This bright and cheery cottage is placed directly on the dune of what many describe as the best beach on Nantucket. Like the Native American chief for which it is named, Wauwinet remains steadfast against change. It has valiantly maintained the natural beauty that has attracted visitors to Nantucket for decades and this quaint getaway sits in the center of it all. Read a Summer novel on your private beach or take an afternoon nap in one of the beautifully appointed bedrooms.Perfect for a small family or someone who simply wants to get away to the serenity of the island's east end. 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. 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. 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.

                                                      A Week At The Beach From My Childhood

                                                      Wauwinet was exactly what I was looking for when targeting a week on Nantucket. Everyone understands that Nantucket brings with it a kind of subtlety not found on it's island sister Martha.....No stop lights, cobblestone streets and very nice beach options ranging from rough to very calm with cocktail and oyster options....... That being said and understood, there exists the ability to yoke all of what makes Nantucket great while gaining further solitude and avoidance of daily travel. Enter our little, modest beach house on the sand near the entrance to the wildlife refuge. We cooked lobsters, had campfires on the beach and played mean rounds of "Pitch" into the wee hours of the evening. For the right group - 4 max., this place is a hidden gem! The only small negative is that you have to keep your shower time to a minimum or else stagger them to avoid taking them cold.

                                                      Super experience...relaxing...the beach to die for!

                                                      lovely cottage just right for most... We hope to come back!

                                                      Clean, well maintained, cozy beach house.

                                                      We had a great time at the beach house. We spent more time inside than expected because of storm Jose, but the beach house provided us a cozy and comfortable place to stay safe from the storm. We cooked meals, completed a 1000 piece puzzle and watched a few movies to pass the time. The ocean is a few steps away and we brought our dogs there when we could to run and play. We watched seals pass by and they watched us too ;)

                                                      Perfect location away from the crowds. Lovely little cabin with great amenities and a walk over the dune to the beach.

                                                      Authentic, rustic beach cottage equipped with everything you need for a beach vacation. We cooked a lobster shore dinner, kitchen well equipped for everything you'd need! Appreciated the washer and dryer. We blew a fuse the first cool day and owner responded quickly to help us out. Would stay again in a heartbeat!
