Getting Here

MV Martha's VineyardMartha’s Vineyard is an island about 7 miles off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

There are no connecting bridges. So unless you fly directly, your journey will include a 45-minute ferry ride.

You’ll find that your retreat begins on the ferry, as you see the land slip away and look forward to new horizons. (Really, you’ll feel yourself breathe more deeply and slowly as soon as you start up the gangplank.)

You won’t need a car — everything you might need is within a 5-minute walk of the cottage. We will pick you up and bring you back to the ferry or airport.

If you decide to stay longer, the Island has an excellent public transportation bus system, there are over 44 miles of bike paths crisscrossing the island and there are taxis galore.

I can answer any questions you might have on the ins and outs of traveling to an island. Just send me an email.

You can park your car at the Steamship Authority. There are several parking lots (they will direct you to the closest available) and then they run shuttle buses down to the ferry terminal.

The Steamship Authority website has all the details on parking costs and sailing schedules.


If you are flying:

There are more and more options for flying in all the time. You might need to make a small connecting flight on Cape Cod Air if you are coming from a great distance.
