Summer in New England. The destinations are plenty: the beaches of Maine, the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the Green Mountains of Vermont, the Rhode Island coast or the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.
Furrylittlegnome just returned from one of these destinations, and gnome has to say, she enjoyed her time in the town of Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard! It all began with a drive from Boston to Falmouth, Massachusetts to catch the “Pied Piper” for a forty-five minute ferry ride to Edgartown Harbor.
Because we were staying in Edgartown, there was no reason to take the car to the island. Once we exited the ferry, our hotel was literally a two-minute walk away.
The Kelly House is everything you would think a hotel on Martha’s Vineyard should be like. Both, the quiet street and the white clapboard building make this Edgartown hotel an absolute gem.
Main Street is considered “downtown” in Edgartown. A small partially two way road, bicyclists, cars and people mingle. The street is adorned with white houses and stores. You can find a Lilly Pulitzer via shop and a J McLaughlin tucked inbetween local stores and landmarks.
The food? Well, it is New England and Edgartown is surrounded by the North Atlantic. Seafood is plenty, and thankfully for furrylittlegnome, she is a fan! Although she ate at restaurants called “The Atlantic” and “Alchemy”, gnome was happy to visit “Quarterdeck” for some clams!
