About Adam

I grew up in Chestnut Hill, MA - a suburb located about 15 minutes West of Boston. After graduating from Boston University, I started my career in marketing in New York City. It was in NYC where I met my future wife, Nicole. Though we both loved NYC, we knew we were ready for a change. When Nicole got accepted into the Kellogg Business School at Northwestern, it was apparent that Chicago would be our next destination. Shortly after our arrival in Chicago, Nicole and I got married. And in October of 2012 we had our first child Julian, or 'Jude' - inspired by my adoration of the Beatles. We love Chicago (although we miss NYC) and we're fortunate to have family in the Chicago area with whom we're very close.

Adam purchased this house in 2000

Why Adam chose Vineyard Haven

Each year for the past 15 years, we anxiously await the arrival of the warm New England months to embark upon our summer get-away. Despite growing up in the western suburbs of Boston, I hadn't actually visited Martha's Vineyard until well into adulthood. Many of my summers were spent at Summer camp in the Berkshires. During high school and college, perhaps due to my family's NY roots, we tended to vacation in the Hamptons over the summers. So, it wasn't until my mother bought the property in 2000 that I fell in love with the Island and subsequently this home. The home with it's spacious floor plan and warm, island aesthetic has provided family, friends, and guests with lots of fond summer memories. And with the recent arrival of our first child, Julian, we look forward to creating more memories for our growing family.

Truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful 4th of July vacation on Martha's Vineyard. The house is beautiful and just as pictured. The beds are all very comfortable and the furnishings are quaint and artistic. Would recommend renting bikes as the house is well located for short rides to Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and to the beaches. The front porch and backyard deck are perfect places to sit and read or enjoy a barbecue meal. We will definitely return to Martha's Vineyard and we would certainly consider staying at this very accommodating home.

Perfect house for a Vineyard vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the house. I was perfect for our family of six - grandparents, parents and two "tweens". The first floor Master suite with ensuite bath was perfect, the upstairs bedrooms were cozy yet spacious. Even though the week was rainy, we amused ourselves with cards and board games around a homey dining/kitchen table. There is a gas fireplace in the living room to take off the chill and a sun room that is comfortable for reading. Our last days of sunshine were a real treat and we drove to the Island's beaches...Menemsha is a favorite. The house is a short 15 minute walk to Vineyard Haven shopping, cafes, the Black Dog, Bunch of Grapes bookstore, and, of course, Murdick's Fudge and ice cream. While we didn't get to enjoy the back yard and deck due to weather, it looked like it would be the perfect "hang out" spot. The owners and maintenance man were responsive and easy to work with. This house is a little gem, and we really enjoyed our stay on the Island, using it as our "home base".

Wonderful family holiday on MV

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful and relaxing holiday at this wonderful spot nestled in Vineyard Haven. We walked to town and to the beach. We watched boats in the harbor, ate ice cream and found fabulous fresh fish at the market to bbq in the yard and totally loved the outdoor shower! We arrived to a clean and well equipped abode. It was private and comfy and convenient! Loved our stay and will come back again!

Great location, home away from home, island life

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriends and I with two friends rented the house for a weekend in October. The house was adorable and in walking distance from the main street of the town! When we arrived it was clean and had great kitchenware options for cooking many different meals including a pot large enough to cook lobster dinners right at home! The beds were very comfortable and to top it off the outdoor shower had great privacy, was very clean, warm, and tranquil. I would definetly come back to this house or recommend it to a friend in the future.
