ABOUT VINALHAVEN 

 The Historic Moses Webster House


      Payne Homestead at the Moses Webster House is Vinalhaven's most historic B&B. This historic French Victorian home was built in 1873 by granite magnate, Moses Webster.


      The elite Moses Webster House  boasts the splendor of the era, yet preserves the casual comfort of island lifestyle. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1998.

​​​Welcome to our B&B. We invite you to look around and find out more about us.
Then we hope you'll pay us a visit, so we can share our island with you.
