Description

Lovely West Tisbury Home near Long Pt Wildlife Ocean/Pond & Lamberts Cove - We have transferrable ferry tickets for purchase for the weeks of June 29 to July 6, July 6 to July 13, and August 17 to 24. The DeWitt House sits on 1.4 acres of wooded property on Vineyard Meadow Farms Road in West Tisbury. It is approximately 1 mile from the main road that runs between West Tisbury and Edgartown. You can pick up the bike path at this point. The VTA buses also pick up along this main road (MV Transit Authority).

In the other direction, the house is 1 mile from the ocean at Long Point Beach. A quiet area, not far from Long Point Wildlife Refuge, the home is located toward the end of Vineyard Meadow Farms Road. As a renter of West Tisbury, visitors are eligible to purchase beach passes for Lambert's Cove.

The DeWitt House is air-conditioned. It has 2 floors. The main floor has a newly renovated kitchen (completed in 2018) with range, microwave oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee machine, and toaster oven. There are plates, utensils, glasses, mugs, pots, pans, and many cooking supplies for food preparation and cooking. The kitchen counter seats 3 people, and the dining table seats 8. There is a sliding door that leads onto the deck from the dining room. The living room, which also accommodates 8 people, has a flat-screened TV with cable service. Wifi is also available. The kitchen/living room/dining room area on the main floor is an open space providing an opportunity for people to gather and enjoy each other from all rooms.

Also on the main floor are two bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen-sized bed, dresser, nightstand, and closet. The other has 2 twin beds, dresser, nightstand, and closet. There is a full bath on this floor. The second floor is accessible by way of the stairs where you can find two bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen-sized bed, dresser, nightstand, and closet. The other bedroom has a full-sized bed, nightstand, closet for hanging clothes, and a closet with shelves. Each bedroom has a sliding door that leads onto a balcony that faces northward. There is also a full bathroom on this floor. There are towels, sheets, pillows, and blankets. Towels and sheets must be cleaned by the renters before leaving. An option to this arrangement would be to bring your own or rent towels and sheets on the Vineyard. There are companies that drop off and later pick up.

An outside shower adjoins the house on the west side, and the southern side of the house features a large deck with gas grill, deck chairs, and a patio table. There is a washer and dryer located in the basement.

The house is privately owned by one family. It is rented during the months of June through October. We take pride in offering a clean home with many of the amenities that provide comfortable accommodations.

Fullers Housecleaning Company who have cleaned our home for over 20 years have updated their cleaning procedures. They are currently using industry standard best practice procedures as there are no longer any local or state mandates relating to Covid-19. The home is cleaned before and after your arrival. Garbage is collected once a week. These expenses are included in the rental price.

    End of Summer with Adult children

    The house was nice and the updated kitchen was a great touch. We liked the privacy of the property being in a secluded area. It was a less modern any than the houses that rented in the past but we enjoyed our stay. If you enjoy a warm and cozy secluded cottage getaway, this is a great house for that experience.

    Hidden Gem

    This Vineyard Haven Home was perfect, and we have returned several times to new area discoveries.
    Our first visits were with growing children; now we return as a couple for R&R. The home is well stocked, with a large, newly renovated kitchen equipped for all cooking types. I especially appreciated the spaciousness and openness to the main living area. The bedrooms are large and spacious, with two full bathrooms up and downstairs. This could not be more perfect for a family, there is a lovely deck that opens from the living room and the kitchen, extending the social experience for BBQs or sitting in for a family movie on a large screen TV with all cable access.
    The area is private and very quiet, which we particularly appreciated. It took some time over the past visits to realize the abundance of trails and discoveries this area offers. If you love nature walks or bird watching, this is a location you will love. We found trails and nature beyond our expectations while venturing for walks and runs. If you stay in this home, I encourage you to walk out to the beach that has become our favorite spot on Martha's Vineyard. This isolated strip of beach fronts is a magnificent preserve of wildlife, and if you are ambitious, you can circle the areas to other out roads. The discovery makes staying in Vineyard Haven a magnificent must, as you can access this private island treasure. Upon your. return home, you have the choice of central air and a glass of wine, or on the deck with a cold beer. Perfect!

    Perfect for a Family!

    John and Valaries place was perfect!

    The area of the property is close to the airport without any noise. We enjoyed the location as we were a minute from the stables, two minutes from the West Tisbury library and the wonderful West Tisbury general store. I have been all around the island and where we stayed gave us good access to our interests within minutes.

    If you like nature walks or going for a morning run this is the place for you. The Long Point Wildlife area is just down the back road, a lovely walk of about a mile to the ocean. It was a perfect track to run to the quiet and gorgeous beach along the forest brush and tons of wildlife along this quiet track. You may not have the ocean view at this house but this is surely the next best thing. I should also mention you have the option to drive out to this area when you're ready to carry out your picnic for the day.

