Cozy and Inviting!

  • 5 of 5

LOVED staying in Barbara's home in Sconset. Super charming and "old school" in the best of ways! Super comfy beds always make for a wonderful sleep. Spent lots of time outside on the wrap-around deck and biking to market and beach. Cottage was very clean upon arrival and outfitted with all one's needs. Barb is an excellent host and makes one's stay very personal. I highly recommend this home!

Great property, just as described

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed this charming cottage and especially liked the location on the far eastern end of the island. The cottage is away from the summer crowds and traffic. Everything was conveniently located in 'Sconset, excellent and casual restaurants and small market and beaches. We will return next summer.

The genuine Sconset cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 27 year wedding anniversary in this original Sconset cottage. (We spent honeymoon at the Ship's Inn in 1986). What a great cottage with great light and a great outside deck. We have friends on the island 'locals' with a genuine appreciation of the island's history that were blown away that places like this still exist on the island...not torn down/built up. Really special.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had fantastic week. The cottage was exactly as advertised and all necessary accoutrements were provided (clean linens, appliances, utensils, etc., etc…). The home was clean, charming and relaxing. The only reason I’m reluctant to say all of this is because I want the place to be available next year, but I owe it to the owner to give a nice review because of the ease and graciousness of the entire experience. We were very happy there.

Siasconset Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Ever since living on the Cape 25 years ago for a short time, we have always wanted to visit Nantucket. This year, with our kids all grown up, we decided to spend our family summer vacation on this island to get away from it all. We were looking for a cottage to stay in that was near a beach and away from the big town. After much searching my top pick was this quaint cottage in 'Sconset. When I inquired about availability I received a quick response from Barb (the owner) and after talking with her I was sold. We were not disappointed! Although it was a little hard to find, once there we fell in love with the place. Private and quiet we found this cottage quite charmingly decorated with all sorts of nautically themed paintings, antiques, etc. Sleeping arrangements for our family of 5 was perfect. We loved the old fashioned tub for showering. The kitchen had everything we needed. The town of 'Sconset was quite charming as well and the beach was really nice (although the water was quite chilly). Food at the local market was a little expensive and they only took cash. We rented mopeds for the week which was a wonderful way to explore the entire island. The bus system on the island was also excellent and very inexpensive. We loved exploring the town of Nantucket with its many stores, shops and restaurants. The Whaling Museum and Lifesaving Museum were fantastic. We took a harbor cruise on my wife's birthday that we thoroughly enjoyed. We visited Brant Point Lighthouse and Sankaty Lighthouse -- both were located in very picturesque settings and were a photographer's dream. All in all it was one of our best family vacations ever. I would highly recommend staying in 'Sconset in this cozy little cottage to anyone who wants to fully enjoy all of Nantucket's many charms.

What a time!

  • 5 of 5

Its rare to have you're every expectation fulfilled, especially when those expectations have been building all winter about a vacation of seven days. But Nantucket is the destination it is because of its ability to do just that; its rare to meet anyone who leaves this island unsatisfied, and of this lovely 'Sconset cottage I can guarantee the same. Mornings in the old claw-foot bathtub, afternoons walking the interminable beach, and casual evenings at the piano bar. Sitting on the porch at night you can often hear the waves crashing. I started my car for the first time in seven days and drove away over-satisfied, as Nantucket is famous for leaving one, and as this cottage in 'sconset will surely enable you. I could go into detail about the kitchen and the living room, but those are very small details in the shadow of what I left with: my every expectation fulfilled. If you're coming to Nantucket, come to this cottage. It's a rare place.
