Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We bought Fairtide in 2011 as a family gathering place for grandparents, children, and grandchildren. Our family has been coming to the Vineyard since 1946, so it already felt like home to us.

Why the Owner Chose Vineyard Haven, MA, USA:
We have always loved historic houses, and we feel this house has great presence and character. It was built in 1905 by Capt. George Eldridge who made his fame with the Eldridge tide tables, still a family run business making charts used by sailors today for navigation. It is only a few houses up from the heart of Vineyard Haven, but with a double lot it has a feeling of spaciousness, privacy and open sky in the back yard.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house has the character of an old Captain's house with the modern convenience of a new kitchen. We like being able to walk to the ferry, restaurants, shopping, the town pier, and the library, while enjoying the peaceful surrounds of a large property.
