Beautiful vintage home that has been the Vineyard family summer home for several generations...built in 1905 the original character and charm remain though the house has been updated to accommodate current comforts. The large wrap-around porch of yesteryears which invites sitting, rocking and sipping tea is solidly in place and sets the tone for the summer. A visit to this family homestead with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths in the main section of the building and 2 bedrooms and 1 bath in the guest wing provides space for generational gatherings and focuses on relaxation, getting reconnected and enjoying all the pleasures of the Island.
