The Captain’s Cottages--the Harbor View Hotel's luxury condo/suites--are the latest section of the famed Edgartown hotel to undergo a major renovation.
After welcoming islanders and guests for more than 130 years, the hotel was recently renovated and refurbished by its new owners who poured more than $15-million into a wide range of upgrades.
The completion of the Cottages' make-over represent yet another milestone in the owners' efforts to transform the hotel into a world-class, luxury travel destination. (See awards below to see how they have succeeded.)
The Captain Collins Cottage
And now, one of them--the Captain Collins Cottage--is for sale. Featuring 2-BRs/2BAs, this first-floor residence offers fresh and inviting living spaces with furnishings that evoke Vineyard style and life lived near the sea. Complete with its own outdoor shower. See more information and photos here.

Each cottage received about $30,000 in improvements, including glossy white linens, fresh wicker and nautical stripes. And, new, upscale furnishings helped create a classic New England ambiance accented by a gas fireplace and kitchenette.
The cottages are just a short walk down a blossom-filled walkway from the Harbor View's main building. Edgartown’s center with its restaurants, movies, and shops is a comfortable walk away, too.
Downtown with White Picket Fences
The cottages' exterior has been burnished, too. Here you'll find their classic New England architecture embraced by beautiful landscaping and white picket fences.
The cottages also feature relaxing front porches that overlook the hotel pool and great lawn.
Featuring one, two, and three bedrooms, they are available for stays of one night and longer (and occasionally come up for purchase).
The newly upgraded residences are maintained and marketed just like a luxury hotel suite year-round and are in high demand, according to the hotel manager.
Vacationers can now find the Harbor View Hotel and the Cottages on luxury travel networks such as Virtuoso, Signature, and American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts.
Captain's Cottages: Condos with Hotel Amenities
While the Captain's Cottages look and feel like an upscale condominium, they, in fact, enjoy all the benefits of traditional hotel services.
Daily maid service, housekeeping, room service, concierge, daily breakfast, use of a luxury car and more are all part of a stay, whether it is a guest generated by the hotel or the owner.
A 'Best New Hotel'
The Harbor View's renovations have not gone unnoticed. The hotel has been recognized by numerous national publications and the travel media, including Travel & Leisure, which featured it in its ‘2021 Editors’ Picks of the Best New Hotels in the World.’
