Why robin chose Plymouth
Plymouth is history. Plymouth is an important part of America's beginnings. Sometimes you have to look closely to see this history under centuries of urban progress. For example, an impressive mansion hiding under modern "upgrades" and made into offices...a textile mill mostly removed, and now retrofitted as Isaacs Restaurant. And this newly renovated luxury guesthouse built as a carriage house in the 1830s, made into a home in 1920, and surviving until now to be reimagined (and almost totally rebuilt) as an exciting luxury Guest House.
What makes this House unique
Walk to historic downtown Plymouth's attractions -2 blocks to whale watch boats and harbor, 4 blocks to Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower II (currently in dry dock in Mystic, Conn, but returning in 2020), 3 blocks to Brewster Gardens and its lovely park and stream. Walk to restaurants, museums, art galleries, coffee shops and boutiques, antique malls and fancy clothiers: Setting the Space, the Exchange, Blue Blinds Bakery, Plymouth Center for the Arts, monuments, statues, gardens, souvenirs shops, pubs, lobster and clam shacks, gourmet food, a new "gastro pub called The Tasty, and much more that you'll find when you enjoy this lovely, lively town.

Can't say enough about this house. Everything you could possibly need is there. Great Location. You can walk to everything. Beautifully decorated and so much room. Can't wait to rent from Robin again! Thank you for a wonderful week.
Beautiful House in downtown
Our family of 5 and small dog really enjoyed our stay in this beautifully restored home. Beds are comfy and the kitchen is gorgeous. We walked everywhere from the house and found it convenient. Even the neighbors were all super friendly. 5 stars and A+ thanks to Robyn who was a joy to work with.
EXCEPTIONAL...I need more stars!!
We stayed at the Carriage House to have a quiet place for the bride and bridal party to get ready for our daughters wedding. Everything couldn't have been more perfect. This home is beautiful and so wonderfully decorated. It's clean, so spacious and so accommodating with so many amenities. I can only imagine how much we would have used the front porch if it was warmer weather.
The location is the best with walking distance to so many restaurants, shops etc.
Robin was outstanding and so attentive to our inquiries and requests.
I cannot say enough about this truly "charming" home which in a word was "perfect" in every way. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Love this house
This house was perfect for our family. We had our 2 kids, their grandparents and Aunt ... 7 people total and everyone was able to have their own space. The house is historic but with modern updates inside and all the conveniences to make traveling easy. Walking distance to downtown Plymouth. We would stay here again for sure.
Wonderful property, well appointed in great location.
This carriage house has everything you need for a delightful stay in Plymouth. The home is close to the waterfront, Plymouth Rock and many restaurants as well as landmarks throughout the town. There are many seating options inside as well as outside and the kitchen is a chef's dream. Each bedroom and bathroom is comfortable with perfect comfort mattresses and great absorbent towels.
A must stay for this area.
Fabulous Updated Antique in the Heart of Downtown Plymouth
Having grown up in Plymouth before relocating to the Midwest nearly a decade ago, our family of 6 have become connoisseurs of the vacation rental property market on the South Shore and Cape Cod. The Carriage House quickly became one of our favorite places -
everyone from the visiting grandmothers to the teenagers on their iPhones were utterly charmed by it.
The home is absolutely LOVELY, and the period detail from room to room will thrill you, but the modern amenities tucked in seamlessly will amaze you even more. Robin's knack for placing exactly what you need, exactly where you'll need it will remind you how wonderful a warm welcome by a gracious host feels.
I can't imagine a better location for seeing Plymouth, especially for one of Plymouth's big parades - Thanksgiving would be a marvelous time to be here! Cocoa or hot cider in steaming mugs on the porch with the kids running down the sidewalk to see the parade pass by? It would be like living in a Norman Rockwell painting!
The house has one fantastic bedroom suite on the first floor, great for anyone who can't do stairs. The other 3 bedrooms (one en suite) are on the 2nd floor. FYI, there are two sets of stairs in the home; the front stairs have a carpet runner and the back stairs do not. There is a baby gate which we used to block off the back stairs so our 4 year old wouldn't try to sneak down them at night and inadvertently slip and fall. (Q. How many summer vacations would I have sold my rental car for a baby gate in the middle of the night to stop a toddler from escaping some room or another? A. All of them!) There is also a high quality crib (not the kind of cheap porta-crib you get at a hotel) which we did not need but were very impressed to see on hand.
I imagine that families and friends of most ages and stages would find the Carriage House welcoming and enjoyable for a stay of any length, and we hope we are able to return.
Thank you for the kind words. We take our 100% 5-star review status very seriously and understand that some people will not give 5 stars except in the rarest, most sublime, out-of-this-world experience. We appreciate this guest's glowing comments: "The home is absolutely LOVELY" –– "period detail from room to room will thrill you" –– "the modern amenities tucked in seamlessly will amaze you even more" –– "exactly what you need, exactly where you'll need it" –– "how wonderful a warm welcome by a gracious host feels" ––"I can't imagine a better location" –– "The house has a fantastic bedroom suite on the first floor" This owner is puzzled at the tepid 4-star rating, which gives the impression we could have done more at this 5-star home. "Updated" hardly begins to tell of our massive and costly renovation, most rooms gutted to the studs to allow for the recreation of a totally new home inside an antique frame (and recreated outside, too.) Two gorgeous queen suites, 2 more comfortable bedoorms, 3 full subway tile shower bathrooms with granite vanities, grohe faucets, plus a powder room (so nobody can be inconvenienced.) Upper queen suite includes coffee/wet bar/vanity for a late morning sleep in with coffee. Where do you find a gourmet kitchen with 48" Wolf Range, huge Pro Hood, SubZero refrigerator and Diswasher Drawers? Central air conditioning, gleaming wood floors, elegant wool carpets, quality bed linen and mountains of fluffy towels? New Electrolux digital laundry with laundry supplies. Full sized soaps at every shower and faucet. Ample everything. During construction, entire rooms were removed to give lofty spaces with beautiful daylight. Yes, it is "Updated" as our guest noticed – to say the least. And to quote our guest, they were "UTTERLY CHARMED BY IT." All other guests gave us 5 stars, and we are eager to hear how we can win our 5th star from this "connoisseur of vacation rentals on the South Shore/Cape Cod."
POINTER PUTS THIS HOUSE TOO FAR BACK FROM WATERFRONT... IT IS ACTUALLY 1 BLOCK CLOSER
