What a ghoulishly fun way to wrap up a special series of open house events for the Martha’s Vineyard real estate community. A Ghost Tour of Edgartown — right before Halloween!
A different kind of Edgartown real estate property tour on South Water Street — as the Vineyard Ghost Walking Tour hosts Gary Cook and Karen Alteri show us where the first governor of Martha’s Vineyard, Thomas Mayhew, and his family are buried, along with some of the ghostly tales that now whirl around them.
All this month, Point B Realty has been hosting a series of seasonally-themed, Monday night, open house events at the Harbor View Captain’s Cottage Suites.
The exclusive collection of 1, 2, and 3-bedroom luxury condos spread throughout the grounds of Edgartown’s Harbor View Hotel, offer the sophistication and charm of iconic Vineyard ownership, with all the services, amenities, and convenience that come with a private, fully-managed cottage suite at the Harbor View.
We’d like to thank all our friends and colleagues in the Martha’s Vineyard real estate community for stopping by for a first hand look at these unique offerings.
As our grand finale, last night’s event was themed around Halloween, and along with some tasty treats from the Harbor View chef, featured candy grab bags — some filled with additional special treats.
Trish Lyman from Lighthouse Properties (seated, right) grabbed the bag with the grand prize — an overnight stay for two in one of the Harbor View Captain’s Cottage Luxury Suites, plus breakfast for two at Henry’s restaurant.
Other prizes included a pumpkin pie (taken home by Fred Roven of Martha’s Vineyard Buyer Agents, seated right), pizza slices, and pumpkin beer.
A few hearty real estate souls decided to join us for the ghost walking tour of Edgartown, which we learned is full of ghostly tales from our past. Stops on the tour included the Vineyard Gazette and the Federated Church.
Last stop was the historic Pagoda tree on South Water Street. It is said the tree is full of ghostly orbs (we didn’t see any last night), while the Victorian Inn across the street has regular visitors of a ghostly kind.
