Truly spectacular view out over Deep bottom Cove, one of the 'fingers' of Tisbury Great Pond. This house is unique and special, the real McCoy -- a traditional shingled summer camp, the way the Vineyard used to be long ago! Secluded, low carbon footprint. No TV, dishwasher or microwave. This is a place for a return to simplicity... Gas lights.
Four bedrooms, including a separate master bedroom with bathroom. Sleeps seven, plus extra cot bed and double mattress. Small bathtub and delightful outdoor shower. Large wrap around deck with outdoor seating. Hammock. Fully equipped kitchen, telephone, washer and drier.
Beautiful surroundings, spectacular views of the cove. Only a few other houses in distant view. Gorgeous sunsets, wonderful stars at night. Herons, swans, osprey.
The cove beach is is right in front of the house. You can swim, sail, canoe and kayak. Sail or kayak to the ocean beach. We have two sunfishes, three kayaks and a canoe.
Special house, special location: Visitors to the house immediately see how special it is! The location is unbelievable--on a bluff looking over the water. The house is what the Vineyard used to be: relaxed, uncluttered, unpretentious, well-worn and beloved. The bench on the deck looking over the water is a natural gathering place. The path in front of the house takes you down to the beach in a minute and then you can swim, sail, canoe and kayak. Sail or kayak to South Beach. Nature is all around...osprey, swans, herons, and hummingbirds.
Spring and fall: It is particularly nice to visit the house in the spring and fall. The house 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. This gives you easier access to South Beach. The house is beautiful in any weather, and the huckleberry scrub is particularly lovely in spring and fall.
Another house next door: We also have a smaller house next door. Check out the linked listing. (Property # 283355)
