|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This gracious and comfortable vacation rental is tucked away in a bucolic setting of rolling moors, yet is only minutes from Nantucket town, just over a mile to Cisco Beach, one of the island's most popular beaches, and is in close proximity to hiking trails, ponds for kayaking, and bike paths.
Situated atop a grassy slope overlooking a duck pond, Slack Tide is the ideal retreat for families, or wedding parties. The well-landscaped grounds, with mature plantings and wraparound deck, open up the home to outdoor living, while the cook's kitchen makes whipping up a meal for a hungry family a pleasure. The open-plan kitchen and dining with adjacent formal living room, and den, are conducive to entertaining, yea also allow plenty of separate spaces for busy families with varied interests.
After a day of biking or beaching, settle into one of the comfortable chairs in front of the fireplace as you watch the deer meandering in the yard at sunset, or gather the family for a game of billiards or ping pong in the downstairs game room, or on the rolling lawn for a game of badminton, croquet or bocce ball.

A Great House for a Great Nantucket Family Vacation!
I am a Nantucket native and a second generation innkeeper. My husband of 41 years, Peter, is a charter fisherman, aboard the owner operated Althea K. We built Slack Tide 15 years ago, and have enjoyed many holidays and family memories there. To us Slack Tide is happiness.
Thea Kaizer purchased this house in 1999
We chose this lot to build our home because we loved the secluded spot in the moors, and the duck pond. We also loved the close proximity to and Cisco beach, and town, and all the miles and miles of walking trails right outside our door.
Slack Tide is the perfect place for family gatherings. We have had weddings on the lawn, birthday celebrations, christenings, and many holiday family dinners. The open plan house is conducive to entertaining, yet still quiet and away from the hustle and bustle.
Many thanks for your warm hospitality once again. We so look forward to coming to Nantucket each year, and your home makes our stay perfect.

Wonderful house for a family to rent. This home is open and spacious, has a great kitchen. The deck is right off the kitchen, we could watch the kids in the yard while enjoying the view & cocktails. Love the location as well, the bike path is close by, we rode to the beach almost everyday. We're already booked for next year!
My family rented for a week last fall. What a lovely setting, and comfortable for the family. They loved the game room, and croquet on the lawn, and all of the walking trails nearby. Had several family dinners: there are all the plates, serving dishes, and cooking utensils you could ever want or need, a cook's kitchen for sure. This will definitely be my family's Nantucket getaway!
This house was set up perfectly and had everything we needed. It had a great location for us..access to bike trails, easy drive to beaches, bike or take shuttle to town, and it was on a quiet sandy road with a great view. With the number of bathrooms (3 1/2) for my family of eight...perfect. There was plenty of space to get together or find a quiet place to read. We will definitely rent this house again if we return to Nantucket.
Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Shelling, Wildlife Viewing, Basketball Court, Horseshoes
