Why Jennifer Coor chose Martha's Vineyard

We fell in love with Martha's Vineyard, as it reminded us of England, where I grew up. It is a lovely family summer house, quiet, yet near Chilmark Center and beaches.

What makes this house unique

Surrounded by unspoiled land. Faces due South, so gets any sun that is shining. Decks on both sides of house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Comfortable & Private"

The first time I stayed at this Chilmark house was in 1986, and I've had numerous happy stays there ever since.

This spacious, comfortable dwelling offers ample accommodations for groups of friends or a couple of families. A well-stocked cheery kitchen suits cooks preparing everything from a quick snack to an elaborate dinner. The deck has hosted many lobster fests, summer birthday parties, and gin-and-tonic cocktail hours at sunset. This is a child-friendly, non-fussy, very comfortable house. The living room/dining room offers lots of seating for big groups and shared activities. Privacy is assured at this wonderfully secluded house. Rock walls and hydrangeas abound, and there is nothing sweeter than rinsing off in the outdoor shower after a hot afternoon at Lucy Vincent! Hiking paths are nearby, as are many tempting shops in Chilmark and Menemsha. When our kids were small they loved the playground near Allie's, with a farmer's market for the parents.

Perfect location! Awesome outdoor shower. Private and peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

I was attending a conference with a friend and brought along my son and another friend. We had an amazing time. Watched the eclipse from the deck. Close to chilmark general store with great food, baked goods, tea and coffee in the am. Lucy Vincent beach is so beautiful and getting the pass was easy. Jennifer was delightful and gave us yummy farm fresh eggs! Enjoyed everything all week.

Comfortable, woodsy cottage with easy access to the prettiest rural places on the island

  • 5 of 5

We visited Beam End to celebrate my mom's birthday. The cottage is suited for family time, with a bright, open kitchen, a comfortable living space, and fabulous decks that look over trees, bird roosts, and picturesque stone walls. We enjoyed the trails around the property, the beautiful flowers, and especially our close proximity to Lucy Vincent Beach, one of the most amazing oceanscapes I've ever visited. One of my favorite features of the cottage was the outdoor shower, which allowed us to enjoy nice warm or cool showers in the open sun and air with privacy. My whole family- from my dad and mom, who love peace and quiet, to my brother and sister-in-law, who are city dwellers- truly appreciated the cottage.

I cannot say enough about Jen and her hospitality. She was warm, generous with her knowledge and resources, and was simply a delightful person with whom to speak. My daughters, 8 and 3, keep asking if we can go back and see her soon. We hope to do just that and we plan to return to Beam End!

Wonderful stay in this peaceful pastoral setting.

Comfortable & clean - inside and out. Great yard space. Location convenient to shops, food and beaches. Many thanks to our very responsive host - we enjoyed our meeting with Jennifer. Hope we can make a return visit.

Great House, Great Location, Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

This review is definitely coming late as we stayed here last July, but my group was reminiscing about it recently, and I realized I never wrote the review. We had a terrible situation in which another VRBO listing cancelled on us 2 weeks away. Jennifer was amazing and extremely accommodating. She met us and quickly restored our faith back in VRBO. She was even kind enough to give us some fresh eggs from her chicken! In addition to that, she helped us get a pass to the coveted Lucy Vincent beach, which words cannot describe.

The house itself is extremely private with a great front and back yard. The bedrooms are extremely spacious and comfortable. The deck gets a ton of sunlight and was great for playing cards and relaxing. There is a picnic table and grill out back as well which was perfect for making dinner together as a group. One of the best features to this house is hands down the outdoor shower. It is enclose but you get a peaceful view of the farmland and an amazing breeze. We even used it in the rain that's how amazing it was!

There is truly only one downfall to this house and for some it might be a positive. Since the house is so private and nestled in the woods, the entrance can be a little hard to spot. It is labeled and everything, but still it manages to sneak up on you every time. We missed it a couple of times, but finally got the hang of it after a couple days.

All in all, this house, the owner, and the experience was all amazing. Our misfortune actually turned out for the better thanks to this listing. We are so grateful and would recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area!

Thanks again Jennifer!

Fantastic location, Super Host

  • 5 of 5

From my first contact with Jennifer, the owner, I knew our family has found a special rental. Our party of six needed to find a home to spend five days while on the island to attend a wedding. I had heard Chilmark has peaceful, scenic beauty --with wonderful beaches -- and the area didn't disappoint. (The neighboring farm even has sheep to add to the bucolic setting.) Jennifer greeted us upon arrival, navigated us through the permit process for the local private beaches, and made sure throughout our stay we had everything we needed while staying at the house. She couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating. We certainly hope to return.

Perfect Chilmark Home

  • 5 of 5

We rent in Chilmark every summer and this home is exactly what you would hope for in an MVY vacation. Very comfortable, "beachy" and private. The owner is extremely responsive. The location is perfect for any Chilmark activities.
