This home was built in 1873, once owned by General William R. Donovan. Nonquitt is a 160-home gated community on Buzzards Bay. Our family has been coming here for several generations of parents, siblings, cousins, and grandchildren! We love Nonquitt, and it truly is a very special place to all who visit.

The 9 bedrooms sleep 14 people, including one first-floor bedroom. Comes equipped with all kitchen needs, bedding, towels, and beach towels. Tons of living space, great for entertaining. The ground floor living and dining space opens onto a screened-in porch that looks out at the water. There is a large yard for badminton and croquet, a large gas grill, and beach chairs in the garage. The house is partially winterized ( 4 bedrooms and 3 baths are heated). The entire home gets east and south sunshine. Popular with guests is the hot/cold outdoor shower, playroom for children, washer/dryer, full kitchen with 2 refrigerators, dishwasher, microwave, internet, cable TV and DVD player, wireless internet.

In addition to the beach out front, we are a two-minute walk from the center of Nonquitt, where golf (a private 9 hole course) and tennis (6 clay courts) take place. Users sign in and pay a small fee for the day. Please inquire for the in/out of season Nonquitt fees for golf and tennis.

**Note: The community of Nonquitt has a policy that requires in-season home rentals to be for a minimum of two weeks. Therefore, we unfortunately cannot offer stays shorter than two weeks during the summer season (June 15-Sept 15).

About Gretchen Daly

My family has been coming to Nonquitt for generations now--as far back as the late 1800's. And it has always been our favorite place -- a true haven that remains unchanged by time, even as the world grows around it! My sisters and I spent our childhood summers here, and this is our parents' home, which we now share and to which we bring our own children and grandchildren!

Spend the day bouncing between tennis on the six clay courts, rounds of golf on the 9-hole course, walks on the beach to find sea glass, swimming off the pier, biking around the community, and taking a jog along the water. Nonquitt is a pristine, secluded, private and gated residential community where children can bike and run around freely and it’s the ultimate in summer relaxation. Walk to the Casino, which houses seminars, dances and art shows, and the Post Office, which sells newspapers and penny candy. Children ages 5-11 can also attend Camp Nonquitt during the summer. Finish each day with a cookout and dinner on the front porch, looking at the water as the sun sets.
