Dear Friends

We have had a fun filled glorious summer and as autumn arrives on the Vineyard we await warm days with bright sunshine and cool starlit nights.

I joined the Hob Knob team earlier this year and have now assumed the position of General Manager.  With much anticipation I take on this role, looking forward to a new season, new faces and some fresh ideas for packages and events.

Autumn brings a slower pace and beautiful colors to the island scenery.  The Vineyard has much to offer at this time of year, from hiking nature trails, to fishing off the tranquil beaches, to the Food & Wine Festival right here in Edgartown in October.  Cultural and artistic events still abound, such as the upcoming series at the Yard this weekend with visiting Tony Award nominated Broadway actor Andre DeShields.  Here at the hotel we are offering fall specials for the month of September, and Columbus Day and Thanksgiving holiday weekends.  Book early and enjoy these special offers as well as reduced weekly rates for our private Hob Knob homes next door.

Please join us and visit the Island during what locals consider to be the best time of the year.
