We decided to make a last minute trip to Nantucket with our granddaughters. We also wanted to take our dog. The Cottages at the Boat Basin had a perfect two bedroom place right on the docks so we could walk to everything. And they are dog and kid friendly. Staff could not have been nicer--helpful with the room, helpful finding...

We spent Easter Week at the Woof Cottages with our two pugs. From the moment we arrived we had such a wonderful time. The staff was amazing, the Veronica cottage was the best spot on the island. Even the crisp air couldnt stop us from opening up the barn doors and enjoying the view. We can't wait to go back!!!

Staff was very pleasant, welcoming and helpful. Unique and fun location right on the wharf. Good quality appliances, nice amenities like free bike use, movies, popcorn, bottled waters and luggage care at both ends of the stay while exploring Nantucket. Highly recommended.

We were at the cottages for about 12 days and really, really enjoyed ourselves. The staff made our time very enjoyable by keeping everything so neat and clean, stepping out of our door to the peir and seeing all the beautiful boats and wonderful waters was very relaxing.

The staff was awesome. They were more than happy to help with anything we wanted or needed. The room was super clean and comfy. Location was the best. We could walk everywhere in town. Great views and sunsets over the water.

We stayed in Pawana Cottage for 3 nights. The location is perfect and view is great of the Marina. The cottage was dated and kind of rustic. From the pics on the web site it looked updated and very nice but the furnishings are older and bathroom very small. Having the loft and downstairs bedroom was great and the kitchenette...

This is the best time to visit Nantucket. If you can visit during the week, hotel prices are half price. The staff at the Boat Basin were outstanding. They went out of their way to assist my mother in law, by brining a golf cart to the room and shuttling her around the property. Fantastic trip.

We very much enjoyed our stay at The Cottages. The rooms (literally cottages) are scattered along the wharf and most have outside areas where you can sit, relax, and enjoy the atmosphere of the wharf. Choose your cottage carefully as they are different sizes. Aurora is the best - it has two bedrooms, a large living room, dining area, full...
