A Very Vineyard Valentine: Harbor View Hotel Celebrates Romance With Dinner and an Overnight Stay

EDGARTOWN, Mass. — Though Martha’s Vineyard is world-renowned for its pristine beaches and waterfront fun, the peace and quiet of its off-season provides the perfect opportunity for couples to escape life’s hectic pace and truly reconnect with one another. This Valentine’s Day, Harbor View Hotel, one of the Vineyard’s most iconic establishments, beckons guests to enjoy a serene island retreat and celebrate the most romantic day of the year with a gourmet three-course dinner and an overnight stay.

On Friday, Feb. 14, Executive Chef Nathan Gould will serve up an indulgent prix fixe dinner in Water Street, the hotel’s award-winning fine-dining restaurant, where guests can enjoy panoramic views of Edgartown Harbor and Lighthouse. For $48 per person (excluding tax and gratuity), diners can feast on entrees like Sous-Vide Local Lobster and Pan Roasted Pork Tenderloin, and decadent desserts such as Chocolate Macaroons and Truffles.

Those looking to make a night of it can reserve a cozy guestroom at a starting rate of $179 per night, which includes Valentine’s dinner for two. To find out more about Harbor View Hotel or to reserve a room, please call (800) 225-6005 or visit www.harbor-view.com.
