About Barbara A. White
My husband and I taught in the Nantucket public schools for over 30 years. Mark taught English and drama and I taught history. I am a local history fellow and specialize in the island's rich black history. I have several books in the local bookstores including "A Line in the Sand" about Nantucket's school integration crisis in the 1840s. I also wrote "Hidden History of Nantucket" with a friend, a collection of quirky Nantucket stories. We are avid travelers and have taken advantage of our retirement to do as much travel as we can.
Why Barbara A. White chose Nantucket

Another year, another cheer for Barbara and Mark's cozy beach cottage, our home away from home. As usual a fabulous two weeks spent at this lovely cottage. Everything is at your disposal, great amenities, beautiful surroundings and not to forget, gracious hosts. You can't beat this wonderful opportunity! Bob and Rena, Whiting, N.J.
Another great week on Nantucket
Loved every minute of our third stay at the cottage. Hosts Barbara and Mark are warm and friendly and have thought of everything necessary for a relaxing stay. We loved the new deck furniture and enjoying the last rays of sunshine out back every afternoon!
If you are deciding whether to book the cottage-there is an abundance of natural beauty and wildlife. We regularly saw deer, bunnies, pheasants, and hawks. We could hear the ocean waves crashing at night and the stars were so close we felt we could reach out for them. The cottage is a few minutes walk to the beach through the dunes. This is a little slice of heaven on earth.
We had the most wonderful stay at Barbara's cute beach cottage. The house was clean and cozy, the beds were very comfortable and Barbara provided every amenity we needed for our stay. It's a quick walk to the beach with a private beach path, which really made the house the perfect location for us. We loved getting to know Barb and her husband, who were the most delightful hosts! We will definitely be back.
What a fantastic stay! This well-appointed cottage was just a short walk away from the beach. Barbara was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to make our week absolutely perfect. I highly recommend this gem - you can’t go wrong with the location or the hospitality. We hope to return!
How can you go wrong with guests like these? They were terrific in every way, including caring for the cottage as if it were their own. Thank you.
Another terrific stay!
This was our second time staying at Barbara's cottage and it couldn't have been better. The property, location, nearby activities and lovely hosts. It was a perfect stay and a great value for an expensive island. We look forward to returning soon!
We are close to both Nobadeer and Surfside Beaches and 3 1/2 miles from the town of Nantucket. On the map, we are on Pochick - to the left of Adams Street and to the right of Irving. Google Maps does not place the cottage correctly. Note: Pochick is a bumpy dirt road.
Other Activities: Bird watching
Golf: Nantucket has several private, exclusive golf courses as well as one public course: Miacomet Golf Course.
