Huge picnic table with umbrella. Lovely hammock.
Car not necessary because town and beach are within easy walking distance. The rest of the island is easily accessed via bike, bus or taxi. If you choose to bring a car, there are 2 off street spaces available and you will need to make ferry reservations with the Martha's Vineyard Steamship Authority to book passage from Wood's Hole, MA to either Oak Bluffs or Vineyard Haven on the island of Martha's Vineyard....moreless

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.
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.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Ideal location.
This house is just a special place - it has a great feel:
Gorgeous period details.
Lots of light.
