About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 7, 40' Swimming Pool, Walk to Historic Downtown

Location: State Road, West Tisbury, across from Whiting Farm. Let the stress roll off your shoulders. You have now arrived at your Martha's Vineyard summer home-away-from home. Vintage 1830's Farmhouse is the quintessential Martha's Vineyard experience. Situated in a peaceful, pastoral setting, across the road from a sheep meadow in the historic district of beautiful West Tisbury, a true New England town. Almost three acres of land for you to explore with lawns and gardens. Located in its own area is a 10' x 40' lap pool (4.5' deep) with gardens, seating, lounging, umbrellas, pool towels, outdoor shower and a pool house for changing clothes. In and out of the sun, the owner has created many indoor and outdoor living areas for cooking, dining and relaxing. Sip your morning coffee or afternoon wine on the invitingly off-beat entry porch.Play bocce ball, horseshoes, croquet or in the yard dine outside.Have a drink under an arbor of wisteria and grape on a warm afternoon.

Mary, the owner, lives out back in the barn, there for you if you need her, or to leave you to your privacy if you don’t. She's a year-rounder - unobtrusive and busy away from the property a lot (Mary works full time.)She maintains the pool and the property. The property is a true sense of the Vineyard. The Mill Pond tells you, you are almost there and one more right turn will bring you to 1000 State Rd.

Within walking distance is Alley's general store, 7A for a great breakfast/ lunch, a beautiful new library, the Field Gallery and the Farmer's Market.

There is the beautiful Lambert's Cove Beach available with a permit .

Guestbook comments from the owner

When I returned to NYC I remembered that I did not tell you in person how much I loved my stay in Martha's Vineyard. I felt more like a personal guest rather than a tenant. From the beautiful quilts and table cloths to the lovely dishes and glasses, I felt at home in the house I wish I had. The gardens and arbor are so beautiful. How kind of you to have everything in bloom for me. The pool was heaven and just the right temperature. What makes it all so special is you. Thank you so much for making a wonderful home available.

Vintage 1930's Farmhouse is located within a short walking distance, just three minutes, to the center of the Town of West Tisbury, a true New England village. West Tisbury covers 34 square miles and has a year-round population of approximately 2,600. As a popular vacation destination the number grows to several times that in the summer. The first recorded settlement was in 1669 and it was incorporated as a town in 1892. The proud home of the famous annual Agricultural Fair, less than one mile from the house, West Tisbury is home to many acres of State Forest, scenic beaches, rich farm land and has many historical structures still in use today. The town continues to retain much of the rural atmosphere and neighborly sense of community that makes it a beloved place for islanders and visitors alike.

Beautiful old farmhouse & property

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property. The farmhouse is warm and inviting. We slept in the down stairs Master bedroom that has a sliding door out to a private patio. At night we closed only the screen door allowing a beautiful breeze into the room. If needed we could have turned on the room's a/c unit, but that was not necessary during our stay. The lap pool area is beautiful and quiet. The grounds and gardens around this property are just so beautiful and coupled with the character of the home made for a wonderful vacation.

Tip: the house is also a very short walk to the center of town, where we had a couple great lunches from 7a Foods, and enjoyed the farmers market on Saturday.

Perfect MV vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This Vintage Farmhouse couldn't be more centrally located. It's a 5 minute walk to 7a(delicious breakfast and lunch), Alleys(groceries and general store), West Tisbury Library, the farmers market and a 5 minute drive from our favorite restaurant State Rd. Our second year renting, our kids love having acres to run around and even ride their bikes. The house is well maintained and the owner Mary couldn't be nicer. The pool alone is worth the price of admission.

Superb relaxing farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with the family in Aug '13 and had a fabulous time; the pool and grounds were fantastic, a great place to relax and enjoy island life. The owner Mary was available whenever we needed her and couldn't have been more helpful. The kitchen is really well equipped so we could enjoy some great lobster dinners indoors and out (fabulous arbour to eat under outdoors). The house is well located to explore the island, we loved Menemsha beach and port. Being a West Tisbury resident can also buy you a pass to the beautiful Lambert's Cove beach.

We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay here and are really hoping we get to return one day soon.

Good from far but far from good

  • 2 of 5

3 bedrooms - not 4. Outside is beautiful as is yard/flowers. Not kid/dog friendly - very close to main road, can't walk/bike easily due to traffic and bad intersection, steep steps going upstairs, dogs not allowed in only fenced area on property. Furniture very dated and smells. Ant infestation in and around home. Not private with owner staying in renovated garage right beside home. Pool is nice for kids. Do not arrive even 15 minutes early to check in ...

Owner's Response: This was a family of mixed messages after having numerous conversations before their arrival. They arrived problem, by luck the house was ready. They came to me saying "we love your house, we'll take care of it like our own". Good tenants....."bad tenants"(a first for us) There was no misrepresentation of the house or property as described or shown in pictures just a total lack of respect for it on their part.between a broken window, magic marker on furniture,floors and fabric..dirty diapers left in kitchen cabinets, ants due to feeding dog on back porch and threatening emails for their security deposit ( which was returned).

Charming, clean, comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation here with our two young-adult children. Mary was a very gracious host whose home is clean, organized, and easy to live in. There are plenty of places to relax in the house so we didn't feel crowded in one small room. The kitchen had everything we needed, the pool was clean and secluded by a natural hedge, and the location was great for island bus-travel. It's an easy walk to the bus stop in West Tis, and we loved the farmers' market there too.
