About the Property

5BR/3BA Sleeps up to 15

I'm happy to offer you a welcoming antique Arts and Crafts Style Beach Bungalow in nostalgic "Manomet Bluffs" area of Plymouth, MA...America's Hometown! The house offers 5 bedrooms (which includes the enclosed sleeping porch) and 3 bathrooms. We can sleep up to 15 people and make your weekly rate very affordable starting at $75/nt/person for a family of 6 and then only $50/nt for any additional family members or guests!

It's a charming Year-Round Home with something to offer anyone wanting to stay four season's out of the year. It's an enchanting Summer Hide-a-Way with throw back's to the roaring 1920's. Well, more of a purrr, really. It was designed to be a showcase during simpler times when 'summer vacation' meant just that. Families from all over would pack up their city belongings and head on down to their little piece of heaven, carved out by the beach. A get-away from all the "noise" and busy-ness.

Escaping to sea-filled air, they'd enjoy friends and families gathering in the sands as they had for years past. Summer gardens would go in. Neighborhood cook-outs, clam bakes, lobsters, campfires, passing good books around, singing, laughing! ...crying maybe. Summer was here! No longer were they just looking forward to reuniting, catching up, & picking up where they left off last summer. They'd escaped the heat and where thrilled to have the cooler temps by the sea. Ultimately, they found life a little bit sweeter and settled into greater peace as the summer progressed and nourished their souls again.

Then, a change in the air, migratory birds, they'd pack it all back up. Often, after a big Labor Day Weekend party divised to say their good-bye's, clean out their fridgerator's...& pantry's and put the summer garden's to bed. Everyone would pitch in for a final sweep through, washing, folding & putting away the last of the bedding and tidying up before... heading on home for the kids to start back to school. Year after year, generation after generation, the cycle continues! Although the time spent together is shorter, this home still tells 'that' wonderful story and is reminiscent of meaningful and treasured times for many. I'm happy to share it. Welcoming new families & old friends every year who can carve out 'their time' and create 'their space' to come and enjoy it!

We're just 5 houses back from stair access (3 flights of stairs w/bench seating between flights) to Manomet Beach. Known to generations of families who've vacationed here over the years, we now welcome yours. Manomet Beach is a private residential beach where you'll cherish long strolls, kayaking, sun & moon rises over Cape Cod Bay, seals, beach combing, finally finish that book and find some much deserved R&R in a quiet corner by yourself and/or with family & friends beside you.

Just 10 minutes south of downtown Plymouth, local area attractions include America's Hometown Historic Plymouth sights including: Plimoth Plantation, Mayflower II & Plymouth Rock. There's Deep Sea Fishing, Whale Watching, Harbor & Dinner Cruises, Golfing, Antiques, Shops, Restaurants, Biking, Hiking & More.

We're located 50 min. South of Boston and 15 min. North of the Cape Cod Canal. We're also walking distance to Manomet Center.

Ferry rides to Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket & P-Town make great day trips!

Your contributing to the stewardship and legacy of a nearly 100 year old character-filled New England shingle styled cottage. Insuring it's preservation so that many will continue to be able to enjoy it, for many generations to come. Additionlly, we're looking forward to one day enclosing the stable house to create a studio space in which we can offer yoga classes, weekly meditations, & integrative whole health and life healing workshops. We continue to expand our organic garden and hope to extend the season with construction of a green house. We now have 5 sweet hens and offer fresh eggs to folks who wish to enjoy. Thank you for choosing to spend your summer vacation with us on Manomet Beach and supporting Plymouth's Year Round Vacation Retreat House.

Guests wanting a little help deeping their R&R, local massage and reiki practitioners are available but must be scheduled in advance on and off site. More information is available upon request.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: It is said...."There's something lyrical about cottages" "Cottages ring true to the image of America's favorite homes - one of a kind tune with nature". "Cottages are...intuitive, woven into the fabric of every cultures folk tales,...represent the universal home and are best defined by look and feel rather than architectural rules." M. Caren Connolly and Louis Wasserman define a cottage as "intimate, bucolic, and quintessentialy expressive of the owner's imagination." Well, this cottage was imagined and expressed through the love of two people in 1924 and the owners have certainly inspired families who've lived here and their imagination over the last 93 years. It's hard to believe that when my parents first set eyes on this wonderful home and met the owners who held the key to thier future in 1974, there then two year old daughter would some day come back to own and care for this special place herself. As it's Centenial year approaches may this home continue to serve the love that inspired it. I'm happy to share and offer this special place to you and your family, what ever you like to call it, home, cottage by the sea, beach bungalow, retreat, escape, getaway, sanctuary, respit, holiday home, gathering spot....the list is long and they all fit! I'm just happy to welcome you and happy this home continues to inspire young and old, please come and enjoy. I look forward to meeting you.
