  • Hidden Gem, Fabuous location

    "Our stay in this wonderful little cottage was outstanding! It is beautifully decorated with high end furnishings, appliances and wonderfully comfortable beds. Extremely well located at the top of Main Street and very quiet. The owners are absolutely wonderful, interesting people, who were ready to assist us in any way and invited us to see their lovely historical home adjacent to this rental which was delightful. This cottage is a hidden gem with everything in pristine condition. We also enjoyed the study downstairs with a half bath for reading a book or watching TV as well as the outdoor patio. Our stay saw the crowds empty out just after Labor Day but the weather is still gorgeous enough for the beaches. A few favorites include drinks at Cru, dinner at Straight Wharf and also The Galley (located on Jetties Beach with spectacular sunsets) as well as Chanticleer in Sconset which resembles an old inn with a fabulous garden. We highly recommend a stay at this property and hope to return again next summer."

  • Great spot for a weekend in Nantucket

    "My wife and I were in town for a wedding and wanted a house rather than a hotel room. This was perfect for the two of us. House is very comfortable (could have easily housed a couple more people) and was well equipped with everything you need. It is an easy walk into town (maybe 20 minutes) but nice and quiet at the house. A great spot and we'd certainly rent it again the next time we need a house in Nantucket."

  • 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.
