About this listing

Enjoy a fun and relaxing stay in Kingston, with easy access to Plymouth Center, Boston & Cape Cod. Our cottage has a large back yard with a gas grill, patio for outdoor dining, an area for lounging & an outdoor shower. See our 100+ five-star reviews!

The space

No need to wrestle with Cape traffic this season. Enjoy our delightful summer cottage for a classic New England beach vacation less than an hour from Boston. This 500-square foot home has one bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a living room couch that pulls out to a queen-sized bed. Due to the small size of the cottage, we only accept reservations for a maximum of two adults and two children. The large fenced-in yard has a shaded canopy area for relaxing and a patio for grilling and dining. The newly renovated kitchen comes complete with cooking implements, gas range, fridge, microwave, coffee maker and stools to complete the cheerful scene. An extensive bathroom renovation with new vanity, tiled floor and toilet was completed in 2014, along with the addition of an outdoor shower. This idyllic neighborhood is perfect for walking and biking and even has daily visits from the local ice cream truck!

Please check out the AirBnB "guidebook" we've assembled to the right of our headline. It showcases many of the attractions within just a couple of miles of the cottage -great restaurants, movies, conservation land, a salon, two massage studios and lots of other interesting places.

From the end of June through mid-September, you can take advantage of an express non-stop ferry ride to world famous Provincetown at the very tip of Cape Cod. It cost $43 round trip, for an extra $5, you can bring your bike! Drinks and snacks available on board. It leaves Plymouth at 10:00 am and arrives in P-town at 11:30. At 4:30 it leaves P-town and arrives back in Plymouth at 6:00. Just in time for dinner at any one of the dozens of restaurants downtown.

This cottage is located in the Rocky Nook area of Kingston, a quiet, friendly neighborhood with access for renters and owners of Rocky Nook homes to beautiful Duxbury Bay and the private neighborhood beach. It's less than a 5 minute drive from exit 9 on route 3. The area is very close to the downtowns of both Kingston and Plymouth centers. Court Street in Plymouth is a great place to visit with dozens of charming shops and restaurants. If you like antiques and history, Plymouth center is the place for you. Plymouth Rock, Plimoth Plantation and the Mayflower II are always worth visiting and the fishing in Plymouth is rated among the best in New England! The Independence Mall with a deluxe 14-screen movie theater (and a Target!) is also only a mile and a half away. And for any last-minute, middle of the night cravings, there's a deluxe Walmart with a full grocery section that's open 24 hours in Plymouth.

What an amazing, cute little home! It is as great in person as it is in the pictures too. It was so nice to have a place to sit in the backyard and read in the mornings, and to take the incredibly short walk to the beach every day. The place was warm, cozy and inviting - perfect for a couple. We highly recommend Susan and Mike's place - what great hosts and a great home!

Cute spot perfect for a stay on the South Shore! Great point for day trips around the region and walks along the coast. Excellent communication with Susan & Mike made settling in very easy.

My best friend and I stayed at this beautiful cottage this past memorial day weekend. It was just the right size and came stocked with everything we could need. The backyard was so peaceful and the decor in and around the house was on point. I would definetly stay here again.

This was our second stay at the cottage. We were so happy to come back. We enjoyed the yard and cottage just as much as the first visit last year. No surprises, great fun. My first review still stands from last September!

Susan & Mike User ProfileSusan & Mike is a superhost.

I live in Boston where I'm a licensed social worker with low-income youth and families. I'm also a registered yoga teacher and I incorporate yoga techniques into my work. Two years ago, I started a non-profit service called Hands to Heart Center - Yoga for the People. We provide free yoga classes for people living with poverty and trauma in Boston. My job is pretty stressful and the Kingston cottage is my antidote and my escape.

My brother Michael is a professional photographer. He mainly shoots for a local research university and other higher-ed clients. He lives closer to the cottage and will respond immediately to any problems you encounter as our guest. I'm the decorator and he's the handy-man and our mother is the one to thank for the beautiful gardens - she has the green thumb in the family.

I bought the cottage a few years ago and have been renovating and improving it little by little (one of my favorite additions is the outdoor shower). I'm excited about finally perfecting it and being able to host friends and AirBnB guests. I've been very fortunate to have had wonderful guests who made themselves at home at our cottage and who I am hoping to see for return visits.

We've tried to anticipate our guests' needs and to provide a really comfortable, enjoyable experience. Our reviews show that we've been successful in this goal and we hope you agree.
