The story as told...
In 2000 a home was built with panoramic views of the harbor, fishing vessels and a cozy marina, all on the Acushnet River.
A sturdy dock, or pier, was built beckoning all seafarers seeking a brief respite where their vessels can be seen under their watchful eyes. Bring your dinghy right up to the float and ramp to the dock. Ecco, the gentle Golden Retriever, will greet you as you arrive, often with a shoe or toy and a great big smile!
The Stone Patio provides a fabulous vantage point to watch the sun set, the fishing vessels and recreation boaters, and even a whale boat or two!
So explore, or relax...
Historic Fairhaven offers harbor tours, the New Bedford Whaling Museum, close proximity to ferry boats for Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket and Cuttyhunk Island; awesome restaurants and the freshest of fish and scallops from the local fishing fleets. Buzzards Bay and oh so much more...
Paddle your kayak, canoe or rowboat; wave to the Buzzards Bay Rowing Club teams as they train in the early morning or join the festival sprint races in the fall and try your hand at rowing a whale boat.
Discover where Joshua Slocum rebuilt his sloop the Spray before circumnavigating the world solo; Discover when John Manjiro became the first Japanese to live in America and how Henry H. Rogers was Fairhaven's great benefactor and close friend of Mark Twain.
For those more laid-back guests, sip your favorite libation, relax at the end of the dock and watch the sky become ablaze of color as the sun sets below the horizon.
In addition enjoy other options:
- A waterfront expanse with a 180 degree view of the harbor
- A catered breakfast or dinner for your wedding party
- Evening cocktails with lights dancing across the harbor
- A place for you & your family and friends to meet, a waterfront retreat
