Bedrooms 2
Space 1,400 sq. ft.
Property type house


About the property

2BR/2BA sleeps 5

Charming home on south bluff with ocean view from front yard. Cathedral ceilings, fireplace, private garden, country kitchen. Two bedrooms, two baths (plus queen sleeper sofa). Two minute walk from Sconset center or from beach. This is an extremely romantic and charming home with the feel of an English cottage. Fully equipped, including bicycles. Pet friendly. One block from The Summer House Inn with its oceanfront, poolside dining & bar. And only a short walk from three of the best restaurants on Nantucket.

Sconset Village, famous for its rose-covered cottages, is one of the most picturesque places on earth in rose season (late June through mid-July). It also offers charm & peace in the high season when the rest of the Island becomes what some would describe as overly-busy.

Quirky quintessential Sconset cottage

  • 4 of 5

The location is terrific, the chairs in the yard are ideal for breakfast with an ocean view, the house is well stocked. We had a terrific time with our boys and dog.

Beautiful and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The house is filled with beautiful art and loads of books - it felt like a true retreat from the busyness of regular life. We lacked for nothing and enjoyed the quiet and charm of the area. I highly recommend a "recharge" at this lovely home!

Very Charming Sconset Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best, most charmg rentals we've ever come upon. It's reminiscent of old Sconset and very well situated with the beach and center less than a 5 min walk away. Sitting in the yard enjoying the ocean view with a glass of wine in hand was definitely the highlight of the trip! Really enjoyed our stay at this charming Sconset cottage!
