Lighthouses, crab shacks and quaint villages paint accurate portrayal of life in New England. Add to the mix a new Nantucket retreat, and you have just described the picture-perfect getaway. Harborview Place, named for its waterfront location along the town's shore, blends together a residential-style sojourn coupled with all the amenities needed for an effortless escape. There are just 10 privately-owned gabled abodes, all individually appointed with amenities such as crackling fireplaces, jutting balconies, fully-equipped kitchens, and lofts tucked in the rafters. But the waterfront views and bobbing boats are what makes a stay at Harborview Place priceless. Just like any luxury resort, you will receive a bevy of amenities, including concierge service for help with reservations to the town's most popular seafood restaurants, arrangements for spa treatments, and provisioning services to stock your pantry with your favorite edibles. Tennis courts, sailing lessons, and fishing excursions are easily within reach as well. Nantucket, an island consisting of less than 50 square miles, has a labyrinth of bike paths, beaches and historic homes. You will arrive either by ferry or plane service, and find little need for a car as everything is within easy distance. When you reside at Harborview Place, you will quickly feel as if you are part of this wondrous community. Returning to the main land may be a more difficult task than you originally anticipated!
