Martha’s Vineyard Vacation Rental: Vineyard Haven’s Tashmoo

As you head down State Road out of the center of Vineyard Haven, your car rolls easily down a curving road. Big, old island trees line the road, and then something catches your eye. Off to the left, the trees clear, opening up first to a rolling field of grass and wildflowers and then to a bluer than blue expanse of water. You see two stone jetties closing the loop of rolling blue and then the ocean opens out and free. The view is of Tashmoo Pond a gorgeous loop of water surrounded by private beaches and soft, pale sand.

This week’s featured property sits near Tashmoo and is part of the Tashmoo Wood Condos located just away from the water in a beautiful wooded area with a pool, tennis courts and a private beach. The condo has beds and places around the dinner table for 6 with 3 bedrooms (2 queen beds, 2 twin beds) and 3 full bathrooms. Full of light on the inside, the condo also boasts a spacious deck for lazing in the sun and long, delicious meals in the Vineyard Sun.

For location, it’s hard to beat Tashmoo. You are certainly off the beaten path, surrounded by woods and water. It’s quiet, feels isolated and nature is everywhere you look. However, drive down the long winding dirt road, and you find yourself on State Road – literally two minutes from the Cronig’s grocery store, the movie rental store, miniature golf, and, of course, Main Street in Vineyard Haven and Bunch of Grapes bookstore, the movie theater, the best boutique shopping and incredible food (Zephrus for local, organic vittles and Sweet E’s for real, honest to goodness cupcakes – to name a couple!)

Martha’s Vineyard Vacation Rental: Vineyard Haven country cottage


This country-style cottage sits right on the edge of the quaint hustle and bustle of Vineyard Haven. You’ll be close to everything you’ll need – from groceries to the movie rental store to the hardware store to great restaurants and the charm of Main Street. But, you’ll also be steps away from beautiful conservation lands maintained by the Land Bank commission. Wonderful trails loop for miles and miles through huckleberry and oak forests.

Meanwhile, the inside of the house is cozy and beautiful. Dark wood, beamed and sometimes slanted ceilings accent quilts, a brick fireplace and comfy furnishings. Also, unlike many of the houses that I showcase here that accommodate 8, 10 or even 12 people, this house is made for six with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Don’t forget about the beach! When you stay here, ‘your’ beach is Lambert’s Cove. You’ll get a West Tisbury sticker that gives you access, and you’ll follow a windy sand-filled path up over a dune and onto this stunning beach that overlooks Martha’s Vineyard Sound. Being on the Sound/North side, the waves are usually calm, not really ocean surf, and coca-cola creek (a constant inlet) offers a fantastic place for kids to play, dig and explore.

The beach is 3.5 miles from the house, but it’s one of the most beautiful (though there are so many!) stretches of road on the island – Lambert’s Cove Road. So beautiful, that the short drive to the beach will feel just as pleasurable as the beach itself! Well, close to it anyway!

Vineyard Haven Vacation Rental: Captain’s Home


I simply love this house. It’s got charm, history and location, location, location! Check it out:

Main Street, Vineyard Haven is only three blocks away which means some of the world’s best shopping and restaurants are steps away – not to mention the ferry. You can stroll down for dinner…or grab a cone at Mad Martha’s whenever you want. And you won’t have to worry about parking. What could be better than a morning walk along the harbor followed by coffee and muffins from the Black Dog?


Sleeps 10. Talk about spacious! This kind of big family and friend accommodation isn’t something we usually see downtown, but here it is. From the many bedrooms to the spacious dining table on the back deck.


Don’t forget the beach! This property is one block from Owen Park and its beautiful beach. Built in 1898, Captain Henry Stevenson’s House was, of course, located right by the water – with easy access to his ships and still has gorgeous waterfront views.
