About the owner: I first came to the Vineyard with my family as a teenager. It was love at first sight. Almost 20 years later I met my husband, Scott. It was love a first sight all over again. Our bond flourished during romantic, fall trips to the Vineyard and a mere 11 months later we were wed in a small, private ceremony on Lambert's Cove beach in West Tisbury. Today we are living our dream. Welcome to our new home.
Why the Owner Chose Aquinnah:
When we found the house on Lobsterville Road we fell in love with everything about it. Aquinnah is at the outermost point of Martha's Vineyard, it is away from the hectic crowds of down island and yet just a short drive via some of the most picturesque roads imaginable where working artisan farm pastures roll gently into the Atlantic.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy romps through Edgartown and Oak Bluffs and then drive back to your "up island" retreat. Walk to Lobsterville Beach and Menemsha, and enjoy exclusive access to Philbin beach with your lease, one of the most famed beaches on the island and the East Coast. You are just over a mile to the Gay Head cliffs and lighthouse, a National Historic Landmark, offering breathtaking ocean vistas.
