J.MAK has been hitting the road with all the MAKs in his new Grand Wagoneer for a few Grand American Road Trips. Here are some highlights from East Coast drivable J.MAKers ...


The MAKs loved Chatham Bars Inn's boardwalks to the beach, kiddie pool, kids club, beach cabanas and dinners sans kids!

NEWS: Chatham Bars Inn has been nominated for Best Waterfront Hotel in the U.S. by a panel of experts for USA Today along with 10 other resorts in the U.S. Vote for CBI here before Aug. 15!

The MAKs zipped over to nearby Troutbeck, an hour away from Chez MAK in New York's Hudson Valley, for some summer fun and a stay in the resort's new Benton House. This historic house was renovated with 1 and 2BR suites that each have a porch/patio and their own private entrance. 

DON'T MISS: Summer Pool Parties

Then, on Mondays, after 11am check out, stay on property to enjoy the Pool, play tennis, take a bike on a ride, use our gym, get a massage, etc. 


J.MAK brought Mama.MAK to Martha's Vineyard for a visit to the Harborview Hotel last spring. And while they did not lounge by the pool because it was April, they did sightsee around charming Edgartown, ride bikes and visit Edgartown Light (right in front of the hotel!).

 The 160th Martha's Vineyard Agricultural Fair - Aug. 18-21, 2022. Enjoy rides, games, shucking contests, skillet toss, horse pull, woodsmen competition, dog & livestock shows. The perfect end of the summer event for the whole family.

Guest chef, Alex Pineda, of Landing Restaurant in Marblehead, MA, and finalist on Bravo’s Food Network TV Show, “Chopped”, will join Bettini's Culinary Director, Michael Gottlieb, to take guests on a culinary journey.


J.MAK took the down to St. Michael's, Maryland for a solo trip to visit the Inn at Perry Cabin where he hit the links, boated and biked around the charming town - and caught a little downtime overlooking the tranquil Miles River, too.

DON'T MISS: The Toast
- At 5pm every evening a bell chimes in true Naval tradition and glasses are raised for a toast under the flag to Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry and his battle cry, “Don’t Give Up The Ship.”
