About Harbor View Hotel

The Harbor View Hotel is a waterfront hotel with a restaurant for couples’ weddings in the greater Cape Cod, Massachusetts area. This elegant destination wedding location features a classy garden space with a white arbor and views of the water. Couples can celebrate in the mansion-like grey house or a massive tent on the lawn. This venue is located in Martha’s Vineyard, approximately 20 minutes from the Flying Horses carousel.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can invite as many as 250 guests to their wedding at the Harbor View Hotel. An enchanting wedding day can begin with a ceremony in the gardens. Here, chairs are placed on the lush green grasses of the lawn for guests, while couples meet under an expansive white wedding arbor. The space under this white frame is paved with bricks and the surrounding natural landscaping transports couples and guests alike to a fairy tale space. Couples can host a more intimate wedding reception right on the hotel’s deck. This deck features a connected gazebo that makes the perfect setting for a ceremony. While guests enjoy a refreshing cocktail reception, couples can sneak off to take stunning seaside wedding portraits on the coast, just steps from this venue. The Harbor View Hotel also has numerous spaces in the gardens and hotel itself for wedding pictures. Couples can then celebrate a reception at the hotel. They can dine and dance under a massive wedding set up on the lawns of the garden, or they can enjoy one of the main elegant spaces inside the hotel. The restaurant features white columns and bright windows.

    Vow Renewal at the Harborview: Highly Recommend this Venue

    I can't begin to thank Mackenzie and her team for making our dream become a reality. Mackenzie and her staff were very attentive from the planning phase all the way to the day of our 10 year Vow Renewal. In the planning phase, she was able to supply me with a list of vendors and walked me through each step in a systematic fashion. On the day of our Vow Renewal, her staff were very attentive and followed through with our vision. I would highly recommended Mackenzie and her team at the Harborview.

    Fairytale Wedding Experience at the Harbor View Hotel

    While many couples decided to postpone their wedding dates until 2021, my husband and I were confident that we would still be able to have our dream wedding at the Harbor View Hotel. The amazing relationship we formed with Events Coordinator Makenzie Wall during the planning process gave us immense confidence that despite the changes handed to us by the virus, the responsiveness, professionalism and creativity of Makenzie and her team would allow us to still have an unforgettable wedding weekend. Their dedication to ensuring our September 26, 2020 wedding cannot be overstated! We feel so lucky to have had our wedding festivities at the hotel and were truly blown away by how flawless the rehearsal dinner, wedding reception and post-wedding brunch were. The team created a seamless and memorable weekend for us and our families and we cannot recommend them enough!

    It's no secret that the Harbor View Hotel is an absolutely breathtaking place to get married - from the picturesque waterfront and lighthouse views to the perfectly manicured landscaping - everything about the hotel is classic and perfect. The kindness and professionalism of the staff however, is what will stay with us forever. We truly attribute the seamlessness of all the wedding events to their hospitality, attention to detail, and genuine kindness. They are committed to making your experience amazing – and they certainly did for us and our families!

    Makenzie and her service team were with us the entire weekend – incredibly well-prepared, hospitable, and accommodating to all of our guests needs. Absolutely every detail was handled with immense attention to detail and care. From the signature cocktails to the impeccable menu (all of our guests are still raving about the food!), we were so impressed by the quality of the meals as well as the service. Guests were never without a drink and every need and request was met with a helpful and friendly demeanor. The Harbor View Hotel also has strong relationships with the vendor community on Martha’s Vineyard so I felt totally comfortable knowing that Makenzie would be in close contact with integral vendors such as, the photographer and florist for any “day of” last minute details or changes.

    There was never a doubt in our mind that hosting a wedding at the Harbor View Hotel would be unforgettable, but I can say wholeheartedly that they made our wedding an absolute fairytale and we are still gushing over how amazing it was. Run – don’t walk to say “I Do” at the View!!
