Secluded, but close to everything. Very well updated, awesome space

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and so did our children. Easy access to everything ACK has to offer, but a very quiet location. Really beautiful home inside and out. We will definitely be staying there again. The owner was great to work with, one of the reasons we had such a great experience.

Fantastic Private Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at the cottage. Jenn went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable for the duration of our stay. The house was immaculate upon arrival and contained everything we could possibly need; fresh linens and towels, beach chairs, games for kids, etc. A private back deck with lounge chairs and a lovely master suite (also large guest rooms) made this a super comfortable space. A short ride to Fishermans and Surfside and an easy trip to town, it's a great location. We've been renting on Nantucket for years and this was the finest, most pleasant experience we've had. I highly recommend this cottage.

A perfect home for a vacation on Nantucket with your family

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience at the Beach Cottage. The pictures shown are exactly as you will find the beautiful cottage-- crisp & clean and just adorable! I actually think walking in was better than I expected if that's possible. The house and grounds are perfectly maintained. The furniture and beds were again clean, fresh & new and all very comfortable. The sheets and towels (which were all provided) were clean, plush and soft. No need to worry about bringing any of your own-- and we are a family that is very particular about those sorts of things!

We found the cottage size perfect for our family (a family of 4), but were also able to accomodate my sister in law for part of our stay as our girls shared the room with 2 twin beds. It easily sleeps 6 people. We so enjoyed the home and all of its amenities and really took advantage of the deck and outdoor space. Though, we were a bit jealous of the family staying in the sister property though as we heard some splashes in the pool -- maybe we'll stay there next time with a bigger group :) !!

The owners were also amazing. They paid attention to every detail. Provided thorough instructions and directions to the home, left a nice hand written welcome note and really had every detail covered. Additionally, they were very responsive and helpful to any questions etc. We highly recommend this rental and will be coming back next year.

Owner's Response: Dear Katie, Thank you for taking the time in your busy back-to-school mode to write such a lovely review for us! I am so glad the cottage was a perfect fit for your family. I agree, the outdoor spaces are such a big part of summer living on island, so I am glad you enjoyed the various decks, as well. And yes, we are fastidious about replacing linens/towels frequently, so I appreciate that you appreciated that! We are very much looking forward to your return next summer....and of course would love to welcome you to the main house, too, if your extended family decides to come with! (See VRBO 190830....the main house, cottage and carriage house together sleep 15 in total). Thank you kindly again!

Amazing stay at the Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week on Nantucket at this lovely house in Surfside. The owners were incredibly accommodating and so wonderful to work with, it felt like we were staying at a family or friend's house. The location was perfect, close to beaches and town, and the house was beautiful. We highly recommend it! It fit our family of six comfortably. Jenn and Skip, thank you for your hospitality and kindness!

Dear Jenn and Skip,

Thankyou for a most magical time at the Cabot cottage. Our stay couldn't have been more perfect. The cottage is perfectly appointed, water view from the master bedroom level, sound of the surf crashing, every thing perfectly appointed and beautiful. Our family felt welcomed and enjoyed the finest Nantucket can offer. Jenn and Skip saw to every detail and surpassed all expectations. We' ve been vacationing on the beautiful island of Nantucket for over 35 years and our experience at Cabot cottage has surpassed all experiences we've had on the island. The cottage is perfectly appointed, finest linens and comfortable beds, everything we could need or want was available. The cottage was so enjoyable we ate home several nights as we couldn't bear to leave it, ordering 2 1/2 lb baked stuffed lobsters at Sayles in town and eating them at home enjoying the beautiful kitchen dining area and deck, having a first class star show each night. We are planning our return trip next year and can't wait to pull back up to Cabot cottage and our home away from home.

Thanks Jenn and Skip!
