THE PERFECT RETREAT on Tisbury Great Pond. Our beautifully designed and maintained gem of a cabin offers one bedroom (plus convertible couch), full kitchen and bathroom, outdoor shower & more.
The cabin nestles peacefully in a secluded spot on Deep Bottom Cove, one of the finger coves of Tisbury Great Pond, in West Tisbury. The surroundings are unspoiled, with extraordinary views, birds, sunsets, vegetation, walks and boating. There are only a couple of houses in distant view.
The water is thirty seconds from the house where you can swim, sail, canoe and kayak. Sail or kayak to South Beach.
The cabin has gas lights as well as a electric lamps, but no TV or other gadgets. The kitchen is small but fully equipped. There is a full bathroom with tub plus an outdoor shower. There are electrical outlets throughout so you can plug in anything you bring.
The cabin gives you access to the 'quiet' side of the island, but is also a great base for visiting the wonderful galleries, restaurants, and stores in the island towns.
Off-season: It is particularly nice to visit the cabin in the off-season. The cabin is on the road that is the winter entrance to the Trustees of the Reservation Long Point Wildlife Refuge. Before June 15 and after September 15 the winter entrance gate to the refuge is open, so you can walk or drive out there in just a few minutes from the cabin. This gives you easier access to South Beach. The cabin is beautiful in any weather, and the huckleberry scrub is particularly lovely in spring and fall. The snug cabin has a wood stove for heat and warms up very nicely!
