About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, outdoor shower (Sleeps 5-6)

You can enjoy the Menemsha Sunsets from your own private deck. This summer cottage was converted from an early fishing shack in the 1900s. It is a lovely, classic island cottage. It has views of Menemsha Creek, Menemsha Harbor and Menemsha Beach. From our property you will see sailboats in Vineyard Sound, fishing boats in the Harbor, the Gay Head light, and the Elizabeth Islands. In and around the creek you will see blue herons, egrets, osprey and deer. Enjoy early morning walks to the harbor or along the beach. Spend the afternoon fishing, boating or swimming from a variety of beaches. You can end the day enjoying a dinner from the porch while watching a famous Menemsha sunset.

You have access to a local beach and two exclusive town beaches(for a fee): Lucy Vincent and Squibnocket. Also, you are a short walk and boat ride across the channel to Lobsterville Beach in the town of Aquinnah.

Sunset Cottage is a delightful and charming place to stay. The kitchen is big and a great place to congregate in/cook lobsters! and the most amazing sunsets can be seen from the porch. The outdoor shower is just the most wonderful way to commune with nature, and while all the bedrooms are nice, the master bedroom is just somehow perfect.

Perfect Location in Menemsha

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented the Sunset Camp for at least some portion of every year, since my now-adult children were toddlers. The rooms are large and comfortable and the charmingly rustic interior belies the fact that all conveniences, like washer/dryer, stove, cookware, linens, etc. are available. One feature, common to many homes on the Island, is an outdoor shower, but this one has a view that makes getting out of the shower a total delight.

The major feature, however, is the unbeatable location. While situated right in the heart of Menemsha , it’s surrounded on three sides by marsh, making it feel part of a separate world, populated only by egrets , other equally picturesque birds, and, perhaps the occasional deer. As the name implies, the Sunset Camp does have a glorious view of Menemsha’s famous sunsets. It’s always fun to enjoy that view from the porch while crowds on the beach, far in front, are jostling to get parking and beach spots to do so. Guests love to come for dinner on that porch!

The owners are and have always been terrific to work with. Barbara and her husband, John are always responsive to the needs of their renters. Barbara goes beyond just addressing complaints and questions; she often solicits suggestions for improvements.

I have only qualm about rating this as excellent in every way: I don’t want more competition!
