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

Reading a few so-so reviews on here, we decided to book anyway vs. one of the big hotels because 1) I remember briefly visiting Capricorn House 17 years ago and thinking it was pretty fab, and 2) because if you're going for the best Vineyard experience while visiting from far away, you might as well have a view of the...

Stayed at the Capricorn House with some family members. Accommodations were clean, bed/breakfast style. Beautiful Victorian home across from the beach with brilliant views of the ocean. The managers provided beach towels and chairs for us. The ocean side rooms have spacious decks, with loungers, table and chairs - a very inviting place to relax and enjoy the views. Very... More

We stayed in the room with the king size bed and ocean view. Loved the view. The room was bigger than I expected after reading other reviews. I found we had plenty of room. It is expensive but other b & b's were about the same this time of year. The continental breakfast was great and the owners were friendly.... More

Capricorn is a little gem in lovely Oak Bluffs. Perfectly located for walking, across from the beach, a couple blocks from Ocean Park and the ferry, and a few blocks into town. Shuttle buses take you to neighboring towns of Vineyard Haven and Edgartown. Okay so the rooms and bathrooms are small (get one with a balcony!) but this ain't... More
