Westport House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom Sleeps 6-8 Home On Old Farm, 10 Minutes To Horseneck Beac

Location: Westport Point, South coast of Massachusetts, USA (20 minutes to Fall River, MA & 30 minutes to Providence, RI, one hour from Boston)

Accommodations: 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6-8)

If you want more room than a simple cottage provides - this is the place! This peaceful, 2000 square foot, three bedroom summer house with a spacious window seat and outdoor front porch over looking expansive hay fields sleeps up to seven people on 2 queen beds, 1 double bed, and 1 twin bed. It is located just a 5 min drive from Horseneck State Beach (public beach access, which stretches 5 miles along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean).

The house features a large 800 square foot living area with multiple seating areas for reading, playing games and visiting. In addition to the one full bathroom, there is an outdoor shower for use after a wonderful day at the beach. There is also a sunny, stone-walled garden for outdoor meals, reading, and relaxing. This great family house is the perfect respite from your busy world. It is available for rent for one(1) week, or for as many weeks as you are interested in throughout the summer season. Pets are not allowed and smoking is not permitted.

Our family most enjoyed starting the day with blueberry pancakes (from the local farm stand) on the front porch. Then we pack up for the beach - the energetic among us decide to jog there. We enjoy Horseneck Beach, rated best beach in New England, kids playing the surf, adults beach combing down to the harbor mouth. Snack bar for hot dogs or ice cream. Come home to wash off sand and salt in the outdoor shower before heading up the country road to Woods Creamery, the best ice cream around (Moose Tracks, our favorite!). Come back to the house, dinner on the porch, fresh fish caught that day, and watch the sunset over the field with the swallows swooping overhead. If it is Saturday night, the family heads down toward the Point for the community square dance, a tradition since the 1930's.

Westport Point is known for its local charm. No franchises are allowed in the region, but the area has many quaint shops and restaurants, and independent businesses support a local agricultural and beach community. Stop by the Westport River Winery for a tour, pick up fresh lobsters at the local fish store for dinner, go shelling on the beach, enjoy antiquing, or just relax on the porch of the house and enjoy the great summers for which Westport is known.

Fall River, Massachusetts is 20 minutes away, and is the home of hundreds of outlet stores, Battleship Cove and a working antique carousel. Newport, Rhode Island is 35 minutes by car. For a wonderful excursion, treat yourself to a day in Boston which is 60 miles north, or to Providence, Rhode Island which is 30 miles Northwest of Westport.

New Bedford is 25 minutes east. New Bedford hosts a waterfront area, a whaling museum and regular daytrip boats to take pedestrians or cyclists to Martha's Vineyard.

Westport is 60 miles from Boston, Massachusetts’s Logan Airport and 35 miles from T.F. Green Airport in Providence, Rhode Island. There is easy access to Westport from Connecticut, New York and other east coast areas.

About Ben Yeomans

My grandfather and his brother purchased the property (in 1890) on which 'Mary's House' was later built. The property has been a gathering point for our family across 6 generations. I currently live in Western MA, but grew up around Cambridge and spent all my childhood summers in Westport.

Ben Yeomans purchased this house in 1920

Great time at Mary's House

  • 5 of 5

The place was great for family gathering: nicely furnished, quiet, beautiful surrounding.

The house has a lot of history and we really appreciated that.

The things we really enjoyed:

- Buy fresh Lobster just down the road at WestPort

- Horseneck Beach

- Barbecue with good stuff from Lee's market.

Peter and Ben provided us all the required guidance to have a great stay.

Idyllic cozy home

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend in Westport for the half marathon in September and had a wonderful experience staying in this cozy home. We had 2 families with small children and my mother even came for one night as well, and we all fit cozily in this home. It is an older home with a long family history, but it is very well maintained and comfortable, does not feel outdated. The single bathroom was the only challenge since our younger kids are in the bathroom frequently, but otherwise we loved everything about the house. The kitchen is great for cooking and there is a large assortment of spices and other nice pantry goods that previous renters or family have left for general use. We had our dinner out on the picnic table on the deck, watching the twilight in the fields and it was lovely. We spent a day at Horseneck Beach which is only a few minutes drive away. We also spent time playing in the lovely garden grass area, and the kids enjoyed some toys which are available in the house. The owners are extremely nice and communicated easily by email, made sure we had all the information and answered any questions. Would recommend this home for families, anyone looking for an idyllic getaway - it's fantastic!

Relaxing and Rustic

  • 5 of 5

Having grown up in Westport I normally stay with my family when I return to the area for a visit. I admit it felt a bit strange renting a property in my hometown...but all of that discomfort was washed away by the warmth and livability of Mary's House. This house is the quintessential New England charmer. It is unpretentious, cozy and comfortable. There was plenty of space and privacy and we really enjoyed having our morning coffee on the porch and watching the wild turkeys and deer pass by. I would recommend this rental to the individual looking for a home away from home and a truly New England experience.
