About David Ernst
The house has been in our family since it was built in 1956 by Morris Ernst, my grandfather. It has been used as a summer home by my parents, who were diplomats in the foreign service. More recently, my family has used the house summers as a base for sailing, surfing, swimming, mountain and road-biking on Nantucket, vacationing with friends, and sometimes, working remotely.
David Ernst purchased this Cottage in 1956
