About Barbara A. White

My husband and I taught in the Nantucket public schools for over 30 years. Mark taught English and drama and I taught history. I am a local history fellow and specialize in the island's rich black history. I have several books in the local bookstores including "A Line in the Sand" about Nantucket's school integration crisis in the 1840s. I also wrote "Hidden History of Nantucket" with a friend, a collection of quirky Nantucket stories. We are avid travelers and have taken advantage of our retirement to do as much travel as we can.

Why Barbara A. White chose Nantucket Island

We love our island location, close to town, close to the beach and on a dead-end road so that we have privacy.

Another great year on ACK

  • 5 of 5

Another great vacation! House was perfect as last year, but with some recent updates (new windows, deck chairs, fridge) AND new super comfy mattresses on all the beds. Kids loved watching the fire flies at night and the 3 bunnies in the morning...oh and the fawn visit was a plus too. Saw my 1st shooting star (only took 42 years) as the night sky is perfect for star gazing. Highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Thank you for being such wonderful guests and for taking such good care of the cottage. It was a pleasure to host your lovely family once again. And, thank you for the kind gift, too! But, we can't take credit for the animals!

Wonderful week at lovely Nantucket cottage

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying at Barbara and Mark's cottage near the southern shore of Nantucket. This serene house is well decorated, equipped and maintained. There is a walking path to the local beach and the location also makes it easy to drive all over the island.

Cozy comfort in Nantucket

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place. A little off the beaten path which was just fine with me. Everything was clean and in good shape. WiFi kept me well connected. More cable channels than anyone could use if that is important to you.

Inside tip...with the nice hardwood floors be sure to bring your slippers!

Every utensil you could ever need was available. The gas range has all the heat to cook anything you can dream up. The grill outside worked well even on the blustery early May evenings.

The reason I didn't give 5 stars is the infernal bathroom vent that clacked continuously. Made it difficult to appreciate to complete quiet that the location has to offer.

With that said, this property still provided all the comforts of home while away from home.

Making Memories

  • 5 of 5

The home was charming, comfortable and perfect for a couple looking for memorable time away together. You could hear the ocean surf in the background, the deck offered a relaxing setting to chill and watch the birds, and the surf was a short walk away when you want a beach fix. Our hosts, Barbara and Mark, where gracious. We're planning our return trip already!

Owner's Response: And, these were wonderful guests. They even filled the bird feeders and left a big bag of seed. They also left the cottage spotlessly clean.

Our stay at 73 Pochick

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Barbara and Marks cottage for the second time was fantastic. Everything was just as special as our first visit. Both cottage and Island are awesome. Cottage is clean quite, and well appointed. Went to all of the Islands south shore beaches to watch the surfers surf the hurricane waves. (Jose & Maria) Thanks Barbara & Mark.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at the cottage for two years in a row and taking such good care of it. We worried that the hurricanes had spoiled your visit. We hope that you will return another year and have better fishing!

Car: recommended

We are close to both Nobadeer and Surfside Beaches and 3 1/2 miles from the town of Nantucket. On the map, we are on Pochick - to the left of Adams Street and to the right of Irving. Google Maps does not place the cottage correctly. Note: Pochick is a bumpy dirt road.

Other Activities: Bird watching

Golf: Nantucket has several private, exclusive golf courses as well as one public course: Miacomet Golf Course.
