Davenport House Bed & Breakfast


The Davenport House Bed & Breakfast in New Bedford, MA was built in 1912 and is registered with the Massachusetts Historical Commission. This bed & breakfast is an excellent way to appreciate the history and ambience of the whaling era, and it is one of only a few examples of Jacobethan architecture surviving in New Bedford.

The front parlor is a spacious room for read, socialize with other guests, or listen to music. It features one of the 3 fireplaces on the first floor, unique build-out windows providing extra space for seating, and an antique upright piano. There’s a front porch and a large mahogany piazza that wraps around the rear and south side of the Davenport House and overlooks the spacious garden with unique trees, colorful bushes, and multiple places to sit.

The continental breakfast features meals representative of the area’s Cape Verdean, Portuguese, African American, and Latino cultures. Meals are served with comfort and elegance in the formal dining room, set with formal dinnerware every morning. Breakfast includes coffee and tea, juice, fruit, cereal, and freshly baked muffins, bread, and coffee cakes.

There are two off-street parking spaces available for guests.
