|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Completely renovated waterfront house with a New (2010) deep water dock, within
walking distance (200 yards) of a private association beach.
This peaceful home sits on a wide inlet and overlooks Washburn Island-
a beautiful 330 acre undeveloped island that is part of the Waqouit
Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
The house has a wrap-around deck with stunning views; a large yard; a
small, private sandy beach; and a Brand New (2010) dock with 3 feet of water at
low tide which offers bridge-free access to Vineyard Sound. There is fresh water at the end of the dock.
This house is completely renovated: In last 2008 we redid the interior and roof. From
kitchen appliances to furniture- pretty much everything is new.
The Dock was replaced in 2010 and we added water at the end.
In early 2012, we replaced all windows, the front porch and trim on the house.
House Amenities: The house has 3 bedrooms and a loft and can sleep 10 people
comfortably. It has a very large 2nd floor master bedroom overlooking
the water with king size bed and private porch. Downstairs are 2
bedrooms-one with a queen bed and the other with a twin over double
bunk bed. There is a queen pull-out couch in the living room and
room for cots in the loft.
Other features/amenities include: Large Screen LCD TV, cable, high speed Internet access, WIFI network, dishwasher, washer/dryer, outdoor shower, patio, gas grill, beach with easy entry for kayaks, and new deep water dock with water.
There is an association beach about 200 yards down the street and a small, private beach at the house.
We were once again happy with our stay this year! The views are perfect and the location is terrific. It was also nice to see a few updates this year (new furniture, TV, and refrigerator). Can't wait until next year!
My husband and I wanted a place to retreat where we could relax--add relax we did.
The house was clean, the rooms spacious and bright, well-appointed and the views were beautiful. The only thing it lacked was sunshine (we had no rain) but we made up for that. We enjoyed quiet walks in the evening and sat on the decks when we could. The ducks were a joy to watch.
We explored the Falmouth area, which was abundant with shopping. The buildings were neat and the beaches nothing short of gorgeous. We are looking forward to our next visit.
At the time of our stay, our 3 children were ages 5 and under and this property suited our needs perfectly. We looked a long time for a waterfront house on the Cape and this is the best deal we found. The nearby islands provided hours of fun for the kids- collecting HUNDREDS of hermit crabs and just exploring and swimming. Surrounding the dock at the house, there are a bunch of big crabs and trying to catch these in the provided nets was a fun activity, too. We finally succeeded a few times, much to the delight of the kids (and adults). The house was very well maintained,updated and comfortable and the owner was very personable and easy to work with. All of the gear at the house was fantastic- kayaks, tubes, beach toys, etc. We had several family members visit during our stay and everyone had a wonderful experience.
The only drawback for me was that the shallow water area at the house was quite mucky, but pond shoes alleviated that problem for the older kids. Babies/toddlers really can't wade in this water, though. Additionally, there was some work being done on the dock by a crew while we were there, which we didn't expect. However, that meant the dock was brand new, which was a definite bonus. Overall, our vacation was fantastic. As 2010 came to a close and we reflected back, everyone in our family chose this vacation for their favorite part of the year, which is why I felt compelled to write a review. We are looking to vacation in NH this summer, and I find the reviews to be very helpful, so I wanted to do my part to let people know that this is a fabulous vacation spot.
The house overlooks the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research
Reserve which offers kayaking in its 1000+ acre waters, fishing,
clamming, water skiing, sailing, multiple beaches (many accessible only

There is a public boat launch and marina within a mile of the house.
Martha's Vineyard is a 15 minute boat ride and offers days of exciting

Mashpee Commons and Falmouth Center are both within 5 miles of the
house and offer great shopping and dining.
In addition, Falmouth has miles of town beaches, bike trails, ferry
