We THOROUGHLY ENJOYED EVERYTHING about our stay at the Thorncroft Inn in the Vinyard Haven area, starting with delightful interactions with the inn's owner KARL. Karl is a fascinating, knowledgeable, witty, and in-the-know guy, and was helpful in every way--- and a GREAT breakfast cook! He welcomed us into his home like family, and was eager to please in every...

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...

We have stayed twice at the beautiful Thorncroft Inn and enjoyed it immensely. The location is ideal - it's a pleasant walk into the heart of Vineyard Haven, and the inn itself is in a quiet residential area. Everything was top-notch from the welcome, to the room, to the very delicious and artistically presented breakfast. In addition to the four-poster...

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...

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...

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.
