Description

''Glamping'' on Lake Tashmoo - enjoy the taste of old Vineyard summers! We call it glamping, by which we mean glamourous camping. The structure itself is an incredible, exposed stud and rafter structure, and rustic would be an appropriate description of the space. However, there are many amenities not found on a typical camp site, such as washer/dryer, high quality sheets, wireless internet, full kitchen with coffee maker, dishwasher and more. There is no TV. \n\nThe Lodge is an old school ''camp'' built in 1922 as the main lodge of a girls' camp called Camp Tashmoo. The main part of the building is roughly 33' x 33', a mostly open space with partitions at the dressing room and the kitchen. There is a 12' wide sleeping porch that runs the length of the building. In the main area there is a hanging couch/hammock, a couch and chair area, a dining area, another puzzle/crafts area and the kitchen and various built in benches. The sleeping porch is located off the dressing room down a few stairs from the main level, and contains a queen sized bed and two twin beds in one area, and then an additional two twin beds behind a partition to allow for visual privacy but not acoustical privacy (the wall goes to a normal height but not all the way up to the sloped ceiling). \n \nThe Lodge is located on the shore of Lake Tashmoo, and there is a small beach located a short walk through the salt marsh in front of the house. This is a good beach for little kids (shallow water) and a fine place to tie up a canoe or sunfish. The Lodge faces west, and countless sunsets have been captured by our family over the past 92 years. Herring Creek Road is a sand road that has two way traffic with one lane, so care and time is needed to navigate through the woods. Two public beaches are located down Herring Creek Road and Vineyard Haven is about 1. 5 miles from the Lodge
