About Lorraine Wilson-Drake

We are Tony and Lorraine Drake and we live in Philadelphia with our 11 year old son Anthony. Every year we make multiple six hour drives to the ferry to spend time on this island we love so much. We operate a small business where we own several rental properties in Philadelphia. This is our second time owning a home on Martha's Vineyard.

Lorraine Wilson-Drake purchased this house in 2013

Why Lorraine Wilson-Drake chose Martha's Vineyard

We purchased this property because we loved spending time here with our friends and wanted a place that was centrally located and could accommodate two small families. We added a bath and family room so that kids or teens could gather separate from adults if they desired. There is also enough space for everyone in the living and dining area. And who doesn't love three bathrooms?

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the size and location.

Enjoyed my stay

  • 5 of 5

I loved the house. It felt like home and there was a place to relax in every part of the house. Also appreciated the fact that there was privacy in all the sleeping areas with a bathroom right next to each area. The neighborhood was nice and quiet.

Perfect house for couples weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home to stay in. We instantly felt comfortable upon arrival. The home was clean, nicely decorated and well appointed. Our group was 3 couples and there was plenty of room for us all. The 3-full bathrooms plus outdoor shower made getting ready a snap.

While at the house, we spent time cooking in the kitchen, with big meals around the table. The open kitchen into the dining room and great room was perfect for our group.

We did bring over a vehicle, which I would recommend, and visited most points of the island. The home's proximity to OB, Vineyard and County Rd made getting around very easy.

Overall, very happy with the home and we look forward to renting again.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful, family oriented home. Very comfortable, nicely decorated and clean. Description of home and photos were accurate. Conveniently located near Oak Bluffs center, which is great for kids, good restaurants, and also shopping. House is also a short distance from Joseph Sylvia State Beach which was perfect for our small grandchildren.

Kitchen very well equipped and the owner, Lorraine, was very helpful in all aspects. Plenty parking for our 3 cars and more if you need to. I highly recommend this property for families with small children as there is that extra room on the first floor where the kids can watch TV and play and we can have the living room/eating area for ourselves. Also good for 2 or 3 couples or couples with teenage kids.

Our only concern, if you have small children, is that it is located on a main street, but the house is set up back. We had no problems.

We were delighted with the house and will definitely rent it again.
