Like many island inns, this building was originally the home of a whaling captain. It was constructed in 1860 and still feels, in many ways, like a private residence. Guests lounge in the courtyard and well-appointed garden, and enjoy afternoon tea and/or cocktails served on the terrace or in the garden. The atmosphere is luxurious and unquestionably adult. Brass lamps, mahogany furnishings, hand-carved four-poster beds ... no expense has been spared in the beautiful selection of pieces that adorn each room. Continental breakfast is included. The inn enjoys proximity to the Edgartown Art Gallery, lovely shops, restaurants and a bike path.
