"Great place to stay!"
We were traveling on the East coast for extended travel. Heidi and Paul were wonderful! They were fun and had lots of great travel ideas. The house is a historical treasure. We need more time there to really appreciate the house as we were also trying to explore the area. The house is set in a neighborhood which is quite lovely and very quiet.

"What a breakfast!!!"
We opted to stayed there for a wedding instead of the hotel like everyone else and it turned out great! Comfortable bed, convenient location and what a spread for breakfast! There were 4 cream cheeses to choose from! Lol! Obviously a small detail, but you get the picture. The term B&B should be modeled after Delano. Highly recommended.

"Very welcoming and clean."
This was the first time that I've stayed at a true bed and breakfast. Heidi (onsite manager) was very welcoming and very courteous. She made my wife and I feel very much like family. The room was clean and orderly. It was a little small and had a slight smell, but given the house's age, it was understandable. The bed was very comfortable and the neighborhood was very peaceful. If we had to stay in the area again, we would definitely stay in the Delano again. The history of the home was very interesting as well.

"Perfect "home base" for Cape Cod/Martha's V visit"
Our extended 3 day stay was great. Our room was large and comfortable and super clean. Coffee and snacks were always available, breakfast included lots of fresh fruit and baking. Access to the huge garden , living room, kitchen and dining room was encouraged and the owner and staff were very helpful with local directions, events and information. Nearby they suggested 2 fantastic restaurants - both were great. Highly recommended!!

I absolutely loved the B&B. The house and the yard were beautiful. My only fault with it was that the air should have been turned on sooner to our arrival. It had been just recently turned on prior to our arrival. It took a long time to cool the room and bathroom after we checked in. Would stay here again though. The town was picture perfect also.

"Gorgeous and Well Run"
We have family nearby, and usually have stayed at area motels, but we definitely want to stay at the Delano from now on. It was a bit pricey, but actually pretty close in price to the soul-less motels given that it was July on the harbor. For essentially the same money, we stepped back into a genteel and gracious time. The house, furnishings, and gardens are picture perfect. Our bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was gorgeous (with a clawfoot soaking tub). And the continental breakfast offered a lot. Wifi was free and fast. Highly recommend -- we will definitely return.

"Hidden Gem in Fairhaven"
Big thank you to Paul and Heidi for their hospitality! We were looking for B&B's to stay in while we explored the coastal towns of MA during the off season (2nd weekend of April) and happened to find the Delano Homestead B&B. Paul - the owner and proprietor - welcomed us when we arrived, gave us a tour of the house and showed us to our room. The room was very spacious, lots of windows that brought in the spring sunshine, and a huge comfy bed. Being a B&B, our bathroom was right around the corner from our bedroom, but it was clean, spacious and didn't detract from the experience. The next morning, Heidi greeted us with a smile and a full spread of breakfast foods. Even though we only stayed for one night, it was a great experience!

"Close to ferry service to Martha's Vineyard"
We were pleasantly surprised at the historic nature of the B&B and the ambience of it, beautiful antiques and stylish decoration. Host was very welcoming and extra helpful re nearby ferry service from New Bedford to Martha's Vineyard. His knowledge allowed us to make the most of our stay on the island. Plentiful breakfast provided.

"Bed and Breakfast historique"
Bel édifice historique situé au cœur de Faihaven. Personnel accueillant qui donne de bons conseils pour les endroit à visiter aux alentours. La propreté des chambres laissait un peu à désirer (poussière sur les luminaires et dans la salle de bain). Les oreillers étaient inconfortables mais le lit très confortable.

"At home"
The house lived up to expectations and more. The bed was fit for a princess (though so high, needed stool to climb up). Paul & Heidi were very welcoming and gave excellent recommendations for local restaurants. However, the room still smelt of paint, the shutters behing the TV were difficult to access, and the door needed shoving to make it shut. These are small things compared to the wonderful house & garden in quiet Fairhaven.

"Lovely house in good location."
08/22/15 plainfieldnh Plainfield, New Hampshire
This is a beautiful historic house, in a quiet and lovely historic district, minutes from restaurants, marinas. Front room was large and comfortable, but did not have a private bath. Another smaller bedroom did have an en suite bathroom. Beds and bedding were excellent.

