About the Property

Lovely quaint cottage on an island close surrounded by the waters of Buzzard Bay

You can set your own pace and relax here!!!

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, to these two beaches. The town beach is about a mile away. If you have a boat, you can launch your boat at Hoppy's Landing within 1/2 mile.

The island is connected by a causeway and has town water and sewer. 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, 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 are provided to bring to the beach.

We have added a new, private outside shower for your use.

The best for last. This cottage is special because it has an 8 x 12 foot screened in porch. It has a table with three chairs, two other chairs, a chaise, and a wooden swing. 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I have been coming to this island for over 40 years. My parents lived here during their retirement years. My husband and I now live here also, just across the street from this rental.

Why the Owner Chose Fairhaven, MA, USA:
We bought this home because of the many happy summers I had at my parent's house.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is quite unique because it has a screened in porch with a comfy swing to watch the sunset in the distance. You can eat out here, relax, or just enjoy some quiet time. At night, the clam lights add to the ambiance of the the place. You will fall in love with this place as we did. Beach around the corner, fire pit in the yard, swing attached to the tree limb, and just summer living. Feel free to contact me directly by calling 5082777983 and I will gladly answer any questions. Thank you.
