The Writer’s Cottage is a beautifully designed gem of a place in a secluded spot on Tisbury Great Pond. Extraordinary views, birds, sunsets, vegetation, walks and boating. Swim in the cove, sail, kayak or canoe to South Beach (the “cut”). Ideal for those who seek a “low carbon footprint.” Electricity but no TV. Lighting is mixture of gas lights and electric lamps.
A Beautiful Cabin and Beautiful Location: This beautifully designed and maintained cabin on Deep Bottom Cove, one of the finger coves of Tisbury Great Pond, is an escape from it all. Designed as a writer’s cottage, the cabin nestles peacefully in a remote location, with only a couple of other houses in distant view. The surroundings are beautiful, and the views of the cove spectacular. The cove beach is thirty seconds from the house where you can swim, sail, canoe and kayak. Sail or kayak to South Beach. The cabin has gas lights as well as a few electric lamps, but no TV or other gadgets. Small but fully equipped kitchen. Full bathroom with tub plus outdoor shower.
The cabin gives you access to the 'quiet' side of the island, but is also a great base for visiting the wonderful galleries, restaurants, and stores in the island towns.
Off-season: It is particularly nice to visit the cabin in the off-season. The cabin is on the road that is the winter entrance to the Trustees of the Reservation Long Point Wildlife Refuge. Before June 15 and after September 15 the winter entrance gate to the refuge is open, so you can walk or drive out there in just a few minutes from the cabin. This gives you easier access to South Beach. The cabin is beautiful in any weather, and the huckleberry scrub is particularly lovely in spring and fall. The snug cabin has a wood stove for heat and warms up very nicely!
