If you seek and/or require privacy, peace, quiet, stillness and solitude, the Sanctuary's Private B&B Retreat awaits you. This self-catering B&B retreat offers all the charm of a traditional B&B experience and beyond. It's conveniently located yet removed from the hustle and bustle of city life. It is suitable for 1-4 guests; adults only

Most accessibly located off Route 95, just a couple of miles from downtown Newburyport and the beautiful beaches of Plum Island, the Parker River Wildlife Sanctuary, and all the fun and ambience, diversity and charm of downtown Newburyport, with short drives to Maine and New Hampshire.

The Sanctuary is nestled in the stillness of nature and is legendary for miracles occurring … for its daytime visitors and overnight guests in all seasons the Sanctuary’s calming scenery offers beauty, stillness and peace for all.

Meander down the Sanctuary’s cobblestone path that leads to a private castle door entrance into an etched glass European tiled floored garden sky lit conservatory living room. This calming room is most comfortably furnished with a velvet-soft sofa and loveseat, wood tables, overhead lighting and ceiling fan and seasonal plants that are instilled within the stillness of nature. Even though the Sanctuary’s private B&B retreat is part of the main residence, it feels like a cottage that’s tucked into the landscape.

This all-season room overlooks the natural habitat where cardinals, finches, bluebirds, a resident red-tail hawk, and an occasional owl will make their presence known. Chipmunks play in season and the resident groundhog all feel at home in the Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary's private B&B retreat is like one's own small residence within the Sanctuary. In addition to the conservatory, there are two bedrooms, office/meeting room, full bath, Provence-style kitchen with a separate entrance that is stored with provisions for your comfort and convenience.

The ‘Snow White’ bedroom has a custom-designed and built extra large, king size brass bed, a wall-to-wall white stone fireplace, large white wall-to-wall built-in desk/dresser with many drawers, European tiled floor, window seat, three windows that look over the back gardens, private patio and bucolic scenery.

Adjacent to the bedroom is a meeting room with a table and chairs, armoire, sidebar/dresser and accent furnishings.

The quaint, pristine, predominantly white and aqua bathroom has a shower and European tiled floor, window with white shutters, and a basket of complimentary fine toiletries.

Adjacent is a cheerful pastel Provence-style galley kitchen with a private entrance and scenic views. Although there is no cooking or meals served, we provide a small refrigerator, toaster oven, coffee maker, and cabinets with dishware, flatware and other essentials.

The 'Amethyst Room' is an intimately decorated healing bedroom with a queen-sized bed, comfortable chair, built-in dresser, violet-hued stained glass window panel, lavender curtains, pastel tile floor, and bathed in a spectrum of lavender and lilac hues. The Amethyst Room was formally used as a healing room and still contains healing energy and love.
