Description

Description

The West Wing is a totally 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 whalers, Captain John Osbourne Morse, in 1840. The Captain Morse House has a superb location on the waterfront and is a short walk to Edgartown's shopping and beaches. The Captain Morse House is located at the corner of Morse and North Water Streets. 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 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, back yard, 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.

As you might be able to guess we specialize in large families, family reunions, weddings, 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.

West Wing Rental (The property you are currently viewing)
Accommodations: 9 rooms, 6 bedrooms plus a sleeping loft, 4 bathrooms, sleeps up to 12.

The 1st-floor consists of an open-plan living room, and dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, private bar, Queen bedroom, and en-suite bath. The west door exits right onto the large patio and lawn.

The 3rd-floor has a double bedroom for two, two single bedrooms, and a full bathroom.

Please note that the stairs in this 1840's house are steep. People with mobility issues should sleep on the 1st floor.

East Wing Rental
(If you want this Wing you will need to exit this property and search for it, WNAV id 34406)
Accommodations: 10 rooms, 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 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 3rd floor includes a small sitting area and a large front bedroom with a Queen bed and two twin beds.

The stairs in this 1840 home are steep. People with mobility issues should stay on the 1st floor or use the elevator.

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 is either one or two large BBQ grills. On the lawn are 6 chaise lounges. On the side of the property is a driveway with off-street parking for one car for each wing. The tool shed has shared bikes and there is a toy box with beach chairs and umbrellas.

We have developed a system to allow for a guest to have a patio party during one evening of their stay. Please see the EVENTS section below.

We have a 12 passenger Ford Transit van available as a separate rental. Please inquire.

EVENTS:
We are happy to have events but you will need to apply for written permission. For large events we suggest renting the complete house however we do have a system for people wishing to have events.

If a West Wing guest is staying for 4 nights or longer they can request to hold one private event from 5 pm to 9 pm on the patio. If the West Wing guest does that then they must also offer a private event on the patio to the guests in the East wing.

East Wing guests cannot request to hold a private patio event without the West Wing either (a) already holding an event or (b) getting permission from the West Wing guests. The maximum size of an event is 50 including any vendors.

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. Just search for captain morse house.


Adding Accommodations to Wing Rentals
As an option, you can add an additional 4 people and exclusive use of the 3rd floor. This allows you to increase the people staying at the house from 12 to a maximum of 16. If the East Wing guest selects 16 then the West Wings maximum would be 8. If the West Wing guest selects 16 then the East Wings maximum would be 8
Consider renting the entire home if you need more space. Inquire with us directly if you want this option.

About Platt Johnson

profile photo for Platt Johnson
Member since:

I grew up in the Captain Morse House with my parents and brother. We had a wonderful childhood full of sailing, fishing, tennis and bike riding. Our family has been coming to the Vineyard since 1956 and can assist you in providing information for the first time or seasoned Vineyard traveler.

I went to Tabor Academy in Marion MA. and Tufts University in Medford, MA.

I encourage you to check out our website and read all the content I have added over the years to assist you in having the best vacation ever.

Call me – I love to talk about the Vineyard.

What is special about this property?
Certainly the location is #1. We are on the most beautiful street on the island, North Water Street. The home itself was built by Captain Morse. He was Edgartown's most successful whaling captain and his home was the largest in town.

The property has been updated with all the amenities that a vacationer could want including central HVAC, modern WiFi and two wonderful kitchens that come fully equipped. The backyard is large and has a large patio attached to it.

What is special about your town?
One of New England's most elegant communities, Edgartown was Martha's Vineyard's first colonial settlement and it has been the county seat since 1642. The stately white Greek Revival houses built by the whaling captains have been carefully maintained. They make the town a museum-piece community, a seaport village preserved from the early 19th century.

Main Street is a picture book setting with its harbor and waterfront. The tall square-rigged ships that sailed all the world's oceans have passed from the Edgartown scene, but the heritage of those vessels and their captains has continued. For the past hundred years, Edgartown has been one of the world's great yachting centers.

To view and appreciate this town fully, you must walk its streets. North Water Street has a row of captains' houses not equaled anywhere. Study the fanlights and widow's walks by day and stroll down the streets after the lamps are lit.

There are excellent public beaches in the township of Edgartown. Norton's Point, known as South Beach or Katama, is a barrier beach providing surf bathing and the opportunity to explore Katama Bay on the other side of the dunes. Lighthouse Beach, located off North Water Street near the town center, offers calm water and views of harbor activities. Bend-in-the-Road Beach, part of Joseph Sylvia Beach, has ample parking and is accessible by bicycle trail.
