The Cottages were the perfect place to stay on my first trip to Nantucket. We stayed for two nights on in the "Upper Deck" cottage. The cottage had everything we needed and the location was ideal, located in the heart of downtown, convenient to the ferry, shopping and restaurants. If you are looking for a real Nantucket experience I would...

If you can plan ahead and are OK with paying a bit more, these cottages are perfect for the best way to experience Nantucket. Close access to everything (shops, restaurants, boats, steamships/hi-speed, car rentals, shuttles, etc.). We had a wonderful stay in a perfect cottage with 2 rooms, great area, kitchen and bathroom. Loved early morning walks along the water...

Having been to Nantucket numerous times, but never having stayed in a hotel, I was excited to stay at The Cottages and Lofts down on the water at the boat basin.

Nantucket is a dog friendly island so if you're bringing your dog, this is the place to stay. They provide everything your furry friend might need - bed and dishes (all appropriately sized for the pet), poop bags, toys and some treats! My little one even got a personalized dog tag. We had a top floor room which offered great...
