Martha's Vineyard

Best way to travel to Martha's Vineyard from DC?

We are flying to the vineyard from DC in August and are interested in learning about the best method of transportation to get there. We would like to drive but cannot because the ferry from Woods Hole to the island is booked for the dates we need. What are your thoughts about other options?

  1. Flying direct DC to MVA (expensive)
  2. Flying DC to Boston Logan - (seems like a hassle to then get from Logan to Woods Hole then Ferry to MVY)
  3. Flying DC to Nantucket (we love this idea but wonder where we would stay overnight for a day since the ferry timing doesn't match flight times)

Any other suggestions or ideas?

Sorry—-we stayed in a bed and breakfast near Nantucket (wish I could remember the name). There were about 6 guests and the House was very sophisticated—we didn’t even see the owner.

That is an inspired idea! People book the ferries so early, but if you can get a reservation on the inter- island ferry, that would be fun. We just got home from MV and flew Cape Air from Logan in Boston. But each ticket was $600 and we felt like we were flying in an old rickety Plymouth Caravan for an hour.

If you do stay in NantucketThe Beachside at Nantucket would be a lovely place to stay and isn't ridiculously expensive.
