Fairhaven house description
Fairhaven, Massachusetts is a lovely seaside community on the shore of Buzzards Bay, directly across the harbor from the famed whaling port of New Bedford. Fairhaven is located halfway between Cape Cod, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island, affording vacationers access to the best of both worlds for day trips in all directions!
This beautiful, quaint ranch home was completely redone in 2006 and sits on three private oceanfront acres. Inside you will find a brand new, fully applianced kitchen, CENTRAL air conditioning, gas fireplace and big screen HDTV with built in DVD player. The master bedroom has a brand new queen-size bed. Bedroom two has new bunkbeds with a double-size bed below and a twin-size above. Bedroom three has a new twin bed with a pullout twin trundle below it. One full bath with shower/tub. Brand new hardwood floors throughout. In the basement is a full-size washer and dryer.
From the back deck you can watch the boats as they head from Buzzards Bay in and out of New Bedford Harbor. Because Sconticut Neck is surrounded by ocean on three sides, there is always a refreshing ocean breeze. A private beach is at the end of the property, and the town of Fairhaven has public beaches as well.

Fairhaven Vacation House
Fairhaven Vacation House
We very much enjoyed our time at this Fairhaven vacation house. Everything was as it is listed on the website and the owners were great to work with. The house is bright, open, clean and very comfortable. Everything seemed newly renovated. It's location is quiet and private, yet close enough to the highway to get anywhere in Southeastern Mass easily. We loved the deck with it's view of the bay. The huge backyard was great for our kids to play ball and we loved having the private beach within walking distance with plenty of shells to collect. We'd highly recommend this vacation rental.

About the owner: Mike and Debbie Smoske live within 1 hour of this beachfront property. This home has been in Mike's family for many years. When ownership passed to Mike in 2006, major renovations where begun to make this truly a relaxing and inviting environment. In fact, Mike and Debbie hope to retire here within the next ten years. This home is full of happy memories for Mike and Debbie, their two teenage children, and their extended family.
Why the Owner Chose Fairhaven:
Fairhaven, Massachusetts is a special community. It is an old whaling port, sitting on New Bedford Harbor. Oil tycoon Henry Huttleston built many of the town properties, including the town hall and high school, and their architecture is exquisite. Also, Fairhaven offers the tranquil environment of Cape Cod, but none of the Cape Cod traffic. It is central to both Cape Cod and Providence/Newport Rhode Island, offering a great jumping off point for any local day trips!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
My favorite thing to do at this home is sit on the back covered deck and drink my coffee as I watch the fishing boats and Martha's Vineyard ferries steam in and out of New Bedford Harbor. Also, because the Sconticut Neck area is mostly protected conservation area, the chance to see varied wildlife is terrific.
