Property description

Welcome to "Eventide." Your vacation home is nestled in Oak Bluffs- Martha's Vineyard. It is a charming antique cottage on a sprawling lawn perfectly positioned for outdoor activities, lazy afternoons on the porch or a 5 minute drive into town for local dining fare, shopping and sightseeing.
.
The home features 5 Bedrooms furnished as follows: First Floor Bedroom with a Twin bed. Second Floor: 4 bedrooms. Our Nautical themed bedroom has a full-size (double) bed. Our beachy twins bedroom offers 2 twin beds. The 3rd and 4th bedrooms each have a spacious Queen bed. This last bedroom connects to a bathroom with a private entrance up a small stairway off the kitchen. Walk just 10 minutes to the saltwater beaches at Eastville Point and Lagoon pond. Our home is equipped with high speed wireless internet (wifi). Connecting to it is simple, there is a network password in the information binder located in the dining room. There is also a television in the family room that provides many favorite cable tv channels. We have a wide array of DVD movies also located in the living room for your enjoyment.
.
As you approach EVENTIDE, watch for a small, white trellis (archway) centered on the Temahigan Ave. hedge. There's also a white, decorative chain outside of the hedge.
.
The house is near East Chop, halfway between the downtowns of Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven at 1.7 miles to either. Your family or group will enjoy the shade of the porch and the sunny yard bordered by hedges and a solid white fence. The porch table seats 9 and is protected from the sun and rain. There are also plenty of outdoor chairs to arrange as you like.
.
The fully-furnished home has a well-equipped kitchen. Everything needed for cooking and serving meals is provided. Just add your favorite foods or enjoy a variety of 'take-out.' There's also a charcoal grill for that smoky-flavored meal. Steam veggies on it by wrapping them in foil with a bit of water.
.
The dining room, living room, 2 baths, 3 showers and 5 inviting bedrooms, comfortably sleeping 9, make the house a home. The family room has a large, flat-screen Cable TV, VCR-DVD player, WiFi (includes High-Speed Internet), couch, chairs, cushions, table and folding meal and snack tables. There's also a 2nd flat-screen cable TV upstairs.
.
Playing cards, games, puzzles and many books are provided for your enjoyment. Look in the dining room closet for games.
.
Across the breezeway from the kitchen is the laundry room with a washer, dryer, charcoal grill, yard games and a shower.
.
Bringing A Car With You?: We provide an excellent Island map for our guests. A great, inexpensive bus system ($1.25 per-town travelled) connects with the airport, ferry terminals, our house and most points on the Island. 1-, 3- and 7-day passes are available for purchase on board any bus at deep discounts. Cars, bikes and Mopeds may be rented near both ferry terminals. Please note that, for safety, mopeds are not permitted on the bike paths.
.
A ferry reservation is required to bring a car to Martha's Vineyard Island They operate between Woods Hole on Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard.
.
Check-in time at 'Eventide' is 4:00 p.m. and check-out is by 10:00 a.m. If you choose to leave your car on the mainland, there is a calendar-day charge of $10 to $16 at most ferry ports. Passenger-only ferries operate from Woods Hole, Falmouth and New Bedford, MA and Quonset Point, RI. You may also fly to the Vineyard: Go to the CapeAir website for schedules and reservations. Some of the larger airlines, may also serve The Vineyard. The MV Airport is 7 miles from the house and is also served by bus.
.
BIKE TRAILS: One of the many bike paths, goes by the house, continuing several miles to the Vineyard Haven-Edgartown Road. From there, turn right for the Vineyard Haven bike trail or left to Edgartown. There are also bike trails through the State Forest, so you really can 'get away from it all.' Many bike paths are marked on the road map and new ones are being added.
.
Public Transportation makes a car less necessary. We use the local bus system, ourselves, with a stop close to the house. Fares are simple to understand. Based upon 2016, they are $1.25 per town traveled. Seniors are only .75 per town. Discounted passes are sold on-board all buses and are valid for 1, 3 or 7 days (exact change or bills, please). One example of the savings is a round-trip to Aquinnah and the famous clay cliffs, costing $12.50, while a 1-full-day pass is just $8. A 3-day pass is $18 and a 7-day is just $30.
.
Do you want to have a car with you, but can't get a car-ferry reservation? On-Island car rental agencies include Hertz and Avis, along with some local brands. Contact them at their websites or toll-free numbers.
.
More Vineyard Info: The Martha's Vineyard Chamber of Commerce is located within 1 block of both ferry terminals: Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven (Tisbury). We can also recommend the Vineyard Gazette and Martha's Vineyard Times newspapers, available at the Vineyard Haven Cumberland Farms, pharmacies, food and general stores throughout the Island. Also check near the ferry terminals for newspaper vending machines.
.
There are several free publications about Island happenings, which you may pick up on the ferries, at their terminals and in various stores on The Vineyard.

