Beautiful cottage on a private lane at the edge of town. Walk to gourmet restaurants and boutiques. Sunny days, sunset views of the meadow, and quiet starry nights.

About Karen

We are a family with four children, who often travel with grandparents or another guest.

Why Karen chose Nantucket Town

Nantucket is a wonderful family place, great for gourmet food and peaceful vacations too. The waterfront and beach are amazing, and the people are welcoming and always interesting.

What makes this house unique

Quiet sunsets, private yard and patio. Close enough to town for walks, and yet far enough for privacy. We have had parties on the deck, crab races,and wonderful gatherings with friends. A great place for a weekend or reunion.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The kitchen was superbly supplied allowing us to prepare any and all locally provided sea food and fresh vegetables."

Fabulous location and yard!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Karen's cottage in Nantucket! The house is nestled at the end of a quiet road surrounded by foliage. I came down with my husband and another couple --- we had plenty of space and thoroughly enjoyed spending time on the deck watching the bunnies hop around. The outdoor shower is fantastic as is the yard; we were kicking ourselves for not bringing our bocce set! I would recommend to both couples and families who would like to spend a relaxing time on Nantucket. We ended up bringing our car on island to travel around a bit, however if you could easily bike from town if needed. Hoping to do it again next year!

Made for a wonderful weekend.

House was cute, yard is wonderful, end of a quiet dead end street. Spacious living room perfect for family/friend games or lounging. Three queens, bunk beds, and a pullout. Highly recommend. Deck was amazing - I proposed there! Some added history to the house :)

Very nice rental.

  • 4 of 5

My sisters and niece had a great time in this spacious home with a wonderful private backyard. A quick bike ride to town and beaches. We did have some rainy weather, but just used Uber for rides to restaurants if needed.
