We supply an inflatable toddler bed when young children want/need to sleep in their parent's room.

The home has a third floor reached by a circular stairway to a monitor room with 360 view of the water and town, a telescope and sitting area.

With 8 rooms, 3 porches, sizable fenced side yard, this home has ample room for family gatherings as well as quiet nooks for alone time.

The fully fenced in side yard is great for young children and we supply croquet and other yard games.

The deeded beach has a small boat ramp and granite stairs into the water and is perfect at low to half tide for sun bathing and at all tides for floating, boating, and swimming. Additionally, there is a town beach 4 blocks away with life guards, swing sets, swimming dock and tons of sand. Our guests receive a beach pass as part of their stay with us.

This is a walking village where people are out and about on foot or bike. Within a 10 block radius there are delicious restaurants, spas, general store, ocean-view bar, churches, local grocery store, liquor store, high end boutiques, toy store, coffee shop, post office, nail salon, diner, and banks, playground, town tennis court, school basketball court, parks, waterside park with gazebo where outdoor concerts are held every Wednesday night in the summer. The town wharves bustle with boating activity and the favorite ice cream slip fills a corner of one wharf and opens early and closes late. This is a quintessential New England town where favorite summer vacation memories are made to last a lifetime!

About Owner/Property Manager: Jay Mello & Maureen Mello

We discovered this magical village when we were pregnant with our daughter and have enjoyed the serenity and magic of this historic town whose name means 'place of rest'. We can't imagine living elsewhere. The symbol of our town is a seahorse and it has become the spirit of our family. The male seahorse raises the child and that resembles our family. My husband was Mr. Mom as I pursued the salary sustaining career so that one of us could raise our daughter. Yeah, Seahorse!!

Owner/Property Manager: Jay Mello & Maureen Mello purchased this estate in 1995

Why Owner/Property Manager: Jay Mello & Maureen Mello chose Mattapoisett

This property was in disrepair when we moved to town in 1987 and we'd walk by and feel such pain that such a town landmark was in such a state. As luck would have it, we purchased her in 1995 and began our labor of love to restore her to her grand stature when she was the queen of the town in 1809. We feel one with this historic home only owned by two families in her 200 + years. We have restored her yet kept her true to her character. So when you visit, you will experience modern conveniences within the context of her 1800 architecture.

What makes this estate unique

Private beach; town beach with life guard .5 miles; outside cold/hot shower; fenced in yard; 3 porches to enjoy waterviews; first floor bedroom with half bath; kayak with launch area; granite steps to beach; walking block from spa, restaurant/bar; general store; liquor store; ATM; upscale gift shop; post office; nail salon; sushi /seafood restaurant. Mooring available for extra fee with launch service.

Total Bliss

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect summer vacation we’d always dreamed about; quintessential New England location, water-view, beach access, charming house, and quiet bliss. This place delivers it all. It’s the loveliest little town with shops and restaurants, though honestly we spent most of our time enjoying the view from the front porch and relaxing in the yard. There’s a great beach right across the street and we took many walks to the light-house. The house is amazing—right out of a story-book. We hope to bring our extended family next time, since it’s the perfect house for large family vacation. We’ll be back again!

Beautiful Home, Wonderful Community

  • 5 of 5
We have previously rented homes on Cape Cod with our extended family, but were late on booking. Fortunately we found this beautiful waterfront home and an amazing community (without CC traffic)!

The home was remarkably clean, comfortable, and large enough for 11 of us to spread out. It was very well maintained. It has amazing water views from almost every window. When we were not at the beach, lighthouse or Shipyard Park across the street, the adults enjoyed cocktails on our choice of 3 water-view porches, and the children played games in the spacious side yard. We did not use the mooring, because we did not own a boat at the time.

There were several restaurants in town, but we chose to eat at the one overlooking the park, which was only steps away. We were not disappointed. There was also a stand on the wharf that sells ice cream, hot dogs and such.

The charm of the home and the quaint New England village made it hard to leave.
