Our waterfront cottage is located on Crystal Lake, with views of Vineyard Haven Harbor, West Chop, and Vineyard Sound. Off a quiet street, surrounded by ¾’s of an acre of cedar trees, this private setting is a bike ride away from both Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven (about 2 miles each). Put in a kayak on the lake or ride your bike to the public beach, about a mile away. Take a stroll to the East Chop lighthouse for a Sunday view of Nantucket Sound from atop the light. Great restaurants and shopping in both towns, public transportation just a block away.
Other Activities: kayaking, flea markets, shopping
Year Purchased: 1950
About the owner: Martha's Vineyard has been an important part of my family since my grandmother began coming as a girl. She, my father and I all spent our honeymoons on the island. I learned to row on Crystal Lake, worked summer jobs in Oak Bluffs, and met my husband here. Although we call Narragansett, RI, home, this is where our heart is!
Why the Owner Chose East Chop, Oak Bluffs, MA, USA:
This dear cottage was purchased by my grandfather in 1950, probably a decade or more after it was moved to its Crystal Lake site from the Vineyard Methodist Campgrounds. It was originally a Hodgson Portable Camp House, the first 'prefab' cottage made in the US, consisting of three 12'x6' sections that made up the kitchen, small bedroom and bathroom. It still has the wing nuts (visible in the kitchen), that held everything together! When it was moved, the front room was added. If you look closely, you'll see the original clapboard siding and two windows, which are now covered. I inherited this property in 2008, and in 2009 began a total renovation. We buttoned it up against the elements, added heating, radiant heat in two of the floors, totally redid the kitchen, bathroom, and painted inside and out. Outside, we opened up the view to the lake and Vineyard Sound, created more lawn and have planted shrubs and flowers. Not only is the cottage charming, but the setting is one of the best on the Island.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Whenever someone comes to make a delivery or pay a visit, the first comment is 'I never new this was here!' Our cottage is private, secluded from the hustle and bustle, but right on the lake and with a view of all the comings and goings in Vineyard Haven Harbor. West Chop is in the distance and on clear days, you can see the Cape. You feel like you have a spyglass on the world in your own private setting. Entertainment during cocktail hour includes the daily sailing of the Alabama, the square rigger out of Vineyard Haven Harbor. Some days it is followed by the Shenandoah. As the day gives way to evening, our sunsets are jawdropping. Whether enjoyed on the deck or inside the living room with a panoramic view from the windows, this is the perfect setting for a Vineyard escape.
