Description

Description

This warm and private, 1850's Nantucket Island half-Cape has every amenity a vacation rental home can offer. Located in the Old Historic District of Nantucket Town, it is situated on a quiet one-way lane just minutes from Main Street and convenient to all of the activities of the Island. The property offers off-street parking and a private fenced yard with patio. Note that one of the great features about the location of the house is its proximity to Straight Wharf, downtown, and most of the Nantucket centerpieces of activity — all within a short walking distance. Additionally, most of the island transportation services are close by including public busing and van taxis, both at very modest expense. Please do not feel compelled to bring a car over. It only adds to the logistical challenges of planning, especially this year. Most renters forgo their own vehicle and the requirement that someone travel with the vehicle to get it on and off the island. Don’t let the expense and difficulty in getting a vehicle over to the island deter you from a true vacation thirty miles out to sea!

The home has three bedrooms and three baths, accommodating up to six people; living-room, dining room, gourmet kitchen; chef's pantry; and laundry/mud room. This 1850 antique half-Cape was completely renovated in 2004. The entire house is completely insulated. The house is heated with radiant heat. There is new plumbing and wiring throughout along with new interior walls. The gourmet kitchen has an antique heart pine floor, hickory cabinets, four burner with griddle gas dual fuel range and granite counters. Appliances are state-of-the-art. All three bedrooms are on the second floor (two queens and two twins).

General Comments: Situated on a quiet one-way street with minimal traffic, this inviting home is tranquil and meets all of your living needs. Easy eight minute walk to Main Street. No public street parking and island shuttle bus stop is at end of Weymouth Street.

House Description: The house is a circa 1850 half-Cape. It was completely remodeled and updated in 2004. There are three full baths in the home; two new full baths, one on the first floor, one on the second floor, each with a shower and a remodeled full bath with tub on the second floor. All three bedrooms are on the second floor: two queen sized and two twin beds. It has a state-of-the-art kitchen and is comfortable for a couple or a party of six. The patio has a private bricked in area with a gas grill. There is ample off-street parking for one car.

From June 1 to September 12, rentals are minimum one week. Both before and after those dates, weekend rentals are available as reflected in the Availability link. Pricing is determined by time of year, length of stay, and number of people. The Availability calendar does not provide for exact pricing for such rentals and it is necessary to communicate with the owner for such information. Please include number in group and length of proposed rental. There are many midweek rentals available in April, May, September and October between weekend rentals.

Perfect Getaway

We had a perfect getaway in this quaint 1850's house. Coming from a historic home ourselves we felt right at home. I loved how close it was to town yet we also had the privacy of a lovely backyard. The home provided all the amenities needed for our Nantucket stay. The owner Greg was a pleasure to work with. We can't wait to come back.

Our home away from home

We have stayed at many properties over the past 30 years coming to Nantucket, but this charming house is by far our favorite. The house is easy walking distance to town and even has the rare to find parking spot. The kitchen is a home chef's dream and the outside patio is the perfect place for coffee, after beach drinks or BBQ'ing. The inside of the house has all the charm one would expect from a house built in the 1850's. We have stayed here in the summer and the fall, and both times of year we have found this property very pleasant and without a doubt, a fantastic value for anyone that is looking to stay in town. Greg is great to work with and has always been attentive to our needs and questions. Can't recommend this place enough! show more show less

Great Vacation on Nantucket

Family of 5 (3 adult children) spent the week of July 11th 2020 at this Nantucket home and had a great experience! Owners and property were amazing, and everyone truly enjoyed their week on the Island. Location of property was perfect for a short stroll to downtown and all the restaurants, shops and "people watching".

No need for a car with this rental, as Taxi and Island Bus services are within a few minute walk and will get you to any beach or even over to Cisco Brewery. Property brings you back to how the old Captain's lived on the Island, and home was well appointed, clean, bright, with a great fully functional and updated kitchen to prepare those meals while not dining out on the Island. If you have Nantucket on your radar for a summer get away, you will not be disappointed with this home. We look forward to our 2021 summer vacation at this property. show more show less

Great Home and Great Location

This was our second year staying at this house. We love the location. It is on a quiet street close to everything - town, bike paths, grocery store. It has a great yard with patio. This was awesome during COVID, we enjoyed a lot of time playing yard games and having dinner outside. The house has a lot of original charm with some updates including kitchen and nice bathrooms. The bedrooms have AC - a plus for the few warmer nights. . We had a great time here in Nantucket again and look forward to coming back. show more show less

Great Cottage on Quiet Street

This is a great cottage with very good proximity to the shops in town. It is an old house but they have a lot of great updates if you need modern amenities and the charm is off the charts. Great backyard for grilling and gathering, nice kitchen and family room. Clean. Highly recommend.

