Enjoy the privacy and serenity of this 1.4 acre meadow overlook in the heart of the Vineyard's rural soul: Middle Road. At the juncture of Music Street, this two-building compound is near everything yet quiet with no neighbor in sight. Walk to the twice-weekly Farmer's Market at Grange Hall. Get involved at Ag Hall in agricultural, horticultural or youth activities. Give your kids a riding lesson at neighboring horse farms. Or walk along Music Street of an evening to Alley's General Store for ice cream. Across the street are 750 acres of wildlife refuge preserved by The Nature Conservancy with extensive walking paths.
Towels and linens are included. Cleaning is at no charge.
When Islanders take their children on a scenic tour, they go up Middle Road. It is the most beautiful part of the Island, portrayed with a timeless canvas of meadows, stone walls, sheep, cattle and weathered barns. At one point you come to Keith Farm with its rolling meadows and wandering cattle and backed by the sweeping Atlantic. It is the Island's most stunning view.
We had a fabulous week on the Vineyard and enjoyed your home VERY much. Comfortable and plenty of space to spread out. Your housekeeper should have no issues as we left it as we found it.
You are up-Island in the middle of horse farms and rural splendor yet only 10 minutes from down-island ferry, restaurants and shopping. Ten minutes drive also gives you a choice of the pristine beaches of Lambert's Cove on the north side of the island or Long Point on the south.
