You should seriously consider taking a car to stay in this house. We are 7 miles from Nantucket Town and in the shoulder season there is bus service to the village of 'Sconset only once or twice an hour-the bus stop is 0.7 miles from the house. Taxi/Uber is available with the ride fee of about $25 (depends on the number of passengers) to our cottage from the boat docks or $20 from the airport. Although you can easily ride a bicycle to Town on a safe bike path, it is no fun in the rain.
A car be driven over on the Woods Hole, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket Steamship Authority (you must make your own reservations as far as possible in advance at: https://www.steamshipauthority.com/visitors/nantucket).
Cars are also available to rent on the island-reservations required for car rentals.

Year Purchased: 1978
About the owner: I am a physician and Professor at Harvard Medical School. My wife and I first came to Nantucket in 1972 and we have been back every summer since. I worked in the hospital for 5 years and then we bought the land and built this house. Our children and grandchildren consider Nantucket their summer home. This is easy living. There are a huge variety of summer activities available on the island including outdoor activities such as fishing, tennis, golf, biking, hiking, beach walking and the like. I enjoy making Nantucket Lightship baskets and there are many classs that one can take to learn this unique island art form.
Why the Owner Chose Siasconset, Nantucket, MA, USA:
Our location is on Nantucket, a busy summer resort, but it is in a very quiet part of the island. Many people with houses in the Town of Nantucket come to 'Sconset for the summer because of its cool ocean breezes and relaxed pace of life. The area near our house is safe for little children to play, while there are lots of activities very close by so you or your older children never wonder-what to do.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our location is always cool. In the summer the prevailing wind is from the southwest and we are on the southwest shore. As you listen to the ocean washing up on the beach you feel the cool sea breezes and can enjoy being outside. The beach is a short walk away, so you can stroll down before dinner and collect shells or just sit and watch the waves. We have accumulated books and games for all ages and leave them for you to use during your visit.
