MV Round 2

Stayed: June 2012
Summer of 2012 was our second summer vacationing in Martha's Vineyard, and it was our second time renting the Carpenter home. The house really felt like "home," and we didn't realize how much we loved and missed the house until we returned the second time.
With it being our second time there, we were settled in much quicker, and really used the space. Hanging out on the dock in the late afternoon and jumping right off the dock into Lake Tashmoo were some of our best memories from this past summer. We had an incredible week with only one morning of light rain, and we had a lot of family that came to visit and stay with us, from Boston and even San Antonio. Another highlight was getting home-cooked meals from local restaurant Scottish Bakehouse -- we grilled up some of their homemade lamb burgers, and just had some amazing family dinners on the back deck of the house. Lots of memories made, especially for the kids. And while the babies were sleeping, we often used the back living room (where the TV is) for exercising -- last year it was WiiFit, and this year we all did a Gyrokinesis video. We'll have to come up with something else this coming year :)
The property is very clean, very well maintained, and Curt, the owner, provides an amazing level of customer service. He even went the extra step to email us some of his family's personal favorite attractions of the entire island.
The house is perfect for larger groups who need to be able to spread out a little, and who need multiple adult bedrooms (one bedroom has three twin beds -- all the rest have larger beds for adults). The kitchen is well-equipped, and the home has a level of privacy that really makes it feel secluded, yet it's only minutes from everything you'd need as far as restaurants, shops, and grocery stores. The views are absolutely gorgeous -- we could just stare at that Lake forever.
Looking forward to returning this coming summer -- highly recommend this place!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words and helpful guidance to other prospective guests. We loved having you back and we're glad that the magic of Tashmoo hasn't lost its magic the second time around. Looking forward to your return. The Carpenter's.
