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!

Barbara and Bruce Kiviat and family

Lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I have been visiting Nantucket since I was a child and return each summer with my husband, my two children, and my parents. The layout of this charming cottage worked beautifully for our group of 6. It is so hard to find a rental that is cared for like a private home--and this definitely meets that description. It is well-appointed and very well maintained. The cottage is decorated beautifully, is very clean, and full of sunlight. We ate almost all of our meals out on the gracious deck and enjoyed the cozy living space once the sun went down. The owners could not have been nicer or more helpful. They are very attentive, but not at all intrusive. The cottage feels very private. Its setting is reminiscent of homes in less-populated areas like Quidnet, but the location is extremely convenient to town, beaches, and especially the airport!

Owner's Response: Dear Jil and Brendan, Thank you very much for your many compliments! We were so happy to welcome your family this summer. We do try earnestly to keep the cottage as fresh and updated as linens, kitchen wares, paint, etc. as often as possible/needed. And, yes, there are many beautiful parts of the island, but most all of our guests with children know the same thing; that the location to the Surfside-Nobadeer beaches are where they most want to be! Thank you again....and please come again! My best, J.

Perfect vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed in the Cabot cottage for the first time and had a wonderful vacation. Skip and Jenn were very helpful prior to our visit and ensured that everything was in order at the cottage upon arrival. The cottage is adorable, clean and light with a great deck, outdoor furniture, and grill. It was a short walk to Nobadeer beach and easy bike rental nearby with close access to bike paths. The cottage was well stocked with beach chairs, towels, etc. as well.

The cottage is such a delight, filled with light from beautiful windows with tree-top views. Spotlessly clean. Very well appointed. Loved the outdoor shower. And the hosts are warm, kind and altogether delightful. As long time residents of Nantucket, they can answer any questions and offer great advice.

Our first stay at this Cottage was wonderful. The Cottage is so comfortable, bright, and provides everything needed for a wonderful Nantucket vacation. From the Brita in the Fridge to the beach chairs in the basement, the wonderful deck and fabulous rocking Adirondack chairs provided an amazing get away! We would highly recommend staying here We hope to be back next year!

Beachy-Chic Escape

  • 5 of 5

Another fantastic Nantucket vacation at the Cabot Cottage - our repeat visit says it all! The cottage is the ideal tucked away home base to bike to the beach, relax on the deck or take the short trip to local attractions. Owners are very friendly & accommodating and have stylishly updated/maintained the cottage - equipped with everything for a beach vacation. Great yard for lawn games and the cottage layout is the perfect mix of common space and private bedrooms - love hearing the ocean from your room. Lots of fond summer memories for our family!
