Welcome to my home, a 200 year-old former whaling captain's home in the heart of historic Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard (not Nantucket). From here, every amenity - shops, beaches, harbor, restaurants, and night life - is accessible by foot or bicycle. No car needed.
***IMPORTANT***the price listed is for the main double guest room that has one queen-sized bed. There is an additional charge for the second, single room ($75). To book two separate beds you must specify 3 people in your party.

Prostor
This house is my childhood home, to which I returned to live full time in 2012. I have spent the past four years lovingly restoring this old house - painting and repairing every room with my own hands. The house was built in the early 1800s, about two miles out of town, by Captain Alexander Palmer Weeks. It was moved to its in-town location in the mid 1930s by a team of forty yoke of oxen.
Here is the story of the house move:
May Snowstorm That Took an Unkind Turn (from a 1948 edition of the Vineyard Gazette)

The cold May storm, a proverbial part of the Vineyard spring, took an especially unkind turn about a century ago, on May 26th, the date being recalled because it coincided with moving day for an old house which found a haven on Main Street, Edgartown.

The house, then owned by Capt. Alexander Weeks, once stood at Ocean Heights, but yielding to that irresistible urge which seemed to overtake both houses and their owners in the olden days, it was decreed that it should become a town dweller. Propelled by forty yoke of oxen and a large force of men, the house made its slow and stately way over the sandy roads until it reached its present site, on the corner of Green Lane, where it is now the home of Mrs. Herbert M. Boylston.

"The usual barrel of New England liquid refreshments as was the custom in those halcyon days," the Gazette recalled wistfully a quarter of a century ago, "flowed freely and when spirits rose to the point that when the new location was reached it was decided to hold a dance then and there. A fiddler was procured, fair ladies recruited, and the evening passed all too swiftly, the home-going guests finding to their surprise that a heavy snow had fallen while they were celebrating and that many of the weary and hungry oxen had dispersed, leading to a chilly chase on the night of the great snow, before the beasts were stabled and their masters housed."

(More information about Captain Alexander Palmer Weeks, from my mother's files, includes the facts that he was born on May 18, 1804 and died on August 29 or 30, 1856, lost at sea in a hurricane, and that in 1835 Captain Weeks was skipper of the ship Leader whose home port was New Bedford. I have also learned - from the National Maritime Digital Library - that Leader, a whaling bark, with Captain Weeks listed as its master, departed New Bedford for the Pacific Ocean in May of 1835, and returned in April of 1838, reporting 480 sperm, and 138 whale. Leader is listed as having been built in 1815 in Fairhaven, and that she broke up in 1851.)

***IMPORTANT*** the price listed is for the main double guest room that has one queen-sized bed. There is an additional charge for the second, single room ($75). To book two separate beds you must specify 3 people in your party.
This house is also home to a small photo gallery and is the setting for occasional music and song jams. Guests are always invited to attend and/or participate in these gatherings. I have five young grandchildren and they are often on the premises, so if young children are not your cup of tea, this is probably not the place for you (on the other hand, if you are traveling with children, please do ask about my overflow options as this is a very child-friendly home).
Also, as noted, this is a 200 year-old house. If you are expecting modern, fancy, and fluffy, you will be disappointed - clean, orderly, friendly, convenient, historic, and interesting, yes - but by no means, fancy.
Please note that I do not provide parking on the premises but there are two free parking lots nearby - one is 1/2 mile away with shuttle service into town, the other is around the corner at the Edgartown School.

Edgartown, Massachusetts, Sjedinjene Američke Države

I am in the heart of historic downtown Edgartown - two blocks from Edgartown's historic center with its multitude of shops and restaurants; four blocks from Edgartown Harbor, with two beaches within walking distance, and two miles from the best family swimming beach on the planet: Bend in the Road Beach (aka State Beach), and three miles from South Beach - all accessible via bike paths and public transportation. While my home is convenient to every amenity by foot, the trade-off is, especially during July and August, it's a busy, in-town neighborhood and not everyone's cup of tea. I don't get too many complaints, however. Most of my guests are charmed by it all.
