About Hathaway Family (rental contact- Deb Foster)
My great grandmother purchased this cottage in 1931 for herself and her family to enjoy summers. Her two daughters and and their families picnicked at the beaches and sailed the Vineyard Sound summers. The cottage transferred to John Hathaway, the 3rd generation, in the 1960's and has been enjoyed by his four children, the 4th generation, to this day. The house has now been handed over to the 4th generation and its use off season continues with the inclusion of the 5th generation of children. The Hathaway family has tried hard to keep the cottage at its best and upgraded the kitchen, beds, and bathrooms over the last 20 years. We love sharing the cottage with those who will find the warmth and ease of use of the cottage inviting.

Why Hathaway Family (rental contact- Deb Foster) chose Oak Bluffs
Our family cottage is within walking distance (10 minutes) of everything in Oak Bluffs (including library, Circuit Ave, harbor and Tabernacle Campgrounds) and to New York Ave where you can pick up one of the buses that travels around the island. The house is comfortable and feels like you are home. The outdoor shower is one of the best around with a private changing stall attached. Beach chairs and umbrella are provided for your convenience.
What makes this House unique
You will love rocking on the front porch and having dinner and game time at the large dining table in the dining room. Many of our guests remark the most about these two areas and have returned each summer for many years building their own family memories.

This is our second year staying here, and we absolutely love it! The location is great, (an easy walk to town, quick drive to the beach), and the house itself is the perfect size for our family of 5. We love spending time on the front porch and the outdoor shower is a lovely feature as well. Deb was very attentive in making sure that we had a comfortable stay, and was always available should we need to contact her. Highly recommend this property to anyone planning a vineyard vacation. :)
Thank you for your wonderful review. We enjoyed having you stay in our cottage and look forward to your return visit next year!
Great location, larger than expected
The cottage is very cute and larger than anticipated. We visited in July during a heat wave, so all the fans were helpful but we would have appreciated a dehumidifier. The queen beds were great, twin beds a bit rough. The location is great—close to downtown Oak Bluffs (you can easily walk there) without all the hustle and bustle.
We loved our stay! We have been visiting MV for many years now. This was by far the cleanest place we have stayed! Great location too!! I highly recommend!
The cottage was immaculate and well located we biked or walked into oak bluffs or had a seven minute drive to. Vineyard haven. They provided beach chairs and plenty of kitchen items. It did feel a little cluttered. I would have liked more pantry or counter space but otherwise loved it.
Cottage is within a 5-10 minute walking distance of Oak Bluffs Harbor and downtown and about a 10 minute walk to Oak Bluffs Town beach near the entrance to the harbor.
