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 barnwood 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 miles from 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!) beachcombing, 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.
Website Being Updated Daily: 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 slip-covered furniture from Crate and Barrel, 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 newly 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 shower, antique pedestal sink, stone walls, and separate toilet alcove and 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 four 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.
