Good docks, great staff and location! Highly recommend for big boats if you’re in Edgartown. Plenty of water and well protected.

Perfect. Except no power. Shower not ideal. Love Ed.

I have been there many times. I am a big fan of the Ed, his staff and how the docks are set up. They make it easy.

Very accommodating dock master.

I just can't say enough about how great my stay was at Harborside. The location was awesome. Just steps away from downtown Edgartown. You step off the dock and you are right there in the middle of everything. You couldn't ask for more. The dockstaff at Harborside is outstanding. Ed, the Dockmaster, in particular was awesome. My only criticism (albeit minor) was that they do not offer electric service, and their WIFI signal was weak. Note that you can use your generator at the dock, and so the lack of electric service was a minor inconvenience. Overall I cannot say enough about how great this place is. I strongly recommend Harborside to others. Remember to reserve your dockspace as early in the season as possible. As you can expect, it fills up fast.

Thanks for your kind review.

by Martin A. - Verified user on Oct 10, 2022
Ed is an exceptional and kind individual. Made sure to keep our hull safe with extra horizontal fenders between our boat and pilings at the dock. And very knowledgeable about the history of the area and restaurants. Great man.

It's a great spot and high quality dock space if you can get in. They are usually filled up and sold out, but we got lucky on a beautiful Saturday in September. The location can't be beat, conveniently walk to everything in Edgartown.

by Luke R. - Verified user on Aug 28, 2022
Great service, great accommodations by the entire staff and residents

by robert k. - Verified user on Aug 19, 2022
Great wonderful staff. Great harbor master. Great dock master. I recommend Harborside Inn and Marina to all boaters. They do not have electric connections on the dock, however, their dockmaster and team are terrific. Perfectly great location for a day trip or all night. My favorite stop. bob karam

by Bill M. on Aug 03, 2022
Dockmaster Ed is exceptional. Friendly and knowledgeable and very helpful. Best in MV!

by Joe L. on Jul 25, 2022
Exceptional - very accommodating & great dock staff!

by Frederick V. on Jul 17, 2022
Many problems- 1) incredibly overpriced -my 28' sailboat was 375$/night 2)arrogant, capricious, mendacious, entitled, unprofessional, and condescending dock master - he exists in this little kingdom simply because he can. He canceled my reservation, made weeks in avance, simply because he took a dislike to me, leaving me with no backup. Dock space is at such a premium in Edgartown that dock masters are allowed to behave like this. Recommendation: Do NOT use. AVOID at all cost. Repeat: AVOID at all cost. Use the Harbormaster, whose staff are polite, gentlemanly/ladylike, professional and accommodating.

Perfect location in Edgartown. Hotel was very accommodating and perfect for my family 5. Took every precaution for C19. Dock staff very helpful and courteous. Only draw back, no power but no a deal breaker! Will be booking again for next summer!

by Allan S. on Aug 02, 2020
These guys are a class act. We brought out of towners for a visit and I have to say, the staff made our approach feel very special.

by Patrick M. - Verified user on Aug 01, 2020
Really nice dock hand!

by Dave M. on Jul 17, 2020
The Harborside dock is the best place to be on the entire island of Martha's Vineyard. Conveniently located in downtown Edgartown right on the harborfront. Team of Ed and Nick were terrific the week we were there over the 4th of July. Always helpful when you needed them. A big upside is you can use the Harborside pool when you dock there. Great people...great spot.

Location, location, location! No better or closer spot to access downtown Edgartown’s restaurants and shops. And bonus, dock staff are professionals.

Ed and Nick run the most efficient operation on the cape and islands. They are always welcoming, professional and take good care of the boat. I highly recommend them.

Expensive slip without electricity, but we knew that going in. It’s a a great spot. The dock master Ed is great.

by Peter W. on Aug 17, 2019
Outstanding Dock Master (Capt Ed) and a great location in downtown Edgartown. Just be aware there’s no electricity so you need to run a GenSet.

by James J. - Verified user on Aug 11, 2019
Great location. Nice dock. They don’t advertise that there is no dockside power so everyone is on generators. A large yacht next to us had a loud generator running and exhausting right next to our cabin all night.

by Andrea R. - Verified user on Aug 07, 2019
The tiny marina is in the best of edgartown location. The docking help were very nice and helpful. Unfortunately theres little info that tells you there is NO ELECTRICITY (even when you request it as part of reservation form). We needed to run the generators for several days. I will say the manager, dockmaster was very understanding and addressed our issue in a compromising way. Thank you.

All good- just too expensive.

Great location easy on and off . Dock staff very helpful and courteous

by brad h. - Verified user on Jun 07, 2019
The hotel facility is very good. However the Marina does not provide dockside power not showers for boats staying at the dock. None of this information was on their website. I would appreciate the consideration of a discount based on the lack of Dockage facilities.

by Brian M. - Verified user on Aug 04, 2018
Dockmaster was helpful in assisting us navigating to dock. East tie up. Since we stayed overnight we had use of the outdoor swimming pool. No electric hookup, only water at dock.

Dock Manager, Joe, was a great help
