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.

    A True Classy, Accomodating, and Flexible Venue (Even During a Pandemic!)

    We can't say enough good things about this venue!! The Harbor View was an amazing partner to work with in the many months leading up to what would have been our wedding date on April 25, 2020. From the very first day we toured the venue with Makenzie, we had nothing but the best experience. Atmosphere, quality of service, breathtaking views, food, amenities - you name it, the Harbor View has it. Makenzie and her team were incredibly quick to respond to any questions we had and always flexible and fair. We enjoyed an incredible tasting back in October and were able to show our families why we fell in love with this venue.

    Our wedding was originally scheduled for April 25, 2020 - unfortunately we had to postpone to September and then ultimately cancel due to COVID-19, but we cannot say enough good things about Makenzie & the rest of her team. They were all so kind and transparent with us as we evaluated our options. When we ultimately decided not to move forward with a scaled back September wedding, we received a full refund in less than 30 days - really incredible and says so much about what an amazing partner they are to work with.

    Even though we aren't getting married there, we look forward to celebrating many future anniversaries at the Harbor View!

    Thoughtful & professional and the kindest staff!

    Makenzie and the Harbor View team went above and beyond our expectations, even through planning and replanning during Covid. Two years later, the staff was so kind, patient and made everything a masterpiece! Makenzie Wall is so organized, thoughtful and a true professional -- she is one of a kind. We couldn't recommend the Harbor View enough!

    An incredible venue and staff that made our decision very easy

    Our goal was to find a venue near the water, where we could have our ceremony and reception, and had after party options within walking distance. Check, check, check. My wife and I searched all over Eastern Massachusetts but the first venue we visited was the Harbor View. It should have been the last.
    The Harbor View itself is a beautiful venue. The view from the gazebo where we got married is even more incredible. And downtown Edgartown is quintessential New England.
    Makenzie and her team were available from the moment we reached out. She was prepared with a detailed packet that covered everything from food and drink options to suggested vendors for whatever the Harbor View does not offer (from DJs to florists). Everything was transparent, including costs, which is so important for a wedding so you know what to expect, and the Harbor View team always had helpful thoughts and suggestions. We can’t say enough good things about them.
    We were able to keep all of our decorations and flowers simple to emphasize the venue. Our guests raved about the hors d'oeuvres, dinner, and the open bar. Some joked the wedding should be in a magazine.
    Long story short: If you want a coastal New England wedding at an incredible venue, your first call should be to the Harbor View Hotel. You won’t regret it.
