Old world charm in a superb location.

  • 5 of 5

This historic home right in the middle of Town is a gem. It's a beautifully appointed home, with a perfect mix of old world charm together with up to date furnishing. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, there is air conditioning on the second and third floors, and the lodging is comfortable. The location is amazing: truly perfect for kids and adults alike, on a quiet side street in the midst of Nantucket Town. We rented bikes, but only used them for excursions, as there was no need to use them to get around Town. The yard is fenced and immaculately manicured. We too brought our dog; we view dog-friendliness as a mandatory for a dog-friendly island such as Nantucket! We loved our stay, and you will too.

Incredible Home in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this home. My (now) wife and I rented this townhouse the week leading up to our wedding this past Fall, and it was better than we could have imagined. First, the location is amazing- a quiet side street in the center of town, it is both quiet/private and centrally located.

The home itself is truly beautiful, and the pictures don't do it justice. Each room has been impeccably preserved and decorated in the style of the 18th-century colonial townhouse that it is, but has been also updated in terms of bathrooms, kitchen and fixtures to be extremely comfortable. The owner is actually a professional interior designer, and it shows!

The back yard is fenced in (important, as we had our dog with us) and beautifully landscaped and was still in full bloom in late September when we stayed there. And Polly could not have been a more gracious and accommodating host, leaving suggestions for restaurants and nice basket of food and drinks for when we arrived.

We had a high bar for the house in which we were going to spend such an important week, and it far exceeded it. This is our top choice for where we would want to stay on any future trips to the island.

This home is ideally located in heart of Nantucket town just moments to everything. No car is needed. The Whaling Museum, fabulous restaurants, charter fishing boats, galleries, antique shops, bakery, markets, farm stand, pharmacy are all a short walk away. For families with children there are wonderful camps and programs in the arts, sailing, marine science and sports. For those interested in water sports check out Nantucket Community Sailing. ACK Surf located at Cisco Beach (our personal favorite) has a great surf school or personal/group lessons. Cisco Brewery is a favorite casual apres beach destination for locals and visitors alike. Stop in for a couple beers, raw bar, snacks and live music. On Saturdays head over to the Farmers and Craft Market (right off Center Street) for fresh produce, flowers,beautiful hand crafted textiles, gifts jewelry. and gourmet foods, preserves, local honey and more. Both the Dreamland and Starlight theaters are 2 blocks away and show the most up to dates films. Our favorite spot for long walks or runs is Sanford Farm. For a challenging bike ride take Polpis Rd out to Sconset and back. The Yoga room is a tranquil spot for those looking to do yoga or meditat.For a fun casual spot for sunset dinner and drinks head to Millies in Madaket. For a special occasion dinner no place beats The Galley (directly on Jetties Beach) but be sure to make reservations well in advance. There is SO much to see and do on Nantucket. If you have any questions just email us.
