The Oak Bluffs Inn

Nestled in the heart of Oak Bluffs, this nine-room inn housed in a meticu- lously updated 1870s Victorian—walk- ing distance from both the ferry and the beach—has won legions of devotees over more than two decades. (Guests have included the likes of Spike Lee; Wynton Marsalis, who gave a concert in the living room; Woody Harrelson; and bell hooks.) It’s a stone’s throw to restaurants, galler- ies, and sightseeing, but with the grand front porch and plenty of upscale beachy comforts, you may not bother to leave at the inn at all.
