Completely renovated for a grand re-opening for the 2016 season... Unwind and soak in an island vibe at The Christopher (formerly The Victorian), a fully remodeled 15-room boutique Edgartown hotel. A back courtyard features both sunny and shady spots to lounge and enjoy our BYOB mixer bar. Guest rooms feature plush beds and modern amenities, such as USB ports and Apple TV. Some rooms feature private balconies. Edgartown Harbor, the shops and galleries of Main and Water streets, and world-class restaurants are just outside the front door. Chic yet unpretentious. Luxe yet welcoming. You can't help but relax and enjoy yourself amidst the stylishly laid-back design!

Property's Favorite Review
We just celebrated our fifth anniversary with 3 days at the Christopher, which is nestled right in the historic district. Our quiet, comfortable, elegantly whimsical room had two Juliet balconies overlooking the town and the bay. Marla made our visit to Martha’s Vineyard effortless with all her great maps, breakfasts, recommendations, and assistance. She is host, manager, chef, concierge, tour guide, and girlfriend all wrapped into one. We didn’t want to leave, but we’re definitely planning a return visit!

The Christopher proved to be the perfect location for our 20th Wedding Anniversary and first time stay on Martha's Vineyard/Edgartown. We were literally steps away from shopping, dining, biking, trails, the beach, and gorgeous views. But what stands out above all is the phenomenal customer service; The moment you walk in the door you feel like family. Marla and Julie are exceptional at their jobs. They are both truly sincere and genuinely kind people. We had hand written notes, personalized maps, a provided iPad, and recommended travel opportunities waiting for us to help navigate the island. Breakfast each morning was prompt, hearty, delicious and homemade. As a big breakfast eater, I loved the subtle changes in the menu from day to day! The housekeeping is superb; our room was clean and decorated masterfully. Our stay in MV was simply perfect, thanks to Marla and her crew! We highly recommend The Christopher and hope to return again soon!

We are so honored that you chose to stay with us for such a special occasion (a huge congratulations on 20 years!) and we can't help but smile hearing you say that your time with us was perfect! Love that you enjoyed everything from the tasty breakfast spread to our central, walkable location, your clean and beautifully decorated room, to the next-level customer service. The entire crew hopes to welcome you both back again soon!

We stayed here on a long weekend in June...as we were in the cab on the way, we heard from Marla welcoming us! You will see her terrific service is a common thread on the reviews and it's well-deserved. She goes above + beyond - we did not have to think too much about plans or what to do - she had lots of suggestions and if we were interested she made it happen - what you want when on holiday! Our room was lovely and spacious....breakfast each day was delicious! The location could not be better! We will return here on a next visit no question about it!

We stayed in "The Lark" -- a room on the 3rd floor. It was spacious and had a deck to sit and enjoy the view. Beautiful hard wood floors and nicely appointed. The inn is spotless and they have the most fabulous breakfasts. There is a backdoor patio for the guests that has a nice fire pit for relaxing in the evenings. The staff is absolutely wonderful. The only caution would be that if you have trouble with stairs, request a room on the first floor since there is no elevator.

The Lark Suite is certainly our most spacious and luxurious room and how wonderful is a relaxing morning or evening on that deck? It always feels so fantastic knowing that our guests enjoyed their time with us and we're so glad that you found so many things, from the backyard patio to the fire pit, fabulous breakfast and wonderful stay to be so fantastic. We hope to see you soon!
