The house is a step back in time but still has modern luxuries and plenty of space and rooms to spread out or be together. The house has everything you could need, and the location couldn't be better for a walk to the charming shops and eateries or to check out the docks.

We'd not hesitate for a moment before returning. Our group was adult siblings, spouses, and young children. The house (we had both wings) was perfect for us. There was space to spread out--adults could be in the front living rooms while kids enjoyed feeling independent in the back. Two kitchens avoided any crunches of space. Bedrooms galore provided great flexibility. A short walk to Lighthouse Beach or to town provided perfect outings. And, used to living ourselves in a house of a similar era (early 1800s) with English antiques accented by China Trade pieces, we felt perfectly at home. The house clearly has a force field around it that avoids "beach house kitsch." It's just charming.

And three big cheers for Heidi. On top of providing a wonderful welcome when we arrived, she hit true heroics at 10:45am on New Year's Day when she answered our call on the first ring and arrived at the house within minutes and jumped our car, the battery of which had died, in time to make our boat off-island. That is truly above and beyond.

The Captain Morse House was the perfect accommodation for our large extended family visiting MV for a wedding. There are so many BR's and bathrooms to choose from, we were able to assign couples and singles perfectly. The home is beautifully decorated and well stocked. We found ourselves shifting from one room to another to get the full experience. The owner and the caretaker are very responsive and friendly.

The Seacoast Properties team rented the Captian Morse house for a work retreat and the space could not have been more perfect! There was plenty of sleeping accommodations for everyone, two large meeting spaces, two kitchens (one which we used for snacks / coffee / etc and one which was used by the caterers to prepare meals), speakers throughout for music, a large TV with HDMI hookup for presentations, and an amazing downton Edgartown location. We could not have been more pleased!

The house is lovely through and through. Favorite spot was breakfast and cocktails on the spacious front porch that faces North Water Street. Everyone who strolls past looks at you longingly - they want to be on that beautiful porch!

We had a large group and used the two kitchens with chefs coming in every night for meals. The space in the backyard was perfect for group activities (yoga). All the amenities were perfect - beach chairs, beach towels, bikes, helmets, beach towels, yoga mats, etc. Really can't say how special the accommodations were and the location was the icing on the cake. You can walk to the beach at the Edgartown Light, take the ferry to Chappaquiddick, bike to Morning Glory Farm, or walk to town within minutes. show more show less

Very well appointed house. We were a family gathering of 16 adults & 3 infants. The house had nearly anything you could want for serious chefs, utensils, 2 dishwashers, 2 bbqs, bicycles, tv subscriptions, spare spare computer screen, 2 large outdoor dining tables, rear yard chaise lounges, major laundry center in basement (2 washers/2 dryers), box fans for all the bedrooms plus central ac. All of this in addition to being 2 blocks from the beautiful town center of Edgartown.

We just hosted a wedding June 5th on MV. The bridesmaid party stayed at the Captain Morse House and ultimately the ceremony was moved to the garden 2 wweeks before the ceremony due to Covid. Platt was absolutely fabulous in allowing us to host the ceremony with such short notice. His website is so complete with all the necessary information from vendors, insurance, town permits, parking, tours etc. as a result the quick change for our ceremony was very easy. This same information is also extremely helpful for enjoying the entire island if you are visiting for fun. show more show less

We rented the Morse House for a week for a combination company work and fun event. It was great for both! Plenty of space for individuals to gather in large and small groups or to work individually. Similarly, when we put the work away, the house was great for fun too with rooms to hang out in, a great patio and backyard, as well as all that Edgartown had to offer just a short walk away. We would definitely rent again!

The Captain Morse house is a spectacular property for any occasion but, for a wedding, it is even more so. What a wonderful house! Upgraded where it's important, bathrooms, kitchens, wifi, music, and everything else needed for a carefree time and also the house retains the character of the Island with period pieces of furniture, great memorabilia, and a wonderful "feel". It truly is a special house, in particular for my daughter's wedding. We had the wedding in the backyard and the tent we rented fit perfectly into the space which made weather a non-factor. In addition, you can't beat the location which is about 300 yards from the Egdartown lighthouse on one direction and 300 yards in the other direction is the Edgartown center of town. Plenty of parking just rounded out our time on the Island at this special home. show more show less

We had a great stay and loved the place, thank you!! Streamlining some of the communication would be the only thing that made it even better. We really appreciated spending time in such a beautiful venue.
