Description

Description

Our fully renovated cottage, directly across the street from Nantucket Sound, is the perfect setting for your Vineyard vacation. We are within walking distance to all amenities: beach, shopping (food and gifts), restaurants, movies, bike and moped rentals, galleries and summer band concerts and the bike path.

The cottage has three bedrooms: 1 double and 1 queen and 1 with twin beds. The front bedrooms face the water. One has a balcony and the other is a tower room with huge picture window. There are 2 bathrooms, upstairs with a tub/shower combo, downstairs with shower. The kitchen is up to date with all stainless appliances as well as almost anything else you would need to make your culinary experience complete. The dining room is large and airy with a slider to our very large deck. The living room has been newly redecorated and has a lovely beach stone fireplace. There is a laundry room with washer/dryer, and an open front porch to watch the world go by. There also is ductless air conditioning for the entire house. The back yard sports lovely gardens, a gas barbeque grill and an outside hot/cold shower.

Due to the proximity to town, for a short stay (1 week), a car is not necessary. If visiting other towns and areas of the island is in your plans, the public bus can be hailed right in front of the house, and it will take you wherever you want to go. Bus passes may be purchased for your length of stay.

Our favorite spot is our tranquil deck with views of both Farm Pond to the rear and Nantucket Sound to the front. Potted plants, all weather wicker furniture and an umbrella table to enjoy al fresco dining complete the picture.

For the bicycle enthusiast, the paved island bike path is two houses away. This offers a safe way to explore the Vineyard from a different perspective.

Finally, I accept payments via PayPal or check.

Thank you for taking the time to explore our Vineyard cottage. We are very happy to answer any questions or try to resolve any issues. Just call or email.
Hope to hear from you soon......Pat

    Great location. Lots of amenities. Spectacular views. Very old house, needs updating.

    Overpriced. Issue unresolved for several days during stay.

    Owner Response:

    I can appreciate the tenant's frustration with the situation (ants) as the fact that the service provider (Terminex) failed to show up for an appointment did mean that the issue lingered for a few days; however, I responded to every text and email from the tenant as quickly as possibly and kept her apprised of when people were scheduled to arrive. When I was first alerted to the issue, I immediately contacted my handyman to have him bring supplies to the house to mitigate and took the first available appointment with Terminex. Unfortunately, on an island, options are limited and, as often happens, the service provider was a no call/no show on the day of the appointment. As soon as I found out, I called Terminex immediately to reschedule and had my handyman bring additional supplies to the house. I recognize that none of that negates the tenant's inconvenience, but as the owner of the property I take great pride in being personally very responsive to my tenants' feedback – good or bad – and feel that I was in this situation as well.

    With respect to the house being overpriced, it simply is not. The house is priced in-line with, if not slightly lower than, other comparably sized/located houses. The house absolutely is old (built in 1898), but as she herself points out it has great amenities and views, so it is not clear to me what the justification is for the overpriced and in need of updating comments or how I can possibly address those as the only issue she raised with me during her one-week stay was the ant issue. In fact she gave five stars to the accuracy of the listing – it would seem if the house was outdated or lacking in some way, this would not have been a five star category.

    Quahog Cottage

    We had an amazing week! The house was perfect for our family of 5! So close to everything from town, to beach, to the bike path and also pickle ball at Niantic Park. And the sunrises were right out the front door. There was something for all of us! The house had all that we needed and was so easy to check in and out. We hope to be back again and again!!

    Quahog Cottage

    Great vacation. Thanks, Pat!

    The owner is excellent with communication and quick with responses, could not ask for a better host.

    Outstanding location and views of both the ocean and Farm Pond with an easy walk to town.The cottage is clean and well stocked; including beach chairs, towels, linens and kitchen supplies. The furniture is comfortable with enough space to spread out . The detailed decorations in every room are impressive and fun to explore.

    Great house!

    My friends and I had a wonderful week in this terrific Quahog Cottage! The house itself is amazing - something interesting to see in every nook and cranny. The kitchen and dining area are VERY fully stocked with spices, dishware, glassware and cooking implements - we wanted for nothing!

