Barack Obama's Summer White House
Blue Heron Farm, a 28.5-acre estate on Martha’s Vineyard, served as a
summer vacation getaway for President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama for three years in a row. The compound — which reportedly cost the Obamas $50,000 per week to rent — includes two full-sized houses, equestrian facilities, a bocce ball court and a par-3 golf course, among other amenities. Inside, both homes offer an elegant
country ambiance — not to mention enough room for a large
White House staff and Secret Service personnel.
