Why Tracy Schaller 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
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.
Thank you for the review! Glad you love Chappy as much as we do.
Generous amount of space.
There were only four of us on this trip and this space felt large. There is one great room that runs from the screen porch, through the kitchen, dining area into the living room, so everyone is together. Still plenty of options if you are looking for a quiet spot to read.
Loved the outdoor shower and side yard for volleyball/badminton.
Nice, mid island location...
Good space for 6-8 people, located between two great beach choices. Easy access to Edgartown. Check out Slip Away Farm when they are open.
Classic summer cottage...
Plenty of space for a group of six. Convenient location to two great beaches. Nice outdoor shower and screen porch. Definitely, a place to come back to.
Perfect place, perfect week!
We had spectacular weather and this house was in a great location and offered everything we needed/wanted. Chappy is wonderful.
So glad you had an amazing time! Hope to see you next summer :)
Thank you for taking such great care of our house ... you are super clean guests.
Great space to share with family!
This was our first visit to Chappy. This house was perfect for our family visit.
Off the main road and yet within easy reach of Wasque to the left and East Beach to the right. We never took our car off Chappy. We took the bus to visit the other island towns and walked onto the ferry to go to Edgartown. Can't wait to visit again
Chappy, swimming, fishing, biking,hiking, beaches are so nice...Choose from Chappy Point Beach, East Beach on Chappy or Norton Point Beach on Chappy. This house is 3 miles from the point, 1 mile from East Beach and 1.5 miles from Norton Point.
