One of the oldest hotels in America, the historic Kelley House first opened in 1742. Today, it continues to exude colonial charm and help guests make the most of their Martha's Vineyard visit. 

The property's guest rooms are housed in four distinct buildings. Complimentary fitness classes and evening milk and cookies help make the Kelley House a go-to destination for visitors looking for a home-away-from-home. 

The Kelley House is ideally located in the heart of Edgartown, just a few minutes' walk from the waterfront. Nearby, guests can experience the best of this New England enclave -- including fishing, bicycling, sailing and golfing. 

Authentic nautical decor and historic brick fireplaces complete the colonial experience that Kelley House captures, and offer guests a true taste of classic New England. At the on-site pub, The Newes from America, diners can fill up on hearty dishes like fish and chips and "the best French onion soup on the island" (Frommer's) in a cozy space with original wooden beams and a cheerful stone hearth.
