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.

The owner, Sandy, really takes care of you here. Spacious and quaint rooms, personalized service, great ocean views, and fantastic breakfast all combine to make for a great stay. We have stayed here on multiple occasions and this B&B never fails to please.

This B&B is in a beautiful house that is tastefully decorated. The room was large with a large bathroom and lovely balcony overlooking a neat and tidy garden. It was quiet and extremely relaxing. The location is on the main road into Plymouth so quite good for getting to all the sights and restaurants that Plymouth has to offer. The... More

My husband and I stayed in "Erin's room" and were very pleased. This upstairs' room had a comfortable decor with a lighted canopy over the bed and a partial oceanview. Everything was fresh and clean, with a thoughtful mixture of old and new. Sandy herself has a delightful personality and adeptly caters to the requests of her guests. She thoroughly... More

We stayed in Above the Bay at Thornton Adams in mid-August. The inn keeper Sandy was a wonderful host. We could not secure our last day accommodation in the area due to a special event over the weekend. She helped us calling around and eventually got us a room in a place almost walking distance to the downtown. During our... More

We had a lovely 2 night stay here and enjoyed waking up to the ocean view. The breakfast was yummy and the town is very customer friendly. Sandy our host had discounted passes to Plimoth Plantation which was an added bonus. We would definitely return here.
