Peaceful September stay with perfect weather
We just returned from our Nantucket stay at the Rose Covered Cottage. Waking up to the sound of the surf every morning with a week of perfect weather, we couldn't have asked for more! The cottage was quaint, clean and well stocked--even overstocked we thought with dishware and linens. Maybe a little storage space could be converted for games/books as we could never have used all the plates even if we didn't run the dishwasher. Location on the quiet east side of the island meant less tourists and we did get to meet some locals(including Digby the dog) who stopped by to tell us how much they loved this cottage. Staying on the quiet side does mean traveling for most restaurants and activities (The restaurants in 'Sconset are VEERRRY pricey.) But traveling on the bus gave us a good tour of the island. Bike riding in 'Sconset was pleasant and picturesque. There was SO much to do on the island...we especially enjoyed our 4-wheel drive out to Great Point lighthouse with stops at every little cove and beach along the way. Visit to Madaket beach for the sunset and learning about Madaket Millie was also a highlight. If you plan to cook, make a stop at Stop and Shop in Nantucket town before coming to the cottage. Prices at the 'Sconset market are way out of line!
We would definitely recommend this property to another couple or a couple with one small child. Although it is cozy, it is very comfortable.
