Description

Description

Relax at this retreat in the woods when you are not spending time on Lucy Vincent Beach or enjoying the sunset down the road in Menemsha. Surrounded by stone walls and walking paths over 20 acres of woods, this spacious three bedroom house is next to a stream (with a campfire ring) and is cut off from the world down a quarter-mile driveway. After a day on the deck or at the beach, enjoy the rustic outdoor shower.

If you are looking for a private spot, this secluded retreat with lush greenery and simple elegance will rejuvenate your spirits. A long private driveway leads to ample parking for this charming New England house.

''The property has so much private land that it was a true getaway. Lucy Vincent beach is just over a mile away and it is now our favorite beach ever. Menemsha sunsets are beautiful with a bite to eat from one of the fish markets. We can't wait to come back!'' Review from Natalie G.

This light filled home with wide open spaces sleeps 6. The main level includes a master bedroom with a queen size bed, a quiet room with futon couch surrounded by a library, and a bathroom with a full size tub (no shower). The open floor plan includes a spacious and sunny living room with various couches and a cozy stove for the occasional cool nights, a piano, a large dining room table, and an open kitchen with a new fridge, earthen dishware, coffeemaker, microwave, blender, toaster, and a fondue set. The entryway stores all shoes and coats out of the way. A separate laundry room with washer and dryer is well stocked with environmentally-friendly laundry detergent. In a hallway closet, a sound system harbors many vinyl records and is connected to speakers in the main room. The second floor has two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed, another room with two twin beds. There is a second floor bathroom with a step-in shower. Each bedroom has an air conditioning window unit.

The outdoor living space is breathtaking, comprised of a deck off the kitchen, with a large table and seating for 6, a grill, enclosed hot and cold outdoor shower, and a large lawn area. Our hammock is ideal for an afternoon nap or diving into one of the many books from the house. A tire swing brings playful charm. Interesting mossy stone walls border the lawn area to the wild wooded area beyond. A few steps into the woods, a trail leads to a stream and benches around a fire ring fit for a cozy campfire and perfect for s'mores and singalongs. Trails and a small foot bridge across a bubbling stream are ideal for contemplative walks.

This property is only minutes away from Menemsha Beach with its famous sunsets, Lucy Vincent Beach, the Chilmark public library with many public programs for all ages, and a short drive to the legendary West Tisbury General store. Art galleries, town beaches and many restaurants nearby will keep everyone entertained. Short drive to Cronig’s supermarket.

We use only environmentally friendly cleaning supplies, allergen free bedding and have all hardwood floors.

Renters are eligible for passes to Lucy Vincent Beach. Beach towels included. Wifi is through Starlink at 50-100 Mbps.

    Chilmark respite

    It was our good fortune to be able to stay at this well-equipped Chilmark home nestled into the heart of the Vineyard. The home was the right respite for our over planned day-to-day. Our family of four (kids' aged 6 and 8) enjoyed star gazing, pumpkin picking (and carving), beach going (Menemsha, Lucy Vincent, Philbin, Moshup, Jetty and Chappy, too), wildlife watching (ospreys, hermit crabs, turkeys and turtles) and eating delicacies from Chilmark General Store, Morning Glory Farm and Orange Peel Bakery among others. We came with few plans and left feeling rested and fulfilled. Our hosts treated us as special guests with personal touches such as fresh flowers, a Vineyard-themed puzzle and welcome card. They even surprised us with a thoughtful birthday gift. What a welcome that makes us want to return. We found the Vineyard and Vineyarders down-to-earth, kind and open-hearted. show more show less

    Best rental ever

    This is such a lovely home. Well appointed with a great kitchen and comfortable beds. Very clean yet homey. The grounds are beautiful with a little path through the woods over spongy moss to a hidden fire pit and flowing stream. The silent drive connects to a main road that goes to a fabulous local grocery with delicious healthy meals and bakeries, fish stores and beaches. Menenmsha is minutes away with fresh fish and a local beach
    The outdoor shower was a special delight after a day at Lucy Vincent Beach. Snuggling up on the couch in the well appointed library was a nightly treat.
    Nan and Warren are respectful and delightful.
    We spent a truly carefree week at Martha's Vineyard. Thank you.

