About Rebecca

The Pennacook House is a wonderful place for family gatherings, play and relaxation, with island activities for all ages right near by.

Here I am collecting shells at the beach with my twins.

Rebecca purchased this house in 1994

Why Rebecca chose Martha's Vineyard

My husband and I visited Martha's Vineyard in the spring of 1994 and fell in love with the island and the town of Oak Bluffs. We found the Pennacook House for sale, bought it and spent the next year completely renovating it. We love the island in winter, too! It's peaceful and ideal for long walks or cozying up on the couch with a Latte from Espresso Love.

What makes this house unique

Ideal location.

This house is just a special place - it has a great feel:

Gorgeous period details.

Modern conveniences.

Lots of light.

Excellent lay-out.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Rebecca,

Just wanted to let you know how much my family enjoyed our stay at your home for the week of our daughter Natalie’s wedding. It truly was Home Sweet Home for us for that week. We loved having our morning coffee and evening glasses of wine on the front porch. We shared several family meals in the beautiful kitchen. Enjoyed grilling in the backyard. Your cozy, clean, comfortable home added to the joy celebrated by our family that week. We look forward to staying at the Pennacook House again.

Sincerely,
Sep 2013

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Ample space and close to town. Great vacation home for family and friends. Wish it had just one more full bathroom as we sometimes had to wait to use the shower but otherwise perfect!

Great! Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

The property was perfect for our group size and located within walking distance to central Oak Bluffs. Listed in amenities are a patio and deck, which technically there was, but the deck consisted of stairs to the backyard and the patio was only big enough for the picnic table. The front porch was great to sit and enjoy the outside, which we did. I would rent again but also hope that some updates would be made to the half bath sink.

Lovely quirky home

  • 5 of 5

Pennacook House was a great place for our extended family of 6 adults and 1 toddler to stay. The house was spacious and well equipped. It's also a super quick walk of 5-10 mins to get to any of the great restaurants and ice cream places on Circuit ave and to Inkwell beach.

We enjoyed our stay at Penacook House.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week at 71Penacook Avenue. The house is clean, well equipped and conveniently located, walking distance to the beach.

We enjoyed our walks on the beach in the morning as well as just sitting on the porch enjoying the night's breeze. Our favorite room was the kitchen as it was quite spacious as we sipped our coffee in the mornings and our drinks at night. Would definitely go back to Penacook House.

Car: not necessary

Martha's Vineyard Island has wonderful activities from biking to beaches to dining and shopping. Our house is close to all the activities offered in Oak Bluffs. It is an easy bike ride (miles of bike paths), bus ride (the bus stop is close) or drive to the rest of the island.
