We had such a great time in this beautiful home! Tons of space-perfect for a group of family and/or friends with all of the supplies and materials you would need! We spent most of our time outside on the amazing deck-playing games, bbqing and watching the sun rise and set! Highly highly highly recommended!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

You could spend a million days sitting on that deck, in the same spot and see something different each time. This house has a great feeling to it and makes you feel relaxed immediately. And even the kids loved it. They played outside for hours, allowing there imaginations to take over.

Wonderful Rental!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 excellent weeks here. House is equipped to the max. Sunsets on the massive deck were grand! Close to many things. Did a day trip to MV. Ventured to Hyannis( too crowded). Took the harbor cruise in New Bedford ( great!). Favorite was dinner tavern in Mattapoisett. What a charming town. The house has fun kayaks and croquet and bocce etc etc etc ! I would highly recommend this place.

Beautiful sunsets

  • 4 of 5

The inside spaces looking out into the bay made for a special weeks vacation. The full deck is getting a little tired and is sparsely furnished, but offers spectacular sunsets. There are many amenities in the house, especially outdoor games,kayaks. bikes, row boat that allow you to pack a little lighter. Tics jump out at you as you walk the path to the bay, check your kids often but mosquitos were not a problem ( though biting flies were). We tried several beaches and were disappointed until we hit Horseneck beach; (West Island and the town beach we left after only an hour). The spaciousness of the home allowed for many guests comfortably but this house could use a little updating to its tired decor and towels that didn't look like they were salvaged from Goodwill. We usually vacation on Cape Anne and will probably return there in the future.

Waterfront, Sunset Views, and Family Friendly are highlights of this property!

  • 4 of 5

Eleven of us visited this multi-storied waterfront home and we enjoyed the views and sunsets from the wraparound deck. The sleeping accommodations were excellent and the kitchen had everything and more. The grounds are lush but there is a walkway to the waterfront. The location is central to the Cape, Boston, and Providence with easy access to highways but still retaining the small town feel with shops of all kinds. New Bedford is nearby across the bridge and offers boat tours of all kinds (fishing, etc) if you plan in advance.
