Where to Stay in Plymouth Massachusetts Home Town USA

where to stay in Plymouth MA

Plymouth is a coastal town located only an hour south of the Boston airport and a half hour north of Cape Cod.  One of the oldest European settlements in the US, Plymouth Rock is where the pilgrims who traveled across the Atlantic on the Mayflower landed.  Today it’s a small town where visitors from all around the globe come to enjoy historical sites, well preserved Native American history, boating, whale watching, fishing, the beach and so much more.

After spending a stormy afternoon exploring Cape Cod I arrived early in the evening to a two story old fashioned hotel.  A variety of planters with colorful seasonal flowers; bright ruffled carnations, tall delphiniums and an assortment of daisies made a beautiful contrast against the brick facade and white trim of the building.  Right off the water and a short distance from the bustling town it felt very private.  Upon entering The Plimoth Sands Hotel on Long Beach I was greeted with a very warm welcome from friendly employees wearing casual uniforms which corresponded with the relaxed vibe of the ocean front hotel.  It felt like I had gone back in time to a place that exists on 70’s television shows where strangers treat you like family.  This is home town America.

The first thing I did was drop off my bags and although the decor is old fashioned the room was huge and very clean.  There was more than enough room to stretch and unwind.  As soon as I noticed the rain clouds dissipating I headed to the outdoor deck.

There’s a cozy lounge area with comfortable seating, games and even a book shelf and a view of the indoor pool and Jacuzzi.  I stopped at the cafe bar and ordered their specialty drink called a kiss on long beach.  It was fruity and tasty.

 

I stepped onto the outdoor deck to a most spectacular view.  The storm clouds moved inland and the sky put on a show blending the loveliest pink and blue hues.  The water was calm, gentle and its sounds relaxing.  I watched the tides change from high to low.  Slowly then suddenly a pebbled beach appeared.  Perfect for an evening stroll.  As you can see from the photo this place has its own beach which stretches all the way to the public beach.

 I spent a peaceful and relaxing evening listening to the waves and watching the fog roll in.

The next morning we were able to enjoy the beach.
