Piece of "haven"

  • 5 of 5

Before chosing this cottage for my first week-long stay on Martha's Vineyard in decades, I had researched the island's summer rentals extensively and I am convinced we found the best price-quality offering with this beautiful, airy and very comfortable cottage ! The cottage itself is ideal for those who wish total tranquility in a country setting far enough from the hectic fun of the island's three main towns. Though the property has no view per se, it is very close to the ocean and sits in a landscaped sunny lot with shaded areas and screened patio that acts has a second dining room. The screen did come in handy as there are mosquitoes (something I tend to forget when I look at beautiful pictures !). The neighboring sheeps and rolling hills made for an English-countryside lookalike setting !... We loved the interior layout and the fact that the kitchen was very well equipped to cook. Having a washer and dryer was a godsend and hot water in the outside shower was pure joy. Loved the firm bed and fresh linens !... You will need a car as the main road does not seem safe to me for pedestrians, but a bike will easily get you to the town owners' private beaches and the famous Chilmark country store. You may not want to spend the amounts due for a car pass to the private beaches if you know that Aquinnah's public beach parking only costs 15$ a visit. It is farther away but even more beautiful than LVB, especially at low tide, as it enables you to walk to the amazing red clay cliffs of Gay Head. Menemsha's fish shacks and West Tisbury farmer and artist markets are just a short drive away. Truly we adored our stay. The only constructive suggestion we can think of would be to provide bicycles to renters has getting them ourselves is a bit complicated but even without this added bonus, the cottage remains perfect.

Captivating Spring at the Kendall Kottage

  • 5 of 5

One of my favorite times on the island of Martha's Vineyard is the month of May and I love up-island, so I chose the Kendall Kottage. It was perfect for me, so much so I even extended my stay by several days. It has access to LucyVincent Beach, which is one of the most interesting and scenic beaches on the island as it is backed by the Chilmark Pond, so beach goers have two bodies of water to swim in and explore. The Kendall Kottage is secluded and serene. During my stay the spring lambs were always close to the fence that separates The Kottage property from the historic Allen Sheep Farm, and I was charmed by seeing and hearing the ewes and lambs together in the morning and evening.

The Kottage is simply but elegantly furnished. The kitchen is fully equipped and the linens on the bedding are lovely. The queen bed I slept in was supremely comfortable. I loved the outdoor shower, the gardens, the quite and privacy, the screened in porch, and to my surprise discovered a sun deck hidden in the tree tops up a path adjacent to the house.

This property has everything for your comfort, and the Kendalls are welcoming, gracious, thoughtful hosts. I plan to return to the Kendall Kottage in the future. I highly recommend it as a peaceful place to get away, and yet it everything you desire up or down is-land is within easy driving distance. This place is a hidden treasure you'll cherish.

Perfect setting for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our recent stay at the Kendall Kottage - as we pulled up to the house on our check in day, we heard relaxing and tranquil music being played which matched the surroundings and only to find delicious Chilmark Chocolates on the dining table and a folder full of helpful vacation brochures. So much privacy and tranquility right next to the Allen sheep farm - we heard sheep baaing in the morning which was so sweet to hear as we woke up every day. I don't think you could find a more private and relaxing setting. The cottage was more than enough space for the two of us and was so immaculately clean! The owners were wonderful too - they made our stay so warm and welcoming. We didn't want to leave!
