The apt was cozy with full kitchen ,two baths and a large bedroom upstairs. Patio overlooked the old wharf and the water

Girls long weekend in Nantucket

The Boat Basin Cottages were lovely. My friends and I have visited Nantucket a number of times and we always enjoy the water, the food, and the SHOPPING. During this trip we met Cecil Jackson who works at the Cottages and what a find! Cecil took great care of our group. He was fabulous!

Great views, service, and accommodations!

I stayed here last weekend with my siblings and our Mother to celebrate her birthday. We had the 3 BR cottage “Orion” right on the water. The views were gorgeous, and our cottage offered living space on 2 levels. The bathrooms were bright and updated w/plenty of fluffy white towels, there was a nicely furnished kitchen w/complimentary water bottles, coffee & tea. Good sized living room with comfortable sofa and chairs. Each room had a Mitsubishi A/C and heat unit, they are super efficient and worked very well. We enjoyed excellent service from beginning to end, the golf carts picking us up at the ferry with our luggage was a huge bonus! The desk clerks were extremely helpful. They even left a nice birthday card and chocolates for my Mom, she loved it. I will definitely return!

Absolutely charming, a sailor's dream

These cute cottages offer a unique feel for the island. They are all surrounded by the harbor and they are all cape code style cottages with full kitchens.
TV in the living and bedroom.
The staff was very accommodating from picking us up at the ferry to taking us back the day we left.
* Beds are comfortable, clean and comfortable- is always a plus!
Thank you Randall -

Best Location, Pet-Friendly, Charming!

We stayed at The Cottages over Labor Day weekend with our French Bulldog and you cannot beat the location! It was on the very expensive side, even compared to other hotels in the area over the holiday weekend, but well worth it to have our own little space. They provided dog bowls and a bed so we didn’t have to pack too much for our pup. Nice Cottages and has our own little patio overlooking the boats. Will definitely stay here again! **Note: $49/night pet fee, no more than 2 pets/room, not all Cottages are pet-friendly, they will not service/clean the cottage if your pup is inside.
