About the property

6 bedrooms, 3 baths, sleeps 12-14

Watch sunsets from the front porch of this comfortable, sunny 6 bedroom Victorian home (3 queens, 4 twins, 1 day bed which converts to a king, full sofa bed), located conveniently in the Sunset Hill area of the old Historic District, just a short walk to the town center and 3 ocean beaches. Features include an old fashioned 4-wheel pedal surrey with a bench seat and fringe on top, a whirlpool tub, and FREE teddy bears for all guests.

'Beary Quaint' contains a large living room with fireplace, dining room with seating for 12, kitchen and pantry, den, 6 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms. There is a sofa bed in the den.

The house includes many adult and children's books and games, stereo with CD, MD, MP3 and cassette, 2 TVs, 2 DVDs and VCR.

'Beary Quaint' had its origin as the 19th century life saving station on Muskeget Island off Nantucket's western coast. In 1931, the structure was taken down and moved to its current location. Though the layout of rooms has changed, the original woodwork gives Beary Quaint an older, more Victorian feel. Hardwood floors, lace curtains, patchwork quilts,

quaint wallpaper, stenciled walls, teddy bears, and furniture chosen for comfort make this 6-bedroom home ideal for family gatherings.

Charming home near town and beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Beary Quaint! The house is spacious, comfortable and fully stocked with amenities. We loved taking the surrey to the nearby beach and to Something Natural, to get fresh bread and sandwiches. It is an easy walk to town as well. There are many touches which make it great for families: a fully stocked kitchen, large dining room table, large table on the sunny patio, outdoor grill for barbecues, toys and games, and even a teddy bear on every bed to take home! We can't wait to go back to Beary Quaint- it's the best way to enjoy Nantucket!

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 loves staying at Beary Quaint, and there is plenty of space for extended family or friends to stay with us too with everyone having their own bedroom and lots of common spaces to spread out.

The house is clean and is well stocked so that you can pack lightly. There are even high chairs and pack n plays for young children. The playroom full of books and toys is a favorite spot for my kids to explore. Another thing that sets Beary Quaint apart is all the outdoor space -- swing on the front porch, lounge on the back deck, and there's plenty of space for kids to play in the fenced in backyard, including a tree swing. There are also bats and balls for wiffle ball (my son's favorite).

The location is perfect - tucked in a quiet neighborhood but still a close walk to town or the bike path. Just around the corner is a great lunch spot - Something Natural.

The owners are attentive and it truly feels like home. Thanks for another great stay. We can't wait to come back.

Owners communicate well; great location

  • 5 of 5

Nice, relaxing place to stay with extended family. Room to spread out in the backyard and the great front porch. Comfortable, well equipped, good interaction with owners. The availability of bikes and access to bike paths was a big plus.

Everything you could need in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Beary Quaint was great for my family. It fit everyone very comfortably and had all the amenities we could possibly need. The surrey was the best amenity - it was such a novel item! The house was clean and the location perfect. Just a short ride (bikes included!) or walk into town. John called to check in and make sure everything was good, which it was. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend!

Cozy Clean Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

When we visit Nantucket, we love to stay at Beary Quaint. It’s a true treasure and we’ve made many family memories here. There’s plenty of space for extended family and the house is clean, comfortable, and has everything you could possibly need. It is especially convenient for families with young children as there are high chairs and pack and plays and so many toys, games and books to keep kids of all ages entertained (adults too!). There’s even a surrey and our toddler grandson had a blast riding in it on the quaint streets of the neighborhood. We loved relaxing in the swing and rockers on the front porch and playing in the large backyard. The neighborhood is quiet, and it’s also close to town. We walked there everyday (sometimes twice) to shop or enjoy a ice cream treat from the Juice Bar. It's an easy walk to many fine places. We enjoyed delicious sandwiches from Something Natural, right around the corner! The owners take great care of the house and it really feels like home away from home. We appreciate and feel that care and you can see it in family photos taken through the years that display the various renovations. They are displayed in the comfy playroom/den. Our grandson still talks about all the fun memories at Beary Quaint and we do too. The house has fine details (like the wooden whale coffee table that first attracted me to the house) and a finely carved mantel for the fireplace. Three bathrooms, great baths and showers! Two washers and dryers! It's quaint with the modern comforts needed. All communication with the owners is clear and if needed, caretaking help is readily available. This is a five star historic home away from home. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We look forward to get a chance to return.
