Perfect Location, Wonderful Up Island Cottage
We had an amazing three weeks in Chilmark in this lovely cottage. Richard and Danielle are the perfect hosts, readily attentive and at the same time giving us the privacy we were after. The location is perfect with the best beach access and a quick drive to shops, restaurants and activities for the kids. Not easy to find such a great place at such a reasonable price on this part of the island. We would definitely rent again. Such a treat!
I have been visiting Chilmark for over 10 years and this is by far my favorite place we have stayed. To start, the owners, Danielle and Richard are wonderful to deal with. The cottage is pure Chilmark perfection with it’s charming yet nautical decor. The location is absolutely wonderful as it is very close to Menemsha, Chilmark store and community center. Renting the cottage also allows you access to the Vineyard’s most beautiful beaches and the lush trees around the property allow for a great sense of calm after a day at the beach. Comfortable beds, awesome hammock and outdoor shower are other perks! We are very excited to have booked this property for a third summer and are counting the days until we return! Thank you!
Adorable Cottage, Beautiful Setting
This cottage is set amongst the lushness and privacy that seems to define Chilmark. It is decorated very tastefully and feels very cozy and inviting. It faces west so in the afternoon to evening the sun streams in making it feel like a beach house. The kitchen is small but is well-stocked. The deck is lovely so we ate outside most nights. And the hammock a very nice touch. The cottage was super clean when we arrived. As another mentioned, the main house is nearby but it feels very private here.
I would only recommend this house for a family or a very close group.. It was perfect for us with 2 adults and our 2 children.
Every day we walked down to Menemsha Beach...it's about 2 miles each way and it's a lovely walk on dirt roads and very pretty views. We also went to Lucy Vincent Beach daily...you can buy a sticker for your car....it is a beautiful beach! I highly recommend it.
This was our first visit to MV, so we're not experts, but I have a feeling Chilmark is the place to be if you want to be away from the crowds and enjoy a very simple, quiet, and relaxing vacation. There are a few great restaurants nearby.
Up island atmosphere in Chilmark cottage
We loved this 2-bedroom cottage. Danielle was a very accomodating and a gracious hostess. Great porch and hammock. Comfortable beds. Outside shower. We did not use the loft. Suggest turning out lights and closing door when you leave in the evening as it is in the woods. This cottage is near the main house but foliage provides privacy. We highly recommend as an alternative to hotel or bed and breakfast.
