If you want to truly experience the Vineyard, there is no better place to stay than at Kathleen's Kottage. Kathleen and Frank are amazing hosts, welcoming you like long lost family. They know the Vineyard well and are a great source of suggestions and insider information. In fact, one morning, Kathleen kindly took us quahogging or clam gathering. Afterwards, she made a wonderful feast of cherrystone clams on the half shell and larger clams steamed in wine and garlic. Kathleen is an inventive cook and baker -- supplying you with delicious homemade cookies and scones. And her breakfasts are amazing -- different each day, gourmet in quality, made from scratch and wholesome ingredients. Plenty of coffee, muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt, homemade granola etc. followed by a hot breakfast ranging from Portuguese sweet bread French toast to Danish aebleskiver and chorizo frittatas. If you tell her in advance, she will tailor your breakfast to accommodate any food sensitivities, allergies, or preferences. The Kottage is within walking distance to Oak Bluffs commercial center, the Gingerbread cottages, and the ocean beach. Bike trails are easily accessible and there is a place to store your bikes if you desire. The rooms are clean, beautiful and very comfortable. You are free to come and go according to your own schedule (while of course being considerate of other guests). From here it is easy to explore all corners of the island, and then return for a cozy night. But my favorite part was getting to know Kathleen and Frank -- both extraordinary people who offer stimulating conversation, insights into island life, and a warm welcome to a beautiful place to visit.
