Lockup is a classic beach cottage, very charming, but not fancy. Its location and views are spectacular! For that reason, Lockup has been featured in the 2003 Nantucket Calendar (March), in Robert Gambee's 'Nantucket Island' (1986) and in 'My Nantucket ABC Book' for children. Lockup sits atop the sand dune next to the ocean beach, and you literally walk off the back deck onto the enormous beach. You see water out of every window, and the house is surrounded by decks on 3 sides allowing you to choose sun or shade, breeze or no breeze.
Lockup has been rented for most of the last 30 years by one excellent tenant whenever the owners were not on island. This summer Lockup is available for outside rental during the specified periods shown on our calendar.
Lockup has 4 bedrooms and two baths. Upstairs there is a king master with windows on 3 sides; a twin bedroom with the ocean view; a triple with a view of the harbor; and a bathroom with a small clawfoot tub. Downstairs there is a queen bedroom off the kitchen offering privacy. There is one bathroom downstairs, and a separate indoor shower, which is rarely used as occupants prefer the outdoor shower with a view of the ocean. The living area downstairs includes the living room, dining room, kitchen and laundry room. The kitchen is well stocked, and the back deck is ideal for grilling. A Weber gas grill is provided. Chaise lounges and outdoor furniture are positioned on each deck.
Lockup is a refuge from a busy and stressful life, and it lends itself to fun, relaxation, beautiful sunsets and enjoying nature. There is a 5 miles protected wildlife wilderness immediately to the north of the village leading to Great Point.
High speed internet and wifi are provided, but there is no TV. The line had to be drawn somewhere, as Lockup is about reconnecting with family and each other.

The Wauwinet Spa is only a very short walk away.
Year Purchased: 1965
About the owner: Lockup was purchased by our parents as a 25th anniversary gift to each other in 1965. The original living room and dining room on the ground floor and the two bedrooms above were moved up the dune and perched on the top of the bluff overlooking both the ocean and Wauwinet harbor. A new kitchen, bathroom, laundry room and master bedroom above were then added. Later, a wing was added on the ground floor, which is now a queen bedroom.
Why the Owner Chose Nantucket, MA, USA:
Lockup is ideally situated right on the ocean beach and only a short walk from the harbor. Lockup combines simplicity and charm, and it has nurtured the soul for generations.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Unparalleled views and situated on one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere.
