WELCOME TO THE DISTINCTIVE COTTAGE COLLECTION ON WEST ISLAND AND SCONTICUT NECK PRESENTED BY HOWE ALLEN REALTY.
The Chadwick was built in 2001 and has been lovingly maintained and updated through the years. It features vernacular design and construction materials and is furnished with both antiques and comfortable upholstered furniture.
The U-shaped kitchen is perfectly arranged and has all the usual kitchen appliances and conveniences including range, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave oven. The open-concept living and dining area open onto a lovely sunroom overlooking the landscaped rear yard and deck. Built-ins conceal the electronics which include a flat-screen TV and cable and WiFi.
The master bedroom with king-sized bed and the guest room with two twin trundle beds are found upstairs along with the large full bathroom. The bathroom features a custom shower and separate bathtub. Large closets are available in both bedrooms.
In the rear yard, a lovely pergola offers shade on the rear patio. A brand-new outdoor shower and BBQ further enhance the outdoor living space.
In the event of inclement weather that affects electricity service, an automatic backup generator kicks in to ensure the resident continued access to appliances, heat and AC.
A little information about the area:
West Island is one of the South Coast's best kept secrets. Located in Buzzard's bay, this small residential-only Island offers the visitor and resident peace and quiet or access to any number of action-packed pursuits.
Over half the island is State Conservation land offering many nature trails, wildlife viewing and truly impressive vistas. There are several choices for ocean access; the protected water (bayside) beach or the Buzzard's Bay beach (voted the #3 town beach in all of New England).
Originally farmland, the past two centuries have seen West Island gradually change to a vacation destination for locals who know what a gem they have so close to home. It is not uncommon to meet others during your stay who have been vacationing here for decades or who's family has owned the same home for nearly a century.
While maintaining its charm, West Island has also kept pace with technology. City Water and Sewer, high-speed internet, satellite television are just some of the amenities you will find while on our island.
Within 4 miles you will find two large supermarket chains, department stores as well as other well-known chain establishments. West Island is a mere 60 minutes from Boston, 45 minutes from Newport and under half an hour from the Bourne or Sagamore bridges.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Very clean well supplied house. They thought of everything. Beautiful weather and enjoyed walks to beach. Great area - peaceful and beautiful.
The house was beautiful and very clean. A/C works well. The owners really thought of everything in their info book - very thoughtful! The HoweAllen Realty was easy to communicate with. West Island is a quiet area, but the town beach is perfect for a private beach experience, and is close to Newport, Falmouth, and Martha's Vineyard. Overall, we had a perfect time at Chadwick's.
We had a wonderful time @ the Chadwick's on west islsnd in Fairhaven Ma. We really enjoyed the house and had a great time on the island swimming and exploring the back of the island . This is our 11th summer on west islsnd (with my family) we enjoy it so much we go back every year.
House met all of our needs. Clean and well furnished (except low on TP). Owners thought of just about everything to have handy in the house. Even had a tiny bed in the master closet for our 2 year old which was a pleasant surprise. Beautiful location on West Island; peaceful neighborhood with access to low trafficked, scenic, dog-friendly beaches.
The only thing I would mention is that there is no hot tub or hammock. They are not mentioned in the included amenities but they are there in the pictures. Probably didn't need a hot tub in the middle of summer but was looking forward to the hammock. Still an overall good experience though.
Beautifully maintained cottage near the water, very comfortably set up. The island is very quiet and non-commercial, a big plus! Gorgeous sunsets over the water and marsh. The only downside is the ductless air in the master bedroom and window unit in the spare bedroom were noisy, making it hard to sleep while they were running. It was a very hot week and most weeks it's unlikely you would need A/C at night. The cottage is a sparkling little jewel.
