This charming, romantic, one bedroom cottage has the Nantucket flavor you are looking for. Wonderful in any season!
Professionally decorated by the owners , with a distinct Nantucket flavor, it beckons you to get into the island's lifestyle and history. Its adorable, open space living area, and cozy bedroom with a garden view, set the stage for the magical week you will spend on this truly unique island.
Walk through the French doors to the deck that beckons you to have breakfast and coffee alfresco at the bistro table on the deck, before heading out for the day.
Steps away are the scenic harbor, beach, kayak and stand-up paddle rental and lessons, and gorgeous views of homes and creeks that wrap around the harbor. There are several small parks with benches across the street on the harbor, from which you can enjoy the fabulous sunrises and watch the wondrous light change over the water throughout the day. Enjoy wine and cheese in the evening while sitting and admiring the beauty of the world’s greatest island -this is a daily option simply by walking across the street.
The cottage's private garden gives an intimate feeling of being separate from town, when being alone is just the mood you are looking for.
When you are ready to stroll, the cottage is just blocks away from Nantucket’s famous Main Street and your walk along the way will bring you past more harbor views, historic homes that seemed frozen in time, world class restaurants, art galleries, boutiques, museums, and the infamous docks where millionaires and billionaires rest their yachts. Although the cottage offers one free, off-street parking place, everything on island in the summer is an easy reach from the cottage by bicycles, walking, busses or taxi.
The cottage has been professionally renovated and decorated with new furnishings and accessories including antiques collected in the many charming shops nearby. We have purchased almost all furnishings from Island merchants-as we believe in supporting the local economy. There is air-conditioning In the main living area but not in the bedroom although the cool air circulates.We recommend you use it only during the rare hot spells so that you can enjoy the island breezes and air that blows off the water.
This is a housekeeping cottage meaning that you will be asked to wash your sheets and towels and tidy up before departing.
There are no pets of any kind allowed in this cottage. I know that your dog is the best animal ever, but there are no exceptions.
IMPORTANT:How Nantucket summer rentals work.: Rentals of the majority of Nantucket Houses and Cottages are by the week only from Saturday to Saturday during June, July and August. We rent weekly only in July and August. Please note that the cottage is available to rent during the off-season and is a great getaway from the mainland and creates a cozy atmosphere for you to forget the outside world.
We think you will see what we mean!:)
The photo above was taken at Daffodil Festival-one of Nantucket's many holiday celebrations throughout the year that takes place in April and opens the season for everyone! This year we played on the western theme! :)
To say that we love Nantucket would be an understatement-we feel called to come to the island regularly throughout the year-even in the colder months-and are drawn to the wonderful, friendly community we have come to know over the years. It is of course the magic of the island and its beaches and lively artistic spirit that keep us coming back year after year-season after season.
Hope you come and experience our wonderful home and the magical island!!!!

Location, location, location near the harbor and charming in town living with a lovely garden and interior space.
Interior is designed an decorated by owners, using a mix of antiques and modern décor and a variety of wallcovering that add charm and warmth while still feeling beachy.
very cutely and nicely decorated...every surface covered with beachy knickknacks. Unfortunately there was major construction going on across narrow street the entire time we were there....15 workers, 12 hours a day including Sunday and July 4th! Then on day 5 they had a man spend the day building a fence along the back property line 4 feet off the kitchen winodw and back door! It was hard to pay what we were paying and smile and be a good sport about it but we felt that both the local broker and owners should have disclosed this ahead of time. It was far from our fantasy vacation. Also spent many phone calls the first 2 days trying to get the Internet password, then spent time over the next couple days dealing with the bath towels being unusable due to mildew. Then waited 6 weeks for security deposit refund. All in all cute but too small and not worth it.
Perfect romantic cottage on a quiet side street just outside of downtown. We were able to walk every where all weekend. Dealing with Kathy was great and the place was exactly how it was described.
The cottage is steps from the harbor beach, three blocks from the new hip coffee shop, art galleries, South Wharf Galleries, The local Surf Shop, bus terminal, chic shops, kayak and stand up paddle rentals, in town restaurants, the docks, ( stroll through the docks and admire the yachts etc.) ice cream shops, museums, bookstores and all that Main Street has to offer with its cobblestones streets and wonderful shops. Everything in town is easily in walking distance.
|Refundable damage deposit||$400|
There are absolutely no pets allowed... no matter how well behaved or cute they are.
Occupancy is limited to 2 people. If you have additional people you will forfeit your security deposit and be charged an additional $400.00 per person per night.
