“Great location but...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2008

We were so excited to climb the steps to the "Crow's Nest" cottage and see the absolutely fabulous view of the warf from up there. Hundreds (if not thousands) of boats and mega yachts dotted the harbor below and, wow!, what a view! The porch was quite large with a table and chairs that we took full advantage of, getting take-out from the local restaurants and bringing it back to our little private perch. The inside of the cottage has been redone and everything is new including all of the kitchen utensils, linens, furniture, floors, etc. It is charming inside. With everything so great we thought we had found the ultimate hiding place...UNTIL....we discovered that the restaurant downstairs was also a bar and the noise level was horrific until the wee hours of the night. Of course we were there in high season so maybe it is not that way all the time. It was so bad during our visit that we were completely exhausted by the time we left Nantucket. Better be a really sound sleeper or bring heavy duty earplugs if you plan to stay here!
