We had a wonderful time at the house – it was so special to spend the weekend there with my family for our wedding. The rooms were beautiful and the house had so much character – I stayed in the cat room with my cousin and the light there is gorgeous. We loved our time at the Morse House and are looking forward to coming back! Wedding Stay ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We used this house a crew house for a sailing event for 5 days in Edgartown. It was the perfect house to accommodate our group of 16 guests, plenty of room to stretch out! The owner went out of his way to make sure we had all the details needed to make our stay enjoyable and EASY! We will be sure to book again the next time we are out on the Island! Perfect House ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We booked the Capt. Morse House for our extended family during my daughter’s wedding. The bride and bridesmaids also got ready in the home before the lovely walk to the Harbor View hotel–the venue for the wedding ceremony. The rooms were lovely. Everything was clean and bright. The porch was a stunning place for photographs. The manual for what to do and when from the owner was clear and concise. Shops and restaurants just blocks away. DARLING location. The backyard was beautiful. Can’t wait to book again.

We have just spent a wonderful week at the Captain Morse House. Twenty six members of our family celebrating my husband’s birthday. The house is very spacious and confortable, the furniture is beautifully kept and the kitchen is well stocked with all one can require for such a big crowd. Platt (the owner) was very helpful and always available to help if needed. We can warmly recommend a vacation in this house for a large gathering. Platt: It has been a privilege to celebrate my 90th birthday in your mansion. Thank you for your help. Look forward to rent again your house in May 2022 ! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We were lucky enough to spend the week of Thanksgiving at The Captain Morse House on Martha’s Vineyard in 2016! We had a family of 14 stay at the home and it was absolutely, perfect. We were within walking distance to the shops, restaurants and everything the island had to offer. Even though it was the “off” season in November, we loved it. Being from the Midwest, we were able to capture the cooler/more wet of the Fall season!! We Were Lucky ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I stayed at the Captain Morse House Thanksgiving week with my entire family–11 adults and four children. We had very high hopes for a great weekend and they were far exceeded. The CMH is very roomy with plenty of bathrooms. It is in a wonderful location in Edgartown–beach/shops/pubs /restaurants all within easy walking distance. The house is very roomy and has a number of areas to relax or watch TV. Wifi is excellent. The two kitchens are incredibly well supplied. We cooked Thanksgiving dinner without any problem. I can’t think of anything that we lacked. On top of it all, Platt was extremely easy to deal with and ultra-responsive to any questions that we had. My family is ready to book CMH again. I recommend without any reservation. Beyond expectations ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I rented this home for a mastermind weekend for 8 women. We loved the ability to walk to everything in Edgartown, the charm of home and how well stocked the kitchen was! Highly recommend! Charming home in prime location! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

VRBO Review, October, 2016

My husband and I rented this home for our closest friends and extended family members to stay during our wedding on the Vineyard this October. Although we are very familiar with the island, the vast majority of our guests had never been before, and the Captain Morse House offered a perfect location, very comfortable accommodations, and so much MV history for the group. The house is incredibly spacious and has numerous bathrooms and areas to spend time, while still offering plenty of space for groups looking to relax — we had a rainy weekend and our guests loved solving puzzles in the living room and taking advantage of several of the DVDs provided as well. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and all guests said the rooms and beds were very comfortable. The location cannot be beat – a parking space is available but there is not a need for a car if you’re looking to take advantage of all Edgartown has to offer.
We would highly recommend the property for anyone looking for a relaxing group stay in one of the most historic, well-maintained homes on the island. The owner was very responsive as well – the weekend was cooler than the previous week so we requested a temperature adjustment (it was controlled remotely). He immediately adjusted the thermostat for us and provided a quick text update as well. The house is a remarkable property and all of our guests left with very fond memories. A Historic Home Perfectly Updated for a Modern Visit ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

VRBO Review, September, 2016

A truly superb home with all the amenities and ideally located. It was a A brief ten minute walk to fine dining and shops in Edgartown.
Staying in this elegant home was an experience in itself. It had all the finery and grandeur of a home of its significance but still fet warm and cozy for family gatherings.
Although the home is ideally suited for a family reunion with many adult couples and children in tow, my four sisters and our mother (who requires a wheel chair ) never felt lost in this grand home.
Highly reccommend! Stately Historic Home on prestigious N Water St ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
