Founded in 1923 the Menemsha Inn and Cottages is the quintessential Martha’s Vineyard hideaway. Located in the 300 year-old fishing village of Menemsha, the inn is nestled on 16 acres of flowering gardens and green fields which roll westward towards a sweeping vista of the waters of Menemsha Bight. Luxurious yet laid-back, guests can stay in one of 15 luxury rooms within the Carriage House or the Tea House, or they can choose the unique Mainstay suite. Breathtaking ocean views or picturesque garden views are yours to enjoy, along with the comforts of king-sized beds, spacious living rooms, flat screen televisions and much much more.
