Madaket is known for its beautiful beaches, great fishing, crabbing, kayaking, sailing and the most amazing sunsets on the island. It is the original fishing village of Nantucket. Old Madaket is a geographically small area that runs along Hither Creek . There is a laid-back quiet beachside community feeling in Old Madaket. It's 'old' fashioned in the nicest sense of the word.
New to Madaket is 'Millie's', a terrific restaurant and bar and a small convenience market paying a salute to Mildred Jewett a woman who watched over Madaket Harbor for over 50 years . They are only open during the summer season. Madaket Harbor is easily accessed from the town boat ramp, This is the only boat ramp for trailerable boats on the West End of the island. Hither Creek and Madaket Harbor are perfect for kayaking and sailing small boats. Kayaks can also be launched directly into Hither Creek.

Fantastic vacation rental Christine Neroni
Review Submitted July 7, 2011 Date of Stay June 17, 2011 Can't say enough about this place. Owner had great communication and was excellent to work with. The pictures online don't do the views any justice. We had 2 families total stay. Perfect room set up for 2 olders kids to be upstairs, while parents took downstairs bedrooms.Loved the fact the 2 downstairs bedrooms had their own baths. Close to town very close to beach and harbor. Quiet and peaceful. Loved the wrap around decks. No need to go to the beach with the incredible view. House was very comfortable and quaint. Air condtioning was a total plus with my 3 month old. Great price for the rental.Would definitely rent again. Rating:
5 out of 5 Edit your Response Owner Response: It is wonderful to have this special home built by my brother so appreciated. When my tenants are happy I am happy. This first season of rentals have brought me pleasant, considerate individuals who leave truly refreshed and ready to return next season. I feel grateful as a Nantucket native to be able to share my home and my island !
Serenity and the best sunsets on the island!
