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!

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.
