PASTORAL HIDEAWAY---WALK TO OCEAN @ EXCLUSIVE LAMBERT'S COVE BEACH

West Tisbury Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Pristine & secluded, walk to ocean, pond, & conservation area

Traveling on a budget but looking for a private, pristine property in a natural setting? Appreciate walking to the ​ocean at one of the most beautiful sand beaches you'll ever find? Bright, airy, and secluded, our property is a contemporary​ open floor space w/ high ceilings, lots of windows, tasteful decor, an outdoor hot-water shower,and small deck overlooking 2 acres of woods.

You'll easily walk to exclusive Lambert's Cove Beach-described by NY Times as a ​world-clas​s​ swimming spot with 'perfect water' for those looking for summer 'magic'. [The Magic of Swimming on Martha's Vineyard, Travel, New York Times, August 10, 2014].​

Our part of the Island is an oasis of peacefulness and natural beauty. While daytrippers pour into Oak Bluffs and Edgartown, West Tisbury is a hidden​ 'up-island'​ gem--the laid-back and charming agricultural center of the Island where the Island farmers live. Walk down our road and you'll hear a rooster crowing and fresh eggs for sale (on the honor system!). The twice-weekly West Tisbury Farmer's Market and Artisan's Fair are a draw from all over the Island.

Our hideaway offers an ideal location--secluded and private yet minutes away from the ocean, ponds, and all the other “good stuff” you'd expect from a Vineyard get-away.

You can not only walk to the ocean and ponds, but also to gourmet dining @ Lambert's Cove Inn.

Also near our property: upscale State Road restaurant, bakeries, farmer's market/farm stands, casual eats, artisan fairs, art galleries, an arboretum, nature preserves and hiking trails, live theater, & a state- of- the- art movie center where directors are frequent hosts to new films.

Thanks to our central Island location, ​getting around the Island could not be easier. We are​ even on a bus route that takes bicycles!

As hands-on owners who use this property ourselves, we take meticulous care of both the interior and the grounds. I think you'll find from reading our reviews that the attention and care we devote to ensuring that our guests have a good experience is much appreciated.We take great pride in sharing the Island, and especially the timeless charm of West Tisbury with all our guests.

Alice purchased this cottage in 2006

Our location is rare--it's centrally located on the Island yet very secluded in the wooded agricultural center of the Island.

On even the busiest day of the summer, eg July 4, you will be far away from the tourists and the traffic yet minutes away from fine dining, galleries, art festivals, farmer's markets, conservation areas, and hiking/biking trails.

Location, location location! You'll be a short walk from one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere--Lambert's Cove (which is accessible only to residents and tenants of West Tisbury) as well as to a freshwater swimming ponds.

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, daughter and I just returned home from our first visit to Martha's Vineyard and couldn't be happier. The property was beyond anything we could have expected. The living quarters were immaculate, bright and cheerful. Stocked with all the amenities we needed to enjoy our stay. The place just looks very well cared for. The surrounding area is gorgeous. Perfect for bike rides or strolls. Lots of nearby shops, farmers markets, antique fairs and such to wander through in West tisbury and Vineyard Haven.
We took full advantage of the beautiful lambert's cove beach which is a lovely walk from the property through lush woods and a winding country lane. At times, we had the beach almost entirely to ourselves. My daughter, (7) loved it!

It was our first time to the island and we decided to leave our car on the mainland. The bus system is more than adequate, and we were able to see the entire island. It was great to be able to experience the hustle and bustle of the busier towns on the island and head back to the tranquility of west tisbury at the end of the day. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the owners, Alice and Ken. To say they went out of their way to make our stay comfortable would be an understatement, and for that I am truly appreciative. Thanks so much for the wonderful memories!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments Dan. The peaceful, natural setting of our property (and the town of West Tisbury) is indeed an oasis from the traffic and tourist crowds. Being in the agricultural center of the Island yet close to everything is something we love as well. We really enjoyed having you and your family as guests. Your little girl is just adorable (we miss her already!)
Regards,
Alice

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
Our first time on this magical island and most certainly not our last. Our only regret is that we didn't have an additional week to explore.

