We have been coming to this extraordinary place for the last 8 years and the fundamental reason that we keep returning is that we believe that this home simply does not have an equivalent – by a long shot. Simply put, Chilmark and specifically Lucy Vincent Beach are tremendously serene and beautiful and are removed from the more congested and busy portions of the island, and this home places you right where you want to be in Chilmark - on Lucy Vincent Beach.
We used to rent in the Chilmark woods and had to obtain a pass to Lucy Vincent Beach and drive to the beach, forcing adherence to hours of operation when the gate was open and staffed. With this home and its location on Chilmark Pond and Lucy Vincent Beach, you have unfettered and direct access, affording you the ability to walk the beach in the morning at sunrise or spend a quiet afternoon or early evening on the beach. This south shore beach has limited access so it is not overcrowded, the waves are great for boards, and it's very picturesque. We believe that it is by far one of the best beaches on the island.
The house is perfect for a family, with a great room and deck overlooking the pond and beach. Views, tranquility and nature abound, it’s a perfect peaceful retreat. We appreciate the simplicity, spaciousness, and cleanliness of the house, and all necessary amenities are present in the home including an outdoor shower perfect for after the beach. This house is amazingly private, the only noise you hear are the waves and birds. The owners have always been nothing but a pleasure to work with over the years, always accommodating and communicative.
The village of Menemsha is only a few miles away with awesome seafood, fishing and evening sunsets. Chilmark's library and tennis courts are a short drive or walk away, and other amenities such as Ally’s General Store, Chilmark Store and Chilmark Chocolates are easily accessible to this location, though you may not want to pull yourself away from this special place.
