Modern or traditional? At Nobnocket Boutique Inn, you don’t have to choose. Inspired by the concept of “island luxury with a twist,” the bed-and-breakfast brings together timeless New England comforts and decidedly contemporary details. Interiors showcase pieces by Knoll, Marcel Wanders and Philippe Starck, while rooms stock Gilchrist & Soames London Collection bath amenities; you might visit the resident wild-turkey troupe and then enjoy an old-fashioned game of croquet, or elect to crash in your airy room and play some favorite tunes on its up-to-date Bluetooth music device.
Recently endorsed by The Telegraph Travel, this lovely retreat is all about balancing old and new, classic and current. And it’s also about empowering you to tailor your Martha’s Vineyard escape to your preferences in general – hence its fantastic, convenient Vineyard Haven location. Stay within walking distance of the famed Black Dog Tavern and the neighborhood’s Steamship Authority (where the ferry departs). Take a scenic stroll to the beach, harbor or main shopping street, or a breezy ride to nearby West Tisbury or Edgartown – another of Nobnocket’s thoughtful amenities is a fleet of complimentary bicycles.
Rooms and suites
Accommodations bring together traditional or traditionally inspired comforts, like Gilchrist & Soames London Collection
Vineyard Haven is a charming waterfront neighborhood, chock full of independent shops and home to the historic Capawock Movie Theatre and famed Black Dog Tavern. It’s a ferry stop, with its own steamship authority, and offers a sandy beach and beautiful harbor. Other Vineyard destinations, like West Tisbury and Edgartown, are a short drive or a longer bike ride away – perfect, if you choose to avail yourself of Nobnocket’s complimentary-bicycle amenity. Speaking of the hotel, remain on the boutique base’s 1.5 acres to warm up by a fireplace, relax in the sunroom, play croquet or stroll through well-maintained perennial gardens and woods (with their own wild-turkey troupe).
How to Get There
Probably the best small inn we've ever stayed at. Our room, like the entire inn, was absolutely beautiful and extremely comfortable. Annabelle and Simon, the owners, could not have been kinder or more helpful. The inn is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, but is still only a short walk from Main Street, making it an excellent home base from which to explore the island for first-time visitors like us.
This may have been the nicest experience I’ve ever had staying away from home. First, the Inn is absolutely gorgeous. It is immaculately clean and the common areas are varied, yet so comfortable. Simon and Annabelle (the owners) are just lovely. So welcoming and attentive to their guests. There was always coffee and hot tea available (and I mean good coffee and individual tea pots), snacks, sodas, and water bottles to refill. When asked what we’d like to have with breakfast in a conversation when meeting Simon, we each let him know (there were four of us) and the next morning everything was perfectly delivered - including caffeine free tea. The breakfast experience was something I’ve never seen before. We sat together and runners were places in front of us then our silverware and then our meals which were delicious, hot, fresh and displayed so artistically. Our rooms were extremely comfortable, too. The beds and linens were soft, we had ceiling fans and air conditioners and we stayed in the room with the sitting area because we had some work we needed to meet about which was beautifully appointed and surrounded by windows that could be opened to feel the sea breeze. It could not have been more perfect. Thank you to Simon and Annabelle - we will definitely be back!
Simon and Annabelle have taken their Inn to a level above and beyond. Our experience was wonderful and their attention to detail is unmatched. From the moment you walk in you know you are somewhere special. Your day starts each morning with a breakfast creation that is both unique and delicious. Returning to your room in the evening to find fresh linens and soft music playing and a yummy treat on your night table. The grounds are gorgeous with plenty of leisure space to relax and let yourself go. The hosts have plenty of activity recommendations to help get the most out of your MV stay. This Inn definitely gets 5 stars on all categories. Thanks again Simon and Annabelle, we will definitely be back.
Tucked in a quiet neighborhood near the Vineyard Haven ferry is this beautiful boutique inn. Absolutely stunning renovation with a clean, crisp feel. Simon and Annabel are perfect hosts. We had the smallest room but were perfectly comfortable. We chose to walk from the ferry but I would recommend a cab or uber as it’s uphill. Vineyard Haven itself doesn’t have much to offer in our opinion but it’s a quick 15 - 20 minute uber (cabs really pretty grungy in Martha’s Vineyard - we preferred uber xl) to Edgartown that had the best shopping and dining. Oak Bluff is a quick 10 - 15 uber that touts great restaurants but we felt a bit too arcade/boardwalk honky-tonk for us. One of the benefits of the Nobnocket is you are out of the crush of people in either Edgartown or Oak Bluff and it’s very relaxing. Well worth the price to stay here!
Simon and Annabel were most gracious. The Nobnocket is just perfect. Clean, neat as a pin and the food was fabulous. Simon and Annabel do it right from the time you walk in the door until the time you leave you're treated special. From a perfect breakfast in the morning to the turn down service at night and the treats left on your night stand everything is done right. My wife was so pleased and told me this was the nicest place she has ever stayed and she has stayed at some nice places like Trump Tower, Chicago, the Drake in Chicago, places in San Diego, Las Vegas and many bed and Breakfast locations. I hold Simopn and Annabel in high regard and highly recommend the Nobnocket. - Tom and Diana Fox
