There are also three other rooms with fold out queen couches if your group exceeds eight adults. The primary architectural feature is the 1,000 sf Great Room which was hand crafted of fir, cherry, ash and cypress. The west wall is dominated by a massive stone fireplace and the east wall by a 20 foot long cherry bar which overlooks the chef's kitchen. The north and south walls are adorned by glass affording open views across fields and into the woods. No other houses can be seen from The Stoney Hill Road House.
In addition to super comfortable furniture and beds, the house has a high end whole home audio/video setup with lightning fast cable internet, Direct TV, Apple TVs with NETFLIX, HBO & SHOWTIME.

Consistently the best
The house is a delight, with everything you need and then some. My extended family of 6 adults and 2 children were all well situated, with private space, common space and outdoor space for each. This is truly a luxury home, with all of the bells and whistles you don't even know to expect, all there for you to enjoy.
Better than the house is the owner, who is more responsive than any owner I can imagine. For example, I asked where on the island I could buy a propane tank when the bbq grill needed a refill; his response was to bring a full tank within hours. My guests were shocked. But as this was my fifth time back for our annual summer vacation, I was just thankful that the high standard he'd set was once again being met.
If I'm renting on Martha's Vineyard, I'm renting this house. It's that amazing for us.
Beautiful, secluded vacation home
We stayed here for the first time this July to August 2017 and we were totally impressed. We had selected the home because it had all the features we were looking for and it had a ton of impressive reviews. The reviews were well-founded.
The owner, Darren, met us when we first arrived and he showed us around and answered any questions we had but then let us be after that. But, he could be quickly reached if there was anything we needed or if we had any questions. The house itself was stunning, even nicer than the photos captured. It was very roomy yet felt very warm and comfortable. Finishes were high-end and all the appliances were modern and in good working order. There was a problem with a part on the outdoor grill after the previous guests checked out and Darren immediately had an entirely new grill put in!
The location is very secluded, with a large yet very private yard. It is on a small, private road and then up a long driveway so you cannot see any other houses from the property. Yet, it is only a short 10-minute drive to downtown Vineyard Haven and is also centrally located and easy to get around the entire island from there. It is a great location to be based on MV.
We would not hesitate to stay again or to recommend the house to others.
Incredible House & Grounds
You have to see this property to believe it. We have been vacationing in MV for many years at different properties and this one tops them all. The house itself it extremely spacious allowing all guest to spread out and never feel crowded. It is up to date with the latest technology and so much to do we spent many days on the property just enjoying ourselves. The exterior landscaping, flowers and plantings are impeccable and the privacy of the property makes you feel like there is no one around for miles. The owner is more attentive than any owner we have ever dealt with checking in via text a few times during the week just to make sure all was ok and always asking if we needed anything and insuring that our stay was up to his own high expectations. I highly recommend this house for larger groups, families with children and anyone looking for a vacation house you won't forget. We've stayed here 3 years in a row and already have our plans booked for 2018. Your stay in MV will be one to remember if you stay in this house!!!!
My family has stayed at the Stoney Hill Road house for four years in a row. It is an exceptional property. Darren is an exceptional owner who is always available to answer any questions we have. Years ago, we stayed elsewhere on the island but nothing compares to this house. Sitting outside on the deck the first morning, I listened to the birds chirp, roosters crowing, and watched a horse rider gracefully walk the trail around the house. This property is secluded which makes for a wonderfully relaxing stay. But it is also accessible to everything within a few minutes - Vineyard Haven, the beaches, Oak Bluffs.
My family started vacationing on the vineyard over 25 years ago when there was just one granchild in the picture and we fit into a smaller house. As those grandchildren kept being born and have grown into adults, we needed the larger space of this home so all could have their privacy. This home has become especially important to us as my father ages and needs the accessibility that this home provides, including an elevator so he can get to all parts of the house. This year we did all the usual things - Gay Head, Black Dog, Bunch of Grapes bookstore, Lola's for Buck-a-Shuck - and lots of homemade dinners using that fabulous kitchen. All of the grandkids and their significant others would head downstairs for a movie night or shuffleboard action. Because of the perfect design of this house, not a peep was heard by the older generation upstairs while the kids had great time together.
The memories formed at this home will last forever. And we have already booked and can't wait to go back for 2018!
The house was fantastic and I highly recommend it to anyone vacationing in Martha's Vineyard.
We really enjoyed our time here. Darren was an excellent host; he was very prompt, responsive and helpful. He gave us tips and suggestions of things to do (we actually did all of them- they were great suggestions). The house is terrific. We had 3 families staying there and we had plenty of room, including enough room outside to have a great game of kick ball. In particular, the kitchen and pantry are really big so large group dinners are very easy. The house is centrally located so it's easy to get everywhere on the island. I highly recommend staying here. We had a great time and would love to stay there again.
An extraordinary property for a family celebration!
We just returned from a wonderful week at the Stoney Hill Road House. I can't imagine a more perfect place for celebrating with our family. We were a group of 14 and all had tons of room. The house and grounds are spectacular -- lots of space for the kids to run around and play and the most relaxing site for those of us who wanted to enjoy family dinners, read, watch movies and gather together in the gorgeous great room. I was in awe of the home's beauty as well as its functionality. Darren was extremely responsive to our questions. The whole experience was magical!
