This is a list of Martha's Vineyard celebrities, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. Many famous actors, actresses, musicians, and famous public figures have spent time on Martha's Vineyard. Some of these celebrities rent vacation properties while others have estates on the Cape Cod island. Even several U.S. Presidents love to spend vacation time in Martha's Vineyard.

Martha's Vineyard is a long way from Hollywood. An island off the coast of Massachusetts, it has long been a favorite spot of the famous, the wealthy, and the powerful. Why? It's small, quiet, inaccessible, and not very welcoming to paparazzi. Plus, Vineyarders are private and discreet.

Who is the most famous person who is a Martha's Vineyard celebrity? President Barack Obama, who tops our list, regularly vacations at a 28.5 acre summer house on Martha's Vineyard. Bill Clinton often visited Martha's Vineyard during his presidency and he still vacations there today. David Letterman has a home near Herring Creek Farm on Martha's Vineyard. Letterman's good buddy Bill Murray also regularly vacations in Martha's Vineyard.
