Attleboro House
Ranked #14 of 15 Oak Bluffs B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 August 2014

The Attleboro House is in a central location in OB. It is walking distance from the ferry so need for a car. You could walk it if you don’t over pack and bus and taxi the island the remainder of your visit. Upon walking up to the front door you are greeted by a big wrap around porch with several rocking chairs and a wooden sign The Attleboro House. One night during my visit I sat on the porch for hours watching the boats coming in and out, all the tourists at the restaurants across the way and a beautiful Vineyard sunset while sipping wine. It is a simple place for those who enjoy simple pleasures. The main street of Circuit Ave is a hop and skip away and there is a great breakfast place Biscuits a minute walk away. The common area of the property is adorned in white wicker chairs and a few tourist magazines and brochures with a TV that is dated but you’re on island and really who turns on a tv anyway when you have such breathtaking scenery. Estelle is the inn keeper she is an 80 something year old woman who is still running the house basically on her own, her daughter helps out with housekeeping. You will find her in early evening on the back side of the porch in her swinging chair. Friendly, warm, inviting and always helpful. I had room 11 and couldn’t of been more pleased. I had a private porch and from lying in bed I could see the harbor. The room included two fans and no AC. I didn’t use either the ocean breeze did the job in the evenings. The rooms themselves are by no means modern but minimalist. The towels and bedding clean. No creepy crawlers anywhere. The shared bathroom was not once a hindrance on my 6 night stay. They were always clean and a newer shower head was in place. I would highly recommend The Attleboro House because the price is right, location perfect and has true historic island charm. My only dislike was I didn’t have another 6 nights.

Room Tip: Room 11 isn't right smack in the front of the builiding like one other room with a porch is but...

This summer will be my 4th staying at the Attleboro House. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Rooms and bathrooms are always neat and clean. The first two floors have a lovely wrap around porch complete with rocking chairs. There are no TV's in the rooms but why would you need one when beautiful Oak Bluffs Harbor is your view? Estelle is the sweetest lady and I look forward to sitting on the porch and chatting with her.

Room Tip: Bring a small cooler, there is a great grocery store a short walk away, you can keep some breakfast...

This no frills bed and breakfast hotel is charming and overlooks the harbor in Oak Bluffs. Estelle, the owner adds to the irresistible charm of your stay on this unique historically registered hotel.

Approaching this quaint isle from the water is not a speedy trip, yet I LOVE my trip out Montauk which takes me here. I sit topside watch the stars, breathe in salty air...As the whalers did, centuries ago.
However, my boat drives in the wee hours if the morning. Where do I go? To the snug harbor of this large, Victorian home. Key left on desk, I tiptoe to my cozy,shabby chic room. A view of the harbor, my own little porch and rocking chair makes me immediately at home. A little less than the posh offerings on island, not fancy but homey. The grandmotherly proprietress completes the welcoming reception. Great location!!! P

Beautiful spot! Busy but everything really was perfect. People at the inn were so nice and unbelievably helpful. Loved every moment here and will be back next summer for another week
Park corners got awesome drinks and food. Saltwater in VH is unbelievable and this place combined made everything super special. Best birthday ever. Thanks guys

My husband and I have stayed here several times and we always look forward to our next visit!
No it's not a Sherton or Raddisson, but it is 100% vintage Matha's Vineyard!
This charming old victorian sits up on a hill overlooking the harbor.
We even had a private balcony to watch the boats come and go.
