Our home is a Charming Antique centrally located in Town.
On the main floor there is a living room, den, dining room, kitchen, full bath and a laundry room. On the second floor there are 3 bedrooms, one with king bed, one with full bed, and one with 2 twin beds. There is also a full bath on this floor.
We have a private patio that gets sunshine all day and there is off street parking for 2 cars. Our home is a 5 minute walk from Main Street where in addition to shopping you will find numerous restaurants and historical sightseeing. There is a lovely little beach a short walk from the house. You can rent a Kayak around the corner on Washington Street to paddle around the Harbor or the Creeks. There are bike paths nearby and anyof the ocean beaches are just a 10 minute drive. You can rent bicycles, mopeds, jeeps or cars on island; or, if you don't drive you can get anywhere on island via the shuttle bus which stops on the corner.
My wife first came to Nantucket over 30 years ago. After our wedding here 17 years ago I also fell in love with the island. We bought our home in 2000 and our twins have spent every summer here since they were born. There are bike paths around the whole island for us to ride on, we love to hike through the Moors and at Sanford Farm, and there are 80 miles of beach to enjoy the ocean. We have made great friends in this community and hope you can come and enjoy this wonderful island!

A very nice home for a family, a short walk to the heart of town. We loved that it was close to everything!
Our family of 5 had a fantastic week in Nantucket. We loved the house. It is decorated nicely and is very comfortable. The walk to town is easy and our children often did it on their own. We also became regulars across the street at 56 Union whether for drinks after a beach day or dinner with friends. We really enjoyed our vacation here.
We had a wonderful 4 night stay in this home. Its within walking distance of town and the rotary. Its got lots of character and fun things to look at. Its an historic home that has been updated which I am partial to. We cooked breakfast but ate out a lot because that was our choice. Its a well equipped, clean house and the owners are nice and easy to work with. We rode bikes and ended up renting a car for seeing outlying destinations.
We would definitely stay there again.
My girlfriend and I spent a fantastic September week at this cottage. It is very close to town, and we were able to walk to the shops and restaurants very easily. We rented bikes for the week and explored the island, and visited many wonderful restaurants. But we also cooked at 'home', and found that the cottage had a great kitchen, dining room, and den to relax in...
The cottage is deceptively large and can fit many people comfortably. The outdoor patio was also very nice, a great spot for cocktails, reading, etc.
Very much recommend this place and its owners, who were very nice and easy to deal with.
We hope to be back next September... and we know exactly where we would like to stay
I've just returned from a long weekend on Nantucket staying at this property. We will definitely return. This home is cozy, charming, and a short walk from the heart of Nantucket Town. It had all the amenities anyone could want - lovely patio area, outdoor shower, a true cook's kitchen and pantry, as well as wi-fi, cable and books galore.
The owners were kind enough to send over some tips and recommendations for our trip, as well as detailed information about the house (built circa 1845).
I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking to spend some time exploring the island of Nantucket.
