Historic Marthas Vineyard Harbor Hotels Historic Martha's Vineyard Harbor Hotels welcome guests with their unique charm and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. Lovingly cared for, many of these inns date back to the 1800s when whaling captains resided on the island.

Edgartown's only waterfront hotel, the Harborside Inn, is comprised of seven buildings, some of which were the homes of 19th century whaling captains. The outdoor, waterfront pool and many of the luxurious rooms have picturesque views of the harbor and private docks. The Harborside Inn is only a stroll away from fine dinning, art galleries, and shops.

Also in Edgartown is the Harbor View Hotel. Built in 1891, it overlooks the Edgartown Lighthouse. Ocean views and vineyard decor keep generations returning to this historic hotel. Accommodations are available in the cottages, suites, main building, and Governor Mayhew Building.

guest's individual needs.
