Dog-Friendly Activities in Oak Bluffs

Both you and your four-legged friend are welcome to go on a lark to our Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard boutique hotel Summercamp. With a dog-friendly suite available, Summercamp is the perfect home base for you and your pup while you're exploring the Vineyard. Drop the dog bed off (or let us know if you need to borrow one) and hit the town with our recommendations for dog-friendly activities in Oak Bluffs.

One of the best parts of having a dog is that you get to enjoy time outside to help stretch your dog's legs. Martha's Vineyard is the perfect place to spend time with your dog on the beach, the water, or in a state park. This time of year, dogs are allowed on all Martha's Vineyard beaches any time of day. You'll find other dogs for yours to play with and miles of sandy beaches for throwing a ball. We love Joseph Sylvia State Beach, just a 10-minute drive from Summercamp. We also enjoy hiking in Trade Wind Fields Preserve, 72 acres of conservation land where dogs can run free. With trails that go through wooded areas and border sandplains, this preserve is a unique Martha's Vineyard spot for you and your dog to explore.

If you want to get out on the water, Island Spirit Kayak welcomes dogs on any of their paddling tours. Head out for a half day paddle or a shorter tour at sunset, moonrise, or sunrise. Island Spirit Kayak will provide life jackets for your dog too.

After you've worked up the need for a bite to eat and a beer, Offshore Ale Co. is the perfect dog-friendly restaurant in Oak Bluffs. Dogs are welcome on the patio, which is the best place to sit when the weather's nice anyway. Enjoy an East Chop Lighthouse blond ale and some beer-steamed mussels while your dog rests easy at your feet.

After your meal, head to our favorite ice cream shop in Oak Bluffs, Ben & Bill's Chocolate Emporium, for a scoop to enjoy while you walk around Oak Bluffs with your dog. Our relaxing suite at Summercamp is waiting for you after a day full of dog-friendly activities in Oak Bluffs.
