Sorry- it looks like we may be fully booked for 2012 season... we'll update listing if that changes. Thank you! 1/19/12 Charming 2 story antique family home in historic district, steps to Surf Drive Beach. Prime walking area with access to downtown shops and restaurants, bike path, conservation areas, harbor & ferries, and on route of Falmouth Road Race. Suitable for large families, with traditional dining room seating 12, large sun room (shaded in afternoon), living room, eat-in kitchen, private patio and lawn, ocean views, and off street parking. Limited rental season in August- please consult calendar.
This historic home was built in the days of sailing ships, near the historic commercial harbor (now the Old Stone Dock and Surf Drive beach). Expanded throughout the years, and updated/ renovated in 2004, the house was completely refurnished by new owners in 2010. One first floor suite accommodates older guests, with a half bath and 1 queen bed. Two steep staircases lead to a rambling second level with 3 full baths and 6 more bedrooms (eleven twin beds). Two bedrooms share a small balcony, five have excellent views of the ocean and Martha's Vineyard. The first floor has a mud room/ laundry, eat-in chef's kitchen, covered porch, patio with large gas grill (new in 2010), large dining room with antique farm table for 12, large sun room with new television, traditional front living room, and private lawn and gardens. Surf Drive beach, with snack bar and bathrooms, is a very short walk down Shore Street (see photos and map).
A perfect location for exploring Falmouth on foot (we're on the Falmouth Road Race route) or by car, with easy access to Surf Drive, Main Street dining and shopping, Falmouth Harbor (and ferries), Shining Sea Bike Path, and Woods Hole. In addition to the Surf Drive beach and bath house just steps from our door, Falmouth offers beaches on Buzzards Bay, Vineyard Sound, and Nantucket Sound, as well as several different harbors and shopping/dining districts. Bicycling, sport fishing, marinas and yacht services, museums, shopping, dining, and all without leaving town! But of course the rest of Cape Cod is within a short day trip from this location, and 3 nearby ferry services provide easy access to Martha's Vineyard.
