Nantucket Town House Rental Photos and Description

Large Sea Captain's House with 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

This classic historic sea captain’s house, located just up the street from the Jared Coffin House in Nantucket town, was built in 1807 by Captain Robert Gardner, Jr. who captained the Chilli, a whaler captured in the War of 1812 along with it's Nantucket crew by the Peruvian allies of the British at Talcahuano, Chile. Joel Poinsett, the U.S. agent in South America, rallies over 400 Chilean revolutionaries and rescued Captain Gardener and his ship allowing him to return to Nantucket in 1814.

A short walk from Main Street, this elegant home features four bedrooms on the second floor with ample dining room and lounging areas on the first floor, large eat-in kitchen and a sunny and spacious garden in the rear.

Within biking distance of Jetties and Surfside beaches and located on a quiet tree-lined street, this is the perfect “avoid having to drive into town” option for families on the go who want town access but also a quiet environment for their Nantucket vacation.

The main floor of the house includes a formal living room, dining room seating 8, informal den, and a large country kitchen with up-to-date appliances (electric stove, dishwasher, refrigerator) and working franklin fireplace, as well as a laundry room with washer and dryer and a powder room.

The second floor has a large master bedroom with a canopy queen bed, a second bedroom with a double four-poster, a single bedroom with an antique iron bed and a fourth bedroom with two twin beds. In addition, there is a central sitting room and two baths (one with shower, the other with a shower/ tub combination).

We are a no-smoking and unfortunately, a no pets house.

10% discounts offered for stays of 2+ weeks and past tenants.

Why Annie Ellicott chose Nantucket Town

A true Nantucket home with all the character, history, architectural details and ambiance. What could be better?

What makes this house unique

Bluefish fishing, smoking and making pate, lobster dinners, biking the Polpis road, collecting shells at Jetties, cooking, reading and just savoring being on the 'far away island'.

Convenient and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for something glitzy and new, this isn't the house for you. But if you want to feel as though you're part of generations of summer holiday-makers on the Far Away Island, then this might be the house for you. This historic house is comfortable (photos are accurate) and the kitchen works well -- we prepared multiple meals for 6-8 people, and then enjoyed them by candlelight in the dining room. The garden is a very pleasant place to gather and read or talk or even dine outside. Walk one block and you're downtown -- near multiple restaurants and shops -- perfect for window-shopping or actually stimulating the economy. Bike another few blocks and you're at Jettie's Beach. This house is well situated -- it's not necessary to have a car to take advantage of the many pleasure of Nantucket. The owner clearly takes great care of the house, and I would certainly recommend it to a friend or relative.

Our Perfect Nantucket Wedding

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented 8 Westminster for one week last August to host our closest family and friends as we celebrated our wedding. We held the ceremony and the reception in the garden, with the beautiful grey shingled house as the backdrop. It was the perfect setting to gather our nearest and dearest to celebrate our big day.

The location is PERFECT, just one block from the bustling town where restaurants, boutiques, and ice cream shops await. It's also biking distance from many of the beaches and sights (our favorites were Surfside Beach, the Cisco Brewery Tour, and the Whaling Museum). The house itself offers loads- history, character, plenty of space...a peaceful and quiet getaway. We loved gathering around the kitchen table for coffee and goodies from the Nantucket Bakeshop, and enjoyed many big "family" dinners in the spacious garden with fresh local produce from the Bartlett Farm Truck.

The owner was incredibly helpful throughout the planning process as well as during our rental. Her love for the house is evident in the careful maintenance of such a lovely historic home.

We HIGHLY recommend this properly for an authentic and personal Nantucket experience. We have such special memories from our time in the house, and I know you will too.

Fabulous unique home

  • 5 of 5
This lovely home exudes the true charm and history of Nantucket while being comfortable and a great place to relax and enjoy your time on the island. The big kitchen is great for large informal meals and cooking with friends while there are plenty of places throughout the house to put up your feet and relax. The garden is beautiful too.
