About Ellen Duncan

I grew up in Braintree, MA (just south of Boston). For the first 30 years of my life I had never been to the Vineyard.

When we turned 30, my twin sister and I decided to visit this lovely island for the first time. The moment I stepped off the ferry I was in love. Every winter I booked my vacation for the next summer and would do the count down until I could return.

While I still live in Braintree, I try and spend as much time here as possible. No matter what the season, I love coming down!

Ellen Duncan purchased this house in 2005

Why Ellen Duncan chose Edgartown Area

In 2005 I purchased this home. For me the location was ideal, it is on the bike bath, 1.5 miles to the beach and to the edge of the water in downtown Edgartown (The Atlantic on Edgartown Harbor). It also happened to be very close to one of my FAVORITE restaurants, The Square Rigger (Lobster stuffed with Lobster...YUM!).

If I am not in the mood to bike/walk, I can always catch the bus as the house is on the bus route too.

When I purchased it was circa 1970 so I did some major renovations: new kitchen, 2 new bathrooms, new mudroom, new deck.

This house also had a fireplace! Yeah, what a great way to enjoy the island in the winter.

What makes this house unique

An easy walk to town

  • 5 of 5

The location can't be beat, especially at the price. Very easy walk to town without the "intown" price. Everything was new and we had everything we needed for a very comfortable vacation. I can't wait for this summer!

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I have been coming to this house for a few years now for a "girls getaway". It's a perfect house! Has everything we need and plenty of beds making the sleeping arrangements easy. Location is perfect. Easy walk to everything. Beach right around the corner. The full kitchen is very convenient so we don't have to eat out for every meal! The washer and dryer is great for light packing and keeping up with the beach clothes and towels. The outdoor shower is awesome. House is clean and tastefully decorated. Outdoor space is great! Owners a great to work with! Can't wait to come back every year!

Wonderful two week stay!

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent a wonderful two weeks at this nicely located house with all the amenities for a relaxing vacation. The house is located a relatively short walking distance from downtown Edgartown. This comes in handy as parking in Edgartown can be a challenge. Several restaurants on the outer edge of Edgartown are even closer. ( We appreciated walking off all those incredible lobster rolls on our walks each night!) The house is comfortably furnished and has a nice deck and outdoor shower. A great value for the price considering the good location and easy access to the great beaches! Enjoy!

Sweet little house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Edgartown at this sweet cottage. Bedrooms are nicely decorated, everything was clean and pretty, and the house is in a convenient location right outside of Edgartown. Thanks for a great get away!

great house at the right price

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we anticipated and more. The location was perfect, a quiet spot away from town but within reasonable walking distance. Stop an Shop is close and the house is located on bus line #1. The home was clean and well-maintained. The owner was very friendly and communication was prompt and easy. This is a great value!

Last week on the vineyard

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had staying at your lovely home last week. The pictures don't do it justice. There was plenty of room for my extended family of eight. We had plenty of privacy and the kids had a ball playing in the backyard. It was so convenient to everything.....walking or biking. The bike trail was at the end of the driveway. I especially liked the bike ride to Morning Glory Farm for their homemade muffins. Thanks Ellen for the use of your home, we would love to come back again. Sue
