Nantucket Town House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Walk everywhere... only minutes from all of the shopping, restaurants, galleries and attractions in the heart of Nantucket….just five blocks to Main Street, and four blocks to the Harbor. This vintage 1860 Captain's house in the Historic District has been recently restored and updated. Have a real Nantucket experience in a piece of Nantucket history. The house, with its original wide plank pine floors and plaster walls is furnished with antiques…..many of them original to Nantucket from the period that the house was built. There is off street parking for two cars and the property has abundant landscaping.

The design is very true to the original. Upon entering the formal foyer, in addition to the stairway and the door to the living room, there is entry level access to a bedroom with a queen sized bed and a fireplace. This is ideal for those who cannot walk up the stairs to the other bedrooms. Continuing into the living room there is a large fireplace and mantel, a formal dining room with another fireplace and a recently remodeled full bath. Continuing towards the back of the house is the recently renovated kitchen with new appliances and a table that seats eight. Continuing to the rear is a laundry room with a washer/dryer, a back stair to the Master bedroom and access to the rear patio which is landscaped, furnished and has a gas grill.

From the entry foyer you can take the main stairway to the formal upper foyer and from there enter the family room which has a fireplace and a sleep sofa and a plasma TV. On the second floor is the Master Bedroom which has a queen sized bed, a fireplace, and a new private bath with a shower. The Master Bedroom has a back stair that goes down to the Kitchen and Laundry Room. There are two additional Bedrooms on the second floor that share a full bath with a tub/shower. One of the bedrooms has a double bed and a fireplace, the other has two twins.

I am a retired architect and have made a hobby/project out of restoring this house.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

We chose this location because of its proximity to the town and all of the amenities. Our children ranging from 8 to 16 enjoyed being able to walk into town or to the harbor and other than an occasional trip to the grocery store we seldom drove the car.

My friends and I stayed here for a girl's trip to Nantucket in August. I have been coming to Nantucket for over 25 years, and so I was careful when choosing a home to rent for this trip. The house turned out to be the perfect Nantucket home. It is the perfect mix of old charm and modern conveniences. It is tastefully decorated with antiques, and yet it also has a renovated kitchen and upgraded bathrooms. The beds were quite comfortable, and the bedrooms were spacious. The house was clean and well stocked with towels, pots, pans, dishes, glasses, and there were even condiments, sugar and spices in a cupboard which guests are welcome to use.. There's a washer and dryer on the main level, and at least one bathroom had a hair dryer and flat iron. The location is great, with Main Street and all the shops and restaurants being just a 5 minute walk away. The yard is lovely and private, too, and we spent some time sitting outdoors under the shade trees. There is a great outdoor shower, a BBQ grill and a table and chairs for outdoor dining. There is parking for two cars in the driveway on the side street (West Dover), but you really don't "need" a car at this location. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, and I would highly recommend this home to rent.

My husband & I stayed here with three other couples and two young children in June 2012. Everyone was comfortable (the children were small enough to be in cribs in the two larger bedrooms with their parents) and the house was well stocked with towels and dishware. The location is great. It is a short & beautiful walk to all the shops and restaurants downtown. Jetty's beach is a short car ride away. The photos do not do justice to the outdoor area. There is a great outdoor shower (a hit with the kids), nice shaded seating area, grill & lots of mint in the garden for mojitos. It is fenced in so we were comfortable letting the kids run around. The bakery next door is an early morning bonus.
