About Ray Culin

My wife and I manage the woodworking operation of Zepsa Industries in Mamaroneck, NY. We love spending long weekends on the Vineyard where we play golf, kayak, swim, windsurf and enjoy the great restaurants.

Ray Culin purchased this house in 1970

Why Ray Culin chose Vineyard Haven

My Architect father designed the house which is heated by solar energy in the winter. My mother and father built most of it themselves, with reclaimed material found on the Island, after my father retired at 65. My mother is now 95 but we still have her visit for a week or two in the Spring. We are renting the house to keep it as a family retreat for years to come.

We have a caretaker who uses a basement apartment a couple days a week for maintenance purposes. Neil and Lori live off island but are responsible for maintaining the property for guests.

What makes this house unique

The house has a great deck with a beautiful view of the lagoon which is 2 miles long and is perfect for the Sunfish or Kayak/Canoe and Kayaks that are available to renters.

A perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the Vineyard for 45 years and we absolutely loved everything about this house! It was perfect for our small group of 2 couples with an occasional guest on the pullout. The wood detail in the house is beautiful and we spent lots of hours hanging out on the deck enjoying the view. The picnic table pictured has been replaced with more comfortable furniture. The landscaping is perfect so as to allow privacy from the neighbors. Though we didn't use the kayak/beach much, it was nice to have.

The only minor challenge we had is that we don't have a "Vineyard Car" and the dirt road got washed out in a rainstorm and our low slung vehicle bottomed out with each trip up and down. When we return we will rent a jeep or SUV to prevent that! The caretaker occasionally stayed in the apartment below the house but is very nice and assisted us with a few small issues.

A 5 star stay! We'll be back next summer!

Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 5 (kids 8yrs to 18yrs) loved the Lagoon Pond House. Owner and manager were very responsive and the home came with bikes, kayak and everything needed for the stay. The location of the home (down a bumpy dirt road) was peaceful, woodsy (hardly could see the neighbors) and with beautiful views of the cove (it is far more than a mere "lagoon" - beautiful water for swimming and kayaking -- fantastic setting and view). Waking up to that view from the deck and having dinner on it after returning from a day on a beach, was amazing. The home was also in a good location (by car, bike or a jog) to reach Vinyard Haven and a bit further to Oak Bluffs. Could also explore other parts of the Island by car. The home itself was very nice; not fancy but clean and very charming, and the bedrooms were large and the extra pull out bed in the office was good for one of the kids. A great stay.

Second time at Lagoon Pond and planning on returning

  • 5 of 5

So convenient to Vineyard Haven, yet is secluded. Easy beach access for swimming and sailing. House is really well equipped with 3 bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs, sun fish.

We also recommend renting a kayak from Winds Up for the week. Views of Lagoon Pond from most rooms in the house. Deck is roomy and comfortable. Bird watching is very entertaining.

The house is loaded with the owners personal touches. Once you are there, you won't want to leave.

We had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this house a couple of times. As "empty nesters" it is just right for us.

The views are lovely and the owner is very responsive.

A wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the island

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property. The property is as advertised complete with views, beach, and boats to use. It has a very comfortable homey feel. It is centrally located and easy to reach destinations all over the island. The bike path is at the top of the driveway along the road, but you really need a car to truly maximize your enjoyment of the property. Our typical day would start with an island activity and conclude with a swim and sail at the property. We plan on returning next year.
