Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 22, 2014
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

This quaint cottage, nestled in a quiet neighborhood of Oak Bluffs, is perfect for a romantic getaway, a special place to bring your favorite friends, or a wonderful spot to have a family vacation. Some guests also choose to have a solo retreat to read, write, explore, and re-center. Cottage visitors comment on the welcoming feeling they experience as soon as they walk in the door, and the sweet simplicity of this cozy abode.

The Cottage sleeps 4 easily. There is a queen-sized futon on the ground level, and a king-sized sleeping loft. The living area has a comfy cozy futon, TV, DVD player (no cable, but plenty of DVDs and free Wi-Fi), an activity/game drawer, and a portable stereo. The kitchen contains a full-sized stove, microwave, fridge/freezer, and a Keurig machine - so bring your favorite k-cups! There is a washer/dryer for your use as well. There are plenty of towels and linens, so no need to bring your own.

After a full day of exploring, bike riding, shopping, or finding creative inspiration, enjoy a nice dinner or a bottle of wine on the attached deck. It's a perfect place for star gazing too!

There’s plenty to do within walking distance, and a taxi or public transportation can get you to the other Vineyard towns, so a car is not necessary (but it’s nice to have). The Cottage is a mile from Oak Bluffs Center and the town beaches, so a 15 minute walk or a 5 minute bike ride will bring you to either.

Come make this lovely Cottage the heart of your own Vineyard experience!

25th wedding anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5
From the time we got to this adorable cottage in a quiet neighborhood until the time we left EVERYTHING was perfect and accurately described!! Before arriving we laughed that if we could survive a weekend in a 400 sq. ft home we would be married another 25 years!It was roomy,bright and airy(a/c was on upon our arrival but we quickly turned it off and let the fresh air in) The cottage was filled with all the necessities and more (except one thing for a wrinkle freak...Lori assured me the next we visited it would be there!) We have been going to the island for many years but have never stayed in Oak Bluffs. It was easy access to town,main roads and BEACHES! Another first for us was to travel here on the off season. Some restaurants were already closed in OB and vineyard Haven but all was open in Edgartown. On the plus side,beaches were virtually empty,our day trip to Cape Poge was a five min. wait for the ferry(summer can be 1/2hr +) A Menemsha sunset had maybe 40 people scattered on the beach (but our favorite chowder spot was closed),Chilmark chocolates(YUMMY) was only a 5 minute wait outside etc. Lori was always prompt with responses to questions and very accommodating to us. Directions are accurate and getting in the house is easy. Anyone visiting take the time to read the guest journals,in the sun enjoying the deck with a drink. This is my favorite thing to do when we are in a rental. We have saved Lori's beautiful,dollhouse like cottage in our favorites and cannot wait to return to the most perfect spot,MV!!
Lori, thank you,thank you,thank you for opening your home to us and all that vacation here!

I stayed in this cottage with three of my friends for our senior trip after graduation and it was perfect! The house is small, so four (five if tiny) people would be the maximum. Very clean, great location, I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for an adorable getaway!

delightful retreat cottage

  • 5 of 5
this delightful cottage was a wonderful retreat place that promoted our much needed respite from our daily lives! It was as charming, and adorable inside as the pictures online. Everything we needed to make our stay perfect was found inside and the owner was so very helpful and gracious answering my questions about things to do, or explaining anything I asked about our stay.

The cottage was so delightful in its design, and had such lovely whimsical details,and was immaculately clean.

I only wished we could have stayed longer! A truely memorable time for our family...

Clean, cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was PERFECT for our vineyard visit. Lori was professional and hospitable, the cottage was clean & comfortable, and it was very close in proximity to Circuit St. in Oak Bluffs. Within walking distance of Smoke & Bones and Tony's Market. Anderson's Bikes will also deliver to the house. The interior decor is just charming. The washer/dryer and full kitchen were very convenient. We could've stayed for a week or more. This was just right for us and our 3 small children. Lori gave some great recommendations to us and really went the extra mile in helping us feel at home. We will definitely be coming back!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you and your family had such a nice stay....and I can't thank you enough for the homemade card & thoughtful gifts. That was completely unexpected, but so appreciated! Good luck in your new home across the sea, and I'll look forward to having you all back someday soon :-) Lori

Exceeded Expectations! On every possible level!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I came here for our honeymoon and immediately fell in love!This cottage will always have a special place in our hearts, it was the perfect place for our honeymoon.

