Enjoy our great family vacation home - The ''PoorHouse''. For over 50 years the Poor family has enjoyed regular visits and family reunions on Nantucket. We invite you to share our home and our special insider hints on how best to enjoy Nantucket, just as if you, too, have been coming for decades.
Our historic house is in a very quiet neighborhood in town, but just a short 10 minute walk to the bottom of Main Street and all the activity ''downtown'', and an easy bike ride to beaches. There are four bedrooms and three baths, for up to seven guests. There is a large fenced-in yard - great for children. You'll find everything you need for a wonderful visit - linens, beach towels, washer/dryer, gas grill, cable, and wi-fi. The renovated kitchen is comfortably well-appointed. The house is heated for your comfort in chilly weather, with fireplaces downstairs for a warm welcome on a cold day. The house is equipped with window air conditioning.
The PoorHouse is perfect for a long weekend or week or more to create perfect memories. If you are visiting Nantucket for one of the many festivals that take place during the shoulder season (including the Daffodil Weekend, the Film, Dance, Book, Wine and Cranberry Festivals, and Christmas Stroll), or are part of a wedding celebration or reunion, our house is a perfect base of operations. You will have easy access to all the activity, and yet be able to retreat to your quiet home for a much needed break.
With advanced notice, we can help you with special arrangements for golfing, sailing, tennis, a clambake, a fishing trip, catering for a special event...or almost anything you could imagine doing on Nantucket.
