Flip Flop

Nice Catch

When a Massachusetts couple falls hook, line, and sinker for modest fishing shacks on Martha’s Vineyard, the end result is a real keeper of a cottage.

When Marsha Ahearn went hunting for beach plums with friends on Martha’s Vineyard five years ago, she had no idea she was going to find a plum location instead. “My friends took me to this secret little spot in Edgartown,” she says. “I thought I knew every street on the island, but this place was tucked away. The houses there were like the ones in the movie The Summer of ’42—funky and far from perfect.”
