Description

Description

Fully equipped, open floor plan, contemporary three bedroom, two bath house on three acres surrounded on three sides by the Fulling Mill Conservation land. Immediate access to wonderful walking trails. Situated among trees with view of meadow and 200 to 300 year old stone walls. Quiet, private neighborhood.

Note: For 2016 we have changed rental periods Saturday to Saturday!

Access to Lucy Vincent Beach is available from our second property on Upper Chilmark Pond where parking and a canoe are available for short paddle across the pond. So no parking pass is required and you don't have to worry about the public parking to Lucy Vincent Beach being full. (Public parking there is expensive and very limited.)

Two queen size and two twin beds plus pull-out sofa. Linens), paper goods, soaps and kitchen supplies are provided.

Wonderful getaway in the spring and fall as there is a real fireplace (firewood provided) and the house is heated.

The house is less than three miles from the charming, picturesque fishing harbor of Menemsha and its restaurants and fish market (Larsen's...our favorite!).

Loved everything about this house

My family had a wonderful stay at this house. It was comfortable, equipped with everything we could possibly need, and is located in a beautiful, peaceful setting. The owners were incredibly helpful and responsive before and during our visit. Our kids loved taking the canoe out on the pond to see the sheep and run around on Lucy Vincent. I highly recommend this lovely, homey house.

Happy, peaceful home

There is a feeling to this place that pictures can't convey, and it's one of being far from the madding crowd. The deck looks out on a large meadow and many times, we could hear the ocean roaring in the distance. Nature feels dominant here with trails winding through the beautiful woods of the Fulling Mill Book Preserve. Beware the ticks, especially with dogs, but that is true everywhere in the NE now. You hardly every hear car traffic, something I really appreciate, as you enter down a small, winding dirt road to get to the driveway of the house. For beach access, you can drive a short distance and hop in a canoe provided by the owners that will launch you across a small tidal pond to the vast Atlantic and to Lucy Vincent Beach, which has restricted public access. This little trip feels more like a fun adventure than a hassle because what you see as you cross is beautiful in every direction.

As for the inside, it feels like you are house-sitting for a friend as the owners have stocked it with most everything you'd have at home, and they have chosen quality dishes, furniture, decorations, sheets, etc. It feels homey and cared for. The owners were great, kind, and very responsive, and I wish I could return right about NOW.

Fulling Mill

This property is beautiful and vast. There were often deer and rabbits in the yard which my three year old loved. Sadly the interior was fairly uncomfortable. Both of the beds on the main floor had such terrible mattresses that we had to buy a pad for one which we left (you're welcome!). The furniture in the living room is basically wicker and very uncomfortable. Admittedly, I am 7 months pregnant so comfort is high on my list of priorities. I also understand this is a rental and we have stayed in many on the island but even so this one feels like it may need a little interior updating (new mattresses, new kitchen items, etc...).

The owners are very responsive and helpful. However, when we arrived one of the screens on the french doors leading out to the deck was ripped open and remained that way for the entire 2 weeks of our stay. This was unfortunate since the house gets a little warm (no AC) and having those doors open really allows for a breeze to come through.

Overall, this is a beautiful spot and offers all the charms of the island and Chilmark but we likely won't stay there again.

Owner Response:

We're so sorry to hear of your disappointment, Terra. This is the first complaint we have had about the mattresses. Moreover, we stay there in the spring to open this and our other Vineyard (guest)house, ID 13169, and find them very comfortable for our old, octogenarian bones. We will check with other renters and if there is a hint of a problem, we'll replace them. We thank you for purchasing the pad and are more than happy to compensate you! Please let us know the cost.

We agree about the wicker furniture and this spring had the cushions completely replaced on the couch. True, we could replace some of the kitchen items but we're thrifty New Englanders (living in Colorado) and hate to throw out perfectly usable equipment. That said, we will check on this when next at the Vineyard and will remove or replace those items that should be replaced.

As for the torn screen, we immediately called a handyman friend to replace it as soon as we heard from the tenants. He said he would get right on it but did not. A call to another repairman resulted the same way. A third attempt was a charm. We now have a new, more reliable repairman on call.

For what it's worth, we paid for the cleaning at the end of this rental ($180.) to compensate the tenants for the inconvenience of the torn screen. (This is the first we heard about the other complaints.)

Fulling Mill House

This was our second year staying at the house and we have nothing but good things to say. If you want a quiet, well-equipped up island rental close to Menemsha, Lucy Vincent Beach and Squibnocket, this is the place. The back deck, overlooking fields and woodland, is wonderful for a read, a glass of wine, or both! We hope to return.

Perfect for the entire family!

I stayed at this beautiful home with my family over the July 4th holiday week. We all felt so lucky to be hidden and sheltered from the craziness of this holiday time. The home is very private, yet close to the beaches, shops, walking trails, etc. We had 3 generations of family together to celebrate a very special reunion, and I would not have chosen any other place to be. Everyone felt very comfortable and at ease. Plenty of room for the relaxing grandparents all the way to the energetic preschoolers. The owners really opened up their "home" for us (and made us feel like locals). I can't wait to return! show more show less

Your quintessential Martha's Vineyard home - bliss!

I live in New York full time, and my trip to Martha's Vineyard, staying in this charming home was like oxygen for my soul and mind. From the outdoor hammock; to the porch overlooking the garden; and the heavenly, just heavenly, outdoor shower, this home is about as peaceful and relaxing as it can get. It's incredibly private and serene, you will hear only the sounds of nature from the moment you wake up to the moment you close your eyes at night. I remember a special evening, sitting on the porch watching all the fireflies light up the garden - it was just magical. There are great trails to explore and hike through, which is especially marvelous if you have a dog! I absolutely loved my stay there and can't wait to return. The home is kept in wonderful condition - it has a slightly rustic feel to it; imagine beautiful wooden floorboards and furniture. The property is your quintessential Martha's Vineyard escape! The owners are just the nicest folks you'll ever meet too! show more show less

Spacious and relaxing home in a beautiful setting

We love staying in this incredibly charming and spacious home. It’s located within a beautiful nature preserve that is perfect for long walks, bike rides, or simply sitting outside on the large outside deck and enjoying the views. We have stayed at the home on several occasions, and always find it extremely clean and well-equipped to suit the needs of our entire family. We look forward to returning for many more years to come. If you would like to speak to me personally about our experiences, feel free to call me at 941-400-4828. show more show less

Originally from Connecticut, we have been coming to the Vineyard since we were children. We met here and spent our honeymoon not far from our cottage's location. We love this island and brought our children here any time I could get a 30 day leave during my 25 year career in the U.S. Air Force.

In fact, in 1999 John wrote a history of the settlement of Harthaven, part of Oak Bluffs, reflecting six generations of our family's association with the Vineyard.

What is special about this property?
We designed this cottage purposely to reflect the Vineyard's ''shack'' feeling, like the one nearby where we spent our honeymoon.

And then we built it ourselves in 2000-01 with the expert help of one of our sons, excepting the electrical, plumbing and fireplace work. It is fully winterized and therefore nice and cozy in the early spring and late fall.

There is a large lawn for kids play, croquet, etc. The included canoe and two kayaks are perfect for not only getting to Lucy Vincent Beach but also to explore Chilmark Pond.

What is special about your town?
Chilmark is such a contrast to ''down island'' which becomes frenzied in July and August. Its old stone walls, views over lovely meadows and the ocean are so unique. There is a very active Community Center just over a mile away with all sorts of activities for children...and adults, including tennis courts.
