Guestbook comments from the owner
"Comfortable & Private"
The first time I stayed at this Chilmark house was in 1986, and I've had numerous happy stays there ever since.
This spacious, comfortable dwelling offers ample accommodations for groups of friends or a couple of families. A well-stocked cheery kitchen suits cooks preparing everything from a quick snack to an elaborate dinner. The deck has hosted many lobster fests, summer birthday parties, and gin-and-tonic cocktail hours at sunset. This is a child-friendly, non-fussy, very comfortable house. The living room/dining room offers lots of seating for big groups and shared activities. Privacy is assured at this wonderfully secluded house. Rock walls and hydrangeas abound, and there is nothing sweeter than rinsing off in the outdoor shower after a hot afternoon at Lucy Vincent! Hiking paths are nearby, as are many tempting shops in Chilmark and Menemsha. When our kids were small they loved the playground near Allie's, with a farmer's market for the parents.
We fell in love with Martha's Vineyard, as it reminded us of England, where I grew up. It is a lovely family summer house, quiet, yet near Chilmark Center and beaches.
Surrounded by unspoiled land. Faces due South, so gets any sun that is shining. Decks on both sides of house.
