Description

Description

Step back into historic summer Nantucket at this Shimmo summer cottage overlooking Nantucket harbor, with panoramic views of town, Brant Point and Coatue. A three minute walk on sandy roads to private beach. ''Sweep Out'' is pristine and beautifully decorated, a classic summer cottage but up to date with WiFi and, of course, local cell service. Located between Monomoy and Polpis, the house is a short drive to town. The feeling from the spacious deck is one of being away from the hustle & bustle of town but also with a full view of harbor harbor activity, with the colorful boats coming and going from the island.

The layout of the five bedrooms is conducive to multi-generational occupancy for a rich and rewarding family vacation. Of the two bedrooms not pictured below, one has a bunk bed, perfect for kids, and the other twin beds. All bedrooms are wired for cable, and all three bathrooms have recently been renovated, each with a tub and shower. The fully equipped kitchen includes a Cuisinart and other gourmet amenities.

In short, ''Sweep Out'' affords a perfect place to get away from it all while staying in touch with the beauty and festive activity that is Nantucket.

Swept Away

We so enjoyed our stay at this large tucked away home very well suited for inter-generational families. The rear deck which overlooks Nantucket Harbor is just perfect for those idyllic Nantucket sunsets. The proximity to Town, 'Sconset, Surfside Beach made it all easy! My entire family so enjoyed our stay at "Sweep Out"!

A glorious week!

What a wonderful, relaxing week we spent at Sweep Out! It is a delightful, unpretentious, rambling cottage, simply and very attractively appointed, that is ideal for a multi-generational group. Our daughter and son-in-law had the downstairs "wing" along with their two babies, and we had the master bedroom upstairs. We could easily have fit our son and his wife in the other upstairs room, and even my Mom would have had separate and easily accessible digs in the charming little room with bath on the other end of the house. We loved the deck all day long, whether for breakfast or for drinks watching the sun set over the harbor. I loved walking the network of sandy roads each morning, and it was an easy hop to the bike path and also easy to get to the grocery store without having to brave town traffic. In fact, I'm ready to live there full time! show more show less

Lovely Nantucket Cottage Rental

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "Sweep Out." We had a fantastic week! The cottage is charming, "beach casual," and very comfortable with a lovely deck that has wonderful afternoon light. We sat outside several evenings watching both gorgeous sunsets and a dramatic lightning storms. The bedroom arrangement worked beautifully for our multi-generational family. We were a group of two families with kids plus a grandmother. The five bedroom arrangement was perfect: Two master bedrooms (one king, one double/queen?), one bunk room, and two twin rooms fit us perfectly. All of the bedrooms are Nantucket CUTE!! --Pleasant furnishing and lovely period fabric and details.

The location is 5 minutes to the center of "Town" in a car, 15 minutes on a bike (--but you must be comfortable riding to Town alongside a constant stream of traffic (in August), but it is still easy for adults and experienced kids. The wonderful Nantucket bike trail system (no traffic!) is 5 minutes on a sand road from the house. We used our bikes extensively and had a so much fun! (We had a mixed group of bikers, some never ventured into town on a bike because they feared the traffic, yet they loved the miles of paved bike trails and covered the island. The rest of our group found pedaling into town a snap, and did it every day. But, to be honest, the route into town might be tricky for very young or inexperienced bikers in peak season. The streets in "Town" are 19th century and narrow and you share them with the cars.

I would share that the house also worked well for preparing a casual group dinner at home. We ate at home most evenings and had everything we needed for a casual BBQ and fresh-caught Blue Fish feast. This rental was exactly what we expected and we had a great week.

Finally, I want to mention that having the owners nearby was great because they really want to make your stay wonderful and were very solicitous and helpful on all levels. We were happy to have them in the vicinity!

Just a great Nantucket cottage. Casual and beachy but pristine.
Sunset views over the harbor (from first floor), walk down to Shimmo beach, total privacy and 3 minutes to Rotary. Doesn't get much better. Great beach cottage. We are looking forward to our 4th year.....

Sweep Out

It is rare to find this type of 1930's summer house in the rental market. Sweep Out is maintained with white cotton slip-covered chairs and sofas, all piped in soft Nantucket blues and greens set off by weathered gray trimboard throughout the house. The long living - dining room is casual elegance at its beachy best. The kitchen is well equipped and set up with a drinks bar, the view is of Nantucket Harbor and a short walk to Shimmo's private association beach. We loved being a couple of miles from town, a perfect bike ride away. The bedrooms were set up well on two floors for older family and guests. Beautiful linens, outdoor shower and furniture, a line to dry towels and suits. We hope to return. show more show less

Wonderful Nantucket

None of the photographs of this Nantucket cottage do it justice. The view of Nantucket Harbor in the distance is enchanting. One can even time the ferry arrivals. The cottage is large enough and so well laid out that there is privacy for guests of different ages to enjoy themselves without feeling crowded. The kitchen is especially well equipped, and the bedrooms are well furnished. There are good books in every room, as well as games. This is a very best of old Nantucket; well located for the beach, the bicycle paths and for exploring the island. Our family of three generations had a wonderful time. show more show less
