We visited Menemsha Inn for the second time this year after falling in love with the place last year. We had stayed in a small cottage last year with a stunning view of the ocean and grounds - and a couple of lamas in the background and rabbits at our footstep. Did I mention the wild turkeys? We usually stay... More

We have been coming to MV and to Menemsha every summer for many years, and for the last number to the Menemsha Inn because of its peaceful location, access to Lucy Vincent beach, and the cottages. Sadly, this is the last year we will be returning to the Inn. When we checked in, I asked about the beach pass to... More

The location is fantastic and the passes to Lucy Vincent Beach were key. The grounds were lovely, and the view was awesome! We have been visitors to MV for nearly 30 years, and we've always enjoyed our time on the island. I consider it a slice of heaven. I must say that the innkeeper was unnecessarily abrupt and she felt... More

The Menemsha Inn is worth the trip- if You can find it! (Our cabbie had no trouble). For a second time, in the last five years, family and I have stayed here while visiting friends who live in Chilmark. The property here is beautiful, very well maintained, vast and superbly welcoming. In addition, the staff is always friendly, accomodating and... More

I've been coming to m.v. for years and typically stayed in Edgartown (e.g. Hob Knob, Kelley House, Harbor View and others). This time we decided to stay Up Island and so glad we did. It's a totally different vibe than staying in the midst of the hustle bustle, but a welcome change of pace if you don't mind taking a... More

Menemsha is at the quiet west end of MV. At this inn you have access to the best beach (Lucy Vincent), picturesque harbor, best restaurant (Beach Plum), best cafe/deli (Beetlebung). It'd be great for a couples getaway or a family reunion. Staff, Virginia, Joel and Julie are friendly and accommodating in every way. Housekeeping is excellent, beautiful grounds. An easy... More

We were looking for a quiet country retreat and found one in the little fishing village of Menemsha. We stayed in the Carriage House. The room was simple but comfortable. It was the beautifully landscaped grounds, the fabulous view, and the friendly staff that made this experience exceptional. Virginia and Joel were most helpful and their knowledge of Martha's Vineyard... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Menemsha Inn on a trip through New England. We stayed in the Fo'Castle Cottage and had a wonderful visit. The cottage which had a sea view, was beautifully maintained and very comfortable. Housekeeping was outstanding throughout our stay. Virginia and Joel in the main office know all there is to know about... More

We stayed on the Vineyard for five nights. The first leg of our trip we stayed in a very upscale boutique hotel in Edgartown. We wanted to experience the flavor of Menemsha and surrounding beaches. We could not find many choices, so Menemsha Inn seemed like a good compromise. The grounds are well kept and beautifully mature. Rooms are clean,... More

Beautiful view from ocean view room, good bed, balcony, quiet, decent breakfast (pastry, cereals, hard-boiled eggs, fruit salad, yogurt, good coffee). Easy walk to dinner next door at Beach Plum (bring a flashlight). I'd give it a 5 except when I called the day before to see if I could check in early because of a workshop I was attending... More
