We are returning patrons of The Cottages and stayed at Meridian for the first time this recent visit. I think I'm in love with this cottage! The large open living area and sliding glass doors opening to the deck overlooking the marina was just paradise to wake up to each morning. Our dog loved it too! I can't say enough about the cleanliness of this property as we have stayed in many pet friendly places in the past and this surpasses them all by far. Rain or shine, there is never a lack of things to do on the island. Can't wait for our next trip! When's the ferry leaving?...

Room Tip: Cottages on the cobblestone street behind Swain's Wharf are the quietest and more private as there is no foot traffic.

From the second we stepped off the ferry we were taken care of by the Cottages & Lofts staff. Picked up in a van, taken to check in and directed to our cottage (Catawba) located on Straight Wharf right behind the Gazebo it was the perfect location for us 20-somethings. Walkable from the best bars and restaurants on the island we didn't have to worry about renting a car to get around or even calling a cab since we were in the heart of the fun! 3 BR cottage for 3 couples was perfect, 2 full bathrooms and a full kitchen (we cooked one night and all the amenities were there). Highly recommended for a weekend filled with fun (and wine!!) on Nantucket.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! I am so glad that you had such a nice time in our Catawba loft. The lofts at our property are such perfectly placed hidden gems, aren't they? Many do not realize that we offer lofts on top of Vineyard Vines, The Black Dog Shop, the Provisions shop behind the Gazebo, and even on top of the Hyline office on Strait Wharf!

Thank you for staying with us- We sure hope to see you back!

We spent a week in Kittiwake cottage with our two adult children, and we all had a wonderful time. The cottage is at the end of the wharf and has a great view of the harbour. It's an easy walk to shops and restaurants, and there are bicycles available. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The two bedrooms are on the lower level and the upper level is accessed by a narrow spiral staircase which could be difficult for some people. The staff were all very pleasant and accommodating. Our stay at the Boat Basin was a really different and fun experience!

Thank you for your kind review of the Cottages & Lofts! I am so happy to hear that you loved Kittywake. It's such a unique upside down styled cottage -the living rooms placement on the 2nd floor certainly offers a spectacular ocean view for the whole family to enjoy.

The location is absolutely perfect - though I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for a relaxed/quiet getaway. You're in the middle of all of the fun - but that also means hearing it (they do thoughtfully provide ear plugs!). The Crows Nest is beautifully decorated and central to it all - that said the three flight climb up can be a little challenging after a few beverages so be careful of that. The patio offers gorgeous views of the harbor.

Thank you for your review of the Cottages! I am so happy that you enjoyed Crows Nest- it is a personal favorite of mine! Once you master the stairs on up you are certainly in for a treat, as it is one of the best views on the island.

I hope to see you again on the Crows Nest porch in the near future!

To celebrate our 10-year anniversary, my boyfriend and I took a vacation to one of our favorite places, Nantucket. Every time we have visited the Island, we have stayed at the Cottages and Lofts at the Boat Basin....they never disappoint. We enjoy being right on the water and seeing all the boats....it is the most tranquil and beautiful place on the Island, in my opinion. We arrived on 5/27 and got one of our favorite cottages, Willet. We have only stayed at Willet and Rambler, and love them both. When we walked in it was quite warm.....could swear the heat was on. We quickly fixed that. This was the first time we experienced using the Keuring coffeemaker. So nice and easy. Love having a full kitchen, utensils and microwave. Love the big screen TV and mostly loved the queen size bed. I only wish they would fix up the bathroom floor a bit....quite a bit worn and stained....otherwise, our 4 nights were heavenly and we look forward to coming back HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Room Tip: Book early.

Thank you so very much for your review of the Cottages. We are so happy that you chose to spend your 10th anniversary with us! It is such a beautiful spot to relax out on the cottage porch and take in the beautiful Nantucket scenery. I truly appreciate your feedback regarding the bathroom floor and will be discussing future renovations with our management team.

I hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you back for your 11th Anniversary next year!
