Relax (and Stay in Style) near Martha's Vineyard

By Chloe Stein

Martha's Vineyard, home to the famous Back Door Donuts, offers much more than just the best finger-licking good pastries in New England. Quiet, remote, and the perfect combination of both luxury and casual, Martha's Vineyard is a destination unlike any other. Once on the island, visit the stunning town of Oak Bluffs, take a stroll along Ocean Park, savor top-notch restaurants, or just simply enjoy the seaside vibes that surround you.

Stay at one of these unique accommodations, and you can enjoy a day trip to the island, spend a night out at a local pub, and, most importantly, enjoy the serenity of your own private waterfront oasis. From a villa in Provincetown, Massachusetts, to a lighthouse off the coast of Rhode Island, these getaways are just a ferry away from the one and only Martha's Vineyard, and, better yet, they are some of our best seaside getaways.
