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 Nantucket

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

The cottage is great! Quite and private yet a short walk to downtown and beaches. Well appointed and maintained. We highly recommend. 11 out to 10!

Fairy tale

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and garden. Perfect for our son's family and the two of us. Wonderful garden path to the windmill! Owner fantastic! Not quite as close to town or beach as we thought so be sure to plan transportation. Uber worked well for us.

Missing ACK already!

  • 5 of 5

Great house and beautiful back yard area. My family (5 adults and 3 kids) fit perfectly and we did not feel on top of each other. We walked into town everyday and rode bikes to the beaches. Very convenient location right down the street from a grocery store and a doughnut shop - all you need!
