    Additional Location Information
    We are located just up from the North Wharf at the end of Morse Street. The home is located on the corner of Morse and North Water Streets. The North Wharf in Edgartown was originally owned by Captain Morse. In the morning I like to walk down to the water and see the harbor wake up.
    The house is just a few blocks from Main Street and is an easy walk to shopping and dining without being directly in the hustle and bustle of the shopping district.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This house was perfect for our large group! We were on the Vineyard to celebrate our daughter's college graduation with her friends and our sons. The house was full! We slept between 12 and 17 each night...and there was room for more. We had wonderful family dinners in the dining room, game nights in the family room, a cocktail party in the living room and a clambake on the lawn. Everything was perfect- all the things you need for a great trip from a totally outfitted kitchen to fast internet service to a closet full of beach towels to a great laundry set up to a shed full of bicycles. Impeccably clean upon arrival, too. The only reason I would hesitate to recommend it is it might not be available the next time we want to visit! more

Management response:

We can actually accommodate up to 23 guests but the less guests the more peaceful, gracious and relaxed the home is. I grew up in this house with just the four in our family. Didn't know how lucky I was. This was a wonderful guest and I sure hope they come back. more
