About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 1 half bath, sleeps 6; Carriage House optional bedroom

Ideal Nantucket home for couples or a family. Very private renovated house sleeps six, 2.5 baths. Private enclosed backyard, ideal for children. Outstanding location just off Cliff Road; 7 minute walk to beach, 15 minute walk to town. Close to the Westmoor Club, bicycle paths, Something Natural, Steps and Washing Pond Beaches. Main house has been recently upgraded to include Central Air and Heat throughout. Optional additional separate bedroom available (sleeps one) with private bath, in the carriage house, making it a very private 4 bedroom rental, if desired.

Surrounding Area: Our house is located on a charming rural country road (unpaved) at the edge of town, but an easy walk to beaches and a 15 minute walk to town center. We overlook wetlands, the Westmoor Club beyond, and are far enough off Cliff Road so there is minimal traffic noise, yet easy access. We have mature landscaping, so in season the house cannot be seen from the road. Both the front and rear yards are exceptionally private - the rear yard is enclosed and has two gated entrances, so it is perfect for young children (we have two). We are also quite near the Cliff Road bicycle path, so that is always an enjoyable activity and a good way to see more of the island - especially the bay side beaches (Steps, Washing Pond, etc)

Restaurants: We are within a 5 to 15 minute drive of all the resort restaurants, but given the privacy and setting of the house, we find both ourselves and guests frequently dining and relaxing on the rear deck with a barbecue, or a more formal meal if desired. We have a restaurant pedigree DCS oven suitable for all professional cooking purposes.

Perfect summer house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 37 Pilgrim for a week at the very end of August , a family of four with two teenaged boys. Even though the weather wasn't always cooperating, it was one of our best vacations and the house had a lot to do with it. It felt like staying at a friend's house rather than a rental. Everything was so well thought through and meticulously cared for: the bright sunny rooms, the comfortable beds, the entertainment center, the kitchen stocked for a serious cook (I was particularly impressed with the sharp knives), and the crown jewel - the deck. As others have commented, the location of the house can't be beat - walking distance to the beach and to town. We didn't bring a car and we didn't miss it. The owner and the caretakers were very responsive and went out of their way to make our stay worry free. We can't wait to come back.

Well Cared For House

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Nantucket for 20 years and have stayed all over the island. This is a jewel of a house. It is extremely well cared for -- everything is buff, in the right place and thought through. Setting and landscape, with a glorious shell driveway entrance, is attractive. Location is just far enough from town to be out of the commotion but close enough for a quick bike ride. Steps beach is a 3 minute bike ride away. Central air was nice and is not to be under-appreciated I must say -- even on an island. The kitchen is well stocked and the seating area is comfortable, both inside and on the back deck.

Charming house in a prized location

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several times at great in town homes and 37 Pilgrim is tops among our terrific choices over the years. The house is immecibly cared for and the owner and his staff work very hard to make your stay perfecto. Location is a nice walk to town and steps from the running and biking path and Steps Beach for the best sunsets on the island. We enjoyed hosting friends for dinner because the house has so much to offer with inviting grounds, great kitchen, quaint deck and beautiful family room equipped with state of the art technology. Every room is warmly appointed and follows throughout. So charming and very private. Already booked two weeks for 2017.

Great house and location, private setting

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the house and had a wonderful time. The setting is very private and the fenced-in back yard is perfect for children, grilling out and relaxing. The location is also great - it's a short walk to Steps Beach, Something Natural and town. Highly recommended.

A lovely home with an outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Nantucket for over thirty years. This home has one of the best locations we have ever stayed at--it is literally a mile to Children's Beach or a mile into downtown. Each morning I walked to Children's Beach for yoga--it was perfect! Any night we had dinner in town, we walked--that is particularly important when you go in August and parking is a premium. The house itself is very comfortable and lovely. It has an enchanting deck and backyard which my family spent many hours reading and playing Spades at the table. The beds are very comfortable and there was more than enough room for our family of five (3 high school and college age children and two adults!) The Landlord is also very nice and responsive. A huge thumbs up!

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this house off Cliff Rd on Nantucket! The house is bright and airy and the upstairs bedrooms are big and clean with very comfortable beds. The backyard is fenced - kids can play while parents relax on the deck. The owner made himself and his caretakers available - we knew we were in good hands with the house AND nearby restaurant and island suggestions (note: house is super close to Something Natural and Cliff bike path!) Had such a great week in 2011 that we returned in 2012. Wholeheartedly recommend!

Why Ronald Neumunz chose Cliff

I have known Nantucket since my college days, when I worked as a waiter at The Club Car. It's always been a special place, and I wanted my daughters to enjoy the same experiences I have had there. The house appealed because of it's flexibility (the property can handle a large family or just a couple) and rural feel, but very close to town. I travel too much to get here often, so I like to relax once I've arrived and not worry about driving miles to town. The new bicycle path on Cliff has been a great treat for my children and an unexpected location bonus.

The property has mature plantings so during the summer it is difficult to see any neighbor from the house.

What makes this house unique

The property is close to town and a hidden beach (Town center - a few minutes by car, or a 15 minute walk; Hinkley Beach - 5 minutes on bike, or an 7 minute walk), yet the property is very private, with mature landscaping on a rural road. Privacy and proximity. Westmoor Club a short walk away.
