The Obamas are happily on their August vacation in Martha's Vineyard for the third year in a row at Blue Heron Farm. The compound sits on 30 acres, with a main house, guest house, boat house, horse barn and pasture land, golf green, and pool.
But where did other past presidents stay while on their coveted time-off?
Take a look at the past haunts of presidents below.

The Madison, Washington, DC
John and Jackie Kennedy started the <a href="http://www.loewshotels.com/en/Hotels/Washington-DC-Hotel/Overview.aspx" target="_hplink">Madison</a> presidential tradition when the hotel opened in 1963. Since then, every presidential couple has stayed at the hotel at least once.
The Carlyle Hotel, New York City
The classy <a href="http://www.thecarlyle.com/" target="_hplink">Carlyle</a> hotel has been a staple of the New York City sophisticate crowd since it first opened in 1930. In the sixties, JFK made his second home in an apartment on the 34th floor, earning the Carlyle the nickname of "the New York White House." In fact, rumor has it that Kennedy used the many tunnels underneath the Carlyle to sneak Marilyn Monroe up to his bedroom after she sang her famous rendition of "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" at his Madison Square Garden birthday bash on May 19, 1962.
The Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa
Aside from hosting every single president since Hoover, the <a href="http://www.arizonabiltmore.com/" target="_hplink">Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa</a> is also one of Senator John McCain's favorite spots. McCain not only threw his second wedding here, but also used the Biltmore's lawn during the 2008 election for his concession speech.
Grand Wailea Resort Hotel and Spa, Maui, Hawaii
The <a href="http://www.grandwailea.com/" target="_hplink">Grand Wailea Resort Hotel and Spa</a> was a favorite getaway of George H.W. Bush during his presidency.
Hotel del Coronado, Coronado, California
Beginning with Benjamin Harrison in 1891, eleven US presidents have vacationed at the <a href="http://www.hoteldel.com/" target="_hplink">Hotel del Coronado</a>, a National Historic Landmark, including William McKinley, William Howard Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard M. Nixon, Gerald R. Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.
The Renaissance Mayflower, Washington, DC
The <a href="http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/wassh-the-mayflower-renaissance-washington-dc-hotel/" target="_hplink">Renaissance Mayflower Hotel</a> in Washington, D.C. isn't just preferred by living presidents, but the dead as well. When Calvin Coolidge was elected president in 1925, he was unable to attend his inauguration ball because he was mourning the death of his sixteen-year-old son who died from blood poisoning two weeks earlier. Rumor has it that every inauguration day since Coolidge's death, the lights in the Renaissance ballroom flicker and the elevator malfunctions right around the time that Silent Cal's presidential festivities would have commenced. Seems like the former President is more than making up for his absence years ago.
The Equinox, Manchester Village, Vermont
Now a luxury golf resort, <a href="http://www.equinoxresort.com/" target="_hplink">The Equinox </a> was a favorite getaway of the Lincolns who spent many of their summers up in Vermont.
The Waldorf-Astoria, New York City
Since Herbert Hoover moved in to the hotel following his presidency, every single U.S. president has either stayed in or lived at the famed <a href="http://www.waldorfastoria.com/" target="_hplink">Waldorf-Astoria</a>. Whenever a commander-in-chief stays in the Presidential suite, individually monogrammed towels are displayed in the bathroom and every detail down to the telephones are modeled to resemble his home in the oval office. The Waldorf takes their responsibility as host very seriously as well. At one point, when an unnamed head of state who suffered from claustrophobia stayed at the hotel, the staff went through such lengths to make him comfortable that they even placed mirrors in the elevator so that it would appear more spacious.
The Hay-Adams, Washington, DC
When George W. Bush denied Barack Obama's request to live in the Blair House in the weeks leading up to his inauguration, the Obamas moved in to the tony <a href="http://www.hayadams.com/" target="_hplink">Hay-Adams</a> presidential suite until January.
The Fairmont, San Francisco
The <a href="http://www.fairmont.com/sanfrancisco" target="_hplink">San Francisco Fairmont</a> is affectionately referred to as "The White House of the West" for a reason. Presidents Harry Truman, William Taft, Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Barack Obama have been guests up at this gilded Golden Gate getaway.
The Regency - Bar Harbor, Maine
The Obamas became the first First Family to vacation on Mt. Desert Island, Maine in 100 years. They stayed in the Bar Harbor Regency, in a $500-a-night ocean view penthouse suite that includes a private outdoor deck, kitchen and Queen Anne furniture. The good news is that for anybody else who wishes to visit Bar Harbor *presidential style*, the rooms in this Holiday Inn-run hotel go as low as $219 a night during the summer months.
Blue Heron Farm, Martha's Vineyard
The Obamas stayed at Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts during their August 2009 vacation. They have continued to use the 30-acre property while on their August vacations. (JEWEL SAMAD/AFP/Getty Images)
