My husband and I visited Shearer Cottage this past weekend and it was an amazing setting! Lee ( the owner) was awesome and she made every effort to accommodate us during our visit. Shearer Cottage truly epitomizes what a visit to Martha's Vineyard should be! We will definitely be returning guests at this location! The history of the Shearer Family... More

I had a girl's weekend here (rented the entire cottage) to celebrate my 40th birthday and it was simply fabulous!!! Before I arrived, the owner, Lee, was instrumental in helping me with all the island needs such as dinner (shout out to Chef Deon), how to get to the island, and what to do once there. She went above and... More

If you're African American and going to Martha's Vineyard staying here should be a must on your list. There is NO other place that has the long standing history of an Inn family owned and operated as this place since 1902!!! Thats 104 years folks! It was my honor to be able to stay here. Yes you can find a... More

We have been visiting MV for a few years now and just found out about Shearer Cottage! It was so different from stays at other places in OB that we've been to. Shearer Cottage is like a place removed from the bustle and like going to a retreat. We all live in a very busy world and this was truly... More

When I arrived, there was a LOVELY hand written note from Lee and Emily welcoming me. True their is no ac, so it was a bit hot in this heatwave that is happening, but the fan was... More

I just came back from an amazing vacation at Shearer Cottage. A group of my friends and I stayed in room 6 and 3 (needed two rooms!). Lee was extremely welcoming as we arrived and allowed us to check in early. She came by each room as we were settling in to give us a vase of fresh cut flowers... More

I have stayed at Shearer Cottages 3 times now! This is so perfect, especially when traveling alone, as I do. The owners are lovely and it's very quiet and private, I have met various family members, and all are just wonderful. I hope they read the reviews, because I hope they are pet friendly, no more solo, I have my... More

Shearer Cottage is located in a quiet woodsy area. It is a small, traditional Cape-style inn with friendly owners and care takers. Small kitchens in the rooms are great perk. Within walking distance to downtown Oak Bluffs. Shearer Cottage is clean, quiet and reasonably priced with free wifi, kitchens in the rooms, basic cable and parking. However, they don't have...
