Live life in the heart of the Vineyard—slow down and enjoy an Island retreat. Stroll to Alley's General Store for a morning coffee and danish. Picnic at nearby Lambert's Cove. Pedal your bike across the road to access the Island's extensive bike trails and browse at a fantastic art gallery. Shop at the local farmers' market and crafts fair, then load up the car with some beach toys and head to the ocean. Buy fish at Menemsha and watch the sunset at Gay Head. Then head home to play a little croquet on on the back lawn, frisbee with the dog, or maybe just kick back and enjoy the evening counting the fireflies, or staking a claim to your own favorite star. Another day starts tomorrow!

About: As a family of four children, we inherited our Island home from our parents who inherited it from their parents. We have mainained this classic Vineyard spot as a connection to our past and as a legacy for our future. John sells wine. Trina is a landscape architect. Sarah resides in New Mexico, and George is an environmental lawyer.
Why West Tisbury: We love West Tisbury. It is an Island location with a rural, agricultural feel. We are close to Vineyard Haven and just a short drive to Edgartown and Oak Bluffs. We can easily get to some fantastic Island restaurants or prepare meals on the back lawn.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our house is walking distance to the farmer's market, Alley's General Store with direct access to all the wonderful bike trails on the Island. It is close to Lambert's Cove and Manemsha. Yet, it is not in the midst of the Island's mid-summer bustle. It has a remote secluded feel. The back lawn is private, beautiful, and affords sweeping Up-Island views.
