My brother (Michael Wild) and myself built this charming Vineyard 'Camp' in the 1960's. It has a piano, a full library of art, philosophy and history books of Martha's Vineyard. The house contains original art of many Island artist. The 10 acres is on Edgartown Great Pond and a private sandy beach with open fields and blueberry bushes. The house itself is nestled in a grove of scrub oaks with a porch facing the sunset. The property is surrounded by a 250 acre working farm and is 3 miles from the center of Edgartown(a perfect bike ride). South beach can be accessed by boat or a 1/2 mile to the public access (right fork).

The Owner purchased this house in 1940

My parents farmed what is now Herring Creek Farm in the 40's. They cultivated alfalfa, potatoes and chickens. When they sold the farm in the late 40's they keep 20 acres - this is now 'forever wild'. A rustic get-away you will enjoy with your children and pets and will never forget.

Bring your own boat (25 hp limit) or use (at your own risk) some of our Kayaks. You can access South beach and fish for blue fish and stripped bass. The pond has steamers and sometimes blue crabs. Our beach has a dock as well. There is also a fire pit, perfect for roasting marshmallows and some-mores.

Differnet Bites for different likes....It's all about what to EXPECT of this place! If you are looking for nature, isolation and a city escape but don't prefer to pitch a tent or tow a trailer, It's exterior is deceivingly "campy", complete with Barbecue pit and wood pile. But you certainly won't be "roughing it" as inside is quite spacious, clean and comfy/cozy, complete with charming beach house decor, wood floors and walls yet has all the MODERN amenities you'll need. It's off the beaten track but not far from anything. Gorgeous farmlands and bike trails abound surround this hidden treasure. A private pond with all the boating essentials and a quirky Lady Liberty Statue to help you navigate back. The surrounding dirt roads and grassy paths are worth walking and randomly scattered with idiosyncratic trinkets and statues including a prefectly nestled Budha. There are a few other cottages in the vicinity but is very quiet and private (aside from the proximity of the owners home, which I ultimately did not find to be a hinderance as she steers clear - however, if you do manage to get to know her she's quite the character!) Bring plenty of incidentals and stock the fridge because once you settle in and plant yourself on one of the front porch chairs you might not want to get back in the car to go anywhere for a while! Enjoy your stay at Camp Becky.
