Nantucket Summer: NOW is the Time to Book Your Reservations!

The Nantucket Approaching the islandWe mean vacation rentals, ferry reservations and, fairly soon, camp and dinner reservations! The 2018 rental season is shaping up very strongly with limited availability during the month of August. July still has decent availability, especially in the first half of the month. We have seen a growing trend of vacationers returning to the same rental property year after year and many of them re-book in late summer or early fall. We do have some exceptional and large high-end waterfront properties still available for the month of August if that should fit your bill. If you have flexibility on when you visit Nantucket in the summer the best values are to be found in late June and early September, just after Labor Day.

The Steamship Authority has started to take auto reservations for the summer. We encourage you, if you have not already done so, to contact them as soon as possible in order to get your preferred dates and times for car reservations. Reservations can be made at or by phone at 508.477.8600.

Many camps (and restaurants!) will start to take summer reservations during the next few months. We recommend checking out their individual web sites for additional information.
