We stayed at Mansion House last week, a three-night stay, and were enchanted. Our welcome was warm and genuine, our over sized room was spotless, well appointed and comfortable and the hospitality was just about perfect—not cloying—but sincere and endured throughout the four days and three nights. From the strong WiFi connection, incredibly comfortable bed, sumptuous linens and towels, superb amenities and impeccable housekeeping, we were charmed. Since we were up and out before 8am each morning, we had no opportunity to indulge in the complimentary breakfast buffet, but the strategic location on Main Street provided several spots for early morning coffee, a wide selection of dining options, including the wonderful on-site Zephrus restaurant (where breakfast is served). One of the absolute highlights was spending early mornings and evenings on the heavenly rooftop Cupola, overlooking all of Vineyard Haven harbor and the downtown area. This is an ideal spot for photography, plein air painting, sun bathing (as it is well accoutered with lounges, table and seating), reading, socializing or doing just about anything with an eye-popping backdrop of Vineyard Haven in all its glory.
In addition to being located at the head of Vineyard Haven's Main Street, which is chock full of great boutiques, stores and provisioning stops, the Mansion House is ideally located one block from the Steamship ferry dock and theMartha's Vineyard Chamber office, where maps, good advice, brochures and all sorts of great information are readily available.
At Mansion House, guests also have the opportunity to utilize the on-site health club, which is not tremendous, but very adequate and well-equipped. There is also an on-site Spa (leased out to an operator). While we were there, finishing touches on several new first-floor dog-friendly rooms and suites were being completed. In addition to everything foregoing, the Mansion House also provides nearby complimentary, off-street parking, unheard of these days.
The Mansion House is the perfect lodging option, whether for business or pleasure, for all seasons and we read about its quiet season specials, which seemed well priced enough to motivate an "other season" visit to the Vineyard. We felt pampered and well looked after by the front desk and housekeeping staff and also had the opportunity to visit with the owners, who were quite visible and engaged in the operations (but not so much so that they could not take the time to make an already warm welcome even warmer and more personal).
We loved our visit here and highly recommend Mansion House for every kind of Vineyard visit, whether business, wedding, leisure, romantic or otherwise. I cannot think of anything the staff or owners could possibly have done to improve upon our perfect Martha's Vineyard getaway!
