About the property

Unique Elegance in Chilmark

This Mid Century house offers resort-type elegance as well as a relaxed beachhouse vibe. I call it Hollywood in flip flops....The location is totally private but near world-class beaches and the much-adored Menemsha fishing village. You will love the all-day shimmer of the pool. Chilmark is magic. You will build memories here that will last a lifetime.

Four bedrooms, three baths, a large living area, large master bedroom with bath. Fully equipped kitchen/dining overlooking the pool. Quality linens.

A 4’ deep spa pool invites you to exercise, lounge or play...

The house is bathed in sun and dramatic sky all day. Miles of conservation trails are steps outside the door. Besides exclusive access to white sand beaches, this secluded end of Martha's Vineyard offers a wide range of activities from story hour to lectures and from fishing to fine dining.

Ferry tickets available for Labor Day weekend.

Secluded Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property with pool, nice layout, and private seclusion; it was perfect for our family and friends. Upon arrival we met the owner who was lovely. We needed her help one time during our stay. She was prompt with her response and fixed the issue. The house was clean and well maintained. We used the kitchen for almost every meal and it was well equipped for a family to use. We would definitely go back!

Experience Chilmark

  • 5 of 5

An airy getaway with plenty of distant ocean breezes to sooth the soul on a hot day. The pool, though not deep, was a delight, and the master bedroom and living room were especially spacious. A central perch for visiting anywhere on the island.

Gorgeous house, secluded setting

  • 5 of 5

I am a dance artist who stayed here during a residency at The Yard. The house is immaculate and the owner has beautiful taste in furnishings. The kitchen has everything you need. How wonderful to have a pool to plunge in after a day at the nearby beach! The property is quiet and far from the road, so nights are peaceful and you wake up to bird song and the wind rustling the trees. There are plenty of amenities nearby but you get peace and quiet here.

Magical Stay in Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

This property really impressed me! My group was looking for a spacious house with a pool and this property delivered. The overall house layout is great for entertaining with two separate wings for the bedrooms. The kitchen is a wonderful hangout area inside due to all the windows - it feels like you are still outside. The pool area and yard were fantastic, offering constant sunlight through the day and more than enough area to sun by the pool, play games, etc. The best part of it....you feel like you are doing it all on the island alone because the property is so secluded!. Also the property was very clean when we arrived.

Harriet, the owner, was so easy to deal with and did not bother us at all once on the island. She does live close by if there are any problems, but lets her guest enjoy their time alone. She was very easy on the details of the rental and provided a clear contract for rent. We felt compelled to invite her over because she was so gracious!

Perfect relaxing base to enjoy the best of Up Island!

  • 5 of 5

This house provided us the best retreat during the Vineyard's busy season with great access to Lucy Vincent Beach, Allie's Store, Menemsha and Aquinnah. This a the most beautiful part of the island and Harriet's house is in a quiet natural setting apart from the crowds. The layout of the house is great for families and shares with bedrooms spread around the perimeter of the house and a bright kitchen and comfortable living room in the center. The deck and pool are great bonuses on those days you just don't want to get in the car to head to the beach but still want to enjoy the summer weather.

Chillmark bliss

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here Sept 1-8, 2015. It was an incredibly relaxing and lovely stay. The house is secluded on a quite road but easily accessible at the same time. I loved going for a long walsk on the local nature trails nearby. We also are huge beach goers, so to be so close to Lucy Vincent was a plus. The house has a wonderful lay out with incredible light in the kitchen and porch area for meals. Also the living room has a great place for a daytime nap along the bay window. The kitchen was easy to use and quite clean. The master bedroom was spacious with tons of windows which made it wonderful for sleeping. Also it had good storage and its own bathroom. The pool is a lovely option for a quick dip in the morning or at night before bedtime beneath a huge starry sky. Chillmark is a magical place and its great because there are very few people around! I highly recommend this rental!
