BEACHFRONT COTTAGE ON MADAKET BAY

Madaket Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This cottage was built by our grandfather in 1950 to be close to the fishing on the west end of Nantucket, so close in fact that even at 63 I can still throw a quohoag shell into Madaket Bay from the front stoop. He and our grandmother did not need much more than the beach in front and the bay beyond. Over the last 60 years we have learned that we don't either and with our children and grandchildren have grown to cherish this fishing cottage on the beach, just the way it is -- no tv, just games and puzzles and conversation together, no dishwasher, just learning to share the chores and save water joyfully. That view from the front stoop in 2011 is the same view i remember as a child almost 60 years ago. In the evening we share our stunning views of the sunset over Tuckernuck with folks from all over the island who drive, bike and walk to the end of Cambridge Street to sit on the beach and watch the sun paint the sky, but very few save us see the slowly fading palette as night rises from the sea. We awake in the morning and walk the sickle curve of the beach to Eel point or swim in the warm water of the bay with the blue-eyed scallops and the horseshoe crabs or set our course in kayak or skiff across the bay to Esther island or simply sit on the dune and watch the boats go out to catch the first turn of the tide and the children chase minnows in the shallows.

The three of us are the third generation to own this house and there are two more behind us who are learning to love this place as we do, walking on the beach in the morning, setting out across the bay to fish or just explore and watching the sunset over Tuckernuck. We hope you will love it as we do.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1950

My Grandfather began coming to Nantucket in the 1920's where he owned a house closer to town, but in 1950 he and my grandmother built this cottage on Madaket be to closer to the fishing off the south shore. My family has been doing this ever since.

You can walk out the front door, down onto the sand and stroll for miles past wetlands and a bird sanctuary to watch the oyster catchers and egrerts, or you can walk straight out into the bay at low tide for two hundred feet and explore the sealife - minnows, crabs, scallops.
