About the property

4 Bedroom/4 Bath Main House and 1 Bedroom/1 Bath Cottage

This lovingly restored and expanded five bedroom 18th century farmhouse and guest cottage is located midway between Wauwinet and Quidnet on a quiet mile and a half stretch of private beach accessible only to the contiguous homes. The house offers generous front and side yards and comfortable indoor living spaces with all of the modern amenities of a recent, high end renovation. The house is decorated and furnished in a traditionally casual style consistent with its historical essence, and the owners have taken care to enhance tenants' experience with thoughtful fittings such as high quality linens (which are professionally pressed each week) and a generous and gracious appointment of cookware, flatware, stemware, and table linens.

Beach access is via an one hundred yard private path and stair down the bluff.

Can"t say enough about this property

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to rent this home in July 2016 for 6 adults, 2 kids and dogs.

Beautifully appointed rooms, comfortable beds, large exquisite bathrooms and five star linens. The spacious lawn with its various zones allowed our blended families to each have their own space and not feel on the top of each other.

The private beach is a dream...just a short walk through some privets and then down a steep set of stairs. We never saw more than 10 people during a peak summer week. Our dogs loved frolicking in the sand and then hosing off in the outdoor shower. The beach tends to be rocky depending on the tide-so if your"re sensitive you might want water shoes. Perfect spot for long walks, boogey boarding or just relaxing. We chose Squam for it's remote, private location. Town is about 20 minutes away, but once you get the house stocked with food and beverages, you'll never want to leave. Owner/operator was quick to reply with any issue and was a pleasure. We are looking forward to renting 75 Squam again!

Like staying at The Wauwinet, only better!

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous home is in tip-top shape -- beautifully furnished and ideally located for a relaxing family beach vacation. We had a wonderful stay last summer with our children. The house had everything we could possibly need or want, down to canvas beach bags on hooks by the door. All we had to do was pack our bags, take a shopping trip to Bartlett's Farm and we were set for the week. We didn't want to leave this tranquil area of Nantucket. The owners are lovely, and they have clearly put a lot of effort into updating and maintaining this property. Highly recommend!!

Wonderful stay on squam road

  • 5 of 5

Our Family stayed in the cottage for 2 weeks in August and had the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The owner stopped by to introduce himself and see if we needed anything which was extremely welcoming. We would love to stay there again and recommend it to any families looking for a beach vacation away from it all.

Charming pristine home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The owners have gone to great lengths to update and furnish this exceptional property in one of the most beautiful special spots on the island. We have a home on the island in town but wanted to experience a different part of Nantucket. It exceeded our expectations. The attentive owner was kind enough to allow us to bring our puppy who loved every minute chasing bunnies that hopped around the spacious garden. The home has everything you could ever need. The interiors were thoughtfully chosen, gorgeous bathrooms and the kitchen was expertly equipped. The stargazing is spectacular from this spot and we loved experiencing this tight-knit but very welcoming Squam community. Complete gem!

Stunning home in perfect location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house in late August and cannot say enough about it or the owners. The house has been beautifully renovated and is extremely well maintained. The finishes, linens, baths, etc. all make the house feel like a home and not a rental. There was plenty of room for our family of 5, and even with another couple and their baby staying with us for a good part of the trip, we each had our own space and privacy (and we didn't even use the great little guest house!). Fantastic yard for the kids to play - big, very private and great landscaping - and a very short stroll down the steps to the beach. The location is our favorite on the island and we have been coming to Squam / Wauwinet with our family for several years now. We love the serenity and relaxation we get in Squam - out of the fray with an entire stretch of beach basically to yourself. While this is the first time renting this house, we have rented from the owners previously at another property in Squam and they are fabulous to deal with. Accommodating, responsive and just nice people. It also helps that they are usually on island when we tend to go, so if we ever need anything or have questions, they are close by and always willing to come by (though can't say we have ever really needed much!). Can't say enough about it...we will definitely rent the house again!!
