Overview

Fairhaven Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Charming and newly remodeled two bedroom cottage located right on Buzzards Bay. Enjoy brand new three season porch overlooking the bay with large second story viewing deck and pergola featuring magnificent ocean views. Adjacent to boat launch area and beach so great for swimming and boating. Wake up in the master bedroom in queen-size bed overlooking Buzzards Bay.

This lovely coastal town is rich with history and is across the harbor from the famed seaport of New Bedford. It also boasts some of the most beautiful public buildings in New England.

The state beach on Buzzards Bay, the more private West Island Beach, and the three and a half mile Phoenix Bike Trail are all a bike ride away from the cottage. Also within biking distance, you will find the quaint downtown area bustling with restaurants, unique shops, historical tours, festivals, and more.

About The Owner

We had talked about buying a piece of property by the water for quite some time and had looked at a few pieces but never really connected with anything. We came to Fairhaven one day to pick something up at West Marine, saw an open house sign and decided to take a look. When we saw the cottage it was structurally sound but did not have any curb appeal. Suzanne immediately saw the potential to make the cottage a very cozy get away spot so an offer was made and accepted and within a couple of months the initial transformation was completed. We put all of the fencing around the property and then Suzanne planted the rose pushes that climb the front fence and planted a flower garden behind the fence. We added a porch on the east end of the property when we first purchased and then in 2010 we decided to remove the outdoor porch and replaced it with a three season room with a large deck above.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2001

Why The Owner chose Fairhaven

We like the Fairhaven area because of the ease of getting to places like Newport RI, Plymouth Ma and Cape Cod without living with the crowds that are associated with these areas

What makes this cottage unique

We like to drive to the bike trail and walk the mile and 1/2 to the center of Fairhaven for breakfast. There are many great restaurants in the South Coast area that we also enjoy. With Buzzards Bay right outside the door, kayaking, sailing, wind surfing and other water activities are enjoyed throughout the summer.

Relaxing Respite On the Water

  • 4 of 5

Lovely little cottage on the water with beautiful small garden courtyard leading to spiral staircase with second story deck overlooking the water. Nice place to kayak, fish, swim at the beach in front of the property or launch a boat from the public boat launch adjacent to the property. Outdoor shower extremely convenient. The front 3 season room is worth every minute to sit and read, enjoy a meal with family and watch the sun rise. Recommend fans to circulate air on hot, humid summer days.

Couldn't find a better place to watch fireworks overlooking the bay on July 4th! Close to town and conveniences. Nicely maintained property and very friendly owner who is accessible if needed and responds promptly. Would definitely recommend to small families or a couple looking for a relaxing getaway.
