Enter our vacation world up a .2 mile paved driveway through the woods to the private hilltop with only two other houses. Open the gate and delight at the expanse of ocean view from the deck over oak trees - our 3 1/2 acres adjacent to a sanctuary seem like 100. Listen to the birds and the surf from the hammock or rocking chairs on the covered porch.
Come into the 2 story central room flanked by two tables - a soaring brick fireplace with a woodstove and a reading nook in the back corner. Look into the kitchen fully equipped - a really large fridge - with a washer and dryer toward the back door. Pick the herbs growing out the door in a window box. We also like to leave condiments so you can start cooking!
Turn left to the wing with the Queen master bedroom, the Queen second bedroom and the charming single - all open to the deck and ocean view.
Two nice bathrooms, one with a stall shower, another with generous tub. Great water pressure and lots of hot water- outside shower too.
Up the stairs to 2 loft bedrooms with full cherry platform beds plus closets. All beds are firm with reading lights. Clock radios in each room.
The thick honeyed pine walls make the cottage amazingly quiet. We find the quality of sleep to be exceptionally good!

Our first trip to the Vineyard was by bike to the Youth Hostel - then after years of renting up-island and of searching - it was love at first sight when we saw and purchased this cottage in 1984. Family, friends and happy tenants have gathered here from all over the world enjoying the unpretentious and comfortable ambiance.
We like the quiet and feeling of being removed from bustle yet having just enough interesting things to do up-island. And in the summer heat we know that if there is a breeze anywhere we get to enjoy it on our porch!
