Recently stayed for a girl's weekend. Location was great - short walk to Oaks Bluff stores and restaurants, on bus route to other MV towns, fabulous ocean view/location. Very clean and friendly owner and staff - very comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Hope to be back again soon.

Capricorn B&B has a fantastic front porch, upper decks, and an expansive view of Vineyard Sound. It has a friendly and capable owner and good staff. It is located on Sea View and Pequot, in the heart of one of the most interesting architectural gems in the U.S.--Oak Bluff and its Victorian and Gothic Revival homes. You can walk to... More

Firstly, thank you for your very kind words and nearly accurate review; however I can't help but bring up a few things that are needing to be mentioned. We are a small seven bedroom guesthouse/bed-and-breakfast built in 1876; originally the summer home of a sea captain and his family. The bedrooms are small; it's an old Victorian, but they do...

My husband booked us without knowing anything about the B&B; I am so thrilled he did!!! After exploring the island(we caught the bus directly in front of the B&B), I would not have chosen any other place to stay! We loved it! Friendly, clean, beautiful view, perfect location across from the beach, great breakfast! Coffee and tea available at all... More

It is time for our annual stay at Capricorn House. As always, Deirdre was her usual warm and welcoming self. We had the suite which is comprised of two bedrooms and a sitting room all recently redecorated. Very comfortable for four adults. The porch, with its unobstructed view of the ocean, is a great place to sit and watch the... More

My husband and I spent a weekend at the Capricorn House in June 2014. We have never stayed at a bed and breakfast. We truly enjoyed our experience here. We were warmly welcomed and the owner was full of information about the town. The entire house was spotless! The beach was directly across the street. The owner supplied us with... More

We've stayed at the Capricorn house on two prior occasions and we enjoyed it. The main reason was that we had one of the two rooms with a balcony which overlook the beach. Because of the wonderful deck to the outside, the price seemed to be less important. The ability to sit outside with some privacy made me overlook the... More

It is always interesting to discover a review from a guest that showed no sign of discontent while present in your establishment; and yet have no problem venting about issues that clearly should have been discussed with me directly. Our website is very clear about the size and amenities we provide ... Room #5, the Lighthouse room, (where these guests... More

We stayed at the Capricorn house early in the 2013 summer season. While the very small room was clean and the host put out a few very generic breakfast items each day, our experience can most accurately be described as unwelcoming. The inn was full of the host's children and their friends. I believe only one other guest room was... More

I am sorry to hear that you felt unwelcome during your stay at the Capricorn House last June. It is true that there are often children and teenagers that stay at the house with their families, and my children have come to know them over the years. While my children do understand the restrictions they have as to their usage... More

My b/f and I just returned home from our first time on the Vineyard and it will not be the last! This B&B was more than we could have hoped for. Close enough to the hustle and bustle that you could walk downtown to the shops, restaurants, Gingerbread Cottages, nation's oldest Carousel, and of course the little Candy Shop at... More

We stayed Saturday to Monday in room 3 with the deck overlooking Nantucket Sound. Next time we hope to get room 4 next door with the king bed and deck. The room was small (4 is bigger), but the deck was fantastic. My sunrise pictures were amazing! It was nice to sit on the deck with a beverage watching the... More
