Property description

Only a 5-minute walk to the nicest family beach on Martha's Vineyard! This quintessential Vineyard Cape is on a quiet country lane, set back from the road and is surrounded by a private acre of beech trees. Downstairs is a front-to-back fireplaced livingroom with fireplace (New, comfy livingroom furniture from Boston Interiors for Summer 2013), large kitchen with Hubbardton Forge lighting, eating area with room for 10, and a full bath. The house has custom Vermont and Maine handmade beds, Crate and Barrel kitchen set, hardwood floors, Claire Murray hand-hooked area rugs, and stainless steel kitchen appliances. French glass doors lead to decks off the livingroom and kitchen, with an outdoor dining area.

Upstairs are four bedrooms: two with queen-sized beds, one with a bunkbed and a trundle, and one with a trundle that opens to a king size bed or two twins. There is a bathtub in the upstairs bath, and a shower in the first floor bath plus a private outdoor shower.

Enjoy big breakfasts? The kitchen is well equipped with a waffle maker, electric griddle, blender, coffee grinder and Cuisinart coffee brewer. In addition, there is a lobster pot, bowls and platters, salad spinner, and a full set of pots and pans - all the comforts of home.

The house is uniquely situated as it is walking distance to three swimming areas. Its a 5-minute walk to the Lambert's Cove Beach parking lot, a resident's only private beach with miles of untouched sand dunes. This beach has fine sand and silver dollar shells. Because it is open to West Tisbury residents and tenants only, it is never crowded. Sunsets on this beach are the best on the island. Your rental includes two family beach passes. Walk to the beach, or drop off the kids, cooler and chairs, and leave the car at the house!

Enjoy swimming in crystal clear ponds? Manaquayak Preserve and Seth's Pond are also less than 10 minutes' walk from the house.

Manaquayak Preserve is one of the newest Martha's Vineyard Land Bank properties, It is a short 5-minute walk from the house. This 12-acre property contains a pristine, glacier-formed kettle pond originally called Ice House Pond. The Land Bank purchased the property in November 2004 through the use of a straw buyer in order to mask the Land Bank's interest from multiple sellers who, the Land Bank said, would likely not have sold to the public agency. From 2004 to Spring 2008, the property was closed to the public while access was being litigated in court. The property finally opened to the public in Summer 2008, but has only 4 parking spaces to limit its use.

Stroll through the Gingerbread Cottages: The grounds of the Martha's Vineyard Campmeeting Association (MVCMA), located in Oak Bluffs just behind the retail district, grew out of the religious 'campmeeting' movement of the 19th century. The campgrounds grew to become one of the largest and best-known campmeeting sites in the country. Visitors to the Cottage Museum can view the interior of a Campground cottage, complete with period furnishings. Also on display are vintage photographs and other documents relating to the history of the Campground.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: David and Amy live in Beverly, MA and fell in love with Martha's Vineyard and Lambert's Cove Beach many years ago during a weekend visit. In their spare time they enjoy sailing and kayaking.

Why the Owner Chose West Tisbury:
We discovered Lambert's Cove Beach while visiting some friends on the island. It was love at first sight when we climbed to the top of the sand dune and took in the magnificent view of the cliffs and ocean. We have traveled extensively in many countries, but Lambert's Cove Beach remains one of our favorite places to relax.
