About Betsy Sherry

We have vacationed on the vineyard for more than 30 years and finally fulfilled our dreams of owning a house here. We have had fun renovating our house and have enjoyed many wonderful times together at our 'vineyard home'. We hope you can build as many great memories.

Betsy Sherry purchased this house in 2010

Why Betsy Sherry chose Edgartown

Location, Location, Location!!! This is a great spot within walking distance of Edgartown Village; close the all the beaches and Vineyard sites. This is a family friendly house with a wonderful deck for spending many a relaxing afternoon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your cozy cottage was a great place to spend a relaxing family vacation before all the bustle of back to school. The location was a great jumping off point to all the places we love to visit. We had ideal beach weather and enjoyed the fabulous deck. My girls enjoyed the "independence" of the bungalow, the outdoor shower under the stars and hanging up towels on the

clothesline! We all thoroughly enjoyed our week here except that it was too short.

Even Better the Second Time Around!

  • 5 of 5

This summer, our family returned to this quintessential island home for the second consecutive year. Previously, we had spent several years "rental-hopping" trying to match location and space, plus amenities, to our needs. We are thrilled that we found the perfect match for us and our young boys (now ages 6 and 4) and hope to continue to rent as long as Billy and Betsy will have us! This home has it all: location to our favorite spots (walking, driving, and biking), indoor and outdoor space, a cottage which accommodates for outdoor napping for young children (and admittedly, an adult on occasion) and possibly a little independence for kids in their pre-teen+ years.

A short walk, even with young children, to Edgartown, proximity to the grocery store, local brewery, ice cream, play ground, museum, and more!, short drives to our favorite beaches (we tend to stick to our favorites: Long Point Cove and South Beach), and our trips to Aquinnah and Menemsha direct and super easy. You honestly cannot ask for more!

Billy and Betsy are very transparent and quite easy to work with; they are truly eager to help you make the most of your stay.

Fantastic ... everything!

  • 5 of 5

The home and cottage were ideal for our family consisting of two children, aged five and three. Our boys were thrilled with the large, private yard, "ring game", and the ability to hang out in the loft. The beautiful deck offered opportunities to dine and relax at all hours of the day ... especially with our day beginning well before 7:00am! The amenities offered within the home and cottage were outstanding and very much up-to-date; with the extra half-bath proving to be most useful! We all especially enjoyed the outdoor shower ... never once using the indoor shower! A very short walk (even with young children) to the grocery store, ice cream shoppe, fish market, bike shop, and playground were also perks! The walk to Edgartown was fun and allowed us to further explore the town as we were not constantly worried about parking - finding it or staying beyond our time limit. We frequent Long Point Pond and Menemsha on our vacations and this house location could not have been more ideal for these trips! Lighthouse Beach, South Beach, and Right Fork Diner are our other favorite destinations and we were able to enjoy all several times throughout the week because of their close proximity to the house; well under 10minutes. The kind owners are amazing; their attention to detail in addition to renters' satisfaction is unmatched. The boys are still talking about Betsy and Billy's home. We are already looking forward to returning next year!!

Fabulous family cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this beautiful cottage and could not have had a better stay. The main cottage is nicely renovated- we loved the bathroom and very well-appointed kitchen. However, I don't think we used the indoor shower once all week because the outdoor shower was so perfect! The new, separate one-bedroom cottage was perfect for our extra guests for a night, and for the kids to hang out in the rest of the week- and that extra half-bath was a nice feature. The owners were very kind and responsive, and even checked in mid-week to see how things were going. We grilled outside nearly every night and loved using the charcoal grill in the yard. Loved that they also supplied beach chairs.

The absolute best part of this home was the amazing location. It's just on the edge of the main part of Edgartown. We were able to walk into town easily, or walk over to the huge playground and courts at the school basically across the street. There are a ton of great places just around the corner on Main Street as well- Stop & Shop, Edgartown Seafood Market, Lucky Hank's, Dairy Queen (ok, our 8-year old liked it!). We barely used our car all week since we rented bikes, including a toddler trailer, and biked nearly everywhere, including State Beach, Oak Bluffs, Wasque Beach on Chappy, and just down the road a mile to Morning Glory Farm.

We loved staying here and hope we're able to do so again next year! Thank you, Bridget and Family-

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you had a wonderful week. I enjoyed receiving the photo of your little one having a snack on the deck. When we can't be there ourselves we love that others are enjoying our quaint summer cottage. We hope you can return soon. Thank you for taking the time to summit this review! Bridget

Great Edgartown Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this adorable home two summers in a row and could not have been happier. The owners are great to work with, the house is very clean and the guest house, large back deck, and outdoor shower are amazing! The house is conveniently located near State Beach, downtown Edgartown, and a quick walk to a school with multiple playgrounds for different age groups - what more could you look for in with a reasonably priced rental in Edgartown!

I highly recommend this house to anyone looking to vacation on Martha's Vineyard. We are looking forward to our next visit!

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this lovely home. Perfect for getting to the bike trails and walking into Edgartown. The beach was a quick bike ride away too! The house was clean and very cute. Our oldest daughter stayed in the little guest house, and loved it. I would love to have an outdoor shower like the one at the house. It is fantastic!

The owners were very responsive when we had a question. We would not hesitate to rent this house again when we return!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a wonderful week and enjoyed our house. The newly built guest house is everyones favorite getaway - private, comfortable and quiet. The new outdoor shower is sunny with plenty of room for dressing. Arriving from KY you must have really enjoyed the coastal feel of Marthas Vinyard ! We hope you will return to the island and our home. Thank you, Toweys/Sherrys

Adorable, super clean cottage in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

I am in love with this cottage. It's the perfect size for 2-6 guests with the perfect combination of modern amenities and Vineyard charm. We prepared many meals in the small, but well-appointed and super clean kitchen. It was recently renovated and lovely -- we appreciated the great dishwasher that made clean-up a snap while on vacation. The bathroom is small but also renovated -- but it was the outdoor shower we really loved! Speaking of outdoor space, the deck is to die for -- the back yard feels very private. Lots of comfortable seating. A wonderful place to relax!

On top of the charm of the cottage, it's located in a perfect place. 10-minute walk to Edgartown or to the grocery store. Super close to bike paths in all directions (we brought our bikes and did lots of great biking throughout the week.) It's also really close to a couple of great beaches -- State Beach and Katama Beach are within a 5 minute drive (or a 15-20 minute bike ride on well maintained bike paths.)

I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone that wants a great Vineyard vacation -- already thinking of renting it again next year!

Walk to the Historic Village of Edgartown with lovely old homes, wonderful shops and restaurants. Beautiful, guarded beaches within a 5 minute drive or 15 minute bike ride. A short drive to the Flying Horse Carousel in Oak Bluffs, the clay cliffs of Aquinnah and incredible lobster salad sandwiches and clam chowder in the old time fishing village of Menemsha.

We also own VRBO#557542 the property next door. A perfect setup for larger groups, families or friends to have the privacy of their own home but the fun of sharing time together. A quiet narrow road divides the yards.
