We booked the 1720 house by chance due to being very late in the season making the booking, so our own fault. The location is perfect and Cynthia the manager is super. Very welcoming and full of knowledge about the island. We were a party of 10 inc 6 children and Cynthia took a good 20 minutes to talk us... More

Five months after the confirmation of the reservation 1720 House canceled reservation without giving a reason. In August we had to stay on Vineyard island for a wedding we were in trouble as all hotels were fully booked. 1720 House remained in defects and had no solution offered.

The location if this B&B can't be beat. It's within walking distance of the Vineyard Haven ferry and downtown shopping area. The house itself is charming. The rooms are not big, but I imagine that you're not coming to Martha's Vineyard to stay in your room. The Garden Room, the Yellow Room and the Lincoln Room all have their own... More

This is a small guest house just off Main St Vineyard Haven within easy walking distance of the ferry Terminal. We were given a warm welcome by Cynthia the Manager who was very helpful with Island info and restaurant booking. We stayed in the Lincoln Room which is small but very comfortable with some quaint touches. The breakfast is basic... More

The owners friends were more of a priority then a paying sales rep there on business. Breakfast was instant oatmeal, burnt coffee, yogurt and packaged bread. As a non-tourist and someone who has to return to the island multiple times a year, I will never return or recommend. This was a sad experience.

I had a remarkable time in Vineyard Haven during my stay at the 1720 House. The house is located literally within walking distance of the ferry and Main Street. Vineyard Haven has events and opportunities suited for all age ranges. No car is needed to navigate through the town and the house is also only a troll away from the... More

This is a great little hideaway in a fantastic, quiet location on Martha's Vineyard. Abby the Innkeeper is FANTASTIC. She went out of her way to rearrange cars so we could get a UHaul trailer in the driveway- which is very hard to accommodate on the island. She is super bright and full of stories. LuVed her. Abby's helper, Emma,... More

The 1720 House is one of my favorite places . I stayed for a number of days in December and loved every minute. The island is cold but interesting...good food, great films,and art shows. We walked on the beach with windbreakers and came back to the property to find hot chocolate and cookies. Everyone was helpful, cordial and friendly. Its... More

From the moment we stepped thru the door of The 1720 House we felt happy and knew we would be well taken care of. We loved the decor, simple and tasteful with some fine antique furniture. lovely scented pine candles provided a soothing aroma. The rooms were comfortable and the beds cozy with down comforters. The property is a few... More
