Description

Description

Enjoy spectacular lake and ocean views, amazing sunsets and your own private beach year-round. This clean and comfortable, family-friendly house looks west across Lake Tashmoo and out to sunsets across the Vineyard Sound to the Elizabeth Islands. Absolutely lovely in summertime, the property offers special value to visitors attending Island weddings, family get-togethers and reunions of old friends in the ''shoulder months'' before and after peak season at seasonally lower costs.

COVID-19 Response - We have taken extra steps to make sure the house is thoroughly cleaned and properly sanitized before each guest arrives. Our cleaning service uses only cleaning equipment and supplies we provide to insure they don’t bring in equipment or cleaning materials from other locations. Beds are made up with fresh linens, and we provide fresh towels and beach towels for all guests. All contact surfaces, including tables, counter tops and door handles are carefully wiped down with sanitizing solution before you move in.

With a new house built in 1999 on land our grandfather bought 100 years ago, ''Macy Tashmoo Pond'' is a cherished family treasure. Built on one and a half acres of prime lakefront just off Herring Creek Road, the house is only a mile from downtown Vineyard Haven. Featuring new appliances, high-speed cable service, a large parking lot and two-car garage, you will have all the convenience of home in a uniquely beautiful and private location. Enjoy convenient access to everything that Martha's Vineyard has to offer, or just relax and 'get away from it all.'

Relax in the sunshine on the main deck or in the shade of the covered upstairs balcony while you take in the spectacular views and feel the cool breeze coming off the lake. Walk about 50 yards from the house for kayaking, sailing, clamming or a pleasant swim in the lake. Or walk .3 miles to Wilfrid's Pond Beach or .7 miles to Lake Tashmoo Town Beach. Mink Meadows Golf Club is also within walking distance (.9 mile).

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

We installed new kitchen appliances (range, refrigerator and dishwasher) and a new washer and dryer in 2019. A second refrigerator on the lower level provides extra storage for food and beverages. The house is fully equipped with all the cookware, tableware and silverware you will need. Cushioned window seats, books, toys and games are available to enhance your stay. This is our home and we look forward to sharing it with you and your family.

Amenities include premium cable TV with Netflix, high-speed internet and WiFi and telephone service with unlimited domestic calling. There are flat-screen televisions in the primary bedroom and the living room. The house is equipped with ample USB charging ports for your personal devices.

Sleeping accommodations include a king bed in the primary bedroom and queen beds in the other two bedrooms. 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 back-up power generator in the event of a power outage. Two Weber barbecue grills are available for your use.

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

Massachusetts and local taxes of 11.7% apply to all rentals.

    Vacation Home Review

    This Lake Tashmoo vacation home is absolutely amazing!! We had the most wonderful time staying in this home on our Vineyard vacation. The house had everything we needed-even beach chairs and beach towels! We cooked many seafood dinners in the well appointed kitchen and also grilled outside too! We had coffee every morning on the deck and at night sat on the deck to watch the amazing sunsets. We often took the beach chairs to the private beach to soak up the sun and the pretty views.

    The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms had extra amenities in case something was forgotten. The outdoor shower came in handy after a day at the beach!
    We truly enjoyed everything about this vacation home but here are our favorites:
    -the views
    -the decks-There are two!
    -the private beach
    -The owners-They were wonderful to deal with!!
    You will not be disappointed with this home! We hope to be back for another Lake Tashmoo vacation!

    Very special family spot

    Our first year staying at the Macy house on Tashmoo. Wow! Spectacular sunsets and a quiet, special spot on the Island. The house and location fit our needs perfectly. Ample space for family (or several couples). All items we needed, from well stocked kitchen to great set of beach chairs, were there. The porches offer quiet spots to read. The work nook let us keep up with those couple of meetings we just couldn't clear off the calendar. The beach gave our little kiddos space to splash and swim. We enjoyed many (SUP) paddles on Tashmoo and early morning walks and runs on the roads. The road can be daunting for cars, especially if you have low clearance, but take it slow and let it be reminder to ease into Island life.

    For our family, who fell in love with MV generations ago, the Macy spot is perfect and embodies so much about what we love about the Island: ample, simple space focused on enjoying the beauty of the Island. Thank you for sharing this special spot. We're already looking forward to next summer!

    A Special Place and Fortunate Find

    How fortunate that you found this place and are looking at it. It's a wonderful location as pictured with a small but delightful beach that has marsh lands around it, good breezes, and a nice place to go mornings, evenings, and during the day.

    The house is nicely furnished, very good appliances, substantial kitchen items and serving items, good spaces for dinning and relaxing indoors and on two decks, and substantial bedrooms.

