My husband and I stayed at Above the Bay in August 2014. Our host, Sandy, was gracious, warm, and helpful. Our room and bath were just fine, both clean, the bedroom charming, the bed comfortable. We would stay there again.

My fiancé and I made a last minute decision to find a B&B for NYE... we didn't think we would find something so last minute, but we did. Sandy had a room available, and was accommodating on our arrival time as well. There is designated parking behind the house, with a separate entrance with code entry for after-hours. The room...

My Wife and I just got home from our vacation from NY, to Vermont, to this charming B&B in Plymouth. We arrived Thursday evening, departed Saturday Morning. Wish our stay could have been longer, however, it wasn't possible. The Inn Keeper Sandy, was amazingly generously nice, and warm and welcoming to my wife and I. She shared her history of... More

We arrived with our 2 kids for a weekend in Plymouth. Sandy had us stay on the entire 3rd floor, which provided a king bed (for my husband and myself), a queen bed (for my daughter) and a separate twin bed in a little alcove, by itself (for my son). We had a bathroom that we shared. It was perfect... More

What a wonderful 4 night stay at this b&b - it had everything we could have hoped for. Sandy was an excellent host and helped us to plan our stay with useful advice and great to chat with Ron about his time back in Liverpool many years ago. The room had a fantastic view out to sea and was spacious,... More

A really lovely home with a charming and friendly hostess who ensured she gave us as much information as possible to make our stay thoroughly enjoyable. Sandy's breakfast table was a sight to behold every morning - dressed for autumn and Thanksgiving at the time we were there, it was particularly attractive and was slightly different every morning. The seating... More

My two daughters, one daughter's significant other and myself stayed on the third floor of Thornton Adams for a three night weekend to attend my mother's memorial service in Plymouth. We were all grateful to have chosen this beautifully maintained B&B rather than a standard hotel since we all felt nurtured and supported by Sandy. The rooms were comfortable and... More

Wonderful place to stay in Plymouth. Booked 4 nights early September 2014 and a good base to explore the Cape. Sandy is a magnificent host and really made us feel at home. Elegant and spacious room and great breakfasts set us up for the day. Sandy was also very helpful regarding information about the local area and pointing out good... More

Sandy was very helpful with local information and restaurant options. The bed was very comfortable and the room clean and tastefully furnished. The breakfasts were varied and nicely cooked. The place seems to be popular with international travelers; we met two German couples and a Scottish couple during our stay there.

I am a huge advocate and user of TripAdvisor and following the recommendations of others, booked a 2 night stay at the Above the Bay B&B. My wife and I greatly enjoyed our relaxing stay and cannot say enough positive comments about Sandy and the hospitality that was shown to us. The house is beautifully decorated, the room was very...
