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 large Weber Kettle 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 :)

  • 5 of 5

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.

**PERFECT** Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Be prepared for a lengthy review. I can’t say enough good things! This house was perfect for our family. Our teenager and 5 year old boy both loved it! The layout was spread out, so we never felt crowded. The house was clean and nicely decorated, and the beds were super comfy. There was good attention to detail (something as simple as labels on light switches!) to make the stay easy and intuitive for those not familiar with the house. We spent a lot of time outside. Lovely backyard! We kept commenting on how secluded it was, which seems to be a rarity on the densely settled island. Trees and lush vegetation border along the edge of the yard between the neighbor’s house -- you couldn’t even tell there was a house over there. We could catch a glimpse of the ocean from the backyard too, which was nice. There is a great little fire pit that we used several times during our stay, and a charcoal style BBQ, (which the meat-eaters in my family preferred over our gas grill at home). There was some road traffic, not too bad. We would help our son practice riding his bike every day, up and down the street. The walk to the beach was a little longer than 5 minutes; biking it was a breeze. But really, this location is very convenient to the town beach. The beach itself was perfect for our 5 year old. Clean, clear water! Small waves. The beach was clean, but people should understand it is a natural sandy beach, complete with seaweed, stones and shells. Quite nice. West Island is purely residential, and you will not find anything but houses, beaches and salt marsh on the island itself, which we like. Our family likes to Geocache, and there are several hidden right on the island! Within 15 minutes you are in New Bedford, which has an amazing historical district, it’s actually a National Park. We visited the Whaling Museum here, which is worth the trip! From New Bedford, we also took the ferry to Martha’s Vinyard for a day trip. The New Bedford historical district in and of itself would serve for a great day trip. With its old houses and narrow cobblestoned streets, it’s a great area for walking around, browsing the small shops and grabbing something to eat. Lastly, the icing on the cake was the owner, Laurie. Her communication was great! She was friendly and easy-going, and very attentive whenever we had a question. We took a vote on our last day, and it was unanimous – everyone agreed we would stay here again on our next beach vacation!

Great time at Ginger Bay.

  • 4 of 5

The stay was wonderful. The house is neat, clean and very cozy. I would recommend this house to all my friends booking for a week's vacation. Except for the week we want. I am definitely thinking about next year.

Great coastal getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at the GingerBay Inn. Our family and dog enjoyed being close to the beach while still being close to shopping when needed. The property was very clean, well maintained and I would highly recommend anyone looking for a quiet get away come for a visit!

A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

GingerBay Inn on West Island was even better than we expected! The home was so welcoming with so many extra touches. We especially appreciated the movies, games and puzzles provided and our son was very thankful for the wifi connection! The laid-back atmosphere on the island and great location of the cottage contributed to one of our most relaxing and enjoyable family vacations.
