Unique Nantucket GEM!

  • 5 of 5

This home was far and away the best place I've ever stayed in Nantucket. I've been going to ACK for the past 20 years and have stayed just about everywhere in the island - but this was far and away the best Nantucket stay we have had!! The home is gorgeous, idyllic and perfectly situated.

Karen was a delight to interact with - as she was very responsive and super honest. We could not have asked for a better experience.

We have ZERO complaints and have decided no ACK trip will now be complete with a day at Madequecham.

Can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. Loved that it was a short walk to the beach with incredible views of the ocean. The house was perfect for our needs. It was well appointed, everything from kitchens wares to beach chairs. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the back deck late afternoon/early evening before we had our dinner of fresh fish caught earlier in the surf. Can't wait to go back!!!!

Upstate Beach Bums

  • 5 of 5

This house is a true treasure. This was our first visit to Nantucket and we will definitely be back! The house is comfortable and spacious for our family of six. Our 3 boys really loved the access to the beach and the surf. The house has everything you need and more. The outdoor shower was delicious! Realize that this is a secluded portion of Nantucket that provides peace and tranquility but off the beaten path (literally) for those looking for easy access to bike paths etc. Karen and Bill, thank you so much for sharing this gem!!

My family has rented this beautiful cottage 6 times. Everything about it is top shelf. The location is private, the beach is wide and pristine, the surf is fantastic. The cottage is designed perfectly, plenty of room for 8, and the large back deck is awesome for family dinners! We love this part of the island, it is so beautiful, secluded, yet convenient to Town and Siasconset. In my opinion, there is no better place on the island!!!
