Martha’s Vineyard Getaways That Combine the Past And Present—Always

More Than a Hotel, A  Legacy for Generations of Families

The historic Harbor View Hotel on Martha’s Vineyard, located in the very heart of Edgartown, Massachusetts, has been the second home for generations of families. In fact, many generations stay here all at the same time. Martha’s Vineyard getaways to Harbor View are more than mere vacations. They are beloved traditions where family customs are passed down, fun activities are shared and the cherished heritage of the past comes alive every day.

With stunning ocean views and refined Martha’s Vineyard décor, we deliver the attentive personal service you thought had disappeared forever. The Harbor View Hotel offers a thoughtful year-round array of guest services, family activities and Martha’s Vineyard special events. We have been rated one of the “World’s Best Hotels” by Travel + Leisure and the “Best Overall Place to Stay” by Martha’s Vineyard Magazine.

Built in 1891, overlooking Martha’s Vineyard’s Edgartown Lighthouse, Edgartown Harbor and Chappaquiddick Island, our Martha’s Vineyard hotel is flanked by historic homes from 19th Century whaling captains. With stately elm trees lining the streets, you can walk from the Harbor View to everything in Edgartown Massachusetts. Explore our quaint town on a bicycle or a short walk. With golf, dining, beaching, sailing, outdoor heated pool and much more, you’re going to love Martha’s Vineyard. Plan getaways to Martha’s Vineyard by visiting our reservations page.
