  • delightful place

    "Love the house, the porch, the fresh tomatoes in the garden, the clothesline.. everything. Also the location as we could walk to Vineyard Haven downtown for anything we wanted whether groceries, kids beach, coffee shops.... My grand-daughter loved the closet with the built in bed! fit her and her stuffed animal friends very comfortably. And the owners were so EASY to deal with and cared!!!!"

  • Outstanding Experience!

    "Excellent choice for Martha's VIneyard! Perfect East Chop location for walking, riding and enjoying the island, with or without a car. The house is perfectly situated for taking in the harbor from all rooms, and the deck off the back of the house is a vacation unto itself. We enjoyed relaxing on it every day, and the upper deck and sitting area in the MBR are also great retreats. Everything in the house is tastefully appointed and accomodating and as mentioned in other reviews, anything you need to enjoy your vacation is right there at the property. Tom and Laurie are great and offer incredibly comprehensive information so that you have all the island intel you can need- from restaurants to where to get bikes, etc. We will definitely be returning to the vineyard and this home. A truly relaxing and enjoyable experience."

  • Luxurious Peaceful Getaway-5 Stars!!!

    "I have stayed at many VRBO properties and this is by far the most amazing place my husband and I ever stayed. The pictures really do not do this place justice. To begin with, the setting is incredible. You feel like you've stepped onto an exclusive resort. The house itself is modern, welcoming, and extremely comfortable. It feels like the cabin was built and decorated with extreme care and consideration. My husband and I basically used the property ourselves you could easily house another couple and kids. While New Marlborough is remote, we found access to the Southfield Store and Gedney Farm gave us great "night out" options for evenings when we didn't feel like cooking. For exploring the Berkshires we loved this spot. Great Barrington has a ton going on and the house is only a quick 20 minute drive away. Lenox, Stockbridge, and all other Berkshire attraction are only about 30 minutes away. We looked forward to returning to this enchanting cabin after hikes and excursions. We would often enjoy a glass of wine on the porch and watch the sun set and marvel at the setting. Everything in the house is top quality- the linens, pillows, everything. This place is a gem. We feel lucky we got a chance to stay there."

  • Relaxing home in a great location

    "This was our 4th or 5th time at the house. Have lost count. The location of the house is very convenient to lots of activities from whale watching to kayaking to the Dennis beaches and much more. I love the extra outdoor shower. The decor and amenities allow for a much needed relaxing vacation. The kids (teens now) always have a great time at the Cape and look forward to this relaxing week year after year."
