The name Sydney means "wide island south of the water"—an ideal description of Martha's Vineyard. With the presence of acclaimed eatery l'etoile and the addition of a second building, our boutique Edgartown inn is a distinctive fixture in central Edgartown. The original building, on Edgartown's bustling North Water Street, houses 8 rooms and is a magnificent Victorian home built in 1892 by whaling captain Charles William Fisher. It includes a uniquely expansive lawn and architectural details lovingly preserved during the restoration process. The adjacent new building on Winter Street is a rare example of new hotel construction in Edgartown and features 14 beautifully designed guest accommodations.
