Tranquility and elegance

A perfect spot to relax in a tranquil setting! This home is on a lovely 5 acre parcel, has ocean views and is very private. The home is well appointed and has a great floor plan, allowing privacy for multiple guests. It is elegant yet relaxed. The kitchen has all you need for cooking wonderful meals, which may be enjoyed either on the deck or at the dining table indoors. The outdoor shower is well designed. It may make you never use the indoors baths, which incidentally are new and beautiful.

Makonikey is a special part of the island. The sunsets are spectacular from the deck of this home and there is a private beach within walking distance. You are never too far from any of the towns should you choose to explore. This home is a perfect getaway. Highly recommended property.

Serenity

As a frequent visitor to the island, Billdad's Roost is a beautiful home for a relaxing getaway. Its remote location provides peace and quiet to rejuvenate the soul. Situated atop a hill boasts spectacular views of the ocean and incredible star gazing from the expansive back deck.

The interior of this home is bright and comfortable. It is tastefully decorated, and the plentiful light shows off the unique architecture. The bathrooms and kitchen have been fully updated.

I love the private beach which lends long walks along the shoreline.

This home is a perfect destination to get away from it all with style and comfort. It never disappoints.

The Road Taken

Lambert's Cove is one of my favorite places on the planet. Approach from the east and you can see the entire long crescent stretch before you. For seven years, we've started out from "Bildad's Roost," a wonderful home in Upper Makonikey, and walked the winding sandy road to Makonikey Head, and then west along the bluffs and shoreline to Lambert's Cove Beach or east to Split Rock.

Bildad's Roost is the name given the house by its first owner, Bob Marshall, Pee-Paw to his grandsons. The house he built, and home he created, over many years, is a fertile place for island experiences and memories. My family typically has two and three-week stays and often, after laying in provisions, won't leave the home for the first few days of our stay.

The house commands the highest point of five acres of land that roll gently downhill past a few solitary trees to wild grapes that mark the property line. After a busy year, it is easy to sit on the lower deck, watch for deer or boats on the water, and feel not a moment is wasted. Bring a book or borrow one from the well-stocked bookshelves in the library, the master bedroom or the kid's room, and you will be set for the afternoon.

If rain drives you inside, join your kids in puzzle making or one of the many games. And if those activities are too ambitious, flop on the comfy couch and flick on the state-of-the-art television and audio system.

The kitchen is great for preparing meals vacation style with kids shucking corn at the table, one parent making a salad at the kitchen's center island, and another grilling island fish, beef or vegetables on the gas-grill that can be fired up to cook a meal for a family and another to spare.

Once dinner is over, stay on the deck. With only the slightest competition from the lights of the mainland, the sky is fantastic, particularly on moonless nights. During the Perseid meteor showers in August, we've often lost count of the shooting stars that streak the night sky. The TV is poor competition for that natural display.

While you could stay on the grounds for the entire time, Bildad's Roost is also a great launching point for island exploration. Go north, on your bicycle, to Vineyard Haven. It's a great ride into town past ancient and gracious farms to pick up books at Bunch of Grapes, or breakfast at a handful of terrific spots. Hop in your car and make your way to Edgartown or Oak Bluffs, 25 minutes away during the high season, and enjoy the different island flavors those towns have to offer.

Will Runyon, Bob Marshall's son-in-law, is a wonderful, accommodating host. He goes to great lengths to make sure your vacation stay is comfortable and worry-free and that it has as much room left for wonder as time will allow.
