Property Description

Of all the places on Martha's Vineyard, Chilmark is the most desirable. Of all the areas in Chilmark, the fishing village of Menemsha is the most desirable. Menemsha is a postcard of New England fishing and whaling villages. Quaint shops, great food, fresh fish (raw and cooked), and of course, the one gas station that also sells fishing equipment and ice cream. Watch the fishing trawlers come in early in the morning and experience the sun set magnificently in the evening. (Menemsha harbor beach is one of the few places on the East Coast where you can see the sun set in the ocean, figure that one out). Mememsha is a quiet sound beach, perfect for small children or just relaxing. And all of this is about a 10 minute walk down the hill from the cottage. Lucy Vincent beach, which is only available to Chilmark residents and rental guest, is spectacular and only a couple of miles from the cottage.

The Cottage: The cottage is extremely cozy and tastefully decorated. It is fully furnished with plenty of cooking utensils, pots and pans, silverware and dishware. Bring your own linens, there are plenty of extra blankets and pillows. The couch is basically a twin bed and there is a queen blowup bed for an extra guest. There are plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and beach toys. There are some children toys as well as games such as scrabble, cards, Boccie Ball, croquet, etc.

There is an extensive library of books for all ages and interests as well as a video library with close to a hundred movies for the TV and DVD player. Full broadband wireless internet access and free phone use within the USA. There is a great outdoor shower for those returns from the beach in addition to the full inside bathroom. The property is nicely landscaped with flowers and bushes and a new arbor waiting for the plants to mature.

Menemsha is a quiet sound beach, perfect for small children or just relaxing. And all of this is about a 5 minute walk down the hill from the house.

Two miles away is Lucy Vincent beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, with cliffs, massive boulders and fantastic swimming. If you walk to the far end of the beach, nude sunbathing is allowed, and if you have the nerve, nude volleyball. Three miles away is Squibnocket beach, a great surfing and family beach. All the beaches in Chilmark are private, you must be a renter or owner to gain access. The crowds from the towns down island cannot gain access, it is strictly enforced. The beaches have lifeguards.

Seven miles away are the beaches and cliffs of Aquinah (formerly known as Gay Head). Absolutely magnificent views, excellent swimming and walking. It is part of an Native American Reservation and available to the public. Interesting shops and food as well.

The towns (when you are tired of peace and quiet and privacy) are all about a 20 to 25 minute drive away with all the shops and restaurants you could ever want.
