Very nice stay. Clean, comfortable room with in-suite bath. The owner, Christine, was very pleasant. Breakfast was very nice, but not substantial. The baked grapefruit was delicious. Could have used some toast. Everyone eats at one table so it was interesting talking with the other guests. Wi-Fi signal was not very strong.

This is a beautiful B&B, extremely clean, great price and a nice location with ocean view. Christine the Inn keeper is sweet, professional and a great cook. She got us into a room last minute and was very helpful. The bed was super comfy and high. The room was very nicely decorated but pretty small, I suspect that was because... More

I don't normally take the time to write reviews however, my husband and I had the best experience this past weekend at Above the Bay Bed and Breakfast in Plymouth. The home, grounds, and interior are meticulous. Lots of charm and you just can't help unwinding upon arrival. The owner/cook/hostess, Christine, was professional yet easy to approach and great to...

Wow! Our first visit to Plymouth, so glad we found this place. Impeccably clean, perfect comfortable rooms, great hostess and amazing breakfast. The breakfast was creatively unique, fresh and hot both days. Much more than what we could have hoped for. Thank you for helping to make our first visit to Plymouth so special

We had mixed feelings on this stay of 3 nights. On the positive, very nice house, room was mostly quiet and with the provided white-noise machine we slept fine, top quality bedding, nice size room & bath, good location (short drive to attractions), very good breakfast though ran out of coffee one morning. On the negative, narrow check-in hours (4:30-6)... More
