On 11 acres bordering South Beach near Katama Bay, the Winnetu caters to families in a way that most of the more stylish inns on the island do not. It also has a pleasantly lazy pace—even the front desk shuts down at 6 pm (8 on Fridays). The 50 suites and studios all have washer-dryers and kitchens—which can be stocked for you in advance—as well as decks or patios facing the ocean. (Ask for an upper floor, as the view is somewhat distant: Due to strict zoning laws, the property is set back about 250 yards from the water.) There's also a private cottage for those seeking more privacy. A 2007 refurbishment introduced a bolder, cleaner look, with lots of blond wood and blue-and-white printed fabrics. The main draw here, though, is the variety of family activities: There's outdoor ping-pong, foosball, a putting green, canoeing and kayaking excursions on Poucha Pond, daily lighthouse and dune trips, tea and cookies every afternoon, and Wednesday-night clambakes. A wellness center, opened in summer 2006, hosts classes, excursions, and spa treatments. A three-mile bike path and ferry shuttle service link the resort to Edgartown. At Lure, the excellent and surprisingly ambitious restaurant, chef Mark Goldberg (formerly of Mistral in Boston) focuses on local, sustainable ingredients, such as Katama Bay oysters, fresh-caught fish, and produce grown just down the road at Edgartown's Farm Institute. The Winnetu is surrounded by the affiliated Matakesett Properties and Tennis Club, a collection of single-family homes and townhouses available for weekly rental—convenient for families with kids, as long as you don't mind the 1970s ski-chalet look.

Open late May through late October.
