Liked: The location of the Delano Homestead was in a great historical section of Fairhaven with easy walking to restaurants. What was fascinating was the history of the house itself and how beautifully it has been preserved. Any fan of history would be delighted to explore the house that Franklin D. Roosevelt visited often since his grandfather was the proprietor. A thank you to Paul, the Innkeeper, who shared the history and to Melissa who provided a fabulous breakfast!

Elegant historic home in the...
Liked: Paul was a delightful host, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The house is gorgeous, all the rooms are tastefully decorated with period antiques (the top floor bathroom is particularly luxurious!) and the location in the center of historic Fairhaven is perfect for exploring the area. Lots of free parking, walkable to the sights in town and the park at the edge of the ocean. Breakfast was homemade and excellent, and you can enjoy it in the elegant historic dining room. The southern coast of Mass. is every bit as beautiful as the Cape, but less busy, and this is a perfect spot to stay.
Disliked: Wifi was a bit weak in the attic rooms, but hardly a problem if you're trying to get away!

Liked: The house is full of history! It is clean and comfortable, but it is an older house, so make sure you have realistic expectations. Breakfast is a delicious variety of fruits, cereals, eggs, bacon/sausage, fruits, and yogurt. Coffee and tea are available 24/7, and there's a variety of each.

Liked: This is an amazing house. There are many such houses in the New England area, so it takes something special to stand out. This is just such a house. Really amazing history, great details in the home, and managed very well. The staff, Melissa in particular, was incredible. Made our stay and treated us like visiting family. Loved our stay.
Disliked: I failed to have enough time to fully appreciate the house and the neighborhood. There is so much to see and do here. Plan time to really enjoy a historical stay.
