Pass through stately elm trees toward the shingle-style Harbor View Hotel and experience quintessential Martha's Vineyard. Located in historic Edgartown, Massachusetts, the hotel is in an idyllic location overlooking postcard views of the Edgartown Lighthouse, Edgartown Harbor and Chappaquiddick Island.

Take a walk or bike ride and discover the charm that Martha's Vineyard has to offer. Flanked by the former homes of 19th-century whaling captains, the Harbor View Hotel keeps its history alive while incorporating modern nautical touches to create a sense of luxury.

For either a casual or elegant dining experience, head to year-round gathering spots popular with islanders and visitors alike. Cozy up in Henry’s Hotel Bar, an elegant gastropub with spectacular views, or indulge in fine dining at Lighthouse Grill, where contemporary New England preparations incorporate fresh, local ingredients.

Relax in a high-back rocking chair on the veranda, inhale the ocean air, and see why families return to the iconic Harbor View Hotel year after year.

We were booked in the back part of the hotel and it smelled of potpourri. I have allergy's , the woman at the front desk moved us to the main building. The hotel staff was amazing, could not do enough for you. Also the views were spectacular and close enough to walk to the center of Edgartwown. We will definitely return.

We were told it was about a 7-10 min walk from the bus stop, but really closer to 15. Still, it was pleasant to walk through the neighborhoods and get acquainted with Edgartown before we even reached our hotel.

Common areas were very welcoming and cozy with fireplaces, porch chairs with great views, and a nice on-site restaurant and bar.

We stayed in rooms both in the Governor Mayhew building and the main building. The rooms were generally worn and not well maintained with poor cleaning staff. Our room in the Governor Mayhew building was particularly bad with ants in the bathroom (coming in and out of the light switch), a dirty towel in the bathtub upon arrival, stains on the carpet, very damp/moldy smell in the room, no heat in the room (it was 39 degrees outside, we were given a space heater), very worn furniture, old slumpy mattresses, etc. Elevator was out of service in this building for our entire stay. I can go on and on. We were eventually transferred to a room in the main building which was in better condition but still was not well cleaned (there were 3 sets of half used toiletries left in the shower from previous guests, dust on the baseboards, dirty carpets under the bed). We had to visit the front desk daily to have room keys reprogrammed, we were told "that always happens". The gym area was also dirty and there were no towels, paper towels, or any cleaning supplies in sight; very disturbing. Needless to say, both my husband and I were sick with viral colds by the time we left this hotel. Very disappointed with the quality here and definitely would not return.

The view from the dining room, the Hotel's location, and the small enclosed porch that allowed a chap to smoke a cigar sitting comfortably outside.
