The house and surroundings were gorgeous. So many activites and resturants nearby, but we enjoyed ourselves just sitting on the deck taking in the views. Tom was great and went out of his way to make us comfortable. We would definetly come back!

We wanted to get away and be close to the water for 4 days when we stumbled across this listing online. I have family in New Bedford that we wanted to see without getting everyone in a traffic jam to spend some time by the water. So, Fairhaven was an ideal location. We felt like we were in Martha's Vineyard. We felt like were instantly on vacation upon entering this beautiful home, as did our guests who came to visit. Unlike any other house in this area this one had so much more to offer. First of all, the house was gorgeous, thoughtfully decorated, and very welcoming. It was an easy transition from our home to this one. This home offers many things that many others didn't. We thoroughly enjoyed the direct water access to go kayaking, swimming, and exploring. Also warmed up in the hot tub everyday after swimming and using the outdoor shower. The beach access down the street was nice to have also. Our favorite spot in the house was sitting at the kitchen table/couch and bird watching with the binoculars provided (we also did some bird watching from the hot tub). Barbecuing on the deck was part of our daily routine. If you need anything at the grocery store just hop on your bike and Stop and Shop is only a 5 minute ride. In the opposite direction West island is about a 30 minute ride but well worth the trip with spectacular views, many shore birds, and a relaxed beachy community. There is also an awesome bike trail 3 minutes up the road from the house. Tom was super nice and welcoming! He provided everything we could possibly need for our stay along with a small shed to house our bikes. The house was very neat and organized. We would highly recommend this home for your vacation because the view alone is well worth it, never mind everything else that this home has to offer!
Loved it!

Wonderful little cottage on Buzzards Bay. My husband and I stayed here for 2.5 months and enjoyed every minute. The home is well stocked with everything you need for day to day life. Paul and Tom are wonderful and thoughtful hosts. Can't say enough about this home. We enjoyed the watching the variety of wild life from interesting birds to rabbits. If you need a place to relax and renew, this is one to consider.

We stayed with our 8 and 5 year-old daughters and small dog. The house is even nicer in person than it looked in the photos. The views are stunning and the house is very comfortable, beautifully decorated and well-appointed. The owners are very nice and helpful. We would love to stay here again.

Amazing Vacation Home!!

Our family had an unbelievably great time in this home. We had a welcoming experience with the owners when we met with them to get the keys and go over where thing were. The entire property is gorgeous! Inside of the home, everything is impeccably clean and in perfect working order. The decor of the residence is classy, fun, and inviting. One highlight of the house, is the living room area, with it's high ceiling, which allows for a magnificent view of the sea. Everything has been thought of in regards to making the vacation experience more enjoyable. The layout of the home is great for entertaining. There is plenty of seating so that you can enjoy the different areas of the home and the views of the ocean. The Kitchen is stunning! All of the kitchenware and towels were provided and were of good quality. Games and movies were stocked, to provide enjoyment when being outside wasn't an option. We did spend most of the time outdoors, cooking on the grill, kayaking and enjoying the sun. The views in the photos do not do this place justice. The oceanfront view is breathtaking. After a swim in the ocean, you can rinse off at the outside shower (which is temperature adjustable, so you can take a hot shower outside) and sit in the hot tub. My favorite part was the hot tub at night, while looking out at the sea with the stars overhead...WOW! The home is not far from the grocery store and shops, so you can get the things you need and get back to relaxation. We had a fantastic time here. Staying in this home was truly a gift of serenity!

Fairhaven has a rich history dating back to the days of the Pilgrims. The first naval battle of the American Revolution was fought by Fairhaven militiamen aboard the sloop Success in May of 1775. The town withstood an attack by the British in 1778 and grew in prosperity during the whaling days in the 1800s.

The town's most remarkable features are the magnificent European-style public buildings built between 1885 and 1906 by Standard Oil Company millionaire Henry Huttleston Rogers, a native of the town.

Visiting Fairhaven, you'll find a public state beach overlooking Buzzards Bay, several recreational marinas, historical Fort Phoenix and the Rogers buildings, free walking tours, a number of unique shops and more than fifty restaurants. Nearby are Boston, Providence and Cape Cod.

A nearby bike path, recreation center and mini golf make this a great spot for families.
