“Lovely B&B Inn in Edgartown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We recently spent 4 nights at the Victorian Inn in Edgartown. It was one of the best B&B's we've been too. We chose the room with a large covered porch and it was a good choice (room 7). One day we had heavy rain, so we were able to enjoy our porch (the balconies on some of the other rooms couldn't have been used in the rain). The owners and staff were very helpful and nice. The location was great, we could walk everywhere in Edgartown.
The inn is pretty expensive (not unusual for Edgartown), but I was celebrating my birthday and wanted a special place. The rate includes a nice breakfast, afternoon lemonade, ice tea and cookies, flowers and sherry in the room, and use of beach towels and chairs.
There were a several repeat visitors during the time we stayed there.

Room Tip: We loved room 7 on the second floor (good sized room with queen bed and large covered porch). We di...

We loved staying at the Victorian. The breakfasts were incredible! The hosts Steve and Karyn were like family and couldn't be nicer..Quiet, clean, and great location...One block to Main St. Would definitely stay there again..

My husband and I spend almost every July 4th at this inn. We love it. The rooms and service are consistant and we've never had a bad experience. The location couldn't be better. You can walk to everything in Edgartown. If you're bringing a car onto the island, you get a parking spot at the Inn. (Advise them in advance.) That is just the frosting on the cake! Parking is difficult at best here. I'm so picky and I'm so happy to have found this inn. It always meets my expectations. Note that they do not accept pets or children under 9 (I believe). The Inn is best suited for couples or adults. No phones or TV's.

We wanted to return to our honeymoon town for our 20th anniversary, and since the B&B we had stayed at was no longer in business, a friend recommended the Victorian Inn among others. Walking distance to the center of town was required. When I read the reviews, saw the beauty of the rooms and then the "splurge factor" -- our own large porch -- I called for a reservation. We were not disappointed. Our stay was relaxed, totally comfortable, and made even easier by our hosts' knowledge of the community and commitment to service. At Stephen's suggestion, we booked the local conservancy's tour of Chappaquidick. We got a historical and ecological education that was also great fun! We rented bikes, went to South Beach, drove around the Island, and dined in great style. The Victorian's breakfasts were fresh, a bit decadent, and delicious. To help us celebrate, the Caliris gave us a bottle of champagne to enjoy on our porch. All in all, a memorable anniversary. We won't wait another 20 years....

Room Tip: A room with a porch is definitely worth the splurge.

The Victorian Inn is centrally located downtown Edgartown. We walked everywhere and rode our bikes to other Vineyard locations. Our room was beautifully decorated and had two outside balconies that overlooked the town and the bay. The rooms were spotless and the service was excellent. Out host, Steve and Karyn, were always there to answer questions or to provide suggestions on what to do or where to dine. Karyn prepared excellent breakfasts and Steve was our morning entertainment .

Room Tip: We liked the third floor with a balcony for views of the town and bay .

Upon arrival at the Victorian Inn, my wife and I were blown away by the beautiful Victorian Inn. The Inn looks like it belongs in the 18th century, but does not sacrifice any modern comforts or amenities. Steve was a very gracious host, taking time out of his busy day to let our dog play with his two dogs. Karyn's breakfast each morning were fantastic and was the sole reason we chose not to visit any other breakfast spot on the island. On top of the appearance and service at the Victorian, it is a 5 minute walk to the heart of Edgartown.

I highly recommend this location!

Room Tip: The dog-friendly room was very clean and did not smell like animals.

Martha's Vineyard is a long drive (7 hours) and a ferry ride away for us if we drive. Luckily, we are able to make it in less than 2 hours by private plane, which allows us to head there on a moments notice if the weather is going to be pleasant there. Invariably, we call the Victorian Inn and hope we can find a room, as it is one of our favorite Bed and Breakfast's.

Located on the edge of downtown, the inn is an historic, typical, Martha's Vineyard whaling captain's home...not to mention having a role in the movie "Jaws" (home of the Amityville doctor). Because it may be older doesn't mean "old". This attractive B and B has been remodeled and updated to be just plain comfortable. Rooms may be somewhat smaller (certainly not tiny) but remember, it's an historic home, in an historic town.

Breakfast is usually a choice of several items that encourage your thought early in the mornings. The day we stayed, we had a choice of banana pancakes, homemade granola with nuts, berries and yogurt, or a California croissant with egg, that looked delicious, although my wife and I couldn't pass up the banana pancakes! As one of the owners,Steve, passed around the coffee, we continued to be entertained with his humorous tales of the island.

In short, the Victorian Inn isn't one of the biggest places to stay on Martha's Vineyard. It isn't one of the most luxurious...but it's a very comfortable Bed and Breakfast, in what I consider one of the best locations on the island...as well as being a good value for the money.

Room Tip: Ask for a queen or king bed. Doubles are somewhat small for us.
