THE SERENE SIDE OF THE ISLAND-WATERFRONT...ON THE BEACH!!!... ON THE OCEAN!!!

Wauwinet Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Two Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4, outside deck all steps from the Sea

This bright and cheery cottage is placed directly on the dune of what many describe as the best beach on Nantucket. Like the Native American chief for which it is named, Wauwinet remains steadfast against change. It has valiantly maintained the natural beauty that has attracted visitors to Nantucket for decades and this quaint getaway sits in the center of it all. Read a Summer novel on your private beach or take an afternoon nap in one of the beautifully appointed bedrooms.Perfect for a small family or someone who simply wants to get away to the serenity of the island's east end.

The Wauwinet Inn: The Wauwinet Inn is located just steps away and offers 5 star lunches and dinners all within walking distance. The internationally acclaimed restaurant, Topper's. celebrates Nantucket's bountiful harvests from the sea and shore and features the distinct, natural flavors of seasonal foods. It has an atmosphere both sophisticated and relaxed, and boasts an award-winning wine cellar that is a long-time recipient of the coveted Wine Spectator's Grand Award.

Bike riding: Just a short distance from the front door is one of the most well maintained bike path roots in the East. Go to town or visit the Quaint village of Siasconsett---all on protected and safe paved bike paths. Or go off roading in the Moors. Just up the Wauwinet road is the famed Nantucket Moors, one of Nantuckets hidden treasures. There are hidden lakes and breathtaking landscapes that have drawn the eyes of artists from around the world.

Winding through these dramatic and picturesque landscapes are hundreds of miles of bike paths. One minute you're darting through the woods in speedy and turning paths. The next you're on top of a knoll with views of the entire island and a sunset that makes a heart ache.

Fishing: Just steps from the deck is one of the most active fishing grounds in the world. In fact, the Wauwinet village was historically a favorite of the island's Native Americans and has been considered a local surfcaster's paradise for decades. All Summer and Fall, Striped Bass make their way back and forth in the teeming Atlantic tides that run just off shore. They are well within surfcasting distance and there is no place more reliable than Wauwinet. In addition, the Wauwinet waters teem with schools of fluke and bluefish, the bluefish offering one of the best fights a fisherman could ever hope for, thrilling both locals and visitors alike.

LOVELIEST AUTHENTIC BEACH COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Sweetest little cottage. Very well maintained.
Impeccable, fresh, joyous and cozy home.
Not a frou-frou over decorated imitation beach cottage, this is the real deal.......very rare.
Easy going pleasant owners, want their guests to be happy.
Great housekeeper.
No a speck of sand in house when we arrived.
One of the most relaxing vacation we have ever had, so quiet.
Wonderful for people who want to spend days on beach. The beach is the cottage's back yard.
Wauwinet Inn, an elegant and classic blast from the past with best hamburgers on Nantucket is walking distance.

PERFECTION AT THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 4 ½ year old twin boys, and I spent a lovely week in Nantucket. The cottage was pristine, beautifully maintained and well appointed with all of the essentials in life. The washer & dryer were a real bonus for a beach cottage! In spite of the three televisions and WiFI, we managed to keep our vow for a TV-free vacation, and the boys were not disappointed. Just steps from the beach, it was a veritable wonderland of sand castles, kite flying and chasing waves. Even our one dreadfully rainy day was magical. After baking brownies and playing games, we threw on sweatshirts and took the short cut to the harbor side. Not a single puddle between the cottage and the harbor was left untested by 4 year old feet. Our only regret was that we couldn’t stay longer!

BEACH COTTAGE

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time! It was perfect for our young children with the beach steps away and the harbor being a short walk...the best of both worlds! The owner had great restaurant recommendations. The cottage was clean and freshly painted. My only complaint was that there was not a dishwasher, but none the less we had a great time.

PERFECT DESTINATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this cottage earlier in the summer and it was the perfect escape. Tranquil and beautiful. The location is ideal if you want to spend your days on the beach and your nights listening to the surf. This location encompasses everything that is truly Nantucket.

The cottage is very clean and perfectly appointed for a vacation.
