The Captain Fisher House was purchased by the Shields family in Spring 2009. With a passion for restoring old homes and a love for the rich history of Edgartown, the family has begun to implement their vision to bring new life to the home while embracing its past.
By naming the inn The Fallon, the Shields own family history becomes a part of the home. Fallon is Jack's Paternal Grandmother's maiden name as well as that of their oldest daughter. It is Gaelic for "Daughter of the Ruler." Along with the name change, renovations such as central air and a full compliment of amenities bring the guestrooms up to the highest level of comfort for our guests while maintaining the character and charm of this historic home.
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to Martha's Vineyard. Our hope is that you have the best possible experience whether your goal is relaxation or exploration and that you leave The Fallon with wonderful memories to share with family and friends until your next visit with us.
