The best thing about staying in Onset is the launch service. The drivers are unfailingly polite, helpful and responsive. We made several trips in for laundry and grocery shopping and never had to wait long. Our hats off to the whole harbormaster team, especially Antonio who dealt with us on both days.
The moorings are a great deal. They are secure and stable in protected waters. The docks have gotten better this year, too. They are new and can handle about 6 boats up to 35 ft and one additional on up to 50 ft. They all have power and water. This is a huge improvement over the past.
There are several restaurants close to the pier and two ice cream places nearby. The laundromat is less than 4 blocks a way. There’s a small market and a hardware store right in the village as well. Stop & Shop can be reached by a $10 Uber ride.
Onset makes a great stopping point for boats transiting the Cape Cod Canal,
