'By The Lee', situated on Sengekontacket Pond, celebrates panoramic ocean views and Vineyard style. Located in private Waterview Farm, it is safe and peaceful. Set on a quiet meadow, the cottage overlooks Sengekontacket Pond, Nantucket Sound and eastward to the rising sun.

Recent renovation highlights cottage charm combined with high ceilings and surprise windows to capture the amazing water views. Bright colors and casual style rejoice in summer. Three bedrooms and three baths afford privacy for all. Relax and dine on the wrap around deck or refresh in the outside shower with an ocean view, of course! Yes, the cottage is air conditioned.

Simply Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying at By The Lee every year since 2008. What keeps us coming back? A spotless, well-appointed home with terrific internet connection. Bright, sunny space with views from every room. Large, comfortable bedrooms with easy access from the master bedroom to terrific outdoor shower. Lovely back deck with beautiful view of little private beach. Farm Neck Golf Course right next door. All of this plus the ideal location for cycling around the island. Overall, a peaceful, calming spot to get away from everyday craziness. Can't imagine a better place to spend a week away. Highly recommend!

Excellent Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at "By the Lee." The house was spotless. All of the bedrooms are very large and the beds were very comfortable. The air conditioning was an unexpected bonus and cooled the house very quickly. The location is perfect and we did not need a car as we opted to get around by bike or bus. We usually dine out when vacationing but wound up having many meals at the house because of the easy to use kitchen, comfortable lay out of the house, and the amazing water views from the deck and living room. Nancy was extremely easy to work with. We will be back for sure.

Beautiful rental with water view!

  • 5 of 5

This was our ninth summer vacationing on the Vineyard and "By the Lee" was by far the best rental we've stay at. House was immaculate and well-stocked. We had three couples in our party and everyone had their own spacious bedroom and private bath. The house is bright with an open living area. Beautiful wrap around deck with water views. House has a great location situated between Oak Bluffs and Edgartown, right off the # 7 and 9 bus lines. Easy access to bike paths. The owners, Nancy and Jon, were wonderful to work with. We will definitely stay at "By the Lee" again.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

By the Lee is a wonderful, charming home in Oak Bluffs. The pictures don't do it justice. The home's location is removed from the downtown traffic yet close enough if you want to venture into the hustle of tourist crowds. It was nice to be within distance to all of the amenities to make us feel at home such as restaurants, supermarkets, DVD rentals, bike rentals, sightseeing, etc. Six of us stayed at the home for a week. The house was large enough for each person to locate an area of the house to claim as theirs. We had a spectacular ocean view. The breeze off the water made the August heat a non issue and we experienced sunsets that were just amazing. I learned about this home from someone who stayed last year. It's all she told me it would be and I definitely recommend the home to anyone. I have already told a few friends about it. The owners greeted us upon arrival and they offer exceptional customer service. My family and I plan to return and hope to stay for 2 weeks. This was the most relaxing vacation I have taken in a long time. I could go on and on. I miss it already!!!!

My family and I have been vacationing on MV for 10 years, and 4 years ago we found "By The Lee". It was just what we were looking for to continue our family tradition. Our daughter was getting married and the up stairs suite was just what a new married couple would want. The suite is a beautiful room with a full bath and a nice sitting area, the views from upstairs are the best. The 2 Bedrooms down stairs are large, the master has its own BR and a nice outdoor shower. There is another bath in the hall that the 3rd BR shares. "By The Lee" is quite large with a very big kitchen (with all the utensils you need to cook and entertain).The living room is also spacious with comfortable seating and a beautiful view of the private salt water pond and the ocean. There is also a very large wrap around deck and again views, views, views. This is a beautiful place that is comfortable, VERY Clean and welcoming. Jon and Nancy are gracious people who want their quests to be comfortable. They are always open to suggestions. We rent for 2 weeks each year and are looking forward to our fifth return to "By The Lee".
