Description

Description

A lovely cottage hidden in the woods on 7 plus acres tucked at the end of a dirt road. Stone walls, visiting song birds and natural landscaping with flowers, berry bushes and fern. This is a custom built home with antique beams, stained glass, soaring ceilings, glass sliders with view to stone walls and a deck overlooking a small fish pond. Lots of birds and flowers. The surrounding landscape and woods make this place special. It feels remote because of the size of the property and the natural landscaping but it is near everything. In this case, then, you can have it both ways! Fifteen-minute ride to gorgeous Long Point ocean beach with its own warm water pond. Lambert's Cove Beach and Uncle Seth's pond 3 miles away. (See map/photo section). Nearby nature conservancies invite quiet exploration by foot or by kayak of the nooks and startlingly beautiful views of this special island. The cottage is a stone’s throw from the State Forest with bike, horse, and walking paths. (See below for available ferry reservations, availability, and amenities.)

The spacious cottage has 1,700 square feet containing a master bedroom/bath with queen bed, a “great room” with two day beds, a sleeping loft with a king sized bed, and a second bath. Wireless internet, cable TV and DVD, dishwasher available, clothes washer and drier. Kitchen has been updated since photos were taken. Loft area, which kids like for bedroom, is accessible by a ladder which is typical for this area. There is an outdoor shower and a large yard for relaxing or children's play, safe from traffic and its noise. There is an outdoor shower. You have access to the town beach, Lambert's Cove (for which the town requires a car sticker payment). Owner provides permit to Long Point Ocean beach.This home works best for a couple or for a family with two kids. Limited to maximum of 2 adults and 2 children.

There is a $250 cleaning fee. The security deposit is $250. Only a well behaved pet considered.

Ferry tickets are available for the weeks of Aug. 11, Aug. 18, Aug. 25. You must make your own reservations for July, but July ferry reservations are easier to get than August reservations. Please contact owner if you cannot get a ferry reservation, as may be we can arrange a Friday to Friday rental or some other combination that works for you and the ferry.
Local rental businesses will bring bikes to the house and you can rent kayaks at several locales. If you want, have a massage nearby or at home. Yoga, pilates, dance classes, riding stables, golf and water sports are also nearby.

Cottage with Character

We are a family from Germany with two kids and spent one week in the cottage last summer.

It has lots of personality and charm and is very comfortable to live in. The location with the garden, the trees and the small fish pond give it a very friendly and relaxing atmosphere. We felt immediately at home in the personalized interior with many pieces of original furniture and decoration. It is not huge, but had a lots of space for the 4 of us, so everybody had enough privacy when wanted.

As we came from overseas and had further travel plans in the US, we had to travel light and could not bring a lot of luggage. The landlady was very supportive, explaining all the specifics about traveling to Martha's Vineyard that you may not know if you are not familiar with the island, arranging ferry transfer for our car, making sure we had everything we needed and could not bring or forgot to bring. During our stay, she gave us lots of good advice about activities on the island, which made it a really nice experience for us.

When we spend our next vacation in the US, we will definitely come back!

Exceptional

Great property. The photos do not do it justice. Fabulous central location up Great Plains Road from the bike path.

This house and land have a lot of privacy and character. The owner is a talented designer and gardener. Super quiet, a lot of great outdoor space. The island has a lot of ordinary rentals that aren't that affordable - this one is a real home, and really beautiful. A lot of time and thought went into this property. Will return for sure.

Wonderful Quiet secluded gorgeous home

We have been returning to this cottage for the past 8 years. Other Vineyard homes in this price category are often small guest houses crammed in next to a main house or ordinary looking boxes on one and a half acre properties. We love the feel of being in a woodsy environment of several acres in this handsome, spacious cottage with cedar wood interior and lovely antique stained glass windows. The cottage makes you feel like you are outside but you are inside. The owner has a real eye for beauty and it shows within the house and in the landscaping. The gardens are lovely, and the stone work around the property gives the impression of an English cottage with sheep meadow stone walls. We like to go to both Longpoint Ocean beach and the town beach, Lambert's Cove. We are already dreaming of this summer's trip. show more show less

What a sweet spot this is. The seclusion of 7 acres, stone walls, and beautiful architecture and gardens are hard to find at this price. And with all this, the home is near to everything: shopping, beach, hiking, and all the other island activities.
Thumbs up on this one.
Will definitely return.

Many years ago, when I was a student, and no one was particularly interested in the property my house sits upon, I bought 7 acres of land and developed it. It had nothing, no access road, no water, no sewer, no electric. I cleared the scrub pine acres with my bare hands and planted what have now become magnificent, huge white pines.

The story of how I went about building this house and figuring out how to pay for it is poetic. Allow me to use a comment from a return renter as a good comment upon the character of the place. A return renter once said to me, ''When we drove up to the house, I asked my wife, 'Are we in the right place?'''
You see, they were used to cookie cutter properties, which is what you usually get at the rental price I am asking.

What is special about this property?
This property has been a labor of love for many years. It is efficient and livable, but it presents the ''hand made'' feel for which the island and West Tisbury are famous. I actually cleared the property with my own hands. No machines. My Dad, who was a builder, helped me to build it. Then, there is my love of antiques. You will find Victorian ice cream parlor stained glass doors setting off the bedroom from the rest of the house. You will also find an antique stained glass triptych extending across the dining room. The post and beam construction depends upon huge, reclaimed farm house beams. My love of nature also finds its place here. I am a naturalistic landscaper, something which the educated eye and the visiting birds appreciate. But I also love flowers passionately. And I have allowed them entry into a contained natural landscape. The stone walls: oh, well isn't that something a New England property should have? If you are a bird lover, I can explain the historic importance of the land my house sits upon. But everyone, just come and enjoy it as much as I do.

What is special about your town?
West Tisbury, a town of farming people since the colonial area, was ''discovered'' by artists, writers, and others who loved its rural character, beautiful landscapes and woods. The town's character and culture leans towards the artsy, casual, and preference for low density housing. The town's unique culture distinguishes it from Edgartown's whaling town nautical feel and formal residential architecture. If residents want hustle and bustle and a honky tonk spot populated with charming cottages on small plots, we visit Oak Bluffs. Chilmark, noted for its rolling hills, large, country style estates and beaches is lovely but real estate prices have always outdistanced West Tisbury artists, writers, nature lovers, and just plain folk who, of course, always enjoy a trip to rugged Aquinnah. Visit West Tisbury and enjoy our folksy people, their friendly and casual attitude, and the town's incredibly lovely nature preserves and beaches. You won't be disappointed. Come on down! Or, as the local nautical direction would say: ''Come on Up-Island and see us.''
