DEAR PROSPECTIVE GUESTS: we are required to list a "standard rate" but we don't really have a "standard rate" because our off season rates are based (1) time of year ( holiday or not) (2) number of guests and (3) length of stay (longer stays get lower rates.) Holiday weeks and High Season weeks are $3850/week for 6-8 guests. We are happy to discount but are unable to list all the variables. Call or email and we'll try to help you with your dates.

The Carriage House on Cushman Street: 1800s carriage and horse barn (1800) converted to home (1890) recreated as luxury Guesthouse (2015.) We have just completed a dramatic makeover of this charming home right in the heart of lively downtown Plymouth. The perfect place to stay, whether you are here in Plymouth researching your Pilgrim forebears, or bride and bridesmaids looking for an elegant home for preparations for THE DAY. Families meeting from across the country will love making this home base for touring historic sites, fun in sun and sand, nightlife, trips to Fenway, Boston, the Cape, Newport -- so good to have a luxurious and convenient place to call home-away-from-home.

FIRST FLOOR:
- Bright foyer with cheerful starry carpet
- Large double living room with fireplace and dining space
- Top quality Wolf/SubZero kitchen with bay window seating, powder room,
- Private main level Queen en suite bedroom with private shower bathroom.
- Separate downstairs bathroom/powder room so the private bedroom doesn't have to share its bathroom
- Wraparound farmer's porch

SECOND FLOOR:
- Large Queen bedroom with canopy bed, digital TV, wet bar/vanity and en suite full shower bathroom with special architectural features
- Bedroom with antique full-size bed
- Twin bedroom with 2 single beds and 3 delightful dormers
- Laundry room attached to
- Full shower bathroom (this house does not have a tub at this time)
- Second story wraparound upper deck of farmer's porch (coming soon)

YARD
- Compact downtown yard with lawn, barbecue area, Weber grill,


We provide privacy, a beautiful in-town stay, understated luxury and comfort, a classy kitchen with Sub Zero and Wolf state-of-the-art appliances, spacious living room with fireplace and fabulous wet bar with Sub Zero fridge drawers hidden in microwave pantry. Abundance of space to sort through your maps, guidebooks, history books, cameras and smartphone uploads to your photo cloud. Beautiful breakfast window seat in kitchen for un-serious dining and checking email via wifi. This home offers four (total) comfortable bedrooms with quality linens. Two of the bedrooms are "en suite" with private bathrooms. And the upstairs master even has its own wet bar/morning kitchen for a tad of privacy for the parents (while the grandparents reconnect with the grandkids downstairs?) All new bathrooms with classic tile showers and granite countertops. Amazing kitchen with all top quality appliances. And LOCATION...all in a yesteryear home you can rent like a hotel so you can play tourist without getting stuck in a bland boxy hotel room.

Fully central air conditioned throughout the home, wraparound breezy farmer's porch. Totally separate from the first floor bedroom's private full shower bath - a graceful amenity created for the main purpose of accommodating our revered elder guests and those with a bit of mobility issues. (we are mobility-friendly, not fully ADA.)

FIRST FLOOR: Bright foyer with cheerful star carpet, large living room with fireplace, top quality kitchen with bay window seating, powder room, private main level bedroom with private shower bathroom.

SECOND FLOOR which you get to from the wide antique staircase, where the ceiling vaults two stories up to carriage house windows, large carriage lanterns hanging from 12 foot chains; airy, spacious well onto the bedrooms… large sunny master bedroom with king bed and flat screen TV, private shower bathroom with large shower and recessed toilet cubby with interior window (though with total privacy). On the bedroom level there is also a peaceful east-facing bedroom (double bed) plus a large 3-dormer singles room with 2 single beds (plus 2 rollaways). Again, all is centrally air conditioned. Shower bathroom and laundry room on second floor for the non-master bedrooms.

Step out your door, and 30 feet away, a few times a year are the famous parades at Thanksgiving and Independence day. A block beyond that is the harbor and whale watch boats, seafood eateries, restaurants, fine dining, and even fresh caught seafood to bring home and grill. Historic sites abound, along with walk-to-everything boutiques, antiques, museums, art galleries (not like Provincetown, but we are getting there!)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: See my other listings for info about our rare destination homes

Why the Owner Chose Plymouth, MA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
