My husband and I received a gift certificate from family for a stay at Martha's Vineyard. Because we called the inn and spoke with owner, Ginger, within 24 hrs of our arrival we were given an additional 10%off our 2 night stay. Ginger was very helpful in guiding us to select the best room for our desires from what remained available. We chose the Chatham in the Guest House on the back of the property. Two reasons made us choose the Guest House over the main house. First, the breakfast was delievered to our door each morning at 9 am, so we could sleep late and not dress for breakfast. Second,the Guest House rooms also had tv's, the Main House rooms do not. Also, you should be aware this B & B is about 5 mi out of the town of South Haven even though the address makes it sound like it is right in town.
The room itself was cosy. The whirlpool tub took up quite a bit of room and to be honest, we did not even use it. There were a few picky problems with the room, but possibly of interest to some readers. The queensize bed was comfortable, but the sheets were not spotless. There were crumbs on the bed that were not from us. The patterned comforter hid them well until we sat on the bed. There were a few cobwebs up in the room corners. The chairs in the room were vintage and not comfortable to sit on for an extended time of reading--one of our cherished pasttimes. The gas fireplace was not an easy one to get going but we did it. Do not keep it on all night as it gets the room too hot. We had to turn it off and then the room gets quite chilly , but we loved the duvet to snuggle in and chase the cold away.
But there was much to make us smile. The nightly cookies Ginger provided were delicious, particularly the oatmeal walnut ones. In the kitchenette outside our room there was tea and hot chocolate and popcorn for the mic always available. A small fridge was also there for our use. There was a good selection of movies for the VCR (no DVD!) The breakfasts were very good. The first morning were Ginger's famous apple pancakes, yogurt and granola, grapefruit, and orange juice. The 2nd morning was even better with an egg and sausage stata, warm cinnamon roll,red potatoes and poached pear that was amazing, and orange juice. Check out was a breeze.
We would definitely recommend this B&B to you. Larger rooms are available and if we return we would go for one of those.
