EDGARTOWN, MASSACHUSETTS PROPERTY EST. 1891 On the cusp of the 20th century, excited residents of Martha’s Vineyard flocked to see a new resort hotel on Starbuck’s Neck in the days before the hotel’s grand opening on July 23, 1891. The advertisements touted that Harbor View Hotel was built “on a generous scale”—and, indeed, it was. Now, just as in 1891, guests enjoy the resort’s luxurious accommodations and stunning panoramic views of Edgartown Harbor, Edgartown Lighthouse, and Chappaquiddick Island from a sprawling 300-foot-long veranda. This landmark hotel is located just a few steps from the heart of Edgartown, where charming 19th-century whaling captain’s cottages line the streets, and is open year-round. The gracious wooden rocking chairs on the hotel’s veranda are comfortable posts from which to enjoy panoramic views of the harbor, lighthouse, and distant Chappaquiddick. ORIGINAL HOTEL CLASSIC SERVICE TRADITIONAL DÉCOR SHINGLE STYLE AMENITIES 114 guestrooms, suites, and cottages. Each with air-conditioning, mini-refrigerator, safe, and iron and board.
