About Susannah Laskaris
My love and appreciation for nature came from growing up 'rural' - in VT, NH, and a 'dash' of suburban life in the Boston, MA. area.... which included spending summers with extended family in Westport, MA. This land has been in the family for over 100 years and we consider it a gift to preserve and manage it carefully so family, friends and guests can enjoy the natural beauty and tranquility today, as well as for generations to come. For over 25 years I've administered education and community gardening outreach programs at NYC Botanic Gardens and currently help create and maintain micro-farms and gardens for schools, residential and apartment properties and green corridors connecting neighborhoods. In my spare time I love to quilt.
Susannah Laskaris purchased this House in 2011
Why Susannah Laskaris chose Westport
The land has been in the family for 100+ years. The sun-filled house looks out onto a wrap around wild flower field, perennial gardens, ancient stone walls and a beautiful, old barn. Enjoy peace and quiet and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Westport and Westport Point is a secret get-away from the clamor of Cape Cod crowds and traffic. Here is where the natural beauty and integrity of woodland, open fields and stunning water ways have remained intact thanks to forward-thinking community who long advocated for a good balance of land use with land preservation.
What makes this House unique
20 minute walk to Historic Westport Point and Lee's Wharf. Easy 5 minute access by car/20 minute by bike, to Horseneck Beach (State, Town & Private access) and marshland walks; quiet and very relaxing; a place to build year-to-year memories, to connect with nature and to rejuvenate completely.

Quiet and Charming
Susannah was extremely responsive and available for all our questions and gave local recommendations. The home is beautiful- it has lots of lights and the pictures only show the half of it. The home is located on a plot of land connected to trails into the forest and you can often see local wildlife by just looking out the window (turkeys, rabbits, and lots of birds). Best of all, we were able to work “from home” because the internet service was reliable.
Amazing home in a tranquil setting
This home is truly amazing and located in a beautiful section of town. Susannah was absolutely amazing and thorough.
Third time renting this house
Great place in excellent location for anything you're up to in this area (we have family nearby). Owner is diligent; property is in good shape and well equipped. Will be back.
nice house, great location
It's a nice house in a great location - about little more than a mile from the beaches. Susannah is responsive, reasonable and a pleasure to work with.
I worked from home while I was there and the wifi/internet was fine to do whatever I needed - zoom calls etc. I would definitely stay there again.
It was a delight to host Josh. He took great care of the house, reached out when a question arose and was easy to trouble shoot with on a few things that came up with the house. He also refurbished the house with general supplies for the next incoming guest. Considerate, a good communicator and friendly.
I highly recommend Josh as a top notch guest - wherever he may stay in the future. And without a doubt, Josh would be welcome anytime for a return visit!.
Great Spot -- Highly Recommend
A beautiful home in a great location. Tastefully decorated, very clean, with an attentive and responsive owner. Will most defiantly book again when travelling to this little slice of heaven.
