With four bedrooms, a loft area and a basement bunk room, we can comfortably sleep 15 in beds. Two different living areas and a dining room table that expands to 13 feet make this a perfect house for multiple families or a large group reunion.

BRAND NEW pool in 2016. The pool is a 20 ft wide by 40 ft long heated, saltwater pool. (no hot tub). The pool has two bluestone patios - one with four chaise lounges and three small tables; and one connecting the pool to the pool cabana, with a seven foot long bar height table with six stools. The cabana is flanked by two private outdoor showers with connected changing areas on either side. The cabana is a a 9x12 ft. room to house pool toys, towels, outdoor kitchenware (plastic plates, glasses and wine glasses) with two oversized chairs and an ottoman.

Please see below a description of rooms, amenities and additional features of this home:


Master Bedroom: Oversized room with queen size W Hotel mattress with luxury linens, walk in closet and en-suite bathroom. Bathroom has double vanity, standing shower and jacuzzi tub. The master bedroom has a desk, if a quiet space to work is required while away.

Downstairs Bedroom: The first floor bedroom has a queen sized bed, and is directly connected to the downstairs full bathroom, with single vanity sink and tub and shower.

Loft: There is a loft, accessed by a ship's ladder, above the great room which has two captain's twin beds. This is a fun sleeping area for kids, but they should be old enough to get up and down the ladder on their own.

Basement Bunk Room: The basement has twin twin bunk beds and a daybed. This is another good area for children. In addition to the bunks, the room has a new 48 inch Smart TV, and a chair for kids to hang out and watch TV. There is a large basement window so the basement does get sunlight in the morning and throughout the day.

We have all the amenities of your home kitchen: toaster, coffee maker, blender, microwave, griddle and waffle maker. We have stocked the house with basic spices, oils and other cooking essentials so you can enjoy meals cooked at home.

Front Living Room: A sunken front living room has a sofa, love seat and chairs which center around the fireplace and new 48 inch Smart TV.

Great Room: The great room at the back of the house is flooded with sunlight and doubles as the dinning room and family room.

The family room has a sofa, an oversized chair and chair with an ottoman arranged around a 58 inch TV, which has Apple TV and Comcast cable. A ships ladder leads to the loft, which has two twin captains beds. The great room has two french doors which open directly onto the back deck, which has a sectional that comfortably seats 10.


The front side entrance brings you directly into the mudroom, which has anchor hooks for towels above benches and is an ideal place to keep all your beach gear, including beach toys, sunscreen and towels. This is right next to the laundry room to clean or dry any items on your return from the beach. We have two brand new washer/dryers for 2017, to support lots of laundry for big groups. You can also walk through the mudroom to the back deck, to any of the three outdoor showers.

Outdoor Areas:

We have a back deck off of the great room, that has a large sectional couch which can comfortably seat 10 people. There is an outdoor shower off of the back deck. Off of the kitchen is a hedged-in brick terrace with a teak outdoor dinning table that seats 8.

The pool has two decks - one with four chaise lounges and one with a bar height table seating 6.

The house is fully stocked with linens and towels, as well as pool&beach towels, 12 beach chairs and a beach umbrella. We have 10 beach cruiser bicycles, which can be used to explore the island. Some of them have baskets while others have rear over-the-wheel racks.

We have wifi, cable, PS3 and Apple TV. The whole house has multi-zone A/C so while you might not need it, it is nice to know you have it.

About Meg

I'm Meg! My husband and I have always loved Nantucket. It is such a special place to us that we decided to get married there. We live in New York full time, but we are always looking for a way to get back out to Nantucket.

We purchased this home in the Fall of 2014. This house has been a very fun and special project for us, and we enjoy sharing our home with both repeat and new visitors to the island.

Big and beautiful.....Inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

We live in New England, so the plan was to have friends and family meet us in Nantucket as their schedules permitted. As few as 5 of us and as many as 13 stayed in the home and everyone was accommodated perfectly.

