About the property

Sleeps 6, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 4 Kayaks


Overlooking Historic Kingston and Duxbury Harbors, this house provides an amazing private getaway for Families, Couples, Groups, and History Buffs. Few miles away from Plymouth, but far enough to avoid Cape Cod traffic; 45min from Downtown Boston.

The House:

3 bedrooms (Sleeps 6), 1 bathroom, a spacious kitchen, comfortable den, screened-in wrap around porch with ocean views of Kingston and Duxbury Harbors, an outside deck, and a HUGE fenced in yard that's big enough for a good volley ball, frisbee, and washer toss games.

Included with your rental:

* Sheets and Towels

* Kitchen fully stocked with cooking and eating utensils

* Propane Grill

* Cable TV (Basic Cable + HBO, SHOTIME, STARZ)

* Wifi Internet

* 4 Kayaks (with kayak liability waiver)

* Air conditioning for 2 bedrooms

The Kingston/Plymouth Area:

All around Kingston, Plymouth, and adjacent cities/towns are historical markers, state parks, museums, tours, lots of historical significant sites to explore including most famous: Plymouth Rock, Mayflower II, .Plimouth Plantation, and Miles Standish Monument in Duxbury. Those are a fraction of the sites that surround us. You will not be bored seeking them out!

(Directly up the street from our house (about 1/8-mile) is where the Captain of the Mayflower had his own house (a monument marks the location)).

Along with the rich history of the area there are lots and lots of restaurants (small & big), shops, whale watches, fishing outings, ferry's to Providence Town; if you're in need of something from a department store, The Independence Mall & other department stores are not far from us.

Again, please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions about the house, the area, or any other specific need you may have.

About Andy Gillis

Hi Homeaway Community!

I'm a Massachusetts native and our cottage in Kingston has been my summer home for my entire life.

Our house has a lot of meaning to me because of the personal connection that our family has with it & I love sharing the cottage experience with our renters.

Please let me know if there is anything we can answer for you about the cottage or the area.

Thank you for checking out our property, we look forward to hearing from you!

Beautiful cottage by the water.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our weekend in MA in this lovely house. Great view of the bat and a large yard to play/relax in. Short drive to Plymouth waterfront and right around the corner from Persy's.

Will definitely keep this place in mind for future trips back south.

This is a Great Vacation House on the South Shore in Kingston MA. This is a great house to escape from the drudgery of every day life. Rustic, quiet but close enough for those who want to venture forth and explore Cape Cod. Right next door to historic Plymouth, Mass. Swim, explore, dine, or just lay back and watch the days go by.
