Our place is on a private lane over the dune from a private beach on the Atlantic Ocean. It is located near a fine restaurant, within a short ride to Newport and Providence RI, an hour from Boston, MA. and a shorter distance to New Bedford, MA with ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Cuttyhunk and connections to Nantucket Island.

The space

This unit is one of very few in Westport that has access to a private, sandy beach on the Atlantic Ocean by car and foot.

Guest access

Guests can enjoy a yard and access to west branch of the Westport River by foot as well as in the past a luscious private vegetable/flower garden. The gardener often will share available produce with guests.

Interaction with guests

My husband and I live across the driveway from the Carriage House and are usually available if needed. In case of an emergency, we are available 24/7.

Other things to note

My guess the only thing that may impact a guest's stay is the weather. Beach people will be happy with warm temperatures, a small breeze and sun. Boating people will like fairly calm seas. In case of rain, there are places that stay dry to explore nearby(museums, galleries, wineries, shops, a library and restaurants).

Gerry was such a great host. The house was very clean and the beach is just a 5 minute walk from the house. We would be back again for sure!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful, quiet, peaceful stay at Gerry's place. It was very clean and comfortable, and the private sandy beach was a (very) short drive away, and very nice - clean, and not too crowded at all. We would absolutely stay again.

A great beach getaway. Westport is not a tourist trap, just a pure beach destination. Bring food with you, the market is not close and there aren't many restaurants! Comfy place, walking path to a private beach. They even provided beach chairs and towels as well as a washer/dryer.

Gerry's carriage house is exactly as described. It's quiet and clean and being so close to a private beach, it's perfect for beach-lovers. We loved biking on the country roads and then walking or biking to the Back Eddy for dinner. The house has everything you need and it's nice that it's separate from the main house so you don't feel like you're disturbing anyone. I'm a morning person so this didn't bother me but if you like to sleep in, you'll need to plan ahead so that you can wash/dry/fold the bed linens before your 10am check-out. There is a washer & dryer right in the carriage house so that is very convenient. I would stay here again. Thank you, Gerry!

G'Morning Jo, Am taking that 10:00am check-our under advisement. Wondering if a 11:00am check-out would be better with a later, say, 3:00pm check-in. Hate to mess with everyone's day: guest in, guest-out, and tidying up help. Had tried to salvage a day or part of a weekend day for everyone. Working on it and thanks for that reminder.

This is a great little spot with everything you need for a fun beach weekend. It's only an hour from Boston -- and it's like the Cape without the cost, crowds, or traffic! The house was tidy and clean and had everything you'd need to prepare your own meals, but is also within walking distance of a good restaurant that has a nice outdoor bar. Loved the private beach and how accessible the local winery and brewery were, too. Gerry was an excellent host who was extremely friendly, communicative, and helpful. We really appreciated being able to extend our stay on our last day because she gave us permission to leave our car on her property while we went to the beach before heading back home. I almost don't want to tell people about this spot because we want to make sure it's still available when we come back!

So glad you enjoyed your stay in our Carriage House, but am sorry about the WiFi connection. I believe I left the new code etc. in the top drawer of the desk(TV sits on)for our guests. I will check with new quests to make sure it is working(sometimes when we lose power, it needs to be adjusted). I'm not a high tech person, but will have it checked out. I will, also, check my (URL HIDDEN) listing to update any discrepancy. My apologies.

We had a wonderful stay at Gerry and Jim's place! The location was perfect for us - easy walk to the private beach and to the Back Eddy for dinner afterwards. We did some kayaking and bike riding which were both really easy to get to from their place. Gerry met us at check-in and showed us around the place. It was perfect for the two of us! And it was wonderful to be able to leave our car (with kayaks and bikes on it!) in their driveway for the day after we checked out so we could go to the beach one last day. Thanks for the use of your outdoor shower after the beach also! Hope we can make it back next year!!

Jerry and Jim are fantastic hosts with a beautiful property. It seemed that no matter what we needed, they were there to help. The apartment is very homey and spotless. It is well equipped for virtually every need, and Jerry and Jim will fill in with their own equipment if your needs demand.....just ask! These are special people with a very special place. The private beach is reminiscent of Cape Cod without the drive. Beautiful beach and bold ocean front, backed by sand dunes. Hard to believe a property like this exists in Westport MA.
