  • The one-, two- and three-bedroom cottages, which are the resort’s premier accommodations
  • The elegant restaurants, Henry’s and Lighthouse Grill


An island icon since 1891, the historic Harbor View Hotel occupies a prized waterfront location at the end of Edgartown’s North Water Street and features unrivaled views of Edgartown Lighthouse. The shingled property is an easy five-minute walk from downtown Edgartown, so guests can frolic at the beach by day and dine in town at night—all without driving, a rarity in Martha’s Vineyard. And the on-site amenities provide little reason to leave; the property features an outdoor pool, fitness center, yoga classes, Children’s Program and multiple dining venues, including Henry’s, an elegant gastro-pub, and Lighthouse Grill, a family-friendly venue with stunning views.

The 114 guest rooms, suites and cottages are incredibly varied, so selecting the proper room is crucial. The chic cottages are the newest and most luxurious accommodations thanks to a bevy of amenities; the one-, two- and three- bedroom options include a washer/dryer, outdoor shower, kitchenette, fireplace and many feature a private porch. The historic main building is home to a number of accommodations that are ideal for those who want water views and don’t require the space of a cottage, and basic hotel rooms are located in the Governor Mayhew building.
