We stayed 3 nights in the King deluxe room on 3rd floor. We loved it. Julia and Marla were great and helpful with my tons of questions. :). This location is the best, you are are close to town but it felt like a quiet little street. Beautiful area - cannot wait to return!

We've stayed at several very nice places on the Vineyard over the years but after our visit Columbus Day weekend, The Christopher really stands out. In fact, I've never written a review before. Juliana and Marla run the place and because of how they do it, it felt like a little bit of home, and that's something I haven't experienced... More

We stayed at The Christopher on our honeymoon, and could not have been happier. Everything was perfect, from the location, to the beautifully appointed room and common areas, to the daily breakfast, to the warm hosts. We were very sad to leave!

This year was our 25th wedding anniversary. We delayed, considered Europe, attended a wedding in Provincetown and decided the wedding invite was providence telling us to stay close to celebrate our own nuptials. Edgartown is part of our past.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Martha's Vineyard this Sept. and our stay at The Christopher only enhanced it. The inn benefits from an excellent, central location in downtown Edgartown that is, nevertheless, quiet. Our second floor room was very clean, comfortable and spacious. The bathroom was, however, pretty tight, particularly the shower. The entire hotel has been beautifully updated,... More

We enjoyed 3 wonderful nights here over the weekend. Julie & Marla made our arrival seem like a visit to their home! Freshly baked cookies offered each day as well as a tasty, unique, handmade buffet for breakfast each morning. It has just been redecorated & redesigned & is really fun & lovely. The outdoor back patio was a treat... More

The Christopher, which was recently redecorated, is a perfectly located, very comfortable B&B that fits in perfectly with classy but understated Edgartown. Marla and Julie provide a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere not to mention the plethora of fresh baked goods available during breakfast and afternoons. My room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The backyard patio... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights at the Christopher last week and were sad to leave. Julie and Marla, the hoteliers who oversee the Christopher, go beyond the normal limits to make certain that your stay in their establishment exceeds your expectations -- and they succeed on all fronts!
