THE OAK BLUFFS INN
In 1870, a majestic Victorian home was built on a corner in Oak Bluffs, Martha’s Vineyard and soon began renting rooms to Islanders and wayfarers alike. A century later, Will Elliott and Holley had a vision to turn what was still officially a private residence into a proper Inn. Architect Mark Hutker was enlisted to create the iconic lighthouse design and in 1998 The Oak Bluffs Inn was purchased by its third and current proprietors, Rhonda and Erik Albert. Film director Spike Lee has stayed in The Inn’s Penthouse Suite, jazz musician Wynton Marsalis gave an impromptu concert in the living room, and personalities the likes of Woody Harrelson, Johnny Knoxville, Citizen Cope, G.Love, Gregory Porter and Bell Hooks have all been guests at the storied Circuit Avenue address. Today’s OB Inn combines classic Victorian elegance with a modern coastal charm.
