This is one of those, where the setting is so lovely, accommodation comes second. Nevertheless, Harbour view is nice. Not being unkind when I say service is enthusiastic, but sub professional. Loved it all.

The property fits snugly into a corner overlooking the lighthouse and Chappaquiddick, a nice stroll to "town." Wonderful wrap-around porch. The main inn is far more costly than the hotel rooms in the attached building in the back so I presume they're very nice. The room was substandard, especially in comparison: small, outdated, with a closet door that stuck. They... More

The best MV has to offer. Loved the quaintness of a fairly large property. A great history worth reading about ...... location is perfect by being at the end of Edgartown and yet walking distance to most everything you would want to peruse. Love the little beach across the water from Chappy and the Edgartown Lighthouse. Really like Henry's Bar... More

Since 1891, this historic hotel retains all the charm of an old seaside hotel while becoming a modern resort-type hotel. The accommodations types are plentiful. Even a standard room is very spacious and well appointed. The hotel staff is attentive. You can sit on the front porch in a rocker and see the classic white Edgartown Lighthouse; the view is... More

My husband and I stayed at the Harbor View Hotel on a Friday night in September. We had a king room in the main building overlooking the swimming pool. The room was pleasant though the lack of screens made it impossible to open the windows without inviting in the mosquitos. We were forced to use the AC even though it... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice in the past few years - both have been for long weekends in August. The location is great. You can walk to everything in Edgartown and still feel away from things with the view of the water and lighthouse. I especially enjoy the little beach in front of the property that no... More

Returning after 15 years, we were delighted to find the hotel and the island little changed. Location of the Harborview is absolutely the best, close to restaurants, shops, and the port. Sitting on the porch watching boats, fishermen and the lighthouse is mesmerizing and serene especially when tour groups depart. With beautiful fall weather, we were constantly outside, a 5-star...

This was our first ever trip to the VY so we didn't know what to expect. Our room was located in the Mayhew building on the third floor over looking the pool. It was a bit of a job lugging the cases up the stairs but worth it for a lovely room with 2 very comfy beds, beautiful linen and... More

I had the pleasure of staying her in September as part of an escorted tour vacation. The original itinerary had one night here but that had been changed and we were there for two. I was in the Mayhew building with a balcony overlooking the pool area. Initially it was annoying to me that I had to use an external... More

We stayed here for business and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The accommodations for the meetings were wonderful. Food was fantastic and freshly made. You can walk to everything in town and the property sits right across from the water and lighthouse. Lovely front porch with lots of rockers. Great service as well. The only downside were the bathrooms... More
