A family of 5, we stayed for 2 weeks in August and had a great experience. The house is clean and well maintained, and an excellent location- very quiet at the property while being less than a 1/4 mile from the main road. An easy ride to the 2 best beaches on Martha's Vineyard: Lucy Vincent and Squibnocket, the house is less than 10 minutes from either beach. Also conveniently located about 1/2 mile away is the iconic Chilmark Store, where you are guaranteed to make frequent visits for quick meals and snacks.
-Nearby Middle Road and South Road in Chilmark are great for running and biking.
-Very close to Menemsha, for great sunsets and fried clams at "The Bite".
-Kayaking at Quitsa ocean pond.
-A 15 minute drive to Aquinnah. See the light house, dramatic cliffs, views of the Elizabeth Islands, and spend time at Moshup's Trail Beach.
-Take advantage of the Chilmark Public library for beach book selections, movie rentals, and a cool break from the Summer heat.
As vacationers to Martha's Vineyard for 25 years, we highly recommend this property (as long as it's not during the weeks we want to stay there...). You will have plenty of time to visit the other interesting towns on the island for shopping and other fun activities, then come back to the serenity of Chilmark.
