History of Pilot Hill Farm: Pilot Hill Farm was formerly the old Iselin Dairy Farm which last operated in the 1950’s – it was bought by the Vineyard Open Lands Foundation and made into a non-profit development of high end homes, each sitting on 3-5 acres of land – there are protective covenants and the house density if very low – there are 21 houses built on 90 acres of forest and fields with about 70 acres of common lands including a 1/2 mile private beach, parking areas, grazing fields and farm buildings. The farm and barns are located a 1/2 mile away from our house – the farm is clean and well kept with a couple belted Galloway cows, some chickens, pigs, and two friendly goats – the main crops are hay, cut flowers, table vegetables and eggs. It is not a commercial farm, but rather is run by a young couple who like living at Pilot Hill. The roads are well-kept unpaved country lanes that wind through the farm and fields to the beach. Good for walking and jogging and slow cruising.

Testament from Prior Guest in 2006 & 2007: ‘Just wanted to drop a note and thank you for renting your beautiful house on the Vineyard to us. This summer 2008 will be our third summer at your home. Since vacationing on the Vineyard since 1996, your home truly matches our family’s needs. With Meghan age six and Jack age four, we really need a place that has the amenities to fit our active family. Your home fits that. With the well stocked kitchen and comfortably-furnished family room, it’s ok to be “stuck home” on a rainy day!

The kids love running around the yard and walking to the beach. The walk along the farm – and last year being followed by the run-away billy goat – adds to their summer memories. Seeing cows walking through the woods was also quite the sight!

Pilot Hill Farm affords guests a way to have ultimate privacy on country roads, but also to enjoy cooking with the organic meat and produce of our small farm while still staying in touch with all the amenities of home. Pilot Hill’s calm north shore beach is great for kids to explore and for uncrowded relaxation. Our home’s central location allows easy access to Oak Bluff’s State Beach or Edgartown’s South Beach, and we are on the way to Up Island Menemsha fishing village. We offer our guests a way to experience the uncrowded, natural setting of the Vineyard as it was when we first came out as children. When the Island is busy or after a day at the beach, we seek the privacy of our Osprey House and enjoy the oversized outdoor shower, or the undisturbed quiet of a swing in a hammock on the side deck, or sit out on the sun deck to watch the humming birds stop in for a dip or watch the Osprey flying overhead. Total unwind with complete privacy and all the modern conveniences of home inside. View more about Glenn & Karen Herosian

Golf: There are a two public golf courses on the Vineyard, with a very pleasant 9 hole course about three miles from our home – it is Mink Meadows Course – located at 320 Golf Club Road Vineyard Haven, MA 02568 (508) 693-0600 Chet Nowak, P.G.A. Professional …

the other public course is the Farm Neck 18 hole course, which is quite famous with wonderful views and some very challenging holes. It is a bit expensive and hard to get decent tee times, but it is an experience not to be missed for avid golfers.
