Stayed at the 1720 home for my wife's birthday. Cheryle, our hostess, was very accomodating and went the extra mile to make our stay wonder-filled, with flowers showing up at our doorway. Breakfast was delicious, with fresh fruit, granola, breads and yogurt along with some columbia java. We stayed in the Garden Room and it was spacious and clean. The...

This accomodation is a short walk from the ferry. And if you like History, you will enjoy the decor, we sure did. The hospitality was wonderful and the food was delicious. Everything was so neat and clean. My sister, mother and I stayed there and we had our own private bathroom. We were able to leave our things in the...

Ok so the good first: The b&b is in a nice location for walks, a small amount of shopping, and there is a good running route out towards the north point of vineyard haven. The house does have some historical interest as well. Now the bad: The room was small and not clean - it had cobwebs in the corners,...

The 1720 House is a very special place. The service is wonderful...a lot of extras such as beach umbrellas and picnic baskets and even some fruit packed for us by the owner. The rooms are lovely and the breakfast quite fresh, organic coffee, local dairy products and generous portions. Location could not be closer to a beach and town. We...

I had great recommendations for cultural events on the island. Would never have found the special places I enjoyed without the good advice from the inn. My yellow room converted to twins and came with a newly finished private bath. Loved it!

I just got back from my stay at the 1720 House. The B&B is centrally located, which is great and makes it easy to find. We stayed in the American "Red" Room, which is easily identifiable by the abundance of American flags. It was supposed to have a private bath, but it was located across/ down the hall so I...

Abby and her staff were wonderful and welcoming. They helped with recommendations and the Inn was cozy and conveniently located to down town. We were very happy we choose the 1720 House for our honeymoon.

This was our first trip to Martha's Vineyard and my daughter and I stayed at the 1720 House. When the taxi van drove by the address, my daughter wished it was this house as it was beautiful on the outside. When we got inside, it was very nice and comfortable with a very cute Americana look to it!!!!! Our room...

Abby Hirsch's B&B 1720 House, is a fantastic, charming deal, with a great garden, an unbelievably beautiful giant tree, porch and good natured service. The place is immaculate, with great tips on what's doing, where to eat, shop and laze. I stayed for a week, just to get away and I could not have been more cared for, left to...

The staff really went out of their way to make my stay easy, giving me tips on places to go, some of the off-beat treats on Martha's Vineyard an running a well-organized place. The inn itself is a wonderful combination of old, new and not over-decorated. It's a good bet.
