About the property

If it is a break from the heat of the city or a full season retreat, this renovated and well equipped cottage on Moshup Trail may be just the place for you. Sited equidistant between Menemsha Pond (1/2 mile to Herring Creek with its tidal salt pond beach access and boat moorings) and the renowned Moshup Trail beaches, this two bedroom cottage surrounded by natural beauty is the perfect getaway to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the up-island beaches, hiking, sailing, kayaking, and great fishing.

The 1250 square foot cottage is situated on five acres of rolling open pasture land shaded by Oak, Maple, and Beech trees that are nicely nestled among field stone retaining walls. The faintly nautical cottage glistens with its new Ash floors accented by exotic hardwood post & beam open framing and trim. This quaint retreat has modern kitchen amenities including a raised breakfast island made out of Maple butcher block for more casual meals. The formal dining area has a maple table for eight. For outdoor dining in the summer months there is a mahogany deck, a built-in dining area that seats eight comfortably, and a gas Weber grill.

Other amenities include: an outdoor shower, 1st floor indoor shower/bath, 2nd floor 1/2 bath, washer, dryer, dish washer, gas top stove with an electric oven, toaster oven, microwave oven, brisker oven, coffee maker, food processor, blender, mixer, lobster cooking pots, dishes & utensils, water dispenser, gas grill, charcoal grill, Comcast High Speed internet with WI FI, AT&T wireless mobile service, fax/printer/scanner, 40” HD TV with Comcast HD cable service, DVD, VCR, an additional flat screen TV for the kitchen or bedroom with DVD & VCR, stereo system, tape and CD player, radios, board games, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and beach toys

I loved this home! It was well cared for and the most comfortable I have ever been in a rental. I have been visiting Martha's Vineyard for a few years and this is the best, most relaxing vacation I have had on the island. This is also one of the best cared for rentals I have stayed at. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking.
