...................................................................

If you are looking for an extraordinary 'find' for your vacation destination, you have found it. Timberframe Cottage is a delight, with its panoramic ocean views and timber frame design, vaulted 14-foot barnwood planked ceilings, heavy trusses, white wood walls, bright interesting rooms, and gracious amenities. It will exceed your expectations. Cloistered in its verdant setting with incomparable rustic-chic decor, BayShore Cottage might easily be the most handsome cottage available.

A convenient 10 miles north of Cape Cod in Manomet, 4 mi south of historic downtown Plymouth, this beautiful cottage is an ideal base for oceanfront relaxation, easy access to sightseeing, whale-watching, deep sea fishing, antiquing, boutiquing, golf, touring historic homes (some of which date to the 1600s, like VRBO 343120, which is actually available to rent for vacation!) beach combing, and swimming.


Website Being Updated Daily, Check Back: Vacationers searching the Web might overlook BayShore Cottage because of its location just north of Cape Cod. Those 'in the know' already realize that Cape Cod traffic has become horrendous at times -- an excellent reason to stay just a few miles away in the verdant coastal area with the same features but much lovelier terrain.

Entering through the pleasant breezeway, you'll see the breathtaking view sweeping from Plymouth Harbor to your left, to the Gurnet Lighthouse across the water, all the way to Provincetown as you turn east. Enjoy the spectacles of vivid sunsets over the water and at night, the twinkling lights of Plymouth, and the streak of light from the lighthouse across Plymouth Bay.

The breezeway has an overhead lighted cupola, which sheds a gentle light on your easygoing conversation or grilling while you watch the incredible sunsets over the water.

Stepping inside the open-plan cottage, you'll enter the Great Room with its 14-foot stone fireplace, timber trusses, and barnwood-planked ceiling. Attractively decorated with white slip-covered furniture, the Great Room has wide pine floors with forged nails, antique cupboards with beveled-mirror doors (reflecting the ocean view.) The kitchen runs the length of the great room and has a 14-foot long mahogany topped island with two undermount sinks/Grohe faucets, dishwasher, and a convection oven allowing the cook (or master of canapes) to be a part of the family gathering while enjoying the wraparound view. The refrigerator has an icemaker with tasty ice because our water is so good here.
The fireplace is flanked with massive antique Ottoman doors, brought back from Cyprus, which divide the Great Room from the master bedroom. This area has a vaulted ceiling, raised sleeping alcove that juts out toward the ocean, has a queen-size four-poster British West Indies bed.

Here, posts and beams create a jewel box with ocean views all around. The high windows let you peer at starlight high above the Atlantic. The bedroom's French doors open onto the wraparound mahogany deck that connects around the lodge to the Great Room and kitchen.
This handsomely renovated cottage has two full baths - one upstairs with a mahogany countertop, vessel sink, Grohe faucet, marble shower with pebble floor, and skylights above the shower and toilet. The other bathroom has a 4 foot shower, new vanity, stone walls, and separate toilet alcove around the corner for privacy by the roomy walk in closet.

Three sides of the cottage have walls of French doors, which open to the roomy deck. The open floor plan can accommodate six in beds plus two+ little people in the bunk room with three distinctly separate sleeping areas.
The lower level suite of rooms includes a den/sleeping area, laundry, bathroom, and an additional bunk room behind a sliding barn door. For two couples, this is a 2 bedroom+1 bunk room house. For a family which can sleep in a more open plan setup, there is an extra twin in each couple's area, so the house sleeps 6 plus 2 in bunk beds.

We provide absolutely everything you can imagine for your comfort and convenience at the house: Ample ice linens,towels, beach towels, laundry supplies, a well-stocked kitchen with spices, oil, condiments, and baking needs, Ice maker, Miele convection oven, induction cooktops (so you can move them and cook facing the ocean) quality pots and pans, nice dishes, quality wine glasses and glassware, silverware, small appliances like Cuisinart, mixer, toaster, paper goods like coffee filters, paper towels, bathroom tissue, napkins, excellent air-conditioning, two gas fireplaces, quality Weber gas grill with propane, firewood for the fire pit, easy access to Plymouth Long Beach just 1 mile away, or parking for one car at our Hhouse by the Sea where we have a magnificent private Hawaii-like beach.

The neighborhood is very interesting it used to be the elaborate Stone Estate, a magnificent estate with mansion, guesthouse, stables, gardener's cottage, caretaker's cottage, poolhouse w saltwater pool, polo fields with stone ramparts, t house modeled after the tea house at Versailles.
I will send you an aerial photograph of the estate from the 1930s which shows the extensive grounds, buildings and hinterlands of forested oceanfront acreage (where our house now sits.)

There is a chic new grocery store called the market at Pine Hills, ...excellent cheese shop, top-quality meats, great seafood, wonderful atmosphere and the wine shop next door with excellent selection. Downtown Plymouth has lots of good restaurants the Mayflower ship, Plymouth Rock, Plimoth plantation (Which is like a trip in a time machine back to the 1600s.) Farther south there is the Cape Cod Canal bikeway, Over the bridge is the quaint town of sandwich with seafood shops grocery stores historic homes, Antiques, restaurants...

Then again, you may never want to leave oceanfront Timberframe cottage, because it is so beautiful there...

To reserve, just email me with YES and I will send our friendly one page PDF rental agreement.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2002

About: To me, creating the perfect waterfront getaway home is an art form. My lifelong career had been in designing publications, and later creating magazine illustrations (google 'robin jareaux') and painting expressionistic works on canvas. When I first decided to rent my weekend home so I could renovate an incredible but dilapidated cottage (which became, at great expense, 'Timberframe Cottage') I did not know this would become my work and my passion. Working in 2d was fun and rewarding, but my new ART is creating vacation homes that themselves are 'works of art.' My goal with my homes is to create a setting that exceeds your expectations, and in turn, your patronage lets me continue my art form a few more years. Please read the guest comments to see the generous and enthusiastic compliments we've received. Finding just the right furnishings, using classic Nantucket decor, using materials such as massive beams, barnwood ceilings, wide pine floors, RL sheets, antique cabinets, and creating gardens overflowing with roses and peonies, clematis, daylilies, gigantic buried stepping stones, blueberries, raspberries, foxgloves (can you tell it is June as I write this?) expanses of mahogany countertop, fine appliances, stone fireplaces, stained glass, with views that will take your breath away. Please look at 'all my rental listings' to see my portfolio: art in the form of unique and exceptional vacation getaways. It is a labor of love... for you.

Why Manomet:
Incredible wraparound ocean views, a light house across the water, fireworks over the sea, utmost privacy, this is EDEN.
