Despite an A-list patronage—the Obamas are frequent visitors—Martha’s Vineyard is one of New England’s loveliest and most low-key islands. At its heart, the Vineyard is about the simple pleasures of summer.


We only feature hotels that we can vouch for first-hand. With Indagare Plus,members receive special amenities.

Living Room at The Charlotte Inn, Martha's Vineyard, New England

The Charlotte Inn

The Vineyard’s only Relais & Châteaux property is on a quiet street near the center of Edgartown. Guests stay in nineteen rooms furnished with French and English antiques and reproductions. The downstairs drawing rooms, with leather armchairs, chandeliers and oil paintings, exude a prim Edwardian air. It may be more formal than some of the other inns on the island (several people have used the word “precious”), but the Charlotte has a sense of humor, too: at the door, guests are greeted by Ozzie, a golden retriever wearing a tiny blue-and-white-striped tie.

Interior View - Harbor View Hotel, Martha's Vineyard, New England

Harbor View Hotel

An island icon since 1891, the historic Harbor View Hotel occupies a prized waterfront location at the end of Edgartown’s North Water Street and features unrivaled views of Edgartown Lighthouse. The shingled property is an easy five-minute walk from downtown Edgartown, so guests can frolic at the beach by day and dine in town at night—all without driving, a rarity in Martha’s Vineyard. And the on-site amenities provide little reason to leave; the property features an outdoor pool, fitness center, yoga classes, Children’s Program and multiple dining venues, including Henry’s, an elegant gastro-pub, and Lighthouse Grill, a family-friendly venue with stunning views.

The 114 guest rooms, suites and cottages are incredibly varied, so selecting the proper room is crucial. The chic cottages are the newest and most luxurious accommodations thanks to a bevy of amenities; the one-, two- and three- bedroom options include a washer/dryer, outdoor shower, kitchenette, fireplace and many feature a private porch. The historic main building is home to a number of accommodations that are ideal for those who want water views and don’t require the space of a cottage, and basic hotel rooms are located in the Governor Mayhew building.
