Property description

This cottage is a one bedroom with a sleep loft (with twin beds) that can sleep 6 in total.
There is a large great room with cable TV, WiFi, a quenn sized pull-out sofa, and a dining area that seats 6.
Outside is large deck with a charcoal grill, pretty yard, out door furniture, and an outdoor shower - perfect for washing the sand off.
The cottage was just recently renovated - though it has retained all of its charm. The cottage was originally built at the turn of the last century and the addition of the great room was added in 2000.
The kitchen has a table for two (perfect for morning coffee.) It is fully stocked with dishes and appliances.
The bedroom has a queen sized bed, dressers, a large closet, (a portable crib in the closet) and maps of Nantucket on the walls. In the bedroom is the ladder leading to the sleep loft that has 2 twin beds.
There is a small washer and dryer in the bathroom. The bathroom has a shower and no tub.
