Easy walk from Oak Bluffs Ferry, steps to Town (aka Inkwell), 5 minute walk to downtown. No car is No Problem! We provide bulky items so you don't need to haul them over from the mainland, such as: beach chairs, a cooler, linens (even towels just ask), beach toys for the kids, tennis rackets, basketballs. (There are newly-paved public tennis and basketball courts within walking distance.)

So many wonderful recent updates: Updated granite kitchen with dishwasher, garbage disposal and every gadget needed for a great meal. 2nd floor balcony was re-opened, to return to the original character of the house and to gain a better view of the beach. Lots of new furniture for many rooms, fresh paint everywhere, new outdoor gas grill with new outdoor dining table & chairs. Window ACs for upstairs bedrooms, 1st floor bedroom and living room!!

Located in the Copeland Historic District area, steps to Oak Bluffs Town Beach (Inkwell), 1/4 mile to downtown Oak Bluffs, and a short walk from the Oak Bluffs Ferry, this circa 1870s, classic beach cottage has 4 bedrooms (plus 1 boxcar room with loft beds accessible by ladder) and 2 full bathrooms (each with shower, one bath per floor). The cottage sleeps 10 comfortably.

Oak Bluffs Town Beach/Inkwell is a just a hop, skip and jump from the house. This house has ocean views and is across from Seaview Ave. You can sit out on 3-season porch or the private front, 2nd floor balcony and enjoy an ocean view with your morning coffee. Waban Park is one street over, great for kite flying and playing ball. Ocean Park is about 4 small blocks away. Also the town's tennis and basketball courts (newly paved) are a short walk from the house.

Catch great bike routes from Sea View Ave. Downtown Oak Bluffs is a short 5 minute walk where you can dine out or visit many retail stores. Don't miss the country's oldest carousel in downtown Oak Bluffs.

Although it's nice to unplug, the house has free Wifi with a code for those who want to stay connected, as well as TVs with cable.

There is one, convenient downstairs bedroom that has 1 king-size bed, perfect for those who may have difficulty with the steep staircase to the 2nd floor.
Upstairs bedrooms include:
Green room: 1 Queen size bed.
Purple Room: 1 Double bed, 1 twin bed
Loft Room: 1 twin and 1 double bed, accessed by ship ladder, a boxcar room with purple room
Yellow Room: 1 Double bed, 1 twin bed

Comfy mattresses are on every bed with fully-encased, non-vinyl, waterproof allergy mattress covers and pillow covers. We also start you out with: rolls of paper towels, 3 rolls of toilet paper, coffee filters, garbage bags, liquid hand soap, a new and clean dish sponge, a bottle of Dawn liquid, Cascade dishwasher pods, and laundry detergent.

We like to have contact with our guests via phone to ensure that the house is the right fit for them. It is an antique house, not a party house, and located in a very quiet neighborhood. Since it is in-town, the houses are very close together and people are respectful of noise levels. It's not that you can't have fun though. You can also email us through this site with your inquiry. Please tell us about yourself and your party. For your peace of mind, we accept online payments via PayPal (you can use a credit card or e-check with PayPal). Feel free to call with any questions: (508) 258-9840.

NO PETS are allowed mid-June through Labor Day, no exceptions. Our turnaround is too tight and we cannot adequately prepare for the next guests if a pet has stayed in the cottage.
