The Property

In 1923 Edwin Thompson watched the sun setting into vineyard sound from his Menemsha sheep pasture and decided he had as nice a view as one could find anywhere. The Menemsha Inn was open for business.

Since then, the Menemsha Inn and Cottages has grown to cater to the world traveler and world weary alike, all of whom have reaped its restorative magic.

Charming Rooms

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 above the main 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 much more.


There are three different Sea View cottage styles to choose from to suit your travel, bedroom configuration, and family-size needs, including one-bedroom, two-bedroom and two-story cottages.

Vacation Homes

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.
