Had a great couple of days at The Mattapoisett Inn. Deanne is a gracious host and a talented chef. The location is super. The inn feels very much like your home and Deanne endeavors to make sure you feel that way. I stayed in the Nantucket Room, a very comfortable room with it's own private bath and a view overlooking the harbor.
With the front door on Water Street, it's fun to walk down to the town wharf and Shipyard Park. Mattapoisett is a quiet getaway from life's many trials and tribulations. The "Village" boasts many historic homes dating back to whaling times. In fact several whaling captains built homes in Mattapoisett as the town has a sheltered and scenic harbor where a ship might anchor after a long journey.
Since I visited in March and it was bitterly cold, at least for a Southern transplant like myself, I did not avail myself of the gardens, of which our innkeeper is very proud.
I am certain that a trip mid-summer would be a great opportunity to enjoy them, as well as a stroll over to Shipyard Park for music, casting a line out into the harbor for fish or just a walk to the town beach, which is just three minutes down Water Street.
But regardless of your reason to visit, you will find the Inn welcome, the innkeeper charming and your stay pleasant and relaxing.
