I booked the Thorncroft Inn as a long birthday (and recent engagement) weekend getaway present for my guy. As anyone familiar with Martha's Vineyard knows, a lot of shops and restaurants start closing down by mid-November, so things are relatively quiet. Karl and Lynn turned what would have been a nice time to one of our favorite trips (and we...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 22 March 2016

I've travelled a lot over many years. I've never stayed anywhere quite as exceptional in its class as the Thorncroft Inn. Under promise & Over deliver must be their motto. Before arriving Karl Buder was very proactive in contacting us and not only answering our questions but suggesting things we hadn't thought of. Nothing seems too much trouble for him...

We loved the room. It was very sweet and cozy with comfortable bed and chairs. The breakfast was a feast with options available upon request. The innkeeper was very good at advising/recommending tour possibilities. On his recommendation we were able to tour not just Vineyard Haven, but the entire island with an understanding of where to go and what to...

We stayed at the Thorncroft for a week to celebrate our 30th anniversary and could not have been more pleased. Karl and Lynn are in the perfect business. It's easy to tell when your among owners the love people. We enjoyed breakfast every morning with Karl and Lynn. The food was awesome every day. It was actually exciting to see...

Enjoyed three days at Thorncroft Inn. Karl and Lynn and the quintessential hosts! Breakfast is out of sight, and the added directions and tips on local events, shopping, restaurants really helped us enjoy Marthas Vineyard area to the fullest. You'll love this great location and Vineyard Haven area.

We love this Inn and the lovely couple who run it, Karl and Lynn. We spent our honeymoon there ten years ago, and enjoyed an anniversary weekend there recently. It is as beautifully kept and spotless as ever, with careful attention to details such as the fireplace ready to light, personalized directions for the restaurants they booked for us and...

I had read the reviews of the Inn before booking our weekend. Between the information on the website, and speaking with Karl and Lynn, we knew this was the place. The FIVE STAR reviews are completely accurate. Accommodations, Location, Breakfast, Hospitality, and Amenities could not have been better. The Inn & rooms were impeccable, and the staff were as friendly...

The highest praise to Innkeepers, Karl and Lynn for making sure we had the perfect vacation. From the lovely room (with great hot tub!) to the delicious daily breakfasts, and great restaurant recommendations- this all added up to a wonderful trip to "the Vineyard." The warm hospitality, made us feel like we were visiting old friends. Special mention to our...
