Ivy Lodge is conveniently located eight miles outside of Nantucket town in the historic center of 'Sconset. Our property is 150 yards from the beach (*lifeguard on site) and just a short walk to the village square where you will find a post office, tennis courts, liquor store, grocery market, two casual restaurants (one of which packs picnic lunches to go) and two fine dining establishments. During the peak season (June thru September), a bus service picks up and drops off from the rotary **two blocks away from the cottage. It's an easy way to get into town or visit many of the island beaches for those who do not want to rent a car. Biking enthusiasts have two routes to choose from which run from Sconset to Nantucket town. Both the Polpis and Milestone bike paths are separated from the roadway to provide a convenient and safe way to explore the entire island.
Take a stroll or cycle up to Sankaty lighthouse. It is one of the three lighthouses on island and is located less than a mile north from the Ivy's. Built in 1850 - Sankaty has a distinctive red band around the middle of its' tower and was the first lighthouse in Massachusetts to receive a Fresnel Lens, which can be seen at the Whaling Museum in town.
There is a reason why artists and photographers return every year to photograph and paint this unique, most Eastern town in Massachusetts. Come see for yourself!
