A Century of Shearer Cottage

Shearer Cottage celebrates 100 years

Welcome to Shearer Cottage, family-owned and operated with pride since 1903. Shearer Cottage is nestled in a quiet, woodsy area in the Highlands of East Chop in Oak Bluffs on the Island of Martha's Vineyard. Our cottage overlooks the Baptist Temple Park, where religious revivals once took place. Our convenient location is a hop, skip and a jump to expansive beaches, picturesque bike trails and jogging paths, public golf courses and tennis courts, restaurants, shops and the many other attractions of Oak Bluffs. It is close to, yet comfortably removed from, the hustle and bustle of downtown Oak Bluffs and is centrally located to the other Island villages.

Our guests enjoy relaxing at Shearer Cottage which has six cozy studios, wrap-around porches with antique rocking chairs and wicker furniture, spacious side yards and a large living room. Each studio is decorated in pleasant country style and provides guests with cable television, kitchenette and private bath. Smoking is confined to yards and porches. Shearer Cottage is ideal for large gatherings and can accommodate many guests (15 to 20) at one time.
