West Tisbury house description

RELAX in your own private EDEN -- !

Enjoy full Peace and Quiet and Privacy in this bucolic yet convenient setting. Easily accessible to all Island beaches, The Red Hat will make your vacation restful and easy. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a hot outdoor shower and a fully equipped kitchen.

Comfortable yet artful furnishings add to the ease of this home. Drink your morning coffee on the luxurious back deck while watching birds, bunnies and butterflies in the very spacious backyard. Soak up some Vineyard Vibes in the hammock.

The Red Hat is just steps from a very fun General Store, The Farmers Market, the Bike Path and much more. Privacy like this is hard to find so conveniently located. All Island beaches are within ten minutes’ drive.

Your Stay at The Red Hat includes an exclusive beach pass for the stunning crescent of white sand at Lambert’s Cove. A swimmer’s paradise, Lambert’s Cove offers delightful views of the western side of the Island and sunset over the water. You can take long leisurely walks on this beach past high cliffs and sand dunes; it is a safe and enjoyable beach for families with small children as well as a quiet beach where adults can sit and read undisturbed. West Tisbury’s dramatic Long Point is on the Atlantic ocean. A large pond right at that beach is where young children and families congregate. Both are safe for little children and enjoyable for adults.

A short ten-minute walk from The Red Hat is the sleepy town center of historic West Tisbury. The Island's best Farmer's Market and Artisans Fair are there. You will also find the eclectic Island landmark of Alley's General Store where necessities and novelties for all ages await you.

West Tisbury enjoys a relaxed and rural quality with great bike paths, many lovely conservation areas, a fitness center, a coffee shop, the Island's Best Pizza – and even a nightclub all tucked away among the town’s tall trees.

The Red Hat is fully equipped with linens and towels, AC and all supplies. We aim to make your vacation on Martha's Vineyard the Best Vacation Ever.

                          West Tisbury has many conservation areas of merit. Sepiessa near the house has 173 acres of prime coastal forest and meadow that opens onto The Tisbury Great Pond, just behind the Atlantic Ocean. Martha's Vineyard has world-class beaches on the ocean and on the bay where children enjoy the calm water. Lambert's Cove, one of the nicest beaches on the entire island is only accessible for West Tisbury residents and renters. It's on the bay, with no waves, and provides wonderful and safe swimming for all ages. Ice House Pond, also in West Tisbury, has pristine water for a memorable swim.

                          Gallery openings, benefits, loads of varying activities from children's dance-a-rama to lectures, concerts and films fill the calendar all summer long.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About the owner: The Vineyard was our family vacation every summer of my childhood. The island drew me back for a visit and I never left! I started The Red Hat Bed and Breakfast, which was soon a popular success. After 12 happy years as an inn keeper, I decided to get myself out of the house a bit. And so, The Red Hat is now available for weekly summer rental. During winter months, I dance with an improvisational modern dance troupe here on the Island and put my feet into ballroom shoes as much as possible.

                          Why the Owner Chose West Tisbury:
                          The Red Hat has the most delightful deck and backyard of peace and quiet, and easy-on-the-eyes greenery. The house is welcoming and comfortable. West Tisbury is the beginning of 'Up Island' which is the more rural part of the island. It is close enough to the action of 'Down Island' but more green and more restful. West Tisbury is like the Berkshires surrounded by beach. This town is convenient to everything on the island, and has the most diverse swimming options. Known for its rich farmland, West Tisbury is also where most of the island writers and artists live. For this it is called the 'Athens' of the island.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          I love being up-island, the more rural part of the island. And i love having so much open yard around me. My property is surrounded by gorgeous tall trees. It's very soothing, quiet and visually restful. It's also very near the eclectic island icon, alley's general store where you can find almost anything. Most convenient!!
