“Perfect ocean front getaway”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

We loved every moment of our stay in this elegant B&B! Howard is a wonderful resource, who has found the ideal balance between being helpful, friendly and informative without being intrusive. The rooms were spotless, and the breakfast was a gourmet start to the day. There were so many thoughtful details which added to our comfort and pleasure, including a guest kitchen with complementary beverages, and plenty of information regarding area attractions (ranging from beachfront relaxing to sightseeing to hiking/biking). We are already looking forward to a future visit!

Room Tip: Pick a room with an ocean view terrace!

We stayed at this impeccably clean inn in mid- August, and my husband and I loved it! The view from our room was the ocean, and it was spectacular. Howard was incredibly helpful, suggesting restaurants and where to play golf, and we couldn't have asked for a more relaxing place. I really felt like it was my home since anything we could need was provided (water and sodas in fridge, toiletries, beach towels). Definitely recommend this inn.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the ocean.

We stayed 5 nights at the Inn On The Sound as part of our tour around New England staying mainly in inns. We chose it primarily due to the good reviews on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. The inn is absolutely spotless and beautifully kept with everything positioned just so. Our room was Deer Pond which was a garden room rather than ocean facing which we knew when we booked it. It was very homely with a spotless bathroom and a comfortable if quite firm double bed. Breakfast was superb with a different hot dish each day which were all amazing or you could have continental. As well as all the other things to do in the area like whale watching (great day out) it took just 3 minutes to walk to the beach from the inn, which also supplied free beach chairs and towels. Howard and his team should be very proud of their superb inn.

This was our first time to this area (family vacation). We just spent 3 wonderful nights at Inn on the Sound after a 4 day visit to Boston! What a great way to end our vacation! We were greeted by Howard, who was extremely friendly and helpful. We were a bit early, so Howard gave us discount coupons for the Ferry to Martha's Vineyard, where we spent our first day. When we checked into our rooms, we found they were extremely inviting and clean. Everything that you could possibly need was there for us (toiletries, beach towels, beach chairs) We had harbor views and could see Martha's Vineyard from our room - which was extremely wonderful as Saturday evening we were able to sit on our deck and watch the fireworks display across the bay! Each morning started with a wonderful breakfast - served by Howard and Whitney! Howard and Whitney offered wonderful suggestions and directions to many of the sites that we wanted to visit. There was always tea, fruit and wonderful homemade biscotti on the counter, and cold water and soda in the fridge for our enjoyment! We were also able to use the fridge for any personal items! We truly were made to feel special and pampered! We highly recommend Inn on the Sound!!! Thank you to Howard for making us feel so "special"!

Room Tip: Ask for a Bay View! You could see Martha's Vineyard from those rooms!

Just spent three nights at Inn on the Sound and I can sum up our experience in one word: Wonderful! My husband and I aren't B&B aficionados but we do know quality, hospitality and kindness when we see it and Howard and his staff delivered all three in spades! From the unbeatable location (near Martha's Vineyard ferry, nice beach and walkable to downtown), to the breath-taking view of the Sound and Martha's Vineyard, to the excellent and generously prepared food, to the surprisingly well-thought out amenities (no need to bring your own beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels or even beach bag), to the courteous and thorough housekeeping, to the pristinely cared for and elegantly but comfortably furnished rooms... this place has it all. I will definitely recommend it to my friends. Check it out for yourself! ... Kate

Room Tip: We didn't get a room with a view as they were all booked up. However, our room was a little less...

Nice location on the ocean. Agree with most of what the prior reviews stated. A couple issues. The bathroom was extremely small especially for my husband and the room was too. For 323$ we expected more space although the view was great. When making the reservation the Innkeeper was a bit gruff and I was put off almost to the point of not staying there. I understand it's the summer season and busy but he was almost rude. When we met him in person he was friendly. Although it was a pleasant stay I would probably not be back.

While we are gratified that mvine's stay was pleasant, it was short of our goal that her visit with us be extraordinary. 'Gruff' and 'rude' will always be absent from our B&B; we are sorry for whatever caused the perception. We are grateful to mvine for sharing her observations; they will serve as motivation to improve all our guests' experiences at Inn on the Sound.

An incredible inn with outrageous water views. Howard and Whitney your innkeepers are a wealth of information and bend over backwards to be sure your stay is pleasant. Can you say,"no stress?" This inn is tranquil and spotless with a great beach right across the street. Did I mention the delicious stuffed French toast?
I will be back!!!!
