Thorncroft Inn is an 8 room secluded, first class, exclusively couples oriented country inn situated on 1 1/2 acres of landscaped, treed grounds, one block from the ocean in an area of summer estates. The inn specializes in honeymoons, anniversaries, engagements, birthdays and any romantic getaway for which the Island of Martha's Vineyard is the ideal setting.

Rooms at this Martha's Vineyard bed and breakfast are furnished with fine antiques and quality reproductions. Most rooms have working, wood-burning fireplaces, that are prepared match-ready for guest use. Many rooms have furnished balconies or private decks and porches with private exterior entrances. Some rooms have two person whirlpools or private in-room hot tubs. For absolute privacy, we have a private cottage complete with its own garage to house your vintage convertible and a large covered deck complete with a two-person hammock.

After 37 years of operation, the Buder family is well acquainted with great service and consistent quality. The inn's concierge service is renowned and begins when you make your reservation. We pride ourselves in acquainting our guests with useful information regarding transportation to, from and on the island, dinner reservations, tickets to local events and beach and touring pointers.

Join us at Thorncroft for a stress-free vacation on our tranquil island where you will not find a traffic light, four-lane highway or fast-food establishment, a retrospective view of life at a more quiet, peaceful time.
