About Lynn Hallen
We have enjoyed the Vineyard for years and are pleased to share our home with you. The beauty and serenity of the surroundings and beach always brings me a sense of peace.
Lynn Hallen purchased this House in 1998
Why Lynn Hallen chose Vineyard Haven
The Vineyard has always been a magical place for us. The Island is incredibly beautiful and filled with things to do. Our house gives you the serenity of the Island with a location close to restaurants and activities. The private association beach makes it easy with children and the house will easily accommodate extended family or friends
What makes this House unique
You can relax on the porch, walk to the beach or play games on the lawn. Trails to walk on, and in the right season, blueberries to pick. enjoy the quiet being in the country brings with the convenience of being near town

Beautiful House in Great Location
House was spacious, clean, and fully equipped with everything we needed. Location was the best of both worlds, being not too far from Vineyard Haven or Oak Bluffs, while secluded enough for peaceful enjoyment of the surrounding woods and beach.
Beautiful home and wonderful location
This is our fourth year staying here and it is a lovely home with a quick walk to a serene beach. It feels so private and serene but a quick ride to vineyard haven.
We spent a week with another family in this lovely house. It's huge, with an amazing covered wrap around porch, lots of comfy places to lounge, and a fully stocked kitchen (we joked there must have been 4 households' worth of dishes and utensils in that kitchen!) it's really quiet and private in the middle of the woods, perfect central location to reach different parts of the island, and a 2 minute walk to a small beach (which made it possible to go to the beach more then once a day). We drove to some of the nicer beaches earlier in the day, then would have "happy hour" and watch the sunset on our private beach :). Our kids liked the private beach for shell collecting and sand castles-- there were a lot of stones on the beach, so maybe not the best for swimming/ wading (though one of the neighbors said the beach changes every year and the stones were just due to a storm earlier in the summer). Great house for kids (we had two toddlers and a 5 year old between the 2 families). They have beach chairs, an umbrella and even some sand toys. You will need to bring or rent linens, but they do have tons of beach towels you can use (and dish towels etc for the kitchen)
Thank you so much for your nice review. The neighbor is right, the beach changes depending on what the storms have been or which way the wind blows! So glad you enjoyed your stay
Quiet and comfortable
This summer was the first time in over 12 years we had rented on this part of the island. Over that time, we had grown accustomed to the increasing traffic and crowds that came with the more popular locations. Well, what a pleasant surprise it was to be removed from all of that; yes, we could still drive to Edgartown/Oak Bluffs/Vineyard Haven areas when we felt the need, but it was great not to have to deal with the traffic and rush on a daily basis. The house itself was wonderfully roomy with a floor plan that allowed for space and comfort for our family of 10. It had all the necessities plus (wrap-around porch, outdoor shower, TV room in addition to living area, large dining table to accommodate 10, comfortable master bed) and its proximity to a small beach was an added bonus (although the beach was not ideal for swimming/sunbathing because of the accumulation of sea weed on the shore, it was nice to watch the sunset from there). As much as we enjoyed the tranquility of the location, there is something to be said about the deeply rutted drive way (which is at the end of a long, unpaved road). While we understand the dirt road leading into the area is typical of MV secondary roads, some improvement in the property's drive-way off this secondary road would go a long way in making the trips to/from the house much more pleasant. All in all, very comfortable, had everything we needed, clean and quiet. Definitely would return.
I am glad you enjoyed the house. I am sorry about the rutted driveway. We work on it every off season, but especially in rainy seasons, it gets ahead of us. We will work on it again this fall and hopefully get a better solution. Thanks for the feedback. The more we know about problems, the more able we are to address them
We spent a wonderful week in this secluded sanctuary. The drive to the house along the dirt road was an adventure as were truly surprised to see just how tucked away the house was. The house is beautifully laid out and has everything and then some that you will need to feel at home. We stayed during very hot weather, but the fans were perfect. The walk to the private beach wasn't long at all and the beach itself was a delight. Our only regret was not utilizing the beach enough. The owner was always available to answer all of my questions. We enjoyed going out to tour the island and coming back to our peaceful home away from home. If you truly want to get away from it all, this is your place!
We could not have found a better home for our first time staying on Martha's Vineyard. We were in town for a wedding and our only regret was that we were not able to stay longer. The house is beautiful, clean, and comfortable. The setting is peaceful and private. And that porch is awesome!! We spent as much time as we could
just sitting out there and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. The owner is very nice as well.
We hope that we will be able to come back and stay for a longer time.
Thank you so much for the lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed the house as much as we do. The porch is really the bestM
