About the property

3 Bedrooms - 2 Full Bathrooms - Sleeps 5

You can easily walk anywhere in town, to many of the stores and restaurants just outside of town. There are convenient shuttles running frequently to take you anywhere on the island for a minimal fare--plus reasonable and prompt taxi service when needed--it is entirely possible to enjoy the best of Nantucket from this location without having to rent a car. However, the house offers two parking spaces, highly sought after in the high season, for guests or your car(s).

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have stayed at this property for the last several years, and we just love it!

Patsy and her family have renovated something each year, and the house is charming.

We love to sit in the bright and breezy living room in the late afternoon to watch the sunset.

Best is its location - close to town, yet away from traffic, Both foot and vehicle, so it's very private and quiet. We'll stay every year if we can!

Cozy and quaint

  • 2 of 5

Patsy couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. The house was cozy, quiet and quaint. The living room was recently redecorated and full of sunlight. The kitchen is outdated and not well equipped for cooking. Bathrooms are tiny with only one shower that's a moldy tub shower with hose attachment. Outdoor shower is not workable. Laundry is in creepy back room of basement. Location was very convenient to town with plenty of parking. Ceiling height a problem for anyone over six feet tall.

Owner's Response: Our lovely little house is undergoing serious renovation. A new kitchen with washer-dryer and new bathroom are scheduled for 2016. Our most competent caretaker, as stated in our rental agreement, is on call 7/7 and 24/24 for any household problems. We are careful to restore 17 Academy lane in a modern, yet charming Nantucket style.

Cozy, quaint, perfect!

  • 4 of 5

I rented Patsy's Nantucket home for a long weekend getaway for the wine festival, and it was absolutely perfect for our group! It's charming with a historic feel, but each of us had plenty of room to move about without getting in each other's way (between the kitchen table, front sitting room, and outdoor space) and were quite comfortable. There is really only one shower (upstairs bathroom has tub with attachment you can hold), but we never had any issues with sharing. Less than 1/2 a mile from town made our frequent shopping trips and meals out very accessible. Patsy and her caretaker were so accommodating to our arrival & departure schedule so that we didn't have to carry our luggage around with us. Thank you for a great stay!

Can not say enough good things about this cottage and its owner!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation on Nantucket was wonderful from the moment we first emailed Patsy (the owner) til weeks after we returned home and she sent us the items we accidentally left in her home. My husband and I have enjoyed vacationing in Nantucket for years but generally stayed in a BnB..this year we brought our four youngest children (ages 3 to 13) to experience the island as a family ....the house was perfect for our larger family...much roomier even then in pictures. Everything that you need is included with the home. We could easily walk to downtown and Children's Beach (we did not bring a car). In addition to being roomy and well was super clean. Highly recommend!

Great location and amenities!

The house on Academy Lane was perfect. It is set at the end of a road and only a 5 minute walk from town. There is a large front yard with hidden patio area. The house came with everything you would need from extra linens, to beach towels and kitchen supplies. Perfect for a Nantucket getaway.

The house is located in the middle of Nantucket’s historic district, on a quiet cul-de-sac at the top of Academy Hill, one block up from the Jared Coffin House. It is set behind a large lawn adjacent to the Academy Hill Apartments, and in back, overlooks Lily Street and beyond, a nature preserve.

Nantucket is a wonderful place to be in many seasons, not just during the summer. Although we close the house for the winter months, we would consider opening it in the spring (early June)or fall (September) for a rental of a minimum of a week for the off-season rate of $2,700 per week.
