“Out of season but still just perfect.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

The Harbor View hotel is just beautiful. We stayed there in early April, so many things on the island were closed but there was just enough open to keep us entertained.

The hotel itself commands stunning views over Chappy and the harbour and is just a short walk (5 mins) to the centre of Edgartown.

The rooms are incredibly well kept and the staff very accommodating.

The four of us (all 27-31yrs old) had a fantastic time and highly recommend Harbor View as a place to stay.

It was my husband's birthday and our stay couldn't have been more special. The staff went beyond accommodating and made every effort to insure our time was memorable. The room was luxurious and we really enjoyed our balcony and water view. We had evening drinks at Henry's (in the hotel) and walked to the center of town for a meal at The Newes (run by the hotel) and breakfast was in their lovely restaurant; good food with a view of the lighthouse. We recommend this hotel highly.

Room Tip: Stay in the main hotel, if you can.

Great location on the water, but many rooms do not have a water view. Old motif but this is historic Edgartown on Martha Vineyard. The room was remodeled and adequate with all essentials and noteably clean. Very quiet during the night. Hotel staff courteous and polite. My visit was off season and the price was therefore discounted. I would recommend this hotel and stay again.

Room Tip: This was my first stay with a visit with relatives who live on the island and I did not have time to...

This updated old timber building oozes character from another era.
Accommodation is spacious and whilst the floorboards may creak somewhat, it is modern in a time past shell.
Facilities are good and breakfast choices terrific.
Position is ideal just a stones throw from all the action of this village.

We have stayed in room 301 and, let me tell you this, with five windows facing the beautiful harbor, staying in Edgartown is a luxury. There were many windows so that we could fully appreciate the beauty of it all, and since it was off season, everything was peaceful and quiet. I can't give my opinion about other rooms, but 301 is great.

I stayed at the Harbor View in one of the Captain's Cottages for a little get away. It was an attractive one bedroom suite with dining table that would seat 4, living room, kitchen, walk-in closet, and attractive marble bath with separate shower and tub and a large bedroom with fireplace, seating area, desk, and modern version of 4 poster bed. There are two outdoor porches and an outdoor shower which are probably great in warmer weather. It was unseasonably warm for March and I enjoyed the wrap around porch at the main building, walked down to the beach and lighthouse and walked all over Edgartown. Lunch at the bar was great - fantastic lobster roll and good wine list. Dinner was at the hotel's sister inn - Newes from America is the restaurant. Food was great and there was even a band. Don't miss this great hotel!

No hot tub, no brochures about things to do on the island, staff didnt know much either...really no amenities to speak of....

On the good side, the room was nice, comfy bed and a free water bottle!
