We planned a two day island getaway for friends visiting from England. It was just a perfect retreat.
Left our car in Woods Hole at the transient parking lot, then took the ferry to Vineyard Haven. We ate our lunch from "The Pie in the Sky " sandwich shop while on the ferry. Arriving on Martha's vineyard it was a short walk to the Mansion House, which is located in downtown Vineyard Haven with views of the harbor on one side. It was convent to local transportation and some good resturants. The hotel was just lovely, our room was on the downtown side however there was very little noise from the street and our English friends had a harbor view room. The rooms looked as if they had been freely painted, very clean, great towels and bathrooms and a very comfortable bed. In the morning a continental breakfast was available with hard boiled eggs, fresh coffee, fruit and sweets. The staff were friendly and efficient.
Tuesday evening, we had dinner in the Asian restaurant located in the hotel. We stayed for two days and it felt as if it were longer, so relaxing we didn't use the spa, however it was available to us.
