Estate Home for Family Events


Property Details

Updated: Oct 27, 2016
Down island rural estate home at Malabar Farm in Tisbury very close to town.

The Stoney Hill Road House is located at Malabar Farm, a boutique horse farm catering to dressage lessons and trail riding. The house is a post and beam masterpiece designed in the American craftsman style by critically acclaimed, local architect, Phil Regan of Hutker Architects. Completed in 2009, this 6,500 sf estate home has four formal bedrooms, three full and two half baths, two roll in showers and an outdoor shower. There are also three other rooms with fold out queen couches if your group exceeds eight adults. The primary architectural feature is the 1,000 sf Great Room which was hand crafted of fir, cherry, ash and cypress. The west wall is dominated by a massive stone fireplace and the east wall by a 20 foot long cherry bar which overlooks the chef's kitchen. The north and south walls are adorned by glass affording open views across fields and into the woods. No other houses can be seen from The Stoney Hill Road House.

In addition to super comfortable furniture and beds, the house has a high end whole home audio/video setup with lightning fast cable internet, Direct TV, Apple TVs with NETFLIX, HBO & SHOWTIME. Guests can play their own DIGITAL content over AirPlay. There are two separate TV Rooms and the master bedroom has a full surround sound theater.

There is also a full movie theater and bar that seats 12 comfortably and has a 10 ft diagonal projection screen and 7.4 surround sound audio.

Outside, there are north and south facing patios and the west end of the house has a screened porch for enjoying those beautiful summer nights without any insects. There is over an acre of manicured lawn that your kids of all ages will love.

There are Land Bank walking trails and the island bike paths are accessible from directly from the property, no driving necessary. However, a short drive of under five miles lands you in Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs or Edgartown for shopping, dining or sightseeing.

The Best Ever

  • 5 of 5

The Property, the cooperation, the atmosphere, the amenities were without a doubt the best experience ever.

The Stoney Hill property helped make this wedding event something that will be remembered by every guest.

The house provided us the opportunity for our entire family w/ Grandchildren to stay comfortably under one Awesome roof.

The central location made every attraction only a 10-15 minute commute.

Darren the owner is also very familiar with several vendors /caterers/tent companies etc. that really helped out tremendously.

Very relaxing, very classy.

Besides a great Wedding or Vacation venue, I am considering renting for an executive brainstorming retreat in the upcoming years.

Extraordinary Wedding Site!

  • 5 of 5

We are long-time summer residents on the Vineyard, and our daughter always wanted to have the island as the location for her wedding. The Stoney Hill Road House provided the perfect setting. As lovely as the pictures are on the Home Away website, they do not adequately convey the beauty, serenity and privacy of the house and grounds. The house is exceptional – spacious and appointed with comfortable and luxurious furnishings. Family members had privacy but enjoyed being together throughout the house especially in the enormous downstairs recreation room and the several dens/television rooms. The master bedroom consists of a suite of rooms that provided the space and light for the bridal party to prepare for the wedding.

The special features of the property made it especially suited to meeting the vision my daughter and her fiancé had for their wedding of one location that could be the center of all the activities – from the cocktail hour, through the reception and a brunch the morning after the wedding. The barn provided a magical setting for the reception including a plated dinner and an evening that had all the guests on the dance floor. The wedding guests used words like “enchanted” and “wonderful” to describe the events.

We worked with a number of excellent island vendors starting with our incredible wedding planners, Plan It MV, and Jaime Hamlin catering. The newlyweds live in California but the Vineyard vendors made it possible to plan a wedding with all the details the couple wanted.

We also can’t say enough about how helpful Darren, the owner, is from the beginning of the process until after the celebrations are over. We met with him over a year before the wedding, and he was always prompt in responding to questions and so helpful. Darren can also assist with a list of vendors who are experienced with Vineyard weddings and know his property.

Stoney Hill Road House is a special place to have the perfect Vineyard wedding or for an exceptional, memorable vacation.

Perfect Wedding Venue!

  • 5 of 5

My now husband and I were looking for a venue to host an intimate wedding. We had stopped here to look at the property as a potential venue during one of our vacations and immediately fell in love. The house is secluded and the property is immaculate. Being able to rent the property from Wednesday to Wednesday was perfect. It allowed us to take our time setting up for the wedding and also gave us time to relax after the festivities were over. We invited our bridal party to stay the week with us as a thank you. We had a full house the whole week but never felt overcrowded. The house is gorgeous and I would have been content if we never left the property. We were able to bring in our own vendors which was important to us because we wanted to personalize our wedding as much as we could. We received so many compliments about the wedding and the picturesque location. We had no issues and the owner was very quick to answer any questions we had. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway or a venue that will allow you to make your wedding special, this place is it.

This place is magic.

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time at the Stoney Hill Road House. We had our wedding there in early September and our entire bridal party stayed at the house with us. One of the reasons we chose this place is because you can bring in all your own vendors. It was totally DIY, and we were able to customize our entire wedding day to our liking. We brought in a tent for dinner, had our favorite band play in the barn, and set up all the decorations ourselves. All those personal touches made the day that much more special.

The house and grounds are simply amazing. Right away, it felt like home to us, and our family and friends have not stopped talking about how perfect the house, lawn, grounds, scenery etc are. It was really special.

Darren was helpful and attentive and was the perfect host. He was quick to respond to any questions we had leading up to and during our stay.

Do yourself a favor and book a stay here. Especially if you're looking for an epic DIY wedding.

This place is magic.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely, unbelievably incredible. That's the only way to describe the Stoney Hill Road House. We stayed at the house the second week of September and had our wedding on the lawn and in the barn. It was simply perfect in every way. The sprawling green lawn (ceremony and cocktail hour), the awesome barn (live music & dance party), the gorgeous forest surrounding the property. The house is incredible and we were so sad to leave. But the memories from that week will stay with us forever. Our family and friends still haven't stopped talking about how beautiful the grounds were.

Darren was a very attentive and gracious host. He went out of his way to make sure everything was perfect for us and our guests. We had some technical problems with the projection TV and Darren had a repair guy in the house immediately to get it taken care of.

We can't say enough good things about Darren and the house. We are already thinking about returning next summer. If you want the best wedding week ever, at the best wedding venue ever, do yourself a favor and book this place ASAP.

The Perfect September Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house and property was amazing. Darren was a gracious host, helpful and facilitative in the wedding planning process and also there to make sure things went right with the set up during the days prior. The house itself was immaculate and super clean, gorgeous interior and exterior making it the ideal place to stay. If we had any questions about anything Darren was quick to respond. Our wedding was beautiful and so much of that is because we had such a picturesque venue (the ceremony was on the lawn and reception up at the barn).

The house is also a great location on the Vineyard, very central. Close to the ferries in Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven and a 10 minute drive to Edgartown. Very convenient for my guests and for us to get around the island. Since it's tucked away in the woods you won't hear a car or passer-byers at all. Highly recommend this home for anyone looking to have a more intimate wedding, or just to spend a week in a very tranquil and pretty spot! HUGE thanks to Darren for all of his help and making this amazing place available to us for our special day.
