Tucked above Gay Head Cliffs, the Outermost Inn promises both a luxurious setting and striking vistas of the Nantucket Sound and the Elizabeth Islands in the distance.

For over 70 years, the gray-shingled cottages and scenic property of Menemsha Cottages & Inn have evoked the wealthy ambience that defines Martha’s Vineyard. At the Menemsha, guests reside in exclusive cottages, carriage house rooms, inn rooms or a suite. The decor includes light pine furniture, the works of local artisans, a fireplace, private deck or screened-in porch, and many rooms feature spectacular views of the water and the landmark Gay Head Lighthouse. Though a continental breakfast is available, the inn offers a food delivery service from a local grocer to your room. Situated on 14 acres, the inn is a short walk to Dutcher Dock, the heart of Menemsha’s commercial fishing wharf.

Best Family Accommodations
Duck Inn
Where: 10 Duck Pond Way, Chilmark, MA 02552
Phone: +1 (508) 645-9018
Rates: $105 – $195
Arriving at Elise LeBovit’s Duck Inn, which is situated in the midst of a grassy meadow, one feels as though they’ve wandered into the home of an eccentric aunt with its comforting assortment of clutter mixed with a welcome, relaxed air. Martha’s Vineyard accommodations frequently frown on children, but the Duck Inn embraces them and the kids know it. Today it seems like a hippie-haven gone somewhat straight, but the inn was originally part of an 18th century home built by a Native American seafarer. Rooms are whimsically decorated – don’t be surprised to see a kimono hanging from your bedroom wall. The pink stucco living room’s centerpiece is a 1928 Glenwood stove, but equally charming are the piano and fireplace. Breakfast fare is “gourmet organic” and can include pear-couscous muffins or chocolate-raspberry crepes.
