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
The Nobnocket Boutique Inn exceeded all our expectations. From the moment we walked in I knew we could have not made a better choice on where to stay at Martha's Vineyard. The whole place smelled beautifully, it had a comforting and inviting feeling, and the owners Simon and Annabelle were absolutely great hosts! It's those little thoughtful touches that made the stay unforgettable (I won't reveal them not to ruin the pleasant surprise ;-) ). Very clean and cozy room, thoughtfully decorated and with everything you need. The owners have been living in the area for a long time so they are a great resource when deciding on what to do or where to eat. The location of the hotel is great, just a short walk from the Main Street of Vineyard Haven. They even have bicycles and umbrellas in case you need them. I wish there was a Nobnocket Boutique Inn anywhere I travel.
We had a lovely stay at Nobnocket. Rather like being a house guest in the smart, comfortable house of good friends. Add a great, quiet location, probably the most comfortable hotel beds we’ve tried and competitive prices and this is a Vineyard gem.
We recently stayed at the Inn to celebrate a milestone birthday. The Inn is absolutely beautiful as was the room. Superb attention to detail all around. The hospitality provided by our hosts Anabelle and Simon was beyond expectation. Dinner and activity suggestions were so on point we were thrilled. We truly felt like we were visiting friends in their home.
We will return for sure!
We loved this hidden gem tucked away in a quiet neighbor in Vineyard Haven. The room was wonderful - simple, clean, and very comfortable. the shower was spacious. The downstairs area has a wonderful fireplace for cool evenings (we were there in October) and plenty of room to play a game or relax with a hot drink. The coffee is a blend from Chilmark (upisland) and is delicious, but there are plenty of other teas and cold drinks as well. When we first arrived, we enjoyed a drink with Annabelle on the deck and later explored an outside area with lounge chairs and a fire pit. It is the perfect place to launch your island adventures from or just sit back and relax.
My wife and I stayed at the Nobnocket Boutique Inn for our honeymoon last May. It was our first trip to Martha’s Vineyard and we chose the Nobnocket because of the glowing reviews and the beautiful online pictures. We were not disappointed. This place is nothing short of amazing! Annabelle and Simon were gracious and friendly. The Inn was beautifully decorated and conveniently located. A delicious breakfast was brought into our lovely room every morning. What more can I say? It was a wonderful experience and we’ll definitely be back!
