Nutting / Cole House

Current Residents
Jane and Frank Hinkle

This house, now The Tea Rose Inn, is a Queen Anne Victorian, 3-story home with a rectangular tower on one side. In the court- yard garden there is an old strain of rose bush that is believed to be part of the original tea rose landscaping dating back to the 1800s. It only seemed appropriate that we name our beautiful home, The Tea Rose Inn.

Plymouth Town records date the construction as early 1883 and the Inn originally served as the home of Edwin and Anna Nutting for many years. Originally, there were three bedrooms on the second floor with five rooms on the third floor that provided servant’s quarters. The original servant’s call bell is still mounted on the wall in one of the third floor rooms.

Back in the day, local businessmen Jason F. Draper and John F. Maynard, owners of the D & M Sporting Goods factory on North Main Street, were neighbors. The Maynard House is next door to the Inn and the Draper House is just across the street.

Jane and Frank purchased the home in 2006 with the hopes of opening a bed and breakfast. After extensive restoration of the servant’s quarters and second floor of the carriage house, they were finally ready to open their beautiful home to provide elegant accommodations to visitors.

Pardon Our Dust!

We are in the process of putting together an application to be listed as a National Historical Site. In order to be listed on the National Historical Registry any restorations must follow strict standards. Since we are doing the restoration of our beautiful Inn ourselves this increases the time and effort, but we think it will be well worth it.  We wanted to make our home available to guests as early as possible so that we could share its beauty.  We have completed 99% of the interior restoration and our guest rooms are complete with all amenities however  the exterior is another matter.  Our efforts to make our Inn a “Painted Victorian Lady” is a work in progress. Please excuse our dust as we bring this grand lady back to her glory days.
