Great Time at "the far away island"

  • 5 of 5

Great time to start the summer. The cottage was a "home away from home". Kate and Colm were awesome on making the stay pleasant and very informative. We miss " Goldie" welcoming us every morning. Time and tide will bring us back again.

We absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful cottage. It has everything you need for a very comfortable vacation. The gardens were so beautiful and so condusive for lingering with a cup of coffee. Kate and Colm are so friendly and welcoming and made sure that we had everything we needed for our wonderful stay. Colm even drove us to the ferry. I only hope that I can return here again some day .

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 4 year old daughter had such an enjoyable stay at this cottage! Kate and Colm made us feel like part of their family and our daughter loved playing with their dog Goldie, feeding the fishes, climbing the tree and playing on the hammock. We look forward to our next stay here!

Beyond Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We got married in Nantucket 11 years ago. We travel back annually to celebrate our anniversary.

This year our plans were very last minute and we found the perfect place. Kate is an absolute sweetheart! The propert is quiet and the grounds are beautiful. The cottage has everything you could possibly need. The only thing you need for the beach is a bathing suit because the rest is provided ( chairs, umbrella, towels, cooler, and even ice). A short distance from town for either walking, riding the bikes, or taking the shuttle which stops very close to the house. It was so great meeting Colm and their adorable and friendly dog Goldie. Thank you for a wonderful weekend and being so accommodating. We would love to come back and stay again.

Lovely weekend getaway with the girls!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing weekend at the cottage! Went with a couple girlfriends for the long weekend. We spent a lot of time relaxing on the porches and laying in the hammock. The hosts were gracious and helpful. Couldn't have asked for anything better-- we loved calling the cottage our home for the weekend! Counting the minutes until we return. Thank you for a memorable, happy and fun trip!

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We visited when the hosts were away but they had arranged for someone to stay and care for us and Goldie. They were very helpful. The little house has everything you need. It is tranquil and a restful spot after walking and exploring Nantucket. Goldie herself is a total sweetheart!
