Located in the heart of the historic downtown district of Plymouth, Massachusetts, The John Carver Inn & Spa is situated in one of the very best spots in America’s Hometown. Close to Plymouth Rock, the Mayflower and a short drive from Plimoth Plantation, the John Carver Inn & Spa is an excellent choice of accommodations for tourists looking to explore the oldest municipality in New England.
Even though I’m a local, I’ve brought my own children for overnights at the John Carver Inn. With a theme pool, family restaurant and close proximity to area attractions, the inn is attractive to tourists and locals alike!
And though I’ve visited the inn before, this visit was my first chance to check out the spa. The Beach Plum Spa is a full service spa consisting of eight treatment rooms. A wide range of services are offered which include massage, facials, manicures & pedicures, peels and waxing plus many more services which you can find listed here.
The spa also offers media-spa services such as injectables, pain-free hair removal, i-Lipo laser and Pixel Perfect Erbium laser.
You don’t have to be a guest of the hotel to visit the spa as it’s open to the public. Guests are invited to enjoy the serenity room, lap pool and exercise equipment during their spa visit. Robes and slippers are provided in the changing room along with all the amenities you need to freshen up after your services.
During my visit I enjoyed a signature Warm Himalayan Salt Stone Massage which left me feeling like a pool of warm melted butter by the end of it. Hand carved heated salt massage stones were used to ease all of my tensions away. And my skin felt velvety smooth by the end of it. I highly recommend this treatment!
Be sure to visit the spa store before you leave as they have a full line of organic skincare products and specialty gifts that you are sure to enjoy.
The rooms at the John Carver Inn are comfortable and well appointed. Keeping with the colonial feel of the area, the rooms have traditional furnishings and artwork. There are eighty spacious guest rooms and luxury fireplace suites. Some even have jacuzzi tubs! A very cozy place to end your day of touring our beautiful town.
Kids staying at the inn will be thrilled to discover the Pilgrim Cove indoor theme pool with a replica Mayflower and Plymouth Rock complete with 80 foot water slide which will keep the kids entertained for hours. Parents will enjoy soaking in the whirlpool while the kids frolic.
This is a great place to hold a birthday party as kids with winter birthdays will certainly appreciate the chance to splash and swim even if it’s snowing out! And in the summer time the large glass sliding windows that face the pool open up to a gracious patio where you can enjoy the sunshine!
The inn has two dining establishments. The Hearth ‘n Kettle is a full service restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. With a focus on Cape Cod cuisine, the Hearth ‘n Kettle serves up satisfying traditional New England fare. This is a great restaurant for families as the menu is very reasonably priced and offers a wide range of foods that will please the young picky eaters and also the adults who might prefer a regional seafood dish of succulent lobster or maybe a crispy platter of fish and chips!
For diners looking for a more adult experience, be sure to visit the inn’s WaterFire Tavern. The tavern is situated around a unique fire pit that’s part fountain and part flame. Diners can enjoy tapas, grilled pizzas and creative entrees while enjoying craft beers and cocktails as the fire and water changes color before their very eyes. It’s a fun way to spend an evening!
The John Carver Inn & Spa has much to offer young and old alike. A wonderful place to use as your home base as you explore this quaint New England town. Be sure to visit the John Carver Inn & Spa website for rates and availability.
