“Perfect Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

We had a great stay at the Mansion House for our mini-moon! The room was exactly as pictured/described and the accomodations were more than comfortable. I, too, like another reviewer loved the pillows & pillowcases- they were so unique and incredibly comfy! Grab & Go breakfast was perfect for early risers to get to the beach. The front desk staff was more than helpful and always asked about your day and if anything was needed- definitely a plus being somewhere we weren't familiar with!

My only reasoning for not giving 5 stars is the location. It is GREAT for some- a walk from the ferry, close to a few little shops & cafes, however, being young newlyweds- not familiar with the area- we were informed when we arrived that it was a dry town and only a limited number of restaurants served beer & wine- most of which closed prior to 10. So we found ourselves in Oak Bluffs most of our visit.

Otherwise, we highly recommend Mansion House for your Vineyard stay!

We have visited the Mansion House for the past 6 years each summer and will continue. Each time the staff is excellent, the rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. And the location in Vineyard Haven is perfect.

From the moment we entered the welcoming foyer we were treated expertly. Room was read as planned and the concierge Ray was so very helpful getting us oriented!

Food allergies are always a problem when I travel and every effort was made for my comfort in choosing restaurants.

For such a busy, lively, yet peaceful getaway, I forgot all about eh stresses of everyday life, if only for a few days.
Planning on retuning next week wi my 2 adult daughters. BLMV-Boston

Room Tip: Ask for the Jr Suite........efficient for a night 'in' or late breakfast on the private deck...

Green Features: Bedding was fresh and comfortable. Towels were crisp and sail white!

We loved our stay here. Wish it could have been longer. My sisters and I stayed in one of the rooms with the king bed and the trundle bed and all beds were very comfortable. I personally slept on the bottom trundle and slepted like a rock!! The best part was the pillow...so nice I need to find these pillows for home. The room itself was clean and pretty. Loved the colors. Awesome shower!! The Mansion House Staff were very helpful and the hotel was beautiful. Would definately stay here next time we visit. The only downfall was the Martha' Vineyard restaurants only serve beer and wine with dinner. :( So we had to spend a lot of time in Old Bluff because we like our mixed drinks.

Pillow perfection is our goal! We ponder each item in the rooms from the Guest’s point of view and love it when our choice is validated. With our thanks, we have contacted the reviewer above to send her a pillow! Thank you. When this guest returns, perhaps, like many other, guests, she can bring her beverage of choice or order from a local package store and enjoy a drink on the harbor viewing deck. Complimentary ice and lemonade is available there for our guests.

I very much enjoyed my stay at Mansion House. The room was quite large and very clean and nicely decorated. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast each morning was a nice touch. It was very convenient to the ferry and the busses to take you to other areas of the island. The only drawback is the area (Vineyard Haven) did not have as much shopping and attractions as other parts of the vineyard so you do need to take the bus if you want a night out or good shopping but for the price it's worth the effort to travel.

My wife and I stayed at the Mansion House for a weekend stay recently. We visit the Vineyard frequently since our son and his girlfriend live and work there. We booked two rooms, one as a gift for our son and girlfriend for a weekend "staycation". We have stayed at several MV hotels over the years, and this is the first one that has ever exceeded, let alone meet, our expectations. The rooms are spacious with large bathrooms. Everything in the room was pristine, crisp white sheets on the bed, sparkling clean bathroom, everything you would want in a hotel. Our room overlooked the main street with a small balcony so you could "people watch". On the roof is a great deck where you can go up and get some sun, have coffee in the morning, enjoy the views of he harbor, whatever. They even have a complimentary lemonade station on the roof. Downstairs off the lobby is an excellent restaurant which is also a must to try. Every morning you can take your room tray (also a nice touch) downstairs and grab a coffee and basic breakfast items and bring them up to the room. The staff are very friendly and helpful. This hotel is an order of magnitude classier than the typical MV hotel and I would highly recommend staying there.

Room Tip: upper rooms give the best views. There are harbor view rooms and main street view rooms.

Green Features: the shampoos and soaps provided were all eco-friendly. The towels were so clean we used the same towels all weekend. And they will not change the sheets unless you request it, which we did not.

Liked the hotel in general-the room was nice and clean-problem was the nighttime. Do not get a room on Beach Road-especially first floor-you can literally touch the cars from your room they are that close and it's so noisy. Mopeds, motorbikes, cars, loud music-ugh. This road in summer is incredibly busy-do not expect any amount of sleep. I was traveling with children-frustrating. I would not book again-for the price point this noise issue should not be so bad and there is no way they aren't aware of this. I booked in February too so it wasn't last minute-disappointing.
