Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: The Nicolson Family are Fairhaven residents since 1990. We enjoy biking, discovering funky finds at antique shops and yard sales, gardening, and a good ol' game of wiffleball!

Why the Owner Chose Fairhaven, MA, USA:
The Nicolson family moved from the Cape to Fairhaven in 1990 and began summering on Wilbur's Point. Once we found this cottage, we knew it was the one. 'Seekhaven' as we call it was one of the original early 1900's cottages in a summer colony developed by Herbert Horatio Wilbur. The cottage is ingrained in the history of the town, and photographs can be found of the home dating back to the hurricane of 1938 when many of the cottages were destroyed but ours withstood. The home has been a place of retreat for the family to unplug, unwind, and enjoy the quiet life by the sea.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Seekhaven is unique because our home is situated as close to the water as possible behind the safety of a sea wall at the edge of the lawn. Many of the newer homes on the point had new building regulations that required them to be built farther from the water's edge and many raised on stilts. You can watch the sun rise from the living room couches or while laying in bed, allowing the warmth and light to wake you instead of an alarm.
