a B&B in the beautiful town of Newburyport Ma - north of Boston - the rest of the year. In San Miguel, Chuck paints and I take weaving classes. I love textiles!
Every year, after Mexico, we take a long trip on our way home. This year we are driving up the west coast to Vancouver Island. I have never been to the north west.

We love having a B&B and meeting people. And as we are so used to having guests in our home, we promise we will be perfect guests in yours!
