Had a really difficult time booking a room as the contact person was very hard to communicate with. No one was there when we arrived, so we waited up to let someone know we were there and finally the manager came in drunk. Kind of a strange group of people staying there too.

I had an amazing experience staying at this place! Perfect location, very well maintained house - very clean and organized! felt fully relaxed and rejuvenated. House owner and manager were very hospitable and took very good care of their guests. I travelled with my elderly parents - so as an additional gesture, House Owner accommodated us by allowing to use... More

Lovely property walking distance from ferry and shops in town including movie theater. Of the 7 MV towns, this town has it all. Not alot of noise, low key, small beach, dining, bicycle rental shop. 1720 House is neat, has air conditioning in rooms with some private or shared bathrooms. Beautiful large tree to take a nap under. Innkeeper is... More

I made a reservation at this hotel as the room was listed in Edgartown. Abby responded and accepted my reservation but said the location was actually in Vineyard Haven. When I expressed that was disappointing as I made the reservation under the impression we were in a different location, I asked if she would cancel the reservation. She said she... More

A rare find in the hospitality world....owners and staff who really care about their guests. The weather was awful , cold and rainy and we were on island for business. We were greeted warmly , given hot teas and cheese and fruit and hot toast. The room was warm, cozy and comfortable We felt well taken care of. Interesting conversation.... More

Our family of four enjoyed our stay at the 1720 House. It is very conveniently located for the ferry, shops and restaurants, yet set back from the street just out of town so delightfully quiet. Charming, clean and reasonably priced. What more could you ask for?

Husband Bob and I just loved the 1720 House. Charming, cozy, warm and homey are all words we'd use to describe Abby's lovely B&B. She was such fun to meet and chat with; and a most accommodating hostess. We had the Yellow Room, with a great king-size bed and a nice view of the peaceful yard. Nice that the house... More

Shot in the dark reservation at the 1720 House for short getaway for our 19 wedding anniversary. It turned out to be the warmest and most intimate of B&B's we have stayed in both in the states and abroad. Nothing fancy for sure but just right for a relaxing sojourn away for a short trip. For sure would rebook when... More

My wife and I enjoyed a beautiful Fall getaway at the 1720 House. I loved that we could walk to shopping and restaurants. Two beautiful churches are on the street behind the Inn. The village is perfect example of a New England small town. The house is beautifully renovated while keeping the integrity of the historic style. If you love... More
