About Sandie Owen

Welcome to the Nor'West Cottage! I first fell in love with Nantucket 1973 and have spent many summers here. I am now a year round resident on island and love the sense of community! We built the cottage in 1997 and have enjoyed meeting our wonderful renters.

Sandie Owen purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Sandie Owen chose Nantucket Island

Total serenity, star filled nights, fabulous outdoor shower under the stars and large beautifully landscaped yard.

What makes this cottage unique

Daffodil Week End at Nor'West

  • 5 of 5

We so much enjoyed our long week end at Nor'West cottage over Daffodil week end. The cottage is so lovely bright and "homey", the pictures are accurate but do not capture the warmth and energy the cottage has.

We certainly would recommend the cottage to our friends and family, Andy and Sandie are delightful hosts, accommodating and gracious.

We loved our week end so much we are thinking of another week end soon.

My family and I stayed at...

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at The Nor'west cottage a few years ago, the pictures are exactly as I remember it. It is clean and comfortable and in a quiet part of the island. We all had a great time there, and the price was very reasonable compared to some of the other places we checked into. The

Owens family are very nice and acommodating also.
