We, unfortunately, cannot park oversized vehicles, including RVs or larger than normal SUVs or trucks and trailers. Please contact the concierge in advance if you are planning on bringing more than 1 vehicle per guest room, as our parking space is limited and we may not be able to accommodate an extra vehicle.

The HarbourView Inn does not offer self-parking for its guests, but should you opt to park on your own there is a public parking garage located at 1 Cumberland Street.
