                      Martha's Vineyard Island has wonderful activities from biking to beaches to dining and shopping. Our house is close to all the activities offered in Oak Bluffs. It is an easy bike ride (miles of bike paths), bus ride (the bus stop is close) or drive to the rest of the island.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1994

                      About the owner: The Pennacook House is a wonderful place for family gatherings, play and relaxation, with island activities for all ages right near by. Here I am collecting shells at the beach with my twins.

                      Why the Owner Chose Oak Bluffs:
                      My husband and I visited Martha's Vineyard in the spring of 1994 and fell in love with the island and the town of Oak Bluffs. We found the Pennacook House for sale, bought it and spent the next year completely renovating it. We love the island in winter, too! It's peaceful and ideal for long walks or cozying up on the couch with a Latte from Espresso Love.
