New England boutique hotel company Lark Hotels has just opened its newest property, the Edgartown Inn. This is their fifth location on Martha’s Vineyard, and the small hotel packs big personality into its twelve rooms.
The Boston-based designers Rachel Reider Interiors pulled inspiration from a side of the Vineyard’s history that is sometimes overlooked—the many farms and gardens found inland that make up much of its rich heritage.
Once a sea captain’s home, the building has kept its stately architecture but with an updated interior. Each of the inn’s twelve rooms offers its own individual layout, a soothing design, and an updated private bath. Several rooms feature private balconies with views of Edgartown Village or Chappaquiddick Point.
Lark Hotels, based in Amesbury, Massachusetts, also operates Summercamp in Oak Bluffs, along with The Richard, The Sydney, and The Christopher in Edgartown.
“This property is not only unlike our other Edgartown spots, but also unlike any in our portfolio to date,” said Lark Hotels President and Founder, Rob Blood. “We like to think beyond the obvious when it comes to tying a hotel experience into a destination, and paying homage to the Vineyard’s many farmers does just that. For a small, 12-room hotel, The Edgartown Inn packs a lot of personality and points of interest without taking away from its light and tranquil feel.”
They achieved a farmhouse feel with modern touches, natural materials like linen, rope, and wood, and a light and airy color palate. Woven light fixtures in the guest rooms and shared spaces provide an artisanal feel, and a wall of greenery infuses the hotel’s lounge with a living element and soft green tones. Photography by Alison Shaw is featured in all guest rooms, and local artist MC painted a creative mural in the entryway to highlight the locations of the island’s farms.
In 2020 following the spread of Covid-19, Lark Hotels has introduced a new set of global standards for cleaning and safety precautions, including social distancing, mask requirements in all public places, health screening and temperature checks for all staff, increased sanitation stations, and more.

The guest rooms range from two cozy queen rooms to the property’s king deluxe rooms with private balconies. While most rooms require stairs to access, the inn offers one fully ADA-accessible room, and two other king deluxe rooms on its first floor. The hotel has four guaranteed parking spots, each available for $40 per night. Guests interested in reserving a guaranteed parking spot must call the hotel directly to inquire about availability. Open seasonally, room rates range from $209 to $609 for double occupancy depending on room type and time of stay.
From plush beds and fine linens to expansive ocean views, The Edgartown Inn provides all the luxurious amenities desired from a large hotel in a personalized, boutique setting. Centrally located, the inn is a picturesque stroll down brick roads to all Edgartown has to offer, like beaches, shops, restaurants, biking, and art galleries.
