“"One of the Best B&Bs I Have Ever Stayed At!"”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

Having stayed at some of the best B&Bs in the world, I'm somewhat picky about the accommodations that I select. Hob Knob surpassed my expectations! An exceedingly charming 1800's B&B in the heart of what is arguably the best town on Martha's Vineyard (Edgartown), Hob Knob provides the highest quality in accommodations for the most discerning traveler. From the luxurious linens to the homemade breakfast that is served each morning in one of the dining rooms, on the beautiful outdoor patio (suggested) or in your room, every detail is looked after! Afternoon tea is served daily with homemade scones and is a perfect way to relax and unwind after the day. Massage, bikes, fishing and boat rentals are all available to guests. The staff is always available and is extremely knowledgable about the island and all of its activities. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back!

Extremely charming B&B in the heart of Edgartown (Main Street!). The bed was super comfortable with linens, pillows and duvets of the highest quality. Breakfast made to order and served in the very quaint dining room or outdoor patio (and of course breakfast can be ordered in the room but honestly, the dining room is so charming that I would recommend this); tea is served daily with scones and sandwiches. The staff was very friendly, helpful and courteous. The inn's owner is always about and very knowledgeable about the island and activities; the Hob Knob also has its own boat which can be chartered for fishing or sunset cruises; bikes are also on hand just outside the front door; and you can also have a massage! In brief, a B&B that offers amenities beyond a B&B! I recommend it highly!

A very cute spot but we thought over-priced for the size of the room (we have stayed in several places in Edgartown). The bathroom was VERY small. The air conditioning was controlled from the front desk so the room seemed too warm much of the time. The beautiful porch has the constant din of big trucks going by. The breakfast that comes with the price of the room was just okay. I have a pet peeve for pricey inns that nickel/dime you by charging $7.00 for a bottle of water in the room, don't want to change the sheets or give you fresh towels and toiletries (shampoo & conditioner) all in the name of being "eco-friendly" and charge you to rent bikes. The "noise" device in the room was hysterical. We enjoyed the stay but will not go back.

From the ferry, we biked to Hob Knob Inn with only our backpacks of bare basics. However, we ended up having a grand & luxurious time at this B&B because it is top quality, great service, yummy homemade breakfast & afternoon tea & tasteful, classy decor throughout. Anthony, Scott & staff were so knowledgeable about where to eat & bike....always helpful & professional! There is a book of menus of their recommended restaurants in the sitting room too. They also have a great wrap-around veranda to relax in. It is a beautiful little inn. We highly recommend to anyone without little kids.

A truly outstanding small lodge, beautifully decorated throughout, just a short walk to the shopping area and restaurants.
Offering great breakfasts ( freshly cooked to order ), afternoon tea with home baked cakes and biscuits, tea and coffee all day, plenty of casual areas to relax in, and delightful rooms .

We came for our nephew's HS graduation, and this was a great choice; quiet and beautifully decorated rooms with an easy walk into town. The staff was friendly, especially those serving breakfast (excellent scones too!).
A couple of things why Im not giving this 5 stars considering the price of the room. First, it took us a moment to figure out they had a white noise device that we turned off and realized why it was on; you could easily hear the conversation of the other guests through the door adjoining our rooms. But they were quiet, as we tried to be as well. We understand this is an older building and some noise can be expected, the solution just seemed like an odd choice.
Second the toilet continued to run during the night. I finally had to take the lid off and make a small adjustment for it to stop.
Lastly, it would have been nice if the bikes were offered as an amenity rather then for rent. Especially 3 miles in to our 5 mile ride to my brother's home the chain broke. Luckily my nephew picked us up and my brother was able to fix the chain for our ride back. He said it wasn't adjusted correctly in the first place.
In fairness to the management, none of these issues we brought to their attention, as it was just quicker and easier to handle ourselves. But at these rates, just a few things that should be routinely checked and maintained before arrival of guests.

We stayed two night with friends for a wedding. Quiet, lovely home. Great porches. Bikes to rent. Friendly staff and great breakfast. Intimate and relaxing. We would stay again in a heartbeat. It is pricey. But we got value. Five minute walk to harbor, shops and restaurants.
