TravelPod Member ReviewsPequot Hotel Oak Bluffs
This is an absolutely charming hotel a block from the beach and a languid ten-minute's walk from Oak Bluffs harbor and ferry. The room we have is small, but the point of a stay here is to be exploring MV and not sitting inside, so that's not a problem. For those who care about such things, there was no tv or phone in our room -- not a problem for us in the least. The only slightly troublesome aspect was that the wireless connection did not really work in the rooms, but the a/c did. But, the bed was comfortable and the towels fluffy.
The staff are friendly and every afternoon they set out the most delicious chocolate-chip cookies I've ever had! After a long day biking all over the island, our final five miles of the trip concentrated the mind on those cookies and lemonade awaiting us. They did not disappoint as we munched and sipped on the porch swing.

Breakfast at the hotel on Sunday was a lot less busy than in Queens. Actually there was only one other person. This time there was no attempt at ****** hot food, just cereal, toast or bagels, but this time with cream cheese - perfect!

Having had quite enough of winter, yak tracs, frozen garage doors, ice dams, single lane roads and sub freezing tempertures we decided to leave a day early and get outta town and head to warmer climes. Drove around NYC on the Merritt Parkway to the New Jersey Turnpike. Made it as far as Richmond Virginia and heavy commuter traffic around DC and Richmond before stopping for the ...

... bus back to Oak Bluffs, returned the bikes and found we had just missed the Oak Bluffs ferry. So we visited the old tyme carousel and played a few games of roller air hockey and some arcade games before catching the bus to Vineyard Haven and getting on the ferry.
The bus trip back to Boston was exhausting--not in a harrowing way, just that as you get off the islands and back to 'normal' life, all that adrenaline and sense ...
