Perched at the water's edge on Conomo Point, this gracious vacation rental home is lovingly maintained and decorated to evoke the feelings of summer: beach, sea, sand, and blue skies. Once the home of famed Boston restauranteur Jacob Wirth, the home has historic significance and charm.

Sit on the wraparound porch to enjoy the 180 degree water views or take a short walk down the lane and utilize the waterfront (known as "The End" by locals), where you can easily take a swim or launch a kayak. (For the full river experience, ask us about renting a Kayak or Stand-Up Paddleboard through Atlantic Vacation Homes).

If peace, quiet, and picturesque surroundings are what you seek, this is the vacation getaway for you. Surrounded by the green grasses of the salt marsh, the Essex River Basin, and the Essex and Ipswich Bays beyond, you will be transported to a true summer paradise.

Have been renting through Atlantic Vacation Homes for many years now and their properties are always as described. Walking the beautiful beaches, visiting the incredible historic sites, nature trails - the beauty is never ending. (the yummy fish and chips at the local restaurants are addicting!)

Beautiful Historic Home on the Water

The home is gorgeous and we loved the layout and all the views. There are many great spots for relaxing and reading and just enjoying the view.

We were there in July and the water was out more than it was in, which was a surprising disappointment, but we just spent our time exploring the area and hanging out around the house instead of in the water.

Some of the amenities weren't there as described (Keurig) or didn't work properly (Sonos and TV and an exterior door that wouldn't open).

We called the help number and were told someone would contact me soon to rectify things, since the owner lived nearby. The follow up on that took a long time and through force, we were able to get the door to open so we could access the screened in porch, but then we couldn't shut or lock it, for fear we wouldn't be able to open it again..

We got a Keurig dropped off, but the techy things never did work.

All in all, we all loved our week-long stay and would love to go back and recommend it to family.

The pocket of houses where all the homes are (the neighborhood) was really fun and had a sense of camaraderie.

Originally from Massachusetts I wanted a flexible property where I could house my family of older children, catch up with friends and family. It was important the house would suit my Dad, in his eighties, who isn't as mobile as he used to be. The house and location was a big hit with everyone.

Beautiful views and a comfy home with plenty of space. There are lots of nice touches, like a well-equipped kitchen, satellite TV, and good Wifi for working vacations. The home is unique, and has the feeling of having been well-loved. I would definitely return.
