Top U.S. Seaside Inns
Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts
A short walk from the center of Edgartown, the Hob Knob (doubles from $395) has the notion of coastal living down pat. Inside the three-story Gothic Revival building are 17 light-filled rooms dressed in toiles and stripes, each grounded by an English antique or two. Breakfast is made to order from local farm ingredients, including homemade fig preserves, and served in two sunny rooms, one with Currier & Ives blue-patterned plates nearly covering the walls from floor to ceiling. Book a treatment in the small spa, bike the island’s well-maintained trails, or go fishing in the inn’s Boston Whaler.
Don’t Miss: Clamming or oystering like a native—the hotel will give you the tools and know-how to bring home the seafood, then serve it up back at the inn.
