  • Idyllic!

    "What a idyllic spot! Beauty & Tranquility Galore! Lovely, well kept cottage with so much charm. The view from the Living room and upstairs master bedroom is perfection. Great for kayaking as not much motorized boat traffic on the cove. The nearby owners were very gracious and helpful but not intrusive. Did I mention the outdoor shower--GREAT, we didn't take an indoor shower all week. Hope to go back again!"

  • Lovely Cottage!

    "My husband, daughter and I stayed here in July and it was wonderful! The house was very clean and the beds were comfy. It was so nice having a kitchen and a place to eat in the back screened in lanai(lovely lanai). We didn't use the air conditioning to much because there was always a nice breeze that carried through the house. I would definitely stay here again. My family and I travel a lot and this house was a great place for a vacation. The owner was also very nice and accommodating. The garden in the back was nice and we even used the fire pit one night to make smores! This place felt like home."

  • 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!"

  • Kurt & Barbara Eyster

    "Your home is located in an excellent and very peaceful area. We have enjoyed our stay so far and have been pleased with meeting neighbors and exploring the surrounding area. We feel remote and yet, close enough to civilization if we choose to go there. There are plenty of opportunities for walks, drives and kayaking. It is beautiful and peaceful."
