About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

FERRY Reservations available for several weeks.

CANCELLATION POLICY: A FULL refund will be given, if we are able to re-rent the canceled week.

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.

My husband and I recently rented this cottage to fish the derby it was perfect for us. Just a short stroll to the beach, jetties, fish markets and The Bite. Barbara and John are the perfect host! I made a new best friend their Lab Maggie! If you are looking for a laid back vacation cottage this one is for you. If you do venture out The Atlantic Seafood and Steak Restaurant in Edgartown has some great food try their calamari fries.
