We have stayed at the Cottages and Lofts at the Boat Basin before, it really is a unique location for a few days in Nantucket. We stayed in Falcon which has two very small bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor but with a large family room/kitchen/dining upstairs. The views over the harbor are wonderful with yachts and sailboats as your next-door neighbors. The center of Nantucket town is 250 yards away and the walk to the fast ferry is about the same. The staff at the office are extremely helpful and professional. Beach towels, chairs and bikes available for loan. A free shuttle to the beaches is also available.
Slight negatives are the small bedrooms and only one bathroom in Falcon. For two adults and two older teens it was fine for four nights but might feel a bit cramped if you stay longer. The cottage itself was very clean and well maintained. Housekeeping was great.
If you stay there in the summer expect a little "party noise" from the boats as people entertain onboard, but thats part of the deal (charm?). We will be back.More
