"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."

"We truly enjoyed our visit! The location is perfect for both relaxation and adventure in a comfortable just like home environment. Everything about the property was more than we expected. There was plenty of space, a large accommodating kitchen, beautiful vistas and everything we needed to enjoy our stay. It was a wonderful vacation and we look forward to returning next year! Also, we want to thank our hosts for their hospitality and for going a bit extra to make our stay on Nantucket a wonderful memory."

"We had an absolutely amazing weekend at the cottage! Went with a couple girlfriends for the long weekend. We spent a lot of time relaxing on the porches and laying in the hammock. The hosts were gracious and helpful. Couldn't have asked for anything better-- we loved calling the cottage our home for the weekend! Counting the minutes until we return. Thank you for a memorable, happy and fun trip!"