Alice and Ken are wonderful. The accommodations were just as advertised, only nicer. Cozy, private, convenient and immaculate. Perfect for a young couple from the city on a budget and not looking to be in the middle of a mob scene.

You both are so gracious and helpful. I have to tell you, the morning walk to the beach was a highlight along with the great shopping and memorable meal at Copper Wok.

See you next year, we will make our arrangements after the New Year.

Owner's Response: Hi Scott,
We really enjoyed meeting you and your fiance! For us, it's just wonderful to get to know our guests who return every year. I agree that being able to walk to the beach and avoid the crowds makes our property special. Looking forward to seeing you again next summer
Best,
Alice

"Just right."

Before arriving, we'd convinced ourselves that our Martha's Vineyard fantasy - to be located near to up-island, at a great biking take-off point, in a clean, well-appointed and affordable place, with a private beach, and a walk-to, swimmable, beautiful pond was not achievable. But this is exactly what we found. The apartment is very clean, thoughtfully stocked, with a wonderful bed, and Alice, who is earnest in her commitment to support the best visit possible. Foodies take note: plan for a one-burner stove top, an ample convection/toaster oven, coffee maker, microwave and a grill. We enjoyed getting creative with that configuration. We biked the island, walked to Lambert's Cove Beach and to the freshwater pond. I've stayed at many 2-person apartments at the Vineyard and this was by far the best.

Enjoyed it even more the second time!

  • 5 of 5
We just got home from staying at Alice and Ken's studio for the second year in a row and can't wait to visit again next summer. The space is lovely, light, airy and new, and the location can't be beat if you want relaxation rather than crowds. We stayed with our 4 year old daughter and the size of the studio was perfect for us. It had everything we needed. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, pots and pans, a full-sized fridge, microwave, burner and convection oven/toaster. The bath has a tub and shower and a washing machine. No dryer, but my daughter really enjoyed helping me hang the clothes out to dry in the fresh air. It was great fun. There's a sweet little porch with two chairs and a table, a hammock and a wonderful outdoor shower. And, as before, we loved having access to Lambert's Cove beach, which is a very beautiful and uncrowded spot. We feel as though we've discovered the perfect getaway spot for our little family and plan to return next year. If you want the noisy, crowded atmosphere of Oak Bluffs, then this isn't the place for you. But if you are looking for a peaceful little retreat that is well-located and a short drive to almost anywhere on the vineyard, you've found it!

Peaceful. Pristine. Pretty much Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My second summer staying at what I have come to love as my "magical treehouse". Surrounded by quiet and privacy and trees this is a beautiful space above a large garage. All amenities provided; clean and modern. My favorite things: Outdoor shower, so close to Lambert's Cove Beach and Landbank owned Ice Pond which is beautiful, very nice owners yet all the privacy one would need. Truly wonderful!

We were so pleased to have you and Tom be our guests again this year. Your "favorites" list was fun to hear. We do have a very special spot on the Island indeed! Thanks for taking the time to write your comments.

A lovely hideaway!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay last summer at this wonderful little hideaway. I was a bit concerned about the size - there were three of us - me, my husband and our 3 year old daughter. But, the space is layed out beautifully and we were all very comfortable. There is a lot of great stuff packed into this studio - a bathroom with a tub/shower, comfy bed, extra twin bed, adorable kitchen with a full fridge, and storage space in the garage to boot! We were even able to find adequate space for our daughter's pack and play without it getting in the way. And we were thrilled that there was a washing machine (cleverly tucked under the bathroom counter). There isn't a dryer, but it was fun hanging our clothes out to dry on the clothesline with my daughter.

Staying here allowed us access to the glorious Lambert's Cove Beach ~ what a treat. And although the studio is on the same property as the main house, we had our own driveway lots of privacy . Alice and her husband are warm and friendly, and we look forward to seeing them again when we return this summer. Happily, we can pack a bit lighter because Alice has thought of everything!
