Nantucket Town House Rental Photos and Description
1 BR, 1 BA, queen bed, 1 double 8' futon w/springs in living room. Sleeps 4.
Air-conditioned and secluded In the Lee is in Nantucket Town's Old Historic District facing an 18th-Century quiet, working windmill. It is only a 10-minute delightful walk to shops, restaurants, theaters, beaches and Nantucket Harbor, and a 2-minute walk to the Island-wide shuttle bus stop and bike paths. Guests can walk to Brant Point, Jetties, Children’s, Francis Street and Steps beaches.
Families can enjoy In the Lee alone or w/ the nearby magnificent four-bedroom house with a wraparound porch and Adirondack chairs (see # 105381) for multigenerational reunions. This family compound sleeps 12. With this superb location -- the Island's best -- no car is necessary, but both houses have two off-street parking spaces at the end of the long, winding driveway.
This tucked-away home has a tile floor and hand-hooked hand-dyed wool rugs with Nantucket nautical and floral themes, a brick patio for relaxing, showering and grilling and beyond it is a grass backyard with enclosed shower.
Other Amenities : In the Lee also has complimentary high-speed Internet (WiFi), a washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave oven, blender, coffeemaker, all linens, beach towels, all cooking utensils, fish poacher, lobster pot, charcoal BBQ grill, beach chairs (they can be carried or worn on the back and have a pouch for a cooler), books, cable TV, VCR, DVD player, sound system, children's toys, telephone, answering machine, and fresh flowers.
Caretaker: The caretaker lives nearby. She therefore is able to respond quickly to tenants' needs, ensuring their comfort and enjoyment. She gives tenants literature, Island maps and the Nantucket Restaurant guide. For a fee, she will pick up groceries and supplies to stock the refrigerator before tenants arrive.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This review is word-for-word from a frequent In the Lee tenant:
My husband and I have stayed at In the Lee many times over the years. We've always found it lovely, peaceful and charming. Sun-filled during the day and blissfully quiet at night, it's truly a special place, tucked behind the historic windmill. Perfect for a solo traveler or a couple, the house is fully equipped with a washer-dryer, outdoor patio with barbecue, air conditioning, dishwasher and a private driveway.
However, you don't need a car to stay at In the Lee as it's in an ideal location – a short walk to the center of town and an easy bike ride to the island's many beautiful beaches.
In the Lee's kind, conscientious owner is always making thoughtful improvements to the property – outside and in – taking great care to provide a pleasant stay for tenants in the hopes that they will return. There is always a helpful, knowledgeable caretaker on call if any needs arise and the cleaning crew does a very thorough job of making the house fresh for each new arrival.
In the Lee is a wonderful year-round choice for visitors to Nantucket.
