Prettier than Fiction

No, this is not where I am staying.

But it is an amazing house…right on North Water Street in Edgartown – yes, that’s the harbor peeking on the side of the backyard.

It reminds me of Jill’s house (PLACES BY THE SEA, OFF SEASON), which, of course, I made up.

Or did I?

Anyway, this is indicative of the gorgeous, white, sea captains’ houses in the historic whaling village, complete with a famous widow’s walk on the roof. (Note: I’ve learned that a gloss white, oil-based paint is the norm for the exteriors of the Edgartown houses.)

Now for the good news: this one has a sign in the window reads: For Rent.

So if you’re looking for a great “cottage” for that summer vacation, look no further. This is the real deal.
