Live life in the heart of the Vineyard—slow down and enjoy an Island retreat. Stroll to Alley's General Store for a morning coffee and danish. Picnic at nearby Lambert's Cove where you'll have private access. Pedal your bike across the road to access the Island's extensive bike trails and browse at a fantastic art gallery. Shop at the local farmers' market and crafts fair, then load up the car with some beach toys and head to the ocean. Buy fish at Menemsha and watch the sunset at Gay Head. Then head home to play a little croquet on on the back lawn, frisbee with the dog, or maybe just kick back and enjoy the evening counting the fireflies, or staking a claim to your own favorite star. Another day starts tomorrow!
This centrally located Island house was once an old haybarn and retains all of its country charm. You can nestle in with numerous books and boardgames for those seldom seen rainy days. It sleeps 9, with upstairs and downstairs master bedrooms, two additional bedrooms, three full baths and an outdoor shower. This is a family-friendly, dog-friendly house. The master bedroom on the first floor has a full bath and attached study—a perfect quiet spot for grandparents, or those not comfortable with steps.
This West Tisbury getaway is a place to call your Island home—for a week, a month, or a season! (longer stays are pro-rated) We welcome inquiries and look forward to talking with you personally to answer any questions you may have!

- The back side of our house is where we spend most of our time when we aren't out and about at the beach or in town. It is a great place to hang out. Near the house we serve cocktails, grill, and relax. The lawn rolls away from the house toward our private meadows. Here we play croquet, wiffleball, soccer, and frsibee. The view is classic Up-Island. Vistas of rolling meadows and forest. ...moreless

Why West Tisbury, MA, USA:
We love West Tisbury. It is an Island location with a rural, agricultural feel. We are close to Vineyard Haven and just a short drive to Edgartown and Oak Bluffs. We can easily get to some fantastic Island restaurants or prepare meals on the back lawn.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is walking distance to the farmer's market, Alley's General Store with direct access to all the wonderful bike trails on the Island. It is close to aLambert's Cove and Manemsha. You can easily line up a private access pass to Lambert's. Yet, it is not in the midst of the Island's mid-summer bustle. It has a remote secluded feel. The back lawn is private, beautiful, and affords sweeping Up-Island views.
