About this listing
With access to beautiful Lambert's Cove Beach, and up against 4000 acres of state forest., this very private house immerses you in the best that nature can offer. The house has cathedral ceilings and a two story glass wall. Great for families or couples. 5+ Days only. (Five Star rating on other sites)
This centrally located glassed-in house in the woods is a 15 minute drive or less to nearly anywhere on Martha's Vineyard. It is located in the middle of our 2 acres of woods on a paved road. Permits to two beautiful beaches are available: Lambert's Cove Beach on the north side of the island and Long Beach on the south side.
The house is designed so that the summer sun is kept out despite having a two story wall of glass in the main sitting area of the house. The effect is that your eyes naturally drift off into the woods, where you come to recognize various birds and where they live. It is very peaceful. The screened-in porch is a favorite for reading and bird watching. Two patios, a table on the porch, a kitchen bar, and a regular sit-down table in the house provide many dining options. There is a fully equipped, chef's kitchen, 1.5 bathrooms, and an additional private semi-outdoor shower.
The house is less than five minute's walk to the 4000 acre State Forest with bike paths connecting to all other bike paths on the island. Nearby places to bike (mostly on paths) include the State Forest, the YMCA, Vineyard Youth Tennis, West Tisbury school playground and town tennis courts, Alley's and the Field Gallery. A bit further along are Long Beach, Lambert's Cove Beach and the town of Vineyard Haven. A 2 minute walk takes the kids to a terrific neighborhood baseball diamond, and a 10 minute bike ride gets you to a frisbi golf course in the State Forest.
We may allow a dog. The area is perfect for it, with the State Forest next door. Please inquire.
We provide 100% cotton linens.
We spend a lot of time aboard our sailboat 'Aurora' in Vineyard Haven Harbor during the summer. We will normally be available by cell phone should the renter require anything.
House, herb garden, and woods. Also pick up a beach pass for Lambert's Cove beach and enjoy one of the best limited access beaches on the island.
Interaction with guests
This is your private space. We may see each other once or twice in a given week, while I tend to a garden in the back of the property. I am usually on my boat in the Vineyard Haven harbor in the summer. I will always have my cell phone with me. Please don't hesitate to call if you have a question or if there is something you need.
Other things to note
West Tisbury has a beautiful "residence only" private beach that is available to renters called Lambert's Cove Beach. Renters may acquire their own beach pass at a shack at the West Tisbury School. (Left, down Old County Road about 1 mile.)
Please do not smoke in the house.
We have a Yamaha piano. Piano players may use it. It should stay covered, however, when not in use to protect its sensitive finish from getting marked. Also, do not ever wipe the piano with anything damp. It will leave marks that are expensive to remove.
My husband has just finished building new wooden counters and cabinetry this winter. We ask that you use cutting boards and not the hardwood counters for cutting and that you refrain from putting hot items directly on the counters.
Pets are only allowed with specific permission from me. If you are given such permission, no sign of your animal should be left after you leave.
We hope you enjoy our home and have a terrific visit to Martha's Vineyard.
