About Suzanne Foxwell
We had talked about buying a piece of property by the water for quite some time and had looked at a few pieces but never really connected with anything. We came to Fairhaven one day to pick something up at West Marine, saw an open house sign and decided to take a look. When we saw the cottage it was structurally sound but did not have any curb appeal. Suzanne immediately saw the potential to make the cottage a very cozy get away spot so an offer was made and accepted and within a couple of months the initial transformation was completed. We put all of the fencing around the property and then Suzanne planted the rose pushes that climb the front fence and planted a flower garden behind the fence. We added a porch on the east end of the property when we first purchased and then in 2010 we decided to remove the outdoor porch and replaced it with a three season room with a large deck above.
Suzanne Foxwell purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Suzanne Foxwell chose Mattapoisett
We like the Fairhaven area because of the ease of getting to places like Newport RI, Plymouth Ma and Cape Cod without living with the crowds that are associated with these areas
What makes this Cottage unique
We like to drive to the bike trail and walk the mile and 1/2 to the center of Fairhaven for breakfast. There are many great restaurants in the South Coast area that we also enjoy. With Buzzards Bay right outside the door, kayaking, sailing, wind surfing and other water activities are enjoyed throughout the summer.

Seaview property is wonderful
I can't imagine a nicer place to stay in Fairhaven, MA. You are right on the bay, your yard ends and the beach begins. You are next to a boat launch if you've got a boat; otherwise, walk in to kayak, paddleboard, or swim. The sunroom is wonderful from the morning sunrise through to the evening. The view over the dining table is out of this world. The upper deck over the sunroom adds more great views and breezes, and has another dining table in the open sea air. The cottage is highly decorated and cozy; compact, but in all ways functional. We loved our stay in August 2017.
Thank you for your kind words about our cottage in Fairhaven, Ma and so glad you enjoyed your stay in August. We agree that the view is outstanding and the seaside activities just a few steps away can keep you entertained all day. We hope to see you again!
Charming, relaxing, best spot! Every view from the gorgeous morning glories to the boats under sunrises and bunnies enjoying their clover..spectacular and truly waterfront :) We're looking forward to next summer already! Donna and Chris :)
Thanks so much for your kind words about the cottage and so glad you enjoyed your stay! Hope to see you back next year!
The cottage is adorable. I thoroughly enjoyed the upper deck, especially being able to sit up there in the sun or the shade, the nearly continuous breeze is fabulous, and I loved the tiny gardens. I appreciated the raft and thoroughly enjoyed my week on Buzzards Bay. Recommendation for Turks Seafood was much appreciated, yes a bit pricey, but you can get fresh fish there daily (cash only) including pre-cooked lobster meat, as well as delicious sushi and other stuff at restaurant portion (cash or credit). We also enjoyed Moby Dick Brewing Company and Quahog's Tavern in New Bedford. Being next to the boat launch also offered some fun people-watching experiences. Thank you!
Thank you so much for your kind words, and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our cottage in Fairhaven. We look forward to a return visit next year! Happy Summer!
charming cottage with water views
My mother and I greatly enjoyed a relaxing week at the cottage, which is decorated charmingly with the owner's painting and seaside knickknacks. We spent a good amount of time just reading on the enclosed porch and the upstairs deck. When we went to the beach, we did find that that local beaches were a little shallow at low tide, and a beach half hour's drive away, Horseneck Beach, had much better swimming. If we could've brought bikes it would have been a lovely place to do some leisurely biking to town and to local beaches. All in all, a great little getaway.
Thank you for your kind words and so glad you and your mom enjoyed your vacation. Have a great summer.
Awesome vacation property!
Lovely beach house with million dollar views , beach front and opportunity to bring your boat or kayak. Rooftop deck for wine and breathtaking views of the vineyard. The bonus sunporch rounded off a perfect vacation spot, we hope to return again next year.
Loved the house
We loved it here. The house was wonderful and very peaceful. We lived in the 3 season room. Also enjoyed sitting up on the deck in the morning having my tea. The owners were must helpful. The only thing I would recommend was to bring beach shoes as the beach is rocky.
