This log house is beautiful. Only minutes from historic Plymouth, beaches and the Cape. On an acre of private, wooded property. Located across the street from lovely cranberry bogs and walking trails. Close to Boston and Providence. A must see! Pet friendly! Seasonal rates apply. Please be sure to check-out our 3 summer boat listings located about 25 minutes from the log house! A great option for guests looking to extend their stay!

The space
This listing is for a Traditional Log House rental/day/week/mo. Great for a summer vacation rental! Amazing for Autumn foliage and especially the cranberry harvest!! Our $115/day off-season rate and $200/nt peak/in-season rate (first 4 guests, $25/nt each additional guest) reflects our ''almost finished'' state. PLEASE NOTE: OUR HOUSE IS NOT "PERFECT"!!!!!, despite the almost 700, 5 star reviews. We are always trying to finish small projects and we are ALWAYS extremely grateful for all of our amazingly considerate and understanding guests from around the world!

IMPORTANT!!! PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE BOOKING!!!

This listing has been, by far, the single most popular listing on Airbnb in our area for nearly 6 years. Not exaggerating or trying to boast. It is NOT the nicest Airbnb listing in our area or the least expensive, yet we have been #1 because, as you can see from our reviews, guests love the log house, the property, the cranberry bogs, the location near the Cape, Boston, Providence, etc.. But, equally important (if not more so these days) guests also appreciate true hospitality, the considerate things we do like baking a fresh cranberry bread for almost every single guest, the fresh plants and flowers, the breakfast fixings we always leave for every single guest, the normally instant responses when guests have questions or need any help at all. We are always, always less than any hotel/motel room and pet friendly for no extra fee, and we have always had a $10 cleaning fee no matter how long the stay. We enjoy hosting, being kind and showing sincere care and appreciation. You can easily see that in almost every single one of our reviews going back almost 7 years.

HOWEVER, 2020/21 in particular has been a very different hosting experience. We have had more damage inflicted on our log house and our 3 boat Airbnb listings during this time than the previous 6 years combined. We have seen a significant up-tick in extraordinarily rude, inconsiderate and hyper critical guests that we are simply not qualified to handle. The damage that one bad guest can do is mind-boggling and is a constant one step forward, two steps back. Our listing descriptions and house rules have never changed and we ALWAYS ALWAYS BEG guests like this NOT to book our listings!! These guests are ALWAYS first-time Airbnb guests. We have always loved welcoming first-time Airbnb guests, however, we are no longer able to accommodate first time Airbnb requests for our log house. If you are truly a nice, polite and considerate first time guest, please let us know :) We can usually tell from the initial request email and are happy to accommodate this kind of guest. Otherwise, again, DO NOT request our listings. We can not risk the damage any more, the emotional strain of unbelievably rude guests and, to add insult to injury, Airbnb no longer provides the host support that we had relied on to keep our listings ''perfect'' and has maintained a policy of turning these issues into absolute nightmares for hosts while increasing their unbelievable fees. AGAIN, WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING MOST FIRST TIME AIRBNB GUEST REQUESTS. First time guests are more likely to be able to reserve our boat listings but our log house can no longer sustain the daily/weekly damage that inevitably reduces the unique and beautiful Airbnb experience that our amazing guests deserve and that we have ALWAYS LOVED PROVIDING!!! Our kind, considerate and polite guests do not deserve to see duct tape holding our expensive bed frames together when we can't get a contractor in to fix them in the tiny 4 hour gap between daily check-ins and outs, holes in walls, broken railings, tire tracks on our once beautiful yard, broken chairs, ruined dining tables, missing utensils, broken dishes, scratches on our gorgeous hard wood floors, broken brand new BBQs, etc, etc, etc.!!!! The house repairs are coming along and the property is still very beautiful but we appreciate guests understanding and consideration as we work to make this very cool listing "perfect" again :)

PLEASE NOTE: Guests should be aware that I have a tiny house/office/workshop/shed (although it is like the Dr. Who telephone booth...much bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside :) on the very edge of the property which I have only recently started using occasionally as Covid cases spike, plateau, spike, etc... It can not be seen from the log house 9 months out of the year and is twice as far from the log house as our 3 neighbors are. I am never ever on the main property while the house is reserved and guests will not see or hear me during their stay. I go between my marina about 30 mins away and the tiny house and it is on an entirely separate road with its own entrance, but guests may see my car (albeit about 200 ft away). I have been more than happy to waive the per diem cleaning fee and have been refunding the initial $10 cleaning to thank guests for their consideration as I do my best to help keep my guests, my neighbors and myself safe and healthy during these unusual times. The fact is that guests will not see any difference in the quality of their stay but I try my absolute best to manage expectations and have found over the last 6 years as a "super host" that guests sincerely appreciate it :)

As guests can easily see from the reviews, I am at my guests' disposal 24/7 and if there is an issue of any kind whatsoever, please, please, please just let me know and I will do everything humanly possible to make it right. I have hosted roughly 5,000 guests at my log house and have seen it all. 99.99999% of my guests remind me every single day why I love hosting and they absolutely appreciate the unique setting, house and surrounding property/area. However, if you are one of the 20 or so guests over the last 7 years who have arrived with an attitude, or inebriated or are not amenable to following our ''be-kind'' house rules, please let me know immediately and I will help find another listing and will provide a refund. We simply are not able to accommodate this kind of guest and are more than happy to help find a local host who is :)

Lastly, I actually do not meet many of our guests unless they arrive right at the 3:00pm check-in time and I am still getting the last little things finished for their stay. My ''Jerry Maguire'' hosting statement above may lead some to think there is a lot of host/guest interaction :) There isn't :) I truly enjoy the rare opportunity to say hi and answer any inquiries if I meet guests in the driveway on my way out and their way in upon arrival, but guests need not worry about undue interaction, in any way whatsoever :) I don't even see many of my guests at our 3 boat listings after giving them the initial 30 second tour and safety talk. I, like my guests, appreciate privacy and respect the fact that during their stay, the listing is theirs :) I am always at their disposal, but most guests will only interact with me via the Airbnb app, texts or calls :)

Where you’ll be

Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States

Located only a few miles from historic Plymouth, this property is situated on a series of cranberry bogs and has walking trails along lakes and ponds across the street. It is not located in a neighborhood, per se, although it does sit back from the main ''old'' road leading down to water- front Plymouth.

The house has two incredibly lovely neighbors on either side, however, it remains very quiet and private with each property an acre or more each.
