About Ben Spencer
Ben and Georgia are physicians in private practice in Northern Westchester and Putnam Counties specializing in Urology and Gastroenterology.
Ben Spencer purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Ben Spencer chose Vineyard Haven
I visited the island as a kid many times, spent summers during college working on the island, and when I found myself in Boston for my medical residency during the 1990's, I had the opportunity of pursuing my dream of having a Vineyard retreat of my own. To us, the house and property represent all that makes the Vineyard so special: hand-built house is a piece of artwork itself, gorgeous physical setting, close proximity to conservation lands with ponds and beaches, and an overall otherwordly feeling make one feel transported from our more hectic lives at home.
What makes this Cottage unique
Gorgeous setting, Land Bank properties and conservation lands in walking distance, Seth's Pond, multiple outbuildings allow for expanding to larger groups, each with their own private and quiet spot.

7th year in a row!
We love it, time and time again. A magical place.
Great stay at an excellent place!
Wonderful quite spot on the island. Nice clean house with an awesome, peaceful setting on the pond. House had everything we needed and proximity to both down and up island was great. Would certainly stay here again and Ben was most helpful with any and all information. Looking forward to another chance to stay at Flat Bottom Pond.
Great property with lots of beautiful details. Felt like a human sized hobbit home!
Very comfortable and well designed. There were minor things that could be improved but nothing worth mentioning. Ben was really great to work with, very responsive and thoughtful.
Wonderful break in a beautiful place
The home was everything you expect and see on the site and more. We had a wonderful stay and Ben the host was very helpful when we had a few questions. I'd love to go back one day.
Perfect place to wake up Christmas morning.
Just as described
The house and property are lovely and isolated. It's a wonderful place to say if you want peace and quiet. It was a bit more rustic than I expected but nothing that should put anyone off it.
My only complaint was working with the owner. He asked us to move our plans and stay for only 4 nights after we had paid for 5 days. He did offer to give refund us for 2 nights instead of just one night. However, at this point (nearly 11 days later) we have yet to receive that refund. I'm not sure if this delay is because we mistakenly checked out later (11am instead of 9:30am). Regardless, it is a bit frustrating and I'm not sure if I have any chance at getting my money back.
