Veranda at The Harbor View
The Quintessential Martha’s Vineyard Experience
Since 1891 people have been traveling here…
Since 1891, our guests enjoyed the pristine views that the Harbor View Hotel offers; graceful sloops gliding by with the wind in their sails, the natural beauty of Chappaquiddick Island, and shimmering ocean waters lit by the morning sun. The peace and quiet our Veranda offers is disturbed only by the occasional sound of the wake and rigging of passing sail boats, or summer porch laughter carried on the breeze. Years ago, the Harbor View Hotel resolved to permanently preserve the experience of the wrap-around Veranda experience to exclude all activities which could detract from the peaceful repose of the Veranda.
For this reason, we ask that you, your friends, and your family enjoy the Veranda peacefully, without sound amplification of any kind. Please also remember that our service staff are more than happy to join you in conversation, but they are not able to provide any service of drinks, food or activities on the Veranda. This is due to the preservation ordinance set forth by the historic town of Edgartown and the hotel’s surrounding community. Our service staff will maintain and clean the areas regularly, but cannot provide beverage service or refills.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work to preserve and protect the Harbor View Hotel and all its experiences for present and future generations.
Scott Little, General Manager
