This West Island retreat gives you the opportunity for you to set your own pace and relax here!!! We give discounts to those who stay 7+ days.
This residential island is located in Buzzard's Bay, north of the Elizabeth Islands and Martha's Vineyard. Approximately half the island is a state conservation with nature trails and wild life viewing that eventually brings you out to the ocean. There is a town beach, with lifeguards, on the south side of the island. Also, on the protected side of the island, is a beach perfect for children, and within walking distance of this cottage. Or go across the street and enjoy the ocean side with sandbars to explore during low tide. It will take you 3 - 5 minutes walk to these two beaches. The town beach is about a mile away.
The island is connected by a causeway and has town water and sewer. There is a mariner within a half mile that includes a bar, food, and entertainment on weekend. A supermarket, pharmacy, and restaurants are located within four miles.
The cottage is quite charming. The kitchen, with hardwood floors, has been renovated with new counters, backsplash, stove, microwave, refrigerator and ceiling fan. Every item needed for cooking, baking, and planning your meals are provided. Also, dishes, glasses, wine glasses, etc. provided. Linens and towels are provided.
There are 3 bedrooms, one with a queen size bed/TV, one with double bed/TV, and a third with a twin bed. There is ample space for your clothing.
The living room is open spaced with the dining area. There are two areas for eating. The room also has a gas stove for those chilly nights early summer and early fall, which are far and few during the summer.
The bathroom has a full size tub with shower.
A washer/dryer is available in the premise to use. A gas grill and firepit is available. Also, 2 beach chairs, beach towels, beach shoes, and cart to carry it all are provided to bring to the beach.
We have added a new, private outside shower for your use.
There us a firepit for your use and also a table, 4 chairs, and umbrella on outside patio next to screen porch.
The best for last. This cottage is special because it has an 8 x 12 foot screened in porch. It has a table with two chairs, two other chairs, a chaise, and a wooden swing. The lighted clam shells at night along the ceiling adds to the ambience. Great for the times you want to be outside yet not in the sun, or covered from the rain. Also, no worry of insects at night. The house is also equipped with a front porch with two adirondack chairs.
We are so fortunate to now have many guests return to this lovely cottage. We offer bookings in January and it is often booked by summer and we have to turn many away. Book your retreat soon.
