About Lauren Klein

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.

Why Lauren Klein chose Tom Nevers

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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).

Guestbook comments from the owner

"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!

A Remarkable Experience on Nantucket

  • 5 of 5
Having visited Nantucket by boat many times, I was not familiar with all of the joys the island had to offer away from the harbor. Lesser Light was the perfect home from which to explore the Serengeti, the miles of bike paths and the solitude of a nearly-deserted Tom Nevers beach. The nearby shuttle stop was convenient for provisioning and shopping trips to town.

The cottage is immaculately maintained and well-appointed with an array of upscale amenities. The huge deck and outdoor shower are a delight after a bike-ride to the beach or just soaking up the sun on a quiet afternoon.

The owners are attentive and gracious, providing prompt assistance and guidance for even the smallest of issues. The only difficult part of the stay was having to pack and leave what we now consider our Nantucket home. We are looking forward to experiencing the cottage in the off-season this year and for years to come.

Owner's Response: We have had many guests stay in 'Lesser Light' over the years and, we are pleased to say, so many of them have been happy there. But, without question, you are the very first guests to ever express your pleasure to us in a Nantucket Limerick. (Sadly, it doesn't seem appropriate to post here.)

We thank you for your kind words, for your weird rhymes - but mostly we are just pleased that you were able to have such a relaxing and delightful week. There's a reason why so many Islanders say September is their favorite month of the year!

This cottage is delightful.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I brought our dogs and all of us had an amazing stay in this sweet and well designed cottage. The cottage is convenient to the Moors which is our favorite place for long hikes with the dogs. Tom Nevers Beach is also close by. We enjoyed sitting on the private deck, watching the birds come to the birdbath and feeder, cooking simple meals on the grill, watching a meteor shower, and relaxing under the large umbrella. The property is clean and well-maintained, Ron and Lauren could not have been more helpful, and I would highly recommend this place to a friend fortunate enough to be able to travel to the magical island of Nantucket. I only hope I am able to return someday.

Owner's Response: Thank you! And thanks, too, for your note to Ron. We loved hearing that you enjoyed the landscaping and flower gardens. We enjoyed welcoming you back for your second visit and look forward to your third! Hopefully, you'll be able to come for even longer next time.

Wonderful Nantucket Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I (and our dog, Tyson) needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of home and we could not have picked a better place to stay! I have absolutely no complaints about this listing. It was clean and stocked with everything you would need. We got groceries the first night and spent most of our time relaxing and grilling on the deck. We are not really the type to bird-watch, but we found ourselves so interested in all of the birds that stopped by! They were beautiful and definitely not the kind you would ever see in a city-setting. It was a very cool addition to our trip. The location is great because it is just a short drive into town but also just far enough away to get some private time in the Tom Nevers area (I would recommend a car unless you are an avid bike rider... we rented one for cheap from Nantucket Island Rent-A-Car because we wanted to explore the rest of the island). We took Tyson to the beach nearby which he LOVED. Lauren and Ron were amazing in all aspects of the rental process. They were easy to reach for any questions or concerns and Lauren provided me with a ton of helpful information about the island and our stay at the cottage. I HIGHLY recommend this listing to any couple looking for some R & R. Would definitely stay here again!!

Quaint, quiet cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Myself, my husband, our 7 month old daughter and our dog truly enjoyed our stay at the Lesser Light. Our trip was kicked off with a warm welcome from Lauren and Ron, who also periodically checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. The cottage was clean, comfy and cozy. And its location was very convenient - a few minutes outside of town, right next to a wonderful bike/walk path, and just up the road from Tom Nevers Beach which had spectacular views. I only wish we could have stayed longer!

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5
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!

Sweet cottage

  • 5 of 5
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.

*** 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).