A perfect home away from home

My husband and I have been spending the summers on Nantucket for 10 years. During that time we stayed at several other summer houses. Then we found this home and now no longer have to spend time looking for any place else! It checked all of the boxes we needed; walking distance to town, pet friendly, outdoor space, old world charm, cooks kitchen including all the necessities, and a parking space.

If your preference is a brand new McMansion type construction rental, this is not the place for you. However, If you are looking for old Nantucket charm in a quaint 19th Century house that feels like home away from home, look no further. The owner Greg couldn't have been more helpful through the entire renting process and we are already booked for 2020! We can't wait to come back to Nantucket to our home away from home. show more show less

Weymouth Street

We had a fantastic fall getaway in Nantucket at Weymouth St, despite the fact that we arrived in heavy rain and, we now realize, we have no visual memory of our arrival-- it was raining too hard!
Despite the rain, the house is so central and convenient, we were able to bike all over the island. When we weren't biking, we were walking into town for shopping, meals and the Whaling Museum.
The house built in 1852 has retained its antique character. It is very comfortable and is equipped with a very modern kitchen with great appliances and a wonderful laundry. The yard is private and provides a lovely outdoor space.
The house is well represented by its pictures. It is not modern and sleek, but rather a wonderfully comfortable representation of an in town home.

Comfy and Quiet Town House

We found this house to be a very comfortable and quiet place for three couples plus infant. The kitchen and laundry appliances plus the bathrooms and beds are up to date. The place is fully equipped with sand toys, chairs and towels for beach days. The side yard with grill and patio is a great asset for an in-town house. And, the house has a couple of 1850 era features that are fun to work with. The location is near-perfect for 10 min walks to all the downtown shops, attractions and the grocery store. One can easily bike or bus to the beaches – we went 7 days without a car. Greg, the owner, is straightforward, responsive and easy to deal with. show more show less

Lovely cottage walking distance to town!

We had the pleasure of staying at this property last summer for two weeks and it was just fantastic. The best part... the back yard! We sat out there every day drinking wine or playing cards. It was private and quiet. Second best part... the distance to town! Whenever we wanted to go to town for ice cream, dinner, etc., it was just a 10 minute walk to wherever we wanted to go and no worrying about parking.

Greg was so responsive and kind and always answered our questions promptly. I would certainly recommend this charming cottage with history. It is the perfect example of old Nantucket quaint charm. show more show less

Great Family Getaway

My family has enjoyed multiple visits to this lovely and well located home. Updated kitchen, beautifully maintained garden, historical charm and owner's warm welcome make this a very comfortable home away from home. Location makes walking to town or visiting beaches easy. We have been big fans of biking to nearby Children's Beach or Jetties Beach.

I have been renting out to vacationers since 1991. I understand the amenities needed by parties for an enjoyable stay in Nantucket. This house is a short walk of about eight or nine minutes to Main Street. You do not need a car to enjoy this house and the island. The shuttle bus is very inexpensive to use and will take you anywhere on the island. I have had scores of satisfied renters. I am on this website venue simply due to the fact that it more than adequately serves the vacation needs of those wishing to rent a Nantucket in-town house and want to avoid the booking fees charged by other vacation websites. You will find me to be reliable and easy to deal with in setting up your Nantucket rental. I look forward to assisting you in securing your Nantucket vacation rental, whether it is for a weekend or for a week or more.

What is special about this property?
This home is an original 1850 half-Cape which represents the Old Nantucket in every sense integrated with amenities as to living comfort. It has been updated with all of the features you would expect in a vacation rental: gourmet kitchen, two new bathrooms (with showers) and a restored half-bath with tub, a quiet and private patio, retained architectural features such as wood plank floors and decoration consistent with its period. It is not “faux Nantucket”. Simply put, it is warm and cozy, inside and out, without the feeling of too much or too little house. It is the perfect fit. Our family loves it. Countless numbers of vacationers have shared this home with us as their vacation rental, many of which return year after year.

What is special about your town?
Nothing compares to the unique beauty of Nantucket. It is like being in another world, yet only thirty miles off the New England coast. The house is just a short ten minute walk to Main Street and its abundant cultural attractions and social activities. It is two doors from the Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum.