    It's well maintained both off season and during the season (when occupied). The house and grounds reflect the thoughtfulness of the owners by the care they provide. show more show less

    Offseason Tashmoo

    This quick winter get away could not have worked out better. First off - The homeowners were extremely responsive, organized, and receptive to our needs. With 1 day notice we were walking into a clean house ready for us to settle in and enjoy. They were also amazing when we left a few items behind. I have had some great experiences with homeowners on MV, but must give the nod to these folks as my expectations were more than exceeded!!!

    The layout of the house is ideal for a full family vacation. The lower level sleeping is set up for kids, single floor living for grandparents, and second floor bedrooms for couples. Open floor plan for with amazing water views from everywhere and easy access to a deck with the same water view. The house was also incredibly well appointed.......they have thought of everything!

    The location is amazing. It's off the beaten path, has a tidal pond beach directly off the property, town beach at the end of the street, but yet still very close to amenities. The wild life was amazing and the neighbors were all super friendly on the single lane road. The road can be a challenge (especially with the snowfall we had), but rough terrain is one of the reasons I come out to MV. Also, in my humble experience with MV over the years - the sketchier the road........the better the property.

    Amazing Views and Gracious Host

    We visited this home mid September. SO many great things to say about it:
    1. The views are sensational. Every level of the house has gorgeous views.
    2. The beds and linens were super comfy. We slept like kings and queens. Three of the bedrooms have sliding doors to a deck/porch.
    3. The house has a private beach. It is also in walking distance to 2 other private beaches, or semi private, at the least. All 3 are gorgeous. There was no one else there anytime we went. The house is in the woods so the walk to the beaches is very relaxing.
    4. The owner left us a welcome basket. That was just lovely: tea, coffee, snacks, wine, etc. Got us off to a great start.
    5. The house has anything you could think of. I brought my own apron (have never had one of those at a rental before) and in fact, even that was there. It's very well stocked: games, books, pots, glasses, blankets, etc.
    6. The house has enough space for people to spread out indoors in the event of inclement weather.
    7. The owner left us a very thorough guide with details on everything. We took one of his suggestions and had a kayak and paddle board dropped off. We had a blast with those.
    8. The private beach is not deep nor rough nor very rocky. Easy to enjoy.
    9. The owner was very responsive. I had a general question about one of the island attractions and thanks to him we were able to finally see Lucy Vincent Beach. He also sent notes to welcome us and let us know he was available.
    10. All of the appliances are new and the house has a great personality. It's cozy and family friendly. The house is in a great location; only 10 mins to Vineyard Haven and 15 to Oak Bluffs. Yet, it is also its own private oasis where you feel like you are really away!
    We hope to be back next year, same time.

    Amazing House for a Ladies Weekend!

    My friends and I had the best experience at this property. With Covid and a busy summer, it was so nice to have our own little private beach to walk down to where we could stay safe and beat the crowds! It was so calm, beautiful, and quiet! The other beaches near the property were just a walk away, which made it very easy for us! The house itself is well maintained and had so much space inside and on the balconies. Tim had an amazing welcome package/packet and everything was very clear and precise, with great recommendations. The house was very well stocked with necessities for cooking, cleaning and toiletries. Our favorite part of the trip was watching the beautiful sunsets from the balcony. A breathtaking property away from all of the busy MV town centers but close enough to explore all of them with just a short car ride. I would recommend for anyone looking for a little slice of paradise. show more show less

    Delightful Gem on Lake Tashmoo

    We loved our time on Lake Tashmoo in this home. The layout was perfect for our multi-family group. The house was comfortably furnished and had all the amenities we needed. The owner stayed in touch and provided helpful information and suggestions. On top of all that, the location was amazing. We could walk or bike into Vineyard Haven or take a short stroll to the beach at Wilford's Pond. Looking forward to a return next year!

    Beautiful Lake Tashmoo

    After having spent about 20 vacations on MV, this was the first time we stayed Down Island. We weren't disappointed. The house is situated right on the lake with gorgeous views. Easy access to the water and a private beach which can get small at high tide. We left our 3 kayaks there and frequently paddled across the lake to the public beach where the water was a little deeper for swimming. The paddling around the lake was ideal.

    Early in our stay we had a small issue which Tim responded to immediately. He couldn't have been nicer and had the problem fixed in no time. The only downside is that 2 bathrooms for 10 people isn't enough. The outdoor shower got a lot of use. In two weeks we had from 3 to 7 people which seemed to be the optimal amount. We do a lot of cooking and the kitchen was very well stocked. The bunkhouse is adorable and was much loved by the guest who stayed there. The upper and lower decks are fabulous. The house is very close to town and Friday night lobster rolls at Grace Church. Easy to ride bikes there and to town. Easy walk to White's beach on the sound. We truly loved our stay and plan on returning. show more show less

    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.
