Description

The Boat House (an actual boathouse many years ago) is on Hither Creek 6 miles from the center of town in the sleepy village of Madaket. The Boat House is a charming cottage on the water with views of wildlife and spectacular sunsets. Relax on the deck and watch the boats come and go. Enjoy your breakfast sitting on the deck at the picnic table and then relax with your favorite book on chaise lounge chairs. Grab a beach chair, a towel, and sun block, and walk the 1/4 mile to the beach for a swim in the surf. Head back to the Boat House, rinse off in the outside shower and head to town on the shuttle for a dinner at one of the many fine restaurants. Or if you want to stay in Madaket, it's only a short walk up to Millie's Restaurant. Eating in is always an option, so fire up the grill and sit on the deck and watch some of the most spectacular sunsets imaginable.
Beach sand chairs, beach towels, additional outside shower, cooler, telephone, internet access with wifi, cable television, flat screen tv, radio, DVD player, coffee pot, hair dryer, single vehicle parking, on-site washer and dryer are all included. Dishwasher is not included.
There are two bedrooms, one with a king bed and the second one has two twin beds. The one bathroom has an oversized walk in shower and there is also an outside shower.
Besides taxis and Uber, THE WAVE, is available to and from Madaket leaving town in front of the Whaling Museum located on Broad Street. The Wave service to Madaket begins the end of May and ends the beginning of September. You can access real time information about bus locations, estimated arrivals, from your computer or internet enabled cell phone. The Stops are identified by grey posts with blue stripes. Please have exact change ready when you board as drivers do not make change.

Comfortable Cottage Away from the Crowd
The Boathouse remains a wonderful rental, great location and stunning views. Bill and Kathy are wonderful hosts, very accommodating, thoughtful and knowledgeable about what to do on Nantucket! We look forward to coming out again next season.

The house with a “Million Dollar View”
Bill greeted us on our arrival and was most helpful in making us feel comfortable with his inside tips and his great sense of humor. The Boathouse has all you’ll need for your stay and is in a perfect part of the island if you’re ready to unwind. We met Kathy a few days later and she was as nice as Bill. We had a wonderful week here and wouldn’t hesitate to visit again.

Perfect sunsets every night!
We couldn’t have asked for a better stay! Thank you so much Kathy and Bill! It was an absolute pleasure to stay at the Boathouse. Exceptionally clean, everything you can think of that you would need even laundry and dish soap, perfect sunset views, pans and a grill to cook breakfast, and I could go on. Thank you again so much for your hospitality! We loved our stay and much needed quiet rest away from the city. Definitely planning to come again.

Amazing sunsets, well appointed waterfront home
Bill and Kathy were amazing; they made us feel right at home. The were so understanding of our son with special needs and made our stay as stress free as possible. Well appointed home with everything you could think of already there. Sunsets were amazing each and every night. Definitely a gem. We can't wait to come back!

Serenity and beauty in Madaket
The Boathouse is a hidden jewel tucked away on Madaket harbor. The house is short walk or bike ride to the beach, but you may just want to lounge on the deck and enjoy the view. The shuttle bus and bike trails are nearby for trips around the island. Property was immaculate and well appointed. Bill and Kathy were lovely hosts, very helpful and quick to respond to questions and offer suggestions for making the most of the trip. We hope to be back again next season! show more show less

Gem in Madaket.....
The Boathouse and it's owner's, Kathy and Bill were wonderful. The house overlooks the water, and the sunsets are amazing. The house was extremely clean, bright, and cozy, with warm attention paid to every detail. A short walk will take you to beautiful Madaket Beach. Stop at Millie's Tavern on the way back, and have some lunch! We truly did not want to leave! As I write this review, I'm thinking about the peaceful feeling I had sitting on the deck, which is literally on the water, watching the boats glide peacefully in and out of the bay, with the sounds of the gulls as they glide overhead. You really can't get any better then this! If you are looking for a "quiet, peaceful, walk to the beach, incredible view" kind of place, look no more. We look forward to returning next summer.

Simple, charming living
We had the most wonderful stay at The Boathouse. The views were beautiful from this quaint home and we all enjoyed the simple, relaxing lifestyle of this quintessential Nantucket cottage. The owners couldn't have been nicer and made sure we had what we needed for a comfortable stay.

A true Gem!
This is a special place lovingly cared for and executed by a wonderful couple. I can't say enough about how everything was perfect from the cottage, that had everything you needed, to the deck that has one of the most special view's of the water in the whole world. Viewing the stars at night was another nature experience that the Greider's told us about and I am so glad they did. We just loved this place!

Heaven on Earth
I just had such a wonderful long weekend at Bill and Kathy's Boat House, celebrating the 70th birthday of a dear friend with our mutual friend who flew in from Chicago. The location was exactly what we wanted - private, quiet, peaceful, and just so beautiful that we couldn't stop taking photographs. The accommodations were fresh and clean, and we had everything that we needed. The location can't be beat - a short walk to beautiful Madaket Beach and to Millie's, a delicious restaurant. We were also a quick walk to the island shuttle when we wanted to venture into downtown. But who would want to ever leave that magical deck??? I can't say enough great things about our stay. Bill and Kathy were perfect hosts, and they were very helpful when I was planning the trip. Thank you for an incredible wonderful weekend, and I hope to return again someday! HIGHLY recommended!!!!

Bill and Kathy have ties to Nantucket. Bill, a native, met Kathy when she started working on the island the summer of 1965 at her Grandmother’s bakery. They were married and eventually Bill’s job required a move to Foxborough, MA. Kathy was busy being a mom for their two sons and working in the payroll industry. Today, they spend time with their children and grandchildren and enjoy pursuing their interests. They look forward to enjoying their retirement on the island they love and sharing this beautiful spot with you.


What is special about this property?
You get front row seat from the deck of the Boat House for the most amazing Nantucket sunsets. Relaxing serene views of Hither Creek and the starry nights are romantic and quiet.

What is special about your town?
Madaket is one of the most desirable locations on Nantucket. Located on the west end of the island, Madaket is still the sleepy little village. It is the quieter and cooler part of the island. If your looking for a relaxing peaceful vacation Madaket is the place for you. Yet, it is just a quick 15 minute trip into town.
