If you are looking for an extraordinary 'find' for your getaway, 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 our VRBO 343120, which is actually available to rent for vacation!) beach combing, and swimming.

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.

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 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 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. If you remind me, II 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.) Hope to see you soon.

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 South Shore Massachusetts

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

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a place, the pictures didn't lie. We really enjoyed Timberframe Cottage! Words can't describe the beauty of the home and the views. Everything was clean and in great condition. Plenty of outdoor seating and a great breezeway. Enjoyed the fire pit. Very tranquil and private. Great for families and friends. Definitely would come back.

Memorable - from the breathtaking ocean views to the interior (and exterior) architectural and design details. This cottage sweeps you away from your everyday life to the ocean views. If you want hype, go elsewhere. If you are looking for an 'exhale' with a touch of New England history nearby (do not miss the whale watching experience), this is your oasis of rejuvenation. The owners have created a cottage chic/luxe experience from top to bottom with special details that the photos show, but can only be enjoyed in real life. Thank you, Robin! You've made this a retreat for your guests. (And the greyhounds thank you, too - they LOVED the yard - big enough for a mini race course!).

Unique cottage by the sea with the Ritz touch of class

  • 5 of 5

Timber frame cottage was a wonderful, cozy cottage on the sea side in the Monomet section of Plymouth. Close to everything but far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of the beautiful, natural surroundings. A mile down the road we went to the recommended "lobster pound" where I picked up a perfectly prepared lobster feast! I didn't have to smell up the house or make a mess! They did it all for me!

I noticed the little touches that made a world of difference! Not only was it well equipped, it had fresh flowers, perfectly folded towels, soft sheets, cozy quilts, even wood was provided for the firepit.

Robin was so accommodating! I asked if there was HBO because we absolutely couldn't miss Game of Thrones season finale, she added it to the cable service for us!

Thank you Robin, we hope to return next year!

Perfect Getaway Cottage!!

This cozy, eclectic cottage makes for the perfect getaway spot! Whether you are tucked into bed in the cozy first floor suite, enjoying an afternoon beverage at the beautiful wooden kitchen counter, or relaxing with a cup of coffee on the deck you have a breathtaking view of Plymouth Harbor! The house was very neat and clean when we arrived and we had everything we needed to make meals right at home. This adorable cottage proved to be the perfect location for our mother/daughter weekend!

Coolest House . . . Incredible Views!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with this amazing home away from home for our mother-daughter weekend. We LOVED this fascinating and funky house. The minute we walked in we fell in love. It is awesome! The view is breathtaking and they've thought of everything as far as meeting any/all our needs for a fun and comfortable stay. We had all our meals at the house because we just didn’t want to leave. We'll be back for sure! - Stacy F

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.
