About Martha’s Vineyard…

“The Vineyard” is an island off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. It is much larger than most realize: at approximately 21×10 miles, with six diverse towns. The “down-island” towns of Oak Bluffs, Tisbury, and Edgartown have vibrant day and night attractions such as restaurants, bars/taverns, abundant shops, and public beaches. The “up-island” towns including our home of Chilmark, are more quiet and rural, offering many vistas and coastline changes.

Boat, airplane, bus or car are the only way to reach the island, making it a special effort and reward to reach. For additional information on getting to Martha’s Vineyard click here.

While the months of July and August are the most popular for visitors, April-May-June and September-October are also splendid times to enjoy the island experience.

Hiking, biking, fishing, sailing, and relaxing by the sea are common goals of both visitors and residents alike. Our beaches are world-class!

There are several Taxi companies serving the island, Uber and Lyft are also in service, as well as our local transport system, the Vineyard Transit Authority (VTA). Automobile, motorcycle, moped, and bicycle rentals are in most towns, as are grocery and convenience stores. In Chilmark, the nearby Chilmark General Store and Menemsha Store have provisions, and Cronig’s Market is in West Tisbury Center, a 10 minute drive.

If you happen to be visiting for a wedding or special event or are planning your own the house is conveniently located to Chilmark venues including the Allen Farm, the Captain R. Flanders House, the Beach Plum Inn, and the Tower House.

NOTE:  Chilmark remains a DRY town.  There are Liquor stores in Edgartown and Oak Bluffs and there is a store at the airport.  Some places will deliver.
