    Highly Recommend

    I absolutely adore this rustic and cozy place. It is where I have had the most heavenly nights' sleep... Maybe it's a combo of the quiet (except for the soothing buoy bell), a comfy bed, fresh air through the open window, and days of walking -- to Menemsha, to and along the North beach, and on the lanes and paths in the neighborhood). I highly recommend this property.

    The hosts were accommodating at all times

    My roommate and I were so glad we were able to rent the McGhee house on Martha's Vineyard. The house and accommodations were just right. The front porch was great for morning coffee or entertaining friends for cocktails. The entertaining and dining space between the two bedrooms, was roomy and comfortable. The outdoor shower was fabulous! It was easy to get to the local fish store, Larsen's, for take-out or sit on the crates to eat lobsters outside. The Chilmark Store was also close by for pizza, grocery items or newspaper. The hosts were accommodating at all times. show more show less

    FANTASTIC beach cottage in an ideal location

    My family has stayed in Susan's cottage for several years and only have positive things to say. The house is well-appointed (especially the kitchen!) and my kids love the outdoor space both front and back.

    It's hard to think of a more ideal location: being a short walk from Menemsha beach while also having a relatively secluded/quiet space up on the hill is so nice. The sunsets on the front porch are fantastic. This is a classic vineyard place and we look forward to returning!

    We've stayed at this house for two seasons in a row now and have thoroughly enjoyed it both times. It's a great spot, the setting is quiet with the front main room getting beautiful sun, breeze and a view.
    The owners are delightful, easy to work with and quick to respond to communications.
    We highly recommend it and plan to return!

    We spent two weeks in this lovely house and hope to return next year. The house is so beautifully situated, with a sea view of Menemsha and sunsets every evening from every room!
    Both bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable [the beds have comfortable mattresses] and the cheerful kitchen, 'though dated, has new appliances.
    The living room is tastefully decorated and has a long and cozy window bench which looks out onto the deck and a view of the sea,
    The owners made everything easy for us and it was a real pleasure to be guests in their home. show more show less

    My parents built the house in 1959 as a summer house after renting in Menemsha for twenty years! My wife and I have turned it into a year-round house and now live here full-time, renting it out for two months in the summer.

    What is special about this property?
    The house is wonderfully situated on a hillside overlooking Menemsha. The open sky, magnificent sunsets, fresh breezes and lovely sound of the bell buoys give it a peaceful feeling. There is something undemanding about the house, difficult to describe: It's not a fancy house but it has everything one needs to be comfortable.

    What is special about your town?
    There is a path down to Menemsha, about a fifteen minute walk, very useful, as it can often be difficult to park down there in the summer! Menemsha Public Beach is a nice place to swim, and you can always get an ice cream at the gas station or eat at the Galley, and of course there are the fish markets. If you don't feel like driving to Vineyard Haven for groceries there's the Chilmark Store close by and North Tabor Farm, both of which also have prepared foods as well as local produce and staples. The Chilmark Community Center has a summer day camp for kids, tennis courts, a chamber music series and a wonderful book fair. A lot to do!
