Description

Description

Welcome to our home ( sleeps 8 comfortably) in the Madaket Harbor Village area of Nantucket. 17 Washington Ave is referred to as an ''upside down Cape'' with living quarters upstairs and sleeping quarters downstairs. The house is newly restored and in perfect working order, from the kitchen appliances to the outside shower. The house features comfortable furniture, wide pine floors in keeping with the Nantucket tradition.
The master bedroom accommodates a queen size bed, with a walk in closet, jacuzzi tub/separate shower/bathtub. The second bedroom accommodates twin beds, closets, and full bathroom. In addition to the two described bedrooms, the Summer Room hosts a double futon/closet and privacy. A queen, pullout couch is available in the upstairs family area.
The combination family/kitchen/dining room is mindfully stocked with culinary amenities. A half bath is located off this area.
The separate laundry room (first floor) is equipped with a full size washer/dryer. The first floor deck opens to the privacy of an enclosed backyard and the outside shower.
You will enjoy spectacular views Madaket Harbor known for its breath taking SUNSET over Tuckernuck Island. All of this is visible both from the upstairs living room and the upper deck. The ''Gathering'' is located within a ten minute walking distance from the ocean, a short stroll to one of the best beaches on the Island, close enough to hear the waves breaking at night. Equally enticing is the majestic view of Madaket Harbor with its breeze brushed, sea grass and scalloping boats (a brisk one minute walk from the front door).
FYI..... Nantucket Shuttle stops are accessible in two walking locations near the house with plenty of room for your bike. Even closer than Madaket Beach is ''Madaket Millies'' Restaurant & Take Out as well as a small convenient store for those last minute ''ah ohs''
If this is what you're looking for, we promise you won't be disappointed.

Great Vacation

We had a perfect stay! We shared the week with my sister and her family, and there was plenty of room. The owners have thought of everything that a vacationer would want or need. The house is a short walk from Madaket Beach and Millie's Market, and the bus stop is close by, too. We hope to return next summer!

Special Place

There's a gang of us who meet here every summer and it has become one of the highlights of our year. It captures the spirit of Madaket perfectly. Although it is a distinctly modern lodging, you still feel as though you've gone back in time. Outdoor shower, recent updates, and very spacious interior- you can't go wrong for the value. Especially compared to some of the other rentals nearby! By far this is the most unique and magical place we have vacationed. It's super cozy but provides plenty of sprawl and it's just a quick walk to the beach. Now I'm getting myself all excited for our upcoming getaway! You better book it quick while there's still time! show more show less

Perfect Getaway

I’ve stayed at the Gathering several times for the perfect Nantucket getaway. My favorite thing about the location is the 5 minute stroll to the beach, the 25 minute bike ride ( cheap bike rentals) to the downtown (or short shuttle ride) and the quiet surrounding neighborhood. Sometimes you’ll even see some wild bunnies hopping around on the lawn!! The house is set up perfectly to accommodate families or larger groups and I love the open concept kitchen & living room space which also connects to a deck where everyone can truly hang out and “gather.” There’s an outside shower which is a plus and a wonderful option for post beach rinse offs or just a regular shower. This place is amazing. I highly recommend it. show more show less

Best Vacation Spot

We have stayed at the Gather for the past several years and absolutely love it. There is only a few minute walk to the beach which is never crowded where the kids can boogie board in the waves. The beach faces right toward the sunset which is absolutely stunning to watch every night. Next to the beach is a great restaurant, market and a shuttle pick up to take you into town. The house itself is amazing with hardwood floors a 2nd floor kitchen/family room and 2nd floor deck with a gas grill. The ideal place for family or friends to get away from it all. show more show less

Perfect Stay

I have stayed at the Gathering many times over the years. The location is very convenient to get to the beach, nearby restaurant, small market and the shuttle into town. Whether going with friends or family, this house is perfect for any amount of time. Beautiful sunset views from the 2nd floor porch while grilling dinner or just taking in the ocean breeze. We love the 2nd floor kitchen/living area which allows for everyone to hang out comfortably. The beds and futon are also very comfortable. There is an outdoor shower that is perfect after a day at the beach. I highly recommend this property! show more show less

The Gathering is Your Home Away from Home

A short walk away from the beach and Millie’s, it’s the perfect spot to spend time with family, friends, and loved ones. Beautiful view of the famous Madaket sunset and close to The Wave shuttle stop if you feel like going into town. I have many happy memories in this house and plan on making many more.

An Oasis, Even by Nantucket Standards

I stayed at The Gathering in late June, and both the house and location were perfect. It is just a quick walk down the street to the Madaket beach, which is never crowded and offers sunsets only a smog-free island like Nantucket can provide. I have been coming to Nantucket for over two decades, and I am now convinced Madaket is the best place to stay on the island. I don't know how it took me so long to rent a house here. A true reprieve from crowds and tourists, a stay at The Gathering is a genuine, old school vacation. This was my best Nantucket trip yet.

The house itself appeared newly remodeled, and provides everything you need with comfort and style. Several bedrooms, three bathrooms, a large living room, a comfortable and spacious basement, a strategically located terrace with views of the sunset, and a great outdoor shower. An historic bar/restaurant is located at the entrance to the beach, serving classic "Madaket mysteries" and tasty food. If you want to head to the center of town (why?), you can drive/cab or take a $2 bus ride from a stop 3 minutes from the house (leaves every 30 minutes).

Finally, the owner Kathleen responded immediately when I mistakenly thought there was a problem with the wifi (there wasn't: The issue was with my laptop).

In short, you can't go wrong. Stay at The Gathering and thank me later.

Perfect Getaway

This isn't the first time I've stayed at The Gathering, but since I keep returning I thought it's high time to leave a review of it.

It really does have everything we need for a respite from the city. I love the outdoor shower so much! It's so quiet on the West End and nothing makes me happier than listening to the birds chatter on the side porch while catching those candy colored sunsets. The beach is so close. I love being able to come back to the house for a afternoon nap when the sun is too much. It's easy to catch the bus at Madaket Millie's to head in to downtown but I really enjoy being away from the bustle on this part of the island. We generally hit the grocery store and do most of our cooking and grilling at the house. Whoever decorated has a thoughful eye for colors and comfort. I adore the kitchen curtains with the sweet little shells dangling from the hem. On the whole, it's perfect for our family's purposes and we look forward to renting again. show more show less

Perfect location

This was our 2nd consecutive year staying at this property, and for our needs, it is the perfect house and location. Our criteria of easy beach and bike path access and peaceful evenings is met with this property and location. Located in Madaket, you are ~5 miles from the center of Nantucket. However, the added bonus of being steps away from a Nantucket shuttle stop (The Wave) gets you into town in minutes and serves as your designated driver during the evening. If you don't feel like going into town, the popular MIllies Restaurant is a 5 minute walk. Or, you can grill on the house deck and enjoy your own food and wine. The house is ideal for 4 adults, but does offer a variety of additional sleep options for large or extended families to comfortably sleep 8. The open and spacious 2nd level has a well equipped kitchen, dining table and relaxing sitting area where we would read or watch a movie after a long day of beaching or biking. The owners obviously take care of their property as it is in great condition with updated appliances. There are many options on Nantucket, but we will continue to rent here as it meets all our needs. show more show less
