(we just got an email with these comments: 'The location is perfect. It’s close enough to walk to town, but far enough from the noise. The place was beautiful! It was almost too nice.'
The Residence: Cushman Place Residence is a beautiful attached Colonial Revival Townhome. Once part of a distinguished 6000 square foot manse which had a boxwood maze garden and servants galore, this private in-town 2-4 bedroom townhouse-style apartment has its own entrance and easy parking. Cushman Place living room was the formal dining room of the original manse, with its fine fireplace, crown mouldings and wainscott. Wood floors, inspiring light, delightful details, not the least of which is a state of the art kitchen with SubZero refrigerator and Miele cooktop and Miele dishwasher, Bosch convection oven, honed granite countertops, and sleek euro range hood ... a nice break from your typical home-away stay. Here you will be enjoying amenities which in the past were luxuries, and which we today consider 'necessities' in the privacy and comfort of home. Your own front door, a short walk to the waterfront, Plymouth Rock, whale watching, boutiques.
The rooms: Discover the Pompeii powder room under the stairs leading to second floor, where two peaceful bedrooms and a lovely renovated bathroom, let couples, a family, a bridal party, (or space loving singles) sleep comfortably, then foray ambitiously into the exciting world of historic Plymouth, Cape Cod and the Islands. One flight below, you can toss a load of vacation laundry into the modern LG Tronn Steamfresh HE laundry, and have visions of a by-gone day, where servants scampered about taking care of such mundane tasks such as undies and lunch. Consider reserving Cushman Place as an alternative to a cramped hotel stay, whether for a night or two to see the historic sites, or if flying early into Boston or Providence for your Cape Cod vacation rental.
As our waterfront vacation properties (and others) are on strict Saturday-to-Saturday, or Sunday-to-Sunday schedules, we wanted to be able to offer our incoming guests a refuge and opportunity to explore the area if their travel plans brought them to Cape Cod earlier than the check-in day. Cushman Place provides our incoming guests a place to rest, refresh, explore, and catch up with email.
Having a wedding? Brides will find this a lovely and convenient place for preparing for that special event.
Please peruse our Pleasant Places Group, waterfront wonderlands, gracious estates, romantic cottages, and chic hideaways. We consider it an honor to be chosen as your vacation home, and we work diligently to see that your trust is rewarded beyond expectations.

About: Dear prospective Cushman Place Residence guests:
To me, creating the perfect getaway home is an art form. My past career had been as Art Director, designing publications, and later as an illustrator, creating magazine illustrations (google 'robin jareaux' to see some examples) and painting expressionistic works on canvas. My first waterfront home was 'SandyToes' vrbo 14418 -- I fell in love with SandyToes, and as perfect as it seemed, I expanded and improved it and brought out even more of its wonderful qualities with gardens, balconies, skylights, ponds and paths, drama and comfort. At that time, I was still illustrating, doing software box artwork for 'Norton Utilities' and 'C++' from my studio at SandyToes. When another cottage became available for renovation (Timberframe Cottage number 25445 ) I discovered this would become my work and my passion. Working in two dimensions was challenging and rewarding, but creating vacation homes that themselves are 'works of art' is on sizable 3D scale. My goal with my homes, as with my work before, 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 received. Please look at 'all my rental listings' to see what I've been doing (yes, it has been a huge amount of endless expensive work!) to make unique and extra-special vacation getaways. It is a labor of love... for you.
Why Plymouth: When Cushman Place came on the market, we were awed. The glorious architectural detail, impressive fireplaces, high ceilings with elaborate crown mouldings, glowing wood floors, boxwood maze in the back yard, servants quarters, master's chambers, charming rooms, the great condition of the home, the tree lined street, the short walk to the waterfront and restaurants...what a fun place to be! We embarked on the improvements of the Townhouse portion of this little 6000 sq foot mansion on Cushman Street and called it Cushman Place Residence. Why? well, it reminded us of the interesting townhouses we stayed in in London, Knightsbridge and Kensington. The improvements took effort, for sure, and obviously, this was the first Sub Zero ever installed in its dignified lifetime. Years ago, servants scurried all over the house, serving the Master and Mistress, and how they might have wished for the 21st century, where they'd be able to withdraw to a sleek and stylin' kitchen or state of the art laundry. For a two decades, the larger portion of the mansion was 'The Mabbett House' Bed and Breakfast. It may be again some day. But we believe that modern travellers prefer privacy, first class amenities, serenity – and may I repeat, PRIVACY? Our idea is that you enter your own luxurious private space, no need to chuckle up the Innkeeper or mingle with strangers over that first good cup of coffee. But if you ever need help, we are just a quick phone call or email away.
