Kelley House
Ranked #9 of 10 Edgartown B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 July 2012

We went back to stay at the Kelley House in Edgartown for a second time and this time for 3 nights during the 4th of July!!
From start to finish this Inn has it all from the most amazing Innkeeper (Steve) to all the staff being so helpful and friendly (whenever we needed anything they were right there to help with suggestions of where to eat to going to a local animal farm with our son).
We own a travel agency in Beverly MA and travel about 5 times a year to visit properties for our clients and we loved this property so much we decided to return to the Kelley House again (we are actually booked to go back again next year too and taking my brother and his family with us this time....best to book in advance as this place is becoming so popular with guests).
We travel with our 4 year son all the time and he loved the pool on property here (we were there everyday with the other families). Steve and his staff planned an excellent Barbeque by the pool for all the guest on 4th of July afternoon with hamburgs, hotdogs, watermelon, drinks and and the best italian ice!
Our Room was so wonderful....last year we stayed in the main building which was great and this year we decided to try the Chappy House building with a bedroom, living room and kitchenette and a large balcony....the room was so clean and beautiful and the bed was the most comfortable bed (like the heavenly beds). We had coffee in our room and if you go to the lobby in the morning they have coffee and great muffins for all the guests and in the evening they have cookies (my son loved this).

When you stay at the Kelley House either in the main building or one of their other buildings, you walk right outside your door and the picturesque town of Edgartown is right there with all the great restaurants and shops we didn't really need to use our car unless we took a ride around the island.
One of the other great things about this Inn is that you have access to the facilities at the Harbor View Hotel at the point where the Lighthouse is located and the most beautiful peaceful beach.
You feel so at home staying here it is wonderful, we did not want to leave!

I also need to add that my 4 year old son loves Steve so much that before we left to visit the Kelley House (and Steve) he wanted to make him a card (well actually a couple cards) and also made him some brownies (I think Steve enjoyed them and shared them with his staff).

If tripadvisor has a 10 rating....I would give it!! They love what they do and when people love what they do, you have an amazing place that people just want to keep coming back.

Great job to everyone at the Kelley House, keep up the great work, we can not wait to come back!

Room Tip: Any room you stay in here would be wonderful....if you have a family and need more space, you can st...

I enjoyed my stay at the Kelley House. I can't wait to come back and stay here again. I highly recommend staying here. The rooms were spacious, staff was extremely attentive and accomodating to the guests, and the atmosphere is phenomenal. You have to come to Martha's Vineyard and experience it yourself.

The Kelley House property is comprised of four or five separate buildings. We stayed in the Garden Hotel, which houses the front desk and cozy lobby with a working fireplace, the last week of June 2012. The room had a king bed, very comfortable I might add, an overstuffed chair/ottoman, desk and chair, refrigerator, flat screen TV in an armoire, another dresser/2 night stands and four large windows. Very roomy, with a good size bathroom with good water pressure in the shower.The rooms were cleaned very quickly each a.m. Free muffins & coffee in the a.m., milk & cookies at night. The pool was clean and in the sun most of the day. The location was primo! A minute walk to a plethora of shops, restaurants, breakfast nooks, marine activities and the ferry to Chappaquiddick Island. If you love to garden, stroll around the neighborhood for gardens and window boxes that are sheer artistry. Although we purposely brought our jeep to tour the entire island, the public transportation is excellent. All staff members were friendly and accommodating. We were on the 3rd floor (#302) a corner room. Minor inconveniences: The hallways do not have AC, and there is no elevator. Parking right on the property isn't always available, you have to walk maybe 4 minutes to a satelite lot. None of these would deter us from staying there again in a heartbeat, but since we base our hotel selection by reading other TripAdvisor reviews, I like to list pros & cons. If you like beachcombing, you must take the 2 minute ferry over to Chappy. Thesmall beach on either side of the ferry is a treasure trove of shells! If you're a fan of craft beer, the Newes Pub next door has an excellent rack of 5 beers of your choice that they have on tap, at a bargain price. We really enjoyed the "bento boxes" at Chesca's, a very unique concept of serving your meal, including soup, salad, vegetable, garlic chive mashed potato's and your choice of entree (shrimpt, chicken, salmon) in a lacquered box. If you go to Oak Bluffs, make sure you see the gingerbread cottages, with beautiful gardens/inviting front porches on a side street off of Circuit St. If you go to Aquinnah to see the Gay Head cliffs, it is well worth the 10 - 15 minute walk down to Moshup Beach, where you can see the colorful cliffs up close. Spectacular! If you like big waves, South Beach was wonderful. We watched kite boarders in action for hours. State Beach, was nice also, just pull over to the side of the road and walk up one of the well spaced boardwalks.

I've stayed at the Kelley House three times in the past two years and can't say enough about the gorgeous suite in the Court House building. Very clean, beautiful decor and well equipped. As for the staff, the Hotel Manager (Steven Brunelle) was so accommodating all three visits. My most recent stay was with my 19 year old granddaughter and we were treated so special. Steven shines with his winning personality and knowledge of the Vineyard. Also we really appreciated the excellent service provided by an employee named Sam...what a great guy.
I highly recommend this Inn.

Room Tip: The two bedroom suite in the Court House with a wonderful wrap around porch.

We chose the Kelley House because of its great location right in town. After exploring the island for several days, there's no question that the Kelley House will be our destination of choice for future vacations. The hotel sent us an email before our arrival and we informed them of our travel plans. Even with us catching an earlier ferry, they were prepared for our arrival and had our room ready well before check-in time. They suggested several restaurants in the area for breakfast/lunch/dinner and provided a handy map. We felt welcomed throughout our stay and loved that we could just take a step outside and be so close to great restaurants and shops.

I stayed in Kelley House on business and was very impressed by how comfortable, warm and inviting the hotel is. I would definitely consider returning with family and loved ones.

My room was an extremely good size, with a great view over the picturesque nearby harbour, and was clean and well maintained. The complimentary milk and cookies were well received in the evenings, along with the 24 hour tea and coffee.

The service was terrific, the staff genuinely seemed concerned about my experience (plus I'm always impressed when the staff learn my name).

Lovely place to stay, warm, welcoming and with very comfortable rooms. Sadly the toilet hadn't been cleaned, an oversight, room itself was very clean.
Nice extra touches, such as reusable water bottles and evening milk and cookies. Breakfast muffins are delicious.
Excellent location.
