Lambert’s Cove Inn is in a private and pristine, uncrowded part of the island. We are located down a winding road in West Tisbury, up-island, a little less than a 15-minute drive from the ferry in Vineyard Haven. If you have your car when staying with us, you’ll have easy access to island exploration. If you do not have a car, please know that we are off the beaten path, and you will need to use taxis, Ubers, and Lyfts to find your way around the island. We strongly recommend renting a car if you do not plan to bring one over with you.

Our supremely private location offers you the opportunity to settle in for a peaceful visit. Enjoy our 8-acres of grounds, our beautiful gardens, and our pool. Hit our restaurant and bistro for flavor and hospitality. Think of Lambert’s Cove Inn as your private, exclusive compound. Lambert’s Cove Beach—a beach private to the residents of West Tisbury—is a very short distance away, and you can pedal one of our bikes there—or we can give you a ride down to the beach on our Inn golf cart where you can bask in the sun on one of the Inn’s complimentary beach chairs.

Just know that we are away from the wonderful hustle bustle of the island and parts of the island will not be easily accessible if you do not have a car. We want you to know this so you can plan your trip accordingly.
