This very private, peaceful retreat is set deep in the woods on 7 acres of rolling hills just a half-mile from Lambert's Cove Beach. It includes everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Four large bedrooms sleep eight in comfort. The spacious living and dining rooms are divided by a unique three-sided fireplace. A comfortable family room adjoins the fully-equipped kitchen. The wide outdoor deck overlooks a small stream and includes a screened porch (ideal for curling up with a book or sleeping).
For the adventurous, additional sleeping is available in a rustic 'cabin-in-the-woods' across the stream.
This is a beach-lover's paradise. Lambert's Cove beach, one of the most beautiful and quiet beaches on the Island, is available to West Tisbury residents and their guests only. The owner can also provide access to a private, gated beach in Chilmark on the south side of the Island. If you like fresh-water swimming, there are two small ponds, Seth's Pond and Ice House Pond, less than a mile away.
Shopping and the ferry are within a ten-minute drive. The owner, who is a native islander, is happy to provide 'insider information' on the best of Martha's Vineyard.
I am a native Vineyarder and love to share my knowledge and love of the Island. And I love to travel, fish, bicycle, kayak, sail, hike, camp, read, and knit!
My late husband and I built this, our family home, in 1972. We raised our four boys here. George passed away in 2007 and I now live elsewhere on the Island.
Above all else, guests describe my house as comfortable and quiet. It immediately feels like home, not a 'rental' property. Many have said their favorite spot is the screened porch, where they enjoy reading, playing card games, and leisurely breakfasts.
