In this casual cedar-shingle inn on a tree-lined street, the first floor has a wide porch with rocking chairs—perfect for enjoying coffee or tea with the cookies that are set out in the afternoon. There's also a small breakfast room where you can help yourself to bagels, muffins, and cereal in the morning. The furniture is quirky but comfortable, and the old wing has the most atmosphere. The bustle of downtown Oak Bluffs is a pleasant five-minute walk past Carpenter
Gothic houses, and it's one block from the beaches that line Oak Bluffs–Edgartown Road.
