I remember to take a few pictures of the Nantucket streets and homes which are typical of the downtown area. One thing we begin to notice. Sometimes the homes are painted only on the front side that faces the public streets. The rest remains weathered, unpainted wood.

Historical Traveler Reviews Mansion House Vineyard Haven
Loved the mansion house rooms
We Loved the Beautiful, Clean and nice layout of the room! The bathroom was spacious and the shower was great as well.
There was a small, quiet fridge which was a great addition to the room. The rooftop was wonderful, with views of the harbor. The staff if very helpful and hotel is new and has a wonderful feel about .
We enjoyed it very much.
This trip, through absolutely no fault of the hotel, started out as a disaster. Because of roadwork delays in Falmouth, we missed two ferries, arrived late to the Island for only an overnight stay, missed the last available scheduled spa/massage appointment (the only one we would have this year) and caused us to want to go home as soon are we arrived. Not close to how we wished to celebrate our little wedding anniversary get-a-way.
The Mansion House is a nice facility. The room was nice. In the morning, the shower was ice cold. I called the desk. They told me no one could work the tub faucets. I tried the intructions the woman gave me. Still no luck. The engineer came up and said the faucets were impossible. Ours turned out to be broken and took a day to fix. They tried to convince us to move to a lesser room.
We stayed at the end of October when there were hardly any tourists on the island. The location of the hotel is excellent, a 5 minutes walk from the ferry terminal and car rental agencies, and a grocery store - STOP & SHOP.
My wife and I spent a weekend on 'the Vineyard' and chose this hotel based on price and the hotel's stated amenities. Easily half the price of its competitors for the weekend we were there, we were a bit anxious at what we might find given the low price and the reviews of the inn's staff at TripAdvisor.
There was seven of us that traveled to Marthas and we stayed at the Mansion House. The Building and Facility were very nice. Modern country is the best way I can think to describe it. The staff was helpful in providing advise to different aspects to the island. The roof top deck is an ideal and beautiful place to enjoy a bottle of wine and watch a sunset.
Terrible Staff - Great Room
I absolutely loved the room and decor however the staff needs some help in customer service. The lobby computer didn't work and the staff was less than helpful. They exuded a "don't care" attitude. I didn't feel I got what I paid for and would not come back to this establishment. Next time I will stay in either Oak Bluffs or Edgartown.
Loved the Mansion House
Wow! The Mansion House is a wonderful choice for touring Martha's Vineyard.
It is very easy to walk to from the dock. The rooms are fresh and new.
The beds are fabulous with lovely linens.The bathrooms are large. We also enjoyed a super breakfast. The accomodations were top notch.
Beautiful, breathtaking rooms
The Mansion House Inn has the most beautiful rooms. The king bed was extra comfy! The room we had had a small balcony with a beautiful view of the water! The rooms are a bit pricey and are all remodeled. The staff was VERY friendly, courteous and helpful throughout our stay. The restaurant had good food but lousy service. Very expensive dinners. Beware they charge you $5.00 to cork your own bottle of wine. Vineyard Haven is a dry town so it is BYOB in all restaurants in the area.
Great Value on Martha's Vineyard
Mansion House is a great value on Martha's Vineyard. It has classic island charm and everything you want is right on site. Their restuarant is amazing. Incldued in their rates is breakfast which is over the top. I highly suggest anyone looking for a quality hotel at an affordable price consider visiting this place. This is for sure one of Martha's Vineyard best kept secrets!
