A few blocks north of downtown Edgartown, this friendly 19th-century Gothic Revival–style B&B has plenty of antiques and chintz like the nearby Charlotte Inn, but is airier and slightly less expensive (befitting its less central location). The 17 individually decorated rooms, freshened up during a recent renovation, have charming details: painted four-posters, dormered windows, skylights, small sitting areas, antique silver hairbrushes laid out on side tables, and a cow motif that reminds owner Maggie White of the ones she keeps on her West Tisbury farm. Adding to the homey tone are the chocolate-chip pecan-cinnamon cookies at afternoon tea, berry pancakes for breakfast, box lunches for the beach, and Maggie's Labradors, which will cheer you up if you've left your own pooch at home. But there's no lack of mod cons: AC, cable, Wi-Fi, a sauna and spa treatments, an exercise room, a 27-foot Boston whaler available for charter, as well as that Edgartown godsend—a dedicated off-street parking lot. The Hob Knob also rents out two nearby homes—a four-bedroom renovated schoolhouse and a five-bedroom house with a private pool—with daily housekeeping, concierge service, and access to the Hob Knob spa.
