There's a sense and a serenity to what we call Vineyard style. It's not a fashion statement - it's a thoughtful mentality to the both subtle and dramatic beauty that surrounds the island. It's a commitment to preserve the distinct memories and experience of Martha's Vineyard, creating that dream of being a part of this island into a unique reality for you and your family and friends.
