A couple of relaxing days

We have had a couple of down days.

Highlights included finding a pair of fresh water lakes in the Nickerson National Park which helped as we have discovered they are having a bit of a shark problem on the cape!

A whale of a day

... a pot of krill. Really caught our interest and passed the time.

The first whale was spotted way off the normal track and when we got to the feeding ground we had 7-9 whales feeding. I am v proud of James' video that he took and have included it with some ropey stills. Also great views of the lighthouses and dunes. We were all really aware of being caught on the wrong side of the boat. We also had three "full breaches" the classic hunchback up and out of the water but ...

Martha's Vineyard and Provincetown

... white, even the jail is white. The business district is Vineyard Haven. Approval must be sought to start a business and there are restrictions of the type of signage that can be displayed (no rooftop and no neon). We also saw the beach where Steven Spielberg shot the movie Jaws. Two of the islanders had parts in the movie and a lot of others were used as extras in the beach scenes. The island became popular as a bolt hole for the wealthy and famous during the 60s. We drove ...

... shell on the top and winded herself and cut two fingers as well. Razor sharp shells all over- bring back Cornwall and weaver fish. Extent of team injuries outlined below in the photos.

Greater injury was the parking ticket we got for not displaying a 'Beach Permit' - smallest sign ever at approach to beach so now need to work out how to pay a fine when it wants a cheque. Ho hum. Only $30 but a hassle.

After rip off last night on a mission to find supermarket. ...

A Day on Martha's Vineyard

A travel blog entry by maighreadquirke

... Vineyard Sound. From his settlement there Gosnold visited Martha's Vineyard many times during the summer he spent in the 'New World'. The native Americans called the island 'Noepe' meaning 'Amid the Waters'- a reference to the two and often conflicting tidal currents at work around the island. Gosnold however named the island 'Martha's Vineyard', probably after his new born daughter and because of the wild grapes that covered the island. Our tour guide ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Veranda House Nantucket

    Not all its cracked up to be

    from

    The decor is fine and the location good, but all is really thin. The "great" sheets are not pressed, or changed during our stay. Our piece of soap was tiny.

    Our room (10) was large with 3 good windows as promised. The bath small, cleaned up and remodeled, but more like my attic than luxury.

    The breakfast was not good. All carbs. All baked goods to sweet. Yes, the quiche was icy, and tooo salty. We ate a great breakfast at the Fog Island Cafe on the last day.

    Nantucket is expensive so I guess the $ 750 I paid 2 months in advance was fair, but the "luxury" is somewhat thin.

    The inn stunk

    from

    False advertising and this would be fine place for young college students who want to get a room somewhere and don't have any expectations. Horrible set up here. Came into our tiny room to find a man's rear-end staring me in the face on a tiny excuse for a balcony right outside OUR window (only window). No fans, no nothing. The owners have much to learn.

    Already booked my return trip

    from

    The staff was exceptionally friendly and attentive and our room was perfect. Plus, the harbor view from the top deck was amazing. We didnt stay on the top floor but we walked up to the top veranda each day to take in the view. And we loved being able to walk two streets over to all the restaurants and shopping in town. We're coming back for longer next time. (and I bought one of the same beds they have for our apartment)

    The Veranda House: Gentle on the Mind/Body/Soul

    from

    The best in Nantucket Hospitality is to be found at the Veranda House...In one of many pleasant exchanges with Ethan Devine, the inn's owner--and a fourth generation Nantucketer--and his wife Alexis, I gained valuable insights into this very special place on this very special island...The management and staff are the most friendly, proficient, responsive and genuinely courteous people to be found anywhere.

    Beyond Charming

    from

    My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful Memorial weekend at The Veranda House. The Inn is simply charming and we have never been so relaxed. I especially loved the updated decor, organic yet contemporary - which is so refreshing in such an amazing historic building. We also enjoyed how central we were to town and it's many quaint shops and resturaunts. Finally, the staff was very accomodating and they make a sweet tea that would make any true southerner proud. We have already booked Memorial weekend 2004.

    The Veranda House is Nantucket

    from

    Beds like butter! Delicious food and ample shopping just minutes to town. Evening sea breezes, relaxing porch brunches, afternoon swims on pristine sandy beaches, shop till you drop, bike rides through natural preserves and great staff support. Looking foward to our next visit this summer.

    Wonderful newly renovated place

    from

    The innkeepers were really welcoming and the beds were comfy and new.

    Veranda House was Perfect

    from

    We've been going to Nantucket for years and this is our favorite place yet. It was perfect for us to relax on the porch or in the gardens.

    We'd never had that sort of open common space at a B&B before. I'm not sure what the guest from Kentucky was talking about with the breakfast, which my wife and I thought was outrageously good. And our room was gorgeous. The frette sheets were tops! We'll definitely be back.

    Disappointed in Veranda House

    from

    While the Veranda House looks charming in the ads and online, we were disappointed in the accomodations. The beds were great but that's about it. We had to share a bathroom,(4 people) which was the size of a closet. The shower was so tiny you couldn't move, and there was no tub. There was no water carafe or any other access to a beverage to be had in the whole place. Breakfast each morning was included, but the quiche was ice cold. The staff were very friendly and the entire place was kept clean. Fresh flowers were in each room, but we had no access to telephones, television (not that we wanted it), radio, or any kind of music. Also, we were required to be quiet after 10 pm! Overall, I've been to better Girl Scout Camps.

    Loved the Veranda House

    from

    The Veranda House was amazing. Its the only affordable place on Nantucket with a fresh, modern look- no fru fru. The most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The verandas and gardens were so relaxing and the view from the top deck is the best i've seen on nantucket. Staff and owners very friendly- we're definitely going back.
