The SpaceMajor supermarkets and shopping is just a 10 min drive. Westport is also just a 1hr drive to Boston. The house is very comfortable and welcoming. There is a kitchen, dining room and living room upstairs in addition to two of the bedrooms and full bath. The other bedroom is downstairs and has a twin bed and queen bed, which are a bunkbed and a double buton. with the half bath, laundry room and common area. Guest AccessThe entire house with the exception of the master bedroom, garage, and a couple of closets that will be locked and off limits. Guests are welcome to use the yard and back deck area, but please be respectful of the neighbors. Interaction with GuestsI will usually be in the area. My mother, who is the real owner of the house is sometimes out of the country, but my siblings are I are closeby. The NeighborhoodIt is a very quiet and family friendly neighborhood. Westport is still significantly a farm town in addition to being a beautiful beach town. Horseneck beach as well as some of the other local beaches certainly rival the cape cod beaches and have some of the warmest water to speak of in New England due to it's positioning. Some celebrities have made appearances in the town and people like Billy Joel have summer homes in the town. Getting AroundPublic transportation to Boston is available from Fall River (bus). The closest commuter rail is Lakeville. Providence is a half hour away by car or bus service from Fall River. Newport is a 20- 25 min drive, Other Things to NoteLinens and towels are provided. Guests are welcome to park in the long driveway.
Feel free to use the items in the refrigerator. Dishes and bowls are to the right of the fridge and glasses are to the right of the sink. Towels are in the closet by the upstairs bathroom. Please refrain from entering and using the upstairs bedroom at the end of the hall on the left as well as the garage, which is not set up for guest use. You are welcome to use the laundry room.

Horseneck Beach is part of the state park system and is about a 10 min drive down route 88. (URL HIDDEN)
You might also want to visit Westport Vineyards, which is a beautiful spot and not far from the beach. They have outdoor concerts with local food vendors (oysters, bbq, wine, beer, etc) on Friday and sometimes Saturdays, but tickets sell fast so you must reserve them ahead of time. It is one ticket per vehicle. (URL HIDDEN)
