A very quaint and charming house built in 1807, plaqued by the Nantucket Historical Society. The house has 10 fireplaces, and much of the original character. Perfect for just a couple or a large family or group of friends, (as the house has a 3rd floor) and can sleep up to 10-12 people. Nice level fenced in backyard, perfect for children and BBQs. There are ceiling fans and speakers in each room, and plenty of amenities, including newly renovated bathrooms and an outdoor shower. Also an easy walking distance from the ferry, and to all the shops and restaurants downtown. Just a quick drive to any number of beaches and close to many biking and walking trails and the supermarket. Also with many historic sites and museums just around the corner.

Despite a crazy trip due to weather and canceled ferries, we had a wonderful time renting Pleasant times. A nice couples trip to the stroll was even better do this awesome house and its amazing location a couple blocks from town. There is ample room for sleeping and lounging around and great amenities (probably even better in summer when its not 30 degrees with 30 mph winds). The best part was the owners though. After our ferries got canceled and we were stranded on the Island, the owners told us not to worry and allowed us to stay an extra night at no charge. This helped relieve the stress after being shut out of the last two ferries to leave the island. We would definitely stay here again and take advantage of the great house and location.
Great place, very short walk to town and had everything we needed. Clean and comfortable, updated bathrooms were very nice. Tons of history, old nantucket charm, we would absolutely recommend "pleasant Times" to friends/family. Looking forward to staying there next year !!
I rented this house with a group of friends in August, and it had everything that we needed to have a great time. We had 12 people in the house, and there was more than enough room for all of us. The backyard provided a great setting for BBQ's and lobster bakes, and the short walk to town allowed everyone to do their own thing during the day without having to coordinate taxis. There are little amenities that make this house great as well, like an ice maker in the basement and speakers in each room. There are also a lot of beach chairs and beach items to use, which are great when you want to take a short trip to the beach. I am looking forward to going back to this house often. There really are lots of Pleasant Times here.
We stay at this property every year and love it. It is charming, while spacious, and the perfect place to gather with family and friends. You will also love the updated bathrooms and the outdoor shower!
The location is ideal and within walking distance of Nantucket's most sought after places - the shopping district, restaurants, and the famous Nantucket Bakery! Beaches are also only a 5-10 minute cab/car ride away and the house has everything you will need for a great day in the sun with beach chairs, toys for the kids, etc.
We are always sad to leave this house and look forward to coming back every year!
Stayed here over labor day weekend and it could not have been better. Great location coupled with a great house made the experience exactly what we wanted. A short distance to town and easy drive to the beach. House is spacious and very accomodative. Been staying in town for years and this is one of the best houses I have stayed in. Owners have everything you need to have an enjoyable day at the beach making the experience very easy. Would happily stay here in the future.
