LUXURY in a 330 year old house? Yes, and central air conditioning and Sub Zero refrigerators.

Step back in time -- but with Sub Zero refrigerators and exquisite bathrooms. Here is a home of history, character, and style from our country's earliest period, a home belonging to settlers who arrived shortly after the Mayflower landed. It features hand-hewn beams, hand-cut planks, 330+ year old joists made of tree trunks. Its king posts were harvested from forests growing in the Middle Ages. Experience the past, but with exquisite comfort in this charming house built in 1684 as a mill stream cottage and counting house. You'll enjoy authentic, lovingly-preserved rooms, tasteful New England decor where you can play Pilgrim but grab a drink while lounging beside the waterfall. And where else can you walk from your front door to a whale watch boat, museums, boutiques, restaurants, antique stores, or explore the Grist Mill to grind some corn for your breakfast muffins? You can spend the day at the ocean beach (depending on availability, we can provide beach privileges at another of our houses). Downtown Plymouth is a rich destination for an exciting selection of food -- fresh seafood, gourmet Italian, lobster in the rough, homespun cafes, taverns, coffee shops, and sports bars.

If you've ever toured a ''First Period'' house-museum and thought, ''It would be incredible to be able to stay here,'' we now offer this antique mill-house residence, one of the first dwellings in America. Part of the house was the counting house for measuring out corn to be ground in the grist mill that bestrides Town Brook. Peek into the storage under the stairs to see wallpaper layers from 1800. Lovers of early framing will respond to the king posts, summer beams, floor boards cut from the biggest King's Grant trees, and 4 colonial fireplaces. And especially restorative is the view overlooking the mill, gardens, springs, and rushing stream and waterfall.

In this incredible Antique Mill-Stream Cottage, you'll find comfortable beds, wing chairs, leather topped writing desk, hand loomed coverlets, smooth sheets, down blankets and fluffy towels. The house retains a picturesque antique look with electrified oil lamps, handmade carpets, and wavy window glass. (Some of the 17th-century ceilings are low by today's standards. Please contact us if you have taller travelers or other considerations.) Don't worry, the kitchen offers you quality appliances and two Sub Zero refrigerators, thoughtfully hidden behind wood panels. Bathrooms and powder room are fresh and stylish, newly renovated but full of charm (it's hard to fathom what a 1684 bathroom would be like.) Our favorite is the powder room under the stairs where you'll be surrounded by the coolest of bathroom amenities and by 330-year-old beams and posts, some with their original tree bark on them. The Keeping Room has an impressive paneled fireplace and the master bedroom features majestic hand-planed raised panels from the 1720s. (With respect to the historic nature of the house, we ask that no fires burn in the fireplaces, however.)

Just outside your kitchen doors, step out to a brick barbecue patio that sits on the main massive stone wall, with awning overhead. Down stone steps you'll find a small garden with Adirondack chairs for taking in the verdant view. You can venture along our private winding boardwalk path to the rush and roar of the Mill Stream waterfall (in May, alewife climb the fish ladders to the ponds above the grist mill). Sitting by the waterfall, you will want to jot some notes in your diary or enjoy back-in-time books like ''Mayflower'' or ''Moby Dick'' while sipping your tea or heartier beverage and watching songbirds dart overhead.

You are just steps away from the Plymouth waterfront with whale watch boats, a summer ferry to Provincetown, great seafood, shops, and entertainment. One recent guest said this: ''We had such a great time staying in this historic house. Everywhere we turned was an eventful discovery. My 14-year-old daughter was 'mystified''(we guess that means 'intrigued') by everything the house had to offer. We loved the grist mill behind the house.'' Another said, ''The house has been meticulously maintained and restored, with antiques and period furnishings throughout. Each room is an absolute pleasure, not only for the incredible 17th century woodwork, but also the furnishings, which all have beautiful natural textures, warm neutral hues, and rich antique bronze.... This is not just a place to stay. It's a place to experience. We loved this 17th century home with hidden modern luxuries.''

Absolute PERFECTION!!

What an incredible property! A warm, beautiful, historic home and in a fantastic location. Walking distance to everything and just a short drive to Boston and Cape Cod towns and beaches. The hosts were thoughtful, wonderful and totally available. We had *everything* we needed and then some. Just show up and ENJOY. It's a very special place. Every morning and evening we would enjoy a meal, conversation and a board game in the cozy kitchen. We would LOVE to come back and stay again (and again!). They have other properties that we will definitely check out in the future. show more show less

Historic gem

This property was the perfect home base for our week long history field trip. We were able to walk to everything in Plymouth and other trips (like Boston) were just a short drive away. Robin was an amazing host and very accessible when we needed her. We were comfortable and relaxed throughout our trip. (I even got away to the spa across the street one day!) definitely recommend this historic gem!
