Fabulous - shoulder season (no yachts docked in front)

We loved it. We visit Nantucket 3 times per summer season (June - August) and this is our new favorite. The location can't be beat and the service is the same as White Elephant and Wauwinnet - top notch. It was a little foot-trafficky in evenings - but part of the experience. Because it was on an actual dock (no land beneath) you'll feel vibrations from the golf-cart services that come through (coffee, clean towels, housekeeping) which is a little odd at first. Very comfortable bed and all accompanyments (high thread count linens, high end vanity items) - just like a 5-star hotel. It's right in the heart of shopping and dining. We returned to the island a month later and stayed elsewhere and walked over to see the cottage we stayed in and there was a MASSIVE catamaran yacht parked right in front of it that surely blocked the fanastic view we had in June. That would detract from our stay as the location is on the water and who wants to view the back end of a boat through the picture window? I can't say enough good things about this place - we'll be returning in '08 for sure!