    Beyond Perfect

    This house exceeded our expectations. The house is spacious, beautiful, and equipped with every amenity. The property is amazing with a giant yard for children to run and play. The location is perfect for going to Lucy Vincent and Menemsha. The family had a memorable vacation and we are looking forward to renting it again next year. The homeowners are gracious hosts. Overall, it was a perfect vacation and we enjoyed all of the splendor MV has to offer.

    We All Loved It

    Our family of five stayed here for two weeks. We loved the proximity to our favorite beaches, as well as the sense of seclusion (even though it's a 1/2 mile to the Chilmark Store).

    Nan and Warren were excellent hosts - responsive and respectful. Their home is warm and welcoming.

    A Lovely week in late July

    The Doty house is wonderful and homey. The Doty's are extremely responsive and lovely owners. Because we were moving from another rental, we asked the Doty's if we could leave our suitcases with them until check-in. They also provided us with a refrigerator for our perishables. That was a real gift.

    We wanted a drying rack for wet clothes and within a few minutes a large wooden one was on the porch. It was perfect.

    I loved the eco friendly products for laundry and dishwashing. We loved the music we could play from older records. Also, the library had the most interesting books. The TV worked extremely well and we able to follow shows we love.

    It is a fine place in a rustic wooded setting right near a running creek.

    We loved our stay in Chilmark. The property was beautiful and full of little nooks inside and out to explore and relax. The library is fantastic — everyone found something interesting for them. The grounds are gorgeous we had a great time relaxing outside. The property was spotless clean and well sanitized. Hope to come back next year!

The owners are wonderful, friendly and kind who made sure everything was just perfect. The property has so much private land that it was a true getaway.

    I am a graduate of Chilmark Elementary School and Martha's Vineyard Regional High and now live in Philadelphia. This is the house I grew up in and that my parents still live in over the winter.

    My mother is a certified Tai Chi instructor, retired school teacher who taught in West Tisbury, Oak Bluffs and was the education director for the Wampanoag Tribe. (You can book her for a Tai Chi or Qigong session on the sunny deck!) My father ran a wholesale fish company, Menemsha Basin Seafood, and still does work at the oyster hatchery.

    Our family has been renting houses off and on in Chilmark for over 20 years. Assistance with any problems you might encounter is only a few minutes away.

    What is special about this property?
    Built in 1980, this house is tucked away in the woods. If your goal is to get away from the world but still be close to great beaches, restaurants and grocery stores then you will be glad you spent your vacation in our house. At night, you can look up at a sky full of stars and sometimes hear the distant clang of the bouy guiding boats into Menemsha.

    What is special about your town?
    Let's start with the beaches: Lucy Vincent is one of the most beautiful beaches you will ever visit with ocean waves that are often perfect for boogie boards and body surfing (and is only available to residents and renters in Chilmark), Squibnocket is a hidden gem that is open for dog walkers in the morning and Menemsha Beach offers calm waters looking on the Sound, a lifeguard and spectacular sunsets.

    Menemsha is a working fishing village with restaurants, piers to walk, a jetty to fish off of and two fish stores that will cook a lobster for your picnic on the beach.

    The Chilmark General Store is a local hangout that has groceries and pizza served with rustic charm.
    The Chilmark Community Center offers a camp for youngsters, tennis for all ages, movie night, yoga, zumba, bird walks and more. The Chilmark Public Library is chock full of beach reads and has a particularly good collection of mystery books (and yes, you can get a library card as a renter!). At the edge of town, Grey Barn Farm offers locavores organic meat, produce and fresh baked bread. We also have several art galleries and a dance troupe at The Yard.
