Transportation on the island: As seen in many of our reviews, the cottage is so conveniently located that a car is not necessary. However, if you choose to bring your vehicle you must make a reservation at the Steamship Authority well in advance to ensure space is available during the week of your visit. Due to the limited availability on the car ferry, the island offers several options for bicycles, moped and car rentals. Additionally the NRTA Island Shuttle goes almost everywhere on the island for only $2.00 per person each way. The closest NRTA stop is just a few hundred yards down the road. The shuttle runs on a regular schedule, approximately every 20 minutes. For more information on car, bike and moped rentals please feel free to call or email us!
Dining on the island: Nantucket is an island of the culinary arts! There are countless restaruants to choose from. The cottage comes with a guide to all the hot spots on the island. Keep in mind, being an island, Nantucket offers some of the best seafood in the world! If seafood is not your preference, there are many other establishments that you will certainly enjoy!
Best of all, dining on the island is comprable in cost to dining on the mainland. While many may think that as an island, prices would be much higher, they are in fact not! They are comparable to prices in most metropolitan areas. There are plenty of family friendly establishments that are perfect for families with little ones.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We fell in love with Nantucket on our very first visit back in 2007. After spending only 14 days on the island, we were hooked. We bought in the fall of that year, did major renovations over the winter and haven't looked back. One of our favorite things to do, whether its on the beach or strolling the cobble stones of Main Street is to look back on all the fantastic times our family has already had in our cottage and to dream about the what is certain to be a fantastic future on Nantucket! Our son and daughter, 7 and 3 years of age already agree that a little bit of Heaven can be found on Nantucket!
It is truly our hope that you'll be bitten by the Nantucket Bug as well and that you'll consider our cottage your summer home for years to come. Most of our renters repeat year after year. We would love to add you to that list!
