About the property

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 8

Beautifully furnished and equipped, In-town antique home which has undergone a complete renovation in 2005; yet carefully maintaining the traditional character of the home and that Vineyard 'feel'. First floor includes two bedrooms each with private bath including a first floor master suite with separate family room area, a well equipped gourmet kitchen and fireplaced living room. Up the original classic staircase are two more bedrooms and two full baths with a separate sitting area. Comfortable beds with plenty of pillows, down(alternative) comforters and Pottery Barn bedding. Catch Harbor breezes and listen to the horn from the steamship from the huge front porch amply furnished with swing and plenty of white wicker seating. A private back yard with deck, BBQ, Adirondacks and teak-like outdoor dining table. A two car garage and a private landscaped yard complete this property. Walk to restaurants, shops and ferry and own little park/beach.

History: “On 29 Apr 1851 William West Jr. of Tisbury, mariner, bought a house on the south side of Center St. for $1100” from Local builder and real estate speculators John and Elizabeth Perry. William West was a successful Whaling Captain “having sailed on the ship Enterprise of New Bedford which left on 14 Jul 1828 and returned 19 Jun 1829, and on the ship Hope of New Bedford which left on 30 Jan 1830”. In addition to the West’s this home was also owned by other well know Island names including the Isakson’s and the Brickman’s

Guest Book : June 2006

The house was great-comfortable, well-equipped, spacious and air-conditioned (we had a hot sunny week). We explored the beach at Lake Tashmoo-great if you can brave down that dirt road. We had too much Mad Martha’s and generally just had fun. We recommend the off-shore ale house in Oak Bluffs for a relaxing lunch; the Edgartown Inn for great pancakes, and the MV Bagel Authority in Vineyard Haven for- you guessed it- bagels. Don’t miss the experience of watching the sunset over the ocean in Menamsha. Pack some food or get a Lobster at the Menemsha Fish Market or the Homeport back door and sit on the beach at the end of the day-a perfect Vineyard memory! Thank you Adelmans!

Guest Book : July 2006

Thanks for the use of your fabulous home. We had a great time and absolutely loved the house. The location is the best! We were here with our two small children and our parents and no one got under foot. There was always a quiet place to relax. The beds and furniture are comfortable and the kitchen is a delight to cook in. Hope we are here again next year!

Charming In-town Greek Revival- Captain William West House
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was clean and cool (central a/c). We were 6 people and had plenty of space. The owner was so easy to deal with and gave us great ideas for our first Martha's Vineyard stay. Would definitely recommend this property. Great location...short walking distance to Main Street of Vineyard Haven. We would stay here again on our next MV visit!
