We just left the Sydney and had a wonderful time. It's the perfect location to experience Martha's Vineyard. The inn is gorgeous and the room was beautiful. Carol the manager made us feel so welcome and went above and beyond to make sure we had a fabulous stay. I would highly recommend the Sydney !!!!

I booked a room for 4 night in August. Understanding that it is a difficult week, we waited to book airline flights from Dallas, Texas to the Vineyard until we knew we had a room. 24 hours later (and after we made all other non-refundable travel arrangements) we get a cancellation of our room with no explanation. We email back... More

Dear Mr....., I am extremely suprised to read this review. I immediately responded to your email that your reservation had just been cancelled. I was shocked to see that it had even gone as far as "Pending" because I knew those dates had been sold out for months. I contacted our reservation system as to why it could have gotten... More

You won't find a better location in the center of Edgartown but be prepared for street noise at the peak of the summer season. It usually quiets down by 10:00p.m. but resumes in the morning with the arrival of delivery trucks and other traffic. The rooms have lovely amenities including plush towels, bathrobes etc. The inviting porch and front flower... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at The Fallon. As you said, our location can't be beat. But with that does come some noise during peak season. We are excited though as we will be undergoing a full renovation in the fall with new windows and all new furnishings. As a boutique inn we do not... More

The Fallon is located in the heart of Edgartown in a beautiful old house. It is really unique and cozy inside. It has an attractive flower garden in front with adirondack chairs you can sit on and have a drink. It also has a nice patio, which was especially valuable as we had a few rainy days. Our room #8...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at The Fallon. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. As you mentioned, we are housed in a 150 year old whaling captains house so the rooms on the 3rd floor are smaller as they are the top floor and the roof of the... More

We stayed in Room #1 - large "king" room. We were grateful for the in room seating area as there is no common space in the inn save some outdoor seating that others have mentioned and the bar associated with the restaurant that occupies the first floor. We turned off the a/c upon our arrival and had a nice, beginning... More

We really enjoyed our time at the Fallon and in Martha's Vineyard. This Inn is close to everything! There is even a fabulous restaurant on the main floor. We were able to walk everywhere. Love the Adirondack chairs out front. Spent a lot time drinking wine and people watching. The room was great. The gal running the Inn was fabulous!... More

I booked room 7 as a last minute one night booking in July. I was skeptical because it was the only room in Edgartown available last minute...but when I got there I realized it must have been a fluke cancellation. Room was fresh clean well appointed Inn keeper was lovely. Location could not be better if not in the water.... More

My husband and I stayed here last September as part of an anniversary trip. We stayed in the front king room (I think #1), with the bay window and glimpses of the harbor. The location is very good, right in the middle of Edgartown. The restaurant on the bottom floor of the inn was excellent. It was really convenient to... More

Hi Cindy, Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay last fall 2013. I do agree that those bottom steps looked bad. We had put in a very light color carpet and even though it was professionally cleaned monthly, it still showed wear quickly. Good news is that they look great now and we are... More
