We welcome you to 'Lesser Light,' a lovely cottage that makes a perfect get-away destination. A builder on the island for close to 20 years, Ron built this cottage for himself. The love he put into it shows in all the details.

Ron chose this property because it is a lush, beautiful, 3 acre parcel, affording privacy and at the same time easy access to everything Nantucket has to offer.

When venturing out, I love to spend an afternoon in 'Sconset, which is less than five minutes away. There, you can park your chair on the beach, catch some rays, read a good book, and when you get hungry, leave everything there and walk up the stairs from the beach right into the middle of the quaintest, most charming village. There's a general store with all kinds of good things, including the most delicious coconut and ginger ice creams! Then take a stroll around and look at some of the rose-covered cottages -- all framed by the sparkling blue sea.

'Sconset offers five restaurants (besides the general store): a cute sandwich shop (Claudette's); the beach-side bistro at the Summer House; the upstairs bar and restaurant at the Summer House; The Sconset Cafe, which has a really nice breakfast, offers lunch and a BYOB dinner (the liquor/wine shop is adjacent to it); and The Chanticleer which offers an upscale dinning room and a more casual bar dining area (lunch in season).

Relaxing retreat

We stayed at the cottage with our lab the last week of August 2013. We enjoyed being in a very private residential setting and staying just outside of town. We went to the beach and did the nearby trails/land banks during the day with our dog. 'Sconset was the best! At night it was an easy drive to and from town for dinner or just drinks if we cooked in. The cottage was clean, homey, and very relaxing. Ron and Lauren were wonderful to work with and we will definitely be contacting them in the future for other vacations!

Perfect cozy cottage!

"Lesser Light" was a fantastic place to stay! It had all the amenities you could want and a beautiful deck outside, perfect for grilling and enjoying the summer evenings. Ron and Lauren made themselves totally available. I plan on staying there again. It was nice and private as well. The perfect cottage for our Nantucket stay. I highly recommend it!

Sweet cottage

This is a very sweet cottage that was perfect for a small family with younger kids or a romantic get away for one couple. We had the children sleep on a futon in the common room that can be separated with a pocket door. There is a small tv in the separate bedroom. Lots of privacy. The location was terrific with quick access to the bike trail. Tom nevers is located in the middle of the island so we were able to run to sconset and bike to town. This was our first trip to Nantucket and we look forward to going again. Lauren and Ron were wonderful hosts and very helpful!!! Would rent from them again.
Owner's Response: We love that you kept saying "perfect, perfect," about the cottage. It was a pleasure having you and we hope to see you back again!

Perfect for a young couple (with dogs, especially)

This really is a wonderful little cottage -- quiet, secluded, with a lovely rural setting. By the third day, my wife was already trying to figure out when we could come back next year.

We brought our two dogs and had a great time exploring the island with them. We were very pleased with the cottage's location. There are plenty of trails to walk just across Milestone Road at the Middle Moors. Tom Nevers Beach, which never has much of a crowd, is also a beautiful walk. The bike path along Milestone Road makes it an easy ride into 'Sconset or Nantucket proper.

Everything was clean and as-described, and, as others have written, you can tell that it was put together with a great deal of care. Some of my favorite moments on the trip were just sitting out a storm or the midday sun in the alcove. We didn't make much use of the kitchen, but I can verify that it's at least adequate for grilled cheeses.

Lastly, Ron and Lauren were very helpful (and very patient with us).

It was really a great experience for us and we can't wait to do it again. I would recommend this cottage to any party of a similar size.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your detailed Review. I know that people considering staying will appreciate reading about your experience. We're so happy you enjoyed yourselves so much and that you want to return for two weeks! You were terrific guests and we look forward to having you back again.

A week in August

Lesser Light was a great fit for my husband and me and our small terrier mix dog for a week of summer rest and relaxation. It is clean, well-cared-for and quite private. It's nicely situated on the island, never too long a drive to anywhere, with particularly good access to the south side beaches.
Owner's Response: We're so glad you got some peaceful, romantic relaxation on your 'babymoon.' It made us happy to think of the two of you in the cottage, resting up for the big event. We hope to see you back sometime in the future with your little one in tow!

*** Located in Tom Nevers East, minutes from the Ocean, the bike path into town, and a WAVE (shuttle bus) stop, and a five minute drive into Siasconset ('Sconset), this adorable cottage allows easy access to all the pleasures of Nantucket summers even while sitting serenely, surrounded by gardens, up a long, private driveway. Pull up a chaise lounge on the large wood deck, grill the day’s catch on the gas grill, take a nap in the hammock, watch the incredible night sky just outside your door - without the lights of town interfering - and delight in the best of Nantucket!

In nearby 'Sconset, there are five restaurants: a cute sandwich shop (Claudette's); the beach-side bistro at the Summer House; the upstairs bar and restaurant at the Summer House; The Sconset Cafe, which has a really nice breakfast, offers lunch and a BYOB dinner (the liquor/wine shop is adjacent to it); and The Chanticleer which offers an upscale dinning room and a more casual bar dining area (lunch in season).
