Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I wanted to write to tell you how wonderful our stay at BARNTUCKET was. The location was perfect. We were able to walk into town and enjoy the shopping and restaurants. We were close to the best beaches Nantucket has to offer, which made the children very happy. The house itself exceeded our expections. Aside from being very spacious, clean and comfortable, the large back yard provided our grandchildren ample room to run around and play. In all the years we have been coming to Nantucket we have finally found the perfect rental property. Thank you,

average rating of 5.0 based on 56 reviews

very warm and cozy place. Plenty of space for a big group, all withing walking distance to downtown

  • 5 of 5

The Inn-Keeper goes out of his way to make your stay very special. from the minute you walk in the property you can feel the pride of ownership. easy , enjoyable 12-15 minute walk to downtown and the harbor. Spacious home, beautiflly appointed. The second floor apartment offers so many options as there is a second kitchen upstairs as well, and a full bath too. The main kitchen had every imaginable cooking utensil, all top quality. Nice private back patio with 2 upscale grills.

Our entire stay was perfection, even the foul weather couldn't dampen our spirit and good times.

I would love to keep this beautiful place my secret, but as a frequent traveler, I just had to share the experience, and recognize the Inn-Keeper for caring so much that we had a great time, and maintaining such a magnificent property.

If you have a chance to stay at Barntucket, believe me you will not be disappointed

Barntucket is a beautiful house close to town

  • 5 of 5

Barntucket is a beautifully converted carriage house and barn that maintains the original detail yet has all the conveniences of a modern home. The house was impeccably clean when we entered. The kitchen is very well stocked with high end appliances, dishes and pots & pans. We made quite a few gourmet meals without wanting for any device or appliance (Vita-Mix blender, Kitchen-Aid stand mixer, etc). In fact, we were prepared to eat out more but once we saw the kitchen, it was so much fun cooking and relaxing on the patio, that we did it a lot. The bedrooms are large and clean with ample closet and drawer storage. The bathrooms are large and clean and our friends all enjoyed the showers. I personally only used the outdoor shower which has ample hot water and very good water pressure. The living area has plenty of seating to easily accommodate a group of 10 without feeling cramped. The beds were all comfortable and all linens and beach towels were provided and hotel quality. The WiFi was fast and never had an issue, even with multiple devices connected.

The house has a perfect layout for 2 families to rent or a family with kids who want their own space. The upstairs has it's own sitting area with television, 2 bedrooms and a kitchen that was very useful when we needed a refrigerator for drinks and an extra stovetop or oven. (Although there are already 2 ovens and a 5 burner stovetop in the main kitchen).

It is a very short walk into town yet away from the chaos that can be right downtown. Our children (8 & 10) were with us and had no complaints about the walk, even doing it multiple times a day. Something Natural is just around the corner if you need a quick bite to eat and do not feel like walking all the way to town or if you want to pick up sandwiches for the beach.

The owner was very knowledgable about the island and gave great suggestions on beaches, restaurants and what to do with the kids. He has also left a collection of menus and pamphlets for just about everything on Nantucket. His customer service was very good. He responded to e-mailed questions very quickly.

I am looking forward to returning to Barntucket and recommend it highly.

Barntucket's The BEST!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed another wonderful week at Barntuckcet. This was our tenth year staying at this beautifully inviting location. Barntuckcet has all the amenities anyone could ask for. It is truly just like a home away from home. Centrally located, it is extremely easy to get anywhere on the island in a relatively short period of time. Whether we spent a full day at the beach, or shopping and just driving around the island, Barntuckcet was a welcome haven after a long fun day. Relaxation personified!

A great spot for our family

  • 5 of 5

A very special spot. Charming and great location for our group of ten. Barntucket isn't in the center of the busy commercial area ...a blessing....but close enough to make it very interesting. Quite close to the beaches. Everything was easy and fun.

Exceptional in every way: comfort, classic style, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

What an extraordinary home! Just look at the pictures: rich wood interiors, comfortable furniture of excellent quality and classic style, thoughtfully designed gathering, dining and sleeping spaces (including a charming, eaves-embraced second floor 2-bedroom "apartment" complete with bath, kitchen, dining area and sitting room) and framed family photos in abundance. Did we accidentally stumble into someone's treasured family summer retreat? It certainly seemed so. Each day brought a stroll to the beach or into town (we rarely used the cars except to go grocery shopping). We ate out occasionally but more evenings found us gathered at the long wood table for an intimate dinner. We cooked by turns, lounged on the patio, took walks, shopped, swam, read our books (or Bill's), and did a lot of contented sighing. "Same time next year?" got a unanimous and exuberant "yes!"
