                  Fees:

                  • Taxes Not included

                  Notes:

                  Martha's Vineyard is an island accessible only by ferry or airplane. The car ferry books very early in the new year, and we recommend that you secure a spot, even before you book a house! It is very easy to wait-list or change dates and times if you have a reservation. Saturday to Saturday ferries fill up starting in January!

                  A deposit of 50% of the total rent will be due when the signed lease is returned to us. The balance of the rent will be due 30 days prior to your arrival. We will also collect a refundable security deposit of $700, which will be returned to you once the house has been inspected after your stay.


                  Please wait... Travel with confidence

                  Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

                  The setting of this Chilmark family compound has been described as ''everyone's favorite island view,'' as depicted by artists Thomas Hart Benton and Kenneth Vincent. Located on Middle Road, across from Keith Farm, the property overlooks pastures and ponds, and has a 180-degree view of the Atlantic Ocean. Middlemark is situated 1/2 mile from The Chilmark Store, and close to Chilmark beaches and the town of Menemsha.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: My family has been coming to Martha's Vineyard since the 1940's! It is a very special place for us. Our kids have attended camp in Chilmark, and both work here during the summer. We currently live in Bedford, New York, and are counting the days until summer on The Vineyard!

                  Why the Owner Chose Chilmark:
                  Middle Road has always been a focal point of the area in Chilmark because of the breath taking views. The combination of pasture and ocean setting is unique. We used to admire it each time we road our bikes past. The previous owners had been here for generations, but we used to dream about 'what if...' When it came on the market, we couldn't believe our luck! The annual Chilmark Road Race passes our house each August - we have the best view from the deck at the top of the property!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                  The compound aspects of the property assures that we can have lots of friends and family with us, and everyone can still have their privacy. And with two separate outdoor showers, the wait for this summer luxury is short! This house and the property around us is protected by the local land bank - we know we will never loose our view!
