You'll love the cozy charm of our historic tiny house locally known as 'The Doll House'. We're excited to open this treasure to you for a night, a weekend, or a week. Built in 1920, this house has been fully and lovingly restored to its former glory. It is tastefully decorated in period-appropriate furnishings - just enough room for you to enjoy the simple life of a tiny house. You'll be within walking distance to all of Plymouth's entertainment, restaurants and shops. You'll have everything you need - just bring your suitcase and groceries! The Doll House makes a perfect launching pad for your next vacation, business trip, or visit to nearby relatives or students at Plymouth State University or Holderness School.
The Doll House hosts two full bedrooms upstairs, one room with a full bed and one room with two twin beds. The living room, fully equipped kitchen and bath with shower are downstairs. In warmer months, enjoy the lovely screen porch, garden sitting and eating areas and a cute 'pocket park' across the street.
You'll have full access to the Doll House to come and go as you wish (though you might love it so much you won't 'go' very often)!
I have lived in Plymouth for 11 years after moving here from the beautiful Oregon Coast. My partner Steve is a second-generation Plymouth native. Between the two of us we have five kids and a growing crop of grandkids. We are involved in lots of community group and enjoy the connections we make traveling and by sharing our home with others. Between our kids, grandkids, rowing, community service, and gardening, we pack a lot of JOY into each day. We look forward to meeting you!

Local Michael and Linda B. lovingly restored this home over the past 9 years. It came time for them to find the Doll House a new owner and, as fate would have it, they found me. Or, perhaps, the Doll House found me? I am thrilled to be able to have the responsibility to take this home on to its 100th birthday and to make it available for you to enjoy. I think you will find that it is perfect - just big enough for your visit, quiet get-away, romantic escape, or longer stay.

Cottage is very clean and is as charming as advertised. The owner provides you with lots of little personal touches and anticipates your needs as well as providing you with up-to-date local information. A variety of good restaurants are within walking distance. I wish we could've stayed longer and we do plan on staying here again.
I absolutely LOVED the Doll House in Plymouth and would stay there again in a heartbeat. It was just as cute as the photos and had the cutest decorative touches inside. I stayed in cooler weather so did not get to enjoy the screened in porch or backyard seating areas. The small and cozy kitchen was sunny and bright and cheery and had everything I needed. The bedroom that I slept it was cute and the bed and pillows were comfortable! I found this place to be so inviting and friendly that I think my only regret is not staying for more than one night. I do want to add to my review that this is a TINY house. There's no question about that. I personally like small and cozy but I am a 5'1" female. If you were of a larger size then this is not the house for you. The stairs are also narrow and fairly steep so it was a little challenging to bring my heavy luggage upstairs. Small price to pay to enjoy such an adorable home though. I would highly recommend this home to anyone!
We had a very nice stay at the dollhouse! We just stayed a night for an anniversary getaway. It was nicely located to the center of town so we could walk to dinner and the ice cream parlor. Fun thrift store also. The diner we went to the next morning was also delicious. Highly recommend. The house is closely located to some houses belonging to Plymouth State College and walking to dinner was slightly awkward. It was Saturday around 4pm and the drinking had already started. Lots of young guys loitering on the lawns, beer cans all over the place. The whole street smelled like beer. I am only 36 but out of my college years and don't care for that whole scene at all. I guess it's to be expected being so close to the college, but if you walk to town, avoid Russell Street and walk down Warren instead. The dollhouse is secluded enough that the music playing in the neighborhood isn't disturbing. And it was good to see a strong police presence on patrol. We did stop at Tedeschi's for some milk and saw a kid get busted for trying to use a fake I.D. for beer. That was a first. Anyway, the house itself is a lot of fun, and was very comfortable. Love the cute little kitchen. And we found a flashlight that came in handy for our nighttime walk to the ice cream parlor. It had everything you could think of. We had a lot of fun reading the titles of the novels from the 40's on the bookshelf. We got a lot of laughs from the titles and subject matter of the times.
Lovely well appointed cozy home in easy walking distance to shops & dining. Only a short drive to The White Mountains and The Lakes. We came here for a wedding on Church Island and reception at the Common Man. Perfect central location although you may just want to sit out on the screened porch and enjoy the garden here. And thank you for accommodating our early arrival with such grace Susan.
Was looking for a place to get away from the hustle and bustle. A place to unwind. The 1920 was perfect. The porches on both the front and rear of the house were little havens. While on the front porch swing you could close your eyes and hear the babbling brook nearby. The trees surrounding the house made a canopy overhead that made the doll house even more inviting. The entire house was surrounded by manicured gardens with brick paths, a trellis and upon looking out one of the kitchen windows I notice a beautiful old pump inside the fenced garden on that side of the yard. The interior of the doll house was just as inviting as the exterior. The owner really thought of everything to make you feel like you you stepped into a doll house. It is close enough to the lovely town of Plymouth and yet far enough away with it's perfect location. Bring a favorite book or check out the bookcase in the living room and settle into a comfy chair and listen to the ticking of the clock in the living room. I was very happy that we chose to stay a few nights, one night certainly would only be a tease. The guest book is filled with heartfelt expressions of travelers stays from all corners of the globe. Why not be one of them?
FIRST OF ALL THE OWNER WAS VERY HOSPITABLE, FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. ALL MY NEEDS WERE TAKEN CARE OF AND IN A FRIENDLY MANNER. I RENTED THE HOUSE FOR A MONTH IN THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY. THE HOUSE HAS EVERYTHING THAT I NEEDED. WHILE I WAS THERE IN THE WINTER TIME, THE OUTDOORS WAS UNAVAILABLE TO ME DUE TO THE RAPIDLY CHANGING WEATHER, BUT THE DRIVEWAY WAS PLOWED QUICKLY. ICE WAS THE MAIN PROBLEM TO AND FROM THE HOUSE BUT WHO CAN PREDICT THE WEATHER CHANGES. THE BEDROOMS WERE COMFORTABLE AND CLOSET SPACE WAS ADEQUATE. I HAD A TRULY COMFORTABLE AND WARM BED AND THE BEDDING WAS CHANGES WEEKLY. THE DOWNSTAIRS WAS COMFORTABLE, GREAT LIGHTING AND GOOD SEATING ARRANGEMENTS. THE BATHROOM WHILE SMALL WAS PERFECT FOR MY NEEDS. THE KITCHEN HAD EVERY TOOL IMAGINABLE FOR PREPARING THE FEW MEALS THAT I COOKED THERE. I WOULD CERTAINLY ARRANGE TO STAY THERE IF I VENTURED ACROSS THE COUNTRY AGAIN TO SEE MY FAMILY. SO ENJOYED THE OWNER AND HER FRIENDLY ADVISE ABOUT THE HOUSE AND THE LOCAL ENVIRONMENT.
