Overview

Chilmark House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms (1 handicap), sleeps 6

Superb fields-to-ocean-to-islands views from this charming, recently-renovated home, on a historic Chilmark property. You'll enjoy a wealth of beach options: Squibnocket beach only 3-minutes away, or walk to our private, child-safe (no surf) beach, and enjoy key access to 2nd private-member ocean beach. Large bay windows bring the 10-mile view right into the house -- or savor at first-hand from deep chairs on the quiet sunny front porch. Upstairs: watch sailboat races on the inland ponds from two bright, comfortable bedrooms (one king, one double twin/king), and spot rabbits or deer on the estate lawn from the 3rd bedroom/upstairs study (daybed + trundle). Downstairs: a sofabed in the living area (and adjacent handicap-access bathroom w/shower) accommodate a wheelchair-bound guest. Efficient kitchen, laundry, internet, cable TV, music, games and library promote easy relaxation at home! In fall and winter the house is a snuggery, with working fireplace, warm bedding, central heat.

Make your own memories in this historic property!: Lovey's Cottage guesthouse is part of the hilltop Tower House estate, an up-island landmark for its Queen Anne, yellow-painted main house with red roof, and ball-topped tower. The property has changed hands only once since beginning as a multi-acre farm in the early 1800's. It has been in our family for over 50 years now -- and is being cared for by a third generation for whom the estate property was their great summertime home.

Be private -- or part of your own larger group!: Lovey's Cottage has its own parking and front entrance through a small walled garden that gives onto the beautiful view. Carefully designed to work as a completely independent and private residence, Lovey's can also be rented together with the Tower House (which sleeps 10, in 5 bedrooms) -- an arrangement which works very well for weddings, or large groups of friends, or a family with varying needs and ages. Lovey's can be a wonderful solution for grandparents needing separate and quiet time, for in-laws valuing their personal space, or even for a young family with children's nap-time or early-bedtime requirements.

Enjoy the fall, or spring: Lovey's is toasty-warm.: With central heating and a crackling fire in its fireplace, Lovey's Cottage is a wonderful spot to spend an off-season week, holiday, or get-away break. The rolling up-island landscape affords splendid open views, town beaches are accessible for long seaside walks, and island staffers at restaurants, attractions, and boutiques can take more time to welcome and converse with you than in their busier months. Many stores and services stay open into late fall, and re-open in early spring, so there's a 'buzz' to savor in these non-summer months!

Amazing stay! Second year in a row!

We love this cottage. Our family of four has come here for the past two years to celebrate the 4th of July. If you love the quiet solitude of Chilmark with easy access to both a pond and gated beach, you will love this rental. We may look at renting the Tower House with is the adjacent larger home. Highly recommend this property!

Most fantastic time ever!!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is simply gorgeous. Set away from noise, you can enjoy your own personal and extremely private vacation at Loveys Cottage. We enjoyed this stay very much and hope to come back next year. Our most savored moments, were in the late afternoon / early evening, when we would BBQ on the veranda, sip on wine and relax with the most stunning views. The house came equipped with everything that we could think of, and we felt very catered for (e.g. beach towels, hand soap, hair dryer etc.)

Our favorite day trip was to the private beach that is included in this cottage. The beach was huge ... and went as far as we could see in either direction! .. Lovely soft sand, not very busy, and having access to this, really made us feel that it was our own private vacation.

If you stay at Lovey's cottage, you also must visit Larsen's fish market ... WOW is all I can say! We ate a lot of freshly shucked oysters, mussels and lobster here. Fantastic!

This was really the best vacation that we have had in years. Very relaxing, fun, interesting, romantic, all with stunning ocean views!! WE LOVED IT.

Lovey's Cottage, Martha's Vineyard

Lovey's Cottage, Martha's Vineyard
  • 5 of 5
Recently spent a fantastic fall weekend at Lovey's Cottage. The spectacular setting is perfectly complimented by this cozy, nicely decorated, well maintained home. Particularly liked the incredible views, privacy, and easy access to several beaches. The cottage is on the quiet side of the island, a comfortable distance from the crowds, but within easy reach of the Vineyard's charming towns, villages, restaurants and shopping.

We found the cottage to be incredibly clean, quite comfortable, and well equipped, and the owner very responsive, helpful, and pleasant to deal with.

The location of the cottage is perfect for kayaking, sailing, hiking and biking with ready access to rural roads, walking trails, and the waterfront.

We found Lovey's to be an excellent value for our vacation dollar and look forward to the opportunity to stay there again.
