|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
A favorite for wedding groups & multi-generational families, 'Pilgrim's Bliss' is located off of Cliff Road, which starts from town and runs parallel to the cliff side beaches, beach clubs and restaurants. The Cliff Road residential section is one of the most desirable areas on the island. 'Pilgrim's Bliss' has consistently garnered extraordinary reviews by renters, including a recent resident who has a long history of renting other top end homes on the island, indicating it was by far the best home where they stayed over the years. This warm, welcoming family home with a salt water, heated swimming pool and guest house sits on the edge of town and is located a two minute drive to the center, a short walk to Step's Beach and one street away from the restaurants and tennis courts of the popular Westmoor Club. Pilgrim's Bliss offers easy access to shops, restaurants and beaches, while having the benefits of quiet, privacy, a large back yard with a duck pond beyond, guest house, swimming pool and star filled skies. There are the comforts of the extra large, burnished leather Chesterfield sofa, classical themed arm chairs and dining table constructed of 100 year old planks that can seat up to 14, to the extensive range of books, playroom, children's games, 3 plasma TV's (two are 3D large format), extra large covered wrap-around porch with distinct areas, including outdoor living area with fireplace, dining area, breakfast table, Sonos internet radio, steam room and air conditioning. At night, sit on the porch and look through the astronomical telescope at skies exploding with stars, or wander down to the duck pond, along the private, flower filled path lined with low level, white Christmas lights and enjoy a glass of wine while reclining in the Adirondack chairs.
excerpt from guestbook. "Wonderful holiday for the family 20th celebration. Look forward to returning. Thanks to the owner - a wonderful facility for all the kids."
Pilgrim's Bliss is aptly named . . . the home is impeccable yet comfortable, close to town yet serene, spacious yet warm . . . we couldn't have asked for more! I rented the home for a group of 12 women and we were impressed with everything from the decor to the landscaping to the enviably outfitted kitchen! Our group so loved the back deck fireplace, and we spent hours chatting and visiting in this beautiful space. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the showers luxurious and the proximity to Steps beach and Something Natural made for easy and fun walking excursions for sandwiches and sunshine . . . so perfectly Nantucket! Working with the owner was a dream, and we can't wait to book this piece of heaven again. We had high expectations going in, and they were surpassed. Well done!
This is a gorgeous manicured property, located about a mile from Nantucket village and about 1/2 mile to Stepps beach which was ideal for my young grandchildren. The House was spotlessly clean, spacious, with beautiful architectural details and all the amenities of home. Each bedroom had a very large bathroom for optimum privacy. We loved the attached guest house which was just as charming as the main house. Sitting by the pool in the evening provided a nice way to wind down after a busy day of touring, biking, swimming. When we dined in, it was always on the large outdoor porch that accommodated our 14 family members. Fun to be all together! We loved the local bakery, "Something Natural" which was a short walk or bike ride away-delicious home made breads and pastries, plus sandwiches for lunch. A safe bike path was right across the street from Pilgrim Rd, so we felt very comfortable allowing the children to ride. Nearby Barlett Farms provided us with delicious fresh produce and cheeses. I guess I can just sum this up by saying this property is on the top of the list of our favorite annual family vacations. From 8 to 80 years old, there was something for everyone to do and enjoy.
What a terrific, wonderful, magical place this is! We had a suberb stay and already can't wait to come back! So many blissful new memories for our family - our youngest son lost his first tooth here!! Thanks for the hospitality and the beautiful vacation setting!
This was our first trip to Nantucket for Christmas Stroll & our first time at Pilgrim's Bliss. What a wonderful experience. The house made you feel like you had come home the minute you walked in the door. Every convenience & amenity was thought of (my personal favorite was the bathrobes!!). An absolutely magical experience. We would love to come back again.
We are rarely at a loss for words, but... here are two: THANK YOU. Bliss, indeed, also relaxing, warm and elegant come to mind. The greatest gift a family can share is time together. Thank you for letting our family share time in your wonderful home! We particularly love the exotic wooden chair (at the front door) and all the interesting art. "Pilgrims Bliss" is aptly named. With deepest appreciation
Start with amazing architectural features , add impeccable yet comfortable furnishings and an energetic , responsive "on Island " manager , toss in an immaculate modern kitchen with every imaginable cooking utensil , immediately adjacent to an expansive living room and dining area , surrounded by a wrap around porch with over stuffed chairs, outdoor fireplace , nice size yard and heated pool , walk past the multiple free bicycles, then open the back yard fence and stroll down to the pond with its Adirondack chairs. At this juncture , whoever you invited to join you , even before they have seen the beautifully furnished bedrooms (each with its own bathroom ) the downstairs rec room or the self contained pool house (with separate kitchen and laundry ) will be moving you up on their holiday gift list. My family stayed @ Pilgrim's Bliss for the joyous occasion of our son's wedding to a lovely young lady who had summered on Nantucket for years. As noted in the guest book upon our departure , "the Bliss" took a special week to a whole new level . The listing pictures and description are totally accurate, the actual experience is even better.
Pilgrim's Bliss is located just off Cliff Road, one of the most exclusive areas of Nantucket, a stones throw from the popular Westmoor Club, 5 minutes walk to Step's Beach, 1 minute drive to the Something Natural sandwiches/picnic area, and a 2 minute drive to town
