5 Star Service at a Classic Venue
The Harbor View Hotel is a seriously breathtaking place to get married. Everything from the location, to the hotel's accommodations, and the staff was perfect for our special day.Sent on 11/22/2019
It all starts with the coordinator, Makenzie Wall! Makenzie was open and honest with us as the hotel went through renovations, she helped us select the ideal areas to host our guests for Friday night drinks, the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception, and she was on call for us the entire weekend. Makenzie and her team were incredibly professional and well prepared for anything our wedding party or guests requested. I knew that I could leave anything with Makenzie's team and it would be taken handled with precision and care. Chef Patrice Martineau prepared a delicious meal for our 140 guests and we had really fun bartenders serving drinks all night. The wait and hotel staff were also very helpful and friendly.
In addition to the personnel being on point, the landscaping and outdoor areas of the hotel are beautiful and inviting. Our guests enjoyed the property as well as the short walk to downtown Edgartown and the beach.
Hosting a wedding on Martha's Vineyard is a special experience, hosting your wedding at the Harbor View Hotel on Martha's Vineyard is an unforgettable one.

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.Sent on 11/23/2019

We had an amazing experience with the Harbor View Hotel for our wedding. The venue was beautiful, newly renovated and the views were amazing. Also, the food and service were wonderful. More importantly, the event coordinator, Makenzie Wall, was incredible. She was organized, wonderful to work with and had everything ready for the day. She really knows Martha's Vineyard (travel to and from the island, accommodations and wedding vendors) so planning the wedding from afar was much easier! I cant recommend this venue enough!!Sent on 11/10/2019
