“Just great...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

I took my 19-year old son to New Bedford on an overnight. He had never been to a bed & breakfast. I'm so happy we stayed here. It was perfect and will forever live in his memory as what B&Bs should be like. Hosts John & Marlene couldn't have been more welcoming and warm. It doesn't get better than this.

Hosts John and Marlene know New Bedford, they know the important role it had in the Underground Railroad, and they are dedicated to sharing with visitors. Their home is lovely, food was terrific, hospitality the best. Location very convenient. We can't wait to have a reason to return!

I have been going to New Bedford Massachusetts for the past several years. My most pleasant experience has been at Dasvenport House. The family is extremely sweet, open and caring. They have an excellent morning breakfast. The room is lovely and the bathroom an experience. I would recommend the master bedroom. Give yourself a chance to enjoy the shower sauna.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2010

We had a wonderful one-night stay here and enjoyed every minute of it. John and Marlene went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, making dinner reservations for us and advising us about what to see and do while in town. The house is a gorgeous Victorian house, a step back in time, which they keep white-glove clean and tastefully decorated. Our room was more spacious and comfy than any other B & B room we've been to, and we slept like we were at home. A previous reviewer said this place was "awful," but I think he/she must have stayed somewhere else. That review could not be further from the truth....We had a terrific time and will surely return to this great place.

We had 2 fabulous nights at the Davenport House. The house is gorgeous, our room was spotless, and Marlene and John, the hosts, are the most courteous innkeepers I've ever met. The house is very tastefully decorated (free of the knick-knak overkill of many B&Bs) and the gardens are gorgeous. The house is walking distance to New Bedford's downtown and historic sites. A wonderful place to stay!

  • Liked — Warmth and hospitality of the hosts
  • Disliked — No drawbacks!
