With the weather finally turning towards the better, it seems like more and more boats are slowly trickling into the harbors. People are prepping for the season, and I can’t wait to get my boat ready as well. Boating is a large part of the lifestyle here on Martha’s Vineyard, and luckily you don’t have to know someone in order to take advantage of that. There are so many different programs & businesses on Martha’s Vineyard, that finding a way to get out on the water is a breeze.
If you’re looking for some excitement on the high seas, sport fishing is the way to go. We recommend Smokin Eel Charters, or Larry’s Tackle Shop Charters. These two Captains have been fishing these waters for 30+ years, and know the island’s best fishing spots.
If you’re looking for a family day out on the water sailing, call the people over on the schooner Ishmael at 617-355-8610.
Would you like your children to learn how to sail? Check out Sail MV. They have an amazing sailing program for sailors at every level of sailing.
If you are looking for something else out on the water, please give us a call. With so many connections throughout the Island, we can help make your summer dreams a reality.
Chappy Charm at its best! This is a quintessential beach “cottage” with stunning views overlooking the Edgartown outer harbor and lighthouse, just steps away from your own private beach. The history of the property begins with “Menaca” which is Wampanoag for “Head of Land”. This house was first erected around 1885 in Katama as a guest house near the Mattakeeset Lodge. Jimmy Chadwick, an Edgartown entrepreneur, purchased the property and also established the Chappy Beach Club. The house was taken apart after the boards were numbered, transported around to the beach on a barge, and reassembled on the current site in 1910. The numbering can still be seen in the upstairs bedrooms and in most closets. As you approach the house, you cross the harbor on the Chappy ferry, a short distance down the Chappy Road to Caleb Pond Lane, you go up the hill, through a picturesque meadow on either side, to the sweeping views of the harbor usually dotted with lovely yachts. Inside the house you will find top to bottom tastefully and cheerfully decorated and painted interior with many original antiques. On the first floor, there is a full kitchen, charming pantry, laundry room, bath, dining room with a beautiful Venetian chandelier, living room with fireplace, t.v. room and a bedroom with fantastic ocean views.
In addition, there is a large screened in porch, perfect for dining and admiring the truly extraordinary view, day and nighttime when the lights of Edgartown and the lighthouse are visible. On the second floor, there are 5 bedrooms each with its own character, (one with a screened in porch), a half bath, and most rooms have a water view. There’s plenty of room on this 3 acre property for outdoor games, exploring, patio dining, parking and for your enjoyment. There is a private outdoor shower, and it is an easy bike ride or a 10 minute walk to the Chappy ferry. Come to make your own family memories on Martha’s Vineyard in this wonderful and unique house that gives a nod to history and has been owned by the same family for generations!
