Gooseberry and Cuttyhunk Islands are colonial treasures that showcase the first English settlements. Lighthouse tours or grabbing some sun on the beaches is a favorite tourist pastime.

There are beaches for sunbathing or bird watching the famed Massachusetts American oystercatchers and others. Indigenous wildflowers, sweet peas, and bayberry dart the landscape. Bring or rent fishing gear to try your hand at catching the next world-record striped bass off Sow and Pigs Reef. Hike to Lookout Hill with views of the entire island.
  • Martha’s Vineyard: The name of this special place says it all. It is located an hour away after a scenic ride along the coast of Massachusetts. The final leg includes a ferry ride that offers the chance for a bit of whale watching. Once there, take a deep sea charter out for exceptional bluefish or striped bass fishing. Beaches such as Chappaquiddick line a vast swath of the island with a bevy of water sports to engage in. Sailboats can be chartered for a waterside tour. Downtown Edgartown offers shopping and dining opportunities after a tour of the harbor and five lighthouses in the area.

The apartment has been impeccably renovated with every luxury one could want. There is plenty of room for 5 and lots of open space. The views are extraordinary--you could easily spend the day sitting on the deck watching the boats go up and down the river and people puttering on the dock. I was concerned about the noise level given that it is a working dock, but it wasn't an issue. If you are familiar with the area, then you know that there it's lots to do and see within a short drive. If you are not familiar with the area, you should do some exploring because it is a beautiful and unique coastal area. There are working farms and wineries and lovely stretches of coast to watch the sunset/sunrise. We will definitely be back!

So I write this review with mixed feelings knowing that others will visit, thus making it too popular! The kitchen was well-equipped and the BBQ was well used. Almy's Roost is ideally located, and along with the breathtaking vista and cooling breezes, made it the perfect spot. Slept soundly at night and began and ended each day on the quaint, rustic front porch. Deborah and Michael were great hosts and supplied plenty of information regarding where to go and what to see. I hope to return for an even longer stay.

The property is outfitted with absolutely anything you and your family might need. Everything is of the highest quality and beautifully appointed. The photos don't do justice to the beautiful views and wonderful setting. Sharon is a considerate and thoughtful host, when we asked about renting bikes for our trip, 4 bikes ended up waiting for us. She gave us great information on local eateries and entertainment which were all right on point. This lovely rural setting was a hop skip and a jump away from Newport and Bristol and there was PLENTY to do. But what was great about this property was that it made you want to stay and enjoy all the amenities. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank You Sharon for a wonderful vacation.
