Lovely pastoral setting with an elegant farm house and guest house. Located on sixteen acres abutting Land Bank property on two sides. Quiet privacy, yet just minutes to Lambert’s Cove Beach. Ferry Tickets are available for the week beginning 7/29 and 8/19. The four bedroom house and separate guest house are impeccably decorated and the floor plan lends itself to congregating with the family or having room to spread out. A beautifully landscaped yard and patio allow for quiet relaxing with expansive summer living space! Very close to Lambert's Cove Beach, local farm stands, restaurants, and West Tisbury Village. Ideal for family reunions and special events.

From Vineyard Style Magazine: 'Colin Whyte, President of Martha's Vineyard Construction, left his happy childhood home near Biscayne Bay, FL to start a wonderful and varied journey that would one day lead him to sailboat summers, Martha’s Vineyard mansions and a company built from fortitude and perseverance. “I had enough support and stability at home that I could just go. I never knew that when I left home at age 16, I’d never be back again.” Choosing to go to an all boys boarding school in Tennessee, McCallie School taught hard lessons of discipline and survival. It was there that Colin made life-long friends and began to desire the mysteries that life and experience had to offer. In hope of avoiding a sojourn in Vietnam Colin took off on his motorcycle, partnered with friends, and threw himself into education and small-time enterprises. Self-taught, he learned how to run a successful business from varied jaunts including: house moving, dictionary selling, surfboard renting, interning in the Senate, and—finally, construction clean up. Graduating from Brown University with a liberal arts degree led him to a winter at Law School, and a stint back at Brown Graduate School in art. “Applying to schools, I was really just a kid trying to stay out of Vietnam; little did I know, it was the motorcycle that would save me. A serious accident taught me the power of the motorcycle. My back was handed a lesson and Martha’s Vineyard became my home.”'
Colin purchased this House in 1992

Beautiful private large home
We enjoyed this amazing house during our long September weekend stay. The kids loved running around the large yard, and seeing the family of deer.
We cooked many meals in the large well stocked kitchen with all the tools needed.
Perfect for 2 families to share. I even took a nap in the hammock.
The weather was not great, but we did get to go to Lambert’s Cove Beach (no charge for parking in September) which was amazing. It was cool out but the water was warm and inviting enough for the kids to swim.
We spent one morning at the West Tisbury Farmers Market sampling and buying all the local treats. The great playground right there was an added bonus.
Colin was a great host and at the ready fir any questions we had. We would come back for sure.
Majestic property which makes you feel younare in your own world.
Great property! Truly a private, secluded affair. Colin is very accommodating and goes above and beyond to make the visit to the property and island unforgettable.
As usual, the property is exquisite, private, and perfectly maintained. It also has an owner who is attentive to any shortcomings found.
A truly special spot
We just returned home from spending the Thanksgiving holiday at Turtle Pond. This home is spectacular!! The owners were very hospitable and clearly take the time to make sure that no detail is overlooked. If you are looking for a private, beautiful, cozy, extraordinary place to rent, look no further!! We were sad to leave this slice of paradise and look forward to returning!!
Fantastic! Spectacular grounds. Awesome house for two families
Gorgeous property close to Lampert's cove beach. The house is really well stocked with tons of beach towels/chairs and kitchen extras (like condiments). Lots of common spaces on both floors making it wonderful for two families to share. Rent this place!!!
Ain't no MV virgin no more! 😎😎
Since our wedding day nearly 34 years ago I've been promising friends "I'm coming next year." I didn't know what I was missing. MARTHA'S VINEYARD is truly a magical place with an unmistakeable, unique, feel good energy and vibrant history that has attracted legions of vacationers for decades. I now understand why. We stayed in West Tisbury (15-20 min from Oak Bluffs & Edgartown) on this 16 acre slice of paradise in this most incredibly comfortable, warm and inviting home and guest house. These great photos still don't do justice to its charming splendor. The owner Colin has exquisite taste and meticulously maintains the house and manicured grounds. Mani, Bodhi, Dede and our guest loved it immensely. Ahhhhhhh, what a week of BOV (Bison on the Vineyard) camaraderie, peace, fun, food and recharging.
I strongly recommend staying at TURTLE POND on your next visit!
