Description

Come make memories on the Vineyard! Our property is a beautiful, completely renovated, 'Turn of the Century' house within walking distance of OB center, the Inkwell Beach, and ferries.

Abutting the 'Campground Meeting Association', our house has a quiet & shady back yard that's perfect for relaxing after a day at the beach or entertaining your family/friends. The enormous, inviting front porch offers a place for everyone to join together for lunch or simply have a secluded nap in the afternoon. Comfortably sleeping 10, she has all of the quirks and charms of an antique Cape Cod home and is full of Martha's Vineyard Campground History. Our kitchen is completely stocked for all of your culinary needs, yet a gas grill is provided so you don't need to be in the kitchen.

Our home offers the best of both worlds...it is close enough to walk to everything while offering a peaceful haven for relaxing with family and friends.

    Wonderful Stay in a Grand Dame

    Selfishly we are reluctant to write this review, wanting to keep this "Grand Dame" of a lovely home from others looking for a fabulous place to stay while on Martha's Vineyard. . . .
    We could not have been happier with our stay. The owners have thought of everything regarding their guests personal needs and family activities! In addition, the location is perfect - walking distance to downtown Oak Bluffs and the beach. The front porch was a favorite gathering place for the 10 of us! And the home's interior had plenty of spaces for a group of our size. We have so many fabulous memories. Both, the Massachusetts and Buffalo, NY, families could not be happier with this "Grand Dame" as our home away from home!

    Amazing Time Once Again

    When we arrived, the house was immaculate. The bedrooms were bright and cozy, the kitchen had all of the essential supplies, towels were clean and well stocked, and the bikes and gas grill were ready to go The porch is our favorite...it is large, shaded and a perfect place to spend lazy mornings, cool afternoons and late nights. Outdoor shower always provided us with complete privacy and perfect water pressure. You can't beat the location and dealing with Rick and Leo was easy and enjoyable. Highly recommend this property!!! show more show less

    Great location

    We have stayed at the Leo's house several times. It is always clean and well stocked. Love the location! We walked to the park, beach, camp meeting ground, harbor, bowling, movies, shops, and restaurants. Several bikes were available too. Love the fact that beach chairs and towels were provided. Hope to do a return visit in the future.

    Repeat customer

    This was our second stay at the beautiful Leo Cottage. It offers proximity to OB and beaches as well as some separation from the busy downtown area. Plenty of room for our group of 8. Outdoor space is amazing. The outdoor shower is a must for any Vineyard vacation. The owners are very attentive.

    Classic Vineyard charm and wonderful location

    This is a classic Vineyard house with a great porch and back yard. We loved the location and proximity to the Campground and downtown OB. It is an easy drive to State beach, and a quick bike ride to the ink well beach.

    Rick was great to deal with and we would definitely rent this MV charmer again.

    Great Time

    First time staying at this house. The owners couldn't have been better about communicating with us. The house has everything you need to enjoy your time on the island. We definitely will be back.

    Oak Bluffs Cottage

    The house was great with just about everything needed for a great vacation. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy the day. The backyard was great for the kids and family dinners, very well kept. The owners, Rick & Julie, were there to answer any questions we had.

    Great memories for our family at the Leo Cottage!

    We love it here! Our family has leased this home 4 times and we keep coming back! The location is fabulous. It's a quick few minutes walk to Oak Bluff shops and restaurants and a 5 minute walk to the inkwell beach. The home has a wonderful cottage feel, it's clean and is is fully stocked with everything you need. The outdoor shower is a favorite as well as the wrap around porch where our family gathers for morning coffee and at 5:00pm sharp for happy hours. The patio and furniture is beautiful and fantastic for cookouts. Having the beach chairs, bicycles and now clamming rakes is wonderful. Rick and Julie are so kind and helpful. The gifts they surprise us with is so thoughtful and appreciated. We highly recommend you enjoy your vacation here. show more show less

    My wife and I have been going to MV since we were in our late teens, both with our separate groups of friends. After becoming a couple in 1991, we shared many amazing and special times with our now larger group of friends. After 9-11, when our children were small, we felt that our kids needed to experience the joy and community of Oak Bluffs. We then began renting on the Island and stayed at a wonderful place on Chapman Ave. Each summer we grew to know more Islanders and began staying for a longer duration of time. Our boys loved the Island as much as we did so when we had he chance to buy our own place with a family member, we jumped! Five years ago, with our boys in pre-teen years, we needed autonomy AND a larger home closer to town. We were blessed to find 135 Circuit Ave in OB and we have loved her as much as she has loved us.

    What is special about this property?
    The cottage is of significant local history as it was used as a rooming house for people who could not secure homes in the campground. The den has many articles, books, and photos pertaining to the cottage and the former owners. The Leo Cottage has a great wrap around porch with two separate seating areas and a dining area for 5. The home has a wonderful backyard with a large table and a fantastic over sized grill. The cottage also has a large outdoor shower. One of the cottages' greatest assets is the location... literally 276 steps from downtown and less than 1/2 mile to Inkwell Beach. Walk to playgrounds, the dog walking park, numerous basketball and tennis courts, antique shops, art galleries, and local bars. If you need some exercise, the home is also close to walking/running trails that can be as short as 2 miles or lengthened to 5 or 6 miles. We have mapped these routes for our renters as well as provided bikes to tool around town.

    What is special about your town?
    As stated in the tourist information for OB:
    Originally named "Cottage City", Oak Bluffs is a romantic Victorian seaside summer resort that has claimed the hearts and souls of visitors for more than a century.

    Enjoy pristine beaches, a fabulous network of exquisite parks, a super fishing pier, historic attractions such as the famed Flying Horses carousel and the Cottage Museum in a setting filled with stunning Victorian mansions and charming Gingerbread Cottages. You can walk to EVERYTHING DOWNTOWN!

    There are spectacular EVENTS that include "the best FIREWORKS in the world" and the truly unique "Illumination Night". Music, dining, dancing, concerts and lots of family FUN! The third week in August is the week of the OB fireworks. This coincides with the ''Grand Illumination'' and the annual Agricultural Fair in West Tisbury.

    There are many art shows throughout the summer and live music events in the form of outdoor venues and live music at The Ritz most every night of the week.

    The island's largest marina and destination for ferries from Falmouth, Woods Hole, Hyannis, Rhode Island, New Bedford and NYC is at the center of everything.
