Waterfront Lodging on Nantucket - Cottages by the Docks
Set against the cool blue waters of Nantucket, The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin offer an unparalleled harbor experience. Embrace the beauty of Nantucket in charming cottages and lofts along the island's magnificent waterfront. Soak up panoramic views of the historic harbor with sails and sunshine, a scene best enjoyed from outdoor patios or decks where guests host outdoor picnics and clambakes. Our waterfront Nantucket hotel is the ideal vacation refuge mere minutes from historic downtown and a short stroll from the ferry dock and Children's Beach. Enjoy shopping and dining in town, walk to beautiful beaches, explore historic sights, and set sail on the water. Stroll down the cobblestone streets and narrow lanes of Nantucket Town, a historic whaling seaport with fascinating shops, museums, and restaurants. Our cottages and lofts stand within feet of the dock, where you can hop on a boat and enjoy whale watching, fishing, and seal cruises.
For guests arriving by air, Nantucket is very accessible. Many cities offer seasonal air travel to the island, including Boston, Providence, New York, and D.C.
Regular ferry service is available from Hyannis, Massachusetts on the Hy-Line Ferry and the Steamship Authority. Both companies offer one-hour, high-speed ferry service and the Steamship Authority offers the car ferry. We discourage our guests from bringing automobiles on the island. Let us know if you are planning on arriving via the Hy-Line ferry, and we can arrange a complimentary golf cart pick up.
