Welcome to Martha’s Vineyard!

Martha’s Vineyard is a magical island just 7 miles off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The 100 square mile island offers the outdoor life- beaches, dunes, ponds, forests, sailing, swimming, hiking, biking, golf, fishing, tennis, kayaking, horseback riding, bird watching, canoeing, walking through wildlife refuges or along miles of beaches. An historic and rich mixture of cultures and traditions- historic “Gingerbread” cottages of Oak Bluffs, elegant 19th Century Ship Captain’s Mansions of Edgartown, breathtaking cliffs and Indian traditions of Aquinnah, quaint fishing village of Menemsha, Inkwell Beach in Oak Bluffs, island Victorian charm of Vineyard Haven, or antique dealers and art galleries in each of the seven island towns.

Whether you are attracted to the photographic landscape opportunities, the cultural events, the shops, restaurants and nightlife, or the outdoor style, Martha’s Vineyard is an island of timeless grace and awaits you.

Oak Bluffs , home to the Surfside Motel, is an island gem. The Flying Horses, oldest carousel in the US, the historic Campground, Tabernacle and Inkwell Beach are within a few minutes walk from your hotel.
