Historic Attractions

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.

Trip Advisor

In keeping with its historic atmosphere, Oak Bluffs is home to several nationally recognized landmarks

The Martha’s Vineyard Camp Meeting Association, situated four blocks from the Pequot Hotel, offers a unique experience for visitors. Consisting of nearly 300 imaginative and colorful “gingerbread” cottages, this is the most perfectly preserved collection of Carpenter Gothic style architecture in the world. The cottages are arranged in loose concentric circles around the open-air Tabernacle in Trinity Park.  Nearby Trinity United Methodist Church supports a year-round congregation.  During the summer season, concerts and other events take place in and around the Tabernacle.  In August, the annual “Grand Illumination” is a spectacle to behold.

The Flying Horses Carousel, at the foot of Circuit Avenue and three blocks from the Pequot, is the nation’s oldest operating platform carousel. It is one of two known carousels built by Charles W.F. Dare in 1876.  In 1884, the Flying Horses were brought to Oak Bluffs.  Local Vineyarders and visitors have been riding the painted ponies in hopes of catching the brass ring ever since.

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.
