Gayloon is a private beach off Moshup Trail in Aquinnah, on the far western end of Martha’s Vineyard. Located near the Painted House and a hundred yards southeast of the old Lillian Hellman beach shack, the property is surrounded by dunes, beach roses, inlets, and views of Nomans Land and the Elizabeth Islands. Purchased in 1960, the association was formed on September 25, 1978 as a 501C non-profit by Lagoon Pond residents. It remains in their families today and is managed by a multigenerational board of directors.
Board of Directors: Christopher Pitt, Stephen Chance, Janna Kaplan (President), Alex Wilcox Cheek, Robert Klein, Jean Berman (Treasurer), Stephen Perlman (Clerk), Dan Walker
