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.

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.
