South Shore Massachusetts House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

This house is unique in design. The upstairs kitchen and master bedroom have cathedral ceilings with fans. Many of the building materials used were from older buildings and structures. The front door is 4’ wide, it was part of an elementary school as well as the antique coat rack. There are 5 atrium doors overlooking the deck and pond.

The kitchen is 23 x 18 and has an incredibly lengthy 11’ table and seats 8. The cabinets were rescued from a chemistry lab from St. Regis College. The appliances are stainless steel, the drawers and cupboards are fully stocked with all utensils and cooking aids. I will provide the basic food items of spices, sugar, tea, etc. The butcher block counter is 12' x 3' has plenty of working space. The hutch holds pots, pans, baking dishes, serving and mixing bowls and basically anything you could possible need.

The downstairs living room is 25 x 20 and has a sizeable leather sectional, a comfy recliner and an overstuffed chair. For your viewing pleasure the bookcases are stocked with over 100 DVDs. If you desire to curl up and read you can choose from over 500 books to peruse, literature for all ages. If listening to music is your preference, also on hand are 500 cassettes and 300 albums and yes there is something to play them on! If you have talent for instruments or just like to have fun, there is a piano, a guitar and a PA system with 2 microphones. Rock on! A table that seats 4 is also in the living room and you can choose from over 30 board games to play.

This home is suitable for small family functions like Christenings, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, etc. and can accommodate up to 50 people. The deck off the kitchen is 23' x 18' with a high patio table and a grille. The side deck is 30' x 24' with built in bench seats which can seat about 15 to 20 people and 2 large picnic tables. The lower patio is 35' x 25' and has 3 pink granite tables that seat 12. There is also an outdoor dry bar that seats 6. The outdoor living area offers plenty of lounging space for extra guests.

It’s all about location, location, location. This is perfect for a wide variety of activities and outings. Logan Airport in Boston is an hour away. The mansions in Newport RI are an hour and 20 minutes. It's only minutes away from the Cape bridges.

Historic downtown Plymouth is 10 minutes away and is where the Mayflower II is along with the incredibly charming waterfront which boasts whale watching, sunset cruises, deep sea fishing, waterfront festivals, free concerts and farmers markets. Enjoy antiquing and other unique shops. For your dining experience other non-franchise restaurants include East Bay, Cabby Shack, Anna's Harborside, Tavern on the Wharf Lobster Hut, Waterfront Grille, Sam Diegos, Issacs and Mama Mia’s.

Keywords: I invite you to vacation in my incredibly spacious, sunny, comfortable pond front home. This home overlooks Clear Pond, which is one of the many kettle ponds in Plymouth. The interior rooms are bright and there is a waterview from every room. Enjoy stunning sunrises over the pond, take a paddle in the canoe, a swim or just sit on the deck with coffee or a beverage. No motororized watercraft are allowed on the pond to disturb your peace. This house is designed for relaxation and entertaining.

Terrific First Class Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

I, like many, can be extremely apprehensive about reserving on the internet and sending money to a completely unknown person. However, after a few calls and emails with Terry, I reserved a time and mailed her the complete amount as agreed. I was not and I am not disappointed in the least—Terry, bent over backwards to work with us! She was prompt at getting back to me and worked diligently to answer all questions and worked to resolve any doubts or problems I may have had. Her house is great! We had eight folks for Sat night Lobster/Clam dinner and her kitchen was perfect! We all shared the moment sitting around her kitchen table making family memories. It is out of the hustle and bustle of the beach scene but just +/- 10 minutes away from it. The pond the house is on is a pristine little pond, clear water and no motor boats. There is a canoe at the water’s edge which translates into a calming paddling experience. I recommend this lady to everyone! Her home is just what she presented it to be! A great place to get together with friends or family and enjoy their company!

Good Location

  • 4 of 5

We had great day trips from the house - hiking at World's End near Boston, exploring the Cape and bike trails, Ellisville Harbor State Park, kayaking in Buzzard's Bay, swimming at Scusset Beach, witnessing an amazing sunset at Sandy Neck, and of course, wandering Plymouth. In the evenings we were able to enjoy the quiet house on the pond - lots of cooking in the kitchen with dinners on the deck and sometimes relaxing in front of the TV. The house has fun and interesting decorations, and the owner is responsive to questions/comments.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This home was the perfect location for a MA vacation. We were close to Cape Cod, Boston and loved Plymouth Harbor! The house was very comfortable for our family of 5. We loved the pond and we fished at least five days of our stay and even used the canoe. The house had plenty of brochures for things to do and even suggestions from the owner. Great week and we would highly recommend this home!

Pristine New England

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Plymouth, and we will remember this home for its beautiful setting on a picturesque New England pond. The home is comfortable and inviting, and has a very nice downstairs family room that allowed our family to interact in a way that we could never get from staying in a hotel. The location was perfect for day trips to Martha's Vineyard, Newport, Rhode Island, Salem, and central Boston. I recommend this home for anyone wanting to experience the beautiful New England countryside, yet remain convenient to interesting destinations.

Awesome Location with Amenities Galore!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this location in Plymouth. The house was very spacious and welcoming to our family. Our kids loved canoeing on the pond! The kitchen was huge, and we appreciated all of the extra’s that were provided by the owner. In the evenings, our family took great advantage of the huge collections of DVD’s that were provided. One of the biggest benefits of staying at this house was the location. During our week, we were able to visit the sites in Boston, Salem, Gloucester, along with enjoying different beaches throughout Cape Cod. The travel pamphlets and books that were provided by the owner made it very easy to navigate, and were helpful in our site seeing. We would definitely stay here again in the future.
