The Mansion House Hotel in Vineyard Haven has reopened its health club with new Covid-19 protocols.
Mansion House


Mansion House Health Club proudly offers new Lifecycle GX Group Exercise Bikes. Designed by Life Fitness, the company that brought you the original Lifecycle Equipment, this new state of the art exercise bike is biomechanically designed to ensure a comfortable yet effective workout. Carefully chosen and tested by Fitness Director Brenda Wallis, Lifecycle’s study of human movement and machine interaction impressed Ms. Wallis and she thinks this brand of bike stands at the head of any class.

Mansion House Health Club just sprinted toward the future, in heart-healthy fashion, of course. The gym recently purchased new high-tech equipment, including elliptical units, treadmills, stationary bikes and crossover equipment with 19-inch touch screen displays that allow users to track fitness goals, surf the web, watch TV, check emails and connect to mobile devices while working out.

The flavors of Chinatown are coming to Main street in Vineyard Haven.

Mr. Blau and business partner and chef Alex Nagi will take over operations of Zephrus, the longtime restaurant at the hotel. The restaurant is slated to open in April. Mr. Nagi will be head chef.
