Overview

Chilmark House Rental Photos and Description

Five bedrooms/Three bathrooms/ Two outside showers Sleeps 9-11

Tucked into the woods, this elegant house offers a panoramic view of the full sweep of the Vineyard Sound from Woods Hole to Cuttyhunk -- by day, sailboats and the Elizabeth Islands and beyond, followed by magnificent sunsets and then the mainland coast sparkling with lights at night. A short walk brings you to one of the island’s most beautiful private beaches, the historic Brickyard where the original kiln chimney-tower stands as a landmark. One can drive part way down or walk (10-15 minutes).

The house overlooks and provides easy access to the extensive trails on the 200 acre Menemsha Hills Reservation, including resplendent views from the top of Prospect Hill (the highest point on the island), which affords a glorious vista of the western end of the Vineyard.

With your lease you are able to purchase beach stickers to both private town beaches - Lucy Vincent and Squibnocket.

A place of unique tranquillity

  • 5 of 5
This is a very special house in a magnificent setting. Even by high Vineyard standards, it has extraordinarily vast water views from the expansive deck. And at the same time its wooded setting offers complete privacy: there is no other residence in sight, only treetops. The house itself is elegant and very personal, furnished with treasures from all over the world. It is also robust and proved perfect for our large family group ranging in age from 12 to 84. We loved walking the meandering wooded trail to the Brickyard beach and were often the only people there. We will certainly return and would heartily recommend a stay here to anyone who treasures tranquillity.

A relaxing, serene retreat!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful, relaxing two weeks here with another family in late August. Altogether there were four adults, two three-year- olds, and a one-year-old. (The house is great for two families because the bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house.) The downstairs rooms are great for kids, particularly kids a little older than ours, who would have fun having that part of the house to themselves… Highlights of our stay: walking (or taking the quick drive) down the hill to the beach, which we had entirely to ourselves every time we visited, and where the kids loved collecting rocks; going out to the deck at night to look at the stars; watching the sunset from the deck in the evening and staring out at the water during the day from the dining table... The house is atop a hill and there is not another house in sight-- days and nights alike are very quiet and peaceful! Beautiful. We also hiked around the reservation trails, which are just a few steps down the road. Our preschoolers and toddler loved watching the goldfish in the pond, and wandering around collecting acorns. You do have to be careful with young kids around the pond and deck, but we managed. (The house might be a little better for families with slightly older kids-- less vigilance, although like I said, we managed.) The location is very good-- a quick (5-10 minute) drive down to Menemsha for dinner or sunset, or to the Chilmark store for breakfast, or to the Chilmark library on a rainy day. You do have to drive to get anywhere except the beach and the reservation trails, although that's true of Chilmark in general, in our experience. A really great thing is that the house does not at all feel like a rental--the kitchen has everything you need, including all the spices and basic staples and beyond--just replace what you take. There are also beach towels and lots of other necessities. You really feel like you are staying at a family home or a friend's house, instead of a rental, which is very, very nice. Overall, this is a very relaxing, serene retreat, great for up to 2-3 families or couples who want a great base from which to explore the island. We've been going to MV for several summers and this has been the favorite of the homes we've rented! Thanks so much Susanna!

Chilmark is known for its beautiful beaches and gorgeous views of ponds, woods, pastures and ocean. There are easily accessed nature walks, flea markets (featuring antiques and the work of island artisans), and local farmers' markets which sell everything from fresh flowers to a wide variety of local produce. The Chilmark Community Center offers a children's camp, sailing, tennis, exercise classes, and evening lectures, movies, concerts and dances for kids and adults. Also nearby are the Chilmark Library, Chilmark General Store, and picturesque Menemsha Village with its docks, fish markets, small shops, and the Home Port restaurant, one of several excellent restaurants in the neighborhood. You can also drive 20-25 minutes either up island to the spectacular Aquinnah clay cliffs, lighthouse, and beaches where you can enjoy the famed Outermost Inn restaurant - or down island to the charming towns of West Tisbury, Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven, or Edgartown - each with its own distinct personality, shops, and restaurants.
