Chilmark cottage description

This is the Guest House to our house and it's situated about 100 yards up a country lane off the South Road in Chilmark. Alley’s General Store is one mile to the east and Beetlebung Corner and The Chilmark Store are four miles to the west. You can continue out State Road to Squibnocket Beach, or head up to Menemsha to watch the sunset, perhaps while enjoying a freshly boiled lobster from Larsen’s. Your lease enables you to acquire a parking pass for Squibnocket Beach and walk-on passes for Lucy Vincent Beach. We’re about a mile from the farmer’s markets and crafts shows in West Tisbury.

We built the Guest House in 2004. The wood paneling gives it a warm, inviting ambiance. There's a queen bed, full bath, small kitchen, grill, outdoor shower, and wi-fi Internet access.

Please note that a parking sticker for Lucy Vincent Beach is NOT available to renters, though renters may purchase walk-on passes to Lucy Vincent Beach.

We ask that you supply your own bed linens and towels, but most everything else you need is supplied, including beach chairs, well-equipped kitchen, hair dryer, etc.

Please note there is a $125 per rental cleaning fee.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: We are Jennie and Jeremy Driesen and we live in Pelham, NY with two children, a black dog, and a black cat. Jeremy is an events producer and Jennie is a nurse.

                  Why the Owner Chose Chilmark:
                  We stayed with friends in Chilmark and fell in love with Lucy Vincent Beach and the whole feel of Chilmark. While we were there, 8 Swans Way came on the market. It seemed a bit impulsive at the time, but we bought it. One of the best things we ever did. We have spent a number of full summers on the island and forgot to go home one September (we enrolled the kids in The Chilmark School and stayed for 14 months).

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We love so many things in Chilmark and the Vineyard in general, including, in no particular order, Lucy Vincent Beach, Menemsha, The Chilmark Store, Chilmark Chocolates, The Chilmark School, The Chilmark Library, the fair, The Ritz, Sharky's, Offshore Ale, biking, last-minute pot luck dinners with friends, etc etc etc.