    The house is roomy and very comfortable. We have stayed at other times and it fit our needs, but this year they have completely renovated the kitchen. Fabulous, well appointed, modern with plenty of dishes if one was to have an extended family cookout. There are four bedrooms and a basement that can accommodate a large group. I was so happy to have the washer and dryer which made the family stay in the summer months easy. Finally the living area is large with a good size monitor for Netflix and movies.

    I highly recommend this place and for reference if you come in early fall leave your alarm at home the wild turkeys will wake you up :-)

    Enjoyable Fishing Vacation with Friends

    My wife and I spend a lot of time architectural consulting and vacationing on the Vineyard. This was the first time we stayed at this home and we would definitely stay there again. We were there for a week on a fishing trip with two other couples who also liked the house. The house was clean and tastefully newly renovated with a comfortable open floor plan. The house had all the amenities you have at home. The house was close to our favorite beach, Long Point. By the way, we caught bluefish which made our trip even more rewarding ! show more show less

    Lovely Home Near Long Pt Wildlife Refuge

    The family times that we have shared at this house are simply unforgettable. It is spacious, immaculately clean and cared for, quiet and comfortable. It is a short ride down a dirt road to the Long Point Beach, which is a hidden jewel, a spectacular Beach and fresh water pond. Convenient and comfortable, fully air conditioned, full cable service and internet, trash pick up, all new appliances, and fully equipped kitchen will provide a memorable vacation experience.

    Great Getaway for the Entire Family

    I love this house and location. There is enough room for everyone and the new upgrades have really put it over the top. It's located in a private, quiet neighborhood. It's close to the lake, ocean and bike path. The lake is great for the little ones and big ones alike. Will definitely be planning more stays at this location!

    Home Away From Home!

    This home is just beautiful! It looks just like the pictures, and was a wonderful island retreat for us this past summer. Their home is immaculate and equipped with anything you may need for cooking or grilling. Each night, we sat on the deck enjoying the sound of nature and the quiet peaceful songs of the birds and crickets. The beds were wonderfully comfortable and the closets were spacious. The air conditioning was an added treat during a very hot spell in August. It was close to Edgartown, and several times we rode our bikes there. The owners were so accommodating helping us with the ferry and insuring that we had everything we needed. They couldn't have been more helpful or kind. We would definitely rent this home again if we came back to the island. It was like a home away from home! show more show less

    Well organized home centrally located

    I stayed here with family and friends in the second week of July. The new kitchen is terrific with a wide layout that allows many cooks to work together and is complete with stone tops, new cabinets, under cabinet lighting, and great appliances. We needed the A/C for about an hour all week because most of the rooms also have fans, the nights were pleasant, and the upstairs bedrooms have wide sliding doors onto decks. The beds were nice.

    The location gives easy access to the biking paths of MV. The access road is paved and private so there is hardly traffic and the MV bike trails are independent of roads and mostly shaded in trees. We biked daily and a favorite stop was Morning Glory Farm, on the way to Edgartown, for coffee and pastry and amazing local vegs.

    West Tisbury has a nice market and breakfast/lunch stop called A7 that's close. The bike trail doesn't quite reach it but it's an easy drive. From there you are close to all the walking trails of Chilmark off North, Middle, and South Roads.

    There is a close beach and freshwater pond at the end of the access road. It's owned by the Trustees of Reservations and has limited parking. Arriving at 9 would guarantee a space and after 2 wasn't a problem. It requires a mile drive from the gate to the beach on a sand road so bike travel is a challenge. Sliding fees for TTOR members or public per passenger and car.

    John and Valerie DeWitt have owned this property since 1983. The original house was built here under our direction. We have spent many wonderful times here as a couple and with our family and friends. Later, as a married couple, we spent our summer vacations here with our children. Now that our children are older they spend time here with their friends and families. We have enjoyed Martha's Vineyard during all the seasons but love the late summer best.

    What is special about this property?
    Recently the DeWitt house underwent renovations to the kitchen. A dining room was added and the deck was replaced. We have also added air conditioning to the entire home. However, it is the location of the house that makes it special. The house is in a quiet area where visitors can rest from the hustle bustle of the Island. There is also a beautiful beach with access to the ocean and a fresh water pond about a mile away. You don't have to leave the neighborhood to get there! You do have to become a member to use it though. Of course you want to explore the beautiful island, too! The house is about the same distance to the towns of Edgartown, Vineyard Haven, and Oak Bluffs. Driving up-Island takes a little longer and is a beautiful drive.

    What is special about your town?
    West Tisbury is a small town with a general store (Alley's), library, agriculture center (Grange Hall), and access to 2 beautiful beaches: Long Point and Lambert's Cove. It is a quiet town that is located less than 30 minutes to the main areas of Martha's Vineyard: Tisbury, Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, Chilmark, and Menemsha. Other interesting places to visit in West Tisbury include Polly Hill Arboretum, Field Gallery, Granary Gallery, Yoga Barn, Martha's Vineyard Glassworks, Christiantown Woods Preserve, Arrowhead Farm, North Tisbury Farm, Workout and Vineyard Tennis Center, First Congregational Church, and Seastone Papers.
