Property Description

The open land around Tisbury Great Pond is exceptional. It’s low, wide, and alive with wildlife, and the sound of surf rolls in across the landscape. It’s a different climate within a mile of the ocean. The pond offers an endless supply of activities & places to explore. The ocean beach at “the cut” is the best. Our small summer “camp” as they used to be called, sits on 3.7 acres of mostly untouched land; nature unimproved! There are decks on three sides of the house; you look south over Middle Point Cove, across Long Point to the ocean. On the other side of the Middle Point, you look west across the main pond to South Beach, Chilmark, and the layered hills up-island. The sun on the land brings a distinctive smell of berry bushes, which moves, gently through the house. This is a place to reconnect, and be at peace. Everything else that makes a great Vineyard vacation is not far away.

House: We are off grid so there is not regular house current, no electrical appliances and no cable/TV. see Amenities, Notes.

The house is a pretty open plan, the living room and dining room are open to the roof. You can see up into the loft which covers the two bedrooms, bath and kitchen. There are three big, 45' wide, doors that mostly stay open in nice weather latched to the outside of the house.

Yard: Besides the decks on three sides of the house, there's a yard and an area with a vegetable / herb garden and the outdoor solar shower. The rest of the property is a mix of native huckleberry, blueberry, choke cherry, cedar, scrub oak, with accents of poison ivy! You'll see ospreys, swans, hawks, geese, and many smaller birds. You may see deer, otters, raccoons, etc if you're up early. There are fresh deer tracks on the dirt road almost every day.

Pond: Tisbury Great Pond is one of the largest ponds on the island, about a mile across, and 2+ miles up some of the coves. Deep Bottom Cove is like a river at the upper end with small camps along the water. Out at the beach, there are extensive sand flats to play on, the water is warm and shallow for little ones, and there's body surfing on the ocean side. If 'the cut' is open, you can ride in, or out, depending on which way the tide is going; magical.

Indelibly Wonderful Place

Rent this if you want a Vineyard place that has the real feeling of the island. I have been there 4 or 5 times, and I hesitate to submit a review because I like the idea of it being just mine, but that’s not reality. So… to the place itself: it has always been spotlessly maintained, and the responsive and friendly owner comes from generations of V... Read More

Amazing Vineyard rental!

Up island on the Tisbury Great Pond, this is one of those hidden gems that people keep coming back to year after year. We have been coming here for five years. Some of the things that keep us coming back? Waking up to the tranquil sounds of nature, drinking coffee on the deck overlooking the salt-water ponds, walking or kayaking to the barrier beac...
