About the property

House (3 BR/2 full baths & outdoor shower) sleeps 6 (King, Queen, 2 twins)

The house is located on ten acres on Tisbury Great Pond, a very large salt water pond in the secluded and rural Quansoo area of Chilmark; your rental includes a Quansoo Beach Association key. The property is situated on 600' of pond front on Tisbury Great Pond's western shore. The three bedroom, two bath house (plus enclosed outdoor shower) sleeps six and has full pond and Quansoo Beach views. The one and one-half mile private oceanfront of the Quansoo Beach Association's beach is just 1/2 mile via the included motorboat or kayaks, or 7/10 mile by foot or car down our small private road.

A/C added in spring 2017; new furniture in living room spring 2017.

Located well off the beaten track, this area of Quansoo typifies the 'old' Vineyard of single-lane dirt roads, rural seclusion, and views of field, pond, ocean, and beach. The ten acres front on Tisbury Great Pond and share two other contiguous parcels of pond shore with a community trust. Oak and pine shield the house, assuring privacy. All wiring is underground.

Originally a hunting camp built in the late 1800's, the property has been modernized and expanded over the past dozen years without losing any of its original charm or privacy. During the winter of 2015, for instance, the entire center of the house, including kitchen, living room, dining room and sun porch, was completely rebuilt and refurbished into a single, open space. In addition, the master bathroom was also completely renovated.

The house includes three bedrooms with cathedral ceilings and ceiling fans, two with pond views; the master suite is separated from the guest bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king (linens supplied for all beds, as well a six beach towels); the other 2 bedrooms, both with private outside entrances, have a queen and two twins between them. In the new configuration of the center of the home, the kitchen and dining room are open one another, and an entertainment island divides the kitchen from the great room. French doors in the dining room (seating for 10) open onto a full deck with lounges. The deck overlooks the pond. The great room, with field stone fireplace, has extensive views of the pond.

Boats, including a 12' motorboat and 3 kayaks, are available and anchored at the pond. As noted, rental of the house includes use of the Quansoo Beach Association beach. It is one of the finest and least populated beaches on the island.
