Looking for a unique Thanksgiving this year? Don't want to entertain a dozen guests after staying up all night cooking? Would you rather have some rest and relaxation this Thanksgiving Season? Why not consider booking some time at the beautiful and historic Mansion House at Martha's Vineyard? During the off-season, the roads are quiet, the beaches are still stunning, and there is plenty to see and do.
The Mansion House is the Islands largest health club and indoor pool, and yes ladies they have a day spa too! The Mansion House was built in 1791 and rebuilt in 2003, offering your family not only history but modern comfort and convenience as well. Winter rates begin at $99/night, and pets are allowed in some rooms. Once settled in at the Mansion House, enjoy walking around Vineyard Haven. Check with local restaurants and shops for off-season hours.
Owen Park Beach Harbor is a within walking distance of the Mansion House, and offers gorgeous views and an open, sandy beach. Also nearby is Eastville Beach, near the bridge between Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluff. Two state parks to visit on the island are Joseph Sylvia State Park and South Beach State Park.
Plan to attend the 16th Annual Thanksgiving Day Festival in West Tisbury, Friday and Saturday November 29-30.
