Personalized waterfront cottages

The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin, a Nantucket Island Resorts property, is as close as you can get to the water on this charming island, without boarding a boat. Its rooms, which range from studio lofts to three-bedroom cottages, occupy one of the most unique and bustling locations on the island: Nantucket Boat Basin’s Old South, Straight and Swain’s wharves. Each of the 29 picturesque, shingled units is situated on one of these wharves and provides views for miles. Checking in to a room on the 240-slip Boat Basin, also a part of Nantucket Island Resorts, is a source of joy for anyone even remotely charmed by shiny yachts (and with Nantucket Sound shimmering in the background, who isn’t?). The waterfront location also puts a plethora of seafood restaurants and upscale shops in your backyard — a backyard that, thanks to The Cottages & Lofts’ complimentary bicycles and beach bus, couldn’t be easier to explore.

Complimentary is a welcome buzzword here. Kids make out exceptionally well at the family-friendly hotel, with snow cones, fishing poles and tackle boxes, beach toys and surfboards for the taking. Pets are just as welcome. You’ll swoon at your cat or dog’s welcome amenity, a goodie bag of toys topped with a silver tag engraved with your pet’s name on one side and the Nantucket hotel’s contact information on the other.

Details are important at The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin, and this philosophy extends to your room. Whether you stay in the new Crow’s Nest loft with its spacious second-floor deck or one of the 12 “Woof Cottages” reserved for those with pet guests, you’ll enjoy your own kitchen — there’s a full kitchen in all but one unit — plus complimentary Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and luxury linens. With all the comforts of home and amenities of a hotel, The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin is a solid choice for those who love the best of both worlds, with a view that tops it all.
