About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4 + cot for an additional child)

Tucked away, with breathtaking views over salt marshes and Menemsha Pond, this bright and airy 2-bedroom contemporary is a retreat to feed the soul.

An open kitchen/living/dining room (and full bath)-- newly painted and furnished -- has stunning views and incomparable sunsets. The house has decks with views off both living and sleeping areas.

Attached by a deck to the living room, a wing for sleeping has 1 Queen and 2 twin beds (plus a cot available on request) and a half-bath. Altogether, there are 1.5 baths and a beautiful, new outdoor shower.

A secret path out the back gives quick access on foot to the beach and fishing village of Menemsha, where you will find coffee, papers, food and fun. Passes for Lucy Vincent and Squibnocket beaches are available.

Fully equipped, including new bedding and towels, Scrabble and cards. This is the perfect place to let the layers of stress melt away.

About Susan Dickler

We are part-time Vineyarders who fell in love with this cottage. We are on the island, in our home in W. Tisbury, during the rental season. Some day we may use it full time, but for now need to rent it to cover our expenses.

Susan Dickler purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Susan Dickler chose Menemsha

Our property combines the simple lifestyle of a '50s cottage with the modern architecture and furnishing of a contemporary summer house. With two decks and a front yard, there is real privacy as well as the convenience of being a five-minute walk to town.

Charming, quaint, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful gem of a cottage tucked in the heart of Menemsha. Felt like we had stepped back in time staying in this very special place. We truly enjoyed our stay in this very charming cottage. We loved the set up of the house, the decor and the overall vibe. (Plus access to beach + Kayaks were great!)

Would absolutely recommend this to family of 4-5 or a couple looking for a romantic getaway. Can't go wrong with this cottage.
