House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Walk to historic Victorian Oak Bluffs, restaurants and harbor. Walk in five minutes to the ''Inkwell,'' sandy ocean beach, perfect for children. Next to lovely Farm Pond, far enough from town that it's quiet all the time, but close enough to walk in for anything- breakfast, or library, or groceries, or dinner out, a movie, or a warm donut from backdoor donuts late at night. Nature trails and miles of bike paths right out the door. Built in the 20's from an abandoned railroad car, this beautiful house is fully renovated. Sunny living room with hardwood floors, fully-equipped kitchen, large parlor with pool table, screen porch, dining room. Single bed and bath with large tiled shower downstairs. Upstairs are 3 charming bedrooms. Large master bedroom with balcony and half bath, queen bed. Second queen bedroom and kid's bedroom with two twin beds. Full bath with antique clawfoot tub. Large wrap-around porch with some ocean views, private patio. Outdoor shower with hot and cold water. Large yard with hammock. Perfect for a magical island family vacation!

About The Owner
We are a couple of New Englanders married over forty years who left Boston for Martha's Vineyard in 1998. We enjoy hiking the many trails and learning about the nature and history of the island. We keep a small apartment in the city and are happy to rent our house any time of year.
The Owner purchased this house in 1994
Why The Owner chose Oak Bluffs
We fell in love with Oak Bluffs and Martha's Vineyard on our first visit in the early 90's. The people we've met, the culture, the beauty everywhere, and oh, yes, the warm water...it's all been wonderful.
What makes this house unique
A peaceful, quiet street but an easy walk to the restaurants, movies and bustle of town. A pretty walk to the sandy 'Inkwell' beach, bike paths in both directions. A large selection of books and lots of places to read, inside and out. A yard big enough for family touch football, croquet or badminton. A sunset kayak paddle on the pond. The island is full of wonderful choices; fairs and festivals, artisan's shows and galleries, sports and outdoor adventures.
Guestbook comments from the owner
...and very happy here during our stay. We enjoyed the special uniqueness of an older home, decorated so well! We all slept soundly on the comfy beds and we all savored our time here in the house and out around the island. Your home's location proved to be perfect! Thank you!
