If you are looking for an extraordinary 'find' for your vacation destination, you have found it. Timberframe Cottage is a delight, with its panoramic ocean views and timber frame design, vaulted 14-foot barn wood planked ceilings, heavy trusses, white wood walls, bright interesting rooms, and gracious amenities. It will exceed your expectations. Cloistered in its verdant setting with incomparable rustic-chic decor, BayShore Cottage might easily be the most handsome cottage available.

A convenient 10 miles north of Cape Cod in Manomet, 4 mi south of historic downtown Plymouth, this beautiful cottage is an ideal base for oceanfront relaxation, easy access to sightseeing, whale-watching, deep sea fishing, antiquing, boutiquing, golf, touring historic homes (some of which date to the 1600s, like VRBO 343120, which is actually available to rent for vacation!) beach combing, and swimming.

Website Being Updated Daily, Check Back: Vacationers searching the Web might overlook BayShore Cottage because of its location just north of Cape Cod. Those 'in the know' already realize that Cape Cod traffic has become horrendous at times -- an excellent reason to stay just a few miles away in the verdant coastal area with the same features but much lovelier terrain.

Entering through the pleasant breezeway, you'll see the breathtaking view sweeping from Plymouth Harbor to your left, to the Gurnet Lighthouse across the water, all the way to Provincetown as you turn east. Enjoy the spectacles of vivid sunsets over the water and at night, the twinkling lights of Plymouth, and the streak of light from the lighthouse across Plymouth Bay.

The breezeway has an overhead lighted cupola, which sheds a gentle light on your easygoing conversation or grilling while you watch the incredible sunsets over the water.

Stepping inside the open-plan cottage, you'll enter the Great Room with its 14-foot stone fireplace, timber trusses, and barnwood-planked ceiling. Attractively decorated with white slip-covered furniture, the Great Room has wide pine floors with forged nails, antique cupboards with beveled-mirror doors (reflecting the ocean view.) The kitchen runs the length of the great room and has a 14-foot long mahogany topped island with two undermount sinks/Grohe faucets, dishwasher, and a convection oven allowing the cook (or master of canapes) to be a part of the family gathering while enjoying the wraparound view. The refrigerator has an icemaker with tasty ice because our water is so good here.

The fireplace is flanked with massive antique Ottoman doors, brought back from Cyprus, which divide the Great Room from the master bedroom. This area has a vaulted ceiling, raised sleeping alcove that juts out toward the ocean, has a queen-size four-poster British West Indies bed.

Here, posts and beams create a jewel box with ocean views all around. The high windows let you peer at starlight high above the Atlantic. The bedroom's French doors open onto the wraparound mahogany deck that connects around the lodge to the Great Room and kitchen.

This handsomely renovated cottage has two full baths - one upstairs with a mahogany countertop, vessel sink, Grohe faucet, marble shower with pebble floor, and skylights above the shower and toilet. The other bathroom has a 4 foot shower, new vanity, stone walls, and separate toilet alcove around the corner for privacy by the roomy walk in closet.

Three sides of the cottage have walls of French doors, which open to the roomy deck. The open floor plan can accommodate six in beds plus two+ little people in the bunk room with three distinctly separate sleeping areas.

The lower level suite of rooms includes a den/sleeping area, laundry, bathroom, and an additional bunk room behind a sliding barn door. For two couples, this is a 2 bedroom+1 bunk room house. For a family which can sleep in a more open plan setup, there is an extra twin in each couple's area, so the house sleeps 6 plus 2 in bunk beds.

We provide absolutely everything you can imagine for your comfort and convenience at the house: Ample ice linens,towels, beach towels, laundry supplies, a well-stocked kitchen with spices, oil, condiments, and baking needs, Ice maker, Miele convection oven, induction cooktops (so you can move them and cook facing the ocean) quality pots and pans, nice dishes, quality wine glasses and glassware, silverware, small appliances like Cuisinart, mixer, toaster, paper goods like coffee filters, paper towels, bathroom tissue, napkins, excellent air-conditioning, two gas fireplaces, quality Weber gas grill with propane, firewood for the fire pit, easy access to Plymouth Long Beach just 1 mile away, or parking for one car at our Hhouse by the Sea where we have a magnificent private Hawaii-like beach.

