Hob Knob History

A century of island hospitality

The Hob Knob Luxury Boutique Hotel & Spa on Martha's Vineyard occupies a classic 19th-century Gothic Revival building on Upper Main Street in Edgartown, a short walk from the heart of the downtown village with its lively harbor, shops, galleries, and restaurants. It has a distinguished history among island accommodations. 

Built in the late 1800s as a private home, the Fuller House offered lodging for visitors starting in the early 1920s, under the ownership of Mrs. Norah Fuller. In the 1940s, Mrs. Fuller hosted John F. Kennedy, who was in Edgartown for a sailing regatta with his family, who were also her guests. The door to the room in which the future president slept, adjacent to the front desk, can be seen today, alongside a framed newspaper article about the occasion.

Over the years, the beautifully appointed seventeen-room hotel has housed generations of travelers to Martha’s Vineyard. It was rechristened in 1983 as The Governor Bradford Inn, and again in 1996 as the Hob Knob Inn. Today, the Hob Knob Luxury Boutique Hotel & Spa has been updated and refreshed, with expanded spa, health, and wellness services and facilities. We look forward to welcoming you here on your next visit to Martha’s Vineyard.
