The room includes a parking pass to the one of the prettiest beaches in the world: Lambert’s Cove Beach on Vineyard Sound, just over three miles away. We also offer guests a parking pass for The Trustees of Reservations Long Point Wildlife Refuge, an extraordinary stretch of silky sand beach on the Atlantic Ocean and a pond over the dunes where there is swimming for all ages. Another nearby popular place to swim is at fresh water Seth’s Pond.
The West Tisbury Town Tennis Courts are but a mile away and a stay at our B&B includes a key to the courts.
Quiet time can be spent on The Broad Meadow grounds, in the hammock or sitting on a bench watching the world of meadow and gardens. We are a few feet from Martha’s Vineyard’s major bike path which circles the entire State Forest, and connects with other paths heading into Edgartown and along the beaches between Edgartown and Oak Bluffs. Bring or rent bikes on the Island (there is a good pump on our premises and a tricycle and one small two wheeler for a child), for short or long rides around the interior of the Vineyard. The Martha’s Vineyard Airport is two miles away on the bike path, a fun destination for biking to lunch at the Plane View Restaurant. The bike path is also a favorite for runners and walking.
Many other walking trails are nearby, including a Sheriff’s Meadow Conservation Society path through Nat’s Farm which abuts our meadow and an adjacent field. Walk down Elias Lane and cross over to an ancient way, Old Courthouse Road, which takes one by a charming field and stream to North Tisbury. Or cross over the field on a Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank path and walk to the Polly Hill Arboretum.
If you are attending an up-island wedding, your restful room with its sweet bathroom and spacious new shower, and calm surroundings, is the perfect place to get ready for the festivities. (There is also an enclosed outdoor shower.)
The Broad Meadow Bed & Breakfast is hosted by Marjory Potts. She and her husband, Robert, are filmmakers and journalists. They have been year round residents of West Tisbury for over thirty years and summer residents long before, and will be happy to help you in finding your way about the Island so that your vacation is as delightful as you could wish.
