We decided to return back to Plymouth and Above the Bay a few weekends ago for a long weekend. We were welcomed back with opened arms. Sandy is a wonderful hostess and the inn is a very relaxing place to stay. It is just outside all the hustle and bustle but close enough for us to drive in and enjoy... More

My family and I spent the weekend in Plymouth to celebrate my father's 60th birthday. We planned ahead and reserved rooms at the Thornton Adams B&B. My family had stayed there the previous year for another family occasion and had spoken highly of the location. The location was very close to historic downtown plymouth. Not quite walking distance and a... More

My 2-day stay at Above the Bay was actually more than convenient & comfortable. Sandy is not only a gracious hostess, more than willing to consider each guest's needs/preferences, but also a great cook. Be sure to taste her cranberry and pear cakes, even if such treats are not your usual breakfast fare. "Cake" is a misnomer for these epicurean... More

Lovely house, gracious hostess with much local knowledge and helpful suggestions, tasty well prepared breakfast. Near town, beaches, walk and Plymouth Plantation, Only problem is that Madison the cute dog was clearly smarter than me.

Me and my boyfriend had the (unexpected, but that's another story!) pleasure of staying in the Marni suite for the night for my birthday/our 6 year anniversary. The room was spacious (walk in closet!) and bright. We almost didn't make it down for breakfast the next morning because it was just so wonderful waking up in the crisp sheets of... More

Had the pleasure of enjoying the Thornton Adams B&B a few weeks ago. Very hospitable and not too overbearing. Sandy was great with providing a relaxing atmosphere, that was clean, and convenient. I appreciated the discounts offered for the Plymouth plantation. A great savings. The food was tasty and plenty of it to go around. Never have I stayed at... More

Sandy is such a gracious host. Very welcoming and accommodating. She went all out. Her breakfasts were incredible. As noted, her breakfast "cakes" are the best. We were 3/4 of a mile to the beach and long peninsula where we watched sunset. We were only about 2 miles to town. If you're a runner, plenty of hills. Sandy is very... More

We stayed at Above the Bay for 4 nights this week and had a wonderful time. Sandy is an awesome cook and hostess. The breakfasts were outstanding, the room was very comfortable and the house very charming. Sandy was very helpful in sharing her knowledge of the regional sights to be seen, restaurants to eat at, even an artisan bakery... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent 3-day stay at the Thornton Adams B&B. The food, hospitality, convenience, and location were superb!. We will definitely stay there again when our travels bring us to the Plymouth area. The innkeeper, Sandy, was most helpful and flexible with our morning site-seeing and golfing schedules.

This B & B is absolutely lovely inside and out. The accommodations were superb, Sandy our hostess provided excellent suggestions for dinner and detailed info on Historic sites that should not be misssed! The breakfast in the morning was a first rate gourmet meal prepared by Sandy and beautifully presented at a lovely, elegant table. We were hesitant at first... More
