Captain Morse House

80 N Water St, Edgartown, MA 02539


M-Sa: 9-6

The Captain Morse House is the perfect venue to host a wedding or event.

Our large lawn and patio can accommodate up to 150 standing and 100 seated.

Host your event under our three magnificent Linden trees or under a magical Sail Cloth Tent.

We can comfortably host 100 for a sit-down dinner and 150 invitations for a stand-up cocktail party.  The beautiful 32′ x 70′ or 30′ x 50′ Sperry Tent works perfectly in the yard.

We are first and foremost a luxury vacation rental home that occasionally allows our guests to host elegant and tasteful events. Only a few of our guests are allowed to host an event at the Captain Morse House each year. We are in a beautiful neighborhood so events at the house need to be classy and low impact. This is not the venue for a blowout event.

Popular events we have hosted include weddings, vow renewals, celebrations of life, clambakes, university fundraisers, class reunions, corporate retreats, family reunions, golf outings, birthdays, anniversaries, to name a few.

The Captain Morse House has one of Edgartown’s largest backyards fronting historic Morse Street. The yard is also almost four feet above the street grade which allows for great views down Morse St. to the harbor and west for the sunset. Photographers love our natural light at the end of the day and our three huge Linden trees.

Events must end and the house be quiet at 10:00 pm. For late-night entertainment, there are several great places downtown within easy walking distance like the Wharf Pub, Atlantic, the Port Hunter, and the Seafood Shanty.

The order for booking is to secure the house for lodging first and then fill out the Event Application Form once your plans are complete. Once co-signed by the landlord and tenant, this agreement provides a modification to the Property Lease Section 1 granting permission for an event.
