Bedrooms: 6. Bathrooms: 2
Charming well-maintained East Chop waterview Victorian near beaches and Oak Bluffs. House overlooks woods on one side and Nantucket Sound and sunrise over the water on the other. This former Methodist Campground house was moved to its present location over 120 years ago and has been expanded to sleep 10. There are six bedrooms and a queen bedroom is on the first floor, convenient for grandma and grandpa while the rest of the crowd sleeps in the 5 bedrooms upstairs. Rooms include: (1st floor) living room, dining room, enclosed sunporch, kitchen, pantry, queen bedroom, full bath with tiled shower/tub & heated tile floor, covered wrap-around victorian porch with swing, and open deck with BBQ area. The upper floor has 5 bedrooms, a bathroom & laundry room. After returning from the beach, a private outside shower and change area is in a sunny area in the afternoon. The house is in a wooded area with no nearby busy streets or traffic, and is only a short walk to the public Jetty Beach, the East Chop Beach & Yacht Clubs, the harbor's boat ramp and town.
The house is very well equipped and has been kept up-to -date with new appliances and a new bathroom in the last 5 years. There are new windows & roof and the house lends itself to wonderful vacations and relaxation. The wraparound porch is great for breakfast and to get out of the sun, while the deck is a perfect spot to soak in the afternoon rays and to use for a small cocktail party and for dinner with the grill. All you need to bring is your food, your toys, and your vacation spirit.

What a great time - A houseful of tri-family fun, fabulous food, sand between the toes, tired biking legs, windy swims and salt-air-sleeps... thank you. Save a spot for another year.
Thank you so much for sharing this charming home. We had a beautiful time waking up to see the sunrise and enjoying the comforts of this cozy cottage. It was my parents first time on the island and they have fallen in love. This is the first time the three of us have ever been on a trip together, because my brothers couldn't make it. What a great place to hang out being an only child! Despite having to leave early due to hurricane Irene, we will recall this trip fondly with much love and anticipation to return. Best to you and your family.
Great place to spend a family vacation on the Vineyard. This is very convenient to Oak Bluffs as we always walked into town even with a 2 yr old. The close beach is small but really convenient and great for watching the boat traffic coming into the harbor. State Beach is a short bike or car trip away if you like long walks on the beach and no matter what time of day has available parking even in July /August. The house is spacious and the 2 decks provide great places to sit outside whether your a sun lover or a shade lover(me), you'll find a great place to relax. In the description of this house it says that it fully equiped and in my opinion it is definitely true(esp in the kitchen). Bring bikes-Martha's Vineyard is very bike accomodating with many dedicated bike/walking trails. When I return to the Vineyard I will definely look to see if this place is available.
Thank you for allowing us to share in the "cottage" here on MV. This was sort of the "last hurrah" before my oldest daughter & family move to Germany for 3 years. 10 of us in all & we had a great time; swam, grilled, walked & ran, explored and relaxed. Several jumped off of the 2nd bridge and have the T-shirts to prove it! We visited the gorgeous W. Tisbury beach twice, went on a schooner ride, ate out and cooked in. Saw a shark being cut up (700 lb Mako caught 2 days before the shark competition) and grilled up fresh shark for dinner, because they gave so much away. Marveled at the sunset. I could go on...Thank you!
We enjoy our time at Ted's each year and don't take it for granted. Enjoy...laugh...do all that the days allow... and believe!
Thank you for your lovely home which easily accomodates a large family as we continue to discover this beautiful island!
My family loves this house. We've rented a number of different places over the years but when we found this spot we knew we could stop looking. It is perfect; clean spacious, well equipped, close to town and peaceful. The kids love the back porch swing and the adults love to sit out there with their morning coffee and after beach cocktails. Jetty Beach at the end of the road(2 minute walk) is convenient or you can drive to any number of other beaches around the island. Each one is special in its own way. We have enjoyed many family dinners and lively board games around the long dining room table. There is ample room for all of us without having to eat in shifts. There are enough bedrooms to accommodate a large family. Pillows and blankets are provided. Each room has a fan although there is usually a breeze. The house is close to the center of Oak Bluffs( about a ten minute walk) but so secluded and quiet you'd never know the town was so close. We love it here and would recommend this house to others.
Ted - This was a wonderful week! We enjoyed our first visit to Martha's Vineyard and your charming home.
As first timers we have only accolades for the cottage, neighborhood and island. For six friends celebrating a "major" birthday and friendships, no trip could have been more fulfilling. Hope to have future stays on MV and coming from Chicago, it is worth the trip. Many thanks.
First time out for all of us. Fantastic island, great memories, wonderful weather and spectacular accommodations! Thank you very much!
Spent a beautiful June week. Our niece, her children and our two daughters made it perfect. Hope to so it again. Enjoyed your beautiful house.
The entire week was spent laughing on the deck, swimming in the Atlantic and enjoying the comforts of this magnificent home. Thanks for keeping it in fine condition for us to enjoy!
My first trip to MV was all I imagined it would be and your house was part of the experience. The history of this home is everywhere you look and I feel our family has added a page (literally!) My kids are on the door. We'll see you next year!
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of driving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "Woo Hoo, what a ride". Pretty much sums up our girls' weekend. Thanks for the vessel and the coziness! We'll be baaaack!!
