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!)

Vineyard Haven Rental: The Ultimate Unplug


If you’re looking to really get away this summer, but you don’t actually fancy being in the middle of nowhere, check out this Martha’s Vineyard vacation rental!


Don’t be an island, be a peninsula. This house has water on three sides – as it looks out into Vineyard Sound, Herring Creek and Lake Tashmoo. You’ll be right on the cusp of the Lake’s stone jetty one of the sweetest beaches on the island. The sand is almost white, warm and soft underfoot and the waves are almost non-existent most days. Not only do you have your own private barrier beach 25 feet from your door, the house also comes with it’s own boat mooring – cruise the lake or take your vessel right out into the Sound and beyond…


So close, but still far away. The Tashmoo Pond area is found at the end of a classic Vineyard dirt road and it’s certainly off the beaten path, but the beginning of that tree-filled dirt road is good old State Road, at a juncture about 2 minutes from the grocery store and 5 minutes from Main Street, Vineyard Haven. So, you’ll feel like you’re in a remote island paradise, but civilization is close by.


Don’t forget about the house! It sleeps 6 and features a big open floor plan and tons of Island sunlight. You’ll likely spend just as much time inside as out and that’ll be easy with a wrap-around back and side deck. All that’s left for you to do – besides calling me to book the house – is to plan what you’ll have for your first dinner under the Vineyard sunset.
