What a find!
My sister and I had a great stay at Sky House. Very comfy, cosy, wonderful views. We had a bedroom each, and there is a handy half-bath upstairs, not listed. We enjoyed the warm fall weather on the deck overlooking the ocean, then spent most of our time cycling, and walking the wonderful unspoilt beaches of the area. We loved West Island, Demarest Lloyd, Horseneck Beach, Gooseberry Island, Allens Pond Mass Audubon - never even made it to the Phoenix bike trail or the many beautiful historic buildings right in Fairhaven, or the whaling museum! We took our own food and ate most meals in (the kitchen is well-equipped) but there are plenty of restaurants and markets in Fairhaven. We took the ferry over to Cuttyhunk Island - be warned after Labor Day everything is closed up tight (take your own food!). We found the whole area to be uncrowded and untouristy, and will definitely be back. Only 87 miles, an easy drive from my Central Mass home.
Fabulous time in Fairhaven!
This property was absolutely wonderful for our weeklong stay in Fairhaven. It has beautiful sunrise/sunset views of the ocean and is everything that is described above. Peter was gracious and very helpful with any questions that we had. We would highly recommend this to anyone needing to get away. We hope to come and visit again in the future.
The place is exactly as described and pictured. :) The owner was super helpful and very easy to work with.
The house itself has beautiful views and the washer/dryer made packing a breeze.
We will definitely be returning.
Lovely spot, lovely people
My oldest friend and I have been taking a long weekend away every January for years. When our B&B closed we had to find a new spot and decided to try a rental. We've already signed up to return next year.
This is a bright, lovely, simple house in a beautiful spot. The kitchen is well-supplied, the beds are comfortable, the living room has everything you need. It is neat, clean, and cozy, and built with an eye to beauty and simplicity. Views in every direction, wonderful light.
The host is friendly and welcoming but in no way intrusive. We are so happy to have found this little gem.
Charming Cottage and the Perfect Location
We stayed at the "Sky House" cottage for four wonderful days! The cottage is charming, neat as a pin, perfect views and so so cozy. Great sunrises right outside your window and fabulous views.
We visited West Island which is accessible within 1/2 a mile from the cottage, saw beautiful historic downtown Fairhaven, a day trip to the Cape with a walk along the Cape Cod Canal, simply relaxing and enjoying the views.
The owner, Peter, was very helpful with recommendations and directions, etc. We would definitely recommend this property. As the owner states in the ad, there are steep stairs up to the 2nd floor, so if this is a concern for you, do heed the advice.
My daughter and I had a wonderful stay in this cottage. It is very neat and clean, charming but not fussy, comfortable and cozy. The kitchen is well-equipped, so we ate most of our meals there, though we went in to town (to the restaurant "99") for one dinner. The rest of the time was spent sitting on the deck or walking in the picturesque, quiet neighborhood. There is also a nice television with cable. The cottage is just as shown in the photos, with lots of windows and unbelievable views. The owner, who lives nearby, was friendly and easy to work with. I would look forward to staying here again.
One note: There are steep stairs up to the sleeping areas, so I wouldn't recommend it for young children or anyone who has trouble with climbing or balance.
