About the owner: Homeowner is an artisan who spends winters on the island weaving high end textiles for sale in private shows and galleries. Summers are for cruising the New England Coast with friends and family aboard our boat- making the house available for guests.
Why the Owner Chose Yarmouth:
Family has been on Great Island for over 90 years. Four generations of summer memories and family history. In the living room you will find the mantlepiece from the family's original summer home. This house was built 14 years ago. Situated on the west side of the Island, the house takes advantage of the prevailing summer breezes. The large covered porch is the place to be when you are not swimming or sailing or participating in the many activities available here. It's a wonderful gathering and entertaining space. The entire island is accessible without need for a car. Once you arrive you can park the car and walk or bike everywhere. Lovely view of the pond out back, walking paths right out the door, a golf course, playground, tennis courts, boating, beaches-all in a protected tranquil setting.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great Island is a special place. It is Cape Cod as it once was. Gorgeous private white sand beaches, lovely protected cove for kayaking, sailing and swimming, beautiful walking trails. Bring your kayak or boat; docks and moorings are available. The community is safe and private with 24 hour security. Children are busy and active with organized activities available-no video games needed! Tennis and golf are steps away. Yoga classes are held several times a week in a lovely boathouse overlooking the cove. There is a beach club for luncheons so you won't have to worry about midday meals. Chef is available for catering and private parties with appropriate notice. This is everything a summer vacation should be. Close to ferries for Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, and easy access to all Cape Cod has to offer-if you ever chose to leave the island to explore.
