Tremendous Experience

5 on May 26, 2015

My wife and I went for a night to get away and we loved it. It is very comfortable and Kathy and Dennis go out of their way to help and make you feel at home. The breakfast was awesome! We will be recommending this place to our friends.

Fun in Plymouth

We were only able to stay one night, but wished we could have stayed more. We were in the Schooner Room which had a whimsical nautical theme in decor. The whole house was very clean and showed lots of TLC. Kathy and Dennis were so friendly and helpful with things to do in Plymouth. Kathy's breakfast was delicious! Among other tasties, there were fresh blueberry pancakes. YUM! And when we arrived, there were freshly baked brownies on the credenza! We will be coming back again when we are on the east coast.

Fantastic weekend

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Jesse Harlow House this past weekend. I chose to make my reservation here due to the friendliness and caring that Kathy showed during my initial phone call to get a quote on pricing. I had called many other locations and she was the only one I talked to that wanted to have a conversation instead of generically giving me numbers. Upon arrival she welcomed us in at the door and showed us around the house. When she said make yourself at home she meant it. She leaves you full range of the K-cup coffee and tea, provides cold drinks in the afternoon (homemade lemonade!), has a tray of snacks (brownies and baked goods), and even has a fridge with wine and beer – making sure you know it’s all up for grabs. The rooms were very clean and well kept. The breakfasts were not what you would call "traditional" such as eggs and bacon but were interesting (in a good way) and tasty. For example, the first day included grapefruit with toasted coconut, blueberry pancakes, sausage, and a salad (with candied nuts and cranberries). I would definitely stay here again and would recommend staying here to anyone who asked.

This B&B is located perfectly in Plymouth - a few minutes walk to Burial Hill, Plymouth Rock, etc., and a five minute drive will get you to Plimoth Plantation. Kathy greeted us warmly upon arrival and the room was spectacular - the Schooner room on the first floor has a private bath and a queen bed. Several locations in the B&B are readily available for relaxation - down by the koi pond, up on the deck overlooking the Jabez Howland House, or in the living room. The breakfasts were awesome - delicious and comfortably filling; my wife and I found that breakfast and a small snack in the afternoon (homemade cookies or brownies provided by Kathy) kept us going right until dinner. Kathy and Dennis are friendly and personable. Kathy gave us several recommendations, whether we wanted to go to a beach, a restaurant, or see historic locations. No amount of praise would be too much for this B&B.

One of the best Band Bs we have ever encountered!

We were delighted to stay with Kathy and Dennis, who were so welcoming, helpful and friendly.Their attention to detail was outstanding and breakfast was out of this world! We were given suggestions for places to eat and things to see in Plymouth and Boston. Kathy and Dennis even drove us to and from the station and bus stop and treated us to a special view of the cranberry bogs.We would happily recommend The Jesse Harlow House to anyone who appreciates friendly but respectful hosts, beautiful, comfortable surroundings and the most delicious breakfasts!

Best one night stay ever

Stayed one night after a wedding and would definely go back for longer stay! Greeted by Kathy and Dennis who were so friendly and welcoming. House was beautiful and the service and food were impeccable. Would definitely recommend this B&B to friends and family. Dennis and Kathy made us feel like family!,

Thoroughly enjoyed out stay!

This is a beautiful house that is well maintained. In the back it has a covered porch and a small sitting area with a coy pond. Wonderful after a day on the town to come back and relax. Couldn't ask for a better location, downtown is about 5 minutes away walking. If you walk just a few more blocks away you'll see Plymouth rock. Dennis and Kathy are great people! They made for an accommodating and enjoyable stay. Thank YOU!

Great Hosts!

Our stay was totally enjoyable! Dennis and Kathy could not have been more hospitable or entertaining. They helped with dinner reservations, and gave great touring advice for our first visit to Plymouth. They were continually doing all the things to make us feel like valued guests. The bed was very comfortable, everthing was clean, and little touches like a remote ceiling fan and snacks in the room were great. The rear deck and lower garden area were beautiful and were a unexpected benefit. Would definitely stay there again.

If this could have been better, I don't know how

We came from Vermont and stayed one night. Kathy and Dennis were cordial and immensely caring about our comfort in all ways. The room was delightful. Breakfast on the covered porch was an elongated pleasure. The only downside--staying just for one night!

You will be spoiled!!

This place is fantastic! Kathy and Dennis are some of the most warm and well-seasoned owners/hosts we have ever stayed with. They provide the perfect amount of interaction while still respecting your privacy. The house is decorated so tastefully and is very clean. Kathy and Dennis really complemented the history of the house with the decor. It was done just how I hoped an historic New England Sea-Port B&B would look. The food was amazing. Kathy really puts the extra effort into her meals and it shows; no boring old muffins and yogurt here! This place is a great alternative to staying in Boston too. Just take the train, its easy. I was traveling with my fiancé and my parents so there were four opinions of the stay and all were stelar. I'm already trying to figure out an excuse to go back! Be forewarned though, you will be spoiled and it might skew your opinions of any places you stay after. By the way, the complementary wine and homemade cookies were appreciated very much so but this is the first and only place I've ever been where I was offered a local beer! Yay
