Harbor View Hotel

Over 120 years ago, since its opening in 1891, Harbor View Hotel has been nicknamed the “Grand Dame” of Martha’s Vineyard and introduced a new era for Edgartown and Martha’s Vineyard. With an extraordinary view of Edgartown Harbor from the hotel’s broad veranda, Harbor View became a summer haven for wealthy New Yorkers visiting the Vineyard.

Faced with 100,000 cedar shingles imported from New Brunswick, Harbor View Hotel offered guests the modern conveniences of the day, including a single telephone line and gas lights. Since then, Harbor View Hotel has welcomed generations of families to Edgartown and the Vineyard, building an extremely loyal following of returning guests.

Charming and sophisticated, the 114 beautifully-appointed guestrooms at The Harbor View Hotel and Resort on Martha’s Vineyard are individually decorated offering a personalized warmth.
