This is by far our favorite place to stay when we visit the gateway to the Cape. We only had time for a one night stay and wish we could have stayed longer. The owner Paul and his assistant go out of their way to make each stay special. We always feel like visiting family when we stay except they do all the work. This charming home is a perfect slice of history that his been kept in almost original condition. The breakfast side of the B&B is not to be believed. A wonderful presentation of fresh fruit, pastries, eggs, bacon, sausage, bagels, muffins and much more. This all served buffet style in the spacious kitchen and enjoyed in the family dinning room. This is perfect location for those who enjoy walking around enjoying the unique architecture and interesting shops and eateries. We will always return to this warm and friendly B&B.

Management response:

Thank you for the kind words Wade. It was good having you and we do hope to see yo again next year. I hope you were undisturbed by your eartnquakes!

We recently stayed at the Delano Homestead while visiting family in nearby Marion. Our visit was short, only two nights, but we enjoyed our stay very much. The house is located in a lovely section of Fairhaven, convenient to walking to the waterfront and enjoying the sites at nearby Fort Phoenix. Paul and Heidi were both extremely helpful in making us feel right at home. Breakfast was abundant and casual which suited us perfectly. We would definitely recommend this charming B&B to fellow travelers.

Management response:

It was so nice having you here with us. Thank you for the kind words. We look forward to having you here again. Paul

About the neighbourhood
The Delano Homestead is located on a quiet, side street right in the center of Fairhaven's historic, seaside village center. From the house, one can see the beautiful, Romanesque town hall, library, and Gothic-style Unitarian church. It is a few blocks walk to the bike path, working fishing piers, restaurants, and shopping. We are a mile or two from ferries that run to Martha's Vineyard and Cuttyhunk, the New Bedford Whaling Museum, the New Bedford Zoo and the National Historic Park. Take a ten minute ride to Fairhaven's mile-long town beach, and a twenty minute ride to Westport's 20-mile long Horseneck Beach.
We are 20 mins from Cape Cod, 30 mins from Providence, RI and an hour from downtown Boston. We are a three-hour ride to NYC, depending on traffic.
