nantucket cottages = perfect location

January 14th, 2011


The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin has been recognized on the 2011 Condé Nast Traveler “Gold List,” receiving a perfect score with a rating of “100 out of 100” in the location category.  Overall, The Cottages received a score of 90.8 on the 2011 Gold List, which is determined by the magazine’s Readers’ Choice survey and published annually in the January issue.  In addition, The Cottages & Lofts was named #7 in the U.S. in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2010 Reader’s Choice poll for Best Small Hotels.

The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin is the only resort in the U.S. to score a 100 for location on this year’s “Gold List.”  No doubt it has to do with The Cottages’ prime location on Nantucket Harbor,  located on three wharves jutting into the Atlantic Ocean that are part of the Nantucket Boat Basin, the #1 Transient Marina in the U.S..  Not only do most cottages have outdoor patios or decks from which one can take in stunning views of the Nantucket waterfront, but all  29 Cottages & Lofts, which include 12 pet-friendly WOOF Cottages, have full kitchens and are conveniently located just a two-minute walk from Nantucket’s charming Main Street.

With rates starting from $175, The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin opens for the 2011 season on April 7.

The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin is owned and operated by Nantucket Island Resorts, a collection of premier properties on Nantucket also including The Wauwinet, White Elephant, White Elephant Hotel Residences, Jared Coffin House, and Nantucket Boat Basin. The Wauwinet also appeared on the 2011 “Gold List”; this is the sixth consecutive year for the hotel, the only Relais & Chateaux property on Nantucket.

The 2011 Condé Nast Traveler’s “Gold List” hotels are voted on by the Readers’ Choice Awards.  Each score represents the percentage of respondents who rated a property “excellent” or “very good” based on specific criteria.  The winners were announced in the January 2011 issue of Condé Nast Traveler magazine.  For more information about the 2011 “Readers’ Choice Awards,” visit the awards webpage at
