#FeatureFriday: #1256 Weekend Getaway from Boston

Weekend Getaway from Boston

When the sun finally starts to peak from behind the snow clouds, I can’t wait to plan a trip away. The snow loses its charm and turns dirty grey. You want to get away for a short time with your someone special to relax and rejuvenate. When you deal with the 9-5 bustle during the week, sometimes you need a change of scenery to make it to the next week.1256

Massachusetts is one of those unique places where you can be away from it all and not too far away. Sometimes you just need a weekend getaway from Boston. Martha’s Vineyard is just a hop, skip, and jump away from Boston–also known as about an hour’s drive from the ferry.1256

The Steamship Authority allows you many ways to get you across the ocean. You’re able to park in one of their many lots and take a shuttle to the ferry. Or you can schedule a reservation and drive right on and off. If you would rather forget about driving all together, Peter Pan Bus offers a trip from South Station to  the ferry. Just pack a bag and go!1256

This perfect two bedroom, two bathroom retreat overlooks Lagoon Pond in Vineyard Haven. The charming living room makes for a welcome area to relax after a day at the beach. This is  such a wonderful retreat for a couple or two looking to get away from the hustle and bustle from the city. A perfect setting to nurture the mind, body, and spirit.         1256Really, just an adorable, well maintained, immaculate waterfront cottage with an upper and lower deck, outdoor grilling, lovely side and back yards, enclosed outdoor shower, with plenty of parking. And for those that chose to either park on the other side or take the Peter Pan, this rental is a short distance to both the ferry and town.

Inside you will find a retro, yet efficient kitchen, first floor bedroom and private bathroom with access to the back porch. Also an adorable eat in area of the cozy living space which has a serene view of the pond. Upstairs is the king master suite with its own sitting area, deck and bathroom.1256Truly a comfortable Vineyard Haven treasure for a single family or two couples waiting to spend one weekend during the off season, a week during the summer, or the entire summer.1256

Feature Friday #FF: Up-Island Abode

Chilmark Waterview Vacation Rental


Driving down the wooded, rural road to this up-island property you will see the grounds and water views open up to you as you approach. Wonderful yard with lots of space for afternoon picnics, lounging on the patio and cocktails in the evening after a great day on the beach.

When entering the house, you feel the daily stresses and worries melt away. This reverse level home offers large open space on the upper floor with views of Menemsha Pond from most areas on that level. The wooden beams and stonework in the house is reminiscent of a villa in the hills of Italy.


The loft area above creates a cozy feeling in the living room away from the high ceilings in the kitchen and dining area. The large open staircase brings you down to the lower level where one can escape the activity and enjoy a good read or view a bit of television in the lounge area on the lower landing.


Enjoy the privacy of the master suite on one wing with the two guest bedrooms are on the other wing offering a private patio off of the bedrooms and a shared hall bath.


An overall gem of a rental that will create long lasting Martha’s Vineyard memories for you and your guests.
