“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2011 via mobile

I recently stayed here and I couldn't be happier with this bed and breakfast. The inn keeper made you feel right at home. The location is very close to downtown and only a 5/10 minute walk. Overall this bed and breakfast was so wonderful and relaxing. Great for the whole family or a romantic weekend. It is such a beautiful place here, that if i ever come back here, the doctors house will be my first choice.

We had the most amazing time at this heavenly spot 2 minutes up the hill from downtown Vineyard Haven. The closeness to downtown made life very convenient but you will feel like you are miles away from the hubbub once you are at this charming and gracious mansion on the hill. Jilana and her staff have figured out the perfect balance between warmth and privacy....not an easy task for any B and B. We lazed in the hammock out back by the beautiful gardens. We were treated to gorgeous breakfasts each morning: eggs, bacon, homemade scones, croissant french toast, fresh juices and, my favorite part, a huge plate of fresh fruit. We were left alone to come and go but treated to nicely timed conversations with the host and the housekeeping staff. The door is always open and we felt like we were truly staying with family. A gem of a find!

The building, rooms, and grounds are quite lovely. HOWEVER, I have stayed at many Bed and Breakfasts all over the world, and have never encountered rude, off-putting owners like this. 99% of B&B owners I have encountered over the years have been warm, engaging and helpful. This was the opposite. No advice, no room cleaning, no fresh towels, no beverage, coffee, tea service anywhere in the building. Totally weird experience.
Unfortunately, we cannot recommend this one.

This place is a beauty. Well-appointed, beautiful setting, fabulous breakfast. The only critique is that the innkeeper was a bit off-putting on the phone and upon arrival. We felt like we were intruding and not welcomed there, making for an uncomfortable experience. This seemed to change as we prepared to depart, which left us puzzled. There had been no issues during the reservation process, nor during our stay (we're well-traveled people with extensive B & B and 5-star accommdation experiences). Regardless, the place was lovely and would recommend it if you don't need 'warm fuzzies'.

We loved this B&B. It is decorated with excellent taste, and is very comfortable. It is in a quiet part of Vineyard Haven, about a fifteen-minute walk or ten-minute bike ride from the ferry. We spent a good part of our vacation just hanging out here on the hammocks, reading, or playing ping-pong out in the garden. Breakfast was delicious, and served with style but not stilted. Jilana was available but did not hover. There are several places here to hang out--a couple of TV rooms, a large living room with lots of books, and a porch on the side of the house, screened from the road, where we had breakfast. The bed was really comfortable, too!

This B&B is located on in a quiet residential neighborhood. Our room was clean, small, quiet and comfortable. The AC was self regulated and the room included a ceiling fan.
There are multiple common rooms which we didn't take advantage of, but one included a refrigerator so we could refreeze our cooler packs.

The amenities included a nutritious and delicious full breakfast on a too sunny patio.
Bicycles are available. Unfortunately the one we choose, needed the handle bars tightened and a gentler seat.

On our arrival we were sweetly greeted by Kristen, the house assistant. She showed us the layout of the house and arranged a place for us to leave a suitcase as we arrived 2.5 hours prior to check-in. The inn's owner was less gracious grumbling about the time and where we had placed our beach gear on the driveway. Unfortunately, this introduction placed a damper on our stay and makes it difficult to recommend this B&B to others.

We stayed for seven nights in this B & B in Martha's Vineyard and had a great stay. It's located within walking distance of Vineyard Haven (and the ferries) but is on a surprisingly quiet street. The room (we stayed in Room #7 which has a bedroom and a separate sitting room) was spacious and comfortable. It has a beautiful yard where we saw wild turkeys and deer repeatedly. Breakfasts were great every morning. (My wife, who is incredibly fussy about it thought the coffee was great---a big plus because she's miserable if she can't get decent coffee.) Everyone was most helpful and friendly. This is NOT a hotel but a B & B however so if you're looking for the kind of 24 hour service you get in a hotel you should probably stay in one. Oh and great news for those who travel with pets it is incredibly pet friendly. I would highly recommend this inn to anyone who is going to spend some time on Martha's Vineyard.
