While the lighthouses of Martha's Vineyard are a perennial source of fascination for history buffs, these towering landmarks possess measures of stoic beauty, drama, intrigue and adventure so powerful, they routinely capture the imagination of even casual observers. Guests of the hotel are advised to start off "close to home," as the Harbor View Lighthouse - perhaps the island's most iconic - is virtually on-property. Your concierge will be happy to provide directions and information on the Vineyard's other four soaring beacons - Aquinnah (a.k.a. "Gay Head), Cape Pogue, East Chop and West Chop.
For those who appreciate history and love to explore, there are many fun tours: private island tours, Gingerbread Cottage Tours, "Jaws" Tour, Oyster Farm Tours and Historic Walking Tours.
