3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The vineyard was packed (Aug) and this was the only spot that we could find accommodations. The exterior of the cottages look like they could use a few coats of paint. The sofas all seemed to be nice in the Cottages that we had other than that it seemed like the décor could use a spiffying up. The accommodations were... More

Pros: location, friendly staff, they actually have a fitness center and usable tennis court, free breakfast Cons: outdated amenities (1990s-era tvs with vcrs, for example), NOT enough hot water for all guests to take hot showers (!!), so feels more like a camp than an overpriced hotel

I booked 3 nights but was forced to cancel just two days after making the reservation. I received the cancellation confirmation number sent by Orbitz and thought all was well. A year later, whilst doing my taxes, I noticed Menemsha Inn never refunded my money--$592.38. When I called and asked for the refund, they said too late; you should have... More

Enjoyed a girlfriends get away and enjoyed 2nts with 2 rooms in the main lodge. Rooms 5&6 offered nice views of the ocean and the sunsets. We walked down the beach which seemed farther away than what they had said plus we were a little unsure of the walking path...but we made it! Morning breakfast was basic, however the views... More

This couldn't have been better for a quick fall getaway. We stayed in one of the cottages after Columbus Day which meant 'up island' restaurants were closed while we were there on a Tuesday, Wednesday and part of Thursday. Thanks to Larsen's Fish Market, it didn't matter. We had our lobster rolls and stuffed scallops in front of a blazing... More

The inn is comprised of outbuildings with suites and full cottages settled discreetly on a hill overlooking the sea. One can walk to the tiny town of Menemsha, with its fishing boats and lobster shacks, as well as the beach. My suite room with a view of the sea and the Coast Guard's lighthouse (active) had cable and wifi, and... More

This is the second time my girlfriend and I have been to Menemsha. You should know that the Menemsha Inn runs a half-off special on rooms after Labor Day, and every store in Edgartown has sales between Labor Day and Columbus Day (the unofficial end of season). You'll also want to get here before Larsen's shutters for the season--it's where... More

If you are anything like me, the crowds (even off-season) in Edgartown, Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs are daunting and uninviting. Staying on the other side of the island was the best decision we made! And because we were traveling off-season the Inn was half the high-season price. I would not have given them 4 stars if I had paid... More

We stayed here for a week and took it as our base camp to travel all over the island. This inn has a very good restaurant (not the breakfast one), with incredible views. What we liked the most is that it is less touristy than the rest of the Island so after a day's exploration it was worth the while... More

The Inn has beautiful grounds and lots of charm and great views. It feels very personal to the tastes of the owners and absolutely not chain-ey. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The free continental breakfast at the Inn was enh (although the fresh fruits was fantastic as it was everywhere on the island). We were happy to pay... More
