- The large yard is great for ball playing. Serious walkers can walk to the beach from our house down Blue Bark Lane--about 1 1/2 miles. We take morning dips in the pond by walking down our path by wild roses, viburnum and blue berries. In season there are blue crabs to catch (license) in the pond. There are nets and beach chairs and umbrellas for guest's use. Also, lots of Vineyard books and assorted games....moreless

Year Purchased: 1982
About: We live in Chicago where we raised our children. Dr. Freedman was a research professor in the medical school, and his wife taught at the Laboratory School. Our five children now live on both coasts, but we gather at Point Meadow whenever we can, and now it is a beloved place for our grandchildren, who come here from California, Washington, Washington, DC and New York. Three of them chose this place to be married, because it so special and beautiful.
We bought this land from a Vineyard sheep farmer, and lived in tents the first year we owned it. We wanted a house that fit into the beautiful landscape. It was built by an Island builder from the design by William Katzenbach whose other Vineyard houses we admired. Our four boys used the upstairs 'dorm' and our daughter had the room below. Parents slept in the 'little house.' The design allowed people to gather in the main room or have private time in the rest of the house. The children learned to sail to the beach, surf, swim in the pond, fish and play ball in the huge mowed area of the yard.We all love the magnificent view and the unspoiled beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The house is simple and comfortable. We wanted to have a great view so the house is on pilings, with decks connecting the three structures. It has been a great place to celebrate birthdays and weddings, to entertain friends and sink into the peace of the Vineyard.
