A delightful old 3 1/2 bedroom house on a quiet street in town across from Lily Pond sanctuary. A 5 min. walk leads to the town center and an easy 10 min. by foot to the ferry docks, restaurants, harbor, and shuttle bus stops to reach other areas of the island such as Surfside, ‘Sconset and Madaket. A quaint unrenovated home that takes visitors back in time to an earlier era, located in a beautiful and historic Nantucket neighborhood and is an ideal base for visitors who want to relax at one of the many island beaches, bicycle around the island, visit Nantucket’s famous restaurants, or simply read a good book.
The house, built about 1847, has a large, eat-in kitchen with fridge, gas stove, microwave, toaster oven, and washer/dryer. There is also a front sitting room and dining room. It has a small private backyard. The old TV works with VCR only (& free wifi Internet at the Nantucket Athenaeum within a 5 minute walk)
It has many antique features including steep staircase to second floor.
Expression of Interest/Booking: We will do our best to get back to you within 24 hours of your inquiry, but we ask that you also advise us promptly if you decide not to pursue a rental of this property. Please ask us any questions you need to ask, and take as much time as you need, but understand that we cannot hold a period without payment in full and a signed contract.
To avoid unfairness in booking, we will furnish you with a contract shortly after you contact us. The first signed contract returned to us with full payment will guarantee the period. In case of ties, the earlier postmark or acceptance by postal or commercial delivery service will prevail.
Thanks, and have a great time on Nantucket wherever you stay!

This is a wonderful house to enjoy the special experiences of Nantucket: great beaches, unspoiled moors, interesting old neighborhoods, church towers, the whaling museum, wind mill, bird sanctuaries, the head of the harbor, sea-kayaking, sailing, windsurfing & body surfing, or just lolling about in air which is 10 degrees cooler than the mainland. A great place to decompress - sit and listen to the birds, watch the clouds, the morning mist in June, fish for bluefish from the beach, look at the huge turtles in the ponds, etc. Just inhale the fresh air, or hang out on a bench on Main Street and watch the people go by...
The house evokes an earlier era when Nantucket was a relaxed summer destination for artists, writers, and teachers. With refreshing Nantucket breezes, the private backyard garden is a quiet haven for sipping a cool drink while enjoying your summer reading or writing after a time at the beach... with only the songbirds to disturb you.

Why the Owner Chose Nantucket Town, Nantucket, MA, USA:
This was one of a pair of workman's houses built shortly before Nantucket lost a fair number of men to the California Gold Rush. It has been used as a simple summer cottage from the turn of the century (no, the prior century!) Once upon a time, summer folk would arrive on the steamer Nobska from Woods Hole or New Bedford and spend the entire summer with friends and acquaintances from the island. While your stay might not be all summer, enjoy new friends and a beautiful old island with perpetually lovely beaches...
