About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Historic home in Edgartown, full of old charm. Wonderful location to walk to shops and dining, Fuller beach, the lighthouse, Church St. bus station, or just enjoy the private backyard. This location allows you to enjoy your stay without having to have a car.

The home has a full kitchen, dining room, living room, sitting room, bedroom with a double bed, and bathroom with shower stall on the first floor. Cable and internet is provided. The second floor has 3 bedrooms; one with twin beds, one with queen bed, and another with a double bed. There is a full bath on the second floor. We suggest that you arrange linen service in advance of your stay. Takemmy Linen Rental is very reliable (508-693-2788).

There are window air conditioner units on the first and second floor for the hot or humid days. Baseboard heat is available throughout the house.

Off the kitchen in the back of the house is a deck with outdoor seating and a grill. The yard is good size for Edgartown proper - big enough for a game of catch!

If you plan to bring a car in the summer months, be sure to book your reservations with the MV Steamship Authority as summer auto reservations fill quickly.

Family grew up here or enjoyed summers visiting family here.

What makes this house unique

It's an old home. Was it really built in 1776? We have not been able to trace records that far but certainly there are homes in the area of this time frame. Nana always claimed that the house was 4 years older than the house across the street (1780).

The house has much of the old charm but we are continually doing upgrades to make it more attractive.

It's location is great and it has some historic charm.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Edgartown. The house is in the perfect location and you can walk everywhere; beach, lighthouse, downtown, island bus system. The back yard is huge and fenced in so you have privacy. The home itself is much larger than it appears to be in the photos with sleeping quarters on both levels. If you are looking for high amenities and fancy living this isn't the right home but if you are looking for a clean house, charm, great location, warm and inviting home with everything you may need this is the place. Next time we are on the island we will be staying here.

Comfortable home, wonderful stay, lots of history, location is unparalleled

  • 5 of 5

Pam Spear's home was wonderful to stay at and she was very easy to work with. It was very comfortable house with plenty of room and easy to entertain in. You absolutely cannot beat the location, which is about a 2 min walk to downtown historic Edgartown. We had a wonderful time over Labor Day weekend and look forward to hopefully staying at this great home again!
