Sea View Cottages

From the very early days of the Menemsha Inn and Cottages each of the twelve cottages developed a distinct personality and following. The cottages' great views, full kitchens and wood burning fireplaces... and drive on passes to Lucy Vincent Beach make them the perfect base camp for your Chilmark vacation.

Historically we only rented Saturday to Saturday. At guests' request we relaxed that policy during the economic slow down. Starting in September 2013 we are pleased to be able to return to the old tradition of weekly rates. The fall is our favorite time of year, and we hope we will see you then.

All Sea View Cottages feature:

  • bedroom area with a king-size bed
  • sitting area with a sofa sleeper
  • cozy fireplace
  • fully equipped kitchen with dining table
  • full private bath
  • sun deck offering ocean and garden views
  • cable television
  • iron and ironing board
  • hair dryer
  • outside showers
  • BBQ grills
  • screened porches
  • daily housekeeping service
  • complimentary firewood

Menemsha Inn and Cottages offers a choice of one-bedroom, two-bedroom and two-story cottages.

Usually guests have such a memorable time, making friends with other couples or families that they immediately became attached to "their cottage and their two weeks" which they book for the next year before leaving.

Legendary life photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt holds our loyalty record of 53 consecutive summers. Pilot house was his home away from home and although that mark will be hard to beat we have many families who are trying their best...many are twenty year visitors and several have passed thirty five years...a tribute to this special place! Thirty seven years is our current longest returning guest, with the two-decade club well represented.
