Mansion House Inn & Conference Center

Vineyard Haven, MA

Client

Tisbury Inn Trust

Program

53,000 SF new mixed-use structure, with 41 guest rooms, a health club, a full service restaurant and several retail storefronts

Challenge

Re-establishment of the historic Tisbury Inn after a devastating fire. Capture the Victorian spirit of the community while providing state of the art accommodations.

Solution

The introduction of a wrap-around porch, based on historic town photos, creates a pedestrian friendly scale for the lobby and retail storefronts. Utilizing a palette that reflects the traditional elegance of the seaside location, rooms were re-configured to provide flexible suite arrangements and add balconies overlooking the harbor.

Result

The Inn won 2004 Phoenix Award for Small Business Disaster Recovery and has returned to full operating capacity.
