Squam house description

Relax and enjoy ‘Old Nantucket’ simplicity and tranquility during your stay at our beach house and guest cottage. This is a great place to kick back, enjoy nature, write a book, or have just have summer fun. Our location on Nantucket’s desirable east coast is convenient to town and the airport (15 min to either) but far, far away from the summer tourism bustle.

Inside living is simple, colorful and comfortable. A huge living room/dining room features a large, working, stone fireplace and oceanviews from every window. Our country-style kitchen is fully equipped and there’s a gas-grill just outside the door.

The Main House has two bedroom suites (one has a queen bed the other has twin beds). Each suite has a sleeping room (with a non-working fireplace), two walk-in closets (one with built-in shelves and drawers) and a full bath. The guest cottage is quaint and rustic. It offers one queen bedroom, one bunk room with cots (suitable for kids), a day bed and two utility bathrooms with showers. The cottage houses a full-size washer and dryer, extra refrigerator and lots of indoor storage for bikes, beach equipment, etc.

A big wraparound deck overlooks a large level yard and a private path that leads to the over-500 feet of private beach on the wide-open Atlantic. You can swim, stroll, fish or just sunbathe without ever getting into your car. The house is also within walking distance to Sesachacha Pond...an idyllic spot, perfect beach for families with young children.

Come stay in our little piece of paradise this summer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1946

About the owner: The third generation in the family is managing the house, while the fourth generation is coming of age. My grandparents started coming to Nantucket in the 1930's, and every generation since has enjoyed this unique summer retreat.

Why the Owner Chose Squam:
The house was urchased by my grandparents, after they first saw it on their honeymoon. They were looking for a place to vacation with their growing family, and this house and spot on the east coast of Nantucket hooked them. So they made it happen that it was theirs.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What brings us back time and again is the simplicity of living without the hustle and bustle of our regular busy lives, and the sheer beauty of the ocean and weather that dominates our lives when we're at our little piece of heaven.
