Small but winderful
Great little property - really well done.
PHL to ACK for a perfect stay at Time & Tide
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Time & Tide Cottage. The home was more than enough for two of us, very “Nantucket” in style, and in a great location for us to enjoy town as well as the outskirts. Melanie was very pleasant to deal with and prompt with communication. We would definitely stay again.
Time and Tide
The cottage is wonderful and Melanie is a great host. Strongly recommend for a long weekend or extended stay. Cottage is newly renovated and close to town on a quiet street.
Everything We Could Have Dreamed Of
Time & Tide was everything we could have dreamed of and more! I am already wanting to plan another visit. When you arrive there are complimentary beverages, maps, and unique guidebooks about the island. Loved the peaceful setting of the cottage. Beautiful interior with very comfortable bedding. It was a dream! The cottage was so well decorated, clean and cozy. We enjoyed eating al fresco on the lawn and riding bikes into town. The location was perfect. An easy walk/bike ride to the Harbor. The concierge was amazing took care of us - excellent advance reservations and directions to everything we needed. We will definitely be back! They absolutely think of everything, and these special little extras do not go unnoticed!
