Cute cottage attached to main house. Skylight over kitchen, exposed beam ceiling. Location is one mile to Cisco Beach, the best surf beach on the Island. Cottage is next to a fish market, a quarter mile from the Island's only brewery/winery, and one mile from one of the last working farms on the Island, so one can be comfortable without the bustle of Town. Nantucket Town, with spectacular restaurants, a whaling museum and boutique shopping on cobblestone streets, is about 2 miles away. The cottage is on the bike path, and the NRTA bus stop is 1/2 mile away. There is off street parking if you bring a car, but a car isn't necessary. There are free ranging hens in the back yard, ask the owner and you'll have fresh eggs for breakfast. In the back are miles of conservation trails for peaceful walks. The cottage has a full bath with shower. One bedroom with full bed. In the living area is a full sleeper sofa so the cottage can accommodate 4. Kitchen has gas stove and oven, fridge with ice maker and all utensils.

About the owner: I'm a psychologist who is an avid organic vegetable gardener. I occasionally host 'WWOOF' (World Wide Opportunities in Organic Farming) volunteers from all over the globe, to assist with my extensive gardens in the back. I practice Qigong. I have hens, goats, pigs and ducks and a goldendoodle named Sophie.
Why the Owner Chose Cisco: This property sits on the remnants of a farm, last farmed a generation ago. The owner is interested in the local food movement and organic gardening, and this property is a great location to carry out those interests.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: This area is particularly pastoral with one of the last working farms on Nantucket very nearby. Behind the cottage is my 'farmlet' with extensive gardens and the animals. If you enjoy this sort of environment, this property is unique, but it is also quite close to Town.
