About the Property

Enjoy Total Privacy and Unique Up Island Relaxed Elegance in Chilmark

What’s to love about a beach house? How about a house that is lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean, wakes up to a symphony of birds and watches the sky all day through windows and ceiling-to-floor panels of glass.

This mid-Century beach house stands quietly among the Chilmark treetops. World-Class Lucy Vincent Beach, its white sand, dramatic dunes and soft sand, waits for you just minutes down the road to the left; the quaint fishing village of Menemsha will attend to your fresh fish needs down the road to the right. The house, bathed in sun and dramatic sky all day, is blessed by the sound of the ocean at night. Miles of conservation trails are steps outside the door. This secluded piece of nature has lots more to offer as well. Chilmark offers a wide range of activities in season from summer camp to chamber music. Rent a paddle board or kayak, or take a sunset cruise. Hire a fishing captain and his boat for some deep sea casting. Enjoy story hour or art shows or a host of lectures at the library; yoga and an occasional square dance and various cultural events at The Community Center. Fine dining at The Beach Plum Inn or Chilmark Tavern — but BYOB, it’s a dry town! Whatever your pleasure is, Chilmark can probably deliver with satisfaction.


Four bedrooms, three baths, a large living area, ample laundry room and an open kitchen/dining make up the interior of the house. Furnished and decorated with the ease and comfort of summer in mind, Relax will be your top priority . Wood floors, a fully equipped kitchen, all quality towels and sheets add to the appeal of this rental. Shower off in the roomy outdoor shower plumbed for hot and cold water, at the end of a sandy day on the beach.

A 4’ deep spa pool invites you to exercise, lounge or play in its shimmering water. Watch the colored underwater lights turn from red to blue to green at night. Starlight in Chilmark is something to behold.

And we haven’t even mentioned Chilmark Chocolates! It’s the most empowering chocolate experience in the world. Any doubters? Bring 'em on. Closed for the very height of the season. Just got to be too much to handle. How's that for integrity??? Reason enough to book in Spring and Fall. Ummmh!
