West Tisbury house description
Come share our vacation home, a classic New England shingled house on an acre-and-a-half of woodland within easy reach of Martha's Vineyard's beaches, towns, and varied countryside. The interior is airy, sunlit, comfortably furnished and fully equipped for entertaining or easy family living. Downstairs has an open floor-plan with dining room, kitchen, and living room: plenty of space for a family to gather or to spread out and relax. Upstairs are three bedrooms: two with queen beds and a third with a twin bed and its own deck.
One boundary of the property is an "Ancient Way" public path that connects to a network of hiking trails and bike paths that crisscross the island. Nearby are horse farms, freshwater ponds, and the 4,300-acre Manuel Correllus State Forest; stunning beaches are two miles away. (Passes to residents-only Lambert's Cove Beach and Long Point Beach are available for a fee at the nearby Rec Shed.)
The surrounding wood that you observe from the three decks and many windows of the house is predominantly moss-covered oak with berry underbrush--perfect for birds and small wildlife. The clean, salty Vineyard breezes are refreshing.
The access road to the house is a cul-de-sac. Even though the house feels deep in the woods, Vineyard attractions are easy to reach by car, bike, or the nearby bus route. The ferry at Vineyard Haven is three miles away, and there are shops and restaurants closer by. West Tisbury itself combines the quiet of "Up Island" countryside with amenities like the excellent State Road Restaurant, Alley's General Store, and the weekly flea market in the Grange Hall.

ReviewsWrite a review
I stayed alone at the house the first week of August. It is very private and QUIET!!! Just what I was looking for. The house was very clean and uncluttered, but had everything I needed or wanted, most especially the gas grill and outdoor shower. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. The caretaker lives in the barn on the property and was very friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. I would recommend a car. I got by just fine with my bike and the bus, but a car would have made things easier. That being said, I loved the location for the privacy and easy access to up-island activities, yet Vineyard Haven was only 3 miles away. If you are an avid biker (which I am not, just leisure biker), you really wouldn't need a car. The proximity of Cronig's for groceries was convenient. Finally, Lambert's Cove Beach was a beach heaven. Having access to it was a definite "perk" of staying at the house. Uncle Seth's pond, and Ice House pond ultra charming.
