Martha's Vineyard is a great place to visit, it is very relaxing and has a pace about it that makes you slow down and smell the roses. The 1720 House helps with this. I had the Blue Room booked at $175.00 per night. I wasn't able to get to Martha's Vineyard till 10.30 p.m from New York, I advised Abbey of this and there was no issue as she said that she would leave the key and directions to my room at the front door. The room was huge and homely and the queen bed very comfortable for a good night sleep. I had to share a bathroom with the Brown Room, but at no time was there any hassles with this, it felt like a private bathroom.
The 1720 House oozes charm with its beautiful interior and gardens. This is topped off with the house showing its age with the slight dip in the stairs has you go up to your bedroom and as you walk around.
The 1720 House is just up the street from the Falmouth Ferry Terminal, a 5 minute walk. If you are coming from New York you will have to get a taxis of which there are many when you arrive at Oak Bluff. The taxis ride cost $10.00.
On getting up for breakfast (08.30-09.30) you are met with a selection of cereals, breads, fresh fruits, yogurts. There is a great breakfast table or if the weather is fine you can have your breakfast outside in the garden. The New York Times or the Boston Globe are there for your reading. It can take time after this to get motivated to leave for the day's activities as it is very tempting to relax in the garden and enjoy the quiet.
Getting around Martha's Vineyard without a car is easy with many places renting bicycles, and mopeds. If these modes of travel don't suit there is a great bus service which can get you from one side of the island to the other.
