Stayed here Sept. 6-10 to visit my brother and his wife who live in Pembroke. We loved this home and was everything we expected and more. Brenda and Roger's hospitality was superb. They were accommodating to all of our needs. Convenient location as we went on a whale watching tour and just had to cross the street to board the boat. When we arrived back at their home Brenda had fresh cookies in our room. Just what I needed as I was starving. Close to great restaurants all in walking distance. Thank you Brenda and Roger for a wonderful stay.

We stayed August 2010. Found Brenda and Roger great hosts. Loved to just sit on the porch in the evening. I brought my road bike and would ride early in the morning (5am). I was surprised that our hosts would leave coffee cake and coffee out for me to have before my morning ride. Also Roger gave me the combination to the garage so I could retrieve my bike from it's secure place. The next time we visit we hope to rent the Harbor Room with the view of the harbor. Take our bikes over to Martha's Vinyard to sightsee.

I have to admit this is the first time I have stayed at a B&B. The home is beautiful and is perfectly situated to offer the best of convenience for anyone wanting to explore the town of Plymouth. We stayed in the Mayflower Suite and the views truly are spectacular. You can lie in bed and have a panaramic view of the harbor without leaving your pillow! Roger and Brenda were very welcoming and inviting without ever being intrusive, as if they were born to run an Inn. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

When we arrived in Plymouth, we parked across from your home and I noticed immediately your vacancy sign. I mentioned to my husband how neat it would be to stay in such a beautiful place over looking the Pilgrims first landing in America. Mark did some checking, we abandoned our other plans for the night, and stayed in your lovely home!

If you only experience one B&B in your life, visit this perfectly charming property. Brenda and her husband are the epitome of innkeepers! We felt like we were visiting a favorite aunt and uncle – they were warm, attentive, and gracious hosts. Staying at this perfectly placed property, we were within walking distance to the Mayflower, Plymouth Rock, and delightful places to shop / eat. Their house is the only house you can see the Mayflower from the rooms. We understand why they are always booked! For a weekend get-away or a wonderful alternative to big-city Boston, choose By the Sea. You enter as guests, and leave as friends.

My husband and I visited Plymouth in July, 2010. We found By the Sea B&B on a lark. It was such a wonderful surprise for us. We had just planned to stay one night, but loved it so much we decided to stay for two. We loved every moment of our stay there. Roger and Brenda are fabulous hosts - the most delightful people. If we are ever in the area again, we will most definitely go back to By the Sea if at all possible.

My husband and I are seasoned B&B'ers, and we found this place very charming, engaging, the owners went above and beyond making us comfortable, providing us with all kinds of insider tips to have a great time. It's within walking distance of the major attractions, the rooms are incredibly cozy. Great stay!

We have enjoyed restoring and decorating our "dream" home. We love to hunt for antiques, be outdoors, and help visitors have a great vacation in America's hometown. We especially enjoy our front porch where we can sit and take in the majestic views.
