Oak Bluffs cottage description

Mermaid Boathouse' is a designer's recently renovated waterfront boathouse that has been transformed into a terrific year round home. It's located in the popular East Chop area of the island and is situated in a peaceful, private, and natural setting a half-mile from colorful and historical Oak Bluffs, ocean beaches and quaint Vineyard Haven shops. A quaint and wonderful cottage experience with all the amenities of a four star hotel. Celebrate colorful MV sunsets from the deck which rival those of Menemsha. The house has a fresh, comfortable feel located in the peaceful and private area of exclusive East Chop. Relax in the Adirondack chairs or on the chaise lounges on the large deck or lie on the hammock under the trees on a private acre of waterfront grounds overlooking Crystal Lake with swans, pussy willows, families of duck , and other water birds. Listen to the ferries in the harbor. The lake is a few steps from the house. This is the consummate Vineyard setting. The home has been featured in 08 Coastal Living, and 07 Better Homes and Gardens and 2012 Country Home, and in 2013 MV Real Estate Guide.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: The owners are a couple from Hollywood who design main titles for Television shows like American Idol, TMZ, America's Got Talent, Ellen and more. They have been vacationing in MV for over twenty years until they bought Mermaid Boathouse.

                      Why the Owner Chose Oak Bluffs:
                      We fell in love with the privacy of this waterfront lot and the warmth and romance of this darling cottage. It is perfectly located within walking distance of historic Oak Bluffs, and a mile from local beaches. The cottage has been called 'lucky' by many who have visited. Some report new business calls, new jobs, marriage proposals, and we know the feeling. We enjoy great luck each time we visit. Try yours?

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      If you're creative, you'll find inspiration here so pack up your journals, cameras, computers and canvas, and grab a piece of the Vineyard light to challenge your mind and tickle your senses. From the beaches within walking distance, to the marina nearby, and the lighthouse just down the road - you are vacationing in the quaint East Chop village of Oak Bluffs with its quaint historic Gingerbread Victorians lining the town. The restaurants and shopping in both Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven are within a mile, as is the Flying Horses. Sailing, boating, fishing all available nearby. Farm Neck Golf is a ten minute drive. Farmers Market, Chilmark Fairs, summer concerts in the park, Illumination Night are just some of the unique features and festivities you will enjoy.
