Accommodation in Newburyport, Massachusetts

| 0 Comments

Jessica Reaves has found an accessible place to stay that has a bit of character in Newburyport, Masschusetts in Sunny Rooms in Scenic Massachusetts Port

Nestled on a leafy side street in one of the most scenic seaports and about 38 miles northeast of Boston, the Essex Street Inn fits right in with Newburyport's history. Settled in the 1630s, Newburyport quickly became one of New England's most profitable and important maritime trading ports. The town suffered an economic downswing in the early part of the 20th Century, but, thanks to community activists, has once again become a picturesque and popular residential and vacation hotspot.

The Essex Inn was built in 1880 in "Eclectic Victorian" style, its pale yellow clapboard exterior offset by black shutters. The 27 guest rooms, all recently renovated, are furnished with antique reproductions and freshly painted in a sunny color palette. Some of the pricier rooms boast gas fireplaces, canopy or four-poster beds and a Jacuzzi tub...

You can easily walk to any location in town--including bustling State Street where shops are alternately touristy and tasteful. The Newburyport waterfront is just a few blocks away, and area beaches are easily reachable by car or bicycle.