To begin with, the value of this cottage is amazing! It is so darling, we felt at ease and at home right away. The upper loft is such a cozy place to stay and the bed was so comfortable. Everything was clean and organized and much roomier than what the exterior of the cottage would insinuate.

Lori is such a dream to work with, she left us the sweetest honeymoon gift to welcome us when we got to the cottage, it really started a wonderful week on the right foot. She left us some extremely helpful island guides and menus and we definitely used them. She also took the time to procure us some bikes and helmets had them there at the cottage so we could get around even easier. She is so thoughtful and accommodating to people's needs. Lori is great at communicating!

We can't wait to come back sometime to celebrate our anniversary and I would absolutely recommend any of my friends or family to stay there.

Downtown is just a short walk away and an even shorter bike ride. We were there right before the season began so we felt like we had the whole town and beach to ourselves but we would love to come back during the on season as well.

This last bit is for Lori: Thank you again for everything! It was the perfect setting in every possible way. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality, we wish you nothing but the best and we cant wait to come back:]

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Martha's Vineyard Airport at 6.5 Miles Nearest Barpub : Sharky's Cantina at 1 Miles Nearest Ferry : Steamship Authority or Fast Ferry in Oak Bluffs at 1 Miles Nearest Golf : Farm Neck Golf Club at 2 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Smoke n Bones at 0.2 Miles Nearest Beach : Inkwell Beach at 1 Miles Car: not necessary

This lovely cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood setting, but just a few minutes bike ride to the center of Oak Bluffs and town beaches. A car is nice, but not necessary. There's plenty to do within walking distance in Oak Bluffs, and a bicycle, public transportation, or a taxi can get you to other towns and beaches.

Some of our favorite spots on the Vineyard....For beaches - South Beach!! Great waves and free public access. It's a 15 minute drive from the Cottage. (If you are adventurous, it's a 50-minute bike ride) Inkwell beach is just 1 mile away from the Cottage, and State Beach is just 3 miles away.

After a fun day at the beach, you can head into town for dinner, shopping, or to satisfy your sweet tooth at one of the ice cream shops. Another 'must do' is to try to catch the brass ring on the Flying Horses, the nation's oldest platform carousel. There's also a large arcade that stays open into the night.

Walking through the 'gingerbread houses' behind the stores on Circuit Ave in Oak Bluffs takes you back in time and provides for some amazing photo opps. Be sure to visit the Cottage Museum to see what one looks like inside! There is also a Community Sing in the heart of the cottage campground every Wednesday night at 8:00 pm (in season) - quite an experience!

As far as eating, there are so many great places to go on the island, but these are some of our favorites... Offshore Ale in Oak Bluffs is great for casual dining and home-brewed beer. Sitting on the outdoor patio at Nancy's enjoying fried scallops and clams while looking over the harbor makes for a nice casual evening dinner. If you want a great margarita and a nice Mexican dinner while watching your favorite sports on TV, Sharky's Cantina in Oak Bluffs or Edgartown is the place to go. If you are a BBQ fan, Smoke N Bones (right down the street from the Cottage) has awesome smoked BBQ!! Other favorites - Mocha Motts is a great way to start your day - grab a bagel and a coffee and take a short stroll to the town beach and enjoy your breakfast looking out over the gentle waves...and Back Door Donuts (after hours in back of the bakery - usually open until midnight) is THE place to go for the most amazing, melt-in-your-mouth fresh apple fritters! Oh, and the ice cream shops stay open late at nite in-season, so if you have a sweet tooth, you'll be in good company!

There are so many things to do....Great Rock Bight in Chilmark for a nice hike to a beautiful beach...exploring the cliffs at Aquinnah...bird watching tours...bike trails everywhere...shopping in Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, or Vineyard Haven....the list goes on! Something we try to do before heading out to the island. It's gives a detailed calendar of events (and you can filter by town).

We hope that you are able to come and experience the magic of the Vineyard!!
