edgartown hotel special

Vineyard Square virtually untouched by Superstorm Sandy.

Amazingly, the hotel’s only impact of Sandy was a few roof shingles. We feel very blessed and our hearts go out to the millions of Americas (including some of our guests) who have lost loved ones or homes in this devastating storm.

Here at The Square we worked to get our guests off the island last Saturday before Sandy bore down. Then we sat and listened to the wind howl and marveled at the photos of the streets by the Oak Bluffs ferry station awash in ocean waves.

For an island used to being battered by the elements, Sandy was quite minor in the scheme of things. The Vineyard was very lucky in this one. As the Martha’s Vineyard Times put it, “Martha’s Vineyard dodged nature’s deadliest fury. Had Sandy deviated from a path that meteorologists acknowledged was unusual — a slow jog parallel to the Eastern Seaboard, followed by a sharp turn west over New Jersey — the effects could have been far more severe.”

Clean up on the island (downed trees, minor damage) has mostly been completed and roads are clear – ferries running fine. We hope you can regroup on your end and plan a getaway to visit us before the full hotel shuts down after Christmas in Edgartown. We are running some truly amazing special deals right now aimed at helping you sneak in a final getaway before the holidays. Check them out and come visit in November or early December!

Martha's vineyard fall beers
Fall beers with the flavors of pumpkin and spice

Sure a cold beer refreshes in summertime, but the staff at the Square has a special affinity for Fall’s heavier microbrews and seasonal ales. These richer, often spicier, beers simply taste like autumn — with hints of cinnamon, chocolate, pumpkin, and pear. Check out these staff favorites from the Vineyard’s own Offshore Ale Company:

Hops Farm Road Pale Ale: Super crisp and less sweet than Offshore’s regular IPA, this beer is made from island-grown hops.

The Great Pumpkin: Offshore uses 150 pounds of fresh pumpkin roasted in the brewery’s wood-fired oven then tossed in their mash tun where it is lightly hopped and spiced.

Octoberfest: A classic lager with slightly sweet malt note balanced with hops

Steeprock Stout: Although offered year-round, this inky stout is a great dark, full-flavored beer for cooler autumn nights.

Tip from GM, Joanne Sardini: “While I like The Great Pumpkin alone, I prefer ‘The Charlie Brown’ – half pumpkin, half stout. YUM!”
