About the property

Center of Town - 2 min walk to Commercial St, parking for 4 cars, dog friendly

The newly renovated Kelley House (named after Captain Charles Kelley, the ship captain who built this house in 1850), is a centrally located 4 bedroom Victorian, which has retained much of its 1850 charm while offering newly renovated bathrooms and a modern kitchen. Enjoy spacious air-conditioned rooms with hardwood flooring, vaulted ceilings in all 3 second floor bedrooms (the 1st floor bedroom/full bath is ideal for those who find stairs difficult). Five skylights throughout the second floor, and stained glass adds to the charming atmosphere. If you are not gazing at the stars through the skylights, you may be enjoying our farmhouse table in the sunny dining room or relaxing in our conversation couch in the living area enjoying your friends or watching Netflix on the smart tv. You won't be crowded here with the use of our large storage shed for bikes and beach gear and our outdoor living area and beautiful garden. Two minute walk down Arch Street to Commercial Street, the bay beach, shopping and the market. A five minute walk from MacMillan Pier where the high speed Boston ferry arrives. There is parking for 4 cars on the crushed shell driveway next to our yard which is enclosed with a white picket fence. Pet friendly with owner's permission. High speed internet/wi-fi and a smart tv.

Very comfortable and easy

  • 4 of 5

Six of us stayed here for a week to celebrate my birthday!! And we had a great time.

The house is even nicer than it looks in the photos and has everything you need on hand (utensils, glasses, grill, ample space). The main living area is arranged well for both group conversation and the occasional afternoon nap when everyone else is gone.

The bathrooms are all very modern and well designed. And the washer/dryer are a plus.

The store, Farland Provisions, is literally across the street for quick runs for supplies. (good breakfast sandwiches) Go north up conwell about 0.5 miles and you hit the ptown running/bike trails - super convinenet for a run or ride.

Amazing Stay for a long Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I stayed in Janet's beautiful home in the heart of Ptown. This location cannot be beat and the house was so more than expected -- recently remodeled, spacious, but also warm and cozy. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a large dinning/kitchen combination which made hanging out with a group easy and fun! We will definitely be back!
