Property description

Air-conditioned, romantic and secluded In the Lee is in Nantucket Town's Old Historic District facing an 18th-Century quiet, working windmill. It is only a 10-minute delightful walk to shops, restaurants, theaters, beaches and Nantucket Harbor, and a 2-minute walk to the Island-wide shuttle bus stop and bike paths. Guests can walk to Brant Point, Jetties, Children’s, Francis Street and Steps beaches. With this superb location -- the Island's best -- no car is necessary, but In the Lee has two off-street parking spaces at the end of the long, winding driveway.

This tucked-away home has a tile floor; hand-hooked hand-dyed wool rugs with Nantucket, nautical and floral themes; a brick patio for relaxing and grilling; outdoor shower with hot and cold water; and beyond it is a grass backyard where children can play and everyone can enjoy the chaises and Adirondack chairs while sunbathing, chatting, reading and eating.

Other Amenities : In the Lee also has complimentary high-speed Internet (Wi-Fi), a washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave oven, blender, Keurig with K-cups, all linens, beach towels, all cooking utensils, fish poacher, lobster pot, charcoal BBQ grill, beach chairs (they can be carried or worn on the back and have a pouch to hold what you need at the beach), books, cable TV, VCR, DVD player, sound system, books (including cookbooks), children's toys, and fresh flowers.

Caretaker: The caretaker lives nearby. She therefore is able to respond quickly to tenants' needs, ensuring their comfort and enjoyment. She gives tenants literature, Island maps and the Nantucket Restaurant guide. For a fee, she will pick up groceries and supplies to stock the refrigerator before tenants arrive.
