The Tidewater may have the best location on Vinalhaven. It sits atop Carver's Harbor, looking south, and has a view of the entire cove. One night we were treated to a beautiful moonlit view of the bay, with the tall-masted ships glowing in the moonlight....More

We stayed here last summer for a “celebration of life” service for a dear friend on the island with whom we have visited for years. It was such a special little place right in the center of town on this gorgeous island. Phil, the owner,...More

Tidewater was the perfect place for us to spend the weekend in Vinalhaven. It’s in walking distance of good restaurants, the bar, coffee shops and cute stores. It’s also run by the most kind staff. We did not have a pet friendly room but the...More

Great spot, the motel is a bit pricey but the people are great and the location is awesome. We were there the 18th of June and the town was not quite open for business yet for the summer. The room was a bit dated but...More

About
Description
The Tidewater is built on a bridge separating Carver's Harbor to the south from Carver's Pond, its tidal estuary, to the north. The same rush of ocean water coming and going right under your harborside room once More powered a blacksmith shop and grist mill on the site. Few views can equal those at The Tidewater and few places are as relaxing; the ebb and flow is nature's own sedative. Still, the world's most productive lobster fleet, anchored right outside your window, gets an early start, so you may not want to sleep in. If you want to be closer to the water, you'll have to get wet. Less
