Recent Nantucket Town reviews

  • Awesome house! Awesome location!

    "I have been renting houses on Nantucket for 15+ years now and Barntucket has become one of my favorite houses. My friends and I had the privilege of staying at Barntucket for 4 nights over Labor Day weekend. Barntucket is an absolutely beautiful antique house in a wonderful area of Nantucket - close to town and to Steps Beach. The house is super clean with a gourmet kitchen providing all the necessary cooking utensils to cook up some wonderful meals and enjoy around the large dining room table. Bedrooms were all uniquely decorated and comfortable. It has a cute little patio with a table and umbrella where we enjoyed our morning coffee or our happy hour with cheese/crackers and vino. The house is large and spacious with plenty of bathrooms for large families with plenty of privacy. One of my favorite rooms was the sun-porch in the back where I would cuddle up with a good book and relax. Now...that is what vacation is all about, right? You won't be disappointed with your stay at Barntucket. I am already looking forward to next summer and hope to stay longer."

  • perfect small family getaway

    "This cottage was perfect for our family of four. Our two boys 11 and 8 had plenty of space to play and we could relax in the front room. Its central location provides access to everything from coffee to beaches. The cottage is the perfect mix style and convenience."

  • Family fun

    "Our family had a wonderful time at this cottage. Kathy was so easy to communicate with and quick to help us. The view is amazing from the deck and the beach is so peaceful. We enjoyed long walks on the beach at low tide. It was easy to drive to town and all of the beaches. We can't wait to stay here again. Thanks, Kathy!"

Nantucket Town Travel Tips

Need Nantucket Rentals for Your Next Trip?

Located just about 30 miles off the coast of Cape Cod is Nantucket Island. The quiet harbors, sandy beaches, old mansions and gardens, dramatic cliffs, and the interesting history give Nantucket rentals an extra edge over other Cape Cod accommodations. Though the island itself is small, people come in droves to Nantucket beach homes year after year. It is best seen during the summer, but Nantucket lodging is available throughout the year.

Getting into Nantucket Rentals

Because it is an island, the only way to access your Nantucket lodging from the mainland is either by air or sea. The name of the town literally means “faraway island” and that is the way locals and tourists alike prefer it. During the summer, there are plenty of ferries and small airlines that you can choose from. In the winter, while there are still such services, their timetables are reduced. Once you get to Nantucket beach homes, you may not want to return anyway!

Seeing the Island from Nantucket Beach Homes

The island is so small that you do not always need a car to get from Nantucket rentals during the summer. A great way to see the island is by using the various two-way paved bike paths which are along each major road on the island. If you do not already have a bicycle at your Nantucket lodging, do not worry! There are plenty of bike rental shops in town that can help your whole family. With a bicycle, you will have no trouble spending the day at the lovely beaches all over the island as well.

History’s Influence on Nantucket Lodging

You cannot book Nantucket beach homes without getting a glimpse into the island’s past as the whaling capital of the world. In fact, many Nantucket rentals are homes which were built back in the 1800s. Some of the red brick homes were owned by the wealthiest of whalers back during that time. Some historic sites to see while staying at Nantucket lodging include the Brant Point Light, Sankaty Head, the Oldest House, and the Old Windmill to name a few.
