Tracy Schaller (508) 655.9900 purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Tracy Schaller (508) 655.9900 chose Edgartown

In 1996, our 2nd child was born and the idea of sailing with two children under the age of three did not sound appealing. We opted to combine the sailing with a toes-in-the-sand cottage rental. My husband picked up a mooring in Edgartown Harbor and I set up house in The Artist's Studio. It was this summer cottage that served as our introduction to the charm of Chappaquiddick. We fell in love with Chappy that summer of 1996 and after buying in 1997, have summered here ever since.

What makes this cottage unique

The vaulted ceiling and open floor plan that connect the screen porch, kitchen and livingroom make this cottage feel big. The skylights bring in natural light and air. The masterbedroom has its own bathroom and w/d. The other two bedrooms share a full bath with a tub/shower. The house is off the main road, with enough yard space for a small badminton court. The screen porch is the perfect spot to read the paper and enjoy your morning coffee. The outdoor shower serves as the ideal venue for star gazing.

Great cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

The artist cottage on Chappy is our favorite vacation spot. The cottage is bright, very clean and perfectly appointed. We love the outdoor shower, washer and dryer, screened in porch, and nice open space. It has all the right gear to head to the beach. When you come home from the beach the cottage is well equipped with all the pots, pans ,dishes, grill and utensils to cook with. If you feel like heading to Edgartown for dinner it's a quick ride to the ferry (less than 2 miles) and there are lots of great restaurant choices without the hassle of traffic and parking issues. The beaches on Chappy are unmatched, peaceful, relaxing and uncrowded. We have rented for the past three years and are looking forward to our stay this summer.

Our Favorite Vineyard Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been staying at this special Chappy Cottage every year for over 10 years and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. The home is always impeccably clean upon arrival and the welcoming, beachy decor is charming yet simple. The open floor plan works for our family allowing us to spread out a bit while still feeling connected. The breezy screened porch is our favorite spot and we eat all of meals out there. It's a quick drive or bike ride to several beaches on Chappy and just a short 2 minute ferry ride from Chappy into downtown Edgartown. Lots of great shopping and restaurants. The owners go above and beyond to make our stay magical. I highly recommend this wonderful Chappy Cottage!

Wonderful getaway on Chappy!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property several times now and each time has been a delight! The Artist's Studio has all the amenities you will need and the listing is accurate as described. The 2 bathrooms inside are great when you have 2 couples or more staying PLUS a great outdoor shower, which is our preferred shower location! The enclosed porch is wonderful and generally we took most of our meals here.

This is in a quiet neighborhood setting and has lots of privacy. The beaches are a close drive to the property. It's easy to make an excursion onto Martha's Vineyard and often we leave our car on the Chappy side and go across as foot passengers to have dinner or to spend an afternoon shopping in Edgartown. Of course, there is lots of surf fishing or one can charter a boat out of Edgartown. Don't forget about the famous Cape Cod Striped Bass and Blue Fish Tournament if you are fishing enthusiasts. There is lots to explore on the Vineyard but we tend to spend most of our time enjoying the slower pace of Chappy. Note, there are no services on Chappy.

This is a delightful place for a home base that is close and convenient to all the Vineyard has to offer. Or, enjoy good wine and home-cooked food, fun games or a good book on Chappy in the Artist's Studio!

Great Chappy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house to relax in and get away from the rat race. I was there for a girls weekend and we had a blast! The house was spacious and clean and had everything we needed. I loved the outdoor shower and the house was close to the best beaches on the Vineyard. The Chappy Ferry was a quick drive/bike ride away and gave us easy access to Edgartown's nightlife. I can't wait to stay in the Artist's Studio again and would highly recommend this property to others.

Owner's Response: I remember Jen and her crew! What a great group of women...They left me a note about their favorite places on Chappy and in Edgartown. They left the Artist's Studio so clean, you couldn't even tell they'd been there! Hope to see them again!

Our family's favorite.

  • 5 of 5

We've spent our summer vacation here since 2002.

It is large enough to enjoy privacy & has enough open space so that everyone can be together. This is a summer cottage the way it should be! Great place for biking and going to the beach.
