The Obamas will rent the stunning 29-acre Blue Heron Farm, on Martha's Vineyard, Chilmark, a glamorous spread featuring spectacular views, the Vineyard Gazette reported. Features a Victorian farmhouse, 5-bedroom "guest house," reconstructed Pennsylvania barn and NH shed.... owned by Mississippi timber magnate William Van Devender and wife Mollie.....had $20 million pricetag in 2005. Prior owners hosted the Clintons in 1998. The Obamas can stroll to a private saltwater pond or take a dip in the Atlantic from a private beach. Other features: a private dock with a Boston Whaler, a catamaran and several kayaks, a pool, and a hot tub overlooking the water w/ "total privacy," a vegetable garden, a miniature boathouse on the water with a loft for sleepovers. Obama was due the last week of August and was expected to pay the rental out of his own pocket. Similar luxury rentals rent between $35,000-50,000 per week.

Country road in Chilmark.
amusing how the recent democrat presidents, workin’ for po’ folks on the democrat plantation,
have to head out to be with the ultra rich that they despise.
This should help his polls.
Yes, but it is not about him!
As unemployment passes 10% and average Americans struggle to make ends meet, Obama goes on vacation at a $50k per week rental. A real man of the people.
The Post article mentions that many of Obama’s Vineyard neighbors will be the same people coughing up cash for the “millionaire’s” surtax he endorsed last Wednesday..... to pay for compulsory health reform.
$50,000 would pay for someone to save the bank from foreclosing on their home.
Maybe Christie Brinkley can take Michelle clothes shopping before hand.
ABC made the point that the Obama’s have to rent a vacation one like the Bushes did.
WRONG ... the Bushes owned a primary home in Crawford ... not a vacation home in Crawford. They did not have a vacation home. The Obama’s own a home in Chicago. They do not have to rent a vacation home.
I hope he is careful not to run off any bridges.
I wonder if the 50 grand includes a security deposit to clean the place up after they trash it.
The American people have been SATURATED for over a full YEAR about this empty suit hypocrite called Barack Obama. If it’s reality hasn’t bit them in the butt yet, it never will.
bill and hill stayed with friends on the vineyard?
i can’t remember.
It is assumed that Grandma (Michelles mom) and their dog Bo will be joining them as well.
They did, and many times. I think Bill got the most out of the schmoozing and high life. Hillary less so.
And Bill liked the women.

Have you ever seen a Marxist who wasn’t pure hypocrite?
