Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
About Suzanne Foxwell
We had talked about buying a piece of property by the water for quite some time and had looked at a few pieces but never really connected with anything. We came to Fairhaven one day to pick something up at West Marine, saw an open house sign and decided to take a look. When we saw the cottage it was structurally sound but did not have any curb appeal. Suzanne immediately saw the potential to make the cottage a very cozy get away spot so an offer was made and accepted and within a couple of months the initial transformation was completed. We put all of the fencing around the property and then Suzanne planted the rose pushes that climb the front fence and planted a flower garden behind the fence. We added a porch on the east end of the property when we first purchased and then in 2010 we decided to remove the outdoor porch and replaced it with a three season room with a large deck above.
Suzanne Foxwell purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Suzanne Foxwell chose Fairhaven
We like the Fairhaven area because of the ease of getting to places like Newport RI, Plymouth Ma and Cape Cod without living with the crowds that are associated with these areas
What makes this Cottage unique
We like to drive to the bike trail and walk the mile and 1/2 to the center of Fairhaven for breakfast. There are many great restaurants in the South Coast area that we also enjoy. With Buzzards Bay right outside the door, kayaking, sailing, wind surfing and other water activities are enjoyed throughout the summer.

This was a great fit for me and the wife. We spent the month of November 2019 and it was fun and relaxing.
Nice end-of-summer stay!
The cottage is really cute, very thoughtful use of the space. We really enjoyed people watching, though that is the reason I only gave 3 stars...not a whole lot of privacy!
On the plus side, if you're a biker the house is close to the many bike paths in the area, and easy access to the town beach which is beautiful.
Overall, a really relaxing week!
Thank you for your review. Sorry that the temporary pickle ball game set up by a neighbor for a couple of days, was so close to the cottage. We spoke to a town official about this, and they have assured us that this will not be an on-going occurrence. Our apologies again if it caused you any inconvenience.
Best and most relaxing view
Thoroughly enjoyed the top deck. We had great weather for August. So the ocean breezes almost made me ok without air conditioning. (I guess I’m a bit spoiled).
Family vacation 2019
We had a wonderful time staying at Suzanne’s property.
The house was very cute and quaint and the perfect size for our young children.
Paradise, heaven, relaxing and convenient
Everything was wonderful
Cottage on the Bay
Great cottage for the 2 of us right on a small beach popular with locals. There’s also a boat launching ramp which was always busy with the locals as well. Nice views across Buzzards Bay, plenty of Ospreys and other wildlife to entertain us. Especially wonderful to watch sitting or sunning yourself on the upper balcony deck.
The house has all you need really for a relaxing vacation and there’s many local seafood places to eat or shop for yourselves.
Locals say the area is a hidden gem and we can certainly agree with them.
So glad you enjoyed your vacation at our cottage. Hope you enjoy the rest of your time in Boston as well!
Wonderful location with many restaurants to choose from within a five mile radius. Grocery shopping and liquor stores minutes away as well.
