Planning your Trip
The Kelley House made us feel prepared before our trip by making a personalized phone call to help us feel comfortable. Their concierge, Sarah, answered any questions we had about getting there or what to do during our stay. This small touch can make such a difference for all visitors! She sent us relevant information about things to do related to our interests before we even arrived. Such a personalized experience, especially if you’re overwhelmed when planning your trip.
You can really not ask for a better location than the Kelley House. It is within walking distance of literally anything you can need for your trip. But even better is what is ALREADY included at the hotel. It is attached to a pub (The Newes from America), a pool and bar (Wave), and a market/cafe (Myx). This makes leaving the hotel optional, even with all the beauty that surrounds you in Edgartown. You are literally in the middle of the best shopping, bars, and views of the harbor on the island. You are close to public transit VTA if you need it, and can see the Chappy Ferry from your window. We never had to worry about a car, Ubers, or anything because of the location of this hotel.
The atmosphere when you walk into the Kelley House is welcoming and inviting. The lobby displays local photographs from Vineyard Colors, comfortable couches and the fireplace make it hard to leave. In the mornings they have fresh, warm muffins and in the evenings they have milk and gooey cookies. Definitely makes you want to get out of bed or get home after a great day exploring! The rooms themselves are comfortable, well-stocked and generously sized. Myx Market offers coffee, fresh cafe food and snacks to take to the beach with you. The Wave Bar and pool are located on the property. The Newes from America Pub offers tavern classics, a fireplace, and great brews all on property.
The front desk staff are helpful and take the time to build a personal relationship with you in your time there. They put a personal touch on everything and really try to make your stay as easy as possible. They are knowledgeable and go over and above to make guests have the best Vineyard experience possible.
Overall – KH is a reliable, convenient and all-around exceptional hotel and we can’t recommend the stay more highly. Start planning your trip to the Kelley House today!
