We invite you to stay in our 1790 colonial inn on sixteen country acres. Tidal river meets meadow - birds sing and eagles soar.

Woods offer hiking or cross-country skiing from a large, comfortable quiet retreat. Antique and country furnishings throughout. All the space needed to mingle or be alone.

The Fairhaven Inn is one of the best places to stay.

Located 3 miles outside the ""City of Ships,"" Fairhaven is close to a variety of dining experiences, from the 5 star Robinhood Meetinghouse to the burgers and fries of the 50s, served at Fat Boy's by old time car-hops. Of course, ""lobstah"" comes right off the boat and into the pot at the Fisherman's Co-op at Five Islands.

If hiking is your pleasure, take a short walk through Fairhaven's 16 acres of woods and meadows or hike at Morse's Mountain Preserve down to the secluded Seawall Beach. Play golf just around the corner at Bath's Championship 18 hole course. Visit one of the 20 museums and historical societies. Find your ancestors at the Patten Free Library's genealogy room. Come to mingle or to be alone. There is room for all at Fairhaven.
