Chilmark is considered the most desirable town on the island because of its glorious beaches, restricted to the use of town residents and guests. It also has a wonderful Community Center, which provides camps and activities for kids as well as movies and other activities for adults. In near-by Menemsha, you'll find fish caught the same day that you can have cooked to order or bring back to make on the grill. Great restaurants include Home Port, the Chilmark Tavern, and State Road Restaurant. Be sure to stop at Chilmark Chocolates for mouthwatering treats!

Our house is on a dirt road which is well maintained but can get bumpy, especially after storms. We do not recommend cars that have especially low clearance.
Tennis courts are available in the neighborhood for a small extra charge.
Check-in time is 3:00 PM Saturday and check-out time is 10:00 AM Saturday. This is essential in order to have time for the house to be cleaned before each guest arrives!