The key inside was 2 separate living areas, as well as a basement area that worked for the older kids. The inside furnishings were clean and stylish, but most importantly, liveable and felt at ease and able to relax. The outside areas, in particular the pool area, were fantastic. The kids played basketball, Spike Ball, etc...but spent most of their time by the beautiful pool.....a true game changer for a family vacation.

The location is close enough to town and the beach to walk, or ride bikes, but a car, or quick Uber ride should be planned for as well.

Finally, I can't say enough about the fantastic communication from the owner. From the early stages of finding a home and inquring about rates and specific details of the property, to ferry ride info, payments, etc...the owner was incredibly friendly and quick to respond.

We definitely recommend.....enjoy.

Beautiful, huge home, centrally located on Nantucket!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends had a mini reunion weekend and found the perfect spot in Hawthorne Lane. The pictures of this home do not do it justice! There is a ton of indoor and outdoor space. The inside is decorated beautifully. The outdoor space is never ending! The yard is maintained to perfection. There is outdoor furniture to relax by the house or the pool, and a table to enjoy meals outside. There were many bikes (in great shape too) that made it easy to get into town and explore the island. The location was perfect. We were right in between town and Cisco/Cisco beach which made it easy to bike or Uber in short time. I could go on and on about this place and the quick responsiveness of the owners. I highly recommend staying here.

Wonderful home for children and adults

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 3 weeks at this beautiful property. All issues were quickly handled by the owner and their on-island caretaker. The home was comfortable, clean, and has plenty of space for families to spread out or cozy up. The pool is especially wonderful.

Great Vacation Home Rain or Shine!

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations!! It was well equipped and perfectly located - just a short distance from town and beautiful beaches. We were 12 adults visiting for a reunion weekend. We all fit comfortably with room to spare! The furnishings are perfect, full of coastal/island charm and the house was well stocked with anything we might have needed. Even with rain - throughout the entire weekend - there was plenty to do. The beach cruisers were a huge hit for a short ride over to Cisco Brewery or into town for some shopping and dining. The backyard is spacious with a beautiful (and heated!) pool and 3 outdoor showers. Tons of lawn games as well. The guys enjoyed the huge flat screen TVs to watch the Ryder Cup and Sunday football. The owners were great and very attentive to any questions we had. A truly memorable getaway - we can't wait to experience it again under sunny weather! Highly recommended!!

Great vacation rental house!

  • 5 of 5

15 of us (8 adults & 7 kids, ages 12 - 16) stayed for a week in July. The house had everything you need for a week away, i.e.: well stocked kitchen, propane & charcoal grills, plenty of beach towels & chairs, pool & yard toys, beach cruiser bikes. Pool was great to come home to after the beach, outdoor showers a huge plus. House is just down the road from bike trail to Cisco beach and a 1.5 mile bike ride to town. We had a couple issues that were addressed promptly by the owner, Meg. The kids have already begun the vacation plans for next year!

Excellent vacation house! Pool fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Hi we stayed for a week over July 4. The house was well equipped with 3 smart TVs( could access Netflix, Hulu, Apple TV) and a very serviceable kitchen plus outdoor BBQ. We had 6 adults and 5 kids and found the place plenty big enough to accommodate our group. The 10 bikes were extremely convenient for riding to the beaches, town and Cisco brewery. Best thing was the pool. Temperature perfect, color great, lounge chairs were very comfortable. Outdoor seating area was also fantastic for early evening cocktails. Would definitely return

Our home is located just outside of town - down a dirt road, where Milk Street becomes Hummock Pond Road. We have a full acre of cleared lawn with an expansive front and back lawn for games, relaxation and sun.

We are 1.3 miles from town, which if you are visiting in the summer, you would likely want to walk into for shopping, dinner or exploring, even if you have a car, because parking can be very difficult in the crowded summer months.

We are 2.9 miles from the South Shore beaches of Cisco and Miacomet, with Surfside just a little further away. We are right on the bike path, and you and your family can use any of our 10 bikes to bike around the island and to the beaches.

Cisco Brewery is a short walk or ride away at 1.3 miles.
