“Off Season Relaxation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

My Husband and I were visiting the island on our 3rd Wedding Anniversary,Great place to relax, do some biking and very accomodating on our stay. Breakfast is wonderful, good variety and good presentation.along with their afternoon cookies.and tea.They even surprised us with a bottle of wine and glasses to share Our room was small but quaint but fit us well..Definately a return visit to Pequot , Loved the porch with all the rocking chairs, a great place to relax with a glass of wine and to meet new friends.

Happy New Year!

Thank you so much for taking the time during the busy holiday season to comment on your stay at The Pequot in October.

We are so happy that you spent Anniversary #3 with us and hope you will do the same for Anniversary #4!

The off season IS a lovely time to spend quiet moments together enjoying the beauty of Martha's Vineyard. So happy you did!

The Pequot opens for the 2013 season in May and we look forward to hosting all our friends again as well as making new friends!

Many, many thanks to all for your comments and all our best to you in the New Year.

I have been here twice this year once in July then in October and I love every time I come here. First the location is good it is a block and half from the beach, it is walking distance from the ferry, it is a short walk to Circuit Ave., the tabernacle and the Gingerbread houses. It is affordable for the price you can't beat it. The rooms are clean. For breakfast they serve bagels, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, hard boiled eggs, coffee, juice, cereal with toppings for the oatmeal which is decent. In the afternoon during the summer they have cookies and iced tea in the lobby and in the fall they add the hot cider. I loved the front porch it was very relaxing you just relax with a book and a glass of wine. They even grow mint and spearmint to put in your drink/tea. This is cozy place the staff is very friendly and know the island very well. I will definitely be back.

We booked this hotel for 3 nights, but it was advertised under B&B's so surprised a little when it turned out to be more a hotel than that what we were expecting. We were given a room up 3 flights of narrow steep steps and on the way up it looked in need of a refurbish, our hearts were sinking rapidly, the room was no better, but no television no phone no coffeemaker? Although we discovered there was 24 hour hot drinks a nd biscuits in reception. But that was 3 flights and a walk away! We looked for alternate accommodation on the Island, but for a friday and Saturday everything seemed to be full up. asked at reception for a change and they had just had a cancellation, moved to a lovely room on the ground floor (with television) and close to reception for amenities. Last 2 days were fine, and breakfast was adequate. But they really need to sort the annex out, very much in need of decoration and updating. The staff were excellent through out and a pleasant area, not too far from everything. If it was not for the first room, we would recommend this hotel. Hopefully it will be done this winter?

Dear bbflyer,

We're glad you asked! YES, we have improvements planned for the Pequot over the winter, as we do every winter.

In the Annex, that portion of the hotel directly across the front patio, improvements will include freshly painted walls and furniture as well as soundproofing. We have also replaced many windows. Last year, we updated the bathrooms and replaced the carpeting. At this time, we have no plans to add TVs to the Annex simply because so many guests THANK us for providing a choice to have no TV. Many guests choose the Annex specifically because they enjoy the simple "Vineyard Cottage " atmosphere (and because these rooms are our most economical).

Your note brings to mind the importance of CALLING, if possible, when making reservations. That way we can describe the various room options we have available. Believe me, when a guest is disappointed, even if it's just a "first impression",the entirety of Team Pequot is disappointed. We love nothing more than having all our guests be HAPPY.

We are so glad you ended up enjoying your stay, and if your travels ever bring you back to MV, we would love to see you again!

Warm regards,
Lisa

I was here with my daughter for two nights and it was a perfect place to stay. The hallways are painted with beautiful scenes from the Island. The rooms were painted as well and were clean. The breakfast is one of the best I've had for a bed and breakfast. Will definitely go back here again some day! Highly recommended. Jana Harrison

Dear Jana,

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent stay at The Pequot. It sounds like The Annex suited your needs well, and I'm so pleased that you enjoyed it's traditional Vineyard Cottage charm. Many of our guests return annually and request The Annex specifically for just that reason!

I will pass on your compliments about breakfast to Nadir and Nicky. Both take great pride in preparing our expanded continental breakfast in the morning for the satisfaction of our guests. I'm so glad that you enjoyed our freshly baked muffins, steel cut oatmeal with all the toppings, hardboiled eggs, yogurt , assorted cereals, fruit and bagels and English muffins. (And heads up! Watch for some new additions next season.)
Hopefully we will see you back then!

With warmest regards,
Lisa

My husband and I spent six days at the Pequot Hotel and were thrilled with the accommodations. The hotel was spotlessly clean. The staff was so friendly and helpful that we felt like they were family when we left. Our check-in and check-out went without a hitch. Our room was so comfortable and charming. The complimentary breakfast was a step above usual offerings with yummy homemade muffins every morning. When we returned to the hotel in the afternoon, there was complimentary coffee, tea, hot cocoa and hot apple cider as well as homemade chocolate chip cookies and homemade ginger bread available. There is no restaurant on site but a wide choice of restaurants are within a block. We highly recommend a stay at the Pequot Hotel. You won't want to go home!

My husband and I stayed at the Pequot for four wonderful nights in early October. Lisa and her hard working staff made our stay an extremely enjoyable one. The room was very clean and well maintained. Having a small, room refrigerator was also a help. Each day, on our return from exploring the island, we were greeted with a beverage, warm chocolate chip cookies and a "welcome back!".
For me personally, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee wafting under my door in the morning was heavenly. I loved getting dressed, grabbing a cup and sitting in a rocking chair on the porch to watch the sunrise over Oak Bluffs. Lisa and her staff were very helpful in their suggestions for restaurants, directions and things to do.
We loved our stay, and look forward to getting back to that porch very soon.

Dear Crownvicnick,

Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience at The Pequot. I'm so pleased that you were able to enjoy relaxing moments rocking and enjoying life on the porch! I think our porch is one of the things that makes The Pequot unique...it enables guests to make new friends, renew old friendships, and enjoy yummy treats such as our freshly baked cookies and our seasonal gingerbread and cidar!

I'm pleased you were happy with the dining options we suggested, Oak Bluffs is fortunate to have a wide variety of cuisines in it's many great restaurants. Glad you took advantage of them. And heads up...many new ones slated to open next season! Hopefully we will see you then.

With warm regards,
Lisa
