Near Lambert’s Cove, a band of marauders storms the hill leading to the Bresnick home. Annie Bresnick stands at ground zero, observing the advance from her window. She’s no damsel in distress. It’s ten minutes to three, and her boys Zach, Sam, and Owen – ages eleven, ten, and eight, respectively – are predictably on time, fresh off the school bus. They’ve widened their flank on this winter afternoon, as their buddy Nate D’Angelo ascends the hill alongside his comrades.

Tucked back from Barnes Road at the edge of Lagoon Pond, Jim and Pam Buttericks’ house in Oak Bluffs is a year-round delight – whether on a winter morning with a steaming cup of coffee indoors or for a summer sunset with a glass of wine on the deck: “I feel like I’m looking at a Monet painting,” Pam says.

On a muggy summer night, reminiscent perhaps of Havana or Key West, Tom O’Hanlon stands in what one could easily assume is the Island’s only Hemingway-themed bathroom. He’s pointing out some of the memorabilia that line the shelves of the small space in the modest house on Jernegan Avenue in Edgartown that he shares with his wife, Jen. It’s actually only a half-bath, but the term “powder room” hardly seems applicable to a space that is nearly filled with the accoutrements of sport fishing.
