About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7-8)

Salt Box style Log Home with open floor plan built by my family with a country feel, located on a wooded lot in the down island town of Oak Bluffs. Central Air and easy walk to local beach that is used by families of the Lagoon Heights area. Beautiful town and state beaches close by. Charter fishing, golf, great restaurants and ample shopping for the occasional rainy day. Many local attractions to visit, gingerbread homes, tabernacle, oldest functioning carosel, walking/ bike trails and nature preserves to keep one busy while enjoying the the Vineyard's laid back, casual nature. First floor bedroom has queen bed, upstairs has the full bed. Loft area has three twin beds. Sceened porch off the deck has wicker funiture, two couches and two comfortable chairs. This provides a comfortable retreat for those that prefer to be away from the crowds yet only a short trip to town.

Keywords: Log home, deck, screened porch, grill, outside shower, quiet neighborhood,walk to local beach, 1 mile to town, restaurants, shopping, fishing, golf.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: I'm a retired Healthcare Administrator and my wife is a practicing Clinical Social Worker in private practice. We purchased the land in 1965 and built in "83. Additions added in 2007.

Why the Owner Chose Lagoon Heights, Oak Bluffs, MA, USA:
This is a family home that we now rent. We also have a two bedroom apartment on the property that we use for ourself, primarily on weekends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What we find attractive about the Vineyard is that the character of the island has not changed in the 51 years that we have been going there. There is more activity and certainly more homes than in the past but the feel is the same and the island remains a safe place to visit and enjoy the tranquility the Vineyard offers.
