The Field Club on Martha’s Vineyard has quality amenities including the pool, racquet sports, fitness facilities and luxury homes.
Members pay $100,000 to use the amenities or they bought a Field Club home that sells for about $4 million.
The Field Club is affiliated with The Boathouse, a private island club offering fine dining, views of Edgartown’s historic harbor and access to yachts.
The Boathouse costs an additional $50,000 per year plus $8,000 in annual fees.
Located seven miles east of Cape Cod and just over 90 miles southeast of Boston, the island of Martha’s Vineyard is known for scenic views and a vacation spot for former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
Obama announced this week that he will be holding his 60th birthday party on the island.
