The 'wayside camp' as it was known, is an early 20C cottage, it is conveniently located on the North Road and it is an easy walk to the harbor, which has a jetty, boat dock and beach. There are two excellent fish stores where you can get clams on the half shell, lobster, or an assortment of fish right off the boat. There is a general store and restaurant just a 'block' from the house.
Menemsha is at the western end of Martha's Vineyard and provides many beautiful sunsets over the water. It is always a great way to end the day. Mornings are very peaceful and if you like to walk or run, you may have the beach to yourself.
The house is simple, but comfortable with a large eat in kitchen, living room , den, two bedrooms and bathroom. The bathroom was completely renovated two years ago. There is a large deck with a pond view and the coast guard station behind the house.
Renters have access to the town beach as well as two beautiful private beaches for 'up island residents '. Many nice roads for walking and running.

I am an artist and am always inspired by the beauty of the vineyard. My two brothers and I own this property. We all live in different states and have enjoyed a lot of family time in the Menemsha house. Our parents bought the house, and for several years it was an art gallery.
Matthew Cooper purchased this cottage in 1978
