What you would want for a brief getaway, top notch accommodations, beautiful location. Staff was available but not intrusive. "Breakfast in a box" delivered to your door was welcome. Very relaxing few days outside of the crowds of Newburyport.

Blue is a 13 room, small hotel on the beach on Plum Island. Some of the rooms are located in cottages across the street. We were given a second floor oceanside room. PROS: Free parking in a lot a few steps down the block. Our room had a small fridge and microwave. There was a Keurig with a few K-Cups.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights during July. As mentioned by others, location is key to Blue. From our room it was about 3-4 steps across the deck and straight onto the beach. Wonderful. The room came with a good-sized bed, sofa and armchair and sliding doors that led directly to the deck. The bathroom (in reality simply a shower room)... More

Arriving at Blue, you immediately hear and smell the ocean but the sand dunes and adjacent houses block the view. That changes when you swing open your room’s door and see the Atlantic Ocean just beyond the glass slider. The clean, sandy beach starts where your room stops. The blue on white décor of the room complimented the outstanding view... More

We had never been to Plum Island, so we didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by the island and by Blue. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They gave us many wonderful suggestions and Shannon went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. We had a wonderful first stay, and we are looking forward... More

We stayed in one of the cabins. Very beach chic décor. Plenty of room for 4. Bed was extremely comfortable, plenty of room to spread out. immediate access to the beach and ocean. Picnic breakfast was just enough to break the nightly fast. Hope to stay again when renovations are complete and it re-opens.

Plum Island is one of my favorite places in the world, and now blue is one of the many reasons why. We stayed in a cottage in August 2013.

Blue is a one hour ride from Boston, and an easy ride to go out for an excellent breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Our family stayed at Blue in the Grand Salon, a two story white walled, thick planked wooden floored home with gigantic windows and porches overlooking the ocean. Our suite had a hot tub, a large gas grill, and... More
