We really enjoyed our stay! Returning this year, 2013 in August.
I have been renting on Nantucket since the late seventies. I wanted to buy my own little cottage at some point. When I saw the Sweet Briar for sale I knew that the Sweet Briar was the right one for me. I wanted to share my home with guests so they, too, may enjoy an affortable vacation on Nantucket.
I was enchanted by the Sweet Briar and felt that it was time to buy my own cottage on Nantucket.
It is only one mile and a half from downtown Nantucket and secluded enough in a nice courtyard and views of nature, for privacy. The best of both worlds!

Bartlett Farms offers fresh, home cooked prepared foods, grocery and produce, desserts, as well as plants, flowers, decorations, lectures and more. Take a ride down Bartlett Farm Road to take in the beauty of nature.
