Hob Knob press highlights

Conde Nast Traveller : JFK stayed at this Gothic Revival inn during a sailing regatta…and a nautical theme lives on in red-and-navy common areas. The 17 guest rooms are (thankfully) devoid of the swordfish stencils and floral motifs that adorn most Vineyard hotels. The environmental programme - rooted in extensive composting and recycling, and breakfasts of local, organic berry pancakes and farm-egg omelettes - is a point of pride.

USA Today : Hob Knob, a boutique 17-room property in a former 19th century gothic house in Edgartown, prides itself on its eco-friendly practices, ranging from using local products to composting, but the very personalized service might be what makes it most memorable. Gourmet picnics to go, private fishing trips on its Boston Whaler to catch dinner, or a treatment in the spa, located on property, make guests love Hob Nob.

Washington Life : As an eco-friendly boutique hotel centrally located in Edgartown, this hotel’s luxurious rooms… strike the right balance of relaxation and tranquility in a quiet environment.

Best Weekends : Everyone has their preference for the type of accommodations they prefer; B&B’s, inns or full service hotels. The Hob Knob has managed to combine the best of all three...the intimacy of a B&B, the charm of a country inn and the amenities of a top-notch hotel. Elegant and cozy public rooms, beautiful gardens, a wonderful wrap-around porch, a scrumptious organic breakfast and a terrific staff all come together for an ideal weekend retreat.

Boston Magazine : Couples intent on an intimate ceremony will love the refurbished 17-room HOB KNOB hotel (508-627-9510). The former Edgartown captain’s home is now the island’s only eco-friendly lodging, with low-VOC wall paint, kitchen composting, and a menu of local, organic offerings.

Well Wed : Retreat for a wedding weekend getaway at Hob Knob! This luxurious and eco-conscious boutique hotel in the heart of Martha’s Vineyard offers up plenty of wedding packages to help you celebrate. From verdant vineyard vows to a truly swoon-worthy honeymoon package, Hob Knob is your ideal locale for intimate and one-of-a-kind nuptials.

The Oyster : Centrally along a quaint stretch of Main Street, the Hob Knob is a welcoming bed-and-breakfast with a well-landscaped yard and wrap-around porch. Of course, in high-tourist season the prices reflect its status as a popular boutique – but in a lot of ways, you do get what you pay for. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with Berber carpeting, luxurious European linens and bathrobes, lovely classic American-cottage decor (though some rooms feel more tended to than others), and pretty bathrooms with marble sinks. Other highlights include the free organic, full-farm breakfast, and the fact that downtown Edgartown is a short walk away.

Hotel Guru : 19th-century home turned boutique hotel with manicured garden, sit out porch and classic interiors. Rooms house big beds, bright bathrooms and delicious breakfast in the dining room. In-house spa, gym and sauna are for all to relax in wine country. Check out the Hob Knob 27' Boston Whaler boat.

Yankee's Most Eco-Friendly Luxury Stay
This 17-room hotel tucked into a 19th-century Gothic Revival home has both the luxury (high-thread-count linens, Vineyard styling, organic breakfast food) and the green touches (nontoxic cleaning products, bath and beauty products made with wind energy) to stake a simultaneous claim to ecological stewardship and sheer comfort. Think of it as Jay Gatsby meets Al Gore.

Yankee's Best Boutique Venue
The atmosphere is neither starched nor flowery-formal. Instead, wicker rockers on the wraparound porch and comfy seating in the inn’s parlors invite socializing and hanging out. Larger-than-average rooms come with all the expected high-end amenities, plus thoughtful surprises such as air purifiers and white-noise generators.
