About The Owner

We are self-employed, dog owners and world travelers. Martha's Vineyard is perhaps one of the nicest places to relax in the world!

Great fishing too!

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Chilmark

We have been visiting the Vineyard since the early 70's - always renting. Buying a place just made sense because we always wanted to come back. We were looking at another property for sale when we looked up the hill and saw this beautiful house with a deck running the entire length of the house. As it turned out, the realator showed us the place the next day! We were delighted!!!

What makes this house unique

Peace and quiet,,, star-filled heavens..... deer and wild turkeys......minutes from Menemsha and good fishing.... lounging on the deck with sun or shade all day long.

Nestled in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I arrived with three adult children, their spouses, and six grandchildren in two--and discovered that because of the size and layout of the house there was ample room for all. The great room is lit by three or four glass doors that lead to the deck that runs the length of the back of the house. Lots of light for reading, for board games, even for an early dinner at the dining room table that seats eight comfortably. The kitchen had plenty of shelf space, a counter that wrapped around and provided room for multiple "cooks," and a table for six (we used it for breakfast and for the kids' dinner). My wife and I took one master bedroom, our younger daughter and her family, including a baby who needed quiet for naps, took the other at the far end of the house (their older children slept in the nearby loft). Our older children took the two bedrooms on the second floor and additional grandchildren slept on the futons in the open lofts. Plenty of room to gather, plenty of room to slip away for a few minutes of quiet.

IN our week on Martha's VIneyard we tried three or four different beaches, public and private. Perhaps the most beautiful was Lucy Vincent Beach--and it had the best surf as well. But be aware that you will be able to buy a pass for one vehicle to park at Lucy Vincent. That's not such a big deal since the other beaches are stunningly beautiful in their own ways.

We are a family of seafood eaters and by the end of the week workers in the fish markets in nearby Menemsha (15 minutes) came to recognize us on sight. If you go, don't miss the chance to get your seafood right off the boats.

Had a wonderful week here and would go back in a New York Minute.

Great place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for a short stay in June 2011, and found it to be the perfect place for a large group of people to spend time on the vineyard.

What I loved:

- full of light and air

- many bathrooms

- plenty of space for gathering as a group, but also space for people to have privacy

- there are screen doors from virtually every ground floor room to the porch or the outside.

- fireplace

- even though this house is in chillmark, it is not all the way up island, so you're still pretty close to the airport, edgartown, vineyard haven, etc.

What to know:

- the house is in the woods, not on the beach. You must drive to the beach.

- if you don't have a car on your trip, this house might not be the best

- the nearest store is a few miles away
