Car: Recommended

A vacation that will take you back to the simple ways of life without forgoing all the modern luxuries this great home has to offer, The Katama Farm and the Katama Airpark are located at the end of the street. Fresh vegetables are available at the farm stand. Downtown Edgartown is 2.5 miles and South Beach is 3/4 of a mile from the house, both are an easy bicycle ride. A walk in the evenings to visit the farm animals is always a treat, some evening you can just walk to the end of the driveway to see the animals. For those looking for adventure, the bi-plane rides are always a thrill.

Other Activities: Kayaking, Biplane sightseeing, Clamming, Carousel rides, Farm Institute, Lighthouses, Gingerbread Cottages. Bird watching, The Spa at the Mansion House for great massages, facials, manicures and pedicures is a 20 minute ride in Vineyard Haven.

Golf: Farm Neck Golf Course is a 10 minute drive from the house.
