Westport has a strategic location that makes it easy to reach historic and sought-after destinations. Gooseberry and Cuttyhunk Islands are colonial treasures that showcase the first English settlements. Lighthouse tours or grabbing some sun on the beaches is a favorite tourist pastime. Renowned Martha’s Vineyard is close enough to savor with a coastal drive before taking a ferry.

  • Gooseberry Island: This southern lookout island has two beaches with Horseneck in the north and East Beach to the south. Bring plenty of suntan lotion and sunglasses during the summer. Bird watching enthusiasts will be able to add numerous entries to their journal with the migration of Warblers, Snowy Owl, Egrets, Swallows, and others. Mole crabs also add an interesting twist to the hub of activity.
  • Cuttyhunk Island: Plan on spending the day in this island wonderland that is part of the Elizabeth Islands. There are beaches for sunbathing or bird watching the famed Massachusetts American oystercatchers and others. Indigenous wildflowers, sweet peas, and bayberry dart the landscape. Bring or rent fishing gear to try your hand at catching the next world-record striped bass off Sow and Pigs Reef. Hike to Lookout Hill with views of the entire island.
  • Martha’s Vineyard: The name of this special place says it all. It is located an hour away after a scenic ride along the coast of Massachusetts. The final leg includes a ferry ride that offers the chance for a bit of whale watching. Once there, take a deep sea charter out for exceptional bluefish or striped bass fishing. Beaches such as Chappaquiddick line a vast swath of the island with a bevy of water sports to engage in. Sailboats can be chartered for a waterside tour. Downtown Edgartown offers shopping and dining opportunities after a tour of the harbor and five lighthouses in the area.

Stroll through the cobble stone streets eating homemade ice cream or enjoying a meal at an outdoor café.

The location is incredible -- water views on three sides. (I was concerned that being on an active wharf in a fishing village might be too noisy, but excessive noise was not a problem.) The property is furnished beautifully. It was comfortable and bright even on a rainy day. It's great location from which to explore the many attractions of the area -- or just to stay in and watch the boats on the Westport River from one of the decks. The kitchen is very well appointed. Kristin (the owner) was very responsive to any questions that arose during our stay. We particularly enjoyed the well-stocked coffee bar.

We did family type activities taking walks, going to the beach, cookouts, and old fashioned games. Nonquitt is a very quiet, friendly, and safe community. We wish we had found out about this cottage sooner. The listing description was accurate regarding the location, layout, and amenities. This is a very clean property and very well maintained. The owner is very welcoming and makes sure that your stay is exceptional. The owner is both very professional and provides excellent service. Yes I would recommend this property to friends and relatives.
