COZY OCEANFRONT COTTAGE ON WEST ISLAND

Fairhaven Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

Our newly renovated (in 2010) vacation home is a cozy seaside cottage on West Island. The cottage itself has all of the basic amenities of a beach house, but the main attraction of the home is its location. The property consists of over a quarter acre of open lawn, leading to a seawall, with stone steps to the water. The water in front of the house is shallow with a sandy bottom, great for swimming and using the two kayaks. When not in the water, the yard is a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the unobstructed views of Buzzard’s Bay, looking west and southwest toward Cuttyhunk and the Elizabeth Islands. If you are up for a walk or exploring the local beach, we are a short walk or drive from the West Island State Reservation, which consists of woods, marshes, hiking trails and a beautiful mile-long sandy beach, great for a hike, swim or long walk on the beach in the completely undeveloped nature reserve.

Suitability:
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • pets considered

West Island is situated in Buzzard's Bay, south of Fairhaven and Mattapoisett. The island is connected by causeway and bridge to the southern tip of Sconticut Neck, which juts out about three miles into Buzzard's Bay. Once you cross over the causeway and onto the island you enter a peaceful environment which is partly residential and partly a nature preserve. The majority of the island is covered by the West Island State Reservation, consisting of woods, marshes, hiking trails, and a beautiful mile-long sandy beach. The reservation, its trails and beaches are open year round to public use. The waters surrounding the island are generally shallow and are great for swimming, kayaking, fishing and other salt water activities. The homes on the island include both seasonal cottages and year round residences. Life on the island is very quiet. There are no stores, but all amenities, restaurants, retail shops, etc. are just a short drive away.

Notes:
Staying at our West Island cottage presents an opportunity for a no frills, relaxing week on the open water of Buzzard’s Bay. Our home has all of the basic amenities of a seaside vacation cottage, but in no way does it offer the luxury of some of the modern resorts. Our home is very much like the island itself, quiet, basic, a bit of a step back to a simpler time. At the same time, if there is something we do not have at the cottage, but which we can supply for you, we will certainly consider your request. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
