“My Visit to the Mansion House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

This February 2012, my twin sister and I had to visit Martha's Vineyard to take care of some business. I recently purchased a home in Oak Bluffs. My sister traveled from Texas to assist me. The Mansion House was just great. The room was airy, clean and delightful. The front desk clerks were helpful. I recommend this hotel without reservation.

Room Tip: Try the 3rd floor.

My childhood best friend and I spent the weekend here together as a last hurrah before her first born arrives in a few weeks (!). The staff was very very helpful and friendly. The included breakfast was delicious and very filling...you can order eggs anyway you like 'em, bacon/sausage, pancakes or stick with fruit, cereal, granola, yogurt with coffee and juices a plenty......or, if you travel with a (very) pregnant woman, you can watch as she orders all of the above.

The location is perfect: a short (5 minute) walk from the ferry and close to downtown and all of the shops and restaurants or grocery store if that's your preference.

The room! Big comfy king size bed-the kind where you don't feel the other person moving at all if you share the bed. There was a remote controlled fireplace and BIG tv.

Everything was perfect. Thanks Mansion House for making the special weekend easy, comfortable, and fun.

Room Tip: any of the rooms were great. there is a rooftop deck with a fabulous 360 view.

Lets start with the vineyard itself just in case some will be your first time. Its really 3 towns that you would want to do things in so having transportation is a good idea, even more so if you want to go out to the beach and point. Its the land of b and b's. The mansion is probably the most hotel like b and b on the island. there are hotel/resorts there(limited) but if you want a b and b, but have not have the creepiness of a small one this is good pick. The breakfast is good and standard like a fancy hotel, instead of a small b and b where you standing up in someones kitchen with strangers eating an english muffin. The front desk is pretty inept at times, parking is limited in a small lot in the alley behind the place. but not a problem when i was there. i had a jeep and left the door and windows of each night no problems. the rooms are a mix between a b and b and a classic upper scale hotel. some with balconys with furniture just a couple chairs but nice to have a glass of wine on. Martha's is just a place to chill and get away. this is a good, easy place to stay and not regret. close pharmacy, liquor store, grocery store, bakery, coffee shop, car rental etc.. all walkable but still small town neighbor hood feel. a charmer. stay there.

Room Tip: get a small balcony so you can have air in the room

My husband and I recently spent our 28th Anniversary at our local hotel for what is called a staycation. WE have a wonderful suite on the 4th floor, delicious dinner at Zephrus Zeafood & Grill and really enjoyed ourselfs. We will recomend the Manion House to all our friends and hope to go again.

I called to set up a reservation time for 4 people and was trying to figure out some things about the House that weren't on the website. I couldn't believe how uninterested this lady was to help me. There are four of us and I want to know the best room to suit our needs, she responded with ONLY one word answers and got so snotty with me I hung up on her. This is not the type of service I expected from a place like this. I certainly do not want to stay here and would pay more to get the service I thought the Mansion House would offer. DO NOT STAY HERE

InnkeeperMV, Owner at Mansion House, responded to this review, January 17, 2012
Please...Please...Please call us back! Our resident Sherlock Holmes can’t figure out who answered the phone (unless it was the off site /after hours answering service) and all of us want another chance. Usually we talk too much on the phone, since we love to brag about this place we proudly call home. Winter is a great time for a Vineyard getaway. Island life slows down, there are still things to do, folks are friendly and some of Mansion House rooms have fireplaces and views of Vineyard Sound. Please call us again. As a family owned Inn, our goal is to help you in any way we can.

A terrific hotel: a welcoming and accommodating and friendly staff; comfortable rooms with views of the shops along Main Street in Vineyard Haven or of the harbor. Our stay included use of the well-appointed health club, a real deal with a large swimming pool, jacuzzi, weight rooms, yoga room. Spa treatments available also. We had a fabulous salsify cod stew at the in-house restaurant Zephrus on a cold winter night. Perfect. Plus a full American complimentary breakfast. Off-season rates and special offers make Mansion House our top choice for winter travel on the Vineyard.

We only go to Marthas Vineyard off-season and we find the most reasonable accommodations to be at Mansion House. (also the best location). The prices are affordable for very nicely appointed rooms and the complimentary breakfast is excellent. And with the hotel is use of their spa and pool! The staff is super friendly and having the cozy restaurant Zepherus attached to it is very convenient. I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: Theres over 40 rooms starting with queen size which we had which was more than adequate. But poking...
