Dear Brandon H., It was a pleasure celebrating your 20th Wedding Anniversary. We are absolutely pleased to hear we fully delivered as that special place for such a meaningful celebration. The Martha's Vineyard is a wonderful accommodation choice to celebrate a milestone like an anniversary. Martha's Vineyard features a private courtyard and entrance, oceanfront deck, hot tub and sauna. It is the perfect choice for those looking to unwind in a private retreat. I am delighted to hear you tried our Aromatherapy Bath Service, especially after such a long drive. Our exclusive Private Dining option allows our team to communicate with guests on a more personal and intimate level. Your eight course meal paired with wines/spirits is the ultimate dining experience we offer at Cara. It is such a wonderful experience! The entire Chanler team would like to thank you for such kind words. It means so much to us that we have created an atmosphere that both of you will remember forever. We all look forward to welcoming you and your wife back to The Chanler soon. Sincerely, Lani Shufelt, Proprietress

Is this a good place to travel to in October? Or best in the summer?
Dear JoNNewYork, Thank you for your inquiry. October in Newport, Rhode Island averages a high temperature of 62 degrees and a low temperature of 51 degrees (70s are possible during the first half of the month with 50s possible during the later half). Many guest believe this is perfect weather for exploring Newport's Cliff Walk, Mansions, Waterfront and Fall Foliage. The town is also less busy than during the summer season which guests say makes their visit even more enjoyable. There is plenty to do no matter what time of year you visit The Chanler. Is there a specific date you had in mind? If you would like more information, we would be happy to contact you at your preferred email address. You can also contact us directly at 401-847-1300. Sincerely, Chanler Guest Services

Do the rooms have two double or two queen beds? Rollout sofa available?
They have both we have a king at home but on the road we like 2 queens. This like many others also have an extra bed on request for those people that may have kids with them. You should write or call to find out other details. Not everyone has the same needs and might not have all your answers.

Hello, Thank you for contacting The Chanler at Cliff Walk. The weather in Block Island this week will be chillier than here in Newport. The Block Island ferry begins its navigation between Newport and Block Island on June 24th and that will last until September 4th. Best, John, Marketing Coordinator

It's mostly eat & drink. A little chilly this time of year although its supposed to be pretty nice this week. I would wait until mid May if possible.
