  • Perfect Nantucket Getaway!

    "We rented both the front house and back house for a late September wedding and were all thrilled with the accommodations. The house was stocked with all necessities, easy to locate, easy to get in, and comfortable. We all really enjoyed the outdoor patio, which was perfect for evening cocktails and early breakfasts. The location was also perfect, it was a cab ride into town, but walking distance to a deli, liquor store, grocery, and coffee shop, which all came in handy! Thank you again Mike for a great weekend retreat. Cheers!"

  • SS Loves Nantucket!

    "We really loved being in the center of town, with easy access to everything. Walking to the bus stops to get to the beaches was simple, as well as getting to the bike paths. And of course, for all the shopping and dining! Tuck'd Inn was so cute and cozy, and everything was new and fresh. We would not recommend the condo to anyone that has trouble walking since you have to walk up several stairs to get to the second floor where the entrance is to the condo, as well as upstairs in the condo to the bedroom. The inside stairs are quite steep and narrow. Also, the head room is somewhat limited in the bedroom, so extremely tall people would not be as comfortable. We will definitely consider this condo for our next stay on Nantucket."

  • Wedding Week

    "Our family rented Barntucket for the week of our daughters wedding. The layout is fantastic to accommodate a large family. The kitchen has all you need and the towels are white fluffy. The decor is rich with history and antiquity; Yet it is comfortable and welcoming. The dining table is the best for entertaining and when you have a wedding you are entertaining guest coming to the island before hand. It has it all and it's close to town. The backdrop for pictures for the before wedding shots are award winning. You will not be disappointed."

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.
