You can't imagine a better bargain than $89 for a $375 room which is almost a suite and overlooks Edgartown Harbor on Martha's Vineyard, and you can even bring your four-legged pet with you to the this gorgeous inn overlooking the harbor.

The Kelley House is actually a B&B in the off season, and has a platter of gourmet muffins and coffee in the fireplaced lobby early each morning, and if you want a full breakfast you can stroll a few steps to their sister property, the Harbor View Hotel.

The breakfast here is wonderful in a large, airy dining room looking out on the harbors entrance and the Edgartown Lighthouse, scene of countless marriages.

Off season rates in The Kelley House main building are all only $80-$89 dollars per night, and four of the rooms have a beautiful water view for that low rate .

Each room has refrigerators, free wifi  and the best Egyptian cotton linens on a very comfortable bed. For a little more there are beautiful suites with 2 or 3 bedrooms and a mini kitchenette.

Peaceful and all to yourself

Shops in Edgartown are still open, but the summer crowds are gone, so we prefer The Vineyard at this time of year, and the sister property, the Harbor View, is offering a spectacular Thanksgiving buffet for only $48, and the seatings are selling out fast, so make your reservation now for next week's trip to Martha's Vineyard.
