HISTORIC 1797 HALF-HOUSE ON QUIET FAIR ST A SHORT WALK TO EVERYTHING

Nantucket Town House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms w/double beds plus two twins on 3rd floor, 3 full baths, sleeps 8

Minimum stay: two weeks. This house is a quiet gem nestled in the heart of the historic district 450 yards from Main Street--an old home filled with charm of another era. It's 'the real Nantucket,' with its wide pine floorboards, original doors, cozy rooms, working fireplace, and light-filled southern exposure. It has a large, private yard (with hammock, gas grill, and picnic table), and off-street parking. This home is old-fashioned and comfortable without being fancy or formal. We find it a delight in all seasons--cool and breezy in summer yet protected and inviting off-season. It has been recently restored, but we left as much original detail undisturbed as possible. We finished the attic, framing a piece of found newsprint advertising John Quincy Adams' candidacy for president and chalk lettering naming a ship. Although we added high-speed wi-fi, which works throughout the house and yard, we've resisted adding a TV, preferring the rest and refreshing simplicity.

Six bicycles of various types, sizes, and ages are available in the basement; excellent quiet washer/dryer unit off kitchen on the first floor; stereo with cable to attach your music device; FM radio; fully-equipped kitchen; picnic gear; beach umbrella; beach chairs; boogie boards and skim board; gas grill; hammock; picnic table; lawn chairs.

All linens, blankets, and bath, beach, and kitchen towels are provided. Expendable supplies are also included, such as bathroom tissues, Kleenex, and paper towels. Also included are condiments, spices, and cooking oils. You provide the groceries.

You can bring or rent a car but it is possible to stay at 48 Fair Street without a car. That's what we've been doing--walking or biking daily to the supermarket, farm truck on Main Street, beverage stores, HUB, pharmacy, and wharves for fresh-caught fish. For trips further afield, the Wave, Nantucket's Island-wide bus system, provides easy connections to Siasconset, Surfside, Jetties, and Madaket. The Wave liberates older kids as well as house guests. It departs frequently from the nearby bus center or Whaling Museum, an easy walk from the house.
