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.
Robin purchased this Townhome in 2006
Why Robin chose 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.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful home for the week. We loved everything about it! Not only is it gorgeous inside and out, it is in a perfect location - just a short walk to the harbor, shops, parks, and restaurants. So glad that we found this property - and that it was available the week we requested!!
Wonderful townhouse in a perfect location!
We spent several weeks in the townhouse and enjoyed every minute of it!
The house itself has an abundance of period features and comes with a fully equipped kitchen and an amazing fireplace to gather around after dinner. We also enjoyed the close proximity to a great range of restaurants, and a bit of street life just around the corner even though the house is on a quiet street.
To top it off, Robin and John were the perfect hosts, making sure we had everything we needed throughout the stay.
We would love to come back!
Serene, elegant, comfortable
We loved it, we never wanted to leave. They graciously supplied a high chair and pack n play for our little one. Absolutely perfect.
Another perfect home that Robin, the owner, rents! It is so beautiful and warm! Comfortable, great location, fully equipped and immaculate! The furniture, the high end kitchen, the decorations all make it an amazing home to rent! You can not go wrong with this 5 star plus vacation rental! I would highly recommend this property over all the hotels in the area!
We stayed here for a horseshow in Halifax Ma. Place was perfect and the owner was very helpful and welcoming.. A definite must if your looking for a beautiful place to stay.
Great House - Great Location
This house was the perfect! You felt like you were in period time visiting one of the birthplaces of our country. Very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was a delight to cook in. Beds comfortable. Walking distance to waterfront with restaurants and all historical activities. I would highly recommend this great vacation spot. Thanks Robin!
Cushman Place Residence is right in historic Downtown Plymouth, just a few blocks (an easy walk) from waterfront with its seafood restaurants and Whale Watch boats, deep sea fishing cruises. Another couple of blocks away is Plymouth Rock, the Mayflower II, and the beautiful Brewster Gardens, Town Brook, streaming through the heart of Plymouth, with statues of Pilgrim ancestors, precious gardens, serene sitting spots, and a verdant walk to the historic Jenney Grist Mill. From there visit the quaint shops, and climb beautiful burial hill, with its centuries-old headstones of our forebears, and a breathtaking view of Plymouth harbor. Back downhill, you're on Main Street with its antique shops, restaurants, boutiques, and a waterfront dotted with souvenir shops and fun food. Plymouth has historic homes and buildings from the 1600s, great shopping, delightful architecture, and excellent restaurants, pubs, and music -- all footsteps from Cushman Place Residence.
