Whether you're preparing to walk down the aisle, plan a high school reunion or gather together the extended family for a celebration, securing locations through Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Reservations offers you assistance with at least one element of the process. When it seems that all of the accommodations are booked, we can find you a place to call home for a couple of nights. Generally, minimum stays do apply. A three-night minimum is usually required for July, August and holiday weekends; at other times of the year, you can expect a two-night minimum for trips that include a Friday or Saturday overnight.

Renting out accommodations is an excellent idea for large groups because everyone can stay together. Wedding guests need not travel from afar to attend the events. After all, the only transportation to the island is via ferry or plane, so ensuring that all guests are already present is key.

For family or high school reunions, party-goers can rejoice over the good old times, when they spent practically every moment together. Some properties do serve these large group events well. Some amount of pre-payment will be required for a group stay, and a cancellation policy will apply. The exact cancellation policy depends upon the establishment; however, a 30-45 day policy is not unusual for a large group

Before starting to scout out potential places where you'd like to host your event, understanding the rules and guidelines that govern the majority of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket properties helps you to have a more productive search.
