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."
