Recent Plymouth vacation rental reviews

Me and my family really loved to stay at the house it was really convenient for all the places is very family friendly it was very clean
JAVIER H. | Jun 2022
This home was absolutely adorable with lots of charm! The location was fantastic as well, as we were able to walk everywhere!
Jennifer T. | Jun 2022
We completely enjoyed our stay here. The house was comfortable, clean, well-appointed, had fast Internet, and felt like being at home. A great location on a quiet street, it is within walking distance on downtown Plymouth, and a short walk to the Plymouth Bay with lots of great stores and restaurants. We plan to stay here again – and would recommend it to anyone. The communications with the property manager was excellent. One caveat it is a two-story house, and the stairs were fine for us, but could be a bit challenging for someone with mobility issues.

As the commercial and tourism hub of the South Shore, the city sees millions of visitors annually, especially in the weeks surrounding Thanksgiving. Our Plymouth vacation rentals offer a great place to relax and unwind in this historically significant Massachusetts city.

Things to Do in Plymouth, MA

Plymouth affords visitors a wealth of sites of historic and national significance. More than a million visitors a year head to Plymouth Rock. Situated in Pilgrim Memorial State Park, the rock is believed to be the spot at which the pilgrims first stepped foot on American soil. The Mayflower II is an exact replica of the original Mayflower and is just steps from Plymouth Rock. The park is also home to the National Monument to the Forefathers, an 81-foot granite slab celebrating the Pilgrims' voyage. 

Head to Plimouth Plantation for recreations of the original settlement and a 17th-century Native American village as well as a barn with rare animals and a grist mill. For the morbidly inclined, take a trip to Cole's Hill, which overlooks the harbor and town. Here you'll find a sarcophagus enveloping the bones of more than 50 Pilgrims who died in the harsh winter of 1620. 

Founded in 1824, Pilgrim Hall Museum tells the story of the Pilgrims and the Plymouth colony and is the oldest continually operating museum in the country. The Richard Sparrow House is the oldest house in town, having been built in 1640, and is now home to a pottery studio. The Jabez Howland House is one of the few in town that an actual Pilgrim called home. Ask a docent to take you on a tour of the two-story wood frame building's cozy interior. 

Parting Ways features the graves of four African-Americans of different stations who fought in the War of Independence; the 94-acre site commemorates the sacrifice and positive contributions of African-Americans in the Revolutionary War. The Mayflower House Museum celebrates the 102 Pilgrims and their millions of descendants around the globe.

The city is not just historic homes and museums. There's plenty of green spaces, too. The Brewster Gardens evoke classic English gardens of old and is a popular location for bridal shoots. Myles Standish State Forest affords guests five camping areas near 16 ponds, a section for horse camping and a pond specifically for swimming or canoeing. Beachcombers will love Ellisville Harbor State Park because of its barrier beach, but anyone interested in fresh air and cool breezes will enjoy the sphagnum bog, flower-laden meadows, and pine forest.

Plymouth has a number of cultural institutions as well, the most notable of which is the Plymouth Center for the Arts. Take a class or enter your photograph for a chance to be showcased.  

Day Trips from Plymouth

With its location on the South Shore, Plymouth is near most of the popular vacation spots in the state. Bustling Boston's sporting venues, rich culture, and colleges lie just 40 miles to the north. Spooky Salem is less than 70 miles away and is a hotspot every Halloween. The towns of Sandwich, Dennis, Yarmouth, and Falmouth are less than an hour away and offer a wealth of dining, shopping, and recreational opportunities.

Cape Cod and all its coastal splendor is worthy of a day trip, whether to gay-friendly Provincetown or charming Chatham. Hyannis is a great point to head onto the ferry to nearby Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. 

If you're a Revolutionary War buff or a fan of early American history, Plymouth is the perfect getaway—and our Plymouth vacation rentals can't be beat!
