My review is long LONG overdue.
My husband and I got married on Nantucket in June of 2011 and stayed at the Cottages (as well as the White Elephant Residences). However we chose to stay at the Cottages for the week after our wedding for a little getaway since we weren't going to go on a honeymoon until December. For 6 nights we stayed in the Crow's Nest and two nights at the White Elephant Residences. The cottages views blows the residences out of the water!!! (Also, the cottages are cheaper in comparison). The Crows Nest is a studio cottage located up above the boat basin (I want to say on the 3rd floor) and above Slip 14 (bar/restaurant). The cottage is beautifully decorated and very comfortable for a studio. It has a full kitchen, king bed, decent size bathroom, and a not to miss AMAZING view!!! From the Crow's Nest we could actually see where we got married at the Great Harbor Yacht Club making it even that much more special for us! The boat basin was extremely accommodating and even had a beach bus to take you (and any gear you might need) to any beach of your liking. ALL the staff are amazing! Including the "Helper" golden retriever :) (or maybe he was a lab--still super cute)...The cottages were/are perfect for my husband and I because we like to be right in the middle of it all and that is exactly what you get at the Cottages. There is nothing better than waking up in the Crow's Nest and having a cup of coffee in the morning watching all the boaters go in and out of the marina...I also need to mention that they have keurigs in every cottage...Great touch!!! Also, If you are staying at the cottages a car won't be necessary, you are literally right in town and walking distance to all the amazing restaurants Nantucket has to offer!
Later in the 2011 summer we also stayed in the "John Jay" (1 bedroom) and the "Three Brothers" (two bedroom when we brought our son)... All times we had the same amazing service and every view and cottage was just stunning! We will be back this June for our anniversary and can't wait!!!
