I never went to sleep away camp, but I was very excited to stay at Summer Camp Hotel in Oak Bluffs, Martha’s Vineyard. In seeing the decor online I immediately became obsessed. They love color and have such a playful yet chic design that I knew I couldn’t stay anywhere else once I saw it. The building which houses the hotel has actually been around since 1879 and resides on the former Methodist camp grounds where they would hold….summer camp! With a theme in place they really went above and beyond to give it a chic summer camp vibe that would bring nostalgia to guests, but also amazing accommodations, which made this hotel snob feel right at home.
The amazing space was designed by Rachel Reider and her team. Rachel is the mastermind behind all of the beautiful hotels from Lark Hotels. She is a girl after my own heart who loves mixing colors, textures and patterns and knows that one of the most important keys to design is remembering the teeny design details. Those details most wouldn’t even consider, but she does and it then becomes a total statement piece. I walked into the hotel and never wanted to leave. That’s how at home it felt to me. It was like everything detail Camila would love was considered and done. Because of the summer camp atmosphere they even have music playing throughout the day and I walked into 80’s music piping thru the hotel. If you know me even a little then you know that I love some good 80’s music. It’s my favorite. Cue Hungry Eyes playing thru the speakers when we ventured into the playroom and I think we all decided then and there that would have to make many return trips here.
Ok, now enough talking and more photos! Amazing brand is key and I loved their logo design, which was front and center when you arrived at the hotel.
Yellow has become my go to color lately. Sorry, orange. You will always be my first love, but I’m totally have a moment with yellow.
A front porch is always on my wish list for a new home so, I was in love with the massive porch full of different seating arrangements.
Welcome desk area complete with a smily face bell that my children hit one too many times for my liking, but the staff was always so sweet. They kept popping out asking the boys what they could help them with.
Grasscloth covered the entire welcome area of the hotel. A use a texture that helps bring nature inside, but isn’t cheesy beachy.
I was obsessed with the sense of movement the lighting gave to the space.
Nautical rope lamp which again introduced texture and a nod to the surroundings done in amazing way.
Air plants were sprinkled throughout the walls.
The fabric on the curtains reminded me of waves, which I’m sure is not a coincidence.
I spent a lot of time hanging out in those hanging chairs.
The canteen has a fun summer camp vibe and it’s filled with candy bars, cracker jacks, etc.
We ended up staying in a water view king suite that worked perfectly for us. The boys had a pull out couch to sleep in with their own TV which they loved.
Want to see even more? I did a facebook live video while I was there to give you a tour of all of it!
