About the property

This cottage is like a breath of fresh air, when you walk in. The living area has high ceilings, with bead board covered walls and lots of windows that look out on the gardens of blue hydrangeas. The inside reflects the outside with a blue, yellow and white color scheme.

Special art work reflects this in every room in the house. White painted floors are throughout the entire cottage with area rugs in every room. A white kitchen, with tumbled granite counter tops, Viking range, Bosch dishwasher and Sub Zero refrigerator is open to the rest of the living area. A round dining table with 4 chairs provides a great area for candlelight dinners at home. A sofa is located in this area along with a large flat screen tv inside the armoire. There is a twin day bed in the half bedroom. White floor to ceiling subway ceramic tile capsulates the bathroom walls, complimented by marble floors. This bathroom also has a spacious shower, along with all white bath towels and linens. The large master bedroom has a queen bed, flat screen TV inside pine armoire, along with a desk area. It has one closet for clothing and the other closet is a stack washer/dryer.

Flower gardens, arbors and trellis' adorn the outside of the house, with 4 white Adirondack chairs in the yard and a large farm table with benches for outdoor dining.

There are 2 adult bikes at the cottage for your use.

This cottage was completely renovated in 2007 and is owned by an interior designer. The Enchanted Cottage has all the quaint characteristics that Nantucket has to offer and will enhance your visit to this wonderful island.

About Jan

I am an interior designer and I live in Boston. I have always loved coming to Nantucket and dreamed of owning a special place there. My dream came true a few years ago, when I found the Enchanted Cottage. I spend as much time on the island as my schedule will allow.

Jan purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Jan chose Nantucket Island

I love the Sconset area for its charm. There is no where like it. Every street is like a postcard!!

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is located on the bike path that goes from Sconset into town. You can also enjoy sitting in the front yard, in the Adirondack chairs and watching the bikers and walkers pass by!! Also, you can hop on the island shuttle just a few yards away from the house, which will take you into town or other

parts of the island.

A Magicial Place on Nantucket Island

  • 5 of 5

We just visited this lovely cottage last week and we were delighted with every aspect of the beautiful decor the comfy bed, the wonderful kitchen and bathroom. The ambiance is typically Nantucket. The furnishings all all very high end and the property is lovely. Very comfy home to come to after a day at the beach or a day in town shopping! Walking distance to the beach and the charming town of Siasconset. Excellent back deck for dinners looking out to a beautiful hydrangia garden. Property very well kept excellent detail to all interior furnishings. This is a lovely cottage for a week or longer!! Bikes, BBQ and all you need is included. Great resturants in Siasconset and town,

Our favourites were Siaconset Cafe, Cru, The Galley and Clam Bake on the beach - Meals on Keels from The Lobster Trap which we enjoyed on Siaconset Beach and dusk. Overall i would recommend this to friends and family! A wonderrful getaway and the host we very accomodating and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for a great time.

Delightful and divine!

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly lovely getaway destination! Casually elegant setting with sophisticated design details, vintage charm, a well-equipped kitchen and gorgeous garden setting. We loved riding the bikes to the beach, exploring the island’s many wonders and visiting the Sconset market for provisions and treats. Excellent communication with owner and a 5-star vacation experience in every way :)

Relaxing Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Enchanted Cottage is adorable, a lovely relaxing place to vacation! The pictures truly represent this beautiful cottage. One item not shown in the pictures is a wonderful porch perfect for dining, relaxing, and watching the sunset. The unit was very clean and there was a local caretaker for any questions I had. The kitchen was well equip with all that was needed for cooking. I highly recommend this cottage and would also recommend having a vehicle to get around.

Truly an Enchanted Property!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just stayed at the Enchanted Cottage. What a wonderful place -- 5 stars! It is extremely well decorated, clean and has been recently redone. This was our first time to Nantucket and we loved the area (near Sconset) and the accommodations. The house comes with everything you need to have a terrific stay in Nantucket -- extremely comfortable bed, great mountain bikes, WiFi, flat screen TV with DVD and cable, etc.
