EXTRAORDINARY SITE We are long-time summer residents on the Vineyard, and our daughter always wanted to have the island as the location for her wedding. The Stoney Hill Road House provided the perfect setting. As lovely as the pictures are on the Home Away website, they do not adequately convey the beauty, serenity and privacy of the house and grounds. The house is exceptional – spacious and appointed with comfortable and luxurious furnishings. Family members had privacy but enjoyed being together throughout the house especially in the enormous downstairs recreation room and the several dens/television rooms. The master bedroom consists of a suite of rooms that provided the space and light for the bridal party to prepare for the wedding. The special features of the property made it especially suited to meeting the vision my daughter and her fiancé had for their wedding of one location that could be the center of all the activities – from the cocktail hour, through the reception and a brunch the morning after the wedding. The barn provided a magical setting for the reception including a plated dinner and an evening that had all the guests on the dance floor. The wedding guests used words like “enchanted” and “wonderful” to describe the events. We worked with a number of excellent island vendors starting with our incredible wedding planners, Plan It MV, and Jaime Hamlin catering. The newlyweds live in California but the Vineyard vendors made it possible to plan a wedding with all the details the couple wanted. Stoney Hill Road House is a special place to have the perfect Vineyard wedding or for an exceptional, memorable vacation.
My now husband and I were looking for a venue to host an intimate wedding. We had stopped here to look at the property as a potential venue during one of our vacations and immediately fell in love. The house is secluded and the property is immaculate. Being able to rent the property from Wednesday to Wednesday was perfect. It allowed us to take our time setting up for the wedding and also gave us time to relax after the festivities were over. We invited our bridal party to stay the week with us as a thank you. We had a full house the whole week but never felt overcrowded. The house is gorgeous and I would have been content if we never left the property. We were able to bring in our own vendors which was important to us because we wanted to personalize our wedding as much as we could. We received so many compliments about the wedding and the picturesque location. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway or a venue that will allow you to make your wedding special, this place is it.
We had such an amazing time at the Stoney Hill Road House. We had our wedding there in early September and our entire bridal party stayed at the house with us. One of the reasons we chose this place is because you can bring in all your own vendors. It was totally DIY, and we were able to customize our entire wedding day to our liking. We brought in a tent for dinner, had our favorite band play in the barn, and set up all the decorations ourselves. All those personal touches made the day that much more special. The house and grounds are simply amazing. Right away, it felt like home to us, and our family and friends have not stopped talking about how perfect the house, lawn, grounds, scenery etc are. It was really special. Do yourself a favor and book a stay here. Especially if you're looking for an epic DIY wedding.
Everything about this house and property was amazing. Darren was a gracious host, helpful and facilitative in the wedding planning process and also there to make sure things went right with the set up during the days prior. The house itself was immaculate and super clean, gorgeous interior and exterior making it the ideal place to stay. Our wedding was beautiful and so much of that is because we had such a picturesque venue (the ceremony was on the lawn and reception up at the barn). The house is also a great location on the Vineyard, very central. Close to the ferries in Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven and a 10 minute drive to Edgartown. Very convenient for my guests and for us to get around the island. Since it's tucked away in the woods you won't hear a car or passer-byers at all. Highly recommend this home for anyone looking to have a more intimate wedding, or just to spend a week in a very tranquil and pretty spot! HUGE thanks to Darren for making this amazing place available to us for our special day.
We had an amazing stay at the house! We rented it for our family to stay in during our wedding weekend, and we hosted a rehearsal dinner/picnic at the house. Everything was perfect, the house was immaculate, plenty of space for a large family to spread out and have their different areas to hang out. The lower level with the movie theater and shuffleboard were so much fun! My mother in law was in a wheelchair so the accessibility of the house was paramount to us and everything functioned perfectly for her. From the roll-in bathrooms to the elevator, and the spacious hallways and kitchen area. I can't wait to come back and stay here again!
This was my family's fourth year staying at the Stoney Hill Road house, and every time is better than the last. The house is large, spacious, but still very comfortable and well appointed. In addition, the owners think of everything, they are very responsive to every question, and they even provide great tips on what to do to maximize your enjoyment of the island. This house is amazing. It has everything we need for family fun, combined with a peacefulness that you don't always find. We are 10-20 mins from everything we want to do on the island, but with a "homey" feel that you can't get from one of the hotels or even a B&B. Every year my immediate family invites 2-3 guests to join us, and everyone has plenty of space and privacy. And my sons (ages 4 & 7) couldn't be more thrilled with their summer vacation. We highly highly highly recommend this as a vacation spot for an extended family. The first thing we did when we got home? Confirm for next summer too!
