We visited Martha's Vineyard for Thanksgiving with friends. The Christopher has a great location within walking distance to Edgartown's bars, restaurants, and shops. The charm of an inn with the amenities of a modern boutique hotel. King-size bed. Spacious bathroom with big shower. Robes and lots of towels. Homemade breakfast with unique presentations – one morning’s offerings included eggs, bacon,... More

Everything about this hotel is lovely, the gorgeous room, comfy bed, tasty and thoughtful breakfast, communal space. I was very sad to leave, it was one of my favourite hotels I have stayed in during our many trips in the US. Thank you!!!!

My husband and spent the last weekend of October on the Vineyard, celebrating our anniversary. Julie and Marla at The Christopher did everything they could to make our stay extra special -- from giving us a room upgrade, to leaving us special goodies and making dinner reservations, they were the consummate hostesses. The inn is spectacular, decorated with custom fabrics... More

My wife and I stayed for a long weekend and it was really the perfect choice. We've stayed other places previously on the island, but now this will be our new home away from home when heading to the Vineyard. Marla and Julie are amazing hosts and made our stay all that much better with their recommendations.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Christopher for our 10 year anniversary and wanted to share what a fantastic experience we had.

Really cool boutique inn close to everything in town. Located a half block off the main drag with all the shopping and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and made some great recommendations, including the Port Hunter for dinner. The "King" rooms are a little small, but we didn't spend a lot of time in the room. The private courtyard... More
