  • Perfect cottage

    "We stayed at the cottage for our honeymoon and it was perfect! It was close enough to town to walk; however, we mostly rode the bikes into town, which was a quick and easy ride. Having the bikes available was wonderful and we took them all over the island as the cottage was in such a central location. The actual place was clean and had everything we needed - we especially liked having the kitchen so we could save some money by cooking for ourselves. We loved this place and cannot wait to come back!"

  • Very Convenient location

    "Spent a week at this house and it worked out very well. It is a perfect mid-Island spot to get around from on foot, bike and WAVE. Also convenient to a fish market, liquor store and the Nantucket Bake Shop !!! What more can you want? Biked to Surfside and Cisco; took the WAVE to Siasconset. Restaurants are nearby as well and the Stop & Shop is just a mile. A great location at a house with bunny rabbits and on a quiet road for sleeping and bicycling."

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.
