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?
