Exceptionally well maintained 1835 grand house in Fairhaven's historic district, amid Fairhaven's outstanding public buildings, restaurants and marinas. It is a five minute drive from the New Bedford to Nantucket / Martha's Vineyard fast ferries. Paul the owner was engaging, generously explained the history of the Delano Homestead, had excellent information for touring the surrounding area, and was immediately responsive to our requests. The house was quiet, our room quite comfortable, the shared areas elegant and the breakfast healthy and hearty.
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.
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.
