Ah...Edgartown...and The Harborside Inn is better than ever. All 90 rooms have been renovated with heat exchanger air conditioning so you can adjust the temperature. New baths, though small, have granite countertops and tile showers with a built-in seat and quality showerhead and shower wand. New carpet, furniture, new mattresses etc. No smoking and no pets make it safe and pleasant for us guests.
The inn's lovely large grassy floral courtyard with pool and waterfront docks is beautiful in itself. Even more, it's adjacent to Edgartown's shopping, eating out, boating. Right off Main Street on South Water Street the inn includes former whaling captain's homes with bedroom units. Stroll Water Street and you'll see gorgeous homes from the 1800's edged by white picket fences laden with roses, white homes with black shutters, weathered shakes framed in white and window boxes filled with colorful flowers. Picture charming, beautifully landscaped lawns donning orange day lilies against a backdrop of boats lazily moored in Edgartown Harbor. To me, Edgartown is the place to be on Martha's Vineyard and the Harborside Inn is the place to stay.
