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

This was my very first time ever staying in a B&B and I must admit I was apprehensive at first, being a private "hotel" kind of person. This experience has now changed me forever. I realized the charm and "homey" feeling that a well-run B&B can offer and the 1720 House has to rank as high as they go. The... More

The 1720 House... Found it on TripAdvisor as we were looking for a quiet, pretty, place to stay while we attended a family reunion over Columbus Weekend. Upon arriving, it was late due to a flight-delay, we found a welcome note and our room key waiting for us in the foyer. We got to the room - Garden Room (definitely... More

We've stayed in lots of B&B's based on Tripadvisor ratings and customer reviews. We've never been disappointed, until now. The 1720 House definitely does not measure up. The owner and staff were inattentive and the facility isn't all that well kept. The place smells like cigarette smoke (further digging reveals other customer complaints about the smoke odor). The breakfast was... More

It's like staying with friends! Abby, the owner and Lucinda, the house manager are like family (the good one's). They are there to pamper and satisfy your every need to make your visit a most enjoyable experience. The entire house, common areas such as the living room, sitting room, screened porch, and dining room as well as the quest rooms... More

The 1720 House is an excellent home away from home. Abby, the owner, and Lucinda, the house manager are exceptionally friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The 1720 house is in an excellent location and has beautiful rooms. They provide a delightful breakfast that includes coffee, tea, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, and the most delightful bread you will ever taste. Our 11... More

Pick this place randomly. First time B&B. Direct contact with the owner who made representations that were fulfilled. Clean, accommodating and a nice departure from a hotel room. Walking distance to much of what you need and accessible for everything else. Breakfast (healthy and adequate) style is a unique experience and promotes friendly experiences with other guest. Abby (owner) and... More

The house is beautiful, set back a little from the road, and as soon as you walk into the living room, you can tell you've arrived somewhere that has history, is interesting, and is full of charm. The house is in a great location, just a few minutes' walk from Vineyard Haven's ferry terminal, and more importantly, the bus station.... More
