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.

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!

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!

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.
