My family loves visiting Nantucket, MA, which is just a short drive and ferry ride from our home west of Boston. When we visit, we generally look for a hotel that offers lots of space for us to spread out, and is convenient to the town (we don’t usually have a car with us). This past winter, during the Nantucket Christmas Stroll, we stayed at a condo in Harborview Place located right in the town center.
The Condos at Harborview Nantucket
Harborview Nantucket offers ten waterfront condos, all within a short walk to the ferry terminals and the town center. While we were in the largest, the three-bedroom, three-bathroom Mainsail, there are also one-bedroom and two-bedroom properties. All of the buildings offer a full, luxurious kitchen, WiFi, cable, and patios. There’s also access to a BBQ grill, and a path that goes directly down to the private beach.
The buildings are decorated with a calming, clean beach theme, and the beds are incredibly comfortable. The showers are also amazing – jets shoot at you all down the front of the shower. Although we had lots of things on our agenda for the weekend, we had a hard time leaving the condo for the day – it was just that nice.
Amenities at Harborview Nantucket
Harborview Nantucket offers complimentary transportation to and from the ferry terminals and a full-service concierge in the summer to help you plan your family vacation.
Prices and Reservations
As you may imagine, prices throughout Nantucket skyrocket in the summer season. Expect to pay $1,100-$2,500 per night in the peak season, while rates decrease to $575-$900 in the slow season. Late spring and early fall are a great time to visit, when rates are lower and the crowds on the island decrease. You can compare rates on Hotels.com, Expedia or other online booking sites.
