About Dr. Robert Sarvis

Retired professionals who love the island and have vacationed on Nantucket for more than 40 years and have retired to the island.

Dr. Robert Sarvis purchased this cottage in 1982

Why Dr. Robert Sarvis chose Nantucket Town

The cottage has all of the advantages of being in-town, yet you have the privacy and quite of the conservation area that surrounds the property. You can walk to downtown and all of Nantucket's great restaurants. The conservation area has wonderful hiking paths where you will see all of the native birds. Two cardinals have lived in our hydrangeas for many years. The privet enclosed backyard is private and safe for children with beautiful gardens full of hydrangeas and roses, and sheltered by an antique oak tree.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is centrally located within the Nantucket Historic District. The Old Mill and other historic sites are nearby. All beaches are easily walked or biked to. The bike path across the street connects with all of Nantucket's wonderful bike paths, making biking all over the island convenient and safe for children and adults alike. While there is off street parking for two cars, a car is not a necessity. Grocery shopping is a short walk. A bus stop is at the end of the street. Nantucket's seasonal bus transportation takes you to all areas of the island like Siasconst and Madaket.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's a beautiful clean comfortable home with all the needed amenities.

  • 5 of 5

My sister's family had a wonderful stay in this house during my daughter's wedding. They walked several times into town and enjoyed doing so.

The house is beautifully furnished and has all the amenities anyone could want.

Dr. Sarvis was very responsive to our questions and needs.

It was a very good value and we highly recommend it.

Great house, plenty of room, not a 5 min walk to Main Street

  • 4 of 5

Great place with more room than we even needed. Everything was clean and comfortable. Only issue is that the property is not a 5 min walk to Main Street as advertised. Its about 15 and then a 10 min walk to town. Its doable but distance with grandparents and children was more than we could do so we ended up taking lots of Ubers.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

House was great and nicer in person than pictures make it seem. Backyard was lovely to relax and enjoy in the afternoon. You can walk to the grocery store and a few other stores under 10 mins. Downtown is more like a 15-20 min walk or easy Uber ride away. There’s a master on the first floor and upstairs is a full/queen bedroom with a small couch, additionally upstairs is a bedroom with two twin beds and a separate room that has a couch that pulls out to a bed. Would prob be best suitable for kids. Upstairs has shared bathroom. Downstairs kitchen and living room were open and roomy considering the size of the house.

Cute house, easy stay!

Very nice house! We came for a wedding weekend. Easy enough to Uber into town - it’s about a mile from the ferry. Would recommend it

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is beautiful both inside and out. The location is also excellent. The backyard is private and the landscaping is phenomenal. Very private, large enough for a family with all the amenities you could want. I would definitely recommend it or stay again if I went to the island.
