About robin

See my other listings for info about our rare destination homes

robin purchased this house in 2013

Why robin chose South of Boston

Plymouth is historic, Plymouth is American's beginnings. Sometimes you have to look twice to recognize the past under layers of progress...hat mansion (now professional office condos or lawyers offices) or that textile mill (only partly there and now Isaacs Restaurant, winery, visitor's center.) So look twice and see back in time to when this fancy guesthouse served as an1830s carriage and horse barn. It was converted into a home 1920s, and survived to be reimagined (and almost totally rebuilt) as an excitingluxury Guest House.

What makes this house unique

Walk to all of Historic downtown Plymouth attractions - 1 block to whale watch boats and harbor, 2 blocks to Plymouth Rock and Mayflower ship, 3 blocks to Brewster Gardens park and stream. Walk to restaurants, museums, art galleries, coffee shops and boutique, antique malls and fancy clothiers, Setting the Space, the Exchange Antques, Blue Blinds Bakery, Plymouth Center for the Arts, exciting antique stores like The Exchange and Plymouth Antiques and Main Street Antiques, monuments, statures, gardens, souvenirs shops with their tee shirts, pubs and more pubs, lobster, gourmet food, a new "gastro pub called The Tasty), downscale seafood, upscale seafood, upscale Italian, tea room (oops, now it is a bagel and coffee shop) , Flax+Life Is Good boutique, run distillery, breakfast places, rich architectural heritage in its ancient homes (see ANTIQUE MILL STREAM COTTAGE at the Grist MIll. Http://www.vrbo.com/343120 ) the luxury 330 year old guest house with 2 Sub Zero refrigerators, central air , and a waterfall.

What an amazing stay we had!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very charming well maintained home in walking distance to town. We absolutely loved it! The owners were amazing and we really felt well taken care of! I would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting more space than what a hotel room offers and also to experience some of the old world charm Plymouth has to offer. It's important to know that this charming home has been completely renovated and decorated in very excellent taste!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. With 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, our home is indeed more space than hotel room! And while we are on a quiet street, we are actually IN Town -- just a long block from the harbor and whale watch boats, restaurants, parks, boutiques, and antique shops. To be more 'IN town' you'd need to be sitting atop Plymouth Rock.

We had the best time. The carriage house was delightful, very clean, roomy, well stocked and we loved being within walking distance of down town.

The owners themselves are grand people!!!

We would all go again ---- and hope to one day.

Carriage House Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Since all of our children would be celebrating Christmas this year with their in-laws, we decided to have our family's Christmas the week before and start the tradition of renting a house big enough to accommodate all of us in a cozy New England destination.

Upon our arrival the cheerful yellow front door greeted us with a festive wreath and candles twinkled in every window. There was even a duralog in the basket by the fireplace, which I promptly lit while we decorated the tree that we had brought along.

The house itself was gorgeous, spotless, and well stocked with everything we needed for a cozy Christmas. I will also say that the house is bigger in person than it appears in the pictures on line. There was plenty of room for us (7 adults, one toddler, and 2 small dogs) to really spread out. We cooked delicious meals in the beautiful kitchen, watched Christmas movies in the huge living room while the fire crackled. Played games, saw the historic sights, ate out, strolled around the downtown and just about fell into the comfy beds at night happy and exhausted from all of the fun. We even woke up on our "Christmas" morning to a gentle snow fall and the front walk and sidewalk had already been shoveled. Picture perfect!

This was our first time renting a home on line and the experience was perfect from start to finish. Everything far exceeded my expectations and we will definitely be back to do this again. My only regret is that we didn't book for a longer stay. Thank you Robin for your hospitality! 🎄

PERFECTION IN PLYMOUTH AT THE CARRIAGE HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us; my 94-year-old mother, daughter and granddaughter and I converged on the Carriage House. To our surprise our first night in town was Plymouth’s Holiday open house, with beautifully trimmed windows, carolers, and a marathon through town. The Carriage House was a perfect refuge from the chill after our brisk cool walk through town over to the statute of Massasoit then down to Plymouth Rock.

The colors, furnishings fireplace that greeted us were the makings of a Hollywood Holiday movie set. A fully stocked, spacious eat in gourmet kitchen served as a gathering spot, as local family members dropped by to say hello to the families Matriarch, my mother. We cooked, laughed, celebrated family and the Holiday throughout our stay. It was truly magical, and I am certain never to be duplicated.

Robin, was kind and helpful throughout the entire process, extended courtesies to help me manage this cross-country trek with a wheelchair bound women. The first-floor bedroom was a God send. I was asked often why would we leave sunny California in December for Plymouth. It was because there is nothing like Plymouth in the winter. First; fewer tourists, more community, beautiful landscapes, (still got my fried clams with bellies thank you), and an authentic Holiday atmosphere. I loved it. I woke like a 10 year old, each morning. I’d jump out of bed pull up the shades and peer out looking for white powder outside. We got a bit of hale, which my daughter dubbed snow pellets, and so we counted it as snow… 

All in all everything from making my reservations, to entry, departure and my stay were perfect. If you are looking at the Carriage House as a possibility for a stay in Plymouth, stop and go no further. This is the place you want to stay. I promise you will be satisfied. I loved it.

Thank you, Robin,…

Pure Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Words can not begin to express how much my family and I enjoyed our stay in this charming house! We rented the Carriage house for my daughter's wedding. We wanted somewhere beautiful for her to get dressed in, take pictures and have her bridal party surround her for her big day. As soon as we walked in, it felt like HOME!! It was the perfect home in EVERY way! It was warm, inviting, beautiful furnished, immaculate and fully equipped with every detail. I wish there were more stars to rate this property! It is definitely a 5+++ rental!!

Robin, the owner, is awesome to work with. She was very accommodating. She always answered all my questions and returned my calls and emails promptly. I had the pleasure of meeting her and she was as lovely and charming as I expected!

I, of course, HIGHLY recommend this home and would love to return one day soon!

Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

The location, size and furnishings were perfect for our immediate family which came from three states for our son's wedding week. The neighborhood was quiet, but just a few minutes walk to the interesting downtown Plymouth shops and a wide variety of waterfront dining sites. It is a classy home with beautiful touches and was very comfortable and inviting. The home's details were endless and a lot of thought went into providing for all of one's needs and more. The pictures on the website gave a true description of the Carriage House.
