Foster House

The Foster House is a 3-bedroom, 2-bath, two-story house overlooking historic Howland Beach and Richmond Pond, in Westport Mass. Most rooms have spectacular views of the pond or the ocean. The living room is equipped with cable TV/DVD, stereo system and wireless Internet. The dining room seats six and the kitchen is fully equipped with coffeemaker, dishwasher, toaster, microwave, pots and pans, and dishes and glasses. There are three bedrooms: one on the ground floor with a king-sized bed, two on the upper floor, one with a queen-sized bed and one with a full-sized bed and a trundle bed. There is a back deck that offers a great spot for entertaining and BBQing. Enjoy bathing alfresco – bathing outdoors is the height of New England living and we provide a lovely, private outdoor shower room – great for post-beach-activity wash downs, or a lovely, indulgent outdoor experience.

Construction of the Foster House was started in 1950 using a corncrib from the original Howland Farm. The corncrib dates from around 1650. The corncrib, constructed with classic post and beam construction using mortise and tenon joinery, is now the central living room and one of the upstairs bedrooms. The antique construction can still be seen.

The Westport village of Acoaxet, near Horseneck Beach, is on the Massachusetts/Rhode Island border. Boston is 54 miles away, and Cape Cod, Newport RI, and Providence RI are approximately 1 hour away. The nearby rivers and ponds provide an ideal habitat for a variety of wildlife. Guests can enjoy walking, jogging, bird watching, fishing, cycling, kayaking, surfing, sunbathing and swimming at the private beach.
