Chilmark Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 1/2 bedrooms, 1.5 bath, sleeps 5

Charming rustic cottage located a short distance off South Rd just past Abels Hill in Chilmark. Chilmark is very rual with rolling hills and stone walls. Water views from upper deck. Access to Lucy Vincent beach a mile down South Road and Squibnocket beach by purchasing stickers at town hall.The sound of sheep during the day and the ocean waves at night is very soothing. Views of the night sky can be wonderful since there is no light pollution. A short walk up our road there are scenic and wooded Landbank trails.

Why Polly chose Martha's Vineyard

If you want to experience the rural part of the island Chilmark is for you. It is away from all the hustle and bustle of the towns but easy to get there if you want. There are lots of trails to explore and the beach near by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Polly -

No worries - we had a few beautiful days and the days that weren't beach perfect we used to explore and relax and shop. It was a good mix :)

We would love to come back next year - it's a great house for us and a perfect location and you were wonderful hosts. The girls and I LOVE Chilmark chocolates and we devoured the box you left on the first day! Thank you!

Ideal Vacation Rental in Lovely Chilmark

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, two adults/two kids spent the latter half of July in this cottage. The term "cottage" doesn't really do the house justice as as had every amenity we are used to at home. Craig is a former hotelier in Florida and it shows - the house and grounds are impeccably kept, the decor inside tasteful. We basically ceded the upstairs space to the kids and slept in the cozy downstairs bedroom. We used the grill on most nights to prepare fresh fish from Menemsha and ate on either the lower or upper deck out back. There are water views from both. The Vineyard's most beautiful beaches are a short drive away as is the Chilmark library and community center where there are a range of programs for kids and adults. Chilmark is so very relaxing that you may never need to travel to other island locations during your entire trip. This house will provide you a most homey base for your Martha's Vineyard vacation, whatever you seek. We look forward to staying here again next year and to seeing Polly and Craig.

What a treasure!

  • 5 of 5

I just had the most wonderful week out at this cottage with my kids. I really couldn't tell from the photos how rustic of a situation I was getting into, and was so delighted when we arrived. Polly and Craig were right nearby for anything I needed, and they took great care of us. Beautiful yard, comfy hammock, decks upstairs and down for lounging, eating, and sunsets (and moonrises). The indoor shower space is ready for an update, but the outside one was great. We will be back, and I am calling dibs on the same week again so I can breathe in the wild roses the island was wrapped in. Glorious.
