Waterfront House and Guest House on Tisbury Great Pond.
Accommodations: Four bedrooms, three baths (sleeps eight)
Boat to one of the best private beaches on the Vineyard and enjoy the Vineyard the way it used to be at our waterfront family home. The property, which is surrounded by a 180-acre farm owned by an old Vineyard family, is on the waterfront of Tisbury Great Pond. The main house, Pastime Hall, which is located directly on the water, was originally a lodge used for square dances and community gatherings. It features a knotty pine great room with huge stone fireplace and new, comfortable furnishings.
The main house has one large master (queen bed) bedroom, full bath, fully-equipped kitchen, and an outdoor shower. A large wrap-around deck has gorgeous views up Pear Tree Cove toward Quansoo Beach. The deck is furnished with a teak dining table (with umbrella), chairs, bench and steamer chairs. A two-bedroom GUEST HOUSE, located a stone’s throw away on the two and a half acre property, has two bedrooms (one with queen bed and one with twin beds), living room, complete kitchen and dining area plus its own yard, deck, outdoor shower, pond view, and telephone line. A private, third bedroom suite with twin trundle beds, full bath, half kitchen, and a small private deck is adjacent to the garage. Herb garden, blueberry bushes and flower garden on property. Ideal for a family with older children or two/three couples.
The house has its own dock. Use of a Lund motor boat with ten horsepower motor, canoe and single kayak are available for an additional fee. Beach pass and key with private parking rights allows access to private stretch of Quansoo Beach. Another private stretch of beach is a 10-minute motor boat ride (or paddle) across beautiful Tisbury Great Pond. Alley’s General store and West Tisbury are a five-minute drive up a dirt road; the airport is ten minutes away. West Tisbury renters can also get tennis court passes and reservations, and parking passes for Lambert's Cove, one of the Vineyard's most beautiful sound beaches.
