Property Description

The Joppa House is perched upon stilts on a 10.5 acre lot bordering the Merrimack River. Our home abuts Mass Audubon on both sides and enjoys a natural habitat for birds. The lower and upper observation decks overlooking a salt panne offer great vantage points for viewing wildlife as well as outdoor retreats for relaxing on the river. This architecturally stunning home has panoramic views over marsh and river yet remains private from the easily accessed city of Newburyport and the beautiful beaches of Plum Island. Kayaks can be launched from the site at high tide.

Enjoy all that Newburyport has to offer as well as the beaches of Plum Island, the Sandy Point State Reservation and the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge during your stay at this enchanting property.

Our home, Joppa House, is located in the historic, seaport town of Newburyport, Massachusetts and is situated halfway between downtown and the beautiful beaches of Plum Island. A unique and architecturally stunning get-a-way for two, Joppa House, is adjacent to Massachusetts Audabon and the National Park Service headquarters for Plum Island.

From the beach shores of Plum Island to the Clipper City Rail Trail and Harbor Walk, there’s no shortage of things to do in Newburyport. The Clipper City Rail Trail is a 1.1 mile multi-use path that runs from the MBTA to the Merrimack River shoreline near downtown. You can run, walk or bike all while accessing your favorite spots and discovering new ones. It connects to ample side streets for shops and attractions.

Maudslay State Park and the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge are both attractions highly ranked by the National Park Service. The Maudslay State Park features 19th century gardens, undulating meadows and large pines. There are miles of trails for walking, biking and horseback riding. Families can also enjoy picnics among nature. Parker River boasts gentle terrain with dunes, shrubs and freshwater marshes. You can walk along boardwalks to the ocean or take bird watching excursions, as well as educational courses. These are just a few of the great outdoor Newburyport activities.

The Market Square Historic District is just one of the many Newbuyport treasures on the National Register of Historic Places. This district is comprised of federal style brick buildings. It’s also home to the US Custom House, which is a classical revival building. The Custom House is now the Custom House Maritime Museum, showcasing the maritime heritage of the Merrimack Valley. Plus, Newburyport is the Birthplace of the US Coast Guard. Things to do in Newburyport are full of rich history.

The Waterfront Park is another one of the popular things to do in Newburyport. Green space with benches allows you to relax and bask in the sun. This park is also host to many Newburyport events, such as Riverfront Music Festival and Newburyport’s Yankee Homecoming.

Joppa Flats is located on Water Street offering gorgeous views of the Merrimack River. You’ll find plenty of Newburyport water activities here, such as boating, and kayaking. If you enjoy a fun adventure, go for a Newburyport Whale Watch tour.

With the craft brew craze going on, Newburyport has gladly joined in. The Newburyport Brewing Company makes delicious craft beers that bring friends and family together. Their taproom is open for tastings and pints Thursday - Sunday and offers live music, art shows, brewery tours (Saturday @ 4 pm), and the Metzy's Taqueria Truck on Thursday nights. One of our own is a brewer at NBPT Brew Co. so you will always find the refrigerator at Joppa House well stocked. :)

Once you've explored all that Newburyport has to offer, Boston, Cape Ann, Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Kittery, Maine are all great places for a day trip.

We hope you have the opportunity to visit Joppa House soon. Rates are $325/night (4 night minimum) from mid-October through mid-May. Seasonal rates range from $400 to $425/night - all rates require a 4 night minimum stay.

Beautiful property with ever changing views that are out of this world ! Private, yet a walkers paradise, with town and many nearby parks and wildlife areas accessible on foot. Joppa House has everything you need ( and then some!) to enjoy a delightful, peaceful, restful, romantic vacation and a chance to experience some of the area's magic.

We had a wonderful time. The home was spotless and Patrica was the perfect host. We will be back.

The home was spotless, well equipped if you just want to never leave for your time there and Patrica was the perfect host. I was on line last night trying to book it for the first week of Oct. but it is already sold. Don't pass this home up if your going to Newburyport
