Nantucket Town cottage description

This charming, romantic, one bedroom cottage has the Nantucket flavor you are looking for. Decorated by its owners, with a distinct Nantucket flavor, it beckons you to get into the island's lifestyle and history.Its adorable, open space living area, and cozy bedroom with a garden view, set the stage for the magical week you will spend on this truly unique island.
Walk through the French doors to the deck that beckons you to have breakfast and coffee alfresco at the bistro table on the deck, before heading out for the day.
Steps away are the scenic harbor, beach, kayak and stand-up paddle rental and lessons, and gorgeous views of homes and creeks that wrap around the harbor. There are several small parks with benches across the street on the harbor, from which you can enjoy the fabulous sunrises and watch the wondrous light change over the water throughout the day. Enjoy wine and cheese in the evening while sitting and admiring the beauty of the world’s greatest island -this is a daily option simply by walking across the street.
The cottage's private garden gives an intimate feeling of being separate from town, when being alone is just the mood you are looking for.
When you are ready to stroll, the cottage is just blocks away from Nantucket’s famous Main Street and your walk along the way will bring you past more harbor views, historic homes that seemed frozen in time, world class restaurants, art galleries, boutiques, museums, and the infamous docks where millionaires and billionaires rest their yachts. Although the cottage offers one free, off-street parking place, everything on island in the summer is an easy reach from the cottage by bicycles, walking, busses or taxi.
The cottage has been professionally renovated and decorated with new furnishings and accessories including antiques collected in the many charming shops nearby. We have purchased almost all furnishings from Island merchants-as we believe in supporting the local economy. There is air-conditioning, but we recommend you use it only during the hot spells so that you can enjoy the island breezes and air that blows off the water.
There are no pets of any kind allowed in this cottage. I know that your dog is the best animal ever, but there are no exceptions.

IMPORTANT:How Nantucket summer rentals work.: Rentals of the majority of Nantucket Houses and Cottages are weekly from Saturday to Saturday during June, July and August. However if there are partial weeks open on the calendar we encourage you to call the agent and ask for the pro-rated price for a few days- a two day minimum please. Any stay under three nights will include a charge for changeover cleaning service.
Please note that the cottage is available to rent during the off-season and is a great getaway from the mainland and creates a cozy atmosphere for you to forget the outside world.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: The photo above was taken at Daffodil Festival-one of Nantucket's many holiday celebrations throughout the year that takes place in April and opens the season for everyone! This year we played on the western theme! :) To say that we love Nantucket would be an understatement-we feel called to come to the island regularly throughout the year-even in the colder months-and are drawn to the wonderful, friendly community we have come to know over the years. It is of course the magic of the island and its beaches and lively artistic spirit that keep us coming back year after year-season after season. I will continue to build on our story but to see our video that tells it all, please go to http://vimeo.com/m/41622748. Hope you come and experience our wonderful home and the magical island!!!! Sincerely, Kathy and Tom Ayars
