The Best Trip!
"Steps from the ferry so bring your bikes! The apartment looks exactly like the photos: tastefully decorated, wide plank flooring in a nautical blue, modern kitchen with everything you need to cook and a big comfy chair with a lovely view. Convenient location to Still Dock, shopping and also the buses to the beaches. Nancy provides beach chairs, towels and umbrella. Perfect for a couple on a getaway!"

"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 family of 4 had a GREAT time at this place! There was more than enough room! The location could not have been any better. Our girls were able to bicycle to town, feed the ducks, Stop & Shop ... We were all able to walk to town which saves a bundle on cab fare. The house is supplied with more than enough towels/beach towels/beach chairs. Not that we needed that much. Love having a full size wsher/dryer. The outdoor shower was a plus. We were lucky enough to be in the house for 2 weeks and had a great time. The air conditioners in each room were a pleasant surprise! I do not like it - so I was able to sleep comfortably and my girls and husband love it - and they too - slept great. Bill was hands on and very detailed in the whole rental process. Although I messed up our dates - Bill was kind enough to offer us a room in his own home - who does that? We will back on the island again next year! This house may be "quaint" yet it works for a family of 4 or could work for a gang of 10 easily!"
