The stay was most enjoyable. In a quiet Main St. neighborhood; this historic landmark is in a most pristine physical garden setting, & is within walking distance to The Vineyard Haven ferry. The small yet immaculate bedroom(s) & (some) shared baths, are more than adequate, well maintained, with an attention to the needs & comfort of guests as the ultimate...

Glorious time at the historic....perfectly renovated.... 1720 House in Vineyard Haven. Short walk from ferry, we were greeted with hot tea and cookies. Warm and comfortable and great help with navigating the island. Left car on the other side and no problem getting around. Had nearby dinners that were excellent. Attention to detail at The 1720 House was much appreciated....

The 1720 House was a wonderful place to stay. We have been there in summer and recently in winter and never disappointed. The house is lovely with its antique structure but high ceilings and wonderfully restored. The service is attentive and helpful. The beds comfortable and the sheets soft. We love the great copper beech tree in the back of...

We spent a winter weekend on Marthas Vineyard at The 1720 House and loved every minute. The sun shone brightly so it was warm enough to walk along trails and beaches with no crowds. Enough restaurants were open so we ate great food. The B&B served us hot chocolates and brownies and teas in the afternoons. The owner and her...

The 1720 House was just right for our family – and our budget. We loved the feeling of staying in a home that was built in the early 18th Century. And, although this quaint B&B has retained its historic character, it still offers amenities like air conditioning, free wi-fi and modern bathrooms. Perhaps the most convenient feature was the location....

We stayed at the charming 1720 House bed-and-breakfast in the winter, a few days before Christmas. The island was decked out with beautiful holiday lights and was delightfully quiet – none of the traffic or crowded restaurants and beaches of the high season. Our room was warm and cozy, spotlessly clean, and it had a view with a glimpse of...

This was our first trip to the States and picked the 1720 House from the Internet and we were not disappointed. The house is lovely and the rooms clean and our bed very comfortable. Cheryle was very helpful and accommodating and Continental breakfast was delicious, with plenty of choice for cereal, fruit, yogurt etc. Would definitely recommend the 1720 House.

I stay at 1720 two or three times a year, combining business and pleasure. The location can't be beat, a 5 minute walk to the Vineyard Haven ferry (and downtown restaurants and shops), when I don't need to bring my car over and parking when I do. The host and her staff are extremely helpful, really in the know about...
