Mattapoisett house description

The house has three rental options. It can be rented as a whole or just the Big House or the Little House. The property has its own private swimming beach shared with both houses.

The Big House is suitable for the summer months from June to mid September. The 6 bedrooms will sleep 12 people with 3 full baths and a 1/2 bath. The Little House will sleep 9 people with 3 full baths and a 1/2 bath during the summer months of June, through September.

Our house is in a quiet, residential area of Mattapoisett good for family reunions or for quiet summer pleasures. We do not allow large parties in the house or outside. No tents or other structures may be erected in the garden without consultation with the manager. There are attractive places for such gatherings in Mattapoisett, Fairhaven and New Bedford.

Mattapoisett is situated between the towns of New Bedford and Marion.

Day excursions in the Buzzard's Bay area are easy and accesses to ferry services to Cuttyhunk, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket are nearby. Other amenities include golf, tennis, sailing, wind surfing or just relaxing in on the beach, in the garden or on the porch of The Big House and the deck of The Little House.

Golf, tennis, boating,wind surfing: There are public golf courses near Mattapoisett and there are public tennis courts in the town or at a public tennis club in Marion, which is a five minute drive on route 6.

Marion and New Bedford have charters for fishing and sightseeing.

If you own a boat, you can make arrangements with the Mattapoisett Boatyard for a guest mooring. No boats are allowed to be launched from our beach except for kayaks, canoes or a rowboat. No boats can be parked on our road.

Windsurfing can be done off the beach at Ned's Point Lighthouse nearby...

                          Year Purchased: 1953

                          About: Our family has enjoyed coming to Mattapoisett for 5 generations. With cousins and friends, sailing, tennis, swimming and excursions to the islands have been some of our favorite activities.

                          Why Mattapoisett:
                          We have always come to Mattapoisett in the summer months. This house has been shared in the past with aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. It is comfortable and functional. You have the typical New England amenities of a house with no pretensions of present day luxury.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          It is a quiet area of town and our neighbors have lived in this area for many years. The location is special and easy for all ages to enjoy. The garden is great for games and there is plenty of room indoors for rainy days. No large festivities, loud noise such as boom boxes allowed most especially in the evenings. It is preferable to entertain a large group with extra guests elsewhere. Tents and other such structures may not be erected in the garden without prior consultation with the manager. Penalties will apply otherwise.
