I feel rather honored to be the first to review The Stalls, which is a wonderful and unique summer home preserved by a large family who continue to visit ; thus my sister and I, with husbands in tow. were very lucky to book the property in early June of 2015 as the nucleus of the wedding of my nephew in Mattapoisett. Formerly the carriage house for a large estate, with living quarters for the coachman, the house was a delightfully cozy and inviting summertime retreat for us. The bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs were bright and very clean, while downstairs the long and well equipped kitchen, fireplaced living room and dining table fit for a country squire were filled with treasures from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries - a wall-mounted, hand-operated can opener, a cubbyhole desk offering current, local information, an upright piano with a bench brimming with show tune/ragtime sheet music and best of all The Stalls themselves - three slots for the estates horses now containing three single beds for young or old visitors ready to call it a day,
There were so many opportunities for outdoor activities, with a beautifully maintained lawn leading down to the rocky shore along the bay with a sandy private beach and dock, and an adjacent 'magic circle' on a small knoll topped by a large flagpole where the maritime colors ceremony can be enacted at sunset.
The owners, Anne Layton and her husband could not have been more gracious and helpful. If you're interested in Mattapoisett we recommend unreservedly that you consider The Stalls - I hope you're as lucky as we were to spend time at this very special home.
Cleaning is an estimated cost. Owner will arrange cleaning for move out and any additional cleaning tenant may desire during stay.
Mattapoisett is a pleasant New England coastal town with a large harbor on Buzzards Bay whose name is said to come from an old Indian word meaning 'a place of resting'. Settled about 1750, Mattapoisett was part of Rochester until 1857, when it was incorporated into a separate town. Historians believe that the sheltered harbor may have been used by European explorers long before any settlements in the community. There are, also, some Indian burial sites in the town.
Shipbuilding was established around 1740 and before the Civil War the principal businesses in the town were shipbuilding and whaling.
The old village offers a glimpse into the past with its many historic homes. Plaques on the old houses remind one of names made famous in bygone days. Many ships, including famous New Bedford whaling vessels, were built in the shipyards on our shores. Among the ships built here were the Acushnet, on which Herman Melville sailed. Ship Yard Park is the site of Jonathan Holmes’s shipyard.
