Quaint Waterfront Vacations for Families & Couples Alike

The Cottages at the Boat Basin are the most unique way to experience Nantucket! Set within Nantucket Island's magnificent waterfront and just a short walk from historic downtown, the view from The Cottages is a panorama of sun, sea and boats in Nantucket's busy harbor; all enjoyed from outdoor patios or decks where guests can host outdoor picnics or clambakes. Tour Nantucket Town and stroll down the cobble-stoned streets and narrow lanes of this perfectly preserved whaling seaport, home to fascinating shops, museums and fine restaurants


Nantucket is home to some of the most pristine beaches in the world! Whether you prefer the gentle waters of Nantucket Sound or the wilder ocean waves, Nantucket Island has a beach you will love! Go just beyond the beach for great boating, fishing, seal cruises, whale watching, sailing, yachts, and more!

Pet Friendly

The Cottages at Boat Basin does offer pet-friendly cottage options for those who prefer to travel with their four-legged companion -- prior approval from innkeeper required. Please contact for more information regarding rates and restrictions
