Wow - just to start. From arrival - you feel like they have waited for your arrival all day - so the moment you open that front door and take in the lovely first floor living areas....you know this will be a very special experience. The "gals" as I'll call them who run this fine establishment are warm and friendly...

This year was our 25th wedding anniversary. We delayed, considered Europe, attended a wedding in Provincetown and decided the wedding invite was providence telling us to stay close to celebrate our own nuptials. Edgartown is part of our past. My wife chose the Christopher for its ratings. The hotel did not let us down. In fact, our stay at The...

We visited Martha's Vineyard for Thanksgiving with friends. The Christopher has a great location within walking distance to Edgartown's bars, restaurants, and shops. The charm of an inn with the amenities of a modern boutique hotel. King-size bed. Spacious bathroom with big shower. Robes and lots of towels. Homemade breakfast with unique presentations – one morning’s offerings included eggs, bacon,...

My husband and I spent a late October weekend at The Christopher in Edgartown as a belated anniversary celebration. The Inn is located in the historic section of Edgartown in a renovated Victorian House.

My husband and spent the last weekend of October on the Vineyard, celebrating our anniversary. Julie and Marla at The Christopher did everything they could to make our stay extra special -- from giving us a room upgrade, to leaving us special goodies and making dinner reservations, they were the consummate hostesses. The inn is spectacular, decorated with custom fabrics...

My wife and I stayed for a long weekend and it was really the perfect choice. We've stayed other places previously on the island, but now this will be our new home away from home when heading to the Vineyard. Marla and Julie are amazing hosts and made our stay all that much better with their recommendations.
