An Aerial Shot of Cuttyhunk

 

Since fourteen of the Elizabeth Islands are owned by the Forbes family and the other one restricting the entrance of any visitor, you’d be left with no other choice than the modest island of Cuttyhunk, which is not that bad at all as this also offers an undeniable charm that would allure just about any traveler.

This westernmost Elizabeth Island is publicly accessible, and aside from serving the Gosnold municipality, it also offers numerous home rentals and bed and breakfasts ready to welcome travelers from the main US Island.

And although Cuttyhunk could only offer its visitors with one restaurant and one retail store, this didn’t stop NY Times Travel writer Laura House to spend a night and see for herself the only Elizabeth Island publicly open for travelers (“Tranquility on an Island off Cape Cod”).

Here’s an excerpt from her article:
 

Many visitors to Cuttyhunk bunk on boats in the tidy harbor, but there is limited lodging on shore. In addition to the eight rooms at the Fishing Club, there is also the Avalon, an understated but handsome mansion with an expansive porch and seven rooms to rent. Both inns were private homes at points in their history, and their communal kitchens and shared living spaces can lend them a camp like feel. For a more private retreat, there are a handful of houses for rent… But even if staying elsewhere, everyone eventually ends up at the Fishing Club, with its white clapboard exterior and cedar outbuildings. It’s the only place for a sit-down breakfast, so while you wait for a table, sink into an Adirondack chair and survey the clay cliffs of Martha’s Vineyard jutting forth like a proud chin.
