“What A Lovely Surprise”
Visiting friends up island who recommended this lovely inn. From the moment we arrived until the time we checked out, my husband and I were immersed in the special vibe that is Menemsha. At check in, we were greeted by the gracious and friendly Virginia who was eager to acclimate us to our surroundings and start us on our much anticipated get away. We stayed in the Carriage House Suite #5, a lovely bright, white room with blue accented furniture and upholstery. Not fancy. Very clean, comfortable, quiet. And then there was the deck. So private. Should be called the second room. Morning paper, reflection, coffee, post nap stretch, pre sunset wine and cheese. All the while looking over the gorgeous grounds and Menemsha Harbor. Just absolute peace. Breakfast was just a short woodsy trail walk away at the sister Beach Plum Inn. Then an easy hike to the beach or walk to the quaint village for fresh fish, shopping and dining. I'm too used to too much when it comes to accommodations. Menemsha Inn caught me by lovely surprise. Cannot wait to come back.
