Massachusetts House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 15, outdoor shower

Enjoy Nantucket the way it used to be in charming Wauwinet.

This bright and cheery beach house is just steps from the Atlantic ocean and the best Bass fishing beach on the East Coast.

It's also a short bike ride to the famed Nantucket Moors and a hundred miles of secluded mountain bike trails.

It is truly Summer living at its best with 4 plus bedrooms in a light and bright well maintained house.

The interior is summer fresh with breathtaking views from every window.

Outside two lovely decks open to a private stretch of what many say is the prettiest beach on Nantucket.

The ideal location provides an unmatched vantage point from which to explore Nantucket's summer fun while also being able to retreat to the 'quiet and serene' side of the island.

Perfect for a family or just a summer getaway.

Also available: cute two bedroom cottage on nearby property

Fishing: Just steps from the deck is one of the most active fishing grounds in the world. In fact, the Wauwinet village was historically a favorite of the island's Native Americans and has been considered a local surfcaster's paradise for decades.

All Summer and Fall, Striped Bass make their way back and forth in the teeming Atlantic tides that run just off shore. They are well within surfcasting distance and there is no place more reliable than Wauwinet.

In addition, the Wauwinet waters teem with schools of fluke and bluefish, the bluefish offering one of the best fights a fisherman could ever hope for, thrilling both locals and visitors alike.

Bluefish always

Mountain Bike Riding: Just a short distance from the front door is one of the most well maintained bike path roots in the East. Go to town or visit the Quaint village of Siasconsett---all on protected and safe paved bike paths.

Or go off roading in the Moors. Just up the Wauwinet road is the famed Nantucket Moors, one of Nantuckets hidden treasures. There are hidden lakes and breathtaking landscapes that have drawn the eyes of artists from around the world.

Winding through these dramatic and picturesque landscapes are hundreds of miles of bike paths. One minute you're darting through the woods in speedy and turning paths. The next you're on top of a knoll with views of the entire island and a sunset that makes a heart ache.

The Wauwinet Inn: The Wauwinet Inn is located just steps away and offers 5 star lunches and dinners all within walking distance

The internationally acclaimed restaurant, TOPPER'S. celebrates Nantucket's bountiful harvests from the sea and shore and features the distinct, natural flavors of seasonal foods.

It has an atmosphere both sophisticated and relaxed, and boasts an award-winning wine cellar that is a long-time recipient of the coveted Wine Spectator's Grand Award.

Lovely House

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with friends and had a great time. As we all had kids it was nice to be steps away from the beach. Outdoor patio area was perfect for dinner. Highly recommend and hope to find myself back there in a few years (for two weeks :)
