About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 full Bath, Sleeps 5-6, WIFI

The GingerBay Inn is located on West Island, Fairhaven, MA. Enjoy walking to the Town Beach from this water-view location.

The cottage offers 2 bedrooms, one with a queen and a twin bed and the other with 2 twin beds. Beds are soooo comfortable!!! The bedrooms, bathroom and laundry room are all off a hallway so that noise and privacy are not a factor. The living room has a comfy couch and love-seat that overlook the fireplace. There are 2 Smart TVs, WIFI, fully equipped kitchen, full bath, bath towels and linens provided, (please bring your own beach towels).

Sun porch is a perfect spot for morning coffee or evening cocktails. There are plenty of books, magazines, DVDs and games/puzzles for those lazy days. The yard features a gas grill & picnic table in a grassy sunny or shady area and a fire-pit. Included are all laundry supplies, dish washing soap/sponge and hand soaps. I will try to accommodate any special requests....just ask :)

Autumn on West Island

  • 5 of 5

I am now part of the most Fortunate group who have had the wonderful opportunity to spend time at the Ginger Bay Inn on West Island!

October finds the sun still warming for outside time and the nights cooler for sleeping and this comfortable Home affords you all amenities to do so without losing its Charm! Also, the pace of Life seems to slow down as soon as you arrive at this Home! It is Lovely!

The Owner was Always Responsive and Caring!

I enjoyed many walks around the Island as well as time sitting by the Beach. And, as others have mentioned, you are not too far away from restaurants and stores- the best of both worlds, really!

Also, it was a pleasure to sit in the side yard since, even though, you are a part of a neighborhood with homes on either side, the side yard with picnic table and fire pit affords you some privacy and shade because of the way the Home is situated.

We also happened to have a strong Nor'easter during my time and this Sturdy Home stood just fine as very Strong Winds and Rain prevailed!! All was fine!

The set-up of the Home is perfect with the Living Room and Kitchen towards the front of the Home and the spacious Bathroom, Laundry Room and 2 good sized bedrooms more at the back of the Home.

I enjoyed every moment in this Charming, Comfortable Home and I can not wait to return!

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, clean, and comfortable. My husband, one year old, myself and Mother-in-Law stayed at the Gingerbay Inn for a week. Laurie was very helpful from the welcome book to answering any other questions we had. The home is comfortable, relaxing, quiet and was just what we were looking for.

The labels on the light switches really helped through the house and my toddler loved being able to watch his shows on Netflix. We brought our two fur babies with us and they enjoyed the backyard and the walks.

You're not far from town staying at the Gingerbay but do have some feeling of privacy. The road is mostly quiet and you will pass other people walking down the road with their families or pets. Everyone is really nice. This helped make our stay in MA all that more comfortable.

Great, quiet location for our family!

  • 5 of 5

House was in a perfect location. We loved that the island was not crowded and the town beach was never busy! In the evening, we would bring our dog down to enjoy the beach. The house was just the right size and had all the amenities we needed! We are already talking about coming back next summer!!

Great location. Lots of things to see and do within driving distance. So nice and quiet. Our dogs loved walking on the beach. So much nicer than staying in motels. I even did our laundry.
