Edgartown Vacation Rental — The Dr. John Pierce House

Book a historical vacation spot from the 1830s

This exquisitely restored 1830s home boasts a rich and fascinating history and is ready to become part of history once again – your history.

Welcome to the stunning Dr. Pierce house. It holds a truly marvelous location — Edgartown’s Pierce Lane. Nestled on a quarter acre of private land and backed by Sheriff’s Meadow Sanctuary; it offers the perfect Martha’s Vineyard escape — where guests can enjoy total tranquility. While guests will enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle, Edgartown, with its shops, restaurants, historic sights, and beaches, is still within walking distance.

A beautiful and restored home on Martha’s Vineyard

With a tasteful design that is consistent throughout, this home has been lovingly transformed to seamlessly blend its old-world character and charm with modern interiors and updated furnishings. The cool white interior with shades of blue not only offers sereneness but nods to Edgartown’s past era as a center of the whaling industry.

It was during this time that Dr. Pierce built this house, looking north towards Nantucket Sound. He built his home with fine craftsmanship and attention to detail and elegance such as found in the grand staircase with a banister that curves like a seashell.  A Doctor of impeccable reputation, he cared for the people of Edgartown during the height of the whaling industry. With little imagination, we can imagine his wife, Chloe, gazing out the many windows at the view of the gardens. Oh, the stories they must have shared inside these walls!

Today, as you walk through this stately historic house with 3,910 square feet of living space, you will find beautiful hardwood floors and generously sized rooms for entertaining. The three working fireplaces provide a fantastic space for cozy nights with your loved ones.

Vacation rental amenities all Martha’s Vineyard guests will love

On the ground floor is the main living area which offers multiple spaces for relaxing and socializing, including a sitting room, dining room, study, and a large, fully equipped kitchen with a separate dining area. Walking into the fully equipped contemporary kitchen, you will find all the tools one would need to create delicious meals while the dining room can comfortably seat all your guests. The sunlit breakfast nook in the kitchen provides a place for relaxed casual meals or morning coffee. Three porches and a spacious sunroom offer additional areas to enjoy quiet, private moments.

Outside, guests at the Dr. Pierce house will enjoy spending evenings enjoying barbecues al fresco on the terrace while admiring the landscaped gardens. There is no better place to relax after a day exploring this wonderful part of Martha’s Vineyard than to lounge with a cocktail either next to the beautiful pool and its fully equipped pool house or on the patio overlooking Sheriff’s Meadow Sanctuary.

The Dr. Pierce house can comfortably accommodate up to ten guests across its six well-appointed bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, making it a fantastic setting for a special celebration or family reunion. We look forward to helping you create the setting for your own perfect story.
