A Vineyard Haven hidden gem
From the Tashmoo Cottage website:
The beach is a perfect morning walk in the quiet of the woods with your canine friend from here, or a great bike ride away for active kids. The road is named Herring Creek, for the herring run at the inner part of the Tashmoo Lake. This is where Tisbury Water Works is located, and where the natural well providing our piped drinking water still runs lively. If you stay on course, you will soon notice the light through the trees as the forest opens to reveal the inner lagoon of the beach area.
There is parking for 15-20 cars, but we love to bike the distance and wash off with a dive into the salty water in the summer, or walk the beach in the off-season.
