“I think you'll enjoy it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2010

Isabelle's is a very nice B&B, right on the oceanfront in Oak Bluffs, and is within walking distance from most of the attractions in town. The breakfast is "Continental" with bagels, fresh muffins, fruit, and made to order waffles, served from 8 - 10:30 AM. Isabelle is a gracious hostess, as are her several employees.

The room we stayed in is on the small side, but typical for a B&B. There is a huge front porch with rocking chairs, overlooking the ocean......perfect for relaxing and watching the world go by. There is a beach right across Seaview St, where one could go swimming is one wanted (and didn't mind the cold water!)

Over all, I would recommend Isabelle's......I think you'll enjoy it!

This is the first time I've ever stayed in a B&B. I would definitely stay here again. The service was very friendly, professional and accommodating. My husband and I stayed here for our 10th anniversary and it was very romantic and quiet - exactly what we needed on our trip away from the kiddos.

We stayed in a room that had it's own entrance, in the back of the property. I sort of liked this feature. The room was very clean and decorated simply. I thought the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and the shower had plenty of water pressure/hot water. Nothing that I can think of to complain about or warn against. Except, the addition of a tall mirror would be really nice. I had a hard time getting dressed without that.

The location is really, really perfect. With the beautiful view of the sea right out the front porch and a really great beach, how could it get better? The restaurants and shopping are a very short walk, just a few blocks. We felt very safe walking after dark too. There is also a nice public area just down the street. And, there are plenty of places to rent bikes which we would have done if the weather had been nicer. You can also catch the bus right outside.

Breakfast was good! Coffee was good! Cookies were really good!

Overall, great place, nice, clean, inviting, cozy. Best for adults. I recommend it.

I had always wanted to go to Martha's Vineyard and when my husband and I finally got the opportunity to go, I researched the accommodations extensively. I chose Isabelle's, hoping it would be even half as nice as it looked. Not only did Martha's Vineyard exceed my expectations, so did Isabelle's! I don't think we would stay anywhere else if we got the chance to go again. Everything was wonderful! Isabelle is so sweet and her yummy waffles every morning and warm, delicious chocolate chip cookies every afternoon were the best treats!

On a dark and stormy night, the welcome was so inviting. From the plate of cookies by the fire, to the spotless rooms, we were very well cared for. We travel often, and stay in the best hotels in the world, and our standards are very high. We are repeat visitors to Isabelle's and we truly look forward to returning. Isabelle is a great inn-keeper - she is lively and invites you to treat the inn as home. The rooms are appropriate to the seaside location - the beds soft and inviting, the decorating, beachy but spare. Every room has it's own bathroom, and is stocked with plush, white towels daily, lovely soaps, shampoos and lotions and little details, like mini-fridges, wine glasses and coasters by the bed for your water glass. In the morning, coffee is freshly brewed by the cup, muffins fresh-baked, and home-made waffles topped with fruits and whipped cream. The views of the Nantucket Sound can't be beat - especially from the porch, on a clear night watching the moon rise over the water at night with a cocktail - just a great place to be.

Great host, clean room, ocean view, close to shopping-walkable.
A spur of the moment trip to MVs over Thanksgiving holiday, no reservations,
could not have gone any better. We had a great time and it started with the accomodations.

Great location across the street from Oak Bluff's Town beach, a couple of blocks from the center of town. The staff (and owner) were gracious and friendly, the room was as advertised, clean and comfortable and the breakfast with home-made waffles, bagels, fresh fruit, coffee and tea was nicely done. the common areas are well appointed and the deck while a bit cold and wet to use during a nor-easter would be lovely on a not too cold day. The home has good energy. Not inexpensive. but little is on Martha's Vineyard and it was worth the money.

If you are looking for a great B&B, look no further. Isabelle's is impeccably clean and cozy with a wonerful view of the ocean. The inn is within walking distance of the ferry as well as town restaurants and shops. Isabelle makes fresh waffles for breakfast and has a variety of breakfast foods available including homemade muffins. If you are looking for a little treat during the day, fresh baked chocolate chip cookies are always available and create a wondeful aroma. This is one of those places that after you stay there you know you will be going back.