The neighborhood is very interesting it used to be the elaborate Stone Estate, a magnificent estate with mansion, guesthouse, stables, gardener's cottage, caretaker's cottage, poolhouse w saltwater pool, polo fields with stone ramparts, t house modeled after the tea house at Versailles.

I will send you an aerial photograph of the estate from the 1930s which shows the extensive grounds, buildings and hinterlands of forested oceanfront acreage (where our house now sits.)

There is a chic new grocery store called the market at Pine Hills, ...excellent cheese shop, top-quality meats, great seafood, wonderful atmosphere and the wine shop next door with excellent selection. Downtown Plymouth has lots of good restaurants the Mayflower ship, Plymouth Rock, Plimoth plantation (Which is like a trip in a time machine back to the 1600s.) Farther south there is the Cape Cod Canal bikeway, Over the bridge is the quaint town of sandwich with seafood shops grocery stores historic homes, Antiques, restaurants...

Then again, you may never want to leave oceanfront Timberframe cottage, because it is so beautiful there...

To reserve, just email me with YES and I will send our friendly one page PDF rental agreement.

50% personal check is due within four days, the balance is due three weeks before you arrive.

13% tax is included. Final cleaning fee is $150, Which you write as a personal check which stays in your file. It is mailed back to you if you choose to leave the house exactly as clean and ready as it was when you walked in. (Most people do, some people don't.)

About Robin

To me, creating the perfect waterfront getaway home is an art form. My lifelong career had been in designing publications, and later creating magazine illustrations (google 'robin jareaux') and painting expressionistic works on canvas. When I first decided to rent my weekend home so I could renovate an incredible but dilapidated cottage (which became, at great expense, 'Timberframe Cottage') I did not know this would become my work and my passion. Working in 2d was fun and rewarding, but my new ART is creating vacation homes that themselves are 'works of art.' My goal with my homes 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 we've received. Finding just the right furnishings, using classic Nantucket decor, using materials such as massive beams, barnwood ceilings, wide pine floors, RL sheets, antique cabinets, and creating gardens overflowing with roses and peonies, clematis, daylilies, gigantic buried stepping stones, blueberries, raspberries, foxgloves (can you tell it is June as I write this?) expanses of mahogany countertop, fine appliances, stone fireplaces, stained glass, with views that will take your breath away. Please look at 'all my rental listings' to see my portfolio: art in the form of unique and exceptional vacation getaways. It is a labor of love... for you.

Robin purchased this house in 2002

Why Robin chose Manomet

Incredible wraparound ocean views, a light house across the water, fireworks over the sea, utmost privacy, this is EDEN.

Amazingly Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a place! I contacted Robin at the very last minute about staying for the weekend, and she couldn't have been more accommodating. From the second I stepped into the warm, cozy cottage I was captivated by the place. While I can imagine that this is amazing during the summer months, I actually am very happy that I was there with snow on the ground and chilly winds blowing. The comfort, security and warmth of the cottage cuddled up in front of the fireplace was the perfect place to be on a cold and snowy weekend. The cottage is stocked with absolutely every comfort you could possibly imagine. The decor is just beautiful. This is truly a loved and well cared for place where you can rest, relax and rejuvenate. Did I mention the view?! Holy smokes is it amazing. Drifting off to sleep at night while looking out over the ocean at the lights of Plymouth Harbor and the lighthouse in the distance was just awesome. I didn't want to leave! Big thanks to Robin for sharing this amazing property with all of us.

