Off Season Relaxation

My husband and I were visiting the island on our 3rd Wedding Anniversary. Great place to relax, do some biking and very accommodating on our stay. Breakfast is wonderful, good variety and good presentation, along with their afternoon cookies and tea. They even surprised us with a bottle of wine and glasses to share. Our room was small but quaint and fit us well. Definitely will make a return visit to Pequot. Loved the porch with all the rocking chairs, a great place to relax with a glass of wine and to meet new friends.

One block from the beach

Oak Bluffs Town Beach 

One block from our front door, at the end of Pequot Avenue, this beach is typically calm.  It is great for relaxing, walking, swimming or collecting seashells.  We are happy to loan you a beach towel or umbrella (first-come, first-served).

Inkwell Beach

The Inkwell is a popular and historically significant portion of Oak Bluffs Town Beach.  It is a block farther to the right (or South), so within two blocks of the Pequot Hotel.

East Chop Beach

Located just to the west of the Oak Bluffs Harbor entrance, this small beach provides wonderful views of Nantucket Sound and colorful boating activity. Public access is along a footpath from the East Chop Yacht Club, just outside downtown Oak Bluffs.  East Chop Beach is a 10-12 minute walk from the Pequot Hotel — even quicker by bicycle.

Joseph Sylvia State Beach

Two miles of pristine public beach stretch along Beach Road between Oak Bluffs and Edgartown. Access is by bicycle, car, or public bus. From this beach, you can cross the street to the shore and pocket beaches of Sengekontacket Pond.  Both the pond and Nantucket Sound are ideal places for swimming and windsurfing.  Shell fishing is allowed by special permit only. Permits may be purchased at the Oak Bluffs Town Hall on School Street in the Board of Selectmen Office.

South Beach

This is the primary “ocean beach” on Martha’s Vineyard — accessible by public bus, car, or bicycle.  It is a delightful 8.5-mile bike ride from the hotel, almost exclusively along bike paths from Oak Bluffs to Edgartown and South Beach beyond.  If you would like our help arranging a bike rental, with convenient pick-up and drop-off right here at the Pequot, just ask.

Perfect Hotel

This summer will be my 13th year to Martha’s Vineyard for my vacation and I wouldn’t think of staying anywhere but the Pequot Hotel. Everything you could expect at a hotel in Martha’s Vineyard is at the Pequot. The staff and manager Lisa — can’t say enough about them. When I get to the island and walk up the steps to the hotel, I feel right at home. Every year there are renovations and updates.  Perfect location. Only a block to the water.  Short walk to Circuit Avenue shops.  So looking forward to June.