    Location is excellent - the inside and outside living areas are comfortable and the views can't be beat. The new a.c. units work perfectly, if you need them.

    Pat is patient, helpful and quick to respond to any questions.

    We are all talking about a return trip next year!

    Quahog Cottage with Double View Vistas!

    We were so lucky to have secured this cottage for our annual vacation. Having 25+ years of summers in OB this was by far the most scenic with views of both the bay and the lagoon. The cottage provides ample alfresco dining and relaxing space both on the front porch and back deck. Inside the house functions great with large dining and living spaces and two updated baths. The front bedrooms offer a cruise ship view, and the master bedroom is HUGE with a separate sitting area. The cottage is also so convenient! You can walk or bike to just about everywhere. We look forward to returning to Quahog Cottage in the future.

    Best Kept Secret

    This is a lovely cottage. The location is fantastic, the view from both the front and back of the house is gorgeous and it's air conditioned! My family has stayed there several years in a row and no other property that we've searched compares for the price.

    The owners are wonderful and responsive as well.

    Vacation

    Quahog cottage had all the comforts of home. We enjoyed having our morning coffee watching the sunrise over the ocean. The upper deck was fun in the afternoon watching all the boat activity. The main deck was great for cooking out and again having a great view of the ocean. The cottage is located close to the bike path and downtown. We had an awesome week.

    Highly recommend!

    We've been going to the Vineyard every year for almost 30 years and this home is by far the best we've experienced. It is a charming old home with lots of character, gorgeous views and all the amenities needed. No car is needed since it is walking distance to town and beaches and right along the bike path. A perfect location and a perfect home!

    I have been a Vineyard vacationer since the mid 1950's. My family looked forward to our 3 weeks spent at a very camp like cottage in Oak Bluffs. When I married, I introduced my new husband to the island, he too fell in love with everything about it, saying some day we are going to buy a cottage here. Well, our dream came true in 1977 when we purchased what we now call Quahog Cottage. I was lucky enough to spend entire summers here and our daughter got her first job in Oak Bluffs. A lot has changed over the years: the island is busier, our cottage has morphed into a very cozy home with lots of amenities. What has remained the same is our special love for MV, the amazing views and the unforgettable sea noises that surround us. We are happy to share this all with our guests for a few weeks each summer. Come and see what I am talking about.

    What is special about this property?
    The location of Quahog Cottage is one of its greatest assets. We are directly across from Nantucket Sound with views from nearly every vantage point. The front porch with rocking chairs puts you up front for people watching. Our very large side deck has wonderful views of Farm Pond as well as the sound. It is outfitted with very comfortable wicker like furniture and a large table and chairs for meals or snacks. Steps away is a gas grill and our large outdoor shower...so much fun and so convenient after a day at the beach. We recently added LG Minisplits to cool in the summer and warm in the Fall.
    The kitchen is very well stocked with pots, pans, utensils and a variety of spices since for most of the season it is my ''home'' kitchen.

    What is special about your town?
    The cottage is an easy walk to the town of Oak Bluffs. The town provides shopping, dining and entertainment resources. The oldest carousel in the nation is here for your chance to grab a brass ring. We have a brand new bowling alley/and restaurant for great family fun. Circuit Ave is home to shopping of all sorts, grocery as well as gifts, wonderful family fare dining like Biscuits for breakfast, Linda Jeans for lunch, Giordano's for great Italian and fine dining at Sweet Life Cafe.
    The beach is literally in your front yard...with famous Inkwell Beach some yards down the sea wall walk. Public transportation can be flagged down in front of the cottage to take you toward Vineyard Haven or Edgartown. Rentals of all kinds are available, mopeds, bikes, boats, jet skies, wind and kite surfing gear, charter fishing boats and lots more. We are just beyond the bustle of town...but an easy walk into town. This is a great feature especially on busy August nights when finding a parking place in town may be close to impossible. Watch the fireworks from your front porch.