Well equipped luxury cottage with character and amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a great experience at Timberframe Cottage! After making arrangements for a late arrival with Robin the house was lite up and very welcoming. We were so amazed with the cottage! So much attention to detail! The owners have made it so comfy and accommodating. Everything was really well thought out and decorated so nicely. Location is quiet just off 3A. 10 minutes from Plymouth. We visited in November and made use of the gas fireplaces. The house has so much character and high quality amenities. Keurig coffee, utensils, a pantry stocked with spices, etc.. We found a photo album that showed the cottage before the owners renovated it. Wow what a transformation! Our kids were sad to learn the second half of our vacation was to be spent in a hotel in Boston. As far as Plymouth: Cornerstone Cafe is excellent! Mamma Mia's pizza EXCELLENT! And we recommend a trip to Sandwich to see the historic city and eat at Cafe Chew. again Excellent! Robin was great to work with and we would definitely stay at any of her properties if we return to the Cape!

Upon our very late arrival after an exhausting drive, we were relieved to find an enchanting cottage with one of the most relaxing views we've ever seen! Amenities in the "cottage" itself were, by far, the best we've encountered in all the VRBO rentals we've stayed in. The kitchen is truly a chef's kitchen, complete with every utensil one could imagine including very sharp knives. The master bed was super comfy with lots of quilts for chilly nights. Whether cooking, reading, answering work emails, or waking up in bed, you always find yourself staring outside at the water, even in inclement weather. The outdoor space was an extension of the kitchen/family room, one could spend all day out there. I took advantage of the outdoor shower (not mentioned in the description, but a huge plus!) every day! Make sure to visit nearby Plymouth, not only for the history, but for the food and drink (Nosh Tavern and British Beer Co.) The Lobster Pound in Manomet Point provided fresh seafood for several succulent dinners. I would recommend this property to anyone who loves peace and quiet, getting close to nature and who really appreciates special touches in a beautifully restored beach cottage. Robin was readily available and answered any questions we had during our stay.

Amazing Ocean Retreat - 45 mins from Boston, but worlds away!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a quick pre-Summer escape from the city. The Timberframe Cottage was a lucky find! It is everything you could hope for - an easy drive from Boston, situated in a quiet & secluded overlook, capturing the simplicity of country living with every imaginable modern amenity including wifi and cable. We spent most of our evenings on the deck grilling then migrating towards the fire pit near the edge of the bluff - toasting smores, enjoying the sunset, and staring at the stars. The house is warm, welcoming, and light filled. You wake up in the master bedroom surrounded by windows looking across the woodland property. A great treat is brewing the first cup of coffee and deciding where to sit and enjoy it - the living room looking out to the sea, the deck under the shade of the trees, or the porch seating area directly beneath the cupola? We took time to explore the sights in Plymouth and Duxbury, but the real vacation is staying on the property and enjoying the fresh sea air, the sun moving across the sky, and the endless opportunities to lounge and unwind. We will certainly return to this great retreat - so close to the city but worlds away.

Weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

This home was amazing!! We couldn't stop saying wow with every room we walked in. After dinner Friday eve we were sitting in living room. Someone said "DEER" sure enough there they were two of them, looking at us!! God is good to provide us with his creature. Thank you Robin for being so generous in opening your wonderful home. The before an after picture of the renovation were wonderful to see how you transformed this ugly duckling to a beautiful swan! God Bless!! We certainly will be renting this home if we are ever back in this area.

Rustic Cottage with Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed our stay in this cottage. The cottage had plenty of room for two adults and three daughters (11, 14 & 17). The cottage was clean and nicely decorated. The wood floors and ceilings were beautiful. The master bedroom had amazing views of the bay and the bed is surrounded by windows on three sides which made for beautiful views and cool breezes at night.

While there are homes on both sides of the cottage, the way the landscaping and lot is set-up, you don't see any neighbors.The view of the bay from inside the house and the back deck was a perfect way to begin and end our days.

We stayed in the cottage for 7 days and used it as our "base" to explore Plymouth, Cape Cod, Newport and Boston. It was a convenient drive to all locations. We enjoyed exploring Plymouth and all of the history about the Pilgrims and early days of our country. We also enjoyed exploring the charming towns of Cape Cod and the beautiful mansions in Newport.

Robin was a pleasure to work with through the entire process and was very responsive to all of our needs and questions.
