10 min walk to Martha's Vineyards beautiful State Beach and 5 minute bike ride to Edgartown’s shops and restuarants! Bright sunny 3 bedroom cottage, right off Beach RD, adjacent to the Island’s extensive bike path connecting you to the all of Martha's Vineyard's 5 towns and beaches. This location can’t be beat! Perfect for a family's easy week at the beach. You won’t be looking for parking, just stroll or bike to the beach in the morning. Miles of wooded trails with water view across the street for a morning walk or jog, then a quick rinse off in the outside shower.
In the evening walk, bike or take the bus to either Oak Bluffs or Edgartown for dinner and nightlife. The bus stop is 50 feet from your front door and comes every 15 min in the summer.

The cottage is part of a complex of buildings which once made up the historic Martha’s Vineyard COOP Dairy. This sunny three bedroom once served as it's carriage house. The Martha’s Vineyard COOP Dairy was an operating dairy and milk bottling facility until the mid 1960's. During its hay-day, all the island’s farmers brought their milk to be processed and bottled here. The owners unit was the Dairy’s barn and is adjacent to the carriage house.
We are year round residents and would be glad to help out with some tips to make your stay a memorable one.
Have a great summer!
Mike and Sandy
HERE'S A FEW FUN THINGS GOIN' ON NEARBY
BIKING - Great location as a base camp for biking the island. Bring your own bike or easily rent one, bike rental shop is just a 10 minute walk toward town, they also will deliver.
FISHING - Just a 1/2 mile away the bend in the road beach offers some of the best surfcasting on the Vineyard, head another 1/2 mile down the road and drop a line off big bridge, great spot for Stripers and Blues.
CLAMMING - Just a ten minute walk is Sengekontacket pond by far one of the very best clamming spots on the Island.
CRABBING - 5 minute walk toward the beach is a colvert where the salt pond rushes under the road. Great spot for catching delicious blue crabs.
KITE SURFING - Well known for its great windsurfing, Sengekontacket pond is also quickly becoming known as one of the best places in the east coast for kite surfing. Vineyard native, Rob Douglas, earned the title of fastest kite sailor in the world & can be regularly found rippin' it up on Sengekontacket pond.
KAYAKING - On the far side of the State Beach, 10 min by bike, Kayaks can be rented by Island Spirit Kayak. They also offer great day and sunset tours island wide.
BRIDGE JUMPING - One mile down the road, nothing like Jumping off State Beach's big bridge! You'll regularly find kids and adults alike enjoying the 10' plunge into the cool waters of the Vineyard Sound on a hot summer day.
SNORKELING Nothing like the Caribbean, but the waters here are typically, surprisingly clear. Floating around the rock jetties of either of the two bridges along State Beach you can ride the current in or out of Sengekontacket pond. Small fish, conch, starfish, crabs and the occasional Stripped Bass are your quarry. The free ride in the current is worth the effort. After 15 years living here this is still one of my favorites on a hot day!
