What an amazing stay we had!!!!

This is a very charming well maintained home in walking distance to town. We absolutely loved it! The owners were amazing and we really felt well taken care of! I would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting more space than what a hotel room offers and also to experience some of the old world charm Plymouth has to offer. It's important to know that this charming home has been completely renovated and decorated in very excellent taste!

AWESOME

We had the best time. The carriage house was delightful, very clean, roomy, well stocked and we loved being within walking distance of down town. The owners themselves are grand people!!! We would all go again ---- and hope to one day. Gail, Deb, Janice and Ruth

Carriage House Christmas

Since all of our children would be celebrating Christmas this year with their in-laws, we decided to have our family's Christmas the week before and start the tradition of renting a house big enough to accommodate all of us in a cozy New England destination. Upon our arrival the cheerful yellow front door greeted us with a festive wreath and candles twinkled in every window. There was even a duralog in the basket by the fireplace, which I promptly lit while we decorated the tree that we had brought along. The house itself was gorgeous, spotless, and well stocked with everything we needed for a cozy Christmas. I will also say that the house is bigger in person than it appears in the pictures on line. There was plenty of room for us (7 adults, one toddler, and 2 small dogs) to really spread out. We cooked delicious meals in the beautiful kitchen, watched Christmas movies in the huge living room while the fire crackled. Played games, saw the historic sights, ate out, strolled around the downtown and just about fell into the comfy beds at night happy and exhausted from all of the fun. We even woke up on our "Christmas" morning to a gentle snow fall and the front walk and sidewalk had already been shoveled. Picture perfect! This was our first time renting a home on line and the experience was perfect from start to finish. Everything far exceeded my expectations and we will definitely be back to do this again. My only regret is that we didn't book for a longer stay. Thank you Robin for your hospitality!

PERFECTION IN PLYMOUTH AT THE CARRIAGE HOUSE!

Four of us; my 94-year-old mother, daughter and granddaughter and I converged on the Carriage House. To our surprise our first night in town was Plymouth’s Holiday open house, with beautifully trimmed windows, carolers, and a marathon through town. The Carriage House was a perfect refuge from the chill after our brisk cool walk through town over to the statute of Massasoit then down to Plymouth Rock. The colors, furnishings fireplace that greeted us were the makings of a Hollywood Holiday movie set. A fully stocked, spacious eat in gourmet kitchen served as a gathering spot, as local family members dropped by to say hello to the families Matriarch, my mother. We cooked, laughed, celebrated family and the Holiday throughout our stay. It was truly magical, and I am certain never to be duplicated. Robin, was kind and helpful throughout the entire process, extended courtesies to help me manage this cross-country trek with a wheelchair bound women. The first-floor bedroom was a God send. I was asked often why would we leave sunny California in December for Plymouth. It was because there is nothing like Plymouth in the winter. First; fewer tourists, more community, beautiful landscapes, (still got my fried clams with bellies thank you), and an authentic Holiday atmosphere. I loved it. I woke like a 10 year old, each morning. I’d jump out of bed pull up the shades and peer out looking for white powder outside. We got a bit of hale, which my daughter dubbed snow pellets, and so we counted it as snow…  All in all everything from making my reservations, to entry, departure and my stay were perfect. If you are looking at the Carriage House as a possibility for a stay in Plymouth, stop and go no further. This is the place you want to stay. I promise you will be satisfied. I loved it. Thank you, Robin,…

Pure Perfection!

Words can not begin to express how much my family and I enjoyed our stay in this charming house! We rented the Carriage house for my daughter's wedding. We wanted somewhere beautiful for her to get dressed in, take pictures and have her bridal party surround her for her big day. As soon as we walked in, it felt like HOME!! It was the perfect home in EVERY way! It was warm, inviting, beautiful furnished, immaculate and fully equipped with every detail. I wish there were more stars to rate this property! It is definitely a 5+++ rental!! Robin, the owner, is awesome to work with. She was very accommodating. She always answered all my questions and returned my calls and emails promptly. I had the pleasure of meeting her and she was as lovely and charming as I expected! I, of course, HIGHLY recommend this home and would love to return one day soon! Desiree C.

Family Friendly

The location, size and furnishings were perfect for our immediate family which came from three states for our son's wedding week. The neighborhood was quiet, but just a few minutes walk to the interesting downtown Plymouth shops and a wide variety of waterfront dining sites. It is a classy home with beautiful touches and was very comfortable and inviting. The home's details were endless and a lot of thought went into providing for all of one's needs and more. The pictures on the website gave a true description of the Carriage House.

