"We have enjoyed another wonderful two weeks at your house. The sunsets were beautiful and the osprey flew overhead every day. We enjoyed sitting on the deck in the evening and feeling the breeze. We also got to enjoy the fireworks on the 4th, displayed over the water. Thank you for having us again and we hope to enjoy your home next summer."
8/15/09 (date of arrival,8/8/09): "We had a wonderful week and best family vacation! We loved the views and the coziness of your home! You'd think we were in Ireland with the green farmland and old stone walls. We ate the freshest corn and blueberries! The girls loved shopping at Partners and ice cream at Grey's Tiverton Four Corners (visited when I was a kid). Although I grew up 20 minutes from here, I've never spent much time on the East river side. I shared many memories with my husband and girls and look forward to making many more with my own family. Whoever said you can vacation in your own backyard got it right!"
The house is very comfortable with beautiful views of the river and in a quiet area of Westport. We were able to kayak, go to the beach (which is pay per day) and visit nearby Fall River and Dartmouth.
Our family had an outstanding week in Westport, staying at this great property. The amenities were fantastic, the owners were great to deal with and we would definitely stay again. I'm from Westport originally, and this property was a great spot for us to stay at with the quiet and beauty of the location. The sunsets are the best I have seen.....right on the Westport river for kayaking, two miles from beautiful Horseneck Beach, 30 mins outside of Newport, and near New Bedford, where you can catch an hour ferry ride to the Vineyard or Nantucket.
We have been renting this beautiful 3 story 3 BR 2bR home on the Westport River for over 6 years. Located on a quiet street it is a spacious, clean, comfortable and centrally located within a short drive to Horseneck Beach, Westport Point, the local vineyard as well as the North Dartmouth Mall. The ferry to Marthas Vineyard is 20 minutes away and it is an easy drive to Providence or Cape Cod. There are many wonderful restaurants serving the local flavors within a 15 minute drive. It has all the amenities including AC, WiFi, W/D, nice appliances, large freezer/refrig, as well as a large yard for the kids to play in and abundant local wildlife. It has upper and lower decks on which to enjoy the awesome sunsets over the River. The owners have always been gracious and accommodating and any issues that arose during our stay were promptly and professionally resolved, We would highly recommend this rental home if you would like to enjoy the serenity and beauty of Westport, MA.
Thanks so much for sharing your lovely getaway with us. The area is just spectacular; the beaches and the weather were total perfection! It was a hot week so the AC was appreciated as was everything about the house.
We were busy every minute with visits to the beach, winery, brewery, a local gallery and a shop just brimming with unique items made by the many local artists. The view from the deck was serene. And the area is perfect for biking, too. Maybe we can come back next year for a longer stay... a week was too short!!
We have stayed at this property every summer for the past several years when visiting our family in Westport and, as always, the the house was great. The place is so welcoming, with everything always clean and in working order. And we never get tired of the beautful views of the Westport River! We even used your record player this year (we weren't sure our kids knew what an album looks like give CD's and ipods!) We also really appreciated having the internet connection. Lastly, we highly recommend the 4th of July tomatoes at the farmstand just up the road!
Westport, Massachusetts is part of 'Farmcoast New England,' known for its farming and fishing history. It is a picturesque town, filled with rolling meadows, working dairy farms, vineyards, charming villages, and a spectacular barrier beach (Horseneck Beach, whose sand dunes rival any on Cape Cod) that separates the Atlantic Ocean from the beautiful Westport River on which this house is located. The river is actually a salt water estuary that offers opportunities for everything from shellfishing to jet-skiing. Historical New Bedford is just 15 minutes away, as is outlet shopping in Fall River. Both Providence and famous Newport, Rhode Island are only a 45-minute drive.
