Try to imagine your own fisherman's cottage transformed into a quaint modern waterfront home ... that's Riverside Retreat. A beautifully appointed home with 4 levels of outdoor waterfront living: swing on the back porch; dine on the stone patio; lounge on the large deck; take the gangplank down to the riverfront dock. Just imagine family fishing tournaments on this dock!

Riverside Retreat, nestled in a protected peninsula neighborhood in Beverly, provides the perfect get-away location. The home is just around the corner (a 15 minute walk) from a riverside playground & beach with great access for swimming, kayaking, and fishing. And ... Riverside Retreat is just a 3-minute walk to the Beverly train station, restaurants and nightlife. From the Beverly train station, guests have quick access to Salem (2mins), Gloucester (5mins), Boston (30mins), and Portsmouth NH (45mins). Riverside Retreat is <5 minute drive to Cummings Center and the highway.

Beverly, neighbor to historic Salem, provides convenient access to so many of the North Shore's sites and cities. Riverside Retreat guests can easily venture to the surrounding areas or take a tour of Beverly's sites like Independence Park where the Declaration of Independence was read to colonists, Lynch Park which hosts weekly outdoor concerts, and the North Shore Music Theater which hosts major musical productions all year long. Stroll along Cabot or Rantoul streets and check out some of the great restaurants like Soma's for an amazing selection of Mojitos.

At Riverside Retreat, you enter the main floor using the ramp that connects the street to the front door. The main floor provides open concept living & dining room with spectacular views of the Bass & Danvers Rivers, an island kitchen with adjoining playroom (with sleep sofa) and 1 of the full baths. Exit the main living area to the amazing waterfront backyard.

The upper level has 3 bedrooms and the 2nd full bath. This bathroom was designed by a custom tile artist. Splish-splash in a large soaking tub while being surrounded by a tropical sea. Look up! Is that the bottom of a boat?

- The rocks along the river are slippery; please avoid climbing or playing on the rocks.

Welcome to my lifelong home of Massachusetts. Massachusetts blends the historical with the modern and the natural with the cultural. It's an exceptional place with many unique experiences - just ask me. Boston's North Shore is a foodies paradise - with gourmet to picnic eateries, many craft beer taprooms, and artisanal cheeses. There's something for every palate. Boston's North Shore is equally visually stimulating - such a great variety of views - long expanses of sandy beaches, amazing marshes teaming with wildlife, and rocky shorelines where listening to waves crash soothes the soul. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. While I love my home in the North Shore, I love visiting other cultures. So far, I've visited almost 50 countries. There's so many more to see!
