"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."

"Our girls group stayed here for an awesome weekend in Nantucket! Both houses were nice and clean upon arrival. Very spacious and beautiful furniture. Location was perfect -- We enjoyed the quick trip to town, both walking and by bike. Also it was so convenient to have coffee shop, small store, sandwich spot, and fun bars all very close to the house! Marcus, the owner, was great to work with. We made dinner at home both nights and grilled one night on the back patio. The kitchens were both equipped with everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again and will be recommending it to friends visiting Nantucket!"

"'Hunky Dory' is a beautiful, well kept home! We enjoyed a fun girls weekend in April 2015 at the home, and we all wished we stayed longer! The house was spacious, yet cozy. Plenty of beds/rooms to spread out, and the kitchen was a great size too. The owner is very quick to respond to any questions, and easy to get ahold of! We hope to come back in the future!!"

"Our family of 15 had a wonderful week. The home was perfect. We had family wiffle ball and bocci tournements. Our hosts left gifts for us and checked in twice to make sure all was good. They gave us great reccomendations and because it made sense for us we had most dinners catered in. Everything about the home was as good as advertised. Hope to return one day."
