Our favorite B & B

4.8 on September 10, 2013

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.

The place to stay in Plymouth

5 on July 21, 2013

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!

By the Sea - PERFECT B&B

5 on September 21, 2011

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.

Perfect getaway

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!

By the Sea - a wonderful B&B

5 on May 29, 2009

Brenda and Roger were wonderful hosts and provided great travel suggestions and to make sure our visit was perfect. The B&B is located right on the waterfront in historic Plymouth and it was a lovely place to stay with all the amenities - even prettier than the pictures! We could not believe our good luck, as it was by far the nicest place in Plymouth, which is the perfect jumping off point for Boston, Cape Cod, Newport and more! Everything is very close! We cannot say enough good things - you must see it for yourself! Thank you, Brenda and Roger! We will be back as soon as possible!

As you marvel at the exterior of the building, you are even more in awe at the impeccable beauty and neatness of the interior with all the knickknacks, antiques and design and then there is the breathtaking view of the harbor. When you meet Roger & Brenda you feel as though you've known them your whole life. They treat you as family members. Roger & Brenda Thank you for your hospitality Ken & Sue
