About Dan Wofford
I am a lawyer from the Philadelphia region. My wife and I, along with our two teen age sons, have been coming to Nantucket for many years. This house is owned in trust by brother, sister and me. I manage the house on behalf of the family. We generally use it ourselves in August and rent in June, July and September. We love the house and its special place amidst the moors on a bluff overlooking the south shore.
Dan Wofford purchased this House in 1977
Why Dan Wofford chose Madequecham
My parents brought our family to Nantucket in the early 1970s.Our family fell in love with the South shore. Back when land was affordable, my parents bought this lot and built the house we are offering to you for rent. My late mother designed the house to maximize the interior space and the surrounding views. Just 150 feet from the ocean, our house is surrounded by mooors, has a virtually private beach, yet is just 15 minutes from the Town of Nancuket.
What makes this House unique
Unique and very private beach front; unparalleled privacy; remarkable moors surrounding property, whose shades of color change as the day progresses. We sit on the edge of Madquesham Valley, with an expansive view of rolling moors to the east. From our wrap-around deck, the sunrises, sunsets and starry nights are breathtaking.

Great house and spectacular location.
Everything including the weather was very good.
Thanks for the great review! Appreciate the feedback.
Rustic and remote.....comfortable and convenient
Owners did a great job welcoming my family and friends, from directions to suggestions, follow up to follow through.
Perfect combination of rugged nature with conveniences for all. Away from it all, yet close enough to get into town when you want. When there, you feel a world away, in a very special place, with rough surf, inquisitive seals, morning mists, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, a constant fresh breeze.
House is basic and functional. Beds are very comfortable, kitchen is well organized, and there is plenty of hot water.
You want to come here if you truly enjoy the natural beauty and stark realism of the south shore of Nantucket. Those worthy of appreciating the surrounding moors and the timelessness of place should not hesitate to go.
We had a wonderfully relaxing vacation in this spacious home, with terrific oceanfront views. The soundtrack of waves hitting the shore became a background that was very hard to leave, as was the deserted, spectacular beach (with an easier walk down to it than many other homes in Nantucket). And we've never rented a home from anyone as gracious, warm and hospitable as Dan Wofford -- they broke the mold with him. All in all, our two weeks here in Paradise afforded a great escape from the stresses of real life.
Perfect Beach House
Perfect beach house in an incredible location and one of the best houses I have rented on Nantucket. The house is very comfortable with incredible views, a ton of privacy for Nantucket and a short walk to a great beach. Dan was a pleasure to work with as well.
Perfect vacation home!
We rented this house for an extended family special occasion and were all just thrilled with it. The house is spacious and comfortable with lots of land around it so it feels very private. The ocean view is just spectacular—better than it looks in the photos, and there’s easy access to the beach, which also feels very private. The owner is very communicative, gracious, and easy to work with, and made the extra effort to make sure our experience was as enjoyable as possible. This place has everything you could want in a vacation home!
We stayed late September/Early October and thoroughly enjoyed this house. It is very accurately described and the owner, Dan, is a pleasure to work with. It is a very comfortable home that is well furnished and equipped with everything you would need for your beach vacation. The location is great too and is very private with lovely views.
