    My husband and I stayed for one night, in the Crow's Nest room, and I wish we had stayed another couple of days. If you are planning to visit Vinalhaven, you should read other reviews so you have an idea of what to expect here....More

    We were delighted by this thoughtful and honest review and hope to see these folks again. We do have a suite, however. The Harbormaster's Berth is a lovely waterfront suite that can be fully appreciated on our web site.

    It has been a great experience to be at the Vinalhaven. Nice to stay at Tidewater motel, quiet, comfortable. All you hear is the water and the wind sound. I would visit this place again. I highly recommend it.

    Thanks, Ron, for your kind review - the two restaurants you mentioned are really outstanding. Next time, you'll have to stay again on nights when you can enjoy them as well. Hope to see you soon!

    Motel is right in village - most rooms face the water. Motel rents bikes, kayaks, even cars to guests and the information binder in the room was very up to date and chock full of helpful info. Many rooms have kitchen facilities so you can...More
