Old world charm in a superb location.
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
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.
THANK YOU POLLY!
