Fodor's Expert Review Harbor View Hotel and Resort

131 N. Water St., Edgartown, Massachusetts, 02539, USA

A $15 million revamp in 2019 of this historic hotel, composed of a gray-shingled, 1891 Victorian building with wraparound veranda and a gazebo, plus two other historic buildings, and cottages, gave new life to a popular island mainstay. Whether you stay in the main house, the Roxana, or a cottage, guests can expect Frette linens, plush robes, Molton Brown toiletries, use of beach towels, and perks like complimentary use of bicycles, shuttles to town or the beach, a saltwater pool, and hotel-led activities. The extensive children's summer program has a full roster of activities for kids; also offered are yoga and fitness classes, as well as lawn games for the whole family.
