“Lovely home with a quiet location.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2010

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.

A wonderful Vineyard Haven Stay, beautiful flowers, graceful comfortable furniture, delicious plentiful breakfast served on a lovely porch looking over a beautiful yard and garden. The breakfast was awesome, the service perfect. Juliana was honest, direct and shared a wealth of knowledge of the vineyard. She has a New York edge which was refreshing and fun. The Doctor's House location was the a critical element of our Martha's vineyard vacation. We walked downtown, to have fun , enjoy the sun and try diverse dinner and desert venues. The Doctor's Bed and Breakfast allowed for a perfect center point for our daily bike rides to the Cliffs at Gay Head, Chappy, and Oak Bluffs. We enjoy bed and breakfast and this is one we will look forward to returning to. A truly wonderful vineyard haven Bed and Breakfast.

This is our second stay at The Doctor's House, Martha's Vineyard. It is a large, rambling, B&B set amongst beautiful lawns and gardens. The best aspect for us is that our six year old Rhodesian Ridgeback is welcome and we feel perfectly relaxed. The heat was intense across the NE over the July long weekend, but we stayed cool under a large tree, with a hammock swinging from one of its branches and sun chairs positioned for the shade. The atmosphere is "your home away from home" where you are offered a relaxed sanctuary from some of the busier hubs on the island. I highly recommend The Doctors House for your next Martha's Vineyard sojourn.

The Doctor's House has a warm and homey feel, and the innkeeper was very hospitable. The grounds are magnificent, punctuated by a wonderfully characteristic tree in which wild turkeys roost every evening. We stayed in the suite, a charming well-appointed room with views of both the grounds and the front of the house. Located approximately a 15 minute walk to Vineyard Haven, leave plenty of time to walk or bring your bikes/car.

My husband and I have been to the Doctors House each year in the spring and/or in the fall. These past two times we have brought friends with us. Jilana and Alan (our wonderful hosts) make us feel right at home. The house is spacious and the grounds are beautiful. It's also in a great location so we can walk into town, ride bikes or drive around the island. And the food is FABULOUS!!! We plan on coming here many more times and recommend it to all our friends, family and clients.

We spent five peaceful days and nights at the Doctor's House over the winter vacation. The house is charming and lovingly attended to, down to every detail in the guest rooms and common spaces. Our girls loved the wild turkeys parading around the enormous grounds and we all enjoyed evenings warming our feet by the living room fireplace: reading, doing puzzles and drawing. The owner made us feel totally at home. She was thoroughly engaging with the girls, shared stories about the house and Vineyard and great tips of what to see on and off the beaten path. The breakfast is sublime, the coffee strong, the piano waiting for a player. There is happiness in this place and we plan to return in the spring.
