ONE BEDROOM COTTAGE MARTHA'S VINEYARD

VERY REASONABLY PRICED!!

GREAT LOCATION

10 min walk to Martha's Vineyard's beautiful State Beach and 5 minute bike ride to Edgartown’s shops and restuarants! Bright sunny cottage, right off Beach RD, adjacent to the Island’s extensive bike path connecting you to the all of Martha's Vineyard's 5 towns and beaches. This location can’t be beat! Perfect for a couple’s easy week at the beach. You won’t be looking for parking, just stroll or bike to the beach in the morning. Miles of wooded trails with water view across the street for a morning walk or jog, then a quick rinse off in the outside shower.

GETTING AROUND

In the evening walk, bike or take the bus to either Oak Bluffs or Edgartown for dinner and nightlife. The bus stop is 50 feet from your front door and comes every 15 min in the summer. There is parking for two cars but many guests don’t even bring a car, you don’t really need one from this location. It's only a 15 minute bus ride from the Oak Bluffs ferry and the bus accommodates bikes.

ROOMS & LAYOUT

The bedroom is a separate room off the kitchen and has a double bed with antiique brass headboard, ceiling fan, dresser and plenty of hooks for clothes, towels etc.. Ample sized eat in kitchen with antique pine table and chairs. Bathroom is accessible from kitchen or bedroom. Living room is off the kitchen and large enough to comfortably accommodate two couches, one of which is a pull out bed. Being on the opposite side of the cottage from the bedroom one could easily take a nap in the bedroom while the other relaxed watching a movie in the living room. Plenty of storage for luggage in huge closet/laundry room off the living room. Cottage is about 800 SQ'.

AMMENITIES

Beautiful pine floors and freshly tiled bathroom. Cable TV, New Blue Ray player, 32 inch flat screen TV and WIFI included.

We finished some great improvements to the cottage's outside space last spring including a new pine fence for privacy, new outside shower and crushed oyster shell BBQ area.

HISTORY

The cottage is part of a complex of buildings which once made up the historic Martha’s Vineyard COOP Dairy. This recently renovated cottage served as it's creamery building. The Martha’s Vineyard COOP Dairy was an operating dairy and milk bottling facility until the mid 1960's. During its hayday, all the island’s farmers brought thier milk to be processed and bottled here. The owners unit was the Dairy’s barn and is behind the cottage on the property.

We are year round residents and would be glad to help out with some tips to make your stay a memorable one.

Have a great summer!

Mike and Sandy

HERE'S A FEW FUN THINGS GOIN' ON NEARBY

BIKING - Great location as a base camp for biking the island. Bring your own bike or easily rent one, bike rental shop is just a 10 minute walk toward town, they also will deliver.

FISHING - Just a 1/2 mile away the bend in the road beach offers some of the best surfcasting on the vineyard, head another 1/2 mile down the road and drop a line off big bridge, great spot for Stripers and Blues.

CLAMMING - Just a ten minute walk is Sengekontacket pond by far one of the very best clamming spots on the Island.

CRABBING - 5 minute walk toward the beach is a colvert where the salt pond rushes under the road. Great spot for catching crabs.

KITE SURFING - Well known for its great windsurfing, Sengekontacket pond is also quickly becoming known as one of the best places in the east coast for kite surfing. Vineyard native, Rob Douglas, earned the title of fastest kite sailor in the world & can be regularly found rippin' it up on Sengekontacket pond.

KAYAKING - On the far side of the State Beach, 10 min by bike, Kayaks can be rented by Island Spirit Kayak. They also offer great day and sunset tours island wide.

BRIDGE JUMPING - One mile down the road, nothing like Jumping off State Beach's big bridge! You'll regularly find kids and adults alike enjoying the 10' plunge into the cool waters of the Vineyard Sound on a hot summer day.

SNORKELING

Nothing like the Caribbean, but the waters here are typically surprisingly clear. Floating around the rock jetties of either of the two bridges along State Beach you can ride the current in or out of Sengekontacket pond. Small fish, conch, starfish, crabs and the occasional Stripped Bass are your quarry. The free ride in the current is worth the effort. After 15 years living here this is still one of my favorites on a hot day!

Great little cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My 2 yorkshire terriers and myself stayed here the last 2 weeks of May. The cottage had everything I needed and Mike and Sandy, the owners were very prompt with any questions I had during my vacation. The house was clean and the fenced in yard came in handy for my dogs. The location was perfect for me since I usually spend most of my time on a bike. Downtown Edgartown is less than a 10 minute ride and the beach less than 5. A preserve and one of many bike paths are right across the street. I totally enjoyed my 2 week stay on Martha's Vineyard and will rent this home again the next time I come to the island.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a great stay! The house is conveniently located, beautiful path across the street that goes through a wildlife preserve and up to State beach. Close enough to walk into Edgartown and just a short drive to Vineyard Haven and Oaks Bluff. We have two dogs and the fenced in yard is such a bonus. The house is clean, has everything you will need The owner Mike is easy to work with, gets right back to you if u have any questions and is very accommodating. Thanks Mike, Ben and Michelle

Very cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Adorable little Bungalo, perfect for the two of us and our dogs. The small fenced in yard was great for the pups. We weathered hurricane Irma here, very cozy when the weather outside wasn't. Great location -- Close to downtown Edgartown and state beach.

Cute! Spacious for two and a dog!

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything it said in the description and more. We went the whole week without a car! The VTA (public transport) was close to cottage, downtown edgartown was a little over a mile (which We walked and rode by bike everyday), and the bike trail and hiking trail access were right across the street. Fabulous! Also this was perfect for our dog because of the fenced in yard. Thank you!

Great place with a fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Cute, clean cottage, exactly what you think of for beach vacation. Only downside is the bed is very small, although it is comfortable. Had a great stay, thanks Mike!
