There's lots going on for Memorial Day 2018 as the islands restaurants and hotels have been gradually opening up after this long winter stretch. Check out the local papers and what's happening on MV Facebook page for restaurant openings, many of which have specials at this time of the year, such as dollar oysters at Beach Road!
While most people know the Chilmark Tavern for a wonderful summer dining experience, during the off-season the Tavern is transformed into an arts center that attracts the best of the island’s creative artists from poets, to singers, dancers, artists, knitters, piano players and performers.
As the winter months pass by in typical North Easterly fits of temper, blizzards, ice and blues, inside the cozy Tavern islanders gather weekly to share their works-in-progress or present work finished and ready for public viewing.
As the island recovers from 3 and a half, (the last one didn't amount to much), Nor'easters in two weeks, we're recapping the total number of property transactions that Tea Lane Associates has been a part of for the first three months of 2018.
At the Vineyard Haven library on Tuesday night, there was a good turn out of people to hear Donald Nelson talk about his book entitled "Chappaquiddick Tragedy, Kennedy's Second Passenger Revealed". The book gives his account and theory behind the controversial tragedy and subsequent cover up involving Senator Ted Kennedy, and the death of one of his campaign aids, Mary Jo Kopechne.
This years "TEA LANE 2017 YEAR-END HIGHLIGHTS" are really impressive!

Despite the February temperatures, things are hotting up in the rental market and February has folks dreaming of their summer vacation on Martha's Vineyard. The prime first two weeks of august are filling up fast, but we still have plenty of great properties with lots of availablity for summer 2018. And if you missed the Steamship Authority early ferry ticket sale, some smart homeowners purchased transferable ferry tickets which could be available to savvy renters.
The New Year was off to a cold start when we were hit with the famous “Bomb Cyclone” storm that effected the entire east coast. The island actually got more of a slushy snow mix and then temperatures plumetted and we were hit with a deep freeze that turned us into pretty much one massive ice skating rink!. It effected travel and schools for a day or two but the ice hockey players were happy out on the ponds and it certainly kept the plumbers busy!
Two classic Vineyard antique homes sold recently, each with unique and interesting pasts:
