A perfect stay!

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at The Victorian Inn in Edgartown. The house is lovely and the owners and staff are fun, kind, helpful, and of course, hospitable. The meals were amazing, gourmet and everything was super-fresh. The location was perfect for us to walk and bike where-ever we wanted. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this Inn, Edgartown and Marta's Vineyard in general.

We spent 3 nights at the Inn. Tis very well furnished, clean, comfortable, and so close to everything. The Caliris are the perfect innkeepers. Karyn is an excellent cook. The breakfasts were outstanding. The afternoon cookies were fabulous. And Stephen, well Stephen is someone you will never forget. He is intelligent, funny, informative, friendly, and always shines with good humor. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. I would recommend the Vic and will definitely return.

Best B&B on Martha's Vineyard!

Gourmet breakfast, lovely rooms - most with balconies, quiet (no TV's so your neighbor won't be keeping you up with the noise), very gracious hosts (Steve & Karen), walk to shops and shore. Oh yes, excellent cookies and teas in the afternoon and a very nice bedtime apertif on the bedstand.
