Oceanfront Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)
About Tom Hutton
We bought The Scallop in 2004, after selling a cottage in Surfside, on the south shore of the island. We have two young boys who love their visits to the cottage and the chance to explore the island.

Why Tom Hutton chose Smith Point
We chose the location due to its wonderful access to beaches and boating opportunities, as well as lack of traffic (both car and air traffic). Crossing over the bridge to Smith Point is like taking a step back in time. We find it incredibly relaxing.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage offers easy, quick access to both the surf beach and the harbor beach. You can go downtown and explore the shops and restaurants, or just stay out in our peaceful part of the island. We are a short walk from Millie's restaurant and convenience shop. Nantucket also offers a great network of bike trails and a great shuttle bus system, including a stop near the cottage.
Max guests: 6 (sleeps up to 4 adults)

The views were stunning and our three boys got to be boys. Very close to the beach and big yard. Loved our time in Nantucket.
Spectacular Owners / Spectacular Home
The owners were wonderful to deal with and the home exceeded the write-up and pictures. If you are looking to be "On the Beach" you can not get better than this property and owners. This was our first VRBO rental and would return to this property without hesitation.
Chuck, thanks for the great review. We hope you will come back regularly.
We just returned from a wonderful vacation at the Scallop!
This oceanfront cottage is well maintained and clean. Everything was very clean upon our arrival with the beds freshly made. There were plenty of linens and towels available for us.
The Scallop has everything you need for a fabulous, stress free week at the beach - wonderful new kitchen with cookware, tools, appliances, dishes, glasses, flatware, etc.; beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, wagons etc.; charcoal grill; deck furniture, amazing views; a path to the private beach; outdoor shower.
Tom, one of the owners, was great to work with. He was always quick to respond, very pleasant and helpful.
I would 100% recommend staying here and we certainly hope to return.
Best part of Nantucket. Remote and wild. A wonderful light, open property, with views of Coast Guard Bridge, and surf crashing just over the dunes a few feet away. Tom and Susan are perfect hosts.
Great house in great location.
His was the perfect place for our vacation with young kids. A beautiful beach with fun waves is steps away, you can walk a few blocks to the bay side which has calm waters perfect for paddle boarding, and after you put the kids to bed you can enjoy amazing sunsets from the deck. The house itself is clean and well-equipped. And the owners were very helpful.
Thanks, Kristin. We hope you will become a regular visitor!
