Renovated 1830's historic house on private lane. Sunny, beautiful, rambling backyard for playing and entertaining. Steps from Sheriff's Meadow pond and sanctuary and 5 min. walk to downtown shops, restaurants, boat landing; fuller st. beach 10 min.

Der Wohnraum

The house is a wonderful mix of town and country, privacy and convenience. It is airy and light, with large beautiful windows and an easy indoor-outdoor feel. It's ideal for a couple with 1-3 children. The peaceful and secluded backyard is perfect for grilling and entertaining. Originally the house is where the ice cutter for Sheriff's pond and his goats lived. At the end of a dead-end lane, it's a wonderful summer retreat. The walking trail around the pond begins where the lane ends, and from there you can take a back trail to Eel Pond, and across to Fuller Street Beach. It is a short walk to town and a short drive or bike to multiple beaches.

This is summering in Edgartown as it was in the 70s, or when your grandparents came here. Beach plums and bare feet and bathing suits drying on the line, cocktails and dinner in the backyard. It is carefree and happy as long as it is what you are expecting.

This is not a house with all contemporary amenities. If you are looking for central air and en suite bathrooms this might not be the best fit for you. The house is an antique with an upstairs floorplan to match: the master bedroom is just under 200 sq ft. The bedrooms upstairs share one bathroom and the front bedroom is accessed through the master bedroom, while the back bedroom can be accessed through the bathroom or through the master bedroom.

The house is perfect for a couple with children, including a nanny; or for a couple and a friend in the downstairs bedroom. It is tight for two couples, as the downstairs double is a cubby bed. Please consider this before booking! Additionally, during the busy summer season arrivals and departures are on the weekends.

Location, location, location. It's three blocks to downtown Edgartown from the front door. You pay for that, of course. But you can't beat the convenience. The house was well-prepared for our arrival, with a thorough cleaning being finished up just as we pulled in. There are some great amenities. The hosts are clearly avid readers and left an enormous selection of interesting books. There's a lot of original art on the walls. The kitchen is well-stocked with some quality cookware. When we saw "renovated" in the description, we expected more of the accessories to be up to date. Much of the house is very old. The windows aren't double-hung and need to be propped open. The floors slope badly in spots. The bathroom is small and the tub is tiny. The indoor shower is so small that we showered outdoors all week. We also had an ant problem during our entire stay. None of these were big issues, but they contributed to an experience that was somewhat less than what we had hoped for. Our hosts were great about communicating and leaving instructions, and the caretaker, James, was on the spot when we called him. If you love antiques, then this is the house for you.

A lovely home suited for families with kids (our 11 and 14 year old loved their rooms) and we appreciated the layout of this antique cottage. The location is such that you can send your (older) children out to explore the harbor or the pond or a bike ride to the lighthouse. The linens on the beds were amazing - super soft and clean! Lots of great artwork in the house too. Alex and Allan were very responsive in the days leading up to our stay when we had many questions.

My wife, daughter, her best friend and I spent 5 nights at this wonderful home on a secluded street 5 minutes walk to downtown, docks, restaurants, bikes, buses if needed. Great location! Fully equipped kitchen and outdoor grill perfect. We all utilized the wonderful outdoor shower. Water is always hot and pressure is fantastic. Beds are very comfortable. Five nights of perfect sleep. My wife and I started our day with freshly brewed coffee and a walk to Seriffs pond right out the door and down the secluded street. Just a perfect start to the day. Never needed air conditioner- lots of windows let in the breeze at night. The house is great for a couple and worked for my daughter and friend as they slept in the first floor bedroom. House would also work for a family with one or two small kids as upstairs bedrooms have an adjacent layout. The owners description is accurate and they are careful to be sure their house will work for you. We all loved staying there.

Daryl, Hello! I Hope you had a really nice week on MV. I just wanted to point out that at the time you requested a booking I said I wanted to make sure you had read the full house description because we wanted to make sure it would suit you. In it, we fully disclose the antique floor plan, small size, and overall retro 1950s old summer cottage vibe. If you look over our message history you will see that this is the case. We try at all costs never to rent to people with conflicting expectations. It sounds like you were disappointed, and we are genuinely sorry but not at all to blame. Best, Alexandra Best, Alexandra

This cabin was the perfect place for our week in Martha's Vineyard. The absolute best feature is its prime location - 5 to 10 minutes from the waterfront, restaurants, shops, and bus stop, which will conveniently take you anywhere else on the island you'd like to explore. The cabin is charming and rustic, very spacious, very clean, and is fully stocked with anything you may need. Having two bathrooms was especially convenient, with great water pressure and lots of hot water! The owners are always available to answer any questions to ensure we had a trouble-free stay. We definitely recommend this cabin if you're visiting Martha's Vineyard.

We really enjoy traveling and exploring together -- mountains, cities, running, reading -- and Airbnb has allowed us to stay in amazing places and meet wonderful people. We are now very happy to list our own house on Martha's Vineyard and our studio building in western Massachusetts through Airbnb. We hope some of you out there will find them friendly and beautiful spots for your vacation or artistic escape!
