About Alison MacDonald

We are lovers and restorers of antique homes. This is one of three homes on Nantucket that we have restored. This house dates back to 1800. A succession of coopers and mariners owned the house in the first half of the nineteenth century, including master mariners William Pitman and William Barney. Daniel T. Dunham purchased the property in 1855, and it remained in his family until 1904. Ella Wyer, who lived at 1 West Chester with her husband, William H., bought the house at 3 West Chester in 1905; their son Irvin Wyer became the owner of both properties, and in 1944 he recorded the current plot plan for the property when he sold 3 West Chester to George and Mildred Roosevelt. The Reeses acquired the parcel behind the house in 1981. We are the third owners since then.

Alison MacDonald purchased this chateau / country house in 2004

Why Alison MacDonald chose Nantucket

We have been renting this property out during the summer for the last six years and people just love it! It usually sells out pretty quickly. This is one of the larger houses that can be rented with modern amenities that is easy walking distance of all that town offers.This property is down the road from the White Elephant and Brant point, Nantucket Hotel is around the corner.The Whaling museum is a block away, close to the ferries. We see a lot of family parties and weddings where people want to house and sleep a lot of people but also want privacy. The guest cottage is perfect for that. The property is well designed for entertaining and accommodating the needs of all ages with three distinct spaces with outdoor furniture.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

If baby, and toddler equipment is needed we recommend Nantucket Cribs [ 508-228-5200 ] who deliver to the property.Also Petite travelers.com and Nantucket babyrentals.com will deliver everything that you might need.

Ideal Location and Special House

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed at this special house two years in a row and loved it! The location is ideal--quiet but steps from town. Our teens could easily get places on their own. All 13 of us fit with no problem. The house feels historical but with modern updates and everything is pretty and fresh with lots of blues and greens throughout. The kitchen is especially great with lots of counter space and all the tools you need. The guest cottage is also lovely and so close that the two spaces feel like one. Not a lot of outdoor space but enough and we ate outside many nights. One thing to know is that one bedroom is only accessible through another bedroom. The owners were also very easy to work with (not always the case!)--filled the house with fresh flowers for our arrival and responded to any concerns we had. Overall, fantastic house.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a family wedding to attend and this property was perfect. We stayed there with our five kids and their partners, as well as one of our sisters and two brothers. There was still room left over! We also hosted a BBQ and Sunday Brunch and cooked for 35 people each time. The two kitchens were great and all the refrigerators were very helpful. The property is very close to everything in town and a lovely beach. Oh yes..and by the way, the entire place is beautiful.

Our Great Nantucket Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful home and guest cottage. It was ideal for our large family. Everyone had plenty of room. We especially enjoyed the three garden patios. The location was great too. We could easily walk to town, but also weren't far from Steps Beach. We also walked to Jetties Beach for dinner one evening. The main house has the feel of history and we enjoyed reading about it once was owned by one of Theodore Roosevelt's cousins. We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. We've already signed up for next year!

Enchanting

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! We were there with our whole family for an anniversary celebration. There was plenty of room for everyone, a great place to stay for children and adults. Near the town so anyone could walk there. Comfortable and modern but an old house atmosphere. Lots of room for everyone to eat at the same time. Loved it!
