The Polpis Farmhouse is a sprawling home and cottage that sits on 3 acres of lawns and meadows across from the Bike Path and attached to Land Bank Trails. A gem for families who desire proximity to both town and beautiful beaches, the house affords active Nantucket living, miles of Polpis Harbor walks, and stunning Nantucket sunsets.

All of the modern conveniences: Wi-Fi, 3 flat screen TVs, Sonos Sound System, 4 zones of central A/C, and outdoor shower. Five bedroom house with a first floor master and a second floor master suite and office, a family favorite queen bedroom with large, private balcony, another king bedroom with twin, and a double bedroom complete the second floor, and then a cottage attached by a breezeway offering a queen bedroom suite and a 2nd kitchen/living area making a perfect location for nanny or in-laws or a few relatives who wish to be separate from the main house. Large well stocked kitchen/family room in main house opening onto a screened in porch and deck is wonderful for cooking, entertaining,relaxing at the end of a long day at the beach, and savoring sunsets over the water. French doors lead from the porch into a spacious livingroom/diningroom/library area featuring 3 large fireplaces, high ceilings, and more room to relax and entertain. All new mattresses, beautiful bedding, and island air ensure a wonderful night’s sleep.

Watch distant views of the ferry passing by Coatue from the comfort of your bedroom or venture out with our 4 kayaks in search of mussels and fish. Better still bring/ rent a larger boat and keep it at our mooring. We are a perfect spot from which to launch your trips to Great Point, Coatue, and wildlife refuge beaches. Bikes and boogies are also here for your pleasure. Sailing school is a walk up harbor.

About Jennifer or Steve

Steve and Jennifer are married with 3 grown children. Steve worked as an endodontist for 37 years in Baltimore, and Jennifer taught first grade for 25 years in Baltimore County Public Schools. We now live on Nantucket and in Bozeman, Montana. We spend our winter days skiing and our summer days hiking mountains. We are equally active fishing, biking, and boating on Nantucket. We are deeply bonded to our friends, family, and love of nature. Watching seals frolic in the ocean, identifying a beautiful bird or favorite plant, and seeing a herd of elk cross our land brings us tremendous joy.

Jennifer or Steve purchased this house in 2010

Why Jennifer or Steve chose Polpis

The Polpis Farmhouse was purchased by Jennifer's family in 1968. They maintained the house for over 40 years. During that time, the house saw multiple weddings, births of grandchildren, large family gatherings, and summer fun with neighbors and friends.It was the place where everyone learned to swim, water ski, sail, and to play flashlight tag at night. Our first jobs were here on Nantucket, and our best memories were here in this house. In 2010 Jennifer and Steve purchased the Polpis Farmhouse from her family.

What makes this house unique

The house has a unique history. It was built in 1804 as a tavern for Nantucket whaling men. Later it became a hay and dairy farm, and the dining room section was added. When Jennifer and Steve purchased the house, it was in need of TLC. We completely gutted the house down to the studs and increased the size of the house in 2011. We worked very hard to preserve the historical charm of the house as we brought the Polpis Farmhouse up to estate level. The house has a modern feel and is decorated with a combination of early American antiques blended with modern comfortable furniture. It is stocked with beautiful china as well as everyday summer china. It has everything you could possibly want because it is our treasured home, and we like to live in a comfortable manner. We know that you will enjoy this essentially brand new home. You will probably not want to leave. So, come back.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for your beautiful house and property! This summer is our third renting a house together, and your house is head and shoulders above the others. We made use of your kayaks and had an awesome time paddling around the harbor. The beaches were also a favorite, especially Madequecham! Overall, this week on Nantucket could not have been better, and this house made our vacation that much more special! Thanks again!

luxurious, private, informal out- and in-door fun

  • 5 of 5
Before we rave about the great adventures we had with the bikes and kayaks, we want to give huge thanks for the absolute comfort we found here-the beds and linens so comfortable! The kitchen-a cook's dream-so well equipped and with such beautiful serving pieces- and the outdoor living so private.
We loved coming back from the beach and having the outdoor shower- and lounging on the patio and upstairs deck with total privacy.
Thanks for letting us use your bikes and kayaks-we explored the harbor in the kayaks and rode for miles on the bikepath.
We set up 2 puzzles on the dining room table and ended up eating our meals outside or at the kitchen table - what fun to sit at that antique and wonder who else has eaten there!
We can see why National Geographic named Nantucket the #1 Island in the World- especially with the kind of charm we found here at Polpis Farm.

We are close to 3 of the finest restaurants on the island: Toppers at the Wauwinett House (2 miles), and the Summer House and Chanticler in Siasconset (3 miles). When our children were little, they liked to eat lunch at the Summer House patio and swim in their pool overlooking the ocean. In the evenings we would visit the Sconset Market for an evening ice cream cone, walk down to the beach, and wait for the stars to come out.

The closest beach at 1.5 miles and a great morning run is Quidnet Beach. It has both the ocean and a safe pond for young children to swim in. Madequetcham (4miles) is a remote South Shore Beach with incredible swimming and an equally incredible drive.

We are a short bike ride to Siasconset, The Market, Rose Covered Cottages, and the lighthouse. Lock your bikes up and take the Bluff Walk along the ocean and pass some of Nantucket's most beautiful homes and gardens. We have lots of bikes for your use. The bike trail is across from the house. We have a favorite 15 mile triangular loop ride that takes you to Siasconsett, down the Miles End Road, and home by Polpis Road. Braver souls can off road up to Altar Rock.

Polpis Harbor is a boater's and shell fisherman's paradise. Take our kayaks and paddle out to the head of the harbor and to Pocomo. Mussels are ripe for the picking in the tall grass. estuaries. Borrow our clamming rakes and rake clams at low tide for chowder. You will see lots of people sailing. The town sailing school offers weekly sailing lessons for young people of all ages. It is located in our harbor, and you can also rent paddle boards on Washington Street and safely paddle around.

We have some wonderful Land Bank Trails near our house for hiking. See herds of grazing sheep at Squam Farm, discover hidden forests at Squam Swamp, or just enjoy the pasture trails around our house.

We have 2 private golf courses and a public executive course in Sconsett. The Miacomet Golf Club at 6 miles away is public, and there is talk that that the LPGA is coming there in 2014.

At 7 miles you reach Cisco Brewery and Winery. We love the owners, and it is a fabulous place to have some fun and listen to great music. At 3 miles you can purchase fresh produce at Moore's End Farm, and at 5 miles you are on Main Street, Nantucket.

On a rainy day or quiet morning visit the Whaling Museum which is Smithsonian quality and take a walk up Main Street to see the homes built by Whaling Captain's.

If you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle, drive to Wauwinett (2 miles), purchase a pass at the Gatehouse, take your tire pressure down to 13 lbs.,and drive out Great Point to fish for blues, picnic, and to see a seal breeding colony. Look directly out to sea. You are looking at Portugal.
