Mattapoisett Center House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our Beachside carriage home with waterviews in historic Mattapoisett Village is located just across the street from Barstow Wharf and Town Beach. Imagine starting your day on the NEW DECK off the Master bedroom enjoying a spectacular sunrise over the harbor. Just across the street is Town beach with lifeguards, swimming dock, swing sets, a bath house and the perfect place to find a piece of sea glass. Or enjoy a stroll through the charming village, taking in historic homes from 18th & 19th century whaling and shipbuilding days. If you're feeling energetic, take a bike ride to Fairhaven on the Bike Path, or a run to Ned's Point Lighthouse. There's also boating, sightseeing, tennis, golf, shopping and dining opportunities - the day is yours! You may want to kick back and enjoy the sea breezes on the NEW WRAP AROUND PORCH. However you choose to spend your day, we encourage you to be back in time to enjoy a glorious sunset from either the new porch, new deck or patio. "Mother of Pearl" time on the harbor is magical!

Our restored 1800s carriage home has plenty of space for couples, families and groups to relax and reconnect. The open floor plan provides several sitting areas inside as well as waterviews and lots of seating on the porch, deck and patio. We strive to provide our guests with what they need for a wonderful vacation: bikes, beach chairs, cooler, new gas grill, books, games, wifi and information on local restaurants and suggested day trips.

The house has central A/C, lots of great light from windows and skylights, hardwood floors throughout, a large, well equipped eat in kitchen. The dining table comfortably sits eight. The first floor bedroom with double bed has an en suite bathroom. The upstairs Master with king bed enjoys waterviews, an en suite bathroom and private deck. Two additional bedrooms upstairs, each with a queen bed, share a 'jack and jill' bathroom. Renovations include newly painted walls, trim, doors and ceilings, new light fixtures, recessed lighting, new windows, new skylights, new doors, new rugs & furniture. There is a full size washer and dryer for guests to use, another half bath and a great flat yard for relaxing or playing family games. Our outdoor shower is a family favorite!

We are steps from Shipyard Park and the main town wharfs where you will find boating activities, Wednesday night band concerts, festivals, restaurants, a general store, the ice cream slip, spa, shops and a Historical Museum. Kayaking, sailing, windsurfing and fishing are available nearby or plan a day trip to Boston, Providence, Plymouth, New Bedford, Newport, Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket.

We encourage you to read reviews from past guests who share what they enjoy about Mattapoisett, our property and the personal touches we provide, including upgraded linens, kitchen supplies, local information and games.

We have enjoyed hosting family reunions, groups attending local weddings, family summer vacations as well as romantic weekend getaways for two. We welcome you to celebrate at our Treasure by the Sea!

Great Weekend, Wonderful Home and Owners

  • 5 of 5

This house was truly perfect. My family and another rented this home while in town for a local event and it was absolutely gorgeous. The owners were responsive and a pleasure to deal with, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend the weekend. The kitchen, bedrooms and layout of the overall home is really great, and we're looking forward to spending another weekend next fall,

We attended a wedding across the street and wanted our family of five to get together for a mini-vacation. Growing up in the area before moving to Philadelphia I already knew the location was great but the feeling we had when opening the door to Treasure By The Sea was the making of a commercial. The property was spotless inside and out. Great communication by the owners with emails/phone and the book provided right next to the "surprise gift" gave us all the information we needed to feel right at home. Open and spacious, the first floor seemed to go on and on. Everyone had their own room with a bathroom attached and all of the beds where VERY comfortable. We usually stay with family (which we enjoy) when visiting the area but to host the extended family for cocktails on the patio before walking the 75 yards to the wedding was wonderful. My local family were all very impressed and have asked for the owners contact information for when they have guests visiting from out of town. The home had all the amenities needed and then some. We did take advantage of the whole house A/C just to take the humidity out of the air and then shut it down to enjoy the cooler night breezes. And if your trying to decide who should get the master suite... make sure it's you!

Thanks Jeff and Lauren (and Barbara for the cookies) for helping make our stay a memorable one.

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

"Treasure by the Sea" is a perfect name for this home. I cannot thank you enough for sharing your beautiful home. My 88 year old mom along with my 17 month old granddaughter enjoyed our daughters wedding with all the comforts of home. Everything was above and beyond what we expected. Mattapoisett is such a beautiful area and we enjoyed the view from every window in the house as well as walking the neighborhood. We hope to rent your home again.

Thanks again, Guests from Michigan

Five star rating for sure!

perfect property!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a bright, open, relaxing and inviting home to serve as a base for a very busy week. It was exactly as promised! The pictures don't really do it justice. The neighborhood is truly beautiful, and the neighbors are warm and friendly. The owners are helpful and very easy to work with. We would highly recommend!

Great Location and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a family gathering vacation. The home is spacious and well-appointed giving privacy when needed and has a restful ambiance. We loved the convenience to the Village and life-guarded beach. Our local relatives could visit for the day and we didn't feel the least bit crowded. Lunches and/or cocktails on the patio looking at the harbor were relaxing. Our week was so enjoyable that we wish we could have stayed all summer! For us, this home more than lived up to the listing presentation.

Historic Mattapoisett is a charming, traditional old whaling village located an hour south of Boston and 45 minutes north of Providence and Newport, Rhode Island. Access to Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket & Plymouth is easy by car, ferry and boat. There are plenty of wonderful day trips to plan as well as enough relaxing activities to do right here. Take time to relax at town beach, directly across the street or enjoy the harbor views and watch the boating activity right from the front yard. Mattapoisett has many wonderful restaurants to enjoy, a bike trail, weekly summer band concerts & various festivals throughout the year. There are tennis courts in town, several golf courses in the areas as well as local kayak and boat rentals.

Here's a portion of an article recently published in the Boston Globe about Mattapoisett: "Go East, young man (And Woman). And just before you reach Cape Cod, you'll find the quaint seaside village of Mattapoisett. The area smacks of Old New England, Yankee fishing villages with narrow streets, tall proud homes and gulls o'er the rooftops. The best part of the area is it's natural beauty: the mouth of the harbor, the expanse of ocean, the wharf, the boats, the birds. Smell the ocean. Look for sea glass. Skip rocks. Take photos. Bring your bike, your kids, your kayak. Bring a football, a Frisbee, a kite. Or just bring a cup of coffee and look out over the water. Mattapoisett's Water Street, in particular, is gorgeous, no matter the time of year, with ocean views along the entire length. Ned's Point at Veteran's Memorial Park is a stunning swath of shore and meadow to picnic, toss a ball, fly a kite, windsurf or watch the sun go down beyond majestic Ned's Point Lighthouse. Built during the heyday of the whaling era, circa 1838, the stone tower at the entrance to Mattapoisett Harbor is also on the National Register of Historic Places. Another Mattapoisett landmark is the nearly 40-foot seahorse at the intersection of Rt. 6 and North Street. Dubbed "Salty the Seahorse" by locals, the roadside icon stands near Dunseith Gardens - a playground, garden and nature walk maintained by the Mattapoisett Land Trust."

Water Street, with the "gorgeous water views", is right in front of our home and all of these other places mentioned in the article are within walking distance of our "Treasure By The Sea."
