Beautiful cottage tucked away on a remote quiet road.
Amazing! Upon arrival we knew this was exactly what we imagined the property to be. The cottage itself is quaint, simple and inviting with a quintessional Vineyard design. Our mornings were spent on the deck enjoying our cafe and talking about the wonderful meal from last night, the spectacular sunset we experienced just minutes away at Menumsha beach or the starlit sky we embraced before going to bed. The sounds of the surf in the distance was so beautiful especially falling asleep to it. Most of all, the outdoor shower was the biggest treat ever. We will return knowing this dream cottage will be awaiting us. Merci for the perfect getaway!
Perfect up-island getaway for two.
Nice cottage but not well maintained
The cottage is in a great location and nicely decorated. However, there were a few big issues with this place. 1) It was not clean. It looked like the floor was vacuumed but not mopped. One of the pillows had an awful stench. When we changed the sheets we found someone’s underwear on the mattress. We told the owner but he just said he’d give the cleaner feedback. We ended up buying cleaning stuff and doing quite a bit of cleaning. 2) It is not well maintained. Some of the furniture is either broken or very rickety. This is really a shame because it’s a beautiful cottage. 3) Owner Richard did not want to hear about any issues and was quite defensive when I texted him about a broken bed. His response “The bed is not broken. We have been asked to have one twin on the floor for young children. I think it's best to start enjoying your vacation.” He did stop by later in the day to fix the bed.
We took the feedback from this review and changed our cleaning service as a result. Up until then, we had not had any issues but we take cleanliness very seriously. We have had great feedback on our new cleaning team since then.
This renter notified us that a previous renter had made a change to the bed and had broken one of our adirondack chairs. The bed was fixed and the chair replaced within 12 hours of the report as this review does point out.
Perfect Location, Wonderful Up Island Cottage
We had an amazing three weeks in Chilmark in this lovely cottage. Richard and Danielle are the perfect hosts, readily attentive and at the same time giving us the privacy we were after. The location is perfect with the best beach access and a quick drive to shops, restaurants and activities for the kids. Not easy to find such a great place at such a reasonable price on this part of the island. We would definitely rent again. Such a treat!
I have been visiting Chilmark for over 10 years and this is by far my favorite place we have stayed. To start, the owners, Danielle and Richard are wonderful to deal with. The cottage is pure Chilmark perfection with it’s charming yet nautical decor. The location is absolutely wonderful as it is very close to Menemsha, Chilmark store and community center. Renting the cottage also allows you access to the Vineyard’s most beautiful beaches and the lush trees around the property allow for a great sense of calm after a day at the beach. Comfortable beds, awesome hammock and outdoor shower are other perks! We are very excited to have booked this property for a third summer and are counting the days until we return! Thank you!
Adorable Cottage, Beautiful Setting
This cottage is set amongst the lushness and privacy that seems to define Chilmark. It is decorated very tastefully and feels very cozy and inviting. It faces west so in the afternoon to evening the sun streams in making it feel like a beach house. The kitchen is small but is well-stocked. The deck is lovely so we ate outside most nights. And the hammock a very nice touch. The cottage was super clean when we arrived. As another mentioned, the main house is nearby but it feels very private here.
I would only recommend this house for a family or a very close group.. It was perfect for us with 2 adults and our 2 children.
Every day we walked down to Menemsha Beach...it's about 2 miles each way and it's a lovely walk on dirt roads and very pretty views. We also went to Lucy Vincent Beach daily...you can buy a sticker for your car....it is a beautiful beach! I highly recommend it.
This was our first visit to MV, so we're not experts, but I have a feeling Chilmark is the place to be if you want to be away from the crowds and enjoy a very simple, quiet, and relaxing vacation. There are a few great restaurants nearby.
Ideal location less than 1.25 miles from all Chilmark beaches. Lucy Vincent, Squibnocket, and Menemsha. Half a mile to the Chilmark General store. Property has rolling hills with gorgeous trees and landscaping. Lovely hammock, perfect for a long afternoon nap.
