Description

Description

The East Wing is a private home and a part of the 26-room Captain Morse House. The Wings are 100% private just like a townhouse is. There is no shared interior space; each 6-bedroom wing has its own kitchen, entrances, and rooms. See below for detailed information.

The Captain Morse House is one of Edgartown's premier homes. It was built by the island's most successful whaler, Captain John Osbourne Morse, in 1840. The Captain Morse House has a superb location at the corner of Morse and North Water Streets on the waterfront and is a short walk to Edgartown's shopping and beaches. The town of Edgartown is defined by its Main Street. To the south is South Water Street which winds by the giant pagoda tree and towards the road to Katama and South Beach. North Water Street runs the opposite way and the Captain Morse House is located about halfway between Main Street and the Harbor View Hotel, which overlooks the Edgartown Lighthouse and the outer harbor.

On the east, North Water Street side of the house, there are two spacious porches, framed by 10 Doric columns, offering views of Edgartown Harbor. They create an ideal place to spend time with friends. The large patio, backyard, and garden offer a private oasis. The yard is graced by three magnificent Linden trees. Edgartown’s North Wharf lies steps away at the end of Morse Street. It is a great place to go and enjoy the waterfront or perhaps some fishing.

Beaches: There are 4 beaches within walking distance of the house and many more within a short bike or car ride.

As you might be able to guess we specialize in large families, family reunions, weddings, and anniversaries. Changing demand from our guests has led us to offer the home in Wings. Wing rentals are now fully 50% of our rental business.

East Wing Rental (The property you are currently viewing) offers 10 rooms, 6 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms and sleeps up to 12 people.

The East Wing 1st Floor of the house is the larger and more luxurious of the two. There is a large front living room with access to the large front porch facing North Water Street with water views of Edgartown Harbor. Just off the living room, there is an en-suite bedroom with a sleeper sofa equipped with an ''air-dream'' mattress. The large dining room can seat 12 and there is a large gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances. The 2nd floor features a king bedroom that can be made en-suite, two Queen Bedrooms, a large double twin bedroom, and two baths.
The 3rd floor includes a small sitting area and a large front bedroom with a Queen bed and two twin beds.

To learn more about the West Wing Rental, see WNAV Property ID #34476. The West Wing includes 9 rooms, 6 bedrooms plus a sleeping loft, 4 bathrooms, sleeps up to 12.

Shared Amenities
When you rent a Wing of the house you share the large backyard, patio, and driveway. On the patio, there are two large 8-person teak tables each with a large market umbrella. There are two large BBQ grills. On the lawn are 6 chaise lounges. On the side of the property is a single-file driveway for three cars. The tool shed has shared bikes and there is a toy box with beach chairs and umbrellas.

Summary:
We are committed to doing whatever we can to make your stay in our family home on Martha's Vineyard a special one. We think that our house is the best in town and offers our guests a truly unique experience. You can see more detailed information on The Captain Morse House on our website.

    Wonderful place to gather with family. Plenty of room. Beautiful place inside and out. The location cannot be beat. A stay at The Captain Morse is a real treat.

    The Captain Morse house will not disappoint. We stayed in the lovely East Wing and enjoyed the exceptional detail in the preserved historic home. The owner and property manager were helpful and responsive, and anticipated our every need. The house is situated within walking distance of the best Edgartown has to offer, including the Chappy Ferry. If you are hesitant in renting a historic home, rest assured that you will find every comfort and amenity, including beautiful state-of-the-art kitchen and baths, comfortable beds and even a cozy study. The house is also fully equipped with WiFi for those who need to stay connected. If we could give this a six star review, we would. show more show less

    The Captain Morse House is one of the grand houses in the center of Edgartown. We rented the East wing. It is huge with a large living room, separate formal dining room, TV room, a full bath, and an amazingly equipped kitchen on the ground floor, 4 large bedrooms and two full baths on the second and a large attic with 3 more beds suitable for children and teens.

    Given we were a group of ten, we ate all our dinners at the house since no restaurant in town could accommodate such a large group due to COVID. We really enjoyed it and prepared several lobster feats (the kitchen has a huge lobster pot) and barbecues (did I mention it has a great gas grill in the backyard with 2 large tables).

    We would be thrilled to stay here again and I hope we can.

    We stayed at the house 3 years ago for our wedding when we had the whole family with us and loved it! We have wanted to come back ever since so when we saw the EAST wing could be rented we thought it would be perfect and it was! The beautiful porch and large main living room are our favorites. Quick walk to town and beach and even got take out the last night because we just didn't want to leave this great house for one minute! Plenty of room and privacy and just love the character. The grand spiral staircase makes you feel like you are in another time.
    We made lots of great memories and can't wait to plan our next visit!
