A Charming Vineyard Cottage Just Off the Pond

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,300 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

2-3 bedrooms, two full baths, EIK, a/c, wifi, on nearly an acre of woods

Remember when summer vacations meant spending long perfect days near the water? This simple wooden Vineyard cottage with its exposed beamed eat-in kitchen, two bedrooms plus a third bedroom/living room (with futon), two full baths, HDTV, wifi, and every modern convenience will remind you of how delightful and easy life can be. Located just outside of Edgartown, on a private, nearly one-acre wooded lot just off beautiful Sengekontacket Pond, this cottage will give you a quiet summer vacation without a care in the world.

We renovated the cottage in 2013, adding a new kitchen, flooring, windows and air conditioning; in 2014 we added a sun room; and have continued to make improvements every year.

About Steven Schulman

We live in Chevy Chase, Maryland, but wish we could be on the Vineyard all year. This cottage is our dream vacation every summer, and we love sharing it with others. Our two boys have grown up in the cottage and both learned to ride bikes on the Boulevard, a quiet street that is nothing like a boulevard!

Steven Schulman purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Steven Schulman chose Edgartown

We fell in love with this cottage when we saw it in 2003, after we had been coming to the Vineyard since the mid-1990s. It is secluded and quiet, yet an easy bike ride into Edgartown. We have maintained it lovingly, keeping it simple and uncluttered, and recently renovated it with new windows, kitchen cabinets, bamboo floors and A/C. In 2014, we enclosed the back deck to create a breezy and open three-season room. In 2017, we will improve the living room to be used as a potential third bedroom.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage was originally a fisherman's cottage in central Edgartown, but many years ago was loaded on a truck and brought out to this wooded lot just off Sengekontacket Pond. It is a nice quiet area, perfect for a relaxing vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We purchased this cottage in November 2003 from a couple who had renovated it and rented it out for a few years. We had been vacationing on the Vineyard for eight years when we bought it, and though we had never stayed in this cottage, we immediately fell in love with it (we had stayed in the neighborhood two different summers, and like the woodsy feel around Sengekontacket Pond). The cottage has a classic Vineyard feel, but is very clean and uncluttered. The owners kept it like their own home, and we plan to do the same. We hope you enjoy your stay in our cottage, and please don't hesitate to contact us if we can make your stay more enjoyable.

A perfect cottage for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a nice weekend at this cottage when we were at Martha's Vineyard for a wedding. Although the weather wasn't great, the house is so cozy and is furnished with all the amenities we would ever use. We did not have a great deal of free time but we did find time to walk along some of the surrounding trails. We would definitely go there again to enjoy the house and the restaurants and activities that the Schulmans recommended.

Perfect Timing Perfect Weather!

  • 5 of 5

The stay was perfect and quite comfortable as well. The location is nice and quiet but close enough to everything. The beds were very comfortable and it was easy to do everything. I cannot thank the Steve enough. He answered all my questions and was available if anything came up. I hope to stay here again this or next summer! I highly recommend this place to families and large groups.

Secluded cottage Between Edgartown and Vineyard Haven

  • 4 of 5

Four college gals had our annual reunion in Martha's Vineyard. The rental is actually on The Boulevard near 9th street. Nicely tucked in among the trees, very quiet. The beds were comfortable. The wine upon arrival was a nice touch. The enclosed patio was a fun place to lounge. The owner was responsive. Suggestion....bring shower soap, nice towels and washcloths.

Ate at Chesca's for our big night out. Art Cliff diner had the best pancakes layered with pears and nuts. Only had a 20 minute wait. We could not find the access to the pond but we were busy enough. Chappaquidick tour to lighthouse was worth it.

Handicapped beware, stairs up to the rental.

Cute house - perfect for our family with young kids!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our short getaway to the Vineyard with our two preschool age children. The house had the perfect amount of space for us, a nice family room with a wifi TV, comfy couches, a well appointed kitchen (note to anyone staying there, don't buy coffee filters, there are about 300 in the drawer next to the stove!), comfortable beds, and two big bathrooms. All the space we needed. It was in a great location close to Edgartown (our favorite town). And was a nice easy walk to a little beach on the pond.

My only feedback would be the towels could use a little re-fresh. Everything was very clean, just many of the towels were frayed or had bleach stains.

But really we had a great time and hope we are able to come back in the future!
