'FANTASTIC RARE HISTORIC HOME'
'My sister visited from Europe and our two families stayed at this truly incredible home for a June vacation. All of us were in awe when we arrived and started exploring. The 1684 house seemed compact from the outside, but as we went through the hallways and stairs and discovered room after room after room, we found that we had to go through the house again to take it all in. The house has been meticulously maintained and restored, with antiques and period furnishings throughout. Each room is an absolute pleasure to take in, not only for the incredible 17th century woodwork, but also for the furnishings, which all have beautiful natural textures, warm neutral hues, and deep rich antique bronzes. We made our way out the back door and were in awe anew when we saw the yard and garden. The house sits atop a small river valley, and you are surrounded by lush greenery and the sound of the rushing water below. The yard is terraced, and the top terrace has a covered patio. The brick patio has dining seating as well as Adirondack chairs. Down some stone stairs is the next level, with wood chairs and a firepit. Down the next set of stairs is a gated fence (nice safety feature). Behind that gate was a surprise circular deck (like a large 'O') which allowed you to walk along in the dappled light under the trees to the old well and stream (now a lily pond) and down to the mill stream with the Plymouth Grist Mill on the opposite bank. The beautiful towering foliage, colorful flowers, birdsong, and rushing water make the backyard a wonderfully tranquil and restful sanctuary. This is not just a place to stay. It's a place to experience. You get to enjoy a 17th century home with hidden modern luxuries. The Sub zero refrigerators, television, and wifi router are hidden behind cabinets. The beautiful quilt on the bed has a fluffy down comforter underneath. The kitchen is better equipped than any home we've rented through VRBO throughout the years. Other highlights: - Proximity to everything we cared about: lovely beaches, historical sites (there is a gorgeous tree-lined path along the river that you can take from the grist mill to Plymouth Rock), an 18 minute drive to Cape Cod, and an hour drive to Boston. - Variety of bedrooms and bed sizes - Sitting areas on both the 1st floor and 2nd floor - A layout that thrilled the kids - 'I found a hidden staircase!' - A thoroughly clean house, gleaming tile showers - A wonderful property contact We absolutely loved it!'……Christa M.
MAIN LEVEL: -Sitting/Keeping Room, working fireplace -Tudor Bedroom (Queen) -Napping Room (single bed ) -Bathroom w ancient tree beams, king posts -Additional full (shower) bathroom, -Eat in kitchen w 2 antique-paneled Sub Zero refrigerators -Covered stone and brick patio, gardens and streams and massive stone walls to boardwalk and waterfall.
LUXURY in a 330 year old house? Step back in time (with with Sub Zero refrigerators and exquisite bathrooms.) Here is a home of history, character, and style from our country's earliest beginnings, a home belonging to our first settlers, with hand hewn beams, hand-cut planks, 330+ year old joists made of trunks. Its king posts cut were from forests growing in the middle ages. (In America, that might be called 'pre-historic.' Experience the past, but with exquisite comfort in this charming house built in 1684 as a mill stream cottage and counting house. Authentic, lovingly-preserved rooms, tasteful New England decor where you can play pilgrim but grab a drink from the Sub Zero while lounging beside the waterfall. And where else can you walk from your front door to a whale watch boat, museums, boutiques, restaurants, antique stores, or explore the Grist Mill to grind some corn for your breakfast muffins..OR spend the day at the ocean beach (we provide beach privileges.) Downtown Plymouth is a rich destination for an exciting selection of food..fresh seafood, gourmet italian, lobster in the rough, homespun cafes, taverns, coffee shops, and sports bars. If you've ever toured a 'First Period' house-museum and thought, 'It would be incredible to be able to stay here,' (but can't) we now offer this antique mill-house residence, one of the first dwellings in America. Part of the house was the counting house for measuring out corn to be ground in the grist mill that bestrides Town Brook. Peek into the storage under the stairs to see hundreds of wallpaper layers (mostly from 1800 and beyond.) Lovers of early framing will respond to the king posts, summer beams, floor boards 24' wide, cut from the biggest King's Grant trees, 4 colonial fireplaces. And especially restorative is the view overlooking the mill, gardens, springs and rushing stream and waterfall.
In this incredible Antique Mill-Stream Cottage, you'll find comfortable beds, fireside wing chairs, leather topped writing desk, hand loomed coverlets, smooth sheets, down blankets and fluffy towels. The house retains a picturesque antique look with electrified oil lamps, handmade carpets, wavy window glass. Don't worry, the kitchen offers you quality appliances and TWO Sub Zero refrigerators, thoughtfully hidden behind (where is the refrigerator?) panels. Bathrooms and powder room are fresh and stylish, newly renovated but full of charm (hard to fathom what a 1684 bathroom would be like.) Our favorite is the powder room under the stairs where you'll be surrounded by the coolest of bathroom amenities, but underneath the 330 year old beams-and-posts part of the house and tree-trunk beams overhead. The Keeping Room has an impressive paneled fireplace and the master bedroom features majestic hand-planed raised panels from the 1720s.
Just outside your kitchen doors, step out to a brick barbecue patio that sits on the main massive stone wall, with awning overhead. Then down stone steps to the stone-walled terrace play yard, along the private winding boardwalk path to the soothing rush and roar of the Mill Stream waterfall (in May, alewife run the stream to the ponds above). Sitting by the waterfall, you will want to jot some notes in your diary, enjoy back-in-time book like 'Mayflower' or 'Moby Dick' while sipping your tea or heartier beverage and watching songbirds dart overhead beside the rushing brook below your feet. Our standards for your comfort are the highest, and we provide you with quality bedding, linens, towels, soaps and necessaries, a well stocked kitchen with hand-thrown pottery dishes, ample flatware and quality glassware, kitchen linens, quality appliances, abundant spices, condiments and baking needs, everything you will need for an unforgettable stay, in America's past, for you TODAY.

Next door, Leo and Nancy give top-rated historic tours (in costume!) A few steps away, on the other side of Town Brook is the Jenney Grist Mill with is huge water wheel, where Plimoth Plantation staffs the mill and explains bits of history. There's a pub, shops and paths through the historic park to 'Brewster Gardens.' You are in the very heart of Historic Plymouth, with its incredible array of award-winning restaurants, boutiques, antique malls, all night coffee shops, historic sites Plymouth Rock, the MayFlower Ship, waterfront with shops and restaurants, whale watch cruises, deep sea fishing jaunts and harbor cruises.
Rent for a minimum of three nights off season (like a hotel) or enjoy a more leisurely stay, where you can avail yourself of the local ocean beaches and many freshwater swimming ponds, view the many cranberry bogs, take day trips to historic Sandwich, Provincetown, Woods Hole, take the ferry from Falmouth to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket, or head west to Newport, Rhode Island mansions of America's gilded age

Additional information about rental rates
Cleaning fee $125-285$125
Rates are based on factors such as size of your group, length of you stay, how the house will be used (event, or just a vacation.) A regular stay will cost less than a 'gathering' of course. A couple will pay less than a larger family. And the longer you stay, the better rate we can give you. Laundry takes forever, so the highest rates will be for the larger groups with the shortest stay.
50% (personal check) is due within 5 days of reservation. Balance is due 3 weeks before you arrive. Visa or MC serves as placeholder damage deposit. Rate slightly higher if using credit card.
