The Fallon is located in the heart of Edgartown in a beautiful old house. It is really unique and cozy inside. It has an attractive flower garden in front with adirondack chairs you can sit on and have a drink. It also has a nice patio, which was especially valuable as we had a few rainy days. Our room #8...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at The Fallon. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. As you mentioned, we are housed in a 150 year old whaling captains house so the rooms on the 3rd floor are smaller as they are the top floor and the roof of the...

We stayed in Room #1 - large "king" room. We were grateful for the in room seating area as there is no common space in the inn save some outdoor seating that others have mentioned and the bar associated with the restaurant that occupies the first floor. We turned off the a/c upon our arrival and had a nice, beginning...

Thank you for taking the time to offer a review. I agree that the property needs some TLC and I am excited to say that as of May we have new owners.

We really enjoyed our time at the Fallon and in Martha's Vineyard. This Inn is close to everything! There is even a fabulous restaurant on the main floor. We were able to walk everywhere. Love the Adirondack chairs out front. Spent a lot time drinking wine and people watching. The room was great. The gal running the Inn was fabulous!...

I booked room 7 as a last minute one night booking in July. I was skeptical because it was the only room in Edgartown available last minute...but when I got there I realized it must have been a fluke cancellation. Room was fresh clean well appointed Inn keeper was lovely. Location could not be better if not in the water....

My husband and I stayed here last September as part of an anniversary trip. We stayed in the front king room (I think #1), with the bay window and glimpses of the harbor. The location is very good, right in the middle of Edgartown. The restaurant on the bottom floor of the inn was excellent. It was really convenient to...

Hi Cindy, Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay last fall 2013. I do agree that those bottom steps looked bad. We had put in a very light color carpet and even though it was professionally cleaned monthly, it still showed wear quickly. Good news is that they look great now and we are...

Carol at The Fallon of Edgartown made my engagement very memorable. My fiancé coordinated getting flowers delivered from Donarama's, and Carol made it work and decorated the room without him there!

Carol the manager at the Fallon loves to host and welcomes you to enjoy this charming island from a perfect location where all the fun stuff is right out the door. The rooms are quiet, fresh, and comfortable, a good value for this location. We were touched when Carol made arrangements for champagne and a card for our 40th anniversary....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Sydney (formerly The Fallon), an intimately sized boutique Edgartown hotel. Completely renovated and refreshed in 2015, this chic jewel is located in the heart of Edgartown above the renowned l'etoile restaurant. Featuring 8 stylish Edgartown hotel accommodations, The Sydney is your key to an exclusive and relaxing Martha's Vineyard vacation. The name "Sydney" means "wide island south of the water" -- an ideal description of Martha's Vineyard. Our boutique Edgartown hotel is a small but distinctive fixture in central Edgartown -- a magnificent Victorian home built in 1892 by Captain Charles W. Fisher, with an intact lawn and lovely architectural details. That's why we call The Sydney a "small jewel on a wide isle." It's petite, chic and perfectly located. ... more   less
