The choice of where to stay on Martha’s Vineyard is as diverse as the Island itself.

Take your pick: five star resort, rambling Victorian hotel by the sea, secluded hideaway with a view, bed and breakfast, funky motel on the harbor, rental estate, private bungalow, international youth hostel, campground and more.

If you want to be close to ferries, shopping, and nightlife, you’ll want to stay in one of the three “down-Island” towns: Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven, or Edgartown. Should you prefer a more pastoral setting, winding roads, and fewer crowds, head “up-Island” to West Tisbury, Chilmark (including Menemsha), or Aquinnah.
