“Can't wait to go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

This was our first trip to Martha's Vineyard and I booked here because of the glowing reviews here on Tripadvisor...and we were not disappointed! We stayed in suite number five (East Chop) and it is exactly as the website depicted it. I loved having the kitchen as it meant we didn't have to eat out for every single meal and we could keep beer and wine cold, which was perfect when we wanted to sit out on the private deck. Pat, the owner, let us check in early (10 am) with no hassle or additional charge. I loved how the inn is off the main street but literally steps from downtown. Don't hesitate to book here!

The Lightkeepers Inn was a wonderful place to stay. It is the cleanest place I've ever stayed; the staff is so friendly--going above and beyond in their efforts to make our stay great! Terrific location--walking distance to downtown. It had parking available which, after looking around Edgartown, is a huge plus. We stayed in the Lightkeeper's Cottage -- again, so nice and clean. It was quiet, had a private deck and recliner lawn chairs in the back. I can't say enough good about the people who run this Inn and the place itself. I would highly recommend a stay here.

We have been going to The Lightkeepers Inn since it opened, which was after the Daggett House closed. The Innkeeper and staff are very accommodating and genuinely interested in making you as welcome and comfortable as possible. The location would be hard to improve upon! For us, the island is a magical place and the inn greatly contributes to this feeling. We plan on an annual visit to the Lightkeepers Inn for the rest of our lives! Our children and their spouses now visit the Inn as well, staying in the Red Door house next to the inn if their number exceeds the capacity of the suites. We wholeheartedly recommend The Lightkeepers Inn!

Spent 3 wonderful nights at Lightkeepers Inn -- great walking location, close to water, town, and residential areas. The suites are compact, but quite comfortable and well supplemented by attractive outdoor living spaces. Housekeeping staff is exemplary -- after recent stays in self-catering vacation rentals, we had forgotten how nice it is to have rooms tidied and restocked with coffee, cream, toiletries and fresh linens.

My husband and I visited the Inn the weekend after labor day with several other couples. The accomodations were perfect for us, great location, close to town and everything in Edgartown . It really was the perfect getaway and our upstairs
deck was the "happy hour focal point" on our visit. Can't say enough good words !! We loved being in Edgartown and staying at The Lightkeeper's Inn .

Room Tip: Choose the upstairs room with the deck , patio table and umbrella

We stayed in mid September for a few nights to celebrate our anniversary and found the Lightkeepers Inn to be charming, spotless and very quiet all while also being very convenient- , within 2 blocks of Main street restaurants, shops and an easy walk to the MV Bus station for access to the whole island. This is an excellent value in a perfect location in Edgartown
Unit has a full kitchen with all amenities in place- some units enjoy a private deck .
Innkeepers are friendly and attentive.
We would highly recommend The Lightkeepers Inn for your stay in Marthas Vineyard

We stayed here for our anniversary the 1st weekend in November. We stayed in the Light Keepers Cottage. It is separate from the main house. There was plenty of room. It was perfect. We had our own private deck and a decent size fenced in backyard with a grill. The cottage was clean and had everything you would need, plus some amenities you would not think of such has beach chairs, beach towels, an umbrella etc. Check in is off site so you need to let them know when you will be arriving and they will come and meet you. It is a very short walk to Main Street, shopping and restaurants. When planning an off season trip keep in mind a lot of shops, eateries and sites are closed. There is still plenty open and there are no crowds, so it is a trade off. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back in the future!
