About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Our nicely appointed house is ideally located halfway between Vineyard Haven village (home of the famous Black Dog Tavern) and bucolic West Chop, in a family-friendly setting of private 1+ acre wooded lots. It's less than 1.5 miles to grea6t fishing, beaches, town, library and shopping, with Mink Meadows public golf course just 5 minutes down the road. Renovated in 2011, furniture, bedding, most appliances and nearly everything else has been updated. Grill out or just relax with friends and family on our spacious deck,- and the lawn provides ample room for croquet, volleyball, or any other activity your family can think of. After dark, the deck and backyard provide the perfect setting for Vineyard stargazing.
Our house has a breezy, open floor plan that easily allows for larger gatherings. The dining table comfortably seats 6-8, or 8-10 with the leaf inserted. There is an additional table on the deck that can also seat 8-10.
The master bedroom features a queen bed, ceiling fan, and 1/2 bath. The sliding doors open onto the deck, and allow for plenty of natural light and provide cool breezes on warm summer nights. The outdoor shower is just steps away, conveniently built right on the deck.
A second bedroom also features a queen bed and ceiling fan.
If you're vacationing with a baby, this room also has a handy three drawer Bellini changing table doing double duty as a bureau. The third bedroom is kid tested and approved, with bunkbeds and reading lights
New Kohler sink, toilet and fixtures have been installed in the main bathroom, and there is an additional 1/2 bath in the master bedroom.
While TV is probably not on your vacation agenda, the living room does have a 32' flat screen, and there is a smaller flat screen in the master bedroom. You'll also find a supply of games in the living room for those occasional rainy days- please also see our website for additional rainy day activities and destinations.
Working during your vacation can be a bummer, but if you must... we do have free wi-fi, phone and a charming 'vacation desk' made from old barnwood.

About the owner: I'm a born and raised Vineyard native, and while I've been away 20+ years, my wife, daughter and I have returned to the island every summer to visit family and friends.
Why the Owner Chose Vineyard Haven, MA, USA:
As a third generation native of Vineyard Haven, I know it well. The town has the perfect balance of beach, boating, walking and bike trails, great restaurants & shopping- all without the 'stuffiness' you mind encounter in other vacation spots. And while we're close to everything, our location has a distinctly 'up-island' feel; woodsy yet with enough land for a sunny backyard, and an occasional flock of wild turkeys stopping by. Vineyard Haven has it all.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We spend a lot of time outdoors while on the island, so our deck and backyard get plenty of use for grilling out and playing games. We keep a boat in the Lagoon, just minutes away- the Lagoon is a great, uncrowded place for all kinds of water activities. We also love to ride bikes, whether it's into town for ice cream, or down nearby Herring Creek Rd, a scenic 1.5 mile dirt lane leading to Lake Tashmoo opening. Please see our website for links to sailboat/kayak/windsufer rentals, as well as great pics and video of the Tashmoo and Lagoon areas.
