It was just ok, but over priced. And pushing two single mattresses together to create the illusion of a king bed was really awkward. Also, the garden needs a gardner.

We didn't have a pleasant experience. The host was rude, submissive and paid no attention to us. We were served toast, yogurt and berries for breakfast. She made a pot of coffee. For my first cup, it was only filled a quarter of the way up. Instead of brewing another pot, she told me that was it and couldn't have anymore. Airlines give more coffee than that! Couldn't have cared less that we were staying there. The host was also impossible to get a hold of.

BEWARE don’t ignore the bad reviews, pick somewhere else to stay so you don’t ruin your stay. The entire house smells like mold because the rugs have not been cleaned in 40 years. Our sheets had holes, towels were stained, A/C was 40 yrs old, TV did not work. Owner was too cheap to turn on the ice maker when we turned it on she shut it off. Bed was awful, a cheep styrofoam topper was on the bed to hide how old the mattress was. We lost sleep, it ruined our entire trip. The owner purposely serves the worst breakfast so you go somewhere else. Breakfast is plain yogurt, toast and coffee. Owner could actually get fresh pastries delivered from town like most nice B&Bs but she is too cheep. She will not even use the money you pay her to buy new sheets and towels. Vineyard Haven is a dry town no bars, you can only get alcohol with dinner, stay in Oak Bluffs for Edgartown instead.

Only stay if desperate. And don’t mind a rude lady
We only needed a room for a night that was decently priced. We have a newborn who is literally the best baby that you could possibly take on trips. Doesn’t really cry, sleeps almost through the night. So we looked all over this ended up just being available and 249. Our friends dropped us off, I found keys on the table with my name on it perfect. Then I walked outside told my boyfriend and friends we were all set. Baby is sleeping in his car seat mind you on the front steps In front of the door to go Into the house. ( visuals for this is needed) I turn back around as to see a lady opening up the main door in the house in her bath robe saying “ hi can I help you......” while I have the keys in my hand. I say “ hi my name is Kalin. Then then was confused as to why i was staying here, and we to how long since I had a baby with me apparently she doesn’t like kids unless they are over the age of 7. No where did it state that when I was booking. And then Pointed to my child and called it a “ that with a long pause baby ” and she then rudely asked if I had diapers for him (obviously) I said “yes I even have a bed for him.“ She then said our room was upstairs to the right. She then told me she can only serve us coffee and tea, and yogurt because of a Covid. Size of room fine, even fit our pack n play comfortably in there. THEN my boyfriend was In the showers and I found two spiders on our bedding, that matched the sheets! Then one IN the bed, two more in the room and bathroom.
