    About this property

    Spacious Lakeside House, Amazing Year-round Water & Sunset Views, Private Beach

    Lakefront Holiday home with kitchen and balcony
    Enjoy spectacular lake and ocean views, amazing sunsets and your own private beach any time of the year. This comfortable, family-friendly house looks west across Lake Tashmoo and the Vineyard Sound towards sunsets over the Elizabeth Islands. Absolutely lovely in summertime, the property offers special value to visitors attending Island weddings, family get-togethers and reunions of old friends in the ''shoulder months'' before and after peak season at seasonally lower costs. With a new house built in 1999 on land our grandfather bought 100 years ago, ''Macy Tashmoo Pond'' is a cherished family treasure. Built on one and a half acres of prime lakefront just off Herring Creek Road, the house is only a mile from downtown Vineyard Haven. Featuring all-new appliances in 2019, high-speed cable service, a large parking lot and two-car garage, you will have all the convenience of home in a uniquely beautiful and private location. Enjoy convenient access to everything the Martha's Vineyard has to offer, or just relas and 'get away from it all.' Relax in the sunshine on the main deck or in the shade of the covered upstairs deck while you take in the spectacular views and feel the cool breeze coming off the lake. Walk about 50 yards from the house for kayaking, sailing, clamming or a pleasant swim in the lake. Or walk .3 miles to Wilfrid's Pond Beach or .7 miles to Lake Tashmoo Town Beach. Mink Meadows Golf Club is also within walking distance (.9 mile). The calm waters of 270-acre Lake Tashmoo are great for kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding. If you don't have your own, Wind's Up in Vineyard Haven rents a variety of watercraft with convenient and affordable delivery and pickup to and from the house. We installed new kitchen appliances (range, refrigerator and dishwasher) in March 2019 and a brand new washer and dryer in August 2019. A second refrigerator on the lower level provides extra storate for food and beverages. The house is fully equipped with all the cookware, tableware and silverware you will need. Cushioned window seats, books, toys and games are available to enhance your stay. This is our home and we look forward to sharing it with you and your family. Amenities include premium cable TV with Netflix, high-speed internet and wi-fi and telephone service with unlimited domestic calling. There are two flat-screen televisions, one in the master bedroom and one in the living room. The house is equipped with ample USB charging ports for your personal devices. Sleeping accommodations include a king bed in the master bedroom and four queen beds in the other three bedrooms and separate bunkhouse. In addition, there are two twin beds in the sleeping nook on the lower level. All linens and towels are provided. Ocean breezes keep the temperature mild, but fans and central heat are available if needed. There is a full house back-up power generator in the event of a power outage. Two Weber barbecue grills are available for your use. Grab bars on the shower and bathtub, a first floor bedroom and a ramp to the entrance make the house accessible. A separate bunkhouse provides extra space for teenagers or privacy for a couple. Massachusetts and local taxes of 11.7% apply to all rentals.

      A perfect “girls trip” destination

      If you are looking for a beautiful gathering place featuring amazing sunsets, then look no further. From the moment I booked this property I knew it was going to be special, but oh my it Exceeded our expectations. We all arrived from different parts of the country to relax, unwind and explore Martha’s Vineyard. All communication with the Macy family was excellent. The house had everything we needed. We felt blessed to reunite as friends and spend our evenings on the balcony with wine & cheese while viewing the sunset. Most Uber drivers arrived within 10-15 minutes. We enjoyed walking in to Vineyard Haven for coffee and a little exercise in the morning.

      5/5 Excellent

        Serenity at it's finest.

        This has been the easiest rental we have done. All the information was well laid out out along with maps restaurants etc. Nothing was missed .Beautiful property.

          Beautiful and tidy

          Amazing house with great views. Owner is extremely helpful and kind. The half mile unpaved road is worth the view!

          5/5 Excellent

            Beautiful setting, charming Vineyard home

            We all had an amazing time at the Macy house on Lake Tashmoo. The location is fantastic—close enough to all the down island towns to make going out easy, but with a peaceful and secluded feel that tempts you to stay in. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets from our deck, and swimming and hanging out at the private beach on Tashmoo. The house was clean, comfortable and stocked with everything we needed—including beach towels, great beach chairs, and all kitchen gadgets. Games and TV service, WiFi, etc., were very much appreciated. We loved the outdoor shower. We could tell the house was much loved and are grateful for the warm welcome we received. Thank you, Tim and Bobbie, for being such gracious and attentive hosts—we only regret we weren’t able to stay longer!

            5/5 Excellent

              Best sunset views ever!

              Our stay in the Macy house was beyond our expectations! Not only was the house super clean with everything we needed, the beds were so comfortable. And although we knew the view would be spectacular, nothing could compare to seeing it live and in person . Tim was a delight to communicate with. Would stay there again!
