A distinctive home--situated on the Vineyard Haven/West Tisbury line, well off the main road and in a dell surrounded by oaks and wild blueberries—the house offers a second floor with a separate entrance to two spacious bedrooms (each with twin beds), large bathroom with tub and shower, and book-filled sitting area. [You are looking at green bedroom; separate listing for blue bedroom.]
A sleeping porch with a net-covered double bed, sofa and chairs is available for those preferring romantic outdoor sleeping arrangements or just a cool spot to listen to the birdsong. A great place also for sipping wine or reading in the rain (Website hidden by Airbnb) All windows look out onto exuberant gardens. There are several patio areas which provide peaceful spots to read, converse or simply dream.
The building combines classic New England shingles with Mediterranean spaces and is filled with architectural salvage, antiques and handcraft acquired while living abroad.
This is a spot for those preferring to avoid the hubbub of an in-town location but not so remote as to require a half hour drive to the movies or the store. Great writer’s retreat. It is an easy bike ride into Vineyard Haven; and public transportation, which goes all over the island (and carries bicycles), is an 10-minute walk away. The bus from Vineyard Haven to West Tisbury operates hourly. Walking trails in one of the Vineyard’s many conservation areas are close by.
Beach towels and chairs available. Outdoor shower for après-beach. Continental breakfast and Wi-Fi available.
Check in time is 4-6pm unless other arrangements are made.
