We are extremely dismayed to hear of your disappointing experience while staying with us. We completely understand your frustration in regards to the issues with the credit cards being used and we do apologize for the inconvenience and for our mishandling of the situation–the interactions you describe do not meet the level of customer service that we hold ourselves to. Many guests have raved about our signature small-plates breakfast, as well as our cold brew coffee selection, but we understand that it’s not for everyone. It’s possible that one of our larger rooms may have better suited you both and we would be thrilled if you would give us another try next season– we’d love to have the opportunity to show you just how wonderful a stay with us can be.

Allison runs this little gem with the friendly engagement of a B&B but the luxury of a boutique hotel. From the lovely breakfast and warm cookies to recommendations throughout Edgartown you will have a great time - and the beds are super cozy so you’ll be well rested!

We were there off-season, so it was quiet. The hotel is in charming Edgartown, beautifully decorated, with great public spaces indoor and out on a small scale. The bed was very comfortable (great linens) and the breakfast was outstanding. There were much-appreciated personal
