...and, we blather on, RATES, PLEASE NOTE: We are required to post an "standard rate" or we will be penalized in search results.

Additional note: We are adding a mind-bxlowingly beautiful oceanfront master suite which MAY be available by the end of June.

DESCRIPTION: 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.

THE HOME: Entering through the oceanfront breezeway, you'll see the breathtaking view sweeping from Plymouth Harbor to your left all the way to Provincetown as you turn east. Enjoy the vivid sunsets over the water and at night, the twinkling lights of Plymouth, and the streak of light from the Gurnet 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.

Oceanside walls are all French doors, which open to the roomy mahogany deck. The open floor plan can accommodate six in beds plus two+ little people in the bunk room with three distinct 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.

Starting Fall 2017, we are adding, for an extra charge a stunning timber frame bedroom suite with ocean view shower and vanity, mind-blowing ocean views from your bed. Please ask as this is not currently included in the House offering and rate. The new situation will be perfect for two luxury master suites for situations needing that special unforgettable situation.

We provide everything you can imagine for your comfort and convenience at the house: Ample 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, toaster, paper goods like coffee filters, paper towels, bathroom tissue, napkins, excellent, up-to-date air-conditioning, two gas fireplaces, quality Weber gas grill with propane, firewood for the fire pit, easy access to Plymouth Long Beach just 2 miles away, or parking for one car at our House 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 spread with mansion, guesthouse, stables, gardener's cottage, caretaker's cottage, poolhouse w saltwater pool, polo fields with stone ramparts, a house modeled after the tea house at Versailles. If you remind me, 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 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 restaurant, 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 its 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, give us your dates, number of guests, length of stay. When we have something that makes you happy, 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 $150-175, 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. (Many people do, many 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 2-D was fun and rewarding, but my new 3-D 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, 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 1999

Why Robin chose South Shore Massachusetts

Jaw-dropping Incredible wraparound ocean views, a light house across the water, fireworks over the sea, utmost privacy, this is EDEN. The reviews give a few hints and the joy people feel being here. And many guests come time after time. AND NOW, we have completed a long anticipated renovation which nearly doubles the size of the oceanfront parts of the home.

What makes this house unique

4 shoreline miles from Plymouth Rock and historic downtown Plymouth. 11 miles to Cape Cod. An easy 45 miles (be sure to travel off peak!) to Boston. Zero miles to bliss.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Hello Robin, thank you so much for letting us share your wonderful cottage, it was exactly what we needed. So relaxing, and what a view! Everything was exactly what we were hoping for. If we are ever back up this way, we would love to return. Thanks so much!" - Ken and Lori

Wonderful and charming!

  • 5 of 5

Greetings everyone , my name is Donna and I just had to take a moment to write a review about this wonderful home! From the moment we walked threw the door my blood pressure went down the view was AMAZING ! Lol I own a day spa and keep very busy and I'm VERY picky about hygiene and sanitation as well because of this , and let me tell you this home was immaculate!!!!

Walks on the near by beach were great and the local restaurants were good as well. I really liked the grocery store Called The Market at Pine Hills , cute place to chill and stroll and have lunch too.

The views were outstanding! The little covered porch with the rocking chairs were my favorite place to chill, even on a rainy cloudy day , it seemed ok:)! Even our 21 year old daughter who attends BU managed to relax and enjoy the view before heading back to school.

I must take a moment to mention Ms.Robin the owner, she was professional, accessible and very friendly to deal with. We live in Houston Texas so we appreciated the cool weather and the ocean views , that being said we will be back:)! Should y'all need any other info feel free to reach out to me.

Kindly,

~ Donna

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!!

  • 5 of 5

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! Thank you Robin for allowing us to make wonderful mother/daughter memories in your beautiful home!
