Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Bean house. It is comfortable and the Beans are so accommodating. Gary is always available to be sure you have everything you need. They sent a really nice gift basket from the local Pilot Hill Farm that we all enjoyed. The location is also convenient to town and we enjoyed the private beach. Sitting on the beach and just watching the boats and the osprey was a real treat. The house is well equipped with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. Just pack a bathing suit and some sheets and you vacation is complete.

Quiet retreat close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cute converted barn on Pilot Farm. The house feels private and set away in the woods, while only being a short drive from everything on the Vineyard. The living room was comfortable and the kitchen was one of the best equipped of any house we've stayed in. (Sharp knives and plenty of cookware!) Gary was an excellent host, and was extremely responsive to any questions we had prior to the stay, and made sure to check in via email during our stay to ensure all was well. We had a great stay, and would definitely return.

A magical house!

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to the Vineyard for over 20 years, and this is truly one of the loveliest summer rentals I’ve had. Secluded in the wooded paths of Pilot Hill, it’s very private – yet it’s a quick drive to the association beach or into Vineyard Haven.

You’ll find all the necessities --- great outdoor shower, nice appliances, comfy furniture --- but it is so much more. Everywhere you look, there are special touches: twinkling lights, lace curtains, colorful window boxes, warm barnwood, wildflowers, a generous covered porch. It’s really a magical house.

And the Beans were so great to work with—very thoughtful and responsive. Can’t wait to go back next year. Thank you, Gary and Jennifer!

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Beans' with my 10-year-old daughter and her young cousin. The house is just lovely, with a comfortable, airy, spacious, elegant farmhouse feel, and well-stocked with everything you might need. The Beans were extremely helpful and accommodating (gift basket with basil and fresh eggs!), and the location (minutes to Vineyard Haven but very quiet and peaceful) was great. We loved passing the cows, chickens and goats on the way to the little beach. It's a truly beautiful property, even nicer than we expected!

Vineyard Haven Barn

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this secluded house. The barn was beatifully renovated with plenty of space for our family of 5. Gary was a gracious host leaving a wonderful basket of flowers and vegatables from the farm. What a nice touch! He also helped up with getting an earlier ferry back. The place had everything we needed for the beach. It was centrally located but was on a very private lot. I would highly recommend this to families looking for a quiet stay where you can enjoy all the vineyard has to offer. Thanks Gary!
