Oak Bluffs house description

Enjoy a summer vacation or fall getaway in picturesque Oak Bluffs, Martha’s Vineyard at Biggers Cottage--the historically restored and completely updated Victorian--known as one of the 'Grand Dames' of Ocean Park! Your friends and family will find porch living is easy as is a walk to town or beach. Three master bedrooms make it an ideal share for three families with four additional bedrooms for the kids--to sleep a total of 17 with the comfort of 4.5 baths.

The gourmet kitchen is designed to take advantage of the Island's bounty to create celebratory dinners served at the 12-person custom round dining room or at one of two outdoor patios or inside porch overlooking Ocean Park. The media room, inside porch, breezeways, hammocks and formal living room provide spaces for everyone to alight with a good book, a glass of wine or quiet conversation. Biggers Cottage is among the most unique rental properties available in Oak Bluffs, it will not disappoint!

Here's a link to our Summer 2012 video which shows the spirit of Biggers Cottage and and Island environs filled with family and friends.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: Kelsey and Sissy Biggers live in Connecticut and have owned Biggers Cottage since 1998. A multi-year complete restoration was completed in 2008. Biggers Cottage holds many memories for our extended family and we take great pride as we offer it for rental for the first time since the renovation.

                          Why the Owner Chose Oak Bluffs:
                          Martha's Vineyard is an Island with extraordinary beauty and a rich history. It offers a wide variety of cultural and outdoor activities for all ages. The town of Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard has a unique heritage that instills wonderment in visitors of all ages. It's no surprise that movie stars, politicians and even President Obama and his family chose Martha's Vineyard as a vacation location. In fact, the Obamas visited Biggers Cottage during his historic presidential campaign in 2007.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          This large, sprawling house can accommodate many guests with out the feeling that anyone is underfoot. The short walk to town and beach allows guests to do their own thing or gather as an extended clan.
