What our guests have said

“I can’t say enough wonderful things about this home! It was so beautiful - both the house and the surroundings! The home is even better than the photos! Haven was an incredibly accommodating, responsive, helpful and kind host. She truly went above and beyond to make our weekend stay in Newburyport special! Highly recommend!”

“Sunset Cottage is extremely beautiful. The view from nearly every room is spectacular, the outdoor deck is incredible, the ambience of the "cottage" is perfect. Colorful, peaceful, serene, natural. Thank you, Haven, for sharing your "heavenly" space with us and all others to enjoy.”
 - Steve, May 2023
“Had an absolutely amazing wonderful time at the Sunset Cottage! The house and decor was so charming and beautiful. The cottage was directly on the water, with a private beach during low tide. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful, but yet great location and quick drive to downtown. House was extremely clean, and the beds were very comfortable. We were sad to leave and cannot wait to rebook!”
