spent one night at this B&B. Very relaxing and beautifully decorated. All the rooms were nice. We stayed in the Marni suite with the Jacuzzi tub. Had a nice view of the bay. Sandy is a great host. Loved the breakfast in the morning. I wish I could of stayed longer.

Just spent one night at Above the Bay. It's a great choice. Sandy, the owner, makes you feel right at home spending time chatting and giving suggestions for places to visit, restaurants, bakeries, etc. She knows the area well. When I called for reservations, she asked about food allergies and preferences. The room we had, Erin's Room, was exceedingly comfortable... More

The Thornton Adams house is gorgeous. Sandy was a warm, kind and very thoughtful hostess. We quickly felt right at home. We loved our pretty blue room at the top of the stairs. We had a great breakfast and really wished we could have stayed longer. We highly recommend.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at this delightful Bed and Breakfast. The room was decorated very tastefully and was adequately spacious. The location is ideal for getting to the historical sites that we went to Plymouth to visit. We were happy with their onsite parking as that can be a problem in Plymouth. The innkeeper Sandy... More

Every touch was so well done from the dining room table each morning to the beautiful... More

My husband and I really do have a preference for historic bed and breakfast inns; whereas this inn looks like it was built in the 1990s. The bedroom was okay; the bathroom was spacious. The breakfast was delicious, and more than ample. What makes this place special is the hostess, Sandy. She is a very caring and helpful person, who... More
