Please note: this is a bed and breakfast. The price quoted is per room, (including tax and breakfast). We do try to give a price break for longer stays and multiple rooms.

Interaction with guests
This is a real Bed & Breakfast. The owner lives here and staff come daily. But, we are located in a very quiet and charming area. You can have as much or little interaction with us as you like. We are available to make recommendations, answer any questions, or shoot the breeze. But, we are also aware some guests like privacy and want more of a retreat-like experience. So, it is your call. Let us know if we can be of help.

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.
