Hob Knob Heaven at the Spa
Look and feel your best on the big day! Relax and unwind with your bridal party, friends, and family (or go solo for some quality quiet time) at Hob Knob’s Rejuvenation Spa. Choose from a menu of deeply satisfying body treatments and massages designed to soothe and refresh your body and uplift your spirits. Bridal and bachelorette parties, pre-wedding prep, and post-wedding retreats are all great options to make the most of your getaway time on Martha’s Vineyard.
Our spa facilities include a fitness center, steam shower, and sauna. Our staff is happy to arrange private Pilates or yoga sessions with professional instructors and personal trainers, manicures, and pedicures, as well as offer recommendations for hair salons and other wellness and beauty services on the island of Martha’s Vineyard.
Boating + Fishing in Island Waters
The Hob Knob, a 27-foot Boston Whaler with twin 200-horsepower Yamaha four-stroke engines, gets you safely and comfortably to all the island’s best fishing spots. It’s piloted by a U.S. Coast Guard–certified captain, a skilled fisherman and storyteller, who will keep you entertained along the way with colorful island stories and fish tales. The waters around Martha’s Vineyard are world-class fishing grounds rich in bluefish, striped bass, bonito, and more. Our boat comes complete with rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Surfcasting excursions are also available.
Not into fishing? Enjoy a relaxing sunset or harbor cruise, or venture to one of our neighboring islands in the coastal waters of southern New England.
Seaside Golf on Martha's Vineyard
Looking for some world-class golf with ocean views? Martha’s Vineyard boasts several highly regarded golf courses. Spend a few days with your favorite foursome, and come away with some amazing Martha’s Vineyard golf memories. From Farm Neck’s classic seaside setting overlooking Nantucket Sound in Oak Bluffs, to Vineyard Haven’s Mink Meadows course along the island’s north shore, you’ll get plenty of fresh ocean air along the links. There’s also the Royal & Ancient Chappaquiddick Links for an eclectic, old-fashioned island golf experience.
Round out your time here with a visit to the Vineyard's two micro-breweries, dinner at one of the island’s many fine restaurants, and Hob Knob’s own hearty, made-to-order farm breakfast. And after all that hard work on the links, better book a massage at our Rejuvenation Spa before you head home.
Martha’s Vineyard Farms + Food
Martha’s Vineyard has a centuries-old agricultural heritage, which thrives today on more than 40 working farms around the island. With a focus on local, seasonal, healthy, and delicious cuisine, Hob Knob collaborates with island farmers, fishermen, chefs, and food purveyors to craft custom tours and cooking (and eating!) experiences. The island’s fertile soil results in a bounty of fresh produce, along with fish from local waters, hand-raised oysters and shiitake mushrooms, artisanal cheeses, creamy yogurt, and organic free-range meats.
We'd be delighted to put together a selection of farm- and food-related experiences especially for you, and introduce some of the talented, hard-working folks who help keep the island well-provisioned with healthy, delicious food.
Explore the Island’s History
Let Hob Knob send you off on a private historical tour to all six island towns with a knowledgeable, engaging guide. See classic whaling captains’ homes in Edgartown and view the Edgartown Lighthouse up close. The Martha’s Vineyard Campground in Oak Bluffs encompasses hundreds of brightly colored gingerbread houses, a short drive away from scenic Beach Road and the nearby East Chop Lighthouse. The trip will also take you up-island to the Gay Head Cliffs and to the quaint fishing village of Menemsha, passing by West Tisbury’s bucolic farm fields and Chilmark’s expansive south shore ocean views. This three-hour tour is the perfect way to learn the history of the island and experience many of its most-beloved locales.
Hob Knob can also share with you some easy, self-guided tours, including farms, walking trails, lighthouses, and more. Just around the corner at 59 School Street, be sure to visit the Martha's Vineyard Museum, a fascinating chronicle of the island’s history and its longtime maritime heritage. You may also tour the Vineyard Gazette at 34 South Summer Street, operating since 1846 and still printed on-site every week. Tours are available weekdays by appointment by calling (508) 627-4311.
