About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps a Maximum of 5 Guests.

As of 15th September 2017, this idyllic cottage, completely renovated and now a year-round rather than seasonal home is ready for your occupancy! The cottage includes central heat and air conditioning and stands ready to host you and your family comfortably in beachfront style! All new updates allow you the best of escaping reality and enjoying The Irish Rose Cottage as your very own for a week…or more. As in days past, close your eyes and prepare yourself for leisurely waterfront living on Cape Cod Bay.

You’ll enjoy peaceful days of lazing about on the private white sand beach or on one of the two decks ~ both in the shade of tall oak trees ~ with ocean breezes and amazing water views in all directions!

When the cottage owners learned that vacationers were coming to this beautiful, secluded spot from as far away as Carmel, California as well as overseas, they decided to share their lovely retreat with those who wish to experience America’s Hometown - Plymouth, Massachusetts, New England, Cape Cod & points beyond.

This very private cottage now has a new state-of-the-art kitchen, a comfortable living room with wood-burning fireplace, as well as a spacious dining room…all with cathedral ceilings and stunning water views. As our family says, “you see more ocean than sky!” Two serene bedrooms feature king beds; the third bedroom sleeps one with a daybed. It can also be used as a hideaway or office. The second bedroom and third bedroom/studio share a beautifully-appointed completely renovated bathroom with shower while the master bedroom has the ensuite bathroom with both spacious shower and freestanding tub. And, you’ll surely enjoy our handy outside shower which allows you to rinse off after a day on the beach or the golf course.

The new kitchen is well-equipped with all stainless-steel Bosch appliances, including a 5-burner gas range and oven, convection microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator/freezer combination with ice maker. You will also find other high end touches. To list a few: Nespresso coffee maker for true barista-style coffee and iced coffee drinks, drip coffee maker for American-style coffee, Vitamix blender for the morning’s fresh juices and smoothies, as well as blended cocktails. Many guests enjoy preparing favorite dishes out on the deck by firing up the grill for hamburgers, hotdogs and the occasional seafood paella…paella pan provided!

When it's time to explore, you may enjoy venturing from the Plymouth hamlet of Cedarville to the town center of Plymouth with its historic waterfront, just a 15-minute ride away. The Cape Cod Canal, visable from the Lido Deck, is also close by. It’s a very few minutes to reach the Sagamore Bridge and access to the towns and villages on the arm of the Cape. Perhaps you’ll journey all the way to Provincetown at the very tip of the Cape! You can catch a train to Boston to explore that city or take a short drive to the mansions of Newport, and the city of Providence, RI. Exploring farther afield, the high-speed ferry from Hyannis Port provides a one-hour sea crossing to Nantucket. For your return, you may choose to grab the 10-minute Cape Air flight back to Barnstable Airport in Hyannis Port which is close to where you likely parked your car for the morning’s ferry ride! Nantucket is the magical island and historic whaling port made famous by Herman Melville in his classic novel, Moby Dick. Even closer to the mainland, you can visit the island of Martha's Vineyard for the day...a favorite summer spot of many US Presidents and other notables. It’s all easily accessible from here!

While these are exciting destinations, it's your perhaps you may choose to simply find a relaxing spot with a cool drink, a book you have been planning to read and spend the day enjoying this shiny new home in our tranquil seaside setting. Whatever your choice, your stay here is sure to be restful, recuperative and memorable. Your hosts guarantee it!

*Please note that The Irish Rose Beach Cottage is wrapping up a complete restoration and renovation and is now available year-round to lease by the week or monthly commencing 15th September, 2017. All upgrades have carefully been centered on what has made the property most coveted through the years: its privacy and views. In addition to the completely new bathrooms and kitchen, an additional 300+ square feet has been tastefully added to the home while insuring no loss of charm. The owners have been mindful that the home retain its "soul" and remains a sweet little cottage, that special ambience of The Irish Rose Beach Cottage which family, friends, and guests have enjoyed over the years.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Russ-

Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time at the Irish Rose last week! Ocean view/access was excellent, the place was clean and pretty well equipped, and Dennis was very responsive and accessible if/when we needed anything. Very impressed with how fast everyone got on top of any problems - thank you! I have to say the location was perfect for our needs to access the Cape as well as Boston. For us it also had the mix of privacy and interaction as being in the cabin itself felt very private but we’d see other folks now and then on the beach which was fun.

You have quite a gem, thanks for sharing it. We had a wonderful time and made lots of memories!

Best Regards,

Jun 2014

A magical Christmas and New Year!

  • 5 of 5

The property was a snug cottage on Cape Cod Bay with ever changing views! Even though the sometimes stormy weather which the New England Winter threw at us we loved our holiday stay.

Beautiful luxury cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Irish Rose Cottage. The owners were very responsive during the booking process and the local caretaker was very helpful during our arrival and departure. The cottage has recently been completely remodeled with high-end finishes and appliances. The master bathroom was very large with a free-standing soaking tub, very large glass shower and beautiful vanity. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. The second bathroom was also very nicely done in similar finishes. The kitchen was also beautifully done with stainless appliances, a Nespresso machine, VitaMix, etc. A private outdoor shower was a nice bonus feature. The little details were all well thought out -- like dimmable switches on all of the lights. But the nicest feature of the home was the amazing view through the 4 French doors overlooking the back deck and the ocean beyond. We could hear the waves when the doors were open. Easy drive to Plymouth or to Cape Cod.

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to be at the Irish Rose on the Blue Moon. Dennis, the caretaker, called us to tell us that we would have a perfect spot on the deck to see the moon rise and that we did! It was spectacular with phenomenal pictures to prove it. We also used the deck overlooking the water every morning to watch the sunrise over the bay with our cups of coffee. We did not get to see any whales but understand that other guests had!

Our family decided to stay in Cedarville to be out of the traffic of the Cape but close enough to be able to explore and enjoy the beaches. It is just a short ride to Plymouth where we took in some of the tourist attractions. Our Boston day was a treat with only an hour and a half drive with traffic from the cottage to downtown. This property is a perfect place to use as home base for those interested in daily excursions.

The beach was very private. There were a few people up the beach on a couple of days but otherwise we were by ourselves. The cottage is clean and neat. It is a wonderful place to rest with beds that are comfortable. We used the table outside on the porch to enjoy meals. The outside shower was awesome to get the sand off or for cooling down after sunbathing on the deck.

Our family enjoyed our time at the Irish Rose and would recommend it to others!

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home, great ocean view. Perfect spot to relax. Parking is tight and there is a long steep climb up or down the stairs to the beach but it is well worth the trip!

We chose this property because we wanted to explore both Cape Cod attractions as well as Boston. We also wanted a quiet place with beach access. We couldn't have picked a better spot! It was clean, quiet, and gorgeous views of the Cape. Our kids loved the swing and exploring the beach. For us it worked perfect to do our running around the Cape/Boston during the days and then relax back at the cottage afterwards. We hit the Rock Bottom Seafood (excellent local seafood) more than once! Huge thanks to Dennis the caretaker as well, for being on top of things all the time and always available if we needed anything. We would ABSOLUTELY recommend this property to couples or family. Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We spend one week in this wonderful beach cottage which looks exactly like on the photos. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The view from the patio and the beach is really awesome. Supermarket, liqueur shop and restaurants are quite close. We will definetely return and would recommend this beach cottage.
