As a guest of the Inn, you are allowed a daily pass to two private different island treasures – Lambert’s Cove Beach and Ice House Pond. Our complimentary golf cart will drop you off at either location.
Lamberts Cove Beach is one of the prettiest and most pristine beaches on the island, perfect for a sunset. It is known for the beauty of the beach and the setting, which many say feels like a Caribbean cove.
From 1908 to 1953 the Vineyard Ice Company operated an ice-harvesting business in this freshwater pond, complete with gantries and conveyor belts and storehouses. Its industrial era now behind it, this kettle pond and its surrounding woodlands are today quiet and scenic. Unlike most Vineyard swimming spots, this property lacks a beach; it is, therefore, a place less suited to families with children and more suited to experienced swimmers who wish to exercise. Because wading and jumping aren’t appropriate here — swimmers enter the pond by slipping off a designated perch directly into five feet of water