We arrived late a friday night and Heidi was waiting for us to show us all the commodities offered in the beautiful historic house. After a amazing breakfast saturday morning, we took the firts ferry to Martha's Vinyaerd at New Bedford, next to Fairhaven and came back with the last ferry of the day. The day after, after another delicious breakfast and a friendly talk with Heidi, we decided to visit Newport on the way back to NY. Our long we was great for my son and I, thanks a lot!

"A lovely and historic house"
04/15/15 Philip K Boston, Massachusetts
The wife and I highly recommend this B&B. One of FDR's family summer homes, the well appointed home has wonderfully high ceilings, a regal cherry staircase winding its way to the second story, and very comfortable rooms. Ours had a private bath with a jacuzzi feature which was perfect after a full day of motorcycling touing the coastline. The innkeeper (owner) and his assistance were super nice and made us feel right at home, and the breakfast was fresh and plentiful. We had a nice weekend stay and hope to return some day.

"Thanks for a wonderful stay"
12/15/14 jbryant2238 Dunedin, Florida
What a lovely surprise arrived in the mail today. A Christmas card from Delano's showing this beautiful home covered with snow. It reminded me that I hadn't reviewed this bed & breakfast since our return from vacation. We stayed at Delano's for nine days and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The home is gorgeous. Paul and Heidi do a wonderful job of being friendly, informative and making you feel right at home. Our room was on the 2nd floor, with a private bath, and was very comfortable. The breakfast choices were outstanding. The gardens very relaxing. Location is perfect for strolling to nearby restaurants and attractions. We certainly will be staying there whenever we travel to the area to visit family. Thanks again for a wonderful stay and for the lovely card.

Paul, the owner, was informative, helpful, and very pleasant to be around. Heidi delivered a terrific breakfast, wonderful and friendly service and insight, and was also just pleasant and kind. The entire experience was pleasant. But not the grounds and the house - they were stupendous!

"A great B&B experience"
10/22/12 IraNYC New York City, New York
A few friends and I -- we're history buffs -- booked a weekend at the Delano Homestead because of the connection to FDR and the Delano side of his family. The house turned out to be beautiful. And moreover, the hosts were very gracious and friendly. They run a wonderful guest house and for us it was very interesting to get more information about the history of the place. Fairhaven itself is a charming town with good food and nice places to tour. We couldn't have asked for more.

What a charming experience. The grounds are lovely, the interior common room spacious, the breakfast was varied and abundant, Paul (owner) and Heidi (house manager) did everything to make our stay comfortable. My husband and I travel to this area once or twice a year to visit family. I was so happy with the experience, we've booked again for Thanksgiving weekend.

"Perfect location, perfect house, perfect everything!"
08/15/12 tnpatti Portland, Tennessee
I can't remember how I happened to find the Delano Homestead B&B online, but I'm so glad I did. We spent two wonderful days and would have loved to have been there longer. First of all, the house is amazing. Most homes of this era have been restored but this is one that has been lovingly maintained. You feel as if FDR and Eleanor might come in at any time, just as they did so many times before. Yet, while all the integrity of the original house has been maintained, you have all the modern comforts we are used to having. The bathrooms are lovely with separate showers, and the bedrooms are air-conditioned with cable TV. One disadvantage of staying such a short time is that I didn't have the chance to just sit and read all afternoon in the beautiful garden. The location is perfect for exploring the area. It is a short drive to Cape Cod, and across the bridge from New Bedford with all it's whaling history. There is a ferry to Martha's Vineyard just a few miles away. Fairhaven is a lovely little town, with beautiful old homes and some great restaurants. We particularly enjoyed Elisabeth's and The Pasta House, which surprisingly had the best chowder I've ever eaten. While there is not a hot breakfast served at the B&B, there are all kinds of cereals, pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt, and beverages provided. I hate those B&Bs that are overdone with filly lace everywhere. There is none of that here. The house is very tastefully decorated. The owner is friendly, helpful and obviously committed the maintaining this home, which I consider a work of art.

"Very pleasant surprise"
06/02/12 dlavoy Washington DC, District of Columbia
This is a lovely, low key inn, in a lovingly restored 19th century house. No ticky-tacky. Great mattresses. Great garden. This would make a nice wedding destination. The place is affordable, and charming. And the biggest surprise is the town itself. The owner recommended a great place for me to jog down to the ocean. Gorgeous. There's a couple of restaurants a block or two away, that were memorably good and just as reasonably priced. I would definitely come back. Note that they don't take children.
