“Nice Stay”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Lovely Rooms. Well appointed and large. However-No place to wash ones own clothing if needed. Washer and Dryer would be great to have if one is in a pinch. The best part of this place is location. The breakfast room is great. However, there are way too many wonderful home baked goods on the island for Mansion House to rely on frozen sweet cakes and pre-boiled and packaged eggs. Anyone who has stayed in a Super-8 motel what I am talking about. Overall a good place to stay- if needed I would be there again.

With thanks to the TA writer above, we are surprised by the comment about the Washer and Dryer. Each guest room has a laundry bag & price list and we are happy to wash, fold & return to the room guest laundry. Vineyard Haven is a real seaside town. The Harbor boasts wooden boat building, along with galleries and dining. Mansion House purposely offers a light continental grab and go, since many of our guests bring their breakfast trays to the harbor viewing cupola deck or even opt to go to one of the many well known and cherished breakfast spots nearby to start their Vineyard day.

We were welcomed right away and shown to our big dog-friendly room on the first floor. The rooms for pets have hardwood floors and access via a separate hallway away from the stairway, elevator and areas used by other guests. This handy arrangement makes for easy in and out.

I stayed at the old hotel before the fire, and this rebuild manages to capture the charm of the original with amenities like an elevator, which makes access to the roof deck and its views of the harbor easy for everyone. Bringing breakfast to the deck is a great way to start the day.

The location is ideal -- close to the ferry, easy walk to the shore, shopping and restaurants. The Cafe Moxie was our favorite but there are many to choose from. Sometime in 2014 an Asian Fusion place is scheduled to open next door adding to the many eateries close by. And there is a bus stop at the corner. If you haven't taken a bus since school, try it. It's a fun way to see the island.

The staff were very attentive in a relaxed and friendly way. They offered to walk my dog while I was out to dinner, so I was able to enjoy a long evening out. I would love to come back myself and definitely recommend the Mansion Inn to anyone coming to MV.. .

My husband I stayed here at the end of September to attend a wedding at Agricultural Hall in W. Tisbury. This property is a perfect location to walk around and enjoy Vineyard Haven. It is a short walk from the ferry and easily accessible with light luggage. No cab needed!
The staff could not have been more accommodating. They were wonderful! Their recommendations for dining, transportation and every aspect of the area was spot on. Each one of the staff we interacted with was friendly, knowledgeable and always pleasant. Our room was on the smaller side but with a nice-sized bathroom. We would definitely stay in this room again. It was meticulously clean and bright. Breakfast in the library area was a plus before heading out each day. We would not hesitate to go back for another stay. Needless to say, we would highly recommend this hotel. You won't be disappointed:)

Perfect location and lovely accommodations. Room was comfortable and the hotel itself has a lot of historical charm. The bed was a little bit too firm for my taste but I didn't come to Martha's Vineyard to sleep.

We stayed at the Mansion House for 3 nights in late September. Lovely room with 2 double beds and a pull out couch was spacious and comfortable for my mother, my sister and myself. The only thing missing was a "desk" - but a quick rearrangement of furniture solved that quickly. Large bathroom, nice continental breakfast, helpful staff and we loved the sea water pool. Having our own parking spot made it easy for us to use the Mansion House as our home base and drive around MV. Would definitely go back!

Look forward to each visit the island, especially when we stay at the Mansion House. Friendly & knowledgable staff make you feel as if it's not a hotel, but better. Our first choice when we need a quick recharge and R&R. The best little spa and exercise facility that's not only convienient but now offers brand new equipment. Any room we've stayed in was comfortable, incredibly clean and offered a nice view. Don't forget to check out the Cupola. We got a great rate for the Off-Season in October. We'll be back. Thank you.

Room Tip: Higher the better - Floorwise, less street noise.

Beautifully done old hotel within walking distance of the ferry dock. We had a gorgeous large room with a water view. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Since we were in office season and arrived around 7pm, everything was quiet. There was only one restaurant close by open for dinner, the Cafe Moxie, and it was great.

Room Tip: Our water view room, 302, was nice and large. Loved the French door onto a small balcony. The view w...
