Located on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, this Inn is perfect for families looking for a quiet place to vacation. A whaler built it two hundred years ago. Families can take a five-minute walk to the beach, or they can hike and explore the island. There are multiple places to rent bikes and the inn has a collection of children’s books and toys. Guestrooms appropriate for families are the Deck Room West with a king size and single bed and the First Floor Suite with a queen sized bed and a double sofa bed. Both guestrooms have full bathrooms and refrigerators. The Deck Room West has a deck with a view of the ocean and lighthouse.

I reserved a room for a night but when I got there in the early evening as planned, there was no sign of life - only leftover breakfast dishes still on the table, old coffee in the pot, heat on, general disarray, but nobody home, and no indicator of where I was to stay, or response from the caretaker until hours later when I got a message that she had lost her phone. The friendly owner was out of town for the season and did respond to my texts more quickly, but with little cell on that side of the island, I didn't get the message until it was too late, and had driven back to the other side of the island to find a place to stay before dark. On further investigation, it seems that the property is up for sale - I would jump at the chance to own such a beautiful place if I could! It is in a completely idyllic location - quiet, away from everything, less than a mile from the Gayhead cliffs, great spot for watching the sunset, and feels wonderfully 'old Vineyard' - funky, cozy, and well loved. But I think the owner is ready for new adventures, and the caretaker doesn't really seem to 'care'.
Six of us rented the Duck inn for a week for a wedding.
