About the property

10 Bedrooms, 11 Bathrooms - - sleeps 20+

This is a unique fully equipped property has glorious direct views of Vineyard Sound, direct large sandy beach access 30 feet away, and many amenities that make it a perfect vacation spot. The Grafton Inn can accommodate your large family, family reunions, corporate meetings, retreats or off-sites, and many other special occasions, or events year-round.

The property sleeps 20+ comfortably, with 10 bedrooms (all air conditioned), each with a full bathroom with shower, and an additional full common bathroom. Sorry, absolutely no pets, NO exceptions.

There is an additional room on the first floor that can be fully closed off (with the common bathroom) to serve as an 11th bedroom if you bring a blow up mattress or sleeping bags (perfect for kids!). There are ocean views from most bedrooms and common areas, including a four season enclosed porch with expansive panoramic water and Vineyard views.

There is a fully equipped kitchen (including pots/pans/dishes/glasses/wine glasses/toaster/coffee pot/blender/microwave/extra large fridge in shed and small fridge with ice maker on indoor porch), linens, bath towels, wireless high-speed internet, and cable TV in every bedroom. A washer/dryer is also available for use, as well as a fenced in outside area with a very large natural gas BBQ, 2 picnic tables and lounge chairs. A private parking lot for the property can fit around 14 cars.

This is truly a remarkable property. The 10+ bedrooms each with their own bathroom provide a unique opportunity for large gatherings of friends and/or family. The ability to gather together in the common areas or have your alone time is a major plus. The oceanfront home books up early, so round up your group and call/email to make your reservations now.

Awesome views - - great for large families

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our high expectations ! The water views, sailboats passing by, beach proximity and amenities made for a great vacation for our large extended family.

Each of the 9 bedrooms having their own bathrooms and plenty of interior space for group meals and activities was great. This grand old victorian beach house is in wonderful condition considering it's age and was fully equipped.

We plan on being back !

consistantly fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Grafton Inn and it was as wonderful as last year's stay. My only regret is that we can't go again next year due to family's prior commitments. The Inn is immaculate. There were new carpets and bedding and it was so clean, it looked like it had been recently painted. Each of the 10 bedrooms have a ceiling fan, AC and TV, and a bathroom with toilet , shower and sink. There are 2 additional bathrooms, one outside and the other with a Jacuzzi tub. The living room has a large screen TV, DVD player and plenty of comfortable sofas and chairs. The kitchen is fully loaded and very workable. A couple of families were able to prepare meals together without bumping into each other. We were told that next year there would be a new kitchen. Extra fridges outside in the shed and on the enclosed porch made food (and alcohol) storage easy. Of course, the quiet beach across the street is a great plus. Last year we visited the end of August and this year it was the end of July and the beach was only slightly more inhabited. We traveled with 10 and 6 year old boys and 5 and 3 year old girls. All of them remembered the house from the previous year and felt comfortable maneuvering all 3 floors and sleeping in bedrooms with peers rather than with parents. Margaret the caretaker was very helpful and called to tell us about some storms that were expected. Felicia Schecter-Emrich and Matthew Emrich have a great place to vacation and do a great job of making it a place you want to return year after year.

Cape Cod at it's best

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our second stay at this wonderful Cape Cod summer home. We had 25 people total and we never felt crowded. The 10 bedroom and 11 bath home assures privacy for everyone while giving you every amenity possible. The large dining room and breakfast room allowed all of us to eat dinner together. It is a huge advantage that the bed linens and bath towels are provided. There is a large washer and dryer so keeping up with the beach towels was a breeze. The additional 2 refrigerators in the storage shed was a real plus for all the extra beverages and fish that was caught on a fishing trip. The numerous beach chairs and umbrellas available was also a plus. I cannot recommend this summer home enough - the ocean is literally right across the street. With children it was less than a minute walk back to the house - which was huge for us. Only suggestion - maybe have a high chair available.

We absolutely loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Inn for 4 days with a group of just under 20 and it was as advertised, if not better. I personally thought the views from the house and the house itself were even nicer than pictured. The house included everything we needed for the stay. Had plenty of common area to hang out during the day and at night. Was also very nice to have a few restaurants and the ferry to Martha's within walking distance. Would definitely book and stay here again!
