Property description

Air-conditioned and secluded In the Lee is in Nantucket Town's Old Historic District facing an 18th-Century quiet, working windmill. It is only a 10-minute delightful walk to shops, restaurants, theaters, beaches and Nantucket Harbor, and a 2-minute walk to the Island-wide shuttle bus stop and bike paths. Guests can walk to Brant Point, Jetties, Children’s, Francis Street and Steps beaches.

Families can enjoy In the Lee alone or w/ the nearby magnificent four-bedroom house with a wraparound porch and Adirondack chairs (see # 105381) for multigenerational reunions. This family compound sleeps 12. With this superb location -- the Island's best -- no car is necessary, but both houses have two off-street parking spaces at the end of the long, winding driveway.

This tucked-away home has a tile floor and hand-hooked hand-dyed wool rugs with Nantucket nautical and floral themes, a brick patio for relaxing, showering and grilling and beyond it is a grass backyard with enclosed shower.

Other Amenities : In the Lee also has complimentary high-speed Internet (Wi-Fi), a washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave oven, blender, coffeemaker, all linens, beach towels, all cooking utensils, fish poacher, lobster pot, charcoal BBQ grill, beach chairs (they can be carried or worn on the back and have a pouch for a cooler), books, cable TV, VCR, DVD player, sound system, children's toys, and fresh flowers.

Caretaker: The caretaker lives nearby. She therefore is able to respond quickly to tenants' needs, ensuring their comfort and enjoyment. She gives tenants literature, Island maps and the Nantucket Restaurant guide. For a fee, she will pick up groceries and supplies to stock the refrigerator before tenants arrive.
