About

Our lovely 1845 townhouse is the only B&B in town that overlooks the river. We are located a short walk from the historic downtown, filled with restaurants, galleries and entertainment and 3 miles from the ocean and a national bird sanctuary. The two guest rooms with a shared bath are decorated with handmade African and European art. Both have queen beds, cable TV and air conditioners. A generous breakfast is served. Parking is behind the house. A kayak and boat launch is 300 yards away.

Weekend stay

4.6 on May 23, 2014

The home was close to Plum Island and easy walking distance to downtown Newburyport. Chuck and Anne were very pleasant and wonderful host. Our only suggestion for improvement would be to have two chairs in the room instead of one. We will definitely stay at 167 Water street in the future on our visits to Plum Island and would recommend it for anyone staying in the Newburyport area.


Sweet, Lovely, Comfortable, Friendly

4.0 on November 26, 2013

167 is a 5-10 minute walk from the downtown, and closer to a great birdwatching spot. Chuck and Anne are great hosts, interesting and fun to talk with. These review stars are sort of odd. If I expected a place to be really terrific and it is, is that "met expectations", exceeded expectations", or "outstanding"? This place is great!


Lovely

The house/room are very comfortable. The best though, I think, was the breakfast! There were lots of lovely options! And it is clear that Anne and Chuck have enjoyed their travels, the decor reflects that. It was a lovely stay!

Thoughtful hosts, comfortable stay

4.2 on August 26, 2013

Our hosts were friendly and conversational but left us comfortable on our own. They also went above and beyond to provide vegan and gluten-free breakfast items. We loved our time there and will hope to return on our next visit.


Nice room, nice people
