Description

Description

Welcome to Macy Tashmoo Pond! Enjoy spectacular lake and ocean views, amazing sunsets and your own private beach from this spacious family-friendly Martha's Vineyard lakefront home! Set on the eastern edge of Lake Tashmoo, the house looks west over the lake and beyond it across the Vineyard Sound to the Elizabeth Islands.

Built in 1999 on property that's been in our family for a hundred years, the house sits on one and a half acres of prime lakefront off Herring Creek Road about a mile from downtown Vineyard Haven. You will have convenient access to everything the Island has to offer, or you can just stay home and take it easy.

Relax in the sunshine on the main deck or in the shade of the covered upstairs deck while you take in the spectacular views and feel the cool breeze coming off the lake. Walk 150 feet from the house to our private lake-side beach for kayaking, sailing, clamming or a swim in the lake. Or walk 3/10 mile to nearby Wilfrid's Pond Reserve (''White's Beach'' to old-timers) or Lake Tashmoo Town Beach (7/10 mile). Mink Meadows golf course is within walking distance (9/10 mile).

The calm waters of 270-acre Lake Tashmoo are ideal for kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding. If you don't have your own, Wind's Up in Vineyard Haven at www.windsupmv.com rents a variety of watercraft with convenient and affordable delivery and pickup to and from the house.

The house is equipped with high-speed internet, wi-fi accessible from every room in the house (and bunkhouse) and two televisions. Use the land line for unlimited domestic calling. If you absolutely must do some work, a comfortable work nook off the master bedroom provides gorgeous views to distract you.

The kitchen is equipped with a new refrigerator, range and dishwasher installed in March 2019. A second refrigerator on the lower level provides extra room for drinks and food for your family. Plenty of dishes, wine glasses and serving dishes are provided. Cushioned window seats, books, toys and games are available to enhance your stay. Clean linens, towels and beach towels are provided. This is our home and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Sleeping accommodations include a king bed in the master bedroom and queen beds in the other three bedrooms and separate bunkhouse. In addition, there are two twin beds in the sleeping nook on the lower level. All linens and towels are provided. Ocean breezes keep the temperature mild, but fans and central heat are available if needed.

There is a full house backup generator. If a power outage occurs, power is restored immediately.

Grab bars on the shower and bathtub, a first floor bedroom and a ramp to the entrance make the house accessible.

A separate bunkhouse provides extra space for teenagers or privacy for a couple. A large parking area and two-car garage provide abundant parking.

Great Getaway From It All

This home is a great getaway from it all. The home is comfortable, clean and well-stocked, with an absolutely amazing view! That alone is worth the trip. The two bedrooms upstairs are just perfect with great cross ventilation and a deck upon which to sit and enjoy coffee or wine, with a great view. The others have no view but are comfortable, with plenty of extra blankets and pillows. The kitchen is well stocked and they provide plenty of beach towels and beach chairs for your convenience. Although there is no A/C they do provide fans. You can walk to a very nice beach in about ten minutes and the walk into town takes about 30 minutes.

The hosts are wonderful and always accessible should you have any questions or concerns.
Highly recommend this home.

Perfect spot for our family

The Macy house was exactly as we had hoped for a family reunion. 4 couples and a young one were so comfortable in this lovely house in a magical setting. The view is unparalleled and the shoreline is perfect for exploring. The weather was dreary but it made no difference at all. We enjoyed every minute and the house offered everything we could hope for. So well organized and welcoming.

Even in February

February may not have the most favorable weather for vacationing but the sun did shine and we found some wonderful activities. The conch at Chef Deon's restaurant in O.B. made a chilly evening much warmer as did the sing-along at the Charter School the following evening.

Daytime activities were pleasant with lack of 'summer' traffic. One can get around easily and in plenty of time. It's not as green as summer but the more stark landscapes are beautiful in a different way.

Beautiful setting. Remote feel but not far from town.

A group of 7 college guy friends (now all in our mid 60's) were looking for an affordable house that was big enough to accommodate us and that might offer something special. We found it in this rental. The house's fixtures/appointments are somewhat dated, but the owners have thought of everything and we did not go for want on anything. There were two full-sized bathrooms, plenty of beds (we each had our own), nice open concept between kitchen/dining/living rooms and it all opened up to a big deck overlooking the saltwater lake. We golfed during our stay. Mink Meadow Golf is within walking distance and Farm Neck isn't a bad ride (15-20 minutes?). All the conveniences of home (cable/internet TV, internet, etc.) for us to watch the Patriots and Red Sox at night. We also took the walk down to the beach several times (maybe a mile) through the woods and out along the sandbar. Very nice and relaxing. Perfect setting for a group like ours or a big family get together. Owners couldn't have been nicer (although we never actually met), and made us feel very welcome. Not fancy, but perfect for our needs. We would definitely book it again.

A quintessential and wonderful Martha's Vineyard vacation spot...could not do better.

Nothing but great things to say about this property and the owners.

The house is well-equipped and immaculate. It is spacious, warm and accommodating. It's setting is absolutely amazing, quiet, serene, tranquil, and on the water with amazing views. And yet, five minutes to Vineyard Haven, 10 to Oak Bluffs and 15 to Edgartown.

The Macy's are great hosts, from your welcoming basket, to every detail imaginable in the advance packet you will receive in an email. Tim Macy is the contact for the family, and replies consistently and promptly within an hour.

I hosted extended family here at the Macy home. Each and every person who stayed at their home commented that they hoped I could get the home again next year. Although I live here on the island year round , and I am very aware of my many choices, I would look no further than renting this home again.

The only real problem I see here is letting too many people know about this great home and it becoming too difficult to get. In all seriousness, a wonderful home and wonderful experience.

Great clean modern house in a rustic wooded area with sunsets over the sound

The house was so well prepared for our stay. The hosts communicated with us regularly to ensure a great stay. The gift basket when we arrived was lovely. Great location, private yet close to everything. Thank you!

Serene, welcoming, gorgeous and very well equipped

The Macy’s were kind enough to allow an early check-in, which was hugely helpful. The property was a perfect home base for our crew who was in town for my sisters wedding. She lives on-island year round and the Tashmoo locale was so incredibly convenient for rest, relaxation, letting the kids run free. We had perfect proximity to our island friends, the venue, ferries and town. I personally stayed in the guest shed and absolutely loved the privacy and views. We will definitely rent again, hopefully for longer and are forever grateful to the Macy family for sharing their slice of paradise with us!
