We visited in early August with two of our children, ages 9 and 12. This was not our first trip to The Vineyard, but it was our first trip to Menemsha. Due to this being planned at the last minute, we were unable to bring a vehicle and subsequently had to take the bus. It's a bit of a process... More

We stayed at the Menemsha Inn in July 2016. It was a wonderful, welcoming experience, near all the things we wanted to do up island. The Inn has tennis courts and a gym, but it was the grounds and seclusion that made it extra special. Highly recommended

The Inn is always great but the lack of a breakfast at the Inn itself removes the community aspect of the cottages where guests would introduce themselves to each other and linger over coffee and breakfast. Restaurant at the Beach Plum is not the same ambience. Also leaves the dining room with this sad emptiness about it. It serves no... More

In the interest of good will I'm choosing to share my specific experiences directly with the management. It is enough to say, read the negative reviews here. They are the reality of our experience. Not sure where the good reviews came from. Virginia at the front desk is as wonderful as everyone says. The setting couldn't be much better but... More

Menemsha is an incredibly special and beautiful quiet village and Menemsha Inns delivers a peaceful and comfortable experience. The Inn's rooms are clean and bright and there is always water, coffee and other little treats available (popcorn, cookies, fruit) in the reception common room. The views are beautiful and you can walk to the beach, to the village shops and... More

Visiting friends up island who recommended this lovely inn. From the moment we arrived until the time we checked out, my husband and I were immersed in the special vibe that is Menemsha. At check in, we were greeted by the gracious and friendly Virginia who was eager to acclimate us to our surroundings and start us on our much... More

Took our kids back to Lucy Vincent beach to see where we got engaged. The rooms have beach passes to the best beaches on the island! Very nice rooms in the inn but did not see the inside of the cottages. Easy walk to the public beach in Menemsha to eat lobster while watching the best sunsets. Use bug spray... More

This is a unique property with cottages and rooms scattered on an amazing and large piece of land, filled with flowers and shrubs, sloping down to Menemsha Beach (about a 10 minute walk by path). Incredible views of the water. Completely understated, like all of Menemsha, with shingled weathered cottages (complete with some peeling paint) that blend into the landscape.... More

Menemsha inn and cottages is a beautiful resort tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the larger towns on Martha's Vineyard. The grounds are breathtaking and our quarters, the Mainstay Suite, had an incredible view of the sun setting over the water. The room itself was comfortable and beautifully appointed - our only disappointments, and they are minor, were... More

These cottages sit on a beautiful piece of property in a stunning part of Martha's Vineyard's up island district. While they are not what I would call "updated", they are comfortable and to be honest, a bit quirky. That being said, it is actually part of the charm of staying here. If these cottages were furnished like a modern hotel,... More
