Recent Plymouth vacation rental reviews

This was an absolutely marvelous stay. Every little detail was thought of, and the place was completely clean-- spotless even. It's obvious it was recently redone, and everything is in excellent condition. We spent every afternoon on the dock. We brought all our food with us, and just hunkered down at the house for our entire stay. It looks just like the photos. We would happily visit again. The only thing I'd note is that this house has a fair amount of stairs to get down to the dock. Nothing we couldn't handle, but there isn't a railing for the stone stair portion, which may be an issue for anyone with mobility challenges. But honestly, for our family, it was perfect.

We love the ocean view from the patio and the big wraparound porch had wonderful big windows. The living room was comfortable and a nice place to relax. The bedrooms are also nice with comfortable beds. The bathrooms were OK with the upstairs bathroom being rather tight. Access to the beach is difficult. We chose not to do any laundry, but didn’t see a way to get down to the basement anyway. For property management, the kitchen was really disorganized. Parts of it were clean, but some cupboards and drawers were gross and disorganized. I did find mouse droppings in the drawers where eating utensils were. It seems there’s a mouse problem I could hear them scurrying around in the walls around the toilet especially between the shower and the toilet. This is something that should be taken care of. Thank you for allowing us to give you our input. Jo P.

My family loved staying here, with access to a private beach, seeing the tides, and watching seals everyday. We began our day watching the sun rise, and listening to the waves. The location can't be beat. But some things were not ideal. Access to the house is not easy, our mini van made it in dry weather. Narrow road that is not paved, with growth on both sides of the road. It is an older house, with very small bathrooms, and no dishwasher. The kitchen utensils could be cleaner. There were not enough knives for a family of 4. We would have liked a cleaner and organized kitchen. It wasn't stocked with basic supplies as well, like oil, food storage stuff etc. Just for the location, I would come back.

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!
