Chilmark house description

Come enjoy the bucolic town of Chilmark on Martha's Vineyard in our 5 bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath home. The views from the house and yard of Squibnocket Pond, the barrier beach sand dunes and the ocean beyond are spectacular. Our spacious year-round family home has been enjoyed by four generations and is cozy and inviting. It has lots of open living areas, including a generous family room and a huge studio room. Renters can entertain guests or large families using the full kitchen and large dining table that seats ten. The deck has dining for eight and faces west so you won't miss the unbeatable sunsets.

Squibnocket Beach is a short walk away. Beach passes for renters must be obtained from the Town of Chilmark. Private access to Zack's Cliff beach is 10 minutes by car. An outdoor shower makes cleaning up after the beach a breeze. You can also launch your canoe or kayak for a paddle on Squibnocket Pond or use the canoe and safety gear available. The property hosts an amazing organic vegetable and flower garden which is maintained by one of the owners. Renters who must check email or update their blogs can use the house WiFi.

The master bedroom is on the lower level and has a queen bed, private bath, and a sliding door to the flower garden. All other bedrooms and living areas are on the upper level. Upper bedrooms include one queen bed, two rooms with two twins and the office which has one twin bed. A full bath and 1/2 bath are also on this level.

Families with young children should note that 1 highchair, 1 Graco Pack n' Play/crib, and 3 long bed rails for twin beds are available. Arts & crafts, toys, books and games galore are also available. Ask for further items available for children. We are a pet-friendly house.

Please go to the Town of Chilmark or MVOL website for further information regarding beaches in the area.
