We first stayed at the Mansion House in Vineyard Haven for two nights, then moved over to this Inn.
It depends on what you are looking for, but I do not recommend this for the older crowd. We are in our 50's and we were by far the oldest of a pretty full house. Not that this was a bad thing but be prepared.
The house is older, but all of the Vineyard is. The rooms were clean, and we had # 9, which is a nice large room. Beware the shower door must be kept closed or the smoke detector will go off on you!
The Inn itself is nice, breakfast what you would expect, cookies, and a refrigerator for your wine. Lots of books, room to sit, and a porch overlooking Circuit Avenue.
This is where I have a few things to note. First of all, the speakers on the porch are hooked up for your ipod , so you find yourself listening to everyones favorite tunes, fairly loud. Not necessarily relaxing, and the one guy loved Cosby Stills, and it got pretty boring and anoying. My advise to Eric the inn keeper, kill that... It is not for the relaxing people. Yes, it is great for a party house, but that is not what an Inn in the Vineyard should be really.
Also the porch is full of everyone drinking, and Eric had champagne out for some guests, and not others. Again, kinda rude I thought. Some people were back for their fifth visit, and it was like Eric had company and we were intruding. This happened every night. Kinda strange I thought.
We did like the location very much, easy walk or cab ride. The maids did not clean room well, but that was okay.
You will see in some posts Eric thinks he is a cool dude. The fact is he is pretty nice but sorta like being in his house and he is a bit a of a hippy dippy. That again is fine, if you are 20=35, but beyond that, you may want to go somewhere else.
I want this review to be fair, and not to hurt his business, because he was very nice, and runs a nice business. But you sit on the porch while he parties both nites, he has his kids out there on the porch, the ipod is booming, and you expect the college kids to come storming in.
Sooo if you want a vacation that is for the cool,,,hip,,,,crowd, do this INN. You will really love it.
WE did have a good time, but I would go where we fit in better next time, and pay more.
Hard to explain,,,but if you go,,, you will see. It is kinda like being at woodstock
