Walk to Stunning Beaches,Charming, Carefree, Renovated House

Bedrooms 3
Property type house


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Only about a half mile from Nantucket’s stunning Surfside beaches come home - through the lavender and thyme scented borders, behind the hydrangeas - to find your Nantucket porch swing waiting at the front of this charming 3bed/2bath home.

Inside, enjoy the light filled, open-plan living and dining room with mahogany floors and freshly painted interior. Relax on the comfy sectional with room for the whole family to take in some TV or dvds after a fabulous day at the beach, golf (4 miles), yummy Bartlett's Farm (4.7), Cisco Brewery (4.3) or browsing Main Streets shops, restaurants, museums and galleries (2.9). We also have games and books (in both English and French - oui, nous parlons Français!) for you to enjoy.

The renovated shaker kitchen with new dishwasher, stove & microwave has all the appliances and equipment that you could need with a family-sized stainless steel fridge and plenty of storage for stress free meals in the dining room or on the back patio.

Built-in bookcases and a stylish mix of antiques and modern furniture and appliances (dyson fans, new washer and dryer in a laundry cupboard) makes for easy living with plenty of island charm.

The family bath with claw-footed bathtub/shower is both charming and convenient.

Upstairs is the large master suite including an ensuite bathroom with a romantic marble double shower, a walk-in closet and additional storage. A Nantucket style queen room and a smaller room with a bunk bed makes for comfortable sleeping for 6.

The stone patio at the back of the house has teak furniture and the indispensable outdoor shower off to the side for privacy.

Our lovely Nantucket house sits well back on an acre of land leaving lots of lawn for the kids to play or for adults to sit and enjoy the beautiful garden. There is plenty of parking if you feel you need a car. We rarely use our car on island.

We are delighted to supply high quality, all natural linens and towels, beach chairs, coolers and just about everything needed for a Nantucket vacation that wonderful memories are made of.

Our changeover day is now Sunday.

The word from our guests:

'Nous Aimons Folger!'

'I want to thank you for a wonderful rental experience. We have rented many houses over the years and I cannot remember such a pleasurable experience. The house was in perfect condition and everything ran so smoothly from the lawn service, garbage pick-up, housekeeper, etc. It was so nice to have the well stocked beach chairs, towels, umbrellas and additional bikes as well, thank you.'

'Everything was perfect for us. Your house and gardens are very private, quiet and well appointed.'

'We loved the house and location! The house is beautiful and we spent many happy hours hanging out in the beautiful grounds.'

'The house is perfect - nice and private, close to the beach, fully stocked. We love Nantucket.'

'Out door shower, outdoor dining and Oh! the gardens!!

Our Favorite Nantucket Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful cottage last summer and will eagerly return this summer. My adult siblings overlapped with us for a few days and they were as taken with the house and gardens as we were. The house is so lovely. Quiet, cozy, beautiful. There are several outdoor spaces for sitting and reading and coffee drinking while the kids are still sleeping. We walked to the beach every day and with the 6 excellent bikes provided by the generous cottage owner, an afternoon bike ride to Cisco and Miacomet became part of our routine. I can't say enough about this cottage, its location, its comfort and style and its lovely accommodating owner. South of France meets Nantucket. Can't wait to go back!

An Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

Wow! My wife, children, and I decided to take our in-laws to Nantucket, a love of theirs, for their 50th wedding anniversary. It had been 12 years since my wife and I had visited Nantucket and we had no idea where we wanted to stay. That was of course until we located this house (12 Folger Ave.) online. For such a special occasion we wanted everything to be perfect, and PERFECTION is what we found. It was obvious from our first contact with the owner that she was different from all others we were dialoging with about rentals on Nantucket. She truly cared about our experience and went well-above and beyond expectations. She was flexible, knowledgeable, blessed with a marvelous personality, and responsive; all solidifying that we could trust her and that we were in good hands.

Then we arrived at the house. We traveled up the gravel driveway (incredibly well-maintained) and parked our cars. Two large Salix trees created a natural archway leading toward the front of the house. As you walk between the Salix, suddenly your eyes fall upon the remarkable winding stone walkway lined with beautiful flowers. As your eyes lift you're in awe of the private from porch with the swing and chairs. Hydrangea line the front of the porch. Inside the house, it is decorated meticulously. No detail missed. My in-laws comment summed it up. "This is the nicest rental house we have ever stayed in throughout our years of travel (They travel constantly). Our family agreed. It amazed me that my best memories of the week on Nantucket are all at the house. It is that special.

Of course having it stocked with bikes, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, everything a kitchen could need were all wonderful; but what makes 12 Folger different than any other rental is true care for the property and the rentals we experienced from the owner. There is no doubt that the next time we travel to Nantucket we will be staying at this house. It would be virtually impossible to top it.

Perfect In Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of returning to this beautiful home in mid-June for a second time. As a family of four, with twins in college, once again it looked like the shoulder season fit our summer schedules best. When we brought up summer vacation last winter, returning to Nantucket and this gorgeous, comfortable, well located home was the unanimous first choice. My husband and I have been vacationing in Nantucket on and off for 26 years. Until we discovered this house, we always stayed in town, but we are now total “converts” to the mid-island stay.

With grown kids away at school, it's all about being together, and this lovely home lent itself to that so well. From there, we biked to four different beaches. Bikes are included, even one with a wagon to cart groceries, or beach supplies, which are also included. We biked to Bartlett Farms to buy fresh produce, Cisco Brewery to hear a band, and into town for dining and souvenir shopping. This year we rented a car for a few days and caught a perfect Madaket sunset. My daughter and I love to cook, which is such a pleasure in Nancy’s well appointed kitchen. The house is immaculate and spectacular in every way, with a great selection of books, music, games, and a dock to play your own music. Seems like Nancy thought of everything, right down to the most comfortable bed linens to lull you into a good sleep. Upon leaving, my husband and I gave a look, knowing we shared the same thoughts, hoping for at least one more return trip here with our kids to make more Nantucket memories.

Amazing ACK Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here over Memorial day weekend with 5 other friends. Nancy's home is beautifully maintained and incredibly comfortable. From the fully stocked kitchen to the immaculate gardens to the spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, the home served as the perfect island spot for some rest and relaxation. I would highly recommend this home for groups of friends and families alike! Moreover, Nancy is so enjoyable to communicate with that you never feel anything less than welcomed.

The Best Vacation and the Best House!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house was amazing!!! It was exactly as I pictured it! The house was clean and had everything you could possibly need. The beds and sheet were incredible! The outdoor shower was amazing after returning from the beach. The owner was so easy to work with!!! My family had the best time in Nantucket and mainly because the house felt like it was our home!! We rode the bikes that is supplied with the house everywhere. We cant wait to return one day and I will only stay here!! Thanks for one of our favorite vacations!!

12 Folger is an adorable Nantucket cottage. The home was in perfect condition with very nice amenities from nice linens and a well appointed kitchen to beach chairs, unbrellas and even a selection of bikes to use. A wonderful private yard with beautiful gardens an outdoor shower and two areas for al fresco dining. The owner's attention to detail is seen and felt throughout. A true gem. We will definitely be returning.
