“your best bet!”
Reviewed October 7, 2008

As I walked up SeaView Avenue, Isabells Beach House looked warm and welcomeing. I was compelled to look inside and as I walked up on the beautiful freshly painted porch I noticed it was much larger than I had thought.The inside of the b and b is crisp and fresh while still mantaining a nolstalgic past .If ever there was a quinticential place to stay on Martha's Vineyard ,this is it.Isabell is a perfect a host .She fusses over you and makes you feel so confortable and welcome.All I can say is if you want the perfect Martha's Vineyard expirence stay there. You will be back again and again.

My husband and I enjoyed two wonderful nights at this charming beach house! Our room overlooked the water where we watched beautiful sunrises. Isabelle is a delightful hostess. She is very knowlegeable of the area and provided us with great restaurant recommendations.

If you go, be sure to sit on the front porch to enjoy breakfast, a glass of wine or coffee/tea and freshly baked cookies in the afternoon.

We've been to the Vineyard quite a few times and always stayed in Edgartown, but this time we were finding it impossible to book anywhere that looked nice for under $350 a night - at the end of September! Crazy. I was initially attracted by the reviews on Tripadvisor and I have to say they are all true: Isabelle is very good at what she does, and makes everyone feel welcome to what feels like her home. We stayed right at the top of the house, with a wonderful sea view. The house is beautiful and atmospheric; beachy rather than chintzy, which was actually a welcome change. And Isabelle was offering a special deal of the third night free, which made our stay a very good bargain at $350 for three nights. I'm incredibly fussy about hotels, but I can thoroughly recommend the Beach House - it's a real 'Vineyard' kind of place and Isabelle is to be congratulated.

After an extensive internet search of all the B&B's, hotels and guesthouses that Martha's Vineyard had to offer we finally settled upon Isabelle's Beach House in Oak Bluffs and it was the best decision we made !

Firstly, after a long trip from London, flight, drive, ferry (and a scare from immigration - make sure you have at least 6 months left on your passport before entering the US) we received the warmest welcome from Isabelle and her team. The place is beautiful, we checked in quickly and went straght to our room, which was small but perfectly formed, the tallest iron bed, the vertically challenged may need a ladder, with the comfiest mattress! We had pre-booked a sea view (we were in room 2) and we were not disappointed, we woke up every morning to a beautiful sunrise over the ocean (piccie attached).

Breakfast was great, which most mornings we had on the fabulous porch! muffins, cereal a huge bowl of fruit, juice, coffee and freshly made waffles with maple syrup, cream and fresh fruit - delicious! (we did plenty of walking to burn it all off!) a plate of delicious cookies also arrived during the afternoon, although get in quick they don't last long....

In summary, this is the perfect location, right on the beach with fabulous views, an easy walk to the town centre and harbour, with all the bars and restaurants etc., and such a warm welcome from Isabelle and her team, we didn't want to leave and would go back in a heartbeat.

My mom and I stayed at Isabelle's Beach House on Sept 1st for one evening.....we wish we could have stayed longer, but we were on a week-long vacation and had to move on to Brimfield MA for the Antique show. I had been to Martha's Vineyard twice before and had always stayed in Edgartown, I am so glad that we decided to stay in Oak Bluffs on my Mom's first trip here. Isabelle was a lovely hostess. The rooms were clean and decorated beautifully. The breakfast waffle was delicious. The view from the front porch is breathtaking. The price on the summary page shows an average of $272.....the cost of our room was $175. Although each township of the Vineyard has it's own unique qualities, I must say that Oak Bluffs is my favorite. The gingerbread houses are a must see!

Spent the weekend at Isabelle's and i have to say everything was delightful. We're from New York but travel loads so have seen many hotel rooms and this place surpassed most of them. Isabelle herself could not be more helpful. The place is fresh, clean and cute. The rooms smell delicious and are very quaint. Breakfast was buffet style but Isabelle makes fresh waffles every morning. The beach house is only 2 minutes from the ferry and has a lovely porch to sit out in the evenings to watch the sun going down. very impressed and i never write reviews for anything!!!!

Isabelle the innkeeper is a remarkable hostess. Her attention to detail and her willingness to help at any time was fully appreciated.. The Inn is very clean and very comfortable. The location is amazing and the view is outstanding . The porch overlooks the sound and is a great place to people watch or relax and read a book. You are centrally located and can walk to town aa well as the gingerbread houses. A car is not a requirement because you are close to the ferry station. Isabelle is always available to hitch a taxi if you want to visit the other towns. You also have the option of taking the bus which runs every 20 minutes in front of the inn. Staying at Isabelle's Inn is a real treat and requires no fuss or muss. I hope someday you can stop in and stay. I will be back next year for sure.. Hope to see you there
