August 2010 marks our 5th summer on Martha's Vineyard. One of the best things about the Vineyard is the beaches. So, beach access is important. In Oak Bluffs there is a stretch of several B&Bs on Seaview Avenue just across the street from Pay Beach and the Ink Well. Over the years we've stayed at all of them. Isabelle's Beach House is, by far, the best B&B on Seaview Avenue. It's probably the best B&B in Oak Bluffs.
The location cannot be beat. Isabelle's is a few blocks from Circuit Avenue, the heart of Oak Bluffs. It's a five minute walk from the Oak Bluffs ferry dock. Most important, Isabelle's is a stone's throw from the beach. And there are beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas (first come first served) available for guests. Of course there's an outdoor shower.
The rooms at Isabelle's are bright, fresh, and quite comfortable. We had AC, a ceiling fan and cable TV in our room. The rooms are cleaned and freshened every day with fluffy white towels and cotton bedding.
One great aspect of Isabelle's is the porch. There are a dozen or so recliners and rocking chairs on the porch, from which one can relax and watch the sun rise, the beach-goers, and the steady flow of vacationers going to and from town.
But the best treat at Isabelle's is the afternoon cookies and lemonade. Each afternoon guests are provided warm fresh chocolate chip cookies and ice cold lemonades to enjoy on the porch or inside in the sitting room. Several guests we spoke with planed their day to be back at Isabelle's in the afternoon so as not to miss the cookies. They are that good.
Isabelle is charming, welcoming, professional, and very knowledgeable about the Vineyard and it's summer activities, so she can help plan a day or an entire vacation. The staff at Isabelle's is also first rate.
