About the Property
3 BR, 2 bth (Sleeps 6)
The Red Hat’s spacious yard, surrounded by trees, is located in the rural center of the Island. Easily accessible to all Island beaches, a vacation here is restful and easy.
Your Stay includes an exclusive pass for the stunning white sand beach at Lambert’s Cove. Lambert’s Cove is a beach for young families as well as a quiet beach where adults can sit and read. A swimmer’s paradise on the bay. West Tisbury’s ocean waves are at Long Point on the Atlantic Ocean side of town. Young children play in the large pond there.
The Red Hat is just steps from a very fun General Store, The Farmers Market, the Bike Path and much more. Privacy like this is hard to find so conveniently located. All Island beaches are within a ten minute drive. A short ten-minute walk finds the sleepy town center of historic West Tisbury.
West Tisbury enjoys a relaxed and rural quality with great bike paths, many lovely conservation areas, a fitness center, a coffee shop, grocery store, the Island's best pizza – and even a nightclub tucked away among old growth trees and greenery.
Comfortable yet artful furnishings add to the ease of this home. The Red Hat is fully equipped with linens and towels, AC and all supplies.

- A wonderfully sunny, private yard covers an acre around the house. There is a hammock at the far end of the yard for luxurious country naps. And the outdoor hot shower on the deck?... It's the best of Vineyard living! Guests love it. Mature trees create lots of privacy and 'chill'. Walk to town, bike path and the best Farmer's Market on the Island. ...moreless

West Tisbury has many conservation areas of merit. Sepiessa near the house has 173 acres of prime coastal forest and meadow that opens onto The Tisbury Great Pond, just behind the Atlantic Ocean. Martha's Vineyard has world-class beaches on the ocean and on the bay where children enjoy the calm water. Lambert's Cove, one of the nicest beaches on the entire island is only accessible for West Tisbury residents and renters. It's on the bay, with no waves, and provides wonderful and safe swimming for all ages. Ice House Pond, also in West Tisbury, has pristine water for a memorable swim.
Gallery openings, benefits, loads of varying activities from children's dance-a-rama to lectures, concerts and films fill the calendar all summer long.
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: The Vineyard was our family vacation every summer of my childhood. The island drew me back for a visit and I never left! I started The Red Hat Bed and Breakfast, which was soon a popular success. After 12 happy years as an inn keeper, I decided to get myself out of the house a bit. And so, The Red Hat is now available for weekly summer rental. During winter months, I dance with an improvisational modern dance troupe here on the Island and put my feet into ballroom shoes as much as possible.
Why the Owner Chose West Tisbury, MA, USA:
The Red Hat has the most delightful deck and backyard of peace and quiet, and easy-on-the-eyes greenery. The house is welcoming and comfortable. West Tisbury is the beginning of 'Up Island' which is the more rural part of the island. It is close enough to the action of 'Down Island' but more green and more restful. West Tisbury is like the Berkshires surrounded by beach. This town is convenient to everything on the island, and has the most diverse swimming options. Known for its rich farmland, West Tisbury is also where most of the island writers and artists live. For this it is called the 'Athens' of the island.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love being up-island, the more rural part of the island. And i love having so much open yard around me. My property is surrounded by gorgeous tall trees. It's very soothing, quiet and visually restful. It's also very near the eclectic island icon, alley's general store where you can find almost anything. Most convenient!!
