Charming cottage with fantastic location!
We had a wonderful week in this pretty house. The property is ideally located right in the centre of Sconset. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and beautifully presented. The host was extremely helpful and welcoming. Can't wait to visit again soon.
True Sconset experience!
This is a beautiful refurbished and updated old house in historic 'Sconset center with all the charm of the 18th century. It is well equipped with everything we needed for our week on Nantucket. The owner is nearby and when we needed a few lightbulbs, he responded immediately by showing up and putting them in. The location is perfect as it takes minutes to walk down to Sconset beach or the market, the beautiful Summer House and Chanticleer, as well as the must do bluff walk up to Sankaty Light. Though quaint and true to period, it is furnished very comfortably with all the modern amenities you need for a perfect vacation.If you are looking for a true 'Sconset experience, Rooftree is a great choice.
Charming, comfy and historical cottage in the heart of a beautiful seaside village!
Rooftree is just as lovely and historical as advertised, with nicely modern amenities and amazing proximity to all of Sconset’s charms. The house is very well stocked with provisions (charcoal, spices, shampoo, soap, towels and other linens, etc.) and very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
We enjoyed our stay at Rooftree. It is a great location in Sconset and it is very comfortable. We hope to rent it again.
Great house in the heart of Sconset. Nicely appointed with many recent updates.
Great house in great condition. A/C is rarely needed in Sconset but was a nice addition on our arrival day. Updated bathrooms and good sized bedrooms. Nice little patio for relaxing and working the BBQ.
Washer/Dryer and dishwasher in good shape.
House feels bigger than it is.
we really enjoyed the home
Nantucket Island is located 30 miles out to sea from the town of Hyannis on Cape Cod. The historic village of 'Sconset on the eastern end of the island was originally where the fishermen would harpoon whales from the shore, jump in their boats and go for a 'Nantucket Sleigh Ride'. This lovely village, where time has stood still, has 4 restaurants, a liquor store, grocery store, art gallery, the Siasconset Casino has tennis courts that can be used by visitors during the midday (tennis whites are mandatory) and shows movies 2 nights a week. Visitors enjoy strolling the narrow streets, smelling the fragrant roses, photographing the quaint houses and even setting up easels to spend days painting. The beach is a five minute walk from the house and has on duty life guards. Families picnic on the beach and can enjoy early morning coffee watching the sunrise, as well as an evening stroll. The Historic Town of Nantucket is 7 miles away and can be reached by car or public transportation and it also boasts museums, shopping and public library and a lovely children's beach with daily entertainment. A renovated movie theater and an active acting community that produces plays all summer long are in town as well. Both 'Sconset and the Town of Nantucket have an active night life with dining and live music. For golfing enthusiasts the Miacomet GC located 11 miles away on the western end of the island was voted the #1 public course in New England and the top 5 in the country 2013.
Lastly the island has lovely beaches which are not crowded where one can swim, surf, fish or simply fly a kite while enjoying the fresh air
