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. Fairhaven is the quintessential ...
Getting around
Once you are here, you can walk to parks, restaurants and marinas. A car is recommended but not a must-have. Fairhaven Center has shopping, eateries, a bike path, churches, a beach and parks.
