About the property

Guest cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Lovely, newly renovated and tastefully decorated summer guest cottage on hill top near town. Open kitchen and living areas, bedroom with double bed, sweet twin bedroom off main bedroom, convertible queen sofa in living room, private patio and fenced in yard for pups.

Cottage is in close to everything - town, shops & restaurants, playground, sports fields, beaches. A three minute walk down the hill to the Lagoon and boat rentals where you can rent kayaks and learn to windsurf. Only 1 mile to Owen Little Park Beach, and 1 1/2 miles to Eastville Beach. A true pleasure.

For children, walk to the park and play ball, swing or fly a kite. For the adults, walk to the lagoon and kayak, or walk downtown to great shops and restaurants, the beach or catch a movie.

There is an additional vacation rental on the property. A beautiful 4 bedroom historic house. The two houses are off the same driveway, but can be rented separately or together.

Why Sharon Strimling chose Vineyard Haven

This property is perfect for families and friends to rest, relax, and entertain in a stress free comfortable setting.

What makes this cottage unique

My favorite time to walk down to the lagoon (a 3 minute walk down a hill) is in the late afternoon when all the birds are flying low above the beach grasses, and lighting upon the pilings. The sun at that time of day is spectacular over the water. Walking out Hines Point (around the lagoon) is a total pleasure, and renting kayaks from there is as fun and peaceful as life gets. Of course, the short walk to town, the restaurants and shops is perfect any time of day, and is great for kids, as you can cut right through the playground and park on the way if you don't walk by the lagoon.

The house and cottage are some of the rare Vineyard homes that are elevated on hill, and the breezes are wonderful! The cottage is decorated in a light and summery perfectly relaxing way!

Map

This beautiful hilltop cottage is on a lovely residential street a short walk to town (Main Street in Vineyard Haven). You can walk either through a park and playground or along the lagoon to go into town, to restaurants or shops, or to the ferry.

To get to beaches from this cottage you can walk down the hill to the lagoon, where you can rent kayaks and paddle out. Or you can walk into town which is about 10 minutes through the park, and walk another 5 minutes to Owen Little Park which has a small beach, or about 5-10 more minutes to the public beach next to the yacht club.

There is also a more secluded beach a short drive away where Lake Tashmoo meets the ocean. It one of my favorites, down a beautiful dirt road with water on both sides. The lake side of the beach is dreamy peaceful and perfect for young children, and the ocean side is a perfect, small classic beach.

Martha's Vineyard is a beautiful island off of Cape Cod, in Massachusetts. Vineyard Haven is the primary port, with historic homes, lovely beaches, fabulous shopping and delicious restaurants. Our house is just outside the center of Vineyard Haven and the ferry.

You can see the house location on google maps at 141A Skiff Ave.

Cottage Living Is Great!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location - close to the hustle and bustle but not in the middle of it. Don't worry about size - it was perfect! I stayed with 3 other women. The place was fully supplied from sheets to cooking utensils and beach chairs and umbrellas. Yes I loved it!

Sharon is very attentive to the needs of her guests. The property is charming and has all of the features a couple or young family would want. Very clean home, which is very important. Would definitely return!

Great visit, great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit to the cottage. We had our two children with us and the fold out couch for them was great and the queen size bed for us was was great as well. Definitely tiny but if you are not planning on hanging out in cottage and venturing around the island instead this place is perfect. Sharon and Jenn respond quickly to any requests and were helpful with any issues we had. Location was great too!

Very clean and well stocked with the basic essentials.

  • 4 of 5

Adorable cottage. Owner very accommodating and easy to work with. One recommendation for improvement, would be a new mattress and preferable a queen size. The mattress is saggy and we often found ourselves being forced into the middle because it has loss its support.

Cozy, quiet and very comfortable- adorable setup!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely! Sharon makes sure her properties are well maintained - everything you need is provided. Sharon is a great hostess and makes sure you are welcomed! We had such a great time last year that we decided to try this property in Vineyard Haven. It was quiet and very comfortable. We were close to restaurants, shopping and beaches. We look forward to next year!

Perfect Vineyard Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Hilltop Cottage. The Cottage itself is smartly designed and provided enough room to accommodate our party of 4 adults, a baby, and 25lb dog. Conveniently located to Main Street Vineyard Haven, the cottage was a 10-min walk to restaurants, shops, and the beach. More property highlights include a fenced-in yard, patio space and grill, outdoor shower, and a fire pit. In addition to the cottage itself, the owner, Sharon, is wonderful to rent from. She is responsive, organized, and absolutely lovely. We highly recommend the Hilltop Cottage for your next trip to the Vineyard, and hope to return ourselves next summer!
