Le logement

The Cottages on Flat Bottom Pond are a wonderful escape on the spectacular island of Martha's Vineyard. These architectural cottages are located in the Lambert's Cove area of the Vineyard. The unique hand-made quality of the main house's construction 50 years ago has been recently updated with a more minimalist and clean design. The spaces are open and light with a focus on the outdoors and views of the vernal pond behind the house. The main house has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and an outdoor shower. There is a beachstone fireplace in the master bedroom and a wood-burning stove in the living room. The kitchen is clean and well stocked. The deck is a terrific place for a summer dinner overlooking the pond.

The 2 outdoor showers are a great place to enjoy the outdoors after a day at the beach. The Pond Camp is an additional outbuilding on the shore of Flat Bottom Pond with a single bedroom with a queen bed, and a bathroom with a composting toilet, sink and outdoor shower. The Pond Camp is located approximately 50 yards from the main house and provides a private space away from the main house and close-up views of the pond and its wildlife (ducks, pinkletinks). The Hill Camp is another studio cottage up the hill from the main house with nice views of Flat Bottom Pond. It is currently undergoing a complete renovation and will contain 2 twin beds and a bathroom with a sink and outdoor shower. The Hill Camp is approximately 25 yards from the main house and provides a great escape for 2 people. The main house and both camps have flat-screen TV's with cable TV and high-speed wireless internet. Finally, the Activity Barn is a 1,000 square foot open, lofty space that provides a large play space for kids with a ping-pong table and cable TV. This space hosts an annual art retreat for 10 painters.

Seth's Pond, the best swimming pond on the island, is one mile down Lambert's Cove Road. Ice House Pond, part of the Land Bank's Manaquayak Preserve, is another stunning swimming pond near the house. Numerous conservation areas totaling more than 500 acres (Ripley's Field, Hoft Farm Preserve, Cranberry Acres, Duarte's Pond, Blackwater Pond Reservation, Vineyard Meadow, Wompesket Preserve, and John Presbury Norton Farm) are within a short walk of the house.

Martha's Vineyard is our favorite place in the world and it gives my wife and I great pleasure in sharing our house with you. It's a gem of a house in a beautiful woodland setting overlooking a vernal pond. We love to have family get-togethers at the house and our guests have done the same. We've hosted honeymooners, wedding parties, rehearsal dinner, and numerous family reunions.

Our guests have universally remarked upon the terrific feel of the house - the comfortable yet simple layout, the bright and cozy rooms, the wonderful outdoor spaces overlooking the pond, and the incredible collection of trees. It's an equally wonderful place to spend a week in the summer or a weekend in the fall or winter. We have enjoyed having others share our home on Martha's Vineyard which we consider to be one of the most beautiful and interesting islands in the world.

Martha's Vineyard has numerous highly Zagat-rated restaurants, ranging from lobster shacks overlooking the water to farm-to-table modern restaurants to MIchelin-rated fine dining. Vineyard Haven is approximately 1.5 miles from the house, Oak Bluffs is approximately 5 miles, and Edgartown 7 miles from the house. Public transportation is available on Lambert's Cove Road but the island is best explored with your own car and/or bicycle. We have several favorite kayaking spots to share if you are so inclined.

Wireless internet and Airplay music streaming in the living room are available.

To ensure a pleasant stay at our house, we would like to inform you of our policies.

1) For summer weekly rentals: Check-in time is 3:30 PM Sunday and check-out time is 9:30 AM Sunday

2) In the off-season (before Memorial Day, after Columbus Day), we are happy to oblige shorter rentals and different turn-over days. The minimum stay is 3 nights. Generally, stays shorter than 3 nights are not cost-effective for either one of us.

3) Linens and towels provided. The kitchen is very well stocked for cooking, including range with oven and gas burners, microwave, coffee maker and grinder, toaster oven, Weber charcoal grill, blender, etc.

4) No smoking.

5) Pets considered, please discuss with Ben.

6) We can assist with ferry reservations for all summer weeks, but this is best arranged by booking early (public tickets available starting early January via internet or mail and late January via phone).

7) Standard rental includes three-bedroom main house. There are two one-bedroom cottages ("Pond Camp" and "Hill Camp") that are available for larger groups. Renting the cottages is optional and we never rent out the cottages separately from a group occupying the main house in order to preserve your privacy.

8) The main house has two bedrooms with queen-sized beds (both downstairs) and one with two twin beds (upstairs). There is also a very small sleeping loft above one of the downstairs bedrooms that can sleep one person (see photo in "Bedrooms" photo gallery).

9) The Pond Camp has a bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a bathroom with a sink and composting toilet. There is an outdoor shower. There are no cooking facilities.

10) The Hill Camp just underwent a complete renovation. It has a bedroom with two twin extra long-sized beds and a sink. At this time, it doesn't have a working toilet. There is an outdoor shower. There are no cooking facilities.

11) For large groups who need more space, our next-door neighbors have recently renovated their house and are happy to facilitate renting both houses simultaneously. Call Ben to discuss further.

12) Bookings typically start in the winter for the following summer, but we are happy to take reservations at any time.



Si vous annulez jusqu'à 7 jours avant le voyage, vous recevez un remboursement à hauteur de 50 %. En cas d'annulation au cours des 7 jours précédant le voyage, la réservation est non remboursable.

This house was better than the description. Our family of 4 adult couples had both privacy and space for wonderful social time. The kitchen is fabulous. Directions for everything were very clear. Ben was exceptionally responsive and gracious. We love this part of the island. It is close to everything but quiet. The house and grounds are comfortable and beautiful. We appreciated the puzzles, games, ping pong and many places for reading and conversation.

The Whimsical cottage property was absolutely magical. It completely exceeded all expectations, being just a short drive off the beaten path from Vineyard Haven and then also feeling very private and secluded in the woods right on the pond. The house had lots of charm and character, was very well organized/equipped and very clean. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Thank you, Ben!

The host was great and answered all the questions we had. The house is very cute and has everything you need for a weekend/week away. It's in the middle of the woods so it can certainly get buggy but nothing a good bug spray can't fix. We loved staying here and would definitely recommend it to friends in the future.

This is an enchanting place...When i arrived, I left that I had walked in a Poem. It's creative designs, give this warm and earthy Home, a feeling of mystery and Fairytale. We were a family of six, the sleeping set up and the two bathrooms, was very comfortable for All of us. The master bedroom had a fireplace and a glass door that led to the back porch. It was wonderful to wake up with the Sunrise be hide the Pond. The other downstairs bedroom also had access to the porch and the French doors in the living room also. The kitchen is very sunny with great lighting form the Skylight. it was set up with basic everyday items and a W&D. The bathrooms were super clean, towels and sheets were nice too. We loved our stay... Ben was most kind and attentive. if we needed anything, he was just a phone call away, And responded to our needs very quickly. We are going back for Xmas for a even more Enchanting experience.
