We just finished an amazing stay at Mansion house. Our rooms were light and spacious, extremely clean, with relaxing balconies outside. The beds and pillows were heavenly. Service was excellent all around, very accommodating and helpful and friendly, without being in your way. The location was perfect, right in the center of cute Vineyard Haven. And what put it over the top for me was the incredible gym and pool, which were included for free as part of your stay, classes included. The pool was a very long indoor lap pool with some kind of minerals instead of chlorine so that it didn't bother your eyes. Hot tub, saunas, they have it all. Large number of aerobic and muscular machines, even ping pong. Very impressive.
There were only two things that I thought could be better: the breakfasts and the wifi. The breakfasts had a small and variable offering. They would have delicious banana bread, but if you came 45 minutes later, they were out, replacing it with medium muffins. Amazing yogurt, but if you weren't there at exactly the right time, they were gone, replaced by an extremely thin selection of cereal (e.g. only cheerios). It was still fine, but I was surprised that the breakfasts didn't quite measure up to all the other small details of the experience that were so perfectly planned and delightfully presented. And as for the wifi, it was free (great) but flakey -- as I tried to submit this review, for instance, it never made it through and I had to repost later.
Overall, an exceptional stay, I look forward to returning again!
