Guestbook comments from the owner

This has to be the cutest cottage on the Vineyard! My wife and I stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. Great location, close to everything, and the grounds are beautiful. Edgartown is just down the road as well as Chappaquiddick Island and all the lovely beaches. Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven are close by for all your shopping and dining pleasures. Or, just sit and relax on the front porch! Beautiful place for a couple to enjoy everything that MV has to offer, we had a ball! You can't miss with this terrific cottage rental.

AMAZING PLACE FOR THE PERFECT RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This was my first trip to Martha’s Vineyard and I couldn’t have found a more wonderful place to stay. The cottage is absolute perfection. From the moment I arrived, I instantly I felt at home. The interior is beautifully decorated and one feels the love and caring that went into the selection of furniture and furnishings that all contribute to a warm homey vibe. The rooms are charming, cozy, and spacious. No detail has been overlooked.

Practical worries were banished as the cottage has a comfortable queen-size bed, excellent water pressure, a full-size washer/dryer, and plentiful outlets, new and grounded, so no worries about plugging in electronics. The cottage has central heat and air conditioning along with a working gas fireplace, making it ideal for all seasons. The full bathroom has a bathtub/shower. All fixtures are modern and there is excellent lighting (with dimmers) in every room. The sun streams in through the windows on all four sides during the day. There is also a wood-enclosed, hot water outdoor shower along a flagstone path from the back door of the bedroom. The cottage was built as a year-round destination.

The exterior is private, situated on beautifully landscaped grounds and in the last week of August, during my stay, the trees and flowers were in full bloom. There is a lovely front porch where I spent a lot of time, as well as large well-tended lawns surrounding the back and sides extending to the tree lines of the property. Other areas are filled with plants, flowers, and gardens.

The cottage is perfect for couples looking for a romantic getaway, as well as for a single seeking a personal retreat with all the creature comforts. I was traveling solo and wanted quiet, nature and solitude, without feeling like I was in an “alone in the woods slasher film.” The peace and serenity I experienced during my stay was unparalleled. It was the perfect antidote to too much city life.

The cottage is within walking distance to several natural habitats and town and one can easily get around on foot, by bike, or car. Cabs were plentiful, prompt, and inexpensive as I didn’t always want to walk to town.

Lynne and Rich (gracious lovely people) checked in on me without being intrusive and had prepped the cottage immaculately in advance.

I am looking forward to a return trip as I already miss the mornings spent sitting on the front porch with my coffee, reading, writing, thinking, and watching nature.

The Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have been vacationing on Martha's Vineyard for 20 years. We have stayed in many different types of rentals. The wisteria cottage has to be one of the best. It's very clean and decorated perfectly for a cottage. It's a stroll to town and has everything you need. The gardens are amazing. The outdoor shower is the perfect touch to end of a relaxing day. The pictures just don't do it justice. We hope to stay again next year!

Pure Relaxation

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had the pure pleasure of staying a week at Rich and Lynn's cottage. The place is just perfect for a relaxing escape from reality.

It's a short walk or bike ride to all of the great restaurants and shops in downtown Edgartown and beaches are easily accessible. Additionally, they put together a terrific little book of great suggestions to give you a head start if you're not familiar with the area or attractions.

The property was very well taken care of and clean and everything was functioning as it should be. The flowers and garden was perfectly manicured and is more beautiful than the photos suggest. Also, the grill out back was great for a couple nights when we wanted to home cook some local fresh seafood.

I would definitely recommend staying here to unwind and enjoy the serenity of Martha's Vineyard. We are looking forward to our opportunity to come back!

A Fabulous Cottage in a Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5
This has to be the most charming cottage on the island. It is in a quiet area but close to town. The living room with the stone fireplace is so cozy! The surrounding gardens are an added delight (even though I was there early in the season), And the walk into Edgartown where there are many shops and restaurants is only 10 minutes through a lovely residential area. This is a hidden gem!

Delightful Edgartown Escape

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at the cottage for the past few summers and have found it the perfect romantic getaway from our busy city lives. To get to the cottage, you walk down a pathway through beautifully maintained gardens that evoke feelings of Provence. The cottage itself is super clean and has a cute island décor with plenty of places to curl up with a good book. I agree with previous reviews about the comfort of the bed – as I got a good night’s sleep even while quite pregnant! The washer and dryer are also a nice convenience, especially when you’re there for a longer stay. We love the cottage’s close proximity to town, and would walk in for breakfast, dinner, or a sunset drink. The Vineyard – and Edgartown in particular – has some of the best beaches in New England. Wide stretches of white sand and warm water! It’s easy to get to the beaches either by car or bike. We’re foodies and appreciate the abundance of dining options and farms in the area, and the owners were very helpful in providing recommendations. We look forward to escaping there in the summer of 2013!

Beautiful cottage in great location!

  • 5 of 5
We've rented several houses on Martha's Vineyard and this is by far our favorite. It is cute, comfortable, and the location is perfect - walking distance to town but far enough off the main streets that you have privacy and quiet. The owners know the Vineyard inside and out and have a lot of good ideas for restaraunts, activities, and beaches. There's no better way to start the day than with a cup of coffee while sitting on the porch overlooking the gardens. I'm looking forward to returning this summer!
