About Nancy Ferguson

We are attorneys who live most of the year in New Albany, Ohio and have vacationed on Martha's Vineyard regularly since 1980. We have travelled many places, but believe Martha's Vineyard is one of the best places on earth!

We purchased our home in Vineyard Haven in 2008 as a gathering place for our extended family. We love it and hope your family will as well.

Nancy Ferguson purchased this house in 2008

Why Nancy Ferguson chose Vineyard Haven

We love Vineyard Haven for its great shopping, restaurants, and proximity to the ferry. It is home to the island's best bookstore and lots of home decor stores, galleries, coffee shops and 4 theaters! Unlike the other towns on Martha's Vineyard, most of the Vineyard Haven stores and restaurants remain open in the off-season.

Our shingle style house was built in 1898 by William Barry Owen, a local real estate developer and owner of the Martha's Vineyard Bank.

When Mr. Owen bought the Martha's Vineyard Bank, he decided to move it from Edgartown to his hometown of Vineyard Haven. He hired J. Williams Beal, an architect, to design the 'Stone Bank' just down the street in Vineyard Haven. J. Williams Beal is also believed to be the architect of our home.

The home was later sold to Captain Henry Stevenson, it's first occupant. Captain Stevenson owned a freight boat, the Eben A. Thatcher, which was a fixture in Vineyard Haven harbor for many years.

What makes this house unique

The location of this property, near both the beach and downtown, is an unbeatable combination. The house's character, its in-town location, its expansive porch, its view of Vineyard Haven harbor, and its proximity to Owen Park Beach (one block), sold us instantly. It is rare to find a property that allows the occupants to easily enjoy both the beach and a downtown atmosphere.

Beautiful rental in Vineyard Haven

  • 5 of 5
This rental was every that was promised. The house is a beautiful island home in the heart of Vineyard Haven. The house is within walking distance to the town. There are wonderful galleries, restaurants, clothing stores and shops to explore in town. The house is comfortable, charming, and beautifully decorated. The beds are comfortable and the bedrooms are spacious. The kitchen is well equipped with cooking apparatus and serving ware. All the necessary appliances needed to cook wonderful meals are available. The best part of the house is the beautiful porch that overlooks the harbor. The swing on the porch brought back many wonderful memories of our childhoods. It is a very relaxing space to read, nap, have conversations, and just relax. Nancy and Jerry were extremely helpful with information about places to eat, sight to see, and things that were fun to do on the island. I would recommend this rental to anyone wanting to visit Martha's Vineyard!

Perfect Location for Exploring Martha's Vineyard

Perfect Location for Exploring Martha's Vineyard
  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at this rental for our first visit to Martha's Vineyard. What a wonderful location! As stated, it is within walking distance to all of the unique shops and restaurants of Vineyard Haven. The charming house is beautifully decorated, the rooms are spacious, and the house is well maintained. Our favorite spot was the back porch where we spent numerous hours relaxing and enjoying the view of the harbor. Perfect for morning breakfast, reading, enjoying a cocktail, or a lobster bake in the evening. Since this was our first time on Martha's Vineyard, Nancy was a wealth of information on restaurants, grocery stores, sightseeing and things not to miss on the Vineyard! Having a place to park the car was especially important as parking is limited and it was nice to be able to take our car and explore the rest of the island. We would definitely recommend this property for your visit to Martha's Vineyard. It's a wonderful place to stay!!
