Location

Westport, Massachusetts, United States

Westport is a rural seaside gem, a former dairy town with historic old farms, miles of country roads and stone walls, a stunning river, and magnificent beach access complete with sand dunes. We have a family-run winery and brewery and several excellent nearby restaurants ranging from home cooking, wood-fired pizza, a tavern, an oyster bar, fine dining, seafood, and a tapas bar.

The Westport Land Conservation Trust maintains more than a dozen properties in town for walking, birding, trail-running, and mountain biking. Two of their largest properties are within a mile of the farm. Visit their website for detailed maps.

Public beach access in Westport is available for a daily fee at Horseneck Beach State Reservation which is about 6 miles away from us. This beach has ample parking ($13/day for MA residents, $40/day for OOS plates), LEED certified bath houses, a snack bar, and lifeguards. Westport town beaches are not accessible to cottage guests, unfortunately. Town beach access requires a town beach pass, which is attached to a specific vehicle and is non-transferable.

South Shore Beach in Little Compton is allowing 150 cars/day. Opens at 8am. Single day passes cost $15 on a weekday and $20 on a weekend. Week-long passes are available for $50. You can call the Beach Telephone 401-239-4818 with any questions about OOS plate access and capacity updates.

My husband (Norman) and I bought a historic 300-yr old farm on the south coast of Massachusetts in 2010. After a painstaking, 5-year, historically correct restoration, we moved here with our goat herd in 2016. The classic barnyard has a post and beam center chimney Cape house, an English style bank barn, a blacksmith shop, and 3 smaller outbuildings. We converted the blacksmith shop into a guest cottage for family and friends and Airbnb. In season we milk our goats daily and drink the milk and make cheese (chevre), yogurt, kefir, and goat milk soap. We barter with other farmer friends and sell some products at local farmers markets. We are not yet licensed to sell our milk or cheese, but hope to pursue that dream soon. We both work "off-farm" part-time jobs (from home offices) to pay the bills. Laurie is a marketing consultant and Norman is a real estate appraiser.

During your stay
We'll greet you, give you a brief orientation, and be available to you during your stay. We live only a few steps away across the barnyard, so are on property most of the time. We won't crowd you if you want peace/quiet but we are available to answer any questions about the property, the animals, and the area. We can arrange a totally touch-free check-in if you wish.
