Exploring the Island
The cow in the Hob Knob logo is inspired by the herd of cattle Maggie keeps on the Island’s bucolic farmlands. Many visitors are amazed that farms actually exist on Martha’s Vineyard. This Island holds many such natural surprises. Of course, there are 124 miles of spectacular beaches and coastline, 350 years of rich history and our varied and sometimes eccentric architecture. But there’s much more. We have thousands of acres of wildlife preserves. There are miles of trails for running, biking, in-line skating, golf, horseback riding, kayaking, tennis and windsurfing. Martha’s Vineyard waters are world renowned for fishing, whether by boat or from the shore. Whether you’d prefer fly-fishing in the striped bass-rich waters off Gay Head, kayaking through Chillmark’s mystical saltwater ponds or clamming for the elusive quahog at low tide, the Hob Knob staff is poised to meet your every request. To help guests explore the Vineyard, The Hob Knob offers bicycle rentals on-premises as well as a private 27’ Boston Whaler, with USCG-certified Captain, for fishing charters, touring or sunset cruises.
