About Caroline Whitney
We are a family with deep New England roots. 5 generations have enjoyed gathering in Mattapoisett. There are many stories to tell of the days of fishing with uncles, sailing, weekly races in Beetle Cats and Herreshoff Twelves, tennis competitions and trips to the islands and just hanging out with cousins and friends.
Why Caroline Whitney chose Mattapoisett
This property is perfect with its own beach, enough open space for lawn games and play. It is a place to be enjoyed by all ages. Sitting on the porch of the Big House or the deck of The Little House, with views to the harbour and bay, encourage relaxing encounters. For those rainy days inside, there are puzzles and games, but bring your own favorites.
What makes this house unique
We have enjoyed the house for its diversity of space within the houses that allows for various activities. Games in the garden and quiet time in the evenings at sunset. The harbor is always busy with boats coming and going. Children have happy times here.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This was our second year and again we had a wonderful time. It is an ideal location for a family, where you want to be near the Cape without Cape traffic. The house is terrific for a large family who want to spend time with each other, with a large lawn and private beach. The house is not modernized in decor or amenities, but for a summer stay, it is works. There are plenty of tableware, linens, fans, and porch furniture. It is obvious that the owners are making improvements whenever it is possible.
