A classic vacation cottage
A classic vacation cottage
There are three reasons to select Tilton House. First is the cottage itself which is a unique piece of Vineyard history, having been moved to its present location from Chilmark Brick Yard by oxen cart. It is a classic vacation cottage, well appointed and equipped -- especially the kitchen. Second is the location. The cottage provides a wonderful view of Menemsha harbor with its fishing boats, Dutcher's Dock with its seafood markets selling both fresh and ready-to-eat seafoods, the wetlands leading down to the beach and Vineyard Sound, and the Elizabeth Islands. The sunsets viewed from the beach are spectacular. The Chilmark area is bucolic, a distinct contrast with Edgartown and Vineyard Haven. The third reason to select Tilton Housing is the landlords. They are friendly and helpful but never intrusive.

About: My family has been on the island since the 1600s. My father and grandfather were commercial fisherman out of Menemsha Harbor. Some of the houses that we rent were old fishing shanties that were converted to summer cottages. We also rent out our own home for August. For up to 4 people - property. NO. 452894.
This house was transported from the Brickyard in Chilmark to it's current location by oxen and cart. My great grandparents lived there. After their death in the 1920s the house was made into a rental home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is in the center of the village of Menemsha...fresh fish, strolling on the dock, restaurants, front view seats to a beautiful sunset.
