With access to beautiful Lambert's Cove Beach, and up against 4000 acres of state forest., this very private house immerses you in the best that nature can offer. The house has cathedral ceilings and a two story glass wall. Great for families or couples. 5+ Days only. (Five Star rating on other sites)
This centrally located glassed-in house in the woods is a 15 minute drive or less to nearly anywhere on Martha's Vineyard. It is located in the middle of our 2 acres of woods on a paved road. Permits to two beautiful beaches are available: Lambert's Cove Beach on the north side of the island and Long Beach on the south side.
The house is designed so that the summer sun is kept out despite having a two story wall of glass in the main sitting area of the house. The effect is that your eyes naturally drift off into the woods, where you come to recognize various birds and where they live. It is very peaceful. The screened-in porch is a favorite for reading and bird watching. Two patios, a table on the porch, a kitchen bar, and a regular sit-down table in the house provide many dining options. There is a fully equipped, chef's kitchen, 1.5 bathrooms, and an additional private semi-outdoor shower.
The house is less than five minute's walk to the 4000 acre State Forest with bike paths connecting to all other bike paths on the island. Nearby places to bike (mostly on paths) include the State Forest, the YMCA, Vineyard Youth Tennis, West Tisbury school playground and town tennis courts, Alley's and the Field Gallery. A bit further along are Long Beach, Lambert's Cove Beach and the town of Vineyard Haven. A 2 minute walk takes the kids to a terrific neighborhood baseball diamond, and a 10 minute bike ride gets you to a frisbi golf course in the State Forest.
We may allow a dog. The area is perfect for it, with the State Forest next door. Please inquire.
We spend a lot of time aboard our sailboat 'Aurora' in Vineyard Haven Harbor during the summer. We will normally be available by cell phone should the renter require anything.
House, herb garden, and woods. Also pick up a beach pass for Lambert's Cove beach and enjoy one of the best limited access beaches on the island.
Other things to note:
West Tisbury has a beautiful "residence only" private beach that is available to renters called Lambert's Cove Beach. Renters may acquire their own beach pass, for a fee, at a shack at the West Tisbury School. (Left, down Old County Road about 1 mile.)
The state forest is practically on the edge of the property. Walk there with your dog and do a loop.
There is also a baseball field that you may use just down the road, 5 minutes walk.

This is a sweet house with a cabin-in-the-woods feel to it. It is on a paved, residential road, and set back enough to feel safe and private. We were a family group of 6 adults, one child, and a small dog and the compact space was comfortable for all of us. The soaring windows in the main room give the whole house an open feeling. Alice was very responsive to our questions. Because we were there early in the season the gardens around the house were just starting to come to life and had several inviting cozy areas to sit and relax. It is located centrally making travel to all the towns and beaches within easy reach, and having a car is preferable.
