In Martha's Vineyard, multi-million dollar vacation homes line the shores and adorable inns dot the streets. As such, it's no wonder why the destination has become such a popular summer getaway for the rich and famous.

What's more, one hotel that embodies the island's signature laid-back luxury vibe is The Edgartown Inn. This quaint property — part of a collection of four boutique hotels called The Edgartown Collection — boasts renovated guest rooms, plenty of outdoor space, and a slew of upscale amenities: making for a breezy beachfront escape. 

It's All in the Details

What You Need to Know 

The Look of The Edgartown Inn

The Edgartown Inn is housed in a 1798-era structure that served as the former home of a whaling captain. Today, guests will find plenty of handmade and vintage touches throughout the Inn, including a local artist mural that spans the entryway. The hotel lounge, which boasts a living wall, plush seating, and a neutral color palette, is another highlight. Just outside the main building is a small courtyard where guests can mingle over a bottle of vino. 

The historic home-turned-boutique hotel also boasts 12 beachy chic-inspired guest rooms done up in grays and creams. While small, the accommodations offer all of the high-end touches that one would expect from a boutique inn, from comfy robes to wine glasses and corkscrews at the ready.

The seasonally open property is quaint and cozy with plenty of personality. Plus, with a prime location in the middle of town, it's easy to come and go from the Inn as needed. Early in the morning, you may spot guests sipping coffee on the porch, and, later in the evening, the same guests are dressed to the nines for a five-star meal.
