Delano Homestead Bed and Breakfast


The Delano Homestead Bed and Breakfast is a charming place in the historic Town Center of Fairhaven, MA. Anyone interested in history will delight in staying at the Delano Homestead—it was once the residence of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s mother, grandfather, and great-grandfather. It was FDR’s summer and holiday residence into his adult years and was visited by him and Eleanor, even as president and first lady.

The Delano Homestead Bed and Breakfast has been lovingly maintained since it was built in 1832 by one of New England’s most prominent families, and stands as a stunning example of Federal/Greek Revival architecture. The bed and breakfast—with 10 rooms, as well as a conservatory and green house—is framed by stone walls and wrought iron gates. It’s ideally located, too—on a quiet, residential street in the heart of the historic village center, close to the town hall, library, beach, parks, bicycle path, museums, maritime academy, shops, restaurants, and working waterfront.

The Delano Homestead Bed and Breakfast’s Facilities accomodate short-term guests, longer-term guests, and can be rented as a corporate residence and for special events. It has three rooms to choose from.