Perfect Vacation Home

This home was the perfect place for our family to enjoy on our family vacation in July! The look and charm of the house is to die for. Robin did an excellent job decorating and everything was of top quality. The wrap around porch was the perfect spot for an early morning cup of coffee! The house was very clean, which is always very important! And the house was stocked with any extra necessities your house at home would have. The location was perfect, a nice stroll away from the heart of the Plymouth waterfront. This home allows dogs, it is always so wonderful when owners allow the renters to bring their pets and be included in the family vacation too! Robin was a great owner to rent from, very friendly, accommodating and a pleasure to communicate with. Will love to stay in one of Robin's rentals again in one of our future vacations!

Great get away

My family and I rented the house for a week as we were in town for a family wedding. The house is beautiful, warm and inviting. It is in a great location, easy walking distance to the wharf, Plymouth Rock and all the great restaurants. We had lots of activities planned but were happy to get back to the house, sit on the porch and pass the time talking. Robin is easy to work with and really helps to make this a home away from home.

Birthday Weekend

My sister and I recently spent a long weekend at this property. It was a birthday gift and It was a fantastic gift. This was the second property of Robin's that we have been able to stay in and once again, were so pleased. As soon we opened the door, we felt at home. The living room was a wonderful space, and a great room to relax in with a glass of wine with the fire crackling in the background. Actually we couldn't wait to get home after a day of activities, to do just that. The furnishings are so beautiful and charming, matching the era of the home perfectly. The kitchen with the impressive wolf range was a treat to be able to cook in. Definitely would love to stay here again.

Plymouth's Finest

I don't know where to begin. There was no part of this experience that wasn't absolutely exceptional! When I reached out to Robin to help me make arrangements she flooded me with great ideas. She was nothing but helpful! When I saw photos of the beautiful accomodations I fell in love. In person it was even better! Nothing but luxury everywhere! The great room was a large size and fit our group comfortably. The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed. The beds were so comfy we fell asleep as soon as our heads the pillow. The wrap around farmers porch was perfect for breakfast and for star gazing. Just a short walk away was famed Plymouth harbor with its cute shops and fine dining. Looking forward to returning very soon.

Highly recommended getaway in Plymouth

We have stayed in 5 star hotels or Timeshares over the years but this place felt like a true home. It's beautifully renovated with characters in a superb location. We were pleasantly surprised to see a fully stocked kitchen, very fine appliances, blooming garden with a wrap-around porch and even a baby gate/crib to accommodate our needs. The long weekend felt short while we stayed there and both kids now asked to go back. We are planning to book for the next summer...

Carriage House

What a wonderful house! Location is ideal, you are within walking distance of the beach, dining and lovely town of Plymouth.You can visit Boston, Cape Cod and Rhode Island from this location. We loved staying here, the house is very nice. Robin the owner was a lovely person to rent from.

A True Five Star Accommodation

Home is immaculately kept, beautifully furnished and with quality appliances. Location is ideal as it is within walking distance to many of the local tourist sights, dining and shopping within Plymouth yet still tucked away in a quiet neighborhood side street. Further, property is centrally located between Boston and Cape Cod should you want to explore beyond Plymouth just be sure to mind the high traffic times on Route 3. Beach chairs and towels are provided for when you want to hit the beach. Kitchen is nicely stocked with essentials such as spices, oil, vinegar, condiments, and of course, cookware. Owner is readily available as she generally resides just a few houses down yet provides guests with ample privacy so they may enjoy the peace and quiet that her rental property provides. Obviously, I would highly recommend this property to anyone seeking a true 5 star accommodation in or near Plymouth, MA.

Beautiful Cape Cod Home

We have been here three days with our children and grandchildren who range in age from 1 to 7. The house is roomy with plenty of bathrooms. Robin, who owns this home, couldn't be more accommodating. We needed a larger table in the kitchen, and one was delivered immediately. The decor here is very cheerful. There is plenty of space for us to sit around and talk. The bedrooms are spacious and attractively appointed. There is room to get off by yourself when you need a quiet moment. The appliances are very fine, a Subzero refrigerator and Wolf range. There are exquisite silk flowers arrangements throughout the home. There is tons to do in Plymouth. We spent the day at a waterpark today called Water Wizz. It was fabulous. Yesterday, we went to the Mayflower II, a replica of the Mayflower. We also toured a grist mill and saw Plymouth Rock. This house is walking distance from the beach, restaurants and shops. You really can't go wrong staying here
