Safe, quiet, and peaceful neighborhood. The house is meticulously clean. The property setting is quite unique with our green grassy yard, shade provided by the sassafras trees and scrub oaks, parking for two cars and if you are here at the right time...some fresh tomatoes, cukes, and basil from our garden!
Tom Nevers East is the island's best kept secret...SHHH!!
We are part of a homeowners association that for the past 28+ years has taken great pride in the efforts made to maintain our six miles of private, surfaced roads that are well marked, easily accessed and in good condition always with the safety and security of our friends and neighbors in mind.
Thank you so much for the enchanted time in the enchanted cottage. I already miss it.
My husband and I just returned from our stay in this wonderful cottage. We have stayed in many places around the island and this was our favorite in this price range. The house is so lovingly maintained by Christine and Bob. They met us on arrival to give us a tour of the house, vegetables from their garden, a bottle of wine and a plate of delicious cookies! Everything is sparkling clean. The bed and linens are very comfortable. The sitting area off the upstairs bedroom is beautiful and very comfortable for relaxing on a rainy day. Christine has provided a good assortment of books and magazines. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking, there is a nice grill just outside the kitchen door. The yard is so quiet and peaceful for enjoying time outdoors. Great outdoor shower! It is very shaded with the sun just peaking through the branches. The sitting area overlooks their beautiful garden. Christine has thought of every last detail inside and out to make guests comfortable. Bob was always eager to hear our fishing stories when we met in the driveway. We really enjoyed getting to know this wonderful couple and learn their perspective of this beautiful island. We felt so welcome as they are very friendly but not at all intrusive. The location of this home is wonderful as well. In a neighborhood of well maintained homes with a lot of privacy, just a short bicycle ride to a quiet beach, and a nice ride to S'conset as well. It was a perfect place to relax and we can't wait to return again next year.
We had an amazing vacation. The home was very welcoming, clean and neat as a pin. My daughter described it as a magical fairy house. As we first entered the driveway the green trees surrounded the drive and the house was sweetly nestled in. The owners had a beautiful garden and the bunnies would always be hopping around it eating grass. We spent a lot of time in the yard. There were colorful adirondack chairs and also an antique iron table and chairs. We would sit out there for almost every meal. Christine had herbs in a colorful pot right there if we wanted to use them. Everything we needed for cooking on the grill was supplied and propane refills are there if you need it. The outdoor clothesline was handy for when we came back from the beach. Christine and Bob had chairs, towels and a beach umbrella for the beach so you don't have to lug those over on the ferry. The kitchen had everything you needed for cooking and Christine started us out with condiments, oil, bags, foil etc. to get us started. The house had air conditioning units which enabled us to keep out any pollen in case you have allergies (and yes I do) so my allergies did great here.
The area is so beautiful with the natural vegetation left around all the houses and long dirt driveways leading in. It was like stepping back in time. We really liked how it wasn't full of mansions with manicured yards but natural and SO beautiful. Christine suggested many places to visit. Sunset at Sankaty Lighthouse, sunset at Madaket Beach, hike to Altar Rock (park in the third parking area for the shortest walk), sunsets at the Serengeti Fields off Milestone Road. There are so many different types of landscape here: moors, grasslands, beach, serengeti,and forest. Spend time to explore the island to check it all out. Walking around the downtown area is fun and the architecture is so beautiful and the cobblestone streets are quaint - just be careful of the one way streets if you are driving. There isn't a lot of signage on getting to specific places so pick up a good road map at the Visitors Center on Federal Street. My favorite spot was Sconset -it was like another world. The roses covering the cottages were in full bloom in June . There is a cliff walk along the front of the houses that starts in town between houses (no signs so just explore) and goes for about 1/2 mile. Cisco brewery/winery/distillery is a fun afternoon. We will definitely be back to this Island !!!!!
We were first-timers to Nanctucket, and we fell in love with the island and with this cottage! We loved the privacy of the cottage’s location. As city-dwellers, we found it a true getaway. We also loved being close to beaches (with seals!) where we were nearly on our own, as well as the proximity to Sconset and Sankaty Lighthouse. Just as our hosts promised, the lighthouse offered great views of the island. The hosts were terrific (and even shared some fresh veggies from their garden + homemade cookies!) and very responsive. The cottage is adorable.… pristine, picture perfect, and stocked with everything we needed or wanted. The cottage was our base for a perfect week—we can’t wait to return!
Christine and Bob were wonderful hosts of their cute cottage in Tom Nevers! We were able to check in early and were greeted with a loaf of zucchini bread, yum! The cottage was perfect for our family of 4; we enjoyed the area, accessibility to the bike path to Sconset, and distance to beaches. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return!
Nestled in the "woods" of Tom Nevers, Bob and Christine's property is a gem. Surrounded by trees, a delicious garden and a beautifully kept yard this cottage is a lovely refuge.
Fall asleep in complete darkness and stillness, and wake early to chirping birds. A well equipped kitchen and grill, it's perfect for the home cook. Chistine gets you started with condiments and coffee ... and if you are lucky, home baked cookies!
For those not familiar with Nantucket, Tom Nevers is removed from the main town. I'd recommend a car since the town shuttle/bus service doesn't venture down Tom Nevers Road. The beach is close for those ocean lovers.
Bob and Christine are great hosts - available if they need them, leaving you alone if you don't. A lovely getaway!!
This cottage was utter perfection for our honeymoon. Christine and Bob had prepared home-made cookies and had mini bottles of champagne for us to celebrate when we arrived.
The cottage was spotless. Any amenities (shampoo, soap, cleaning supplies) had been thoughtfully provided - from experience, this is not always the case.
The outdoor shower is glorious - we used this everyday when we got back from the beach.
The cottage is a little removed from the bus stop, but if you have bikes, it is no problem. It is a quick ride into the charming village of Sconset (~10 minutes). We brought a car and bikes so it was very easy for us to manage, though you would definitely be fine without a car.
Christine and Bob were the perfect hosts - they had everything we could have wanted, and we absolutely loved honeymooning at this place!
