In 1923, Edwin Thompson was standing in his Menemsha sheep pasture, watching the sun set across Massachuset’s Vineyard Sound. As the final light of day painted orange across the sky and cast the shoreline of Martha’s Vineyard into shadow, Edwin judged his view to be as beautiful a view one could find anywhere. That moment marked the beginning of what would become the Menemsha Inn.
Since that day in 1923, the Menemsha Inn and Cottages have grown to cater to the world-traveler and the world-weary alike, all of whom have reaped in its restorative magic.
Guests can stay in 1 of 15 luxury rooms within the Carriage or Tea Houses, or they may also choose the unique Mainstay Suite above the Inn’s reception area. 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 far more.
There are three different Sea View cottage rentals to choose from to suit your travel, bedroom configuration, and family-size needs. These include our one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and two-story cottages.
Visitors to Menemsha Inn and Cottages may also choose from several vacation rentals. From rustic cottages to spacious and modern houses, we have the perfect house to make your vacation in Martha’s Vineyard one to remember forever.
