Description

Description

Welcome to the Lilac House guest house! It's a cozy getaway, perfect for a few friends, or a couple with one or two younger children. A short walk to town, and a 10 minute walk to the ferries docking in Oak Bluffs, the house is directly across the road from the ocean. Access to Inkwell beach (the steps down to the sand) is just a block or so away.

The house has everything you need: it's air conditioned (a very efficient wall-mounted mini-split), has a kitchen with a fridge, oven/cooktop, sink (no dishwasher). There is a stacked washer/dryer in the back room. The back room also has a bureau, sink, and (off of that pictured image) is a shower/toilet. The shower is a bit small, so we've added a brand new outdoor shower (enclosed, with good water pressure and hot & cold water) that we, and guests, much prefer.

Please note that the beds share the common space with the living/kitchen area; there is no 'private' bedroom. The house is 1-story (a single step-up area inside and a step onto the exterior deck).

Preferred rentals are Saturday to Saturday, but we can often be flexible about arrival and departure dates, so just ask!

    Treasure in Oak Bluffs!

    We loved this place and we are coming back! This was our first trip to Oak Bluffs, and we really felt like we scored when we managed to book this adorable waterfront guest house in one of the best locations in town. We'd originally considered a hotel room but got so much more, for less, in this lovely, updated guest house. Sure, a queen bed would have been nice for us as a couple, but being close to the person you love in your very own twin bed is a close second. The kitchen was a real bonus, as was the relaxing sofa area. The bathroom is small, but the back room made the whole thing feel more spacious, and we're now the biggest fans of outdoor showers. AC worked great, the place was very clean and well stocked, and the mattresses seemed new and were really comfortable. Owner was pleasant and helpful, and we kept a polite distance from the guests in the Main House, who were also very respectful of us. I think more than two adults would be a tight fit, and probably not the place for you if you plan on cooking every dinner in, but the walkability, views, and quick beach access were great and for the two of us it was terrific! show more show less

    We are relatively new to renting this beloved gem, after updating it for style, use and comfort, but we are long-time lovers of Oak Bluffs and the Vineyard. Happy to help you with advice about the area, which we think is the best spot on the best street (steps from a fantastic swimming beach, walking distance to town but in a more peaceful area).

    What is special about this property?
    The house is walking distance not only from the restaurants and fun of town and the harbor, but also the OB ferry, and close to the bike path to Edgartown.

    What is special about your town?
    Oak Bluffs is casual, fun, inclusive, and bustling, with a richly meaningful history. Loads to do both on the water and on land. We are steps from the famous ''Inkwell'' town beach and a bike ride up the town bike path to State Beach & Edgartown.
