About Jill Porter

I am a mother of two grown daughters. We have resided in Newburyport since 1991. I work in a nearby school system and love Newburyport. As an avid cyclist, I enjoy riding during the warmer climate months at the Parker River Wildlife Refuge on Plum Island. Complimentary amenities I will leave for visitors includes a year-round duck pass which provides you and your travel companions access to the wildlife refuge and free beach parking every day of your stay.

Jill Porter purchased this bungalow in 2002

Why Jill Porter chose Newburyport

This craftsman style home was built in 1925 and has been lovingly restored to provide comfort, while maintaining many original features. The house is a large "print" bungalow with an open floor concept for enjoying each others' company. There are 2 FULL baths, Central Air, 2 gas fireplaces, a well-stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and furniture throughout. Enjoy our home with your family and friends as you explore Newburyport and all it has to offer!

What makes this bungalow unique

Enjoy the local shopping options, close proximity to Boston, easy drive to the beach and diverse dining options in town. Spend time walking along the boardwalk in downtown Newburyport, and along the connecting Rail Trail which is great for walking, running, cycling and nature walks with friends, families and children.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stacy and her family have rented from me for the past two years. It has been my pleasure to host her family for both of their stays! I would love the opportunity to host them again next summer!

Would Rent Here Again in a Heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house in a great neighborhood. 3 couples stayed here, comfortably. We were able to cook a meal for the 6 of us plus 5 other guests. It was a sweltering weekend but the AC kept us comfortable. Everything in the house worked as it should. We had all of the comforts of home.

Even better in the winter!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful house this past summer and loved it. But it was even better last week when it was cold outside. The soaking tub in the bathroom was amazing and the two gas fireplaces made it very cozy. The beds are super comfortable with cozy soft blankets. Grocery shopping is 3 minutes away, as is town. It's a great location and a really comfortable house. The big flat screen TV offers lots of options, but I have to admit that we struggled to figure everything out. A cheat sheet would be helpful.

We just had a girl's weekend at Jill's wonderful home. We arrived at night and she had lights on, heat on and info available on how things worked. This house is clean as a whistle and the beds are soooooo comfortable. It is nicely decorated with bed linens and towels that are clean and comfy. We loved spending time on the front porch or in front of the fireplace in the living room. The homes are close together but the neighborhood is quiet and neighbors are friendly. Off street parking in the driveway is a plus. The drive to downtown Newburyport is short and easy. We will definitely go back. Thanks Jill!
