Chilmark House Rental Photos and Description
4700 sq.ft. House, Sleeps 10, 4.5 baths, private beach
Island living, island views, an island vacation to return to year after year.
Up to 10 of your family and friends will find private quarters blended with generous gathering places in this gorgeous and comfortable award-winning contemporary home. Spend your days at Chilmark's beaches: Lucy Vincent, Menemsha or Squibnocket ; or explore the island in the afternoon, but save sunsets for the deck overlooking the Elizabeth Islands as boats return to Menemsha Harbor.
The master suite includes king-sized bedroom with fireplace and panoramic ocean views, office or study, and loft with twin beds. A second master bedroom anchors the other side of the house with its king-sized bed, en suite bath, and more stunning views.
In between, the family style kitchen opens up to the eating area with an antique dining table transplanted from Canada that seats 12. The living room features an oversized fireplace, bar, and lots of comfortable sofas and chairs for afternoon naps, a great read, or a late-night game of charades.
Downstairs, you'll find a second galley kitchen, large living room with fireplace, one bedroom with twin beds, a second with a double bed, and pull-out sleepers in the den and living room. This lower level includes two baths, another laundry, and the sliding doors open to a patio and grassy yard with water views.
If you must leave the house every couple of days, take a walk to the private association beach, trails, or tennis courts. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, you can walk to the renowned Chilmark Flea Market. Fresh fish from Menemsha or fried clams in Aquinnah or a stop at Chilmark Chocolates are favored nearby trips to mark your days at this up-island home.
