Vineyard Haven is one of the 3 main 'down-island' towns, all of which have a Main St with restaurants, shops, grocery stores, cinema, banks, etc. The other 3 'up-island' towns are primarily rural. Vineyard Haven is the most year-round of the towns and is where the main ferry terminal is located. Sparrow Cottage is 1 mi north of the center of town in an older, wealthier area called West Chop.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Dana's a fine woodworker by trade, and an avid sailor, with a 34' Morgan sailboat moored in Vineyard Haven Harbor. Caron likes vegetable and flower gardening, book sales, architecture. We travel a lot ourselves and are comfortable with people all over the world.

Why the Owner Chose Vineyard Haven, MA, USA:
Martha's Vineyard is a safe, old- fashioned, authentic place without highways, neon signs, fast-food restaurants, large discount stores, shopping malls, or acres of parking lots. The 45 minute ferry transports you to a simpler place where people still enjoy village shopping, local agriculture, fishing, hiking, beaches. Yes, there are billionaires doing all these things too, but on MV we all look the same.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Like having your own place on the Vineyard. Clean, comfortable, and you're on your own. Easy location to find and to go anywhere on the island with shuttle bus service in front. Walk downtown to the harbor, the beach, cinema and Main St shops. Lectures, events, films, gallery openings, antiques shows all over the island, listed each week in the MVTimes newspaper.
