About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Enjoy our great family vacation home - The ''PoorHouse''. For over 50 years the Poor family has enjoyed regular visits and family reunions on Nantucket. We invite you to share our home and our special insider hints on how best to enjoy Nantucket, just as if you, too, have been coming for decades.

Our historic house is in a very quiet neighborhood in town, but just a short 10 minute walk to the bottom of Main Street and all the activity ''downtown'', and an easy bike ride to beaches. There are four bedrooms and three baths, for up to seven guests. There is a large fenced-in yard - great for children. You'll find everything you need for a wonderful visit - linens, beach towels, washer/dryer, gas grill, cable, and wi-fi. The renovated kitchen is comfortably well-appointed. The house is heated for your comfort in chilly weather, with fireplaces downstairs for a warm welcome on a cold day. The house is equipped with window air conditioning.

The PoorHouse is perfect for a long weekend or week or more to create perfect memories. If you are visiting Nantucket for one of the many festivals that take place during the shoulder season (including the Daffodil Weekend, the Film, Dance, Book, Wine and Cranberry Festivals, and Christmas Stroll), or are part of a wedding celebration or reunion, our house is a perfect base of operations. You will have easy access to all the activity, and yet be able to retreat to your quiet home for a much needed break.

With advanced notice, we can help you with special arrangements for golfing, sailing, tennis, a clambake, a fishing trip, catering for a special event...or almost anything you could imagine doing on Nantucket.

Well-behaved pets permitted with a higher security deposit.

Wheel chair ramp available for accessibility; main floor bedroom with twin bed and adjoining bath also for wheel chair accessibility.

Note: Initial 25% deposit is non-refundable. 75% balance is due 30 days before first day of rental period. VRBO will hold $750 security deposit in escrow account. Security deposit is returned to renter within 14 days after lease period ends, provided house is in same condition existing upon renter's arrival. Security deposit is $1500 if a pet is staying.

About David

Our family has been coming to Nantucket since the late 40's, and at this house since 1951. We are only the fourth owners of this house, built in 1806. Although we now spend most of the year in NYC, we come as often as possible to Nantucket.

David purchased this house in 1951

Why David chose Nantucket

On Nantucket there is often a tradeoff between convenience and solitude and open space. What we love about 17 Mill Street is that it offers an in town location - only a 10 minute stroll to the bottom of Main Street - while at the same time we have a large back yard and are surrounded by open space and light....and a quiet neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Often families face a challenge coordinating schedules while on vacation. Our house offers a great base of operations, and yet everyone can come and go easily at their own pace. Everything is within walking or biking distance. And yet you are in one of the quietest neighborhoods in town.
