“FANTASTIC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

My wife and I spent a couple of days on the Vineyard, vacationing and having a chance to see our son play baseball for the MV Sharks. We spent a night at the Victorian Inn. Nicest people, fabulous location, and a wonderful room. To boot, the breakfast was outstanding.

Thank you Stephen for your hospitality.

This place just feels like a hug. I noticed this stately property attracting the attention of mere passers-by, and they hadn't even ventured in. When you do, however, you experience an immediate sense of how attentive Stephen & Karyn are to detail. Each room I saw was charming, welcoming and beautifully decorated. We chose Room 14 which was perfect for us. Both Steve & Karyn were attentive, friendly, helpful and engaging. I also appreciated observing how nicely they interacted with their excellent staff. I am not a morning person but happily set my alarm to be in place, in their lovely garden, for what was consistently a delicious breakfast experience. Yes, "experience". It was just a glorious way to begin each day! Stephen, the comedian of the family (you'll see), is full of interesting Martha's Vineyard background information that we found helpful in getting a sense of this place, its history and how things currently work there. We also learned quickly the value of relying upon their recommendations. They know the island so do listen to them! They didn't send us anywhere we didn't thoroughly enjoy. They were also great at anticipating needs; not waiting for us to ask. The cleaning person noticed a bottle of wine we'd purchased. When we returned to our room, we found a note that said our wine was being chilled and to ring the bell when we wanted it delivered back to our room. I cannot recommend this place more highly.

Room Tip: We were in Room 14 and loved it! We did get an opportunity to catch a glimpse of most of the rooms...

We always stay at the Vic.. It's such a cousy place, in which you will get the yummiest brekkies prepared with love, just as your mum would do for you!
Rooms are all very nicely decorated, spotless and quiet.
Keepers will be pleased to give you any tips about the island, they know the place as good as the palm of their hand! I highly recommend you to stay in this beautiful hotel!

Room Tip: #7 has a lovely terrace!!

I can honestly say we have lost track of how many times we have stayed with Karyn and Stephen but we will keep returning. This is a lovely inn located right in the heart of Edgartown close to shops and a wide variety of dining ranging from simple pizza to fine dining all within a short walk. The inn keepers are a joy to get to know and have never lost site of how important it is that their guests truly enjoy the stay. Karyn's breakfast's are top notch and they will always go to any lengths to accommodate the tastes of their guests. (be sure to load up on Blueberry muffins and raspberry butter) Meticulously clean and perfectly decorated with period furniture and accessories, we couldn't ask for more.

Room Tip: We particularly enjoy room 11, it is on the top floor looking out over the bay. if you are a light...

Great location in the heart of Edgartown and great service. The breakfast is top notch and the rooms are all so unique. Highly recommend spending the extra money for room 15. It has a very spacious deck with beautiful views of the harbor and Edgartown.

Would recommend this beautiful Inn to anyone. In the heart of Edgartown, the Victorian Inn exudes old world charm furnished with antiques and immaculately clean. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable, and there's a glass of Sherry waiting for you on arrival-very civilised!The host, Steve, and Simna (I hope that's right!) made us feel very welcome and were incredibly accommodating to every request. Breakfast was the best we had during our trip-fresh fruit, granola, eggs fried in cream (!) and french toast were amongst the offerings, as well as home-baked breads and a range of juices. There's even a bike rental place next door-I would recommend making use of the many cycle paths round the island-its te best way to see this beautiful place.

Room Tip: Stay there!Use the little garden out the back for a quiet drink

Stayed recently and was very impressed Had a great welcome from the informative owner and the really helpful member of staff. The rooms are really clean and comfortable and little touches like the flowers and the sherry in the room are great. We went out and about around the island and were provided with wine coolers, glasses, towels etc that helped. Nothing was too much trouble and I would definitely recommend
