Property description

Stay in the charming and historic fishing village of Menemsha. This quaint cottage is located a stones throw from the Menemsha Harbor. It is the smallest and most affordable of the three houses we rent, yet offers great views.

Walk out your door and across the street to the harbor. Stroll the dock and end up at the beach to enjoy the sunsets...or you can stay right at home and enjoy the sunsets from the living room. Menemsha village has a grocery store, restaurants, fish markets, shops and a wonderful family beach all in walking distance. Bus service is also available to take you to other parts of the island.

This cottage is comfortable for a couple or a single person. Also, all renters living in town have access to two exclusive beaches for a fee: Squibnocket and Lucy Vincent.
