Set on 3 acres amid endless forest, with 200 year old oak trees, and enjoying a large fenced in vegetable garden, and hi speed internet this is the perfect island retreat.

The house is equipped with new high end appliances including stove, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher. There is also a new, large capacity Bosch laundry machine and dryer. Garbage and recycling pick up can be arranged for an additional fee.

                                                                This is our second summer back at this beautiful house, and we cannot say enough good about it. It is obviously someone's home -- cozy, tastefully appointed, with an excellent kitchen. And it is plenty big for several families to share. We shared it with two other families and our ages ranged from 6 weeks to 75 years. Everyone was happy. As to the location, it really can't be beat. This year the weather was chillier, and while we certainly visited the beaches, we also found occasion to go for walked through the many paths around the property. It is a lovely peaceful area. When we did go to the private beach, it was very secluded feeling and those that stayed behind to work on puzzles could also monitor the festivities on the beach through an excellent telescope positioned just right on a tripod in front of the window. Thank you Nelson and Melissa for a fabulous stay!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                We were super happy to have you back Sasha! So glad that 3 generations were able to enjoy (and fit!) into the house at the same time. And congratulations to your sister bringing such a new member of the family to stay!

                                                                With many thanks!


                                                                Nice house in an amazing place

                                                                Christo D.

                                                                My family of 4 had a great stay. Nelson's house is clean, well appointed and in an amazing spot up on a hill over looking Chilmark pond. It is quiet and peaceful - a great place for a family vacation. The only thing missing was a great place for the family to comfortably sit in the living room which I know is being remedied. I would definitely go back to this nice place in the incredible Martha's Vineyard.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                With best wishes for the coming year!

                                                                Loved this house!

                                                                Mark V.

                                                                My wife and I loved our stay at Chilmark. It's got a gorgeous garden that looks out across the pond to the ocean. The view, too, is lovely - the house seems to be totally alone as you look out to sea. Inside, the kitchen is great, big and well lit, with everything we needed to cook. The bathrooms were nice, but the outdoor shower kind of steals the thunder.

                                                                Loved the interior decor - the house is clearly owned by a family.

                                                                The owners were totally responsive, and helpful about everything from where to go eat to the best way to get across the pond to the ocean. We're anbsolutely looking forward to our next trip to the island and this home.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thanks so much for your great review! We love sharing the spot with our guests. With many thanks, M+N

                                                                So good, I hardly want to tell you about it

                                                                Sasha H.Brooklyn, New York

                                                                This house, I'd love to own it; alas, I only got to rent it. It sits atop a hill among age old stately trees and overlooks the sea. It has enough room for 3 couples and 4 kids to luxuriate. The common space is inviting and sunny. Each bed is a good one, and has quality comfortable bedding. The kitchen is very well appointed -- it even has truly sharp knives, so that my Global didn't even need to make an appearance (I packed it out of habit). The house belongs to people who love it. That much is clear from the moment you step in to the moment you leave, reluctantly, to catch the ferry.

                                                                Wonderful Family Vacation Home in Chilmark

                                                                Crisi E.Los Angeles

                                                                The perfect house for several families to share. The house sits on a ridge overlooking Chilmark pond and the private beach beyond. Complete privacy on expansive grounds with beautiful views. The accommodations are comfortable and allow for privacy. We cooked nearly every night and were impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was with tools, plates, and glasses. The large patio was a wonderful place to enjoy company and to watch the sunset. The access to the private beach was a wonderful bonus. We kayaked, sailed and motored over to the private beach amongst the swans on Chilmark Pond. The outdoor shower was a hit, too. The gracious hosts are kind and easy with which to communicate. We can't wait to return!

                                                                Our home is ideally located "Up-Island" in Chilmark. We are halfway between West Tisbury with Alley's Store and Beetlebung Corner, the crossroads of Chilmark with the Community Center and Library. The house is situated on ridge affording a spectacular sweeping view of the Atlantic Ocean. Large old oaks surrounding the property and we border a nature preserve. We access a private barrier beach over Chilmark Pond via a small flotilla of boats, (motor skiff & kayaks). The dock parking lot is down a dirt road less than a mile from the house.
