About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
The first floor plan is open, the furnishings and art collection selected by and for cognoscenti, and the kitchen designed by a serious cook. When day is done, there's a cozy, tucked away, sky lighted, first floor bedroom & adjacent bath offering privacy to a second couple.
The second floor master bedroom suite includes a side room with day bed, foyer, and bath. Don't even lift your head from the pillow to watch the sunrise to the east, or the birds staging themselves for breakfast amid the canopy of branches to the west. The side room also enjoys a westerly view of the meadow behind the property. The sunsets are spectacular!
Just steps away form the historic 'Three Bricks' on magnificent, elm shaded, upper Main Street; quiet, private Howard Court is a short, five minute walk to Town center. Designed for a totally self-indulgent summer idyll, the property is perfectly located, allowing occupants and their guests plenty of flexibility for both at-home or walking distance activities, without the need for a car; though the property does provide off-street parking for one vehicle.
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.

About the owner: My husband and I met on the Island in the mid '80's and have family that live here year round. We finished renovated all floors, all paint interior, changing out light fixtures, and new furniture (our style is english country). We finished adding to the outside. Slate patio, new lawn, garden beds, garden lighting and stone path. We are, " gilding the Lilly" as we are opening the cottage spring 2017. Making sure all details are attended to. Daffodil weekend is a Joyful time of year to kick off springs first kiss with flowers abound. Truly the daffodil is a marvel of splendor with intricate details. Bartlett farms has a wonderful island display. The beaches are yours for the walking, jogging, or sheer beauty of just watching the waves. This brisk time of year the island is buzzing as the pace takes on, "summers almost here" atmosphere. If your anxious to get away and relax our tucked away cottage is just the spot. As summer arrives so does the bustle of beach goers. If you are unfamiliar with the island or have been able to enjoy the shores too often to count we are happy to help with activities. Should fall-Autums last caress- be your retreat time for R&R few spots could be sweeter. We enjoy family and travel. We are enjoying raising our family in New Jersey. We live on a small farm. While we enjoy raising and showing Lincoln Sheep we stay busy with all the critters! If we do not get back to your email straight away it is because of the joys of country living.*** Please note for security reasons we prefer to speak with the renter prior to securing your dates. We want to protect you and ourselves from any fraud/scams. We will never ask payment to be wired for that very reason. ps Sundays is our day of rest please if inquiring note Monday I check computer by 11am.
Why the Owner Chose Nantucket Town, Nantucket, MA, USA:
We had been looking for a small in-town property. When we saw this cottage tucked away on a side street. We knew immediately it was exactly what we were hoping for. The side streets of downtown lend themselves to wandering. Just off the beaten path and yet a 5 minute walk to the heart of town.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Nestled among the gardens on a quaint shell lane in the historic center of Nantucket Town, this circa 1827/1850 carriage house offers historic charm while providing the comforts of modern amenities and gracious living. It's a real life fairy tale cottage. Some call it magical!
