The house shares property with the owners home higher on the hill. The house is surrounded by two ponds, covered in pink and yellow water lillies. The area is scenic and has many walking and hiking trails, biking, boating in both Quitsa Pond and the adjoining Menemsha Pond, with access to the Atlantic Ocean


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We live on the property in a smaller house on the top of the hill and spend alot of time kayaking and swimming in the pond. Our adult children come often so Gaymark is only available for a few weeks each summer.

Why the Owner Chose Chilmark, MA, USA:
We spent many years coming to the vineyard; working our way from the busier west end to Chilmark. It is an exceptional property with a beach across the street, Lucy Vincent, considered by many to be one of the best beaches on the Vineyard, 2.5 miles away, room to spread out, with two exceptional ponds full of water lillies that bloom all summer. When we saw this property, we knew we had found the ideal summer house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The combination of an antique house, including a hearth that is said to have been rescued from an early ship that was almost lost nearby, antique details and furniture collected by my family from the 1950's. Yet it has a cook's kitchen, space to eat outside as well as inside, a lovely garden with a perennial border, outdoor shower. Amenities have all been upgraded in 2014, sheets, towels etc. It's a unique home
