We had a great stay and I could easily give the Inn a 5 star rating if I only go by what a relaxing and fun time we had. However I want to give a balanced review that is useful to others. We stayed in the Bayberry cottage The positives: Friendly staff Adequate breakfast in nice room Fantastic location, quiet...

Growing up I spent many summers on the Vineyard. When I was little, we would rent a place in Chilmark or Gay Head (as it was then called) and my grandparents liked to stay at the Menemsha Inn or the Beach Plum. I was recently informed that in the mid-1970s my mother got a summer job while in college cleaning...

Dear Sachsman, Thanks for your visit and review. Sarah and I love learning of our guests connections to the inn. Its wonderful how many, like yours, go back across the generations.

This was our first trip to Martha's Vineyard, and it was absolute perfection. We spent 3 nights in the Driftwood Cottage at Menemsha Inn in early October 2012. There are many smaller villages on the island, each with its own flavor -- some abound with farmland, others lined with charming little shops -- and Menemsha was a perfect launching point...

Thanks Kristin F, So glad you enjoyed your stay with us! It is always wonderful to hear from a guest who appreciates the Menemsha Inns and Cottages rustic charm and beautiful setting. It is what made us buy the historic property 15 years ago and why we are stil working hard to keep the magic going strong. October is my...

Immaculately kept gardens with friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in room 51 of the Tea House, a ground floor, large room with a wide terrace. Good beds and plenty of wardrobe space. We only spent two nights and wished we had been able to stay longer to re-charge our batteries. Such beautiful countryside. Breakfast takes place on the first...

A lovely part of the world, we only had one night here but wished we could stay longer, the rooms are large, with a veranda and view over the bay. Only issue was that we did not know it was a "dry" area. So BYO wine! The lobsters from the local fish markets are amazing.

We stayed in the "Mainstay " suite above the reception area. We had a great week there. It was very spacious, and bright. Nice to have the two bathrooms, and the kitchen area. You could see the ocean from the balcony that comes off the master bedroom. The living room furniture could do with an update. Nice central and bright...

This was a terrific place for me, my husband and our two sons (ages 12 and 15). We rented a one bedroom cottage which had a pull out sofa. Since my boys don't sleep well together they were kind enough to bring us a cot. It worked out beautifully. The cottage was clean, charming and had a full kitchen. The...
