NANTUCKET, Mass. – Sept. 24, 2014 – With the summer crowds abating, fall brings to Nantucket a welcome atmosphere of relaxation ideal for family gatherings and corporate retreats. The private cottage enclave of Harborview Place, now under the management of Nantucket’s own Scout Hotel & Resort Management, is ready to host everything the new season has in store, from couples’ escapes, family reunions and wedding parties to board meetings, team outings and leadership retreats. It is also an ideal accommodations choice for upcoming popular events that draw visitors to the island each year, from the Nantucket Birding Festival in late October to the Nantucket Noel and Christmas Stroll Weekend that launch the holiday season.
On a private beach just two blocks from Nantucket’s Main Street and Straight Wharf, Harborview Place features 10 one- to three-bedroom residences available for three-, five- and seven-night rentals. From a classic fisherman’s cottage to a fully renovated barn, each is unique and meticulously restored by an award-winning architect. All are fully furnished with everything groups need to entertain in style, from full kitchens and expansive dining tables to large flat-screen televisions and other entertainment technology.
Superb concierge services ensure a carefree island experience to suit any lifestyle; for example, a family Thanksgiving can be accommodated with pre-arrival provisioning for an in-cottage, home-cooked feast, or with restaurant reservations at Nantucket’s finest holiday table. Concierge services also include daily housekeeping and arrangements for everything from island excursions and fishing charters to massage and spa services, pre-wedding make-up and hairstyling, or audiovisual services and a catered lunch for a board meeting.
Upcoming Island Events
Harborview Place’s central location affords guests easy access to Nantucket’s most popular special events, including the Nantucket Birding Festival, Oct. 16-19. Boasting some of the finest birding on the Eastern Seaboard, the festival is an off-season draw for visitors of all ages. Field trips will span the island from the East End to the West End, from farmland and ponds to salt marshes and shore, and the after-dark Barn Owl Prowl is a festival favorite.
On Nov. 28, Nantucket Noel marks the official launch of the island’s holiday season and takes place just two blocks from Harborview Place on Main Street. The annual event brings visitors and locals together for a festive Christmas tree lighting and caroling. One week later, Dec. 5-7, the town’s cobblestone streets will be decked in holiday finery for the Christmas Stroll Weekend, complete with minstrels, a town crier, and a visit from Santa.
Harborview Place is just 10 minutes from Nantucket Airport and a five-minute walk from the ferry landing. For more information, visit http://www.harborviewnantucket.com/.
