Description

Description

Farm Pond House sits right on the shores of Farm Pond, overlooking Harthaven, Chappaquiddick, and Nantucket Sound. All painted pine floors, original rafters, beaded board walls. Four bedrooms upstairs, (California King, Queen, double, and double pullout) with full bath (and water views from the huge tub), all with high peaked ceilings and expansive water views. All bedrooms have A/C window units, though the lovely ocean breezes mean you might not need them.

Sit on the 900-square foot wraparound porch, and contemplate where you might paddle or walk to - across to Harthaven Beach to fish, or bike or walk through the Land Bank trails around Farm Pond, or stroll up the street to tennis, park, or to town beyond. Just a ten minute walk to art galleries, shops, Tony's market, restaurants, bowling, ferries - everything you need. Five minute walk to Inkwell Beach.

The house is beachy and cozy but with modern amenities: brand new stainless kitchen appliances (gas range) and new laundry in a separate laundry area. Living room has wide water views, a woodburning fireplace, piano, painted wood floors, and a dining area for 6-8. The Middle room/study has a cozy daybed nook (double) surrounded by bookshelves and another table for 4-6. It opens to the kitchen beyond, which has water views out all windows, lots of counter space, a pantry, etc. Huge mudroom for storing all your stuff, and a basement with ping pong, games, and a queen pull out and twin bed.

The porch (partly covered, partly open to the sun) has dining for 6-8, seating for many more, including several places to sit and read and stare at the water for hours on end. Wide stairs for sitting and having your morning coffee or evening cocktails. Brand new high-end gas grill. Yard is large with lots of room to play. House comes with kayaks and canoe, includes all linens and towels.

Many of our tenants have been returning for many years.

Amazing view!
Sitting on the front porch with coffee and watching the pond is pretty incredible. The location is perfect-- quiet but close enough to town for kids to walk to arcade. Jamie is an incredible host and very responsive. The house is an older cottage-- lots of space for everyone but expect smaller bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen is very well-equipped and the living room was very comfortable for watching a movie with the family.

Storybook house and setting
Two favorites: savouring constant breezes on front porch overlooking two bodies of water, and lying in master bed in treehouse-like setting watching the motion of leaves outside the screened door. Heavenly.

Oak Bluffs Memorial Day weekend.
We had terrible weather and a great time. It was great walking around Oak Bluffs and just being out and the house provided great views of the pond and ocean. It was also close enough to town that we could walk in easily, but far enough away that when we were there, we had a lot of privacy.

Great Vacation Home!!!

Awesome vacation home with absolutely excellent host. Easy walk to Oak Bluffs town center. Nice view of Farm Pond. Our host Jamie was available, helpful, flexible and extremely thoughtful. The house has plenty of room for a large family with a great porch, yard, and parking. It is a classic Vinyard home with character and the quirks and charm that entails. We all had fun with the canoe, kayak, and playing ping pong.

Great location, great view

This cottage is in a prime location--short walk to the town and beaches of Oak Bluffs and an easy drive South Beach in Edgartown and downtown Vineyard Haven. The view of Farm Pond from the front porch is just beautiful, and the porch is spacious and cool enough for the whole family to lounge away the entire day and evening. The propane grill is great--we grilled many meals. The inside of the home is charming and the beds are comfortable; the outdoor shower worked great. Jaime is a wonderful host--friendly and easy to communicate with, responsive to renters' requests and needs, and very knowledgeable about the island. show more show less

Yes, it is a quirky place and yes, it does have a bedroom that connects to another bedroom, but it is a great location and really an amazing view. Drinks and appetizers on the porch cannot be beat and so close to town and Inkwell beach that it is well worth it. We had 7 people in the house plus two dogs and it accommodated our needs excellently. Kitchen is well stocked and we had a ball. Jamie is a great hostess. I found the whole experience heavenly!!!

The location was great. We were able to walk into oak bluffs for dinner, the ferries, and any other activities. Easy access to the bike trail too. The house had 4 bedrooms up stairs that easily fit 8 of us adults and one slept in a reading nook on the first floor. Kitchen had everything needed, and the wrap around porch was great to relax on and possessed a wonderful view of the pond and beyond that, the ocean. Outdoor shower was nice even on cooler evenings. We wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to stay here again if we come out to MV with our family or friends.

If you're looking for a slice of peaceful heaven, then Jamie's house is just the place to hang your hat. Jamie's house has a covered large porch, which overlooks Farm Pond, and Nantucket Sound beyond, where we sip our coffee and read the paper in the morning in total peace and quiet. In the afternoon, we might stroll down to Nancy's and have ourselves a lobster roll for lunch. There aren't many homes on MV in such a quiet location where you can also easily walk to restaurants, beaches, etc. And there are also lots of places to sleep for those unexpected guests who will surely drop by once they hear you're on the island! Book now before it's too late!

We loved our stay this year at Jamie's house! What a charming, and comfortable home. We had two families the first part of the week and no one felt on top of each other. The big wrap around porch is lovely with its breezes! We were even able to watch the Edgartown fireworks from the porch!
The location is perfect for a family with teens like ours--all the kids could bike or walk over to Circuit Ave for some needed independence. And if you have young kids it's great because there is a yard for them to play in. We loved our stay and hope to be back!

First time to Martha's Vineyard with my husband and this home was perfect! The back deck was a morning breakfast and Happy Hour retreat! Our adult children joined us for the last 3 days and fell in love with it too. Jamie was on duty answering all of my questions on where to get the best coffee to where to hike, bike, dine and sight see. We chose to rent bikes for a week and walk, taking Uber a few times to restaurants and it was a fantastic break from life. We highly recommend this endearing home which feels like you are in the country and a 10 minute walk/4 minute bike ride from all the action and dining.

I raised my children in this house for many years, and am now one of the publishers of the MVTimes, a local community newspaper. I've been on MV for at least part of the last 35 years and think there's no better place on earth.

What is special about this property?
The views are just amazing. From your pillow, or from the sofa, or while you cook, or grill, or sit by the fireplace, (or soak in the tub), you can stare at birds (we have Osprey, Great Blue Herons, egrets, ducks, etc), an occasional otter in the pond, and beyond to Harthaven, Chappaquiddick's North Neck and Cape Pogue, and Nantucket Sound.
I love the fact that you can walk out the back door and be in town in ten minutes, or at the beach in less than five, (walking or paddling a kayak or canoe) but it's so quiet here, you'll think you are up-Island. Easy bike to several bike paths, through the woods or along the beach, stroll to galleries, bbq, bowling, ferries, shops, restaurants, etc., or just never leave and stay on the porch and stare at the water, or read some of the hundreds of great books we have. For rainy days, there's a pingpong table in the basement.
The house has all the modern amenities you'll want- brand new stainless appliances (great gas range, quiet laundry and dishwasher), but is a classic OB Victorian with beaded board walls, high raftered ceilings, wood-burning fireplace, painted wood floors. The back half of the house was once a Campground ''gingerbread house'', then became a tea room on Circuit Ave., before being moved to join the front part of the house, on one of the original Copeland plan lots. It was moved to the pondside property 100 years ago.
I have really friendly, quiet neighbors and many of my tenants return each year.

What is special about your town?
Oak Bluffs is the best! There's excellent restaurants, lively harbor bar and restaurant scene, miles of trails and great fishing, biking, walking. Colorful gingerbread cottage community (400 tiny houses!). Great fishing and miles and miles and miles of white sandy beaches, with gentle entry for little kids. Lots of really unique shopping, and even a very cool bowling alley.
