About Lorraine Wilson-Drake

We are Tony and Lorraine Drake and we live in Philadelphia with our 13 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.

Fun in OB!⛱

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed your spacious home in Oak Bluffs. We were a party of 7 adults and 4 teenagers. The teenagers enjoyed the in-law apartment. Your kitchen was well equipped with plenty of room for preparing and eating large family dinners. The large outdoor table and grill were perfect. Barnes Road is centrally located and easy to get into town and the beaches. OB is very Uber friendly which worked well for our group.

Lorraine was very responsive to any needs that we had. I would definitely return.

Spacious and bright vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house for the past 3 years, and we have enjoy it more each time. The house is clean, well organized and equipped with all the necessary amenities to make for an enjoyable vacation.The large, open living room has high ceilings and lots of natural light! We love sitting on the deck, in the rocking chairs in the morning with a cup of coffee and a copy of the MV Times. This is a wonderful home with lots of room for extended family members. The property is very close to Oaks Bluff and Vineyard Haven Ferries. You can even walk to town if you want. You will love this house!

103 Barnes Road, Oak Bluffs, MA

  • 5 of 5

There are 13 members of my family, which includes sons, wives, and grandchildren. This home was very commodious, and accommodated the whole gang very nicely. House was in good condition - we particularly enjoyed the large picnic table and area at rear of house. We liked proximity to Oak Bluffs, too. We all really enjoyed our here, and the rental house was a perfect place for our large family.

Great House for Families!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location, close to town. Only a short car ride away. The house is large enough for multiple families. We had ages ranging from 8-68 in our party and everyone was comfortable. Plenty of room to spread out and have your own space. The house is well appointed with what you need, found everything that we needed and we did a fair amount of cooking.

Have rented a lot of properties and can honestly say that this is a great value for the Vineyard. You won't be disappointed.

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.
