Wonderful townhouse in a perfect location!

"We spent several weeks in the townhouse and enjoyed every minute of it! The house has an abundance of period features and comes with a fully equipped kitchen and an amazing fireplace to gather around after dinner. We enjoyed the close proximity to a great range of restaurants, and a bit of street life just around the corner even though the house is on a quiet street. To top it off, Robin and John were the perfect hosts, making sure we had everything we needed throughout the stay. We would love to come back!" (M+M)
Thanks for that review! And yes, we understand. You need a hotel but want a home. You'd like a historic B+B, but don't want to have to rub elbows with Mr and Mrs Innkeeper at breakfast. You want privacy, a beautiful in-town stay, understated luxury and comfort, a classy kitchen with high-end appliances you may not even have at home. You want room to spread out, with space to sort through your maps, guidebooks, history books, cameras and coffee, checking email via WiFi. Comfortable bedrooms, new bathrooms with granite countertops in a yesteryear 'mansion' home you can rent like a hotel so your family can play tourist without getting stuck in a forlorn motel chain. Think of it as a London-style townhouse similar to one you would rent in Kensington to visit the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Here is a lovely note left by our guests from Great Britain, 'We knew instantly when we spotted Cushman Place on the VRBO website that it was exactly what we were looking for. However, on arrival we were even more impressed. Your extremely tasteful decor and furnishings made it an absolute delight to stay here in Plymouth. Add to that the location so close to the waterfront, restaurants, etc, and it was outstanding. Thank you so much for a fantastic rental; we will certainly tell all our friends about Cushman Place. With our thanks and best wishes'-- Steve and Jane L. UK.
Cushman Place Residence is an attached 2-story, 2.5 bedroom townhouse, divided many years ago from a 1900s grand Colonial Revival home located at the edge of the Historic District. Once part of a distinguished 6000 square foot manse which had a boxwood maze garden and servants galore, this private in-town 2 bedroom apartment (2 more bedrooms+bath available on 3rd floor, for small extra charge) Is a completely separate, private home with its own entrance and easy parking and back garden patio area with BBQ grill and extra parking. Cushman Place living room was the formal dining room of the original manse, with its finely detailed fireplace, crown mouldings and detailed wainscott. Beautiful quarter sawn oak wood floors, inspiring light from the large windows, delightful details, not the least of which is classy kitchen with SubZero refrigerator and Miele cooktop and Miele dishwasher, Bosch convection oven, honed granite countertops with an abundance of quality cookware and beautiful dishes and glassware ... quite a change from your conventional lodging. You'll find a powder room under the attractive staircase leading to second floor, where two gracious bedrooms (one with a view of the old garden) and a luxurious renovated bathroom, let couples, a family, a bridal party, or space-loving singles, sleep comfortably, then foray ambitiously into the exciting world of historic Plymouth, Cape Cod and the Islands.
We have now made available for rent a third-floor space, adding two distant-ocean-view bedrooms and old-timey bathroom with footed tub. This makes, for those who need 3 or 4 bedrooms suitable for extra guests and family. When only two bedrooms, plus 1.5 bathrooms is plenty of space for your stay, the door to the staircase leading to the 3rd floor remains locked and nobody occupies the 3rd floor at all.
One flight below the Townhouse dining room, you can toss a load of vacation laundry into the modern HE laundry, the new LG Tromm Steamwasher, and have visions of a by-gone day, where servants scampered about taking care of such mundane tasks such as undies and lunch.
You can rent for days or weeks, enjoying amenities we today consider 'necessities' in the privacy and comfort of home. Your own front door, just a short walk to the waterfront, Plymouth Rock, whale watching, historic sites, ships, antiques, boutiques and restaurants.
Recent guests from Nottingham noted 'This is really a separate home, isn't it? On the Internet it sounds like it is part of something else, but it really is a separate home.' Yes, I thought, and wondered if other guests are thinking it isn't. I decided to reiterate that.
Consider reserving Cushman Place as an alternative to a cramped hotel stay to see the historic sites, or if flying early into Boston or Providence for your Cape Cod vacation rental. In town too early to check into your vacation rental? We are here to jump start your vacation. As most waterfront vacation properties are on strict Saturday-to-Saturday, or Sunday-to-Sunday schedules, we wanted to be able to offer our incoming guests a refuge and opportunity to explore the area if their travel plans brought them to Cape Cod earlier than the check-in day. Cushman Place provides our incoming guests a place to rest, refresh, explore, and catch up with email.
Having a wedding? Brides will find this a lovely and convenient place for preparing for that special event. (High season, we tend toward full week rentals, rather than just a couple nights.)
We consider it an honor to be chosen as your vacation home, and we work diligently to see that your trust is rewarded beyond your expectations.
