This sunny Chilmark cottage w/ 2 BRs , a full BA, and outdoor shower and a separate Studio BR w/ a 1/2 BA and outdoor shower offer total privacy on your own 5 acres.

This simple and appealing cottage has a large living room with a windowed 1/2 wall and doors to both the yard and wraparound deck.There is wifi and cable for the 32' HDTV with a VCR/DVD for those rainy days and restful evenings. There is a rare, and usable, beachstone fireplace, the raised ceiling w/ beams gives that perfect summer camp feeling. W/ a sunny wraparound deck , the extended shaded section is ideal for barbecuing and al fresco dining. The country kitchen, has a back door leading to the outdoor shower, the front doorway abuts the DR area table that's perfectly sized for your lobster feasts, card games, and entertaining. The main house has 2 bedrooms, one a queen and one with 2 twins with a door out to the new wood wraparound deck. Within easy calling distance, yet not visible to the main house, is the studio with a queen bedroom, 1/2 bath, and it's own outside shower.
Our small road leads one to Menemsha through the woods - no need to drive on the main roads when visiting the docks or fish markets! Only 5 minutes to Lucy Vincent Beach, the Chilmark Community Center, Chilmark Store,and Squibnocket Beach, one feels far removed and yet convenient to everything.
My family loved it. We have already booked it for next year. Could use some updating (i would love to redecorate, it has potential to be absolutely beautiful!) Great for small family. We are bringing the dog next year. Sunsets are beautiful and it is very quiet. My two older boys enjoyed sleeping in the guest house. Can not wait to get back!
The sunsets are gorgeous from the deck and through the living room picture window. Nice little place just the right size for small family. Also guest cottage for another couple. Very quiet and secluded. A bit rustic but still great.
Chilmark boasts 3 beautiful beaches; Lucy Vincent, Squibnocket, and Menemsha. Many locations are perfect for kayaking and canoeing - Menemsha Pond, Squibnocket and Stonewall Ponds, and of course, Vineyard Sound. Within 3 minutes is the Community Center offering lectures, movies, concerts, dances, sailing, and tennis-lessons! Biking, bike ferry to Lobsterville, fish markets and restaurants, fishing off the docks or jetty, long country road rambles, Nature preserves, modern dance performances. Rocking on the porch of the Chilmark Store - reading your newspaper, people watching, or just plain daydreaming...an up-Island tradition.
