FAMILY HOME IN HISTORICAL SUMMER COLONY

Siasconset House Rental Photos and Description

- 4 bedrooms, 2 & 1/2 baths, outdoor shower, sleeps 7

This house was a featured exhibit in the Nantucket Historical Association's 'Sconset Village. Hedges protect a bright, remodeled, 19th Century barn with a front lawn, gardens, and southern exposure. It's just a 2-minute walk to the ocean beach. The village includes a post office, 3 excellent restaurants, a sandwich shop, a grocery, and a liquor store. It's only one mile to a 100-year-old, 9-hole golf course and eight miles to the whaling town, with museums, galleries, shops and superb restaurants. A bicycle suffices for daytime transport; a shuttle bus serves the town & villages. The home sleeps 7 and includes a full bath, two half-baths and an outdoor shower.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome
Guestbook comments from the owner
Betsyann and Bob,We loved your home and had a wonderful vacation week in Nantucket. My wife and my oldest son believe they heard your ghost on two occassions. I thought he was quiet! He woke them up with loud banging sounds. Fortunately I slept through it! I hope we have the opportunity to rent your lovely home again. Dan McLaughlin

Summer in Sconset

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time during our stay at SRAIL, the house had everything we needed and is perfectly located.

The beach is barely 100 yards away, there's access to the private tennis club across the street from 1-3 daily and the house has a great front yard ideal for barbecuing. The grocery and liquor store are just down the street, there's a public golf course less than a mile away and the Sankaty lighthouse is a short walk by the beach.

Highly recommend a stay at SRAIL!

Dear Betsyann and Bob,

Our two week Nantucket stay was delightful! We arrived to find a clean, well organized home, just as it had been described. We loved being in town and the proximity to the beach. The outdoor shower was a great treat for all. Thanks for your assistance and good cheer.

Perfection in Sconset

  • 5 of 5
Dear Betsyann and Bob,

We had such a great time on Nantucket and being back at your house.
It was all as we remembered it—comfortable, charming and in the perfect location. It felt wonderful to get back in the routine of walking to the Sconset Market in the morning for blueberry muffins and the paper and then relaxing in the yard. Thanks for the new restaurant suggestions, too. We especially loved Millie's for sunset cocktails. We hope to be back next year!

Lovely Srail

  • 5 of 5
Dear Betsyann and Bob, My husband John and I want to tell you what a wonderful week we spent in your lovely home. I was excited before I got there just by looking at the pictures, and reality didn't disappoint. We were so comfortable. The beds were great and we're picky. The kitchen was perfect, everything we needed and good knives to boot!!! We enjoyed your lovely yard for dinners and did use some of your herbs. The location could not be beat. The artwork was enchanting and your library was incredible. Thank you so much and we look forward to the next time we stay in your beautiful home.

Thank you so much for sharing your home
with us..it truly felt like a home as opposed to a generic rental. We were comfortable and cozy and everything was functional and best of all, within walking distance to the wonderful beach and safe, quaint center of town. The kids enjoyed their 11 year old freedom and we enjoyed long dinners in the front yard. We had everything we needed and more.

The Atlantic Ocean beach is the key entertainment on this beautiful island, but its history is also extraordinary, it having been a major whaling port in the 19th Century. Many homes and business buildings date to that era. It's also an artists' colony and a splendid place to sail and fish. It's got many tennis courts, two public golf courses, and miles of cycling trails. Just walking in the village and breathing the ocean air can suffice.

Other Activities: museums (whaling), library (ship's logs), sky observatory, bird watching, shell-fishing.

It has splendid restaurants featuring, of course, sea food and fine wines.

Notes:
Also enjoy: antique furniture, eclectic library, interesting history or lore in a marked binder. The house, Srail, was previously a club where locals and visitors told tall tales. It was famous as such and is (or was) a featured exhibit at the Nantucket Historical Society. If the exhibit is still up, it's worth the trip to town to enjoy not only the history of 'Sconset, but also the history of this house itself, including members of the club and their antics.
