Genuine Nantucket experience /escape! Very casual environment, relaxed informal and comfortable. This is a vacation spot reminiscent of simple pleasures of Nantucket. Was so glad to find this place, so unpretentious and perfect and real. Owner very nice to deal with. Accessible to everything, fresh air everything right outside the door. Highly recommend!

My wife and I took a 1 night trip last Halloween. Being off season, the island was extremely quiet. The cottages were clean and stocked with all of the essentials. Within walking distance were a grocery store, shops, restaurants, etc. a lot of shops were closed, but that was to be expected. Our cottage had a nice deck overlooking the...

We have stayed at Harbor Front Cottage a few times. Once with another couple , but usually with our family and have always enjoyed ourselves. Great location and views. Everything is there, plus parking, a cherished treat for staying in town. We would recommend staying at Harbor Front to anyone wanting a true casual Nantucket holiday experience.

Quintessential casual beach cottage at water's edge! No hassle, No worries - convenient ideal location close to historic Maint St, shopping, restaurants. museums and ferry dock. Great sunrises and sunsets as we stroll the beach in front of our "digs". This is our 3rd stay and looking forward to #4 ... our home away from home!! T. March, Florida

Came here and stayed two nights while visiting my mom. We loved the ability to walk to town to go out and eat and did not have to drive. Pretty view. Great space. Wonderful back yard. I rode my bike over the island. Had fun downtown. Easy to get to ferry. Perfect location.

You can definitely find betterr for the money. Good location as far as walking, but not worth the 600 a night. It's very old, not real clean,I was so disappointed when we walked in and saw the room., but I wasn't going to let it ruin our trip. Try the White Elephant., it's beautiful, I wish we had stayed there...The...
