The Aaron Paddack House was originally built in 1820 for the renowned Captain of the Whaleship Diana and his family.

About Jim R

We have been visiting Nantucket as a family for over 20 years and adore the beauty, history, culture, people and the overall feeling of the island. This is the second home we've owned on Nantucket, and the first historical home. We approached the renovation with a goal of maintaining the historical integrity of the home while assuring it has the comfort, design, and amenities for modern living.

Jim R purchased this house in 2013

Why Jim R chose Nantucket Town

We have put a great amount of thought and effort into creating a comfortable and liveable house while respecting the historic nature of the house and the island. Now In our fourth season of renting since our complete renovation, our guests have loved the decor, location and the many small touches that makes it a "home away from home" for all. Each season we continue to make further upgrades to the decor and amenities, making it a fresh experience for our many returning guests.

What makes this house unique

Wonderful gardens and back yard

Outdoor shower for those beach, bike, running or hiking days

Modern fully equipped high-end kitchen

Close to everything on the island

Very quiet street with minimal traffic

Great remodeled house, in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to Nantucket since I was a kid and was really happy with this rental. Location was perfect, it was an 8-10 minute walk to town, and very easy getting out of town to beaches, supermarket, etc. The house was recently remodeled and done exceptionally well and was very liveable. We had three kids (8/7/5) and they loved the third floor bedroom with three twin beds. Would highly recommend this house for families or other groups who want to be close to town.

Stunning centrally located ACK home

  • 5 of 5

The Aaron Paddack house was a perfect fit for our group. Jim has done an immaculate job of modernizing the home but keeping it true to its roots. It's warm, inviting, and easy to live in. They spared no expense from the quality fixtures and appliances down to the towels and sheets. He was a great communicator prior to our trip and made sure everything was thought of and taken care of during our stay. It was a short walk into town and the perfect location for our stay. We would absolutely come back to stay here again!

Great location, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay on new mill street. The owners left detailed instructions and helpful information for us. The house was well appointed and the location is prime. The outdoor space was where we spent most of our time, so comfortable and charming. We cannot wait to stay at this house again next visit to Nantucket.

Thanks again

Great house for Memorial Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time spending memorial day weekend at this home. The house was absolutely stunning and had everything we needed while we were staying there. Beautiful bedding and furniture. We loved how close it was to town but also felt like it was on a nice quiet street. We would love to stay at this house next time we visit Nantucket.

Great town location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Nantucket/ staying at this house and had a great time. We were two families staying @ the house with 4 little girls. The bedroom on the top floor w/ 4 beds was perfect. The house renovations are great and I love that much of the original detail was retained. The kitchen is good for cooking big meals. The house is a short walk to town which we loved. We rented bikes (no car) and used them to get around the island. The owner was very attentive before we arrived to make sure our stay would be great. Thanks!
