Thorncroft Inn – Perfect in Every Detail


Thorncroft Inn – Perfect in every detail

35 years ago, when Karl & Lynn Buder purchased the property that would become the Thorncroft Inn on Martha’s Vineyard, they felt that the quiet, secluded setting on 1½ wooded acres would be a perfect romantic getaway for couples. On 1½ acres of treed grounds, one block from the Atlantic Ocean this romantic bed and breakfast is first class, having won numerous awards and accolades over the past three and a half decades.

Dedicated to romantic vacations on Martha’s Vineyard

Room 1-Hot Tub-2014LGToday, that vision has been realized. Thorncroft is devoted exclusively to honeymoons, anniversaries, engagements, elopements and birthday celebrations for the individual couple. The Buders are the masters of detail from their own copyrighted touring publication, available only to guests, to the extraordinary, one-match real wood fires laid in by the inn staff for guest fireplaces. Touches designed to produce a “Wow” from guests include hand written personal notes and roses for special occasions, renowned concierge service and the ample time the innkeeping staff takes to converse with each and every guest. This level of individual care and concern for guests is possible only with the active, daily, hands-on participation of the owners and their dedicated assistants, who are innkeepers at heart.

Amenities to suit your preference!

You could call Thorncroft the “anti-hotel” because all rooms are unique and distinct with varying amenities and features. Most have working fireplaces that are useable year ’round and very romantic on a cool, Vineyard seaside summer evening. Some have furnished balconies, decks or private porches where you can enjoy breakfast delivered to your room while you enjoy your views of our landscaped, treed grounds nestled in the West Chop Woods. The inn offers a private cottage with a two person whirlpool set in a mirrored alcove or a suite with an in-room, private 210 gallon hot tub.

Our greatest compliment comes from our existing clientele. For many years our largest sources of guests have come from word-of-mouth referrals and repeat customers. It’s not unusual to have guests, who have spent their honeymoon with us, return for their 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th or even 30th anniversaries!