Car: Recommended

Newly Air Conditioned, YOUR VINEYARD VACATION HOME is halfway between the downtowns of Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven. It has a large, wrap-around porch and white lattice with hedges on 3 sides. There's a solid white fence along the 4th side.

A white trellis (arch) welcomes you in the front hedge and leads to a stone walkway to the house.

.

Easy access to downtown Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven (Tisbury) is 5 minutes by car or bus and about 10-15 minutes on a bicycle. Trips to points of interest on the island, are best reached by bus or car.

.

Newcomers to Martha's Vineyard will appreciate a 'Martha's Vineyard Sightseeing' tour as an introduction to the Island. Their buses meet most of the daytime ferries in Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven. A tour is usually 2 hours. Rent bikes and visit the Chambers of Commerce near the Steamship Authority ferry terminals in Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs.

.

Need a car? It is less expensive to bring your car over from the mainland than it is to rent one on the island. Hertz, Avis and local rental agencies are all represented. A car-ferry reservation is required to bring a vehicle to the island. Reserve early, as summer space fills quickly.

.

Other Activities: Oldest carousel in the US; golf, mini golf, hiking, kayaking, video/pinball arcades, shopping, restored movie theaters, night clubs, health clubs.

.

For the best in restaurant variety, visit Oak Bluffs. Most are on or near Circuit Avenue, the main street. Both American and ethnic foods are offered.

.

We highly recommend Linda Jean's Restaurant on Circuit Avenue for family dining or just a cup of tea or 'coffee and....' They are open all day and their prices are reasonable. We suggest you get there by 5:00 p.m. for an evening meal, especially on a weekend. The nearby Strand movie theater, just down the street, has been restored. Take a look; see a movie. Maybe catch one you missed on the mainland.

.

Downtown Vineyard Haven has a working, restored movie theater as well as restaurants, cafes, clothing and souvenir shops.

.

Island-made ice cream is plentiful in Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and Edgartown.

.

If you take a ride to Aquinnah to see the famous Gay Head clay cliffs, be sure to stop by Alley's General Store in Chilmark. It really does have a little of everything including a working Post Office.

.

Have fun at the mini-golf in Vineyard Haven across from Cronig's market. They also have Island ice cream for after the game.

.

Golf: Public golf courses are located in Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs. The nearest, Farm Neck, is less than a mile from the house.

.

Call us when you have questions.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1919

About the owner: Welcome to your Martha's Vineyard home, "Eventide". The Bowers Family strives to provide a welcoming home to all travelers. We enjoy making new connections who enjoy the Martha's Vineyard Island life. We hope that you explore the island, make some great memories and come to enjoy the island life that our family has grown to love.

Why the Owner Chose East Chop, Oak Bluffs, MA, USA:
"Eventide" has been a vacation destination for our family for many years. The house is located halfway between the downtowns of Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven with easy access to all Island points. Privacy: the yard is bordered on 3 sides by hedges and dense forest beyond 2 of them. The 4th side has a solid white fence and the house faces Temahigan Ave. and the saltwater of Vineyard Haven harbor.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Your Vineyard yard has enough room for 3 yard games to be played at the same time on a lush green lawn. The house has a large, wrap-around porch with many chairs that can be set to your liking. A round picnic table on the porch, seating 9, can be used for a meal even if it is raining. Another table is in the dining room, where meals, games, puzzles and conversation may be enjoyed. We include the high speed internet, television channels and DVD library for your enjoyment. . There are 'back stairs' in the house between the kitchen and queen bedroom above it. You can sneak downstairs, undetected, for a midnight snack. See if the children can figure out which staircase has more steps. How 'bout which one is steeper? Adults: watch your heads on the back stairway, whether going up or down it. . Eventide includes a 3rd, hot and cold shower, within an outdoor enclosure. Some of our guests choose this one over the 2 indoor showers. It's a nice option to have and you may decide on a favorite among the 3. Why not try them all?
