As we enter the winter on Martha's Vineyard, things could start to look a little bleak as we start to think about shorter days and the possibility of staying home more often, especially during these Covid times.  However Slough Farm in Edgartown is offering workshops and classes to beat the winter blues.

As the name suggests this inn and restaurant sits at the western end of Martha’s Vineyard, in the shadow of the famous Gay Head Lighthouse. You might think it's far, but it's so worth the drive, even in the winter and maybe more so when you get to experience the island in it's quiet un-touristy glory.  South Road takes you through Chilmark and as the road gets close to the ocean you are rewarded with beautiful water views and glimpses of maginifcent summer homes that are usually shielded from view by the trees.    Once you get to Aquinnah you realize why you came -  quiet roads, miles of unspoilt beaches and magnificent views like no other on the Vineyard  - its a real feeling of escape from it all.

2020 UPDATE: Please check Ma.gov and local hospital websites for Covid 19 updates regarding travelling to the Vineyard this Thanksgiving - be safe, socially distance, wash your hands and please wear a mask when out in public places.

September on Martha’s Vineyard is a magical month and were all breathing again after the excitement of summer.  Vineyarders love this month as the daytime temperatures hover between the mid 60s to 70s and evenings are much more comfortable than the sweltering July and August nights. 

Featherstone Center for the Arts is a cultural mecca for all kinds creative endeavours on Martha's Vineyard.   The mission of Featherstone is to create a community arts space for the Vineyard's year round residents and summer visitors.  Winter workshops, including life drawing and pottery classes, chocolate festivals and various shows give way to kids art camps, adult classes, and the Flea market during the summer months.  With new events being added all the time to the brand new multi million dollar gallery space, pottery studio and arts center.

They're a secret for a reason.... but we might tell....

There's lots going on for Memorial Day 2018 as the islands restaurants and hotels have been gradually opening up after this long winter stretch. Check out the local papers and what's happening on MV Facebook page for restaurant openings, many of which have specials at this time of the year, such as dollar oysters at Beach Road!

While most people know the Chilmark Tavern for a wonderful summer dining experience, during the off-season the Tavern is transformed into an arts center that attracts the best of the island’s creative artists from poets, to singers, dancers, artists, knitters, piano players and performers.
