The Edgartown hotel scene will have a few new additions this summer.

Boutique hotel chain Lark Hotels announced this week that it will operate The Richard, a 16-room hotel, at 104 Main street at the corner of Pease’s Point Way. The property was formerly The Point Way Inn and most recently housed Noepe Center for Literary Arts, a nonprofit artists’ retreat.

The Richard is one of several Island properties and the third Edgartown hotel owned by Charles Hajjar, a Boston-based real estate developer. The Hajjars also own The Sydney on North Water street and The Christopher on South Water street. All three hotels are operated by Lark Hotels, which also operates Summercamp in Oak Bluffs.

Mr. Hajjar bought the former Point Way Inn in September for $4 million, as trustee of RJH Realty Trust. The clapboard house was built in the mid-19th century, according to town records, and was once a whaling captain’s home. It later became a bed and breakfast until it was purchased in 1998. In 2004 former owner Claudia Miller turned the building into accommodations for Island artists, and in 2013 the building formally became Noepe.

The Sydney Hotel will also look different when it opens this summer, with a recent addition of a new building next to the historic property at the corner of North water and Winter streets. The hotel will increase in size from eight to 24 rooms. L’etoile restaurant will remain at the location.
