The building consists of units on the second and third floors and commercial space on the first floor. It was recently renovated and has a combination of the charm of yesteryear and all the modern amenities including granite countertops, central air conditioning, and a full size washer and dryer. Our vacation rental is the ideal base of operations for your Wedding, local event, or spectacular summer vacation. Cohasset Village is home to a picturesque town common, top ranked restaurants, and unique boutiques. Cohasset harbor, a working harbor with a fleet of more than 30 lobster boats as well as marina and docking facilities.
My husband and I rented the Abigail unit in the Samuel Bates House for a week in June while in Cohasset for our son's wedding. The location was perfect with nearby sandwich and coffee shops and is a 5-10 minute walk to the picturesque Cohasset harbor. It is right on a great running and biking route. We were about 1.5 miles to lovely Sandy Beach. A beach pass, along with beach chairs and towels were all provided. The unit was well equipped with plenty of linens, paper products, gas grill and washer/dryer. It was very quiet despite the location in the center of town.
We would certainly recommend the Samuel Bates House and hope to visit again.

After spending a week at the Samuel Bates House for a wedding, Cohasset has become our favorite destination on the East Coast.
The House is right across from the town Common, historic community churches, museums, and bakeries, making travel with our 3 young children so much easier. We were able to walk all over downtown Cohasset, and the owners provide the apartment with a free parking pass in case we wanted to drive to the beach, which is right down the road. Our children also loved that the House was equipped with beach chairs, beach towels and baskets, and beach toys; we loved that we didn't have to pack all those extras. A variety of books, board games, and DVDs are also provided, so it gave us time to relax while the kids played. We recommend ordering in from the amazing restaurant (Bia's) just below the apartment for a delicious dinner. Even though we were there on a weekend, we did not hear noise from the restaurant, yet we appreciated its convenience.
Cohasset is a great destination for anyone who appreciates a charming coastal retreat, yet is very convenient to the Boston area by train or car. The Samuel Bates House was a true find -- beautifully decorated with all the amenities of home.
Next time we visit the East Coast, we'll be sure to return.
My wife, our 10 month old son, and I recently had the pleasure of staying in this beautifully renovated and well appointed condo in downtown Cohasset. The furnishings and decorating brings out the New England seacoast charm, while also offering all of the comforts needed for an ideal stay.
It's location is ideal; situated in the heart of downtown Cohasset. Cohasset itself is a gorgeous destination that has something to offer for everyone.
We would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for the perfect place to stay along the coast of the south shore. It’s both family friendly, as well as romantic and charming. We’ll be looking forward to our next stay at the Samuel Bates House.
