We just returned from a weekend at the Duck Inn. This was our first visit to Marthas Vineyard, heck, it was our first north of Tennessee (Florida natives).
We we very impressed with the rustic charm of the Duck Inn. We stayed in two of the three rooms in the second floor, both facing the beach. The rooms were very clean, and had a country charm. My wife enjoyed the claw-foot tub in our bathroom. I enjoyed the balcony that overlooked the beach and lighthouse. We left the windows open and enjoyed the cool breeze and the sound of the surf at night.
In the morning, Virginia made us a great breakfast. We tried the omelettes, and the wifes favorite was the portugese French Toast. The fruits and toast were good too. The orange/grapefruit juice was fresh squeezed by our lively host Virginia.
I thought the beach might be a little too far to walk, but the wooded path was very nice. Wildflowers and notive foliage were interesting. It took us less than 5 minutes to walk down to the beach. We walked north to the cliffs and balanced rocks.
The next morning, we awoke to find 3 large whitetail deer munching on a few of the trees just below our balcony. They didn't seem bothered by us. My niece walked right up to a rabbit, that had different colored eyes.
I can't say enough about the place. The atmosphere is what really struck me about the Duck Inn. It was laid-back. I just wished we would have spent more time at the Duck Inn instead of driviing around the Vineyard. I would highly recommend this B+B if you're into casual, country living.
