The Christopher

24 South Water Street , Edgartown, MA 02539 USA (Show map)


Unwind and soak in an island vibe at The Christopher (formerly The Victorian), a fully renovated 15-room boutique Edgartown hotel. The Christopher's bright design draws from the best of two beloved islands: think "The Vineyard meets St. Barths" in feel. Chic yet unpretentious; luxe yet welcoming. With breezy blues, purples and pops of coral, the color scheme is very coastal and calming. A back courtyard features both sunny and shady spots to lounge and enjoy our BYOB mixer bar. Guest rooms feature plush beds and modern amenities, such as USB ports and Apple TV. Some even feature private balconies. You can't help but relax and enjoy yourself amidst the stylishly laid-back design in this gorgeous, iconic location!

Great Stay for 2017 Shoulder Season!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Christopher. Julie and Marla were fantastic hosts in every sense. The accommodations were top notch, and we had such a great time taking in Martha's Vineyard with a local flare prior to the start of high season.

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.
