Add Martha’s Vineyard to Your Holiday Gift Giving

Do you love the Vineyard?  Do you know someone who loves the Vineyard?  You can now shop Vineyard online!  There are many beautiful gift ideas available at www.thevineyardshopmv.com.  What a great reminder that the summer season is not so far away and Martha’s Vineyard can be enjoyed during the holiday season too!  I especially love the hand painted lighthouse ornaments from the MV Museum.  Not only is it beautifully painted, but it comes in a lovely red box!

It is also a great time to surprise your family with the summer vacation rental plans.  There are so many vineyard vacation rental options available whether for a crowd or just your family.  I like the following rental.  It offers the quiet tranquility of the island with it’s beautiful waterfront location yet, is just minutes to the town center and beaches.  Experience to full vacation experience at your own pace!

Whether large or small the Vineyard need not feel so very far away during the holidays!  Wishing everyone a very Vineyard Holiday.

Martha’s Vineyard Vacation Rental: North Water Street, Edgartown

North Water Street, one of the most historic,  runs along the north side of Edgartown Harbor.  The street is lined with captain’s houses that date back to the whaling days and ends with The Harborview Hotel.

Being the last house prior to the hotel gives the guest of this house the versitillity of enjoying their own private vacation rental with the ability to utilize the restaurant amenities right next door.

Enjoy summer days on the front porch admiring the view of Edgartown Harbor with the Edgartown Lighthouse and beach just steps away.  Don’t like to lounge out front with an open view from the street?  No problem.  Lovely den on the upper level in the back of the house.  Can be used as office or just a quiet reading nook.

This property brings you back to what old Vineyard summers must have felt like (only with upgraded amenities for today’s comforts).  Perfect house for multi-generational family with separate guest accommodations off the back of the house.

Love this property, let me know what you think!

Welcoming the Holidays Edgartown Style

Edgartown Lighthouse at Christmas, by David Welch

Christmas in Edgartown weekend is my favorite way to get into the holiday spirit.  This is the 26th year we have been celebrating the weekend event.  It will be held on December 11-14, 2008.  There are so many activities for everyone!  The weekend is packed to entertain and enthrall adults and children alike.

My favorite event is the Evening of Enchantment at Donaroma’s Nursery just outside Edgartown center.  It is a stunning display that families big and small can enjoy at no charge.  They also offer boxwood tree and wreath decorating session throughout the weekend with a charge for supplies.

The streets of town are decorated, the shop owners welcome visitors with holiday cheer and you can even find some unique and special gifts to tick off your holiday shopping lists.
