About Dr. Robert Sarvis

Retired professionals who love the island and have vacationed on Nantucket for more than 40 years and have retired to the island.

Dr. Robert Sarvis purchased this cottage in 1982

Why Dr. Robert Sarvis chose West of Town

The cottage has all of the advantages of being in-town, yet you have the privacy and quite of the conservation area that surrounds the property. You can walk to downtown and all of Nantucket's great restaurants. The conservation area has wonderful hiking paths where you will see all of the native birds. Two cardinals have lived in our hydrangeas for many years. The privet enclosed backyard is private and safe for children with beautiful gardens full of hydrangeas and roses, and sheltered by an antique oak tree.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is centrally located within the Nantucket Historic District. The Old Mill and other historic sites are nearby. All beaches are easily walked or biked to. The bike path across the street connects with all of Nantucket's wonderful bike paths, making biking all over the island convenient and safe for children and adults alike. While there is off street parking for two cars, a car is not a necessity. Grocery shopping is a short walk. A bus stop is at the end of the street. Nantucket's seasonal bus transportation takes you to all areas of the island like Siasconst and Madaket.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is beautiful both inside and out. The location is also excellent. The backyard is private and the landscaping is phenomenal. Very private, large enough for a family with all the amenities you could want. I would definitely recommend it or stay again if I went to the island.

Great cottage on the edge of town

  • 5 of 5

Close to the heart of town yet next to a green nature preserve. We were able to stay here without a car -- renting bikes, walking and taking an occasional taxi. Also close to the Sparks Avenue stores and restaurants. We took 20-30 minute bike rides to 3 different beaches. We hope to return.
