Enjoy up-island charm and down-island convenience in our lovely 4 bedroom house. Set on a spacious, tree-filled yard with big trees and gardens, yet within walking distance to town, campground cottages, and harbor.

The space

This property is unique because it's so convenient to all that Oak Bluffs has to offer, yet is set on a big, lovely yard. It is worlds apart yet close to everything. Walking distance to town, campground cottages, harbor, Inkwell Beach. A very short drive to State Beach, which is one of the best on the island. Plus it's convenient to all down-island locations.

The house is fully equipped for comfort and fun with your friends and family, with a kitchen with big dining table, a living room with wood stove, a "den" with games, toys, television with a selection of movies, and two built-in daybeds. There is one downstairs bedroom with a queen bed. Upstairs has three bedrooms: one kid's room with two twins, along with toys and books; one big bedroom which has a queen size bed as well as a cozy daybed; and one tiny "ship-size" room which has a queen bed.
The outdoors has a dining table, gas grill, and pleasant area for lounging in lawn chairs at the end of the day with a lemonade or beer, as well as an outdoor shower. The covered front porch has a couple of rocking chairs where you can sip your morning coffee. There is also a garden where guests are welcome to pick veggies and herbs.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the house, yard, and a parking area. There are beach chairs, towels, outdoor furniture, and a gas grill. All linens are included.

Other things to note

There is a guesthouse on the property which is also available for rent. While they both have their own space and feel pretty private, you might run into another guest during your stay, perhaps near the garden or driveway.
If you'd like to accommodate more people, the guesthouse can be rented out together with the main house for a reduced rate. Please inquire if you are interested.

Awesome place! Everyone loved their stay! Beds were very comfortable, lots of toys for the young kids, great games & books for the older ones and lots of room for the grown ups! Kids loved the swing out back... You even had can jam!!!

Jennifer's place is wonderful. It is conveniently located yet nestled in the woods. It is well equipped with everything you need for a family holiday, including a magical swing in the garden. My wife and I with our seven-year-old, five-year-old, and three-year-old had a ball. Thanks Jennifer!

Jennifer's place is the best we have stayed at. This year was our third year at the farmhouse. We have been staying on the Vineyard for many years and have stayed in many places. None compare with Jennifer's. It easily accommodates 2 grandparents, 3 adult children and spouses and 5 grandchildren. The main house is spacious and comfortable with lots of toys, games, and books. The little cottage is perfect for 2-3 people. The yard is private and big enough for a wiffle ball game. Jennifer provides sheets, towels, beach towels and chairs. And the beds are freshly made when you arrive! The walk to downtown is easy enough for a 3 year old to walk without complaining. We love Jennifer's farmhouse and highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful stay at Jennifer's home. She was very helpful and accommodating during the booking stage. Upon arrival, the farmhouse exceeded our expectations! The setting is peaceful and bucolic with beautiful trees, a vegetable garden that we were welcome to enjoy, and a fantastic swing that my young kids couldn't get enough of. Inside the home was tastefully decorated blending traditional farmhouse features such as beautiful molding, hardwood floors, and a claw foot tub upstairs with contemporary finishes such as stainless steel appliances, and framed children's artwork. We didn't make use of the bikes and kayaks on site but used some of the boogie boards, beach chairs and beach toys. Our children loved sleeping in the "kids room" with the well stocked book shelves and they made great use of some of the children's toys tastefully tucked away in rattan baskets. The home's location is excellent: a hop, skip, and a jump to all the restaurants and shops of Oak bluffs yet it feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of circuit ave. We couldn't be happier with our stay and hope we can return again soon!

This is our second time staying at Jennifer's lovely house and we may have loved it even better the second time. It is well appointed and stylishly decorated yet comfortable and down to earth. The yard is huge and beautiful. The little cottage and garden give a secluded, country farm feel, yet you can easily walk to town or the beach. We truly appreciate the bikes and other amenities that are there for us to use. Jennifer and caretaker Skip are warm, attentive and flexible hosts. We found this house to be pretty much perfect for us and hope to return again and again. Thanks Jennifer and Skip!
