Harborview Nantucket opened its doors in 2010 as a hybrid between rental-style cottages and a luxury hotel. Located two blocks from Main Street, this waterfront property has Nantucket’s historic charm infused with modern amenities. The 11 eco-friendly cottages are a minimum of 700 square feet (most are more than 1,000) and may include fireplaces, private mahogany terraces with views of the harbor and private gardens. Each unit has a full kitchen with top-of-the line appliances. Lawn games, board games, paddleboards and kayaks are available for outdoor entertainment, as well as coolers, towels, umbrellas and chairs for the private beach. Transportation from the airport or ferry is included with advance notice.
In the Area
Walking the cobblestone streets of downtown Nantucket and exploring the shops and restaurants is a popular pastime, as is a bike ride along the bluffs, which grant outstanding views. On the other side of the island, Madaket Beach is a gorgeous place to linger and watch the sunset or sample the fresh fish tacos at Millie’s — a legend among the locals. A number of tours are available, including Shearwater Excursions for whale watching and harbor ice cream tours — ideal for families. For an off-the-path experience, rent a jeep and go through the dunes to the Great Point Light; it feels worlds away from the mainland hustle and bustle.
How to Get There
My wife and I have visited Nantucket many times, but have found our perfect location for all future visits. Harborview is a great location with spectacular views of the harbor and their lovely gardens. Very short walk to the center of town. We stayed in the Mainsail cottage, which was perfect for 3 couples. The cottage was new, clean, and well appointed. The staff was attentive to our every need, friendly, and helpful.
We will definitely return to Harborview.
We enjoyed a 6 day stay at Harborview. The staff is second to none and we’d likely come back just for that reason alone. They are knowledgeable and helpful and very gracious. Our cottage was fine for the two of us and our dog. We did have loft space in the cottage which might have worked for a family with a teenager but could not accommodate an adult guest.
Amazing experience at the Harborview Nantucket! Excellent staff, immaculate and confortable room. Beautiful decor. We had the Spinnaker Townhouse. Wonderful location 5-minute walk from Main Street. A great place to stay. We will definitely go back.
