My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend getaway at The Hob Knob. We chose the hotel based on a recommendation of a good friend whose family has a home on the Vineyard and we were not disappointed.
I spoke with the General Manager, Diane, several times before our stay as there was a chance we would be arriving on the later side. She could not have been more accomodating and was very helpful in her restaurant recommendations and things to do on island before we got there which helped us plan our weekend ahead of time so we wouldn't feel rushed or as though we might be missing out on something.
We felt at home from the moment we opened the door to check in on Friday. The hotel is located on the main street, about a 5 minute walk from the heart of downtown Edgartown. The hotel really does feel like a house, with quaint rooms for sitting and reading the paper by the fire (New York Times and USA Today delivered daily) or for enjoying the 4-6 PM Tea and homemade cookies and in our case, Banana Bread. There is also a lovely outdoor patio for sunset cocktails and a great sunroom with a "honor bar".
I was a bit worried when our room (#6) was on the ground floor, directly off the sun room, but the hotel is remarkable sound-proof and even had a white noise machine in the room. There is a nice fitness center and a spa onsite.
The daily Farm-to-Table breakfast is made to order and everything was out of this world. It's a nice way to start the day and we naturally found ourselves in chairs by the fire, reading the paper and talking with other guests after each meal. Most of the other guests we met were back for a 2nd, 3rd and even 17th visit - which says a lot about the hotel!
Each room had unique decor; nothing about the hotel feel generic or contrived. The king-sized bed was heavenly, as was the daily turndown service and the hand-written welcome note and Aveda bath products. Make sure to indulge in the luxurious bathrobes which are hanging in the closest!
Diane and the staff were so pleasant and made our dinner reservation both nights which allowed us to relax and enjoy our days without having to scramble to ensure we got a good meal. Especially if you visit from Mid-June - August (peak season) make sure you let Diane and the staff make restaurant recommendations as things can get crowded.
The weather didn't allow us to bike around but the hotel has bike rentals and if the weather permits, I highly recommend taking advantage as this is the best way to see the island.
We are already planning our next stay and can't wait to come back. The facilities are clean, the staff are delightful and the ambiance and location are unparalelled.
