Overview

Oak Bluffs House Rental Photos and Description

3-4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, sleeps 6-8

A beautiful, clean 2-story Victorian in the heart of the historic Copeland District of downtown Oak Bluffs. This 3-4 bedroom renovated home is located on a quiet street overlooking peaceful Hartford Park.

Our house is only two blocks to the center of town, Ocean Park, and the beach! Across Ocean Park is the ferry - no car necessary. Niantic park, with a new playground, tennis & basketball courts, is only a short walk away. Breathe fresh sea air and reconnect with nature in this distinctive home which combines the elegance of the Victorian era with the simplicity of a cottage.

The first floor has hardwood floors; the bright, airy second floor has painted wood floors and cathedral ceilings. In the front is a comfortable covered porch, in the back is a deck with a private backyard canopied with trumpet vine.

The upstairs has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a charming common room and two balconies.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a private basement apartment with separate yard and entrance occupied by owners.

Adorable home, warm family, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredible walk and really is walking distance from downtown - something you have to be careful with when it comes to location descriptions. The house is as lovely as any bread and breakfast, totally charming and well cared for. The owners are very hands on and care about you having a good time. When we were late for the ferry on the way out of town, THEY ACTUALLY GAVE US A RIDE!!! (don't expect them to do this for you though, it was so not their job - they are just that nice!). You will not be sorry to rent here.

Fabulous Week Rain or Shine

  • 5 of 5

We rented the BLT house with extended family ages 10 and up. The house was clean. It is very light and open letting the breeze blow in. We loved sitting on the big front porch. The beds are very comfortable. It has a lovely dinning area for the whole family to eat together. It is an easy walk to all attractions in the sweet town of Oak Bluffs and a quick beautiful bus ride to the other towns. We will rent this house again and would recommend it to friends.

BLT House

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous house located in the heart of Oak Bluffs. We had another great week at the BLT House....you couldn't ask for a better location and Oak Bluffs is a wonderful town on Martha's Vineyard. This house has everything you need and we were very comfortable there! Can't wait to go back in 2013!

Great Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

The location could not be better - we enjoyed walking to town for coffee each morning, nightly strolls, shopping in the quaint shops, sightseeing and the beaches. The home was exactly as represented. More room than we needed and the kitchen is well equipped for a large family. Immaculate, charming – we had a delightful stay!

We loved the BLT house. We have rented at various places in Oak Bluffs for 4 years and the BLT house is the cleanest, most beautiful and has the best location. We would highly recommend it to anyone. We will be renting it next year. The owners are very friendly and great hosts.

Thanks Brian & Lisa! Our stay at the BLT house was wonderful! We are frequent Vineyarders and have rented the same house for many, many years. This year we decided to try something new and rent close to town and the beaches. Through a web search we found the BLT House. We were a little nervous at first, but when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. Their renovated Victorian is just lovely, it is tastefully decorated, very comfortable and full of lots of little details. During our vacation week, the weather was not that great so we spent more time in the house than anticipated. Because the house was so comfortable, including the addictive wrap around porch in the front and wonderful private garden in the back, we had a fabulous time despite the bad weather. We would definitely rent the BLT house again!!
