Now that the New Year is here, it’s the perfect time to make your dream of a Martha’s Vineyard vacation home come true. In fact, we found two seaside retreats that fit the bill. Both offer fantastic waterfront locales and views, plus delightful interiors that will make it easy to move. The only question is, which is more you? Take your pick in this week’s Splurge vs. Steal.
Splurge: Quintessential Martha’s Vineyard Retreat On Vineyard Sound
First of all, this Martha’s Vineyard splurge has us swooning! The shingle-style beauty sits on a 0.59-acre lot on Vineyard Sound and is the ultimate seaside vacation home.
Secondly, it has traditional New England architecture, including plenty of windows, gables, and gambrels. Every angle offers something to admire! The eight-bedroom, six-bedroom-and-one-half-bathroom home offers an abundance of modern amenities too.
Among these are a high-end gourmet kitchen, two stunning living areas, and a generous master suite boasting a balcony with pristine water views. There is even a private path for taking a stroll to Chop Trust’s north shore beach. And the West Chop Club is just steps away.
Lastly, per the listing, “This private community affords easy access to beaches, independence and activities for all members, and an appealing lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of other parts of the island.”

Steal: Waterfront Gem Overlooking Lagoon Pond With Views Of Eastville Point Beach
Next, it’s time for our steal! For over $6 million less, you could find yourself in this waterfront charmer overlooking Lagoon Pond.
It sits on a lush 1.57-acre lot with views of Eastville Point Beach. Plus, it comes complete with 120-feet of Lagoon frontage! And we love the mature oak trees and blue waters surrounding the home.
In addition, there are five-bedrooms, three-full-bathrooms, a chef’s kitchen, and ample spaces to entertain. We love the home office area overlooking the sea, as well as the charming terrace that’s sure to inspire your inner artist.
You’ll enjoy a mix of historic and modern appointments as well. This includes Victorian architecture and cheerful pops of color that are sure to lift your mood. Of course, a home this fascinating has a rich in history too!
According to the listing, “This classic Victorian style home was built in the 1870s as part of the Innisfail Inn, a summer resort that attracted famous actors, operetta stars, and musicians, who spent their days enjoying the ocean breeze and perfecting their craft with informal concerts on the wrap-around porch.”
Today, it’s awaiting its new owner to steward into a new era. Could that be you?
