Description

AVAILABLE Sept 5-18. Tourists gone, fish are running. Paradise weeks on Martha’s Vineyard!!

Whether you're a single person, a couple, a family of three or four with an occasional visitor this rental could be perfect for you. The compound is at the end of a long driveway. There are three small buildings on this site and you can use them all. Stay as many weeks as you wish. The owner lives nearby.

The main building, the Guest Cottage, is a first-year rental. This winter saw a complete renovation of this comfortable cottage. Newly white-washed walls, a brand new staircase, floors redone with eco-friendly products, a state-of-the-art Renai on-demand hot water heater, and mini-split AC all make this cottage special. It provides a living area, well-equipped kitchen including a dishwasher, and a shower/tub/washer dryer bathroom. There's a door in the bathroom leading to an outside shower hidden in a maze of privet hedge.

Upstairs is a space separated into two sections by the staircase with a queen bed on one side and a knee wall separating the queen from two twin beds. A ceiling fan keeps the air moving and the temperature of the air from the mini-split can be raised or lowered for your comfort. Blackout shades encourage sleeping in. This place has island connections. Wood harvested from the site of the original Agricultural Hall off island provide floor boards and framing and beams from an Alley's Store renovation in the 90s bring history to the cottage.

A second building, the Art Shack, offers supplies for art projects, comfy chairs, a fainting couch and a long table to use for reading/writing/puzzle building or any other project you can imagine. There's a shed roof behind the Art Shack where you can leave your bicycles to keep them out of the weather. You'll find beach chairs and an umbrella here. There are even some fishing rods hanging on the wall. This insulated building stays cool with a window air conditioner. The Art Shack faces the Guest Cottage's bathroom door so there's easy access.

The Littlest Cottage provides an extra queen bed for overnight visitors. Again, a window air conditioner keeps the temperature comfortable for sleeping. There's a bureau to store visitors' clothes. This building also faces the Guest Cottages bathroom door and outdoor shower.

The yard surrounding these buildings is well-maintained and sprayed regularly with essential oils to discourage outside pests. There's a table for eating, a Weber gas grill for cooking your favorite meal and chairs for lounging. Soon the strawberries will be rosy red in the garden and after them come peas, beans and flowers for picking. Whatever is there is yours to share. There is a collection of outdoor activities - Badminton, croquet, horseshoes and bocce balls - to set up and use. A circular swing invites children to sway in the breeze. The yard is mowed regularly and perennial beds take turns showing off their blooms.

At the beginning of the driveway there's a small sign that says ''Trail.'' This is an entrance to a network of Sheriff's Meadow trails which lead to others sponsored by different island conservation organizations. You can use the App TrailsMV to navigate your walk. These trails bring you through oak woods being infiltrated by young beech trees; views of the ocean and the sound of waves cause you to pause; you may pass fields, blooming gardens and grazing herds. If you're already a walker, this is paradise. If you're new to walking, a babbling brook will get you hooked. This location allows you to walk without driving.

With the lease comes permission from the town of Chilmark to purchase stickers for Lucy Vincent and Squibnocket Beaches. Menemsha Beach is free to all.

At the nearby Chilmark Community Center, camp is available for children, and tennis for all members of the family with a tennis membership which you can purchase. The Chilmark Store porch is a great place to enjoy lunch or pick up a picnic and pack it for the beach. Next door is the Chilmark Tavern which has begun indoor dining for dinner again this year. Mmmmm good!

Sunset at Menemsha Beach is famous because it's fabulous. Order ahead lobsters, clams, oysters and a bag of mussels from Larsen's Fish Market in Menemsha; or if you prefer, stand in line and order on the spot. Feeling too tired for an adventure? Then you can bring your delicacies home, but if you have energy left after a day of beach and swimming, walk down to Menemsha Beach, set up your chairs and enjoy. You can amble along the jetty or the dock after you eat and wait for the sun to go down. Craving dessert? Hike over the hill to The Galley and enjoy ice cream - a cone or a Sundae for you? When sunset finally happens, get your hands ready and applaud the beauty along with everyone else. It's a thrill to be a part of it all.

    The Perfect Vineyard Getaway

    I've stayed all over the island for many years and this is my favorite rental. It's cozy, warm, has every amenity, is private and centrally located in Chilmark, the best place to be on the island. The house adjoins a gorgeous network of trails. It's a ten minute drive to your coffee and croissant or lobster roll at Menemsha. You won't hear anything but a chorus of birds and wind in the trees. There are three buildings including the cottage, a small detached bedroom and a playroom for the kids, which also works as an office. All are fully air conditioned. Sheila, the owner, is out of sight up the hill but ready to help you within minutes. I strongly recommend this rental despite the fact you may book weeks I'll want myself. So don't act too quickly! show more show less

    Dreamy Guest Cottage

    We had the best time in this sweet Chilmark cottage. The home and garden were not only relaxing and beautiful but had everything we needed. Sheila was an amazing host and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. I hope we're lucky enough to find ourselves back here soon!

    I enjoy sharing the Guest Cottage with ''my renters''. I appreciate the care they give it and how they comment on how clean and welcoming it is upon their arrival. It gives me pleasure that they enjoy the house and grounds. This property hardens back to days when little summer camps dotted the island, with new and old friends and family returning year after year.

    What is special about this property?
    The Guest Cottage, Art Shack, Littlest House along with the surrounding yard and gardens are a magical place. Waking up in the morning to the sound of birds chirping is nature's meditation. Perhaps an early morning walk on Sheriff's Meadow trails and then a quick drive to Lucy Vincent for a swim are how you spend your morning. Lunch might be a picnic from the Chilmark Store or something delicious from 7A Takout in West Tisbury. A visit to Gray Barn gives you a chance to buy fresh meat for dinner with a salad made for their freshest greens. You might take in a show at The Yard or just watch the Sunset in Menemsha. Before you go to bed, please step outside and listen. You can hear the lapping of the waves against the shore. You'll have the best sleep in the Guest House with the temperature controlled by a mini-split. Whether you're a late sleeper or an early riser, you'll awake refreshed, ready for another day in paradise.
