Lovely place. Quiet place. Bed was wonderful, slept like a log. An excellent alternative to overly expensive inns and chain hotels in the New Bedford Area. I spent a peaceful hour outside just enjoying the grounds.

A refined, historic, transitional Federal / Greek Revival Style home with wide-pine floors, 12-foot ceilings, a green house, stone walls and a very central location. Walk to restaurants, bike path, More beach, fishing piers, tennis courts, shops, marinas, and more. Once the homestead of FDR's mother, grandfather and great grandfather, Franklin spent many days here as a child and visited as President. Close to the Martha's Vineyard Ferry, Cape Cod, Newport, Providence, Boston and beaches. Fairhaven is a quintessential New England fishing town. It's shared harbor with New Bedford is the largest income producing fishing port in America with roughly 500 commercial vessels. The Homestead is 2 miles from the New Bedford Whaling Museum, the Seaman's Bethel (featured in Moby Dick), and many local restaurants offering traditional New England seafood as well as Portuguese food. Also in the area are wineries, a zoo, several marinas, whale watching, walking trails and more. Less
