“Lovely and convenient place to stay”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

We just returned from a short trip to Martha's Vineyard to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in essentially an efficiency apartment at the Chappy House, one of the many out-buildings attached to the Kelley House. It was spacious, clean, and comfortable. We understood that our unit was "pet-friendly" and I'm happy to report no unpleasant odors nor stains anywhere! Every morning the hotel supplies muffins and coffee and every evening they supply cookies and milk! A very nice touch. They also have beach towels and chairs for guests' use and are very accommodating about arranging activities. A very nice experience which we would repeat.

This hotel could not have a better location. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rates are reasonable. They do not offer a full breakfest, but the muffins and coffee are delicious. The rooms were spacious and there were plenty of drawers for heavy packers. I have been to Martha's Vineyard before and had my eye on the Kelley House, so I was glad I got the chance to stay there.

Room Tip: The rooms on the back side are quieter.

My wife and I have been occasional visitors to Martha's Vineyard over the years, but this was our first stay at an inn in Edgartown. The staff was extremely pleasant and welcoming at every turn, including long after check out when I returned and asked for the use of a rest room to make a quick clothing change. During our stay, we found our room very comfortable and clean, nicely appointed and of good size, and with a very nice shower. A good value in this upscale town.

Stayed at the Kelley House for two nights. It is literally a one minute walk from the Pied Piper (ferry). Hotel is everything you would imagine: quaint, cozy and charming. The staff were friendly and helpful. The lobby has significant seating and a working fireplace. Coffee and muffins are out in the morning and chocolate chip cookies in the evening. The room and bathroom were clean and spacious with nice, crisp linens. The location couldn't be better! A short walk to everything! The only "downside"? No elevator.

We just stayed at Kelley House last weekend. They were one of the few places who accepted us for only two nights in August. I expected a small bed and breakfast, but they were a wonderful quaint hotel - located one block off the main street and the water. The lobby was decorated with comfy overstuffed leather chairs, a fire was in the fireplace, the desk help was wonderful, polite and professional.

Our room was large, comfortable and overlooked the water. Bedding was fluffy and clean. The room was very clean. The bathroom was also very clean.

We had a wonderful trip and would highly recommend the Kelley House and would definitely stay there again!!

Room Tip: We had a "garden king" which was on the 3rd floor of the main house. Very spacious and ove...

We usually stay at Harbor View but could not get in this time so chose Kelley House; not sure what to expect but was really happy with our "default" choice! Lovely atmosphere--cozy and quiet--and the staff is exceptional. Steven at the front desk was so welcoming and warm and helpful in every way, really taking a personal interest in our having a good "Vineyard" experience. The rooms are just right, although the bathtub needs updating; the rest of the bath is fresh and pretty. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends. Great location, parking easy and tables in back adjacent to pool make it easy to grab a bite from the Quarterdeck and enjoy a quiet lunch in the shade!

We took our boys, ages 12 and 10, to the Vineyard for the first time and choose the Kelley House as they were welcoming and flexible about kids and how to sleep everybody in just one room from the moment we called to inquire. We booked a single room with 2 double beds. When we arrived, the Innkeeper, Steven, offered to upgrade us at NO cost to a large suite so that we'd be even more comfortable. It was awesome and he was so gracious, truly interested in making sure we all had a great visit. All of his suggestions for where to eat, what to do, etc. were spot-on. The whole staff was very nice and we had a fantastic time. The location is also wonderful, within minutes of Main Street but just a bit off of it, which is nice for avoiding the heavy pedestrian, car, & bike, traffic. Would give the Kelley House the very highest of recommendations in all areas and would love to return one day in the future!
