Reviewed 26 August 2014

One of the best Bed and Breakfast - in a great location near main street, stores, restaurants and the waterfront. Great breakfast served a nice backyard space with well trained staff. The owners go out of their way to help guests with their plans for the day, and also provide chairs, umbrellas and towels for beachgoers.

Room Tip: Both of the room with 2 beds are on the first floor, and room number 1 faces the street. If you are...

The Victorian Inn is within walking distance to everything in Edgartown. The staff is very attentive and the breakfast rivals any of the best restaurants anywhere. If you are heading to the beach they will supply chairs, umbrellas, towels and just about anything you might need. All the rooms are beautifully decorated. We opted for the less expensive room with the "full" sized bed with canopy. Next time we would probably upgrade to a room with the "queen" sized bed for a little extra room.

We recently spent 4 nights at the Victorian Inn in Edgartown. It was one of the best B&B's we've been too. We chose the room with a large covered porch and it was a good choice (room 7). One day we had heavy rain, so we were able to enjoy our porch (the balconies on some of the other rooms couldn't have been used in the rain). The owners and staff were very helpful and nice. The location was great, we could walk everywhere in Edgartown.
The inn is pretty expensive (not unusual for Edgartown), but I was celebrating my birthday and wanted a special place. The rate includes a nice breakfast, afternoon lemonade, ice tea and cookies, flowers and sherry in the room, and use of beach towels and chairs.
There were a several repeat visitors during the time we stayed there.

Room Tip: We loved room 7 on the second floor (good sized room with queen bed and large covered porch). We di...

My husband and I spend almost every July 4th at this inn. We love it. The rooms and service are consistant and we've never had a bad experience. The location couldn't be better. You can walk to everything in Edgartown. If you're bringing a car onto the island, you get a parking spot at the Inn. (Advise them in advance.) That is just the frosting on the cake! Parking is difficult at best here. I'm so picky and I'm so happy to have found this inn. It always meets my expectations. Note that they do not accept pets or children under 9 (I believe). The Inn is best suited for couples or adults. No phones or TV's.

We wanted to return to our honeymoon town for our 20th anniversary, and since the B&B we had stayed at was no longer in business, a friend recommended the Victorian Inn among others. Walking distance to the center of town was required. When I read the reviews, saw the beauty of the rooms and then the "splurge factor" -- our own large porch -- I called for a reservation. We were not disappointed. Our stay was relaxed, totally comfortable, and made even easier by our hosts' knowledge of the community and commitment to service. At Stephen's suggestion, we booked the local conservancy's tour of Chappaquidick. We got a historical and ecological education that was also great fun! We rented bikes, went to South Beach, drove around the Island, and dined in great style. The Victorian's breakfasts were fresh, a bit decadent, and delicious. To help us celebrate, the Caliris gave us a bottle of champagne to enjoy on our porch. All in all, a memorable anniversary. We won't wait another 20 years....

Room Tip: A room with a porch is definitely worth the splurge.

The Victorian Inn is centrally located downtown Edgartown. We walked everywhere and rode our bikes to other Vineyard locations. Our room was beautifully decorated and had two outside balconies that overlooked the town and the bay. The rooms were spotless and the service was excellent. Out host, Steve and Karyn, were always there to answer questions or to provide suggestions on what to do or where to dine. Karyn prepared excellent breakfasts and Steve was our morning entertainment .

Room Tip: We liked the third floor with a balcony for views of the town and bay .
