About the Property

Sleeps 16, 8 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2-half baths, wraparound porch, dock

Savor the tranquil views to Horseneck Beach and the Atlantic ocean from your family-friendly perch on the west branch of the Westport River in Westport Harbor, Axoacet.

The showcase house sleeps 16 guests and is great for family reunions or a vacation with your favorite family friends. The house features a wraparound porch, with mesmerizing water views, a 5-minute walk to the beach, a gorgeous deep-water dock outfitted with mahogany seating from which to launch your boat, paddle board or kayak, and a picturesque spot to swim and enjoy evening cocktails watching the sunset. A sweeping backyard to the water is perfect for family softball games, croquet, volleyball, frisbee, and kite flying. Two bedrooms have private decks overlooking the water.

The turn-of-the-century house sleeps 16 people; 8 bedrooms, including 4 bedrooms with double/queen beds (one with full bath and one with 1/2 bath), two with private decks facing the river. This house makes memories. Come armed with cameras, watercolors and fishing rods.

Steps away from Knubble Beach (no lifeguard).

Westport boasts superb, local farm stands with some of the freshest and finest summer vegetables a cook could dream of plus amazing local seafood. Westport and neighboring Tiverton, Little Compton, Adamsville, Newport, New Bedford and Fall River are a foodie's delight with a unique selection of local restaurants, all informal and delicious.

This is also an ideal base for cyclists with spectacular rides and views to match.

TV, cable, DVD, Wifi, outdoor grill, outdoor shower, gorgeous landscaping, wisteria pergola, hydrangea borders, ample parking, dock, beach chairs and boogie boards galore.

Bounded by the Westport River and the Atlantic ocean, there is great swimming, boating and beach walks. Views to the Cuttyhunk and Martha's Vineyard on a clear day. A wonderful place to explore area attractions including Westport River Winery, Buzzard's Bay Brewing, the town of Little Compton, RI, the Whaling Museum in New Bedford, mansions of Newport, nature preserves to roam, the Portuguese cuisine and outlet shopping in Fall River, movies, bumper boats, mini golf and shopping in Dartmouth and more.

 

Manager info

About: We have been spending our summers in Westport for over 30 years. It is the gathering point for our extended family members who have lived across two continents. We cherish this magical spot on the river where it is hard to tear yourself away from the peaceful views from the porch and decks, watching the boats go out to the ocean and back to the harbor. Sunrise and sunsets are just stunning. The water is always in sight.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Water views, steps to ocean and beach, large lawn for family games, phenomenal cycling, swim off the deep-water dock, great breakfast and espressos down the road. Ice cream stands galore and peaceful, low-key location.
