About the Property

5 bedroom, 3 bath, close to beach, large covered front porch

Summer cottage, 5 bedrooms (sleeps 8), 3 full baths plus outdoor shower. Old-fashioned summer house (no central heating). Available June - September. Ideal for family vacation; in walking distance to private and public beaches.

This classic 'Old Menauhant' beach property offers privacy, charm, and access to fishing, crabbing, and beachcombing in a waterside community that has not lost the peace and serenity of old Cape Cod. The wide old fashioned front poarch invites relaxation for morning coffee, afternoon reading, and evening cocktails.

Walk the neighborhood and enjoy views of Martha's Vineyard, Washburn Island, Vineyard Sound, Waquoit Bay, and other classic beach homes.

Car: Recommended

Old Menauhant, a private enclave of 100 homes connected by dirt roads, slow moving cars, many bicycles, and a few golf carts, is located on a protected estuary with direct access to Vineyard Sound.

In July and August the Menauhant Yacht Club (for a membership fee) offers tennis, and two large, private beaches. There is also a large, public beach within easy walking distance.

Nearby Falmouth, Mashpee Commons, Woods Hole, and historic Sandwich all provide a variety of shopping, restaurants, and other attractions. Ferries to Martha's Vineyard run regularly from Falmouth and Woods Hole and a ferry to Nantucket sails from Hyannis (17 miles away). Whale watching tours also run from Hyannis in season.
