We are the new owners of the property and 2019 and this marks our first season as innkeepers on Marthas Vineyard.  We have been summer residents for decades and when we decided to take the plunge into running our own B&B to welcome guests to the island and community we love.  We inherited a wonderful legacy from the former owners and current neighbors, Paul and Jane.   Our goal is to maintain the natural victorian charm while updating the lobby, living room, breakfast bar and bedrooms.  We appreciate all guest feedback to create your island home away from home.
