We visited Boston, the Cape and Nantucket last fall for my genealogical research, but also for a second honeymoon for my husband and I. We sought a romantic hideaway, but within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants around the harbor. The Cottages and Lofts worked out perfectly for us! We booked a loft, and received a terrific mid-week special rate. The loft felt like home away from home (though be prepared for steep stairs- about 2 stories worth) set directly above boats and yachts quietly coming and going from the docks... The views, as high as we were, were heavenly. We could see the town, the neighborhoods and their magnificent houses, the sea.... and watched a seal play and fish just below us. It was a feast for the senses... and were impressed by the amenities, terrific bed, modern décor, the beautiful, new kitchen.... We sat and sipped wine on our private deck under the moonlight and felt all alone... It seemed like it must be the most quiet place we'd been to maybe ever in our lives. This was an amazing first experience of Nantucket, and we traversed as much as we could by foot! You can take advantage of all the special features this property offers (a bus for getting around? we never tried but it would've been nice for exploring more...) and we would LOVE to return, hoping to stay at the Lofts again soon!
