About the Property

Oceanfront Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Scallop is a beautifully furnished 3-bedroom oceanfront cottage on Smith's Point, at the western tip of Nantucket. The kitchen was renovated this year with quartz countertops (with seating for three at the island), new appliances, cabinets, lighting and paintwork.

Smith's Point is prized for its tranquility, easy access to the water and amazing sunsets. The cottage faces the ocean to the west and faces the head of Hither Creek, a salt water inlet, to the south. It is about 300 feet from a beautiful surf beach and about three blocks from the calm Madaket Harbor beach. The cottage's website is www.nantucketcottageforrent.com.

The living room has a beautiful ocean view and opens onto a second-story deck with the same great view. Outside, on ground level, overlooking Hither Creek, there is a patio with a teak table and chairs and a deck with outdoor chairs. The cottage also features a nice large flat lawn and an outdoor shower.

The cottage is within walking distance of Millie's, a casual restaurant and convenience store, and a stop for the shuttle bus to town. The cottage is also close to the Madaket bike path, part of Nantucket's excellent network of bike paths.

Nantucket offers world-class dining, shopping, golf, fishing and outdoor adventures. For kids, the island offers great day camps, sports lessons and other activities. You will love it!

Upon booking, half the rent is due. The balance of the rent and the security deposit are due in April.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We bought The Scallop in 2004, after selling a cottage in Surfside, on the south shore of the island. We have two young boys who love their visits to the cottage and the chance to explore the island.

Why the Owner Chose Smith Point, Nantucket, MA, USA:
We chose the location due to its wonderful access to beaches and boating opportunities, as well as lack of traffic (both car and air traffic). Crossing over the bridge to Smith Point is like taking a step back in time. We find it incredibly relaxing.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage offers easy, quick access to both the surf beach and the harbor beach. You can go downtown and explore the shops and restaurants, or just stay out in our peaceful part of the island. We are a short walk from Millie's restaurant and convenience shop. Nantucket also offers a great network of bike trails and a great shuttle bus system, including a stop near the cottage.
