The Outermost Inn on the Gay Head Cliffs

The Location

We are located on the western tip of the Vineyard in the town of Aquinnah, high on the prominent Gay Head Cliffs. Because we’re surrounded by the sea and undeveloped landscape, our rooms offer excellent views through large picture windows of this lovely coastal/upland interface. Rooms enjoy views of the Atlantic to the south, Rhode Island and Block Island Sound to the west and all of Vineyard Sound to the north and east. Close at hand are the 20 or more acres of meadow and shrubland that surround the inn. Being located at the western extreme of the Vineyard, we can say that we do enjoy some spectacular sunset skies.

The Original House

We built the original house here on family land in 1971 and have lived here, year ‘round, ever since. In 1989 we restructured the house to fashion a bright, clean and airy seven room inn. The inn offers a generous covered porch overlooking the north facing view of land and sea where, along with the other common areas, lawns and patios, our guests find comfortable spots to relax after breakfast, enjoy an afternoon drink or simply kick back in a lounge chair for a bit of reading or snoozing. All of our rooms feature great views, private baths, phone service and television. Wireless internet is available throughout most of the property. Read More

The Seasons

Seasonally, the Vineyard offers a diverse choice of sights and activities. These include great walking trails, sportfishing from both beach and boat, world famous salt water fly fishing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, excellent biking, birding, beaches for waves, beaches for wading and while these things are available all over the Vineyard, most can be enjoyed right on or from our property.

We have built our lives here in this remote place and are happy to share it. The Outermost Inn allows us to do just that… a chance to share what we believe to be the best of Martha’s Vineyard, a bit of her real quality of life. Come share it with us.
