Travelers' Choice
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!

Just spent the last 3 days in Edgartown at the Christopher. Marla and Julie are the perfect hosts! Not only is it cozy and gorgeous, but there is a true hospitality and warmth at the Christopher that is so rare to find. The Christopher is the best and I look forward to returning often. Thank you Marla and Julie for a lovely stay❤️❤️

You are really missing out if you travel to Martha's Vineyard and don't stay at the Christopher. An amazing boutique hotel right in downtown Edgartown with stylish but quaint rooms (great interior design) AND their customer service is impeccable! They make everyone staying feel special and cared for and they are all about FUN! Marla is amazing gives great advise on getting around the island and providing a map of what to see. They have a Fall N Fun package going on when I stayed in November and it was a really great deal (Flight at Bad Martha's Brewery, Cheese tasting upon arrival from Grey Barn Farm, handcrafted coasters from Chilmark Pottery, a picnic for two (pick our your own goodies) from Morning Glory Farm, two cups of chowder from 19 Raw PLUS you can add on a Jeep rental for your entire stay. The staff are just so sweet, welcoming and knowledgeable (shoutout to Marla!). My husband and I went for my birthday and we are ready to go again like next week!

Besides being perfectly located in Edgartown, The Christopher is a historic and beautiful building that has been painstakingly remodeled and impressively decorated. If you like a chic place to stay then this is it. On top of all the staff are attentive, thoughtful and kind. We had warm cookies in the afternoon a light breakfast to get us going and a map with hand drawn notes on places to explore throughout the island. We will return over and over again!

Breakfast bags to go complete with a menu of inspirational songs to download, warm freshly baked cookies in the afternoon, a perfect patio lined with comfortable sofas and a fire pit, and perhaps the most comfortable bed (in room #10 - ask for it!) I have ever slept in are but four of the secret delights I found at the Christopher. Marla and Julie attended to our every need. They provided a detailed map with handwritten comments to ensure that we enjoyed most everything Martha's Vineyard had to offer. And were there to help us in anyway that they could. The location itself is on historic Waters Street, Edgartown which is perfectly located near restaurants and the water. It was a perfect B&B which made our trip so very memorable. When we go back, we know where we will stay! For the record, I am not a paid reviewer, nor a family member, just a BIG FAN. Thank you Marla and Julie for a great family getaway weekend.

We loved our honeymoon stay at the Christopher. Our room, the King suite, was gorgeously appointed and the bed was so comfortable. We enjoyed the view from the deck and the extremely comfortable deck lounge chairs. The bathroom was fabulous, lots of room in the closets and the bureau. The lamp s had chargers so that was a great feature. And the location could not be beat- so close to downtown and walking distance to all the restaurants, shops and the dock. Super special welcome from Marla and her staff- she booked dinner for us, gave us great advice about 19 Raw (the best!!) and keep the carafe of coffee coming. Hope to be back sometime to celebrate our anniversary.
