The Kelley House and The Harbor View will undergo a guestroom expansion beginning Oct. 2001. After the expansion is complete in May 2002, the properties will feature 60 and 130 guestrooms, respectively.

Originally built in 1742 as a tavern, the Kelley House is ideally located near the waterfront in downtown Edgarton. The inn was completely renovated in 2000 and features 53 guestrooms, including eight one- and two-bedroom suites. Maritime artifacts and artwork add decorative touches to the warm, home-like atmosphere of the main lobby.
