Martha’s Vineyard Vacation Rentals: Chilmark Victorian


Chilmark’s south shore offers some of the best the Vineyard has to offer: gorgeous beaches, dazzling sunsets, tantalizing quiet…and grand summer houses. This Victorian house sits atop a hill, offering 270-degree views over meadows, ponds and ocean. With access to both Menemsha Pond and private Hancock Beach, this house that sleeps 10 and feeds 12, is perfect for big family gatherings. Spread out into two sprawling living rooms, a new kitchen wing loaded with sun-filled windows and five bedrooms complete with water views.

The front porch is covered and the back deck is perfect for lazing around in the sun. And the colors, art and furniture of the house compliments the Victorian stylings with a classic Vineyard look. The property also includes an historic barn and a two bedroom guest house which is also available for rent, but not included. The surrounding land is perfect for evening strolls or a pick-up Frisbee game before dinner – a wonderful place for children to run around and enjoy the glorious Vineyard sea air!

The inside of the house is just as glorious as the outside with open, bright colors, clean lines and all the nooks and crannies that Victorian’s offer. The circular turret and the bump outs allow for cozy spots within and gorgeous architecture from without.


Important to note: The entire first floor is wheelchair accessible and includes a first floor king/double-twin bedroom and a fully wheelchair accessible bathroom.

I look forward to booking this house for you! Contact me for details on this or any of our properties here.

Martha’s Vineyard Vacation Rental: Chilmark Waterfront

If you’re looking for a quiet vacation rental…but you still want to take advantage of the Vineyard and all it has to offer, look no further. This gorgeous Chilmark rental is all about water, up-island and good living. And it’s being offered for a few select weeks in August at a discounted price! Contact me for details.


Water. Located right on the water (about 200 yards!), you get to enjoy your own private beach on Quitsa Pond and Clam Point Cove – perfect for clamming, kayaking, sailing and swimming. Ideal for young children and families because you also get a private dock and mooring. Your views take in both Quitsa and Menemsha Ponds and look out to the Elizabeth Islands.

Up-Island. It’s quiet, it’s easy. You don’t have to wear shoes if you don’t want to. And even the most posh dinner is fine eaten in khakis or jeans. The pace is just slower up here, everyone’s on beach time. This part of the island also features some of the best beaches, and this Chilmark rental comes with stickers (access) to the prized Squibnocket and Lucy Vincent beaches – spots so special that you practically need a map and a secret password to find them!

Good-living. Open spaces, bright sunlight, a fireplace for those cool and cozy Chilmark nights! This house sleeps eight and the dining room table seats ten. Honestly, the house is just beautiful and the land around it is plentiful – and so very green during the Vineyard summer.
