Lake Tashmoo is a hidden gem in the densely built town of Vineyard Haven. Synonymous with pine woods and quiet residential neighborhoods of every description, the Tashmoo area features both old camps and modest homes to large summer houses. There are public town landing areas around the lake for launching boats, canoes, and kayaks.
