Hotels on Martha's Vineyard

The view of Martha's Vineyard during a New England spring day.While summer is the perfect season for visiting Edgartown, any time of year is a great time to book your stay at Vineyard Square Hotel & Suites. Spring in New England, also known as shoulder season or off-season, is an excellent time of year to visit Martha’s Vineyard. For anyone looking to live like a local, there’s no better time to check out all there is to do and see throughout the region.

Why Visit during the Shoulder Season

If you want to visit Martha’s Vineyard before the summer crowds descend on the charming towns, pack your bags and plan your vacation for the off-season. Starting late fall/early winter and lasting until about May, this time of year allows you a more intimate experience. In addition to escaping the large crowds, there are other perks to visiting our Edgartown hotel during this time. Unlike during the summer, you can easily get your car onto the ferry. While there are several transportation options, we understand sometimes it’s nice to have the flexibility that comes from bringing your own vehicle along with you.

What to Do during Your Visit

As previously stated, one of the biggest perks of visiting during the shoulder season is avoiding the summer crowds. While businesses may shut down during winter, they start coming alive in spring. Just check their hours before visiting, as they may still be operating under shortened hours. There are several things to do during your visit, but here are just three options. For more help deciding what to do, simply talk with our concierge staff.
