Car: Not Necessary

Picture this: A beautiful quiet morning with coffee or tea on the porch, perhaps a stroll to the bluff overlooking the ocean view of 180 degrees, just a two block walk straight up Munroe Av. to East Chop Drive. From here you can continue to the path leading to the public beach which has a jetty on the end, which is a big hit with kids who can discover crabs, clams and assorted wildlife. Look above for the Ospreys nesting just behind you high in their pole nest. Pack your lunch and beverages. For a quicker trip to and from the house, bicycles can be rented nearby, or bring your own. Town is just another five minutes away with much shopping, eateries, music, and activities. Take the kids on a fishing charter aboard the Skipper, a kid-friendly operation located right in Oak Bluffs harbor. From here you can also ride the walk-on ferries to Nantucket and Hyannis as well as Falmouth. The public beaches beyond this point are expansive and extend out headed towards State Beach in Edgartown.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1900

About the owner: We are year-round residents of Martha's Vineyard, residing in West Tisbury, a fifteen minute drive to East Chop. This historic house has been in our family for over one hundred years. It was originally the East Chop Yacht Club House, and was moved to the present sight by ox-drawn trolley in the early 1900's. Periodic renovations have preserved the original character while ensuring safety updates. We are here, should you need us for any reason, including knowledge of the island and its current events, locals tips, etc.

Why the Owner Chose Oak Bluffs:
This very special neighborhood of East Chop has been a favorite for generations of families who return every year. Rich in history, surrounded by the sea, close to everything yet just far enough away from the town to have a unique and relaxed vibe. 10 minute walk to the beach, another 10 to get to town on foot. You can catch the bus at the end of the road to get to any of the towns on the island. The buses are bike friendly, which you can rent in Oak Bluffs, or bring your own.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Relaxation and exploring our unique island.
