This is an original Pratt house built in 1866 by the famed architect Pratt for whom the Pratt Institute in New York was named. It is located in the historic district across from a large park in which baseball, golf practice, kite flying, bike riding, picnics and even, on at least one occasion, horseback riding was practiced. The house has a water view which includes and is only steps from the famous Inkwell Beach. On a clear day, as most are in this location, you can see from the large porch, the beaches and down the coast all the way to Edgartown. It is also just a short 3 block walk to town and its many shops, family concerts, restaurants, festivals, art galleries, antique shops, the carousel, the arcade, as well as to the Oak Bluffs ferry. It is a shorter walk to the basketball and tennis courts.
The Pratt House is well maintained and displays the original character of the house with modern amenities. The location can't be beat because of the close proximity to the inkwell and Circuit avenue. Two things stand out that verify this is the right house to rent: 1) We did less driving than usual and 2) the kids never wanted to watch TV because of the great family discussion in the dining room and kitchen! The customer service was also outstanding. I highly recommend this house.
Great house with its original character and history. The upgrades in the kitchen along with each room ceiling fan, great furniture, cleanliness and terrific private outdoor shower made this house very comfortable. I think everyone in our group looked forward to that shower everyday. The kids fought for position in line even thought there were two other bathrooms! We enjoyed the back yard cooking on the grill and eating outside. We spent every night on the large front porch where there was a beautiful ocean breeze. We couldn't of asked for a better location since we had six to eight 12-17 year olds with us who walked to town every night and played football, Frisbee and corn hole across the street in the large park/field. The adults enjoyed the convenience of being able to walk to everything. The location allowed you to be close enough to walk but yet allowed just enough distance to bring quiet and peacefulness when returning to the house.
Greg the owner was pleasant to work with and made sure our stay was carefree and comfortable. I would highly recommend this house for your next vacation! We hope to visit again.
I stayed at Greg's house with several family members (adults and children) this past summer for two weeks. It is a nicely maintained older Victorian cottage. It is as bright and airy as the pictures. Inside there are comfortable living spaces and ample sized bedrooms. Cable and wifi were included.The kitchen is very functional, with newer appliances. There is an outdoor shower which we used after the beach, but also as backup to the two indoor bathrooms.
We barbecued in the back yard a few times and it was convenient to have this option. There is an inviting wraparound porch with a wonderful view of the water, ideal for relaxing on a warm day.
We found the location great for our needs. The Inkwell beach is right across the street. The house is walking distance (about 5 minutes) from Oak Bluffs ferry, in-town Oak Bluffs (10 minutes) , and tennis and basketball courts (5 minutes) , all of which we took advantage of. There is also a large park right across from the house.
Greg was pleasant to deal with, and left us a little welcoming gift. We would definitely rent here again.
We rented this beautiful house for our favorite August week in the vineyard. We have stayed several places in Oak Bluffs, and wanted a place that was "beachy"--clean with character, required minimal driving for most things and was close to the water. This house met all the criteria. Greg, the owner was great and very responsive during the entire process. The house was exactly what I envisioned for a relaxing beach vacation! It is a beautiful older house, but has upgrades in the bathrooms and kitchen. The kitchen was well stocked with not only dishware, but spices, cooking tools and paper products. The decor is delightful and tasteful. We had 3 couples and 3 children aged 4-14. The house is set up in a way that was comfortable for everyone. The bedrooms were large and airy, one with a lovely balcony from I drank my coffee and watched the Polar Bear Club in the mornings! We walked to town daily and the beach was across the street. When events occurred in the evenings- Illumination Night, fireworks on the beach- we only had to walk out the door and we were there. I could go on about the house.... we loved it. And Greg was a delight to work with. We spoke several times prior to arriving. On our way up, on a Sunday, Greg called to alert me to a problem with the water heater. The next day while we were at the beach, he had someone come and replace the entire thing. He made sure we were not inconvenienced in any way.
We will definitely stay here on our returns. It was a true pleasure.
We loved staying at this beautiful home. It was right across from an open park where our kids could walk over and play ball, fly kits and run around. Another amazing feature that we enjoyed was the large front porch where we enjoyed watching the ocean, relaxing, reading and watching the children playing in the park right out front. We liked that we could easily walk to the Inkwell beach, come back and enjoy the awesome outdoor shower. We could also walk to Oak Bluffs center in minutes and ride our bikes to almost anywhere on the island. We have been blessed with the opportunity to stay on Martha’s Vineyard many times. The location of this house was by far the best one that we have ever stayed.
