"We have been renting in 'Sconset for years and I always loved Broadway and Center Street just north of the historic town pump. Ivy Lodge (as we learned on our tour) is one of the original 44 cottages of 'Sconset dating back to 1745. We also learned the old mulberry tree in the back yard is one of 3 remaining on Nantucket from 1740 when islanders made a failed attempt at growing silk worms. So much history and beauty within 50 yards of this home, I couldn't get enough.
This is not a gut rehabbed home that has been stripped of its fine character. You feel like you are walking right into a page of history. This home is situated smack dab in the middle of where most of the 'Sconset post cards are photographed and the well known artist/painter William "Bill" Welch does many of his beautiful water colors. It was a true Nantucket experience that we would highly recommend.
As for the house itself: The pictures are true to form. It is very comfortable, plenty of natural light. The front porch makes a nice setting for dinners or drinks after a day of exploring. The beds are very comfortable and it appears the mattresses are high quality and new. I particularly liked the second floor of North as it reminded me of sleeping in a whaling ship with all the beaded pine and angled ceilings. You can even hear the ocean from your bedroom, the air is so still and quiet at night. The heavy salt air had me sleeping like a baby."

"The owner couldn't have been more accommodating for our trip to Nantucket. House was in pristine condition when we arrived. Perfect for a family vacation- 3 floors of living provide space and privacy for everyone."

Great family vacation, walking distance to downtown!
"This was our second time visiting Nantucket, but our first since having children. This is a great house, and super convenient, right off of main street and less than a 15 minute walk to the Children's Beach. The house itself is excellently maintained with modern fixtures, while also keeping an historic charm. The kids especially loved the arts and crafts space in the attic. The large, eat in kitchen was great for family meals on rainy days, and the patio was perfect for grilling and eating outside on sunny days. Everyone got a kick out using the outdoor shower after a long day at the beach also! I cannot say enough great things about Pleasant Times, as it made a great vacation to a magical place even more special."
