About Kate Pillsbury
Mattapoisett is a very special place. It sits on Buzzards Bay just before the bridge to Cape Cod. We feel that it has all the great things about Cape Cod such as beach, boating, golf, tennis, good restaurants, and things to do without the traffic and crowds. Our house is on Ned's Point Road close to the lighthouse and the Mattapoisett Boatyard.
Why Kate Pillsbury chose Mattapoisett Center
This is a very special property. It sleeps eleven people so it works well for families with children, couples vacationing together, cycling groups, multiple generations etc. The house includes the main house which has two bedrooms downstairs and four bedrooms upstairs. And then there is the windmill which has a downstairs living space with full bathroom and a bedroom upstairs. You can bring your friends and/or extended family and you will not run out of room!
What makes this House unique
The house has a main house plus a renovated cottage that once was a windmill. The windmill works well as it gives a little bit of privacy from the main house. The house has it's own private beach. A great place for sunbathing, swimming, and watching the sunsets at the Lighthouse.

Rough but convenient
House was rented as base point for family coming into Mattaposiette for wedding Friday Evening June 15th. Originally was quoted a lower rate but owner ‘had to make an adjustment to quote because the lower rate ended before our week was up ‘
(6/9-6/16). House is advertised appropriately in regards to layout and amenities but there is a lack of upkeep/cleaning that may come from taking a family home into the rental business. From not having the key to enter where it was told it would be (owners had to bring it the next day) to leftover grinds in coffee maker was how it began but the most upsetting was a call we got from the owner 2 hours before our Son’s wedding. Apparently a ‘distressed ‘ neighbor (who had grilled us that morning as we were walking the beach) lied that the legal fire we had the evening before was still going thus prompting owners call to us....too bad that neighbor didn’t call the Fire Department as she threatened...she would have been slapped with a false call !
Harassment/added stress right before we were to walk our Son down the isle was unnecessary and extremely upsetting. Unfortunately the owner has no control of her nasty neighbor. Mattaposiett is not a place to vacation, their wallets are too fat and their attitude is unwelcoming
Great location for swimming, biking, and walking. Beautiful views of sunset and harbor. House has lots of space to gather or retreat. Very large, well groomed yard to stroll about. Definitely would visit again. Suggest removing old toys, broken beach chairs, pots and pans that have had better days. Sometimes less is more 😀�
Perfect Spot for a Family Xmas Gathering
We had a perfectly lovely time, spending Xmas in this large house with its ample grounds and easy access to the beach and light house. The house was plenty big enough for our party which was at its height 10 adults and two dogs. The house had a lovely "lived-in" atmosphere with family mementos, books, and games. I love to bake/cook and there was every utensil imaginable in the kitchen cupboards. We were there in winter and some of the downstairs bedrooms were a little chilly if the doors were closed--not a problem in the warmer months though. The neighborhood around the house was very nice too--just 5 minutes away from Ned's Point Light House--a popular spot for dog walkers. We enjoyed some beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the beach. The town of Mattapoisett was about a 20-25 minute walk away and had a few small shops and a pleasant beach walk. There is a mall for other shopping about 15 minutes by car where you can get groceries. The house is ideally situated. We went to New Bedford to the Whaling Museum and also to Newport RI. The Cape and the islands are also well within traveling distance. I would recommend this house for families or several couples.
Beautiful home in a beautiful town.
The home and the property were awe inspiring. The moment I walked in the door, I felt love, happiness and family. It is a great big house, rich with history. You can walk in the door with your clothes and food and not need one thing. The owners are wonderful, kind people, and very easy to work with and communicate with. They called to check up after our visit, to make sure everything was to our satisfaction, and I can honestly say, I cannot even think of one thing that wasn't perfect. We have a large family, and we were all able to vacation together. Our children, grand children, great grandson, and YES, even our grand dogs ALL had an amazing time. Best vacation to date! We were sad to go, and cannot wait to return next year!!
Thank you for your kind words! We are glad everyone enjoyed the house!
Mattapoisett is a wonderful destination. The summer season is busy with beachgoers, and people enjoying the sunshine and water sports. The fall is spectacular. The weather is 60-75 degrees and the skies are sunny and clear. The cranberry bogs are a beautiful site to see and can be enjoyed every fall along with the fall foliage. The town is more quiet and serene during the fall months. The locals feel that September and October are the best time of the year.
