Bedroom Notes: Master with king is at one end of the house... east of the great room., At the west end of the house are the Kitchen, 2 bedrooms One with King and full bath adj. One with Queen and twin and pvt full bath. The Rec room on the lower level, ( has pool table, extra refrigerator, and full over full bunks and 1/2 bath and laundry room adj. This is NOT a real bedroom it's a basement area with painted concrete, but great for short stay overflow or teenagers who need their own space.

This is a fantastic private base from which to: Explore the Island of Martha's Vineyard , or just or stay home and relax! At night you can see the twinkle of the mainland lights over the chain of the Elizabeth Islands, and also those of ships passing in the sound.

The sound of the wind in the pines and the sight of the wildlife that abound are both very grounding. The wildlife include, deer, rabbits, squirrels, wild turkeys, pheasant, and many raptors. Approximately one quarter mile distant there are miles and miles of nature trails to explore. This location is the 3rd highest on the island. ( both Prospect and Peaked are a few feet higher!) There are miles and miles of trails on other nearby reservations. Menemsha Hills, Fulling Mill Brook are both also nearby.

Calendar may not include tentative or reservations whose payments are in transit.

About Betty Martin

The owner spends time here during the off season, but prefers to summer at one of his other homes.

Why Betty Martin chose Martha's Vineyard

This is an architectural piece and has some lovely art furniture. The design which is 50's modern, has timeless appeal that allows the outside to come in and the terrace extends the living space during summer in a welcome way.

What makes this house unique

This is a great home for extended families as it affords a great room for being together but separate places to retreat into such as the screened porch off of the Master Suite or the adjoining porches to both of the other bedrooms at the opposite end of the house as well as the terrace.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our extended family enjoyed a wonderful reunion here. The terrace was the site of some wonderful dinners! We enjoyed the hot tub almost every evening and some mornings as well. It was a little off of the main road but well worth the time to get to.

The beaches were absolutely splendid and we were surprised the water was so warm yet.

We are still talking about it hoping to return.

Serene private setting

  • 5 of 5

The property is very private/quiet and beautiful. As a renter it's great, a few minor things that are in disrepair (the bathroom door that is hard to get closed, etc.) are not a big deal. It's a beautiful (if dated) home that sadly hasn't been kept up the way it should have, but it's a stunning setting and has a great feel. Great spot to take long walks in just about any direction, convenient to Chilmark town center, West Tisbury and Vineyard Haven. There is one neighbor visible to the south and the houses are close enough to hear each other if people are loud but otherwise there is no sign of civilization to distract from the peaceful abode this is. Indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a great, large stone patio to eat or lounge on, and a large yard.

Betty and Laurie were great to deal with. In fact Betty I would say was arguably the easiest and best person I have dealt with for any rental, anywhere. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: The bathroom door malfunction happened just prior to this tenants stay and has been attended too. Saying that a period home has not been maintained to a sufficient degree and only being able to say that the bathroom door didn't shut with ease is a reflection on the degree of a persons expectations as much as the degree of maintenance. This home has recently had many improvements and has many repeat tenants.

An Island of Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

How grateful I am for our relaxing stay. It was truly special with too many good things to write about. First we found the location centrally located to many things. The house is beautiful and very comfortable with the terrace extending the space so well. When I could drag myself out of the wonderful Roma Steam Shower, I enjoyed the Hot Tub, especially at night under the stars. I was pleasantly surprised at the abundance of wildlife we saw. The beaches were fabulous...simply perfect for a wonderful day of sun worshiping. It was extrememly hard for us to leave, but we left with many unique memories and plan on returning soon.
