Canopache (Wampanoag Indian word for 'place of peace')

This well appointed home made our stay on this island more wonderful than I could ever have imagined. I think I can speak for the 2 of us when I say that we have developed an immediate love affair with Nantucket, and in no place can I foresee feeling the same way, at least in the immediate future.
We just came off island after two weeks at Canopache. Part of me hesitates to write this review for fear of competition for this wonderful home. However, given how great our experience was, the review is truly warranted. After spending over 20 summers and falls in Nantucket, this was our first time in this home. The experience could not have been better. With the house set back from the road and neighbors but still with great views of the ocean, it is expansive yet homey and quiet yet with tons of room to play. The interior had everything we needed with a great kitchen for those of us who enjoy cooking even while on holiday. The home even offered an office space for the dreaded days when we had to put a few hours of work in. I can't say enough about this home or about the homeowner who was immediately responsive and accommodating. Truly a great find!
Our family vacation could not have been more perfect. Sharing a week on Nantucket with our family was the first item on my "bucket list". The house easily accommodated the ten of us and all of our many needs (laundry, showers, dishwashing) so effortlessly. There was ample space and comfort for all. The beach was a huge draw, and we were there every day walking the beach, jumping in the waves, and playing in the sand. The fact that the playground was so close was "icing on the cake". Some of us rode our bikes, while others enjoyed the short walk. We all loved the beautiful yard and the many decks for conversation and for dining. The house was very clean, well stocked with towels, linens, dinnerware, cookware, and spices and condiments left from previous guests. This was particularly thoughtful, as it saved us from spending our precious time in the grocery store. Each and every one of us found Canopache (place of peace) exactly that. It was sad to leave, but we now have incredible memories of our amazing family vacation on Nantucket.
We have been annual guests at Canopache, it truly is a "place of peace." The location is ideal, close to Town but extremely quiet and private. The grounds are lovely, lots of grassy area for kids to play, and the views from the outside decks are spectacular. The house is light and airy, well stocked with kitchenware, bath and beach towels, beach chairs - everything to make a vacation rental convenient and relaxing. The beaches of Tom Nevers are close by and less crowded than other beaches of Nantucket. Both the home owner and their on-island caretaker are quick to respond to any question or concern. We would highly recommend a vacation stay at this property.
We've been staying at this same place for 5 years now and we love it. My children call it OUR nantucket house and that's exactly how it feels when you are there.
The house is perfect and immaculate. Marcie is a very particular homeowner and her home is beautiful as a result. The grounds are great. Our extended family joins us each year and the dogs get to run and play safely in the yard, the kids chase bunnies all over the yard, and we enjoy the views from the top deck daily.
The house is well set up with 1 BR upstairs and 3 full bedrooms downstairs along with an office with a day bed. the kitchen is great and fully stocked with everything you might need to cook an elaborate meal or just put something on the grill for a quick bite.
My only hesitation in writing this review is that I'll face increased competition for 'OUR' nantucket home in the future! in all seriousness. You'll love it!!!!
