About Richard E. Steves
I live in the main house on the property which was built 10 years ago. I work as the Assistant Harbormaster during the summer in the village of Menemsha - a beautiful little working seaport. I was the owner of the Menemsha Inn for 20 years before selling in 2000 and retiring.
Richard E. Steves purchased this Apartment in 2007

Clean comfortable private
Very pleasant stay in a well maintained comfortable private apartment. Owner host was a pleasure to deal with.
Beautiful serene property
Chilmark is a more secluded serene area yet close enough to all the towns of Marthas Vineyard. The apartment is lovely. Very clean with hardwood floors, large updated bath, windows on all sides to get a nice cross breeze. Owner is very helpful and his golden retreiver Tucker is a very sweet dog.
Everything we were looking for.
Clean, bright, breezy, and spacious. Perfect for a couple looking for a quiet location, off the beaten path. It's in the middle of everything Up-island and an easy drive to everywhere else. Richard is a great host. We would definitely return.
You can not find a better place!!
This is the best hidden GEM on the island. The property is just gorgeous, if you are looking for peace and quiet this is your place. The apartment is spotless!! Everything is new and clean and it looks much larger then 750sq. The owner Richard is the definition of a perfect gentleman. He has been in the hospitality business for 20 years and he passes it right on to make sure your stay is perfect!, When he would leave early in the morning he would do everything possible to avoid waking us up at 630 am. Staying above his garage in consideration he would leave his car in the driveway to avoid and noise. His dog Tucker is the most gentle and lovable dog. I rarely ever write a review and I hope I'm not giving it away for next year but if you have a chance to stay here you will have no regrets. Everything you are looking for is in the beautiful carrage house.
The Find of the Vineyard!
This adorable carriage house is truly the find of the Vineyard! On very short notice, we were so lucky that Richard had availability. We are two single women. The one queen bed here has the most amazing mattress! I've slept the world over and never had a bed so comfortable. We brought a blowup bed for a second...there is PLENTY of space for privacy for two friends. Well designed, spotless, well equipped. Come and go as you please. Richard is the perfect host (and has a fascinating life story.) Peaceful, gorgeous, wooded surroundings. Richard is a gifted gardener. Do not miss playing ball with Tucker, the Golden Retriever, the friendliest dog alive. Consider yourself lucky if you land here.
