We went here for a 30th wedding anniversary last year and were sorely disappointed. The location is great with a short hike to the ocean and the cliffs and very near to the lighthouse. However the house is very close to being a dump. The bathroom was moldy and the in room fridge was rusting. I would not be surprised... More

Our first trip to the Vineyard, Elise, the owner/host at Duck Inn was especially helpful and accommodating from the beginning/planning of our trip to the end. Because I had business nearby, we wanted to stay in Aquinnah, the less inhabited and developed part of the Vineyard. The Duck Inn is a trip back in time--like sleeping on grandparents' quilts in...

My husband and I made last minute plans to go to the Vineyard and I spoke with Elise late on Friday to arrive Saturday. She was very nice and easy to talk to. We stayed in the first floor of the Inn which is actually a walkout basement that has been renovated. Soooo Cool!!!. The hot tub and a swing... More

I have never been to a more beautiful inn. Nor have I ever seen nature's beauty quite like what surround the Duck Inn. My room was charming and could look out on 2 sides of the field and ocean.

Other reviewers have more than adequately described this delightful inn and the excellent care taken by Elise in serving her guests. My husband and I stayed in the West U room with a deck facing the ocean and a view of the lighthouse which is well worth reserving. We booked a three night stay the third week of September early...

Our family attended a wedding in the Aquinnah section of the Vineyard and were fortunate to find the Duck Inn which was close by. The positives are the proximity to a good beach ( 10 minute walk) which extends around the tip of the island and allows for long calm walks. There is a nude beach as part of that... More

I stayed 2 nights at the Duck Inn, having prepaid the total amount. I chose what I thought was a 1 bedroom suite on the first floor, which is stated on the website.

Elise has five spaces in her charming hilltop barn overlooking the Aquinnah lighthouse, furnished with vintage and duck-themed appliances and anything else that takes her eye. It all works, and you find yourself settling into an unselfconscious sort of comfort rare in the hospitality world. This is an inn with a sense of humor run by an innkeeper who is... More

We stayed in the Duck Inn this summer for three days. It was fantastic. It has a walk to a beautiful Aquinnah beach, excellent breakfast, great co-habitants and a beautiful setting and interior. The duck themed everything is a hoot, er, quack. We will definitely be going back next year.
