We spent our last week of summer vacation staying in Mary's beautiful home. The setting is everything we imagined with an up-island retreat. A quiet dirt road leads you to a private location surrounded by nearby hiking, running, and dog-walking trails. In the evenings it was only a short drive to watch the sunset at Menemsha or Aquinnah. The beach at Lucy Vincent is stunning and never too overcrowded, and Chilmark Store is close enough for any items we needed.
The exterior and grounds of the cottage have everything you need to relax: flower gardens, hammock, Adirondack chairs, grill, maintained yard, clothes line for wet towels, outdoor shower, and storage for bikes, etc. The interior of the cottage is bright and spotless with every possible convenience available. The rooms are spacious and there is more than enough storage to keep your belongings organized. What stood out for us is even though this is a weekly rental property, Mary provides her guests with the quality of products that one may have at home, beautiful rugs, artwork and decor, comfortable furniture and bedding, and every possible kitchen appliance and dining necessity to relax at home with meals if desired.
Upon arriving, Mary checked to see if we needed anything and offered information on our surroundings to help us enjoy our time to the fullest. She is very caring and considerate or her guests and our family hopes to return many times!
