Quaint, historic, breathe-taking!
Martha’s Vineyard is a Yankee treasure not to be missed.
Located off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, the island still maintains its historic seafaring roots with sights and sounds from a bygone era. Explore pristine beaches and sand dunes, art galleries, great theater, shopping in quaint boutiques, and great dining throughout the island. The ocean provides opportunities for fishing, whale watching, diving, boating, or parasailing. On this island oasis are three gorgeous inns to visit in May at a fraction of the regular rate.
Starting at $89 per night, this is the perfect destination for a relaxing retreat. The Dockside Inn
, a family friendly Victorian home in the historic village of Oak Bluffs, has a harbor-side location. Although built in 1989, this house resembles an 1800s Victorian Inn with all the modern conveniences for today’s traveler. The Madison Inn
, located in town, has 15 comfortable and tastefully decorated guest rooms. Near great shopping, theaters, historical sites, and outdoor activities, the Inn provides a perfect location for exploring Martha’s Vineyard. The Nashua House Hotel
is a historic seaside hotel overlooking the ocean or historic downtown Oak Bluffs. Stay in one of its cozy historic rooms, full of unique architectural features and cottage furnishings. Incredible pre-season pricing is available at all three of these quaint historic inns. Visit their Facebook page and website for more information and availability.
Located in the heart of the historic district of Annapolis, “the sailing capital of the world,” in Maryland is the famous Scotlaur Inn Bed and Breakfast
. Family owned for three generations, this inn provides a glimpse of the past as their guests stay in rooms that look and feel like the 1900s only with the modern conveniences for the discerning travelers. All 10 rooms have private baths, televisions, wireless internet, and air conditioning. While visiting Annapolis, see the United States Naval Academy, tour St. John’s college or visit the famous Paca Gardens.
Once a Benedictine monastery and built in 1888, The Priory
is a family owned fully restored 42-room boutique hotel located on Pittsburgh’s north shore, just minutes from downtown in historic Deutschtown. In 1986, 25 guest rooms were restored to their 19th-century elegance with period antiques and reproductions to compliment the unique architectural features. Then in 2011, an additional 17 guestrooms were added to the property, blending the new construction with the existing. The Priory offers state-of-the-
art meeting space, a fitness center and countless amenities for the traveler. A bustling and thriving center, Pittsburg has a plethora of museums and universities to visit, as well as great shopping, cruises on the river, and fantastic dining.
