I would reccomend this place to anyone looking for a more rustic resort type of property. The staff was extremely friendly and accomodations met my needs. The property is really beutiful and worth the price I paid. I did stay off-season though, I'm not certain I would pay full summer rate as the accomodations were a little more basic than...

We used to stay here, and loved the cottage we rented. Then new management came, and the rental prices skyrocketed. The cottages have been updated a bit, but it is not worth paying over $4,000 for a one-bedroom cottage. We have recently rented a whole house, with two or three bedrooms for around $2,300. So, yes, it is a beautiful...

Stunning setting and beautifully quaint cottages with all the amenities. Rode bikes to Gay Head, walked around the picturesque property and witnessed the gorgeous sunsets. Quiet and relaxing - the perfect place to enjoy a weekend in the Vineyard.

First, I would definitely stay here again. There are many things to recommend this property. We loved the proximity to Menemsha village itself. We could phone in our lobster order to Larsen's during the day and pick it up just before dinner, a two minute drive from the Inn. We absolutely loved that our cottage came with a pass to...

We had previously stayed at the Inn and loved the location and rustic charm. Having not been there in 2 years we immediately noticed it had declined. Driving up to find a screen falling out of the window which remained for days, office with shabby furniture and only a simple pot of coffee not even in a carafe in the...

We've been coming to Menemsha Inn and Cottages for years, and we absolutely love it. Wonderful setting, lovely cottages, and the amazing up-island, Menemsha vibe. And, Virginia is the best!! Greg Manousos

We visited in early August with two of our children, ages 9 and 12. This was not our first trip to The Vineyard, but it was our first trip to Menemsha. Due to this being planned at the last minute, we were unable to bring a vehicle and subsequently had to take the bus. It's a bit of a process...

We stayed at the Menemsha Inn in July 2016. It was a wonderful, welcoming experience, near all the things we wanted to do up island. The Inn has tennis courts and a gym, but it was the grounds and seclusion that made it extra special. Highly recommended

The Inn is always great but the lack of a breakfast at the Inn itself removes the community aspect of the cottages where guests would introduce themselves to each other and linger over coffee and breakfast. Restaurant at the Beach Plum is not the same ambience. Also leaves the dining room with this sad emptiness about it. It serves no...

In the interest of good will I'm choosing to share my specific experiences directly with the management. It is enough to say, read the negative reviews here. They are the reality of our experience. Not sure where the good reviews came from. Virginia at the front desk is as wonderful as everyone says. The setting couldn't be much better but...
