About Leslie Hurd

We are year-round residents of Martha's Vineyard, residing in West Tisbury, a fifteen minute drive to East Chop.

This historic house has been in our family for over one hundred years. It was originally the East Chop Yacht Club House, and was moved to the present sight by ox-drawn trolley in the early 1900's. Periodic renovations have preserved the original character while ensuring safety updates.

We are here, should you need us for any reason, including knowledge of the island and its current events, locals tips, etc.

Leslie Hurd purchased this house in 1900

Why Leslie Hurd chose East Chop

This very special neighborhood of East Chop has been a favorite for generations of families who return every year. Rich in history, surrounded by the sea, close to everything yet just far enough away from the town to have a unique and relaxed vibe.

10 minute walk to the beach, another 10 to get to town on foot.

You can catch the bus at the end of the road to get to any of the towns on the island. The buses are bike friendly, which you can rent in Oak Bluffs, or bring your own.

What makes this house unique

Relaxation and exploring our unique island.

Comfortable Home, Lovely Neighborhood, Responsive Owner

  • 4 of 5

Planned an all girls outing to the Vineyard in August and was very happy with this property. The house is very clean and well maintained. The decor of the home is very country-chic and overall comfortable. Initially we were worried about the distance of the house from town, but it turned out to be a non-issue. Downtown Oak Bluffs is about a 15 - 20 minute walk away and it was great getting our daily exercise by either walking or biking. The East Chop lighthouse is 5 minutes away, which was nice to pass on our bike rides to Vineyard Haven. Overall, I would recommend this property and look forward to staying here again in the future.

Picture this: A beautiful quiet morning with coffee or tea on the porch, perhaps a stroll to the bluff overlooking the ocean view of 180 degrees, just a two block walk straight up Munroe Av. to East Chop Drive. From here you can continue to the path leading to the public beach which has a jetty on the end, which is a big hit with kids who can discover crabs, clams and assorted wildlife. Look above for the Ospreys nesting just behind you high in their pole nest. Pack your lunch and beverages. For a quicker trip to and from the house, bicycles can be rented nearby, or bring your own. Town is just another five minutes away with much shopping, eateries, music, and activities. Take the kids on a fishing charter aboard the Skipper, a kid-friendly operation located right in Oak Bluffs harbor. From here you can also ride the walk-on ferries to Nantucket and Hyannis as well as Falmouth. The public beaches beyond this point are expansive and extend out headed towards State Beach in Edgartown.
